Thinking Out Loud: Meet-Ups & Malevolent Toasters


Oh hai there, Thursday, you’re finally here! I’m pretty excited for this weekend since Kyle and I have some fun things planned. Let’s get on to some Thursday randomness hosted by the lovely Amanda!

1. Shockingly, I’ve never met up with someone I’ve come to know from blogging before!

When Kailey contacted me on Twitter to meet up at the local farmer’s market (We live reeeeallly close to one another), I jumped at the opportunity! Oddly, I was a little nervous about meeting someone in person, but those nerves were soon put to rest because she is just the c-u-t-e-s-t piece of sunshine ever! We grabbed some Starbucks, strolled the stalls (she got free carrots AND a free Japanese sweet potato from the vendors… score), and just chatted for an hour and half or so. It was wonderful!

So I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this on the blog before, but I love Taylor Swift. I understand why people don’t like her and I’m not saying her music is super deep or of the best quality, but I DON’T CARE OK. She’s my homegirl and I listen to her songs on repeat. This is her first new album in 2 years, so I was more than ready to hear a bit of her new style and pre-ordered it well in advance :shock: . I have to say, though, that I kinda miss her old country-ish music. 


3. Do you guys still want monthly income reports?

I haven’t posted on in the last few months because 1. I’ve been super busy and 2. I don’t know if you guys are getting much out of them since I feel like I’m repeating things like a broken record.

4. I’ve been feeling kind of antsy about my hair lately and have been thinking about going slightly lighter with some pretty caramel highlights put in. I wouldn’t be going bleach blonde or anything, but sometimes a girl needs change. Thoughts?

 5. The toaster scares the hell out of me.

I get startled extremely easily and I honestly can’t stand next to the toaster if I know it’s going to pop the toast up soon. Like, toast comes viciously SPRINGING OUT of this malevolent machine and gives me a heart attack. ARE YOU KIDDING ME TOASTER. STOP IT. Just me? :shock: :shock: :shock: . It’s probably just me, huh. 


6. Is it Fall yet?

While the rest of the country gets the joys of crunchy leaves, boots, and sweaters, I’m still in sundresses and sandals. It’s hard to enjoy your pumpkin spice latte (#whitegirl) when you sweat while you’re drinking it… 

Anwhoooo, it’s time for bed! Hope ya’ll are having a great week so far!



WIAW: Busy Busy


Hi friends! Today's WIAW is going to be short and sweet since it's been a long day and my bed is looking pretty tempting at the moment. Breakfast: Made in a hurry since I was trying to catch up on as many blogs as possible before my 8 am. Life has been pretty busy lately and I Continue Reading


Thinking Out Loud


Wowweee, this week has been busy. I meant to do a weekend recap in photos, but couldn’t find the time to put it together. My molecular genetics midterm was this Monday, so I amped up my studying for the few days before the exam with hours and hours of flashcards, textbook reading, practice questions, and Continue Reading


Sponsored Post: Living a Healthy (and Hectic!) Lifestyle

Disclosure:  This post is written in collaboration with Tesco and I received compensation for it.  Let’s face it — working out can be tough. You can’t beat the adrenaline rush post-exercise but often just getting yourself to the gym takes a bit of a pep talk. In order to boost your workout, either before, during and after you Continue Reading


Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie Oatmeal

Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie Oatmeal! This is my favorite breakfast! Honestly tastes like a cookie for less than 250 calories per HUGE slice!

There aren’t many breakfasts that can make me swoon. Not many healthy ones in any case. Oatmeal? Good, but where is the cake. Eggs? Decent, but plz bring me some pie. Greek yogurt? Meh. The only thing going through my head... is my pie here yet? But this. This is something special. This is the sort Continue Reading
