7 Quick Takes {no. 10}

It's been a while y'all. And I miss you! Glad to be back for this week's 7 quick takes.

I've had a small case of blogger's block. But! I am hoping to join Jen for her 7 posts in 7 days challenge that starts Monday. Last time she presented this challenge I hadn't started writing my blog, but I *loved* the week because I had so many blog posts to read! Looking forward to joining in the fun next week. Wish me luck!

Lately I've been dreaming of days like this...
{give me a warm sunny day by the water!}
or this...
{palm trees, beautiful flowers & a margarita...yes, please!}
Unfortunately, NYC does not look like either of those images at the moment. It's a foggy/rainy day right now, though I'm not complaining that the temperature is supposed to get up to 55 degrees.
{screenshot from a live Times Square camera this morning - dreary!}
It is a bit depressing to see more snow and highs in the 20s in the ten-day forecast.
Is there a patron saint of springtime? Pray for us!

I have been enjoying the Olympics quite a bit these past couple weeks. Watching the figure skating is always my favorite. My mom & I always watched it together growing up. Now we both watch and we text our thoughts to each other throughout the night. It's been so much fun. Wishing Gracie Gold could have medaled last night. And I loved seeing Meryl Davis & Charlie White take the gold medal in ice dancing! Go blue!

It should be a pretty low-key weekend here for me. Maybe I'll get a head start on blogging for next week? I'm also looking forward to attending my friend's baby shower this Sunday. What a blessing!
Hope you all have wonderful weekends, and I'll see you Monday. :)

Linking up at Conversion Diary with Jen and many more lovely bloggers.

  1. Love the Olympics here as well.
    My Peyton has been watching it the most. She loves the skating, and that weird curling too. : )
    Have a cozy weekend!

  2. I love the figure skating too! It's amazing how talented those people are! I hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy the shower! :)

  3. Wasn't watching Charlie and Meryl win the best...its crazy b/c apparently so many of the skaters and ice dancers train near where we live...I may need to get an autograph ;)

  4. GIVE ME A WARM SUNNY DAY BY THE WATER. AHHHH!!! So done with all this snow.
