Five things I’ve been consuming or enjoying this week (5/25/18).
This woman is a boss y’all. This documentary is so good! Get out there and learn about champion for women’s rights, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (a.k.a. The Dissenter, Notorious RBG). My husband left the movie thinking, “If RBG can work until 4:00 AM, I certainly better get back to work on a Friday.” I left thinking, “I hope I can still work out an hour every day when I’m 85 years old.” [Wikipedia] [IMdb]
Rockin’ Green Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent.
This detergent is marketed towards athletes as a “super cleaner” of active wear (e.g., DriFit). I’ve used it as detergent a couple times, but it really stood out this week when I had to handwash a dress. I soaked the dress in a bowl of water with a tablespoon of Rockin’ Green and its “broad spectrum enzyme blend” went to work and removed all hints of dirt. Good as new for the first wedding of 2018 this weekend! This detergent is also eco-friendly, animal cruelty free, and safe for babies and sensitive skins. [Get 10% off here]
Painted Garden Rocks.
How cute is this painted rock for the garden? My friend Katie is a talented artist and my sister has a garden…so I commissioned these rocks from my friend to give Kerri as a birthday gift! I thought I was ordering river rocks (about the size of my palm). No. The description says 20 lbs of 3-5 inch rocks but Katie told me two boxes of at least 40 lbs of rocks were sent to her house and the rocks were closer to 5-8 inches. Anyway. Katie worked with what she had and my husband carried 30 pounds of rocks through two airports so they are the true heroes. I love the whole set!
This is for all my scholars out there. EndNote is a lifesaver when it comes to organizing citations and papers. Don’t hesitate to spend ~$70 for the full version — it will absolutely change your life. Pro tip: Install the “Import into Endnote” library shortcut for maximum effectiveness. I have many more tips I would love to share but I won’t bore the non-scholars with the details — please reach out if you want to know more!

Girls on the Run 5k.
Girls on the run is an after school program designed to help 3rd-5th grade girls feel confident in who they are, create positive connections with their peers and adults, develop positive self-talk, and encourage compassion for others in their community. In addition, the girls set running goals each day and work towards the season-culminating 5k. It’s an encouraging and inspiring event, especially for those girls who have never or could never imagine themselves finishing a 5k! [GOTR Puget Sound]
