A Little Somethin’ Sunday #82

Happy Sunday!

And Memorial Day weekend Sunday at that! Thank you all who have fought for this country, and sacrificed so much for our freedom. I am forever grateful.

I spent the weekend with my bro-ha at the Boston Calling music festival, which I’ll just say Mumford & Sons headlined. ‘Nuff said. Ah-Maz-Ing.

But let’s read all about it for the 8-2 edition of ALSS!

A little something Sunday

Daily Quote:

Happiness C.S Lewis Quote

from Pinterest 

This quote really made me think. What makes me happy? Is that something I can lose? And then I thought….we make our own happiness. No matter what you choose to measure happiness in, it is up to you.

Music of the Moment:

“Best to You” – Blood Orange

I’ve been obsessed with this song ever since I heard it in..T.J Maxx? Marshalls? Some other irrelevant store? After I found out it wasn’t Selena Gomez ( thanks google) it was a little easier to find with my limited known lyric google search. Nonstop listening now.

 

Life Lately:

Peacock Bird

Bringing the boyf back to my roots…the wild jungles of N.H. Just the typical things you find at a farmstand. Chickens. Ducks. Peacocks. NBD.

 

Sneakers Running

Hello running, my old friend. I am slowly (keyword, SLOWLY) getting back into running, with a plan to run 3 days a week, and do yoga and maybe some strength training in between.

I made it to one day this week, and at 6:30 AM at that! I’ll have you know I am not a morning exerciser, and while I felt like I was going to literally pass out at the end, I was glad I did it.

Wine Thursday

and after said run, there’s only one thing to do. WINE TIME. Can you really blame a girl when it’s

Thursday.

Literally monsooning out.

Wine is $3 a glass.

It pretty much writes Happy Hour itself.

This tater salad is so full of color, how could you NOT want to eat it?! Never thought to add radishes to it either!

Sign me up for any and all sundaes (with an ae, that is). Served on a grilled pineapple slice is just the cherry on top. (Sorry, I had to. It was right there!)

Crispy Quinoa GranolaTreble in the Kitchen

I LOVE the idea of making granola with quinoa! I’m always looking for ways to love quinoa (it’s a rough relationship) but I think I can go all in with granola.

Someone finally answered my prayers for making a childhood favorite into an adult and alcohol-loaded version. Is that weird? I’m a little weird. But these boozy pops are the bomb.

One thing I hate is food waste. It’s everywhere. So it’s hard for me to throw out food or let it rot in my fridge when I forget about it. This is something I need to work on.

I love Lindsay’s perspective. No matter where your life is metaphorically or geographically, EMBRACE IT. Enjoy the spark in every day, or even the bumps. Cuz it’s your damn life. And no one can take that from you.

Love the thought of every one of these. Although I have been diffusing lavender oil instead of lighting candle, which relaxes me, and my mind from freaking out if I fall asleep with it still burning.

The more ladies that come out to support each other and speak out against their struggles with body image the better. We can all benefit from growing together, and understanding we’re not alone in these thoughts.

  1. Love this song! Instead of googling lyrics, I have the shazam app. You push a button and it tells you the song and artist. Plus it saves it in a list, so when I want to download new music, I go through my shazam list to see what I’ve liked recently.

  3. Thanks for pointing out ProBlogger’s post about social media, Emily!. Really, nowadays no matter the industry, if a company is not on social media for higher outreach…it seems hard to make it! Or, just impossible!
