Let’s Catch Up/WIAW


Hi friendly faces! Long time no chat. 

I had a super relaxing weekend, but screwed myself over slightly because this week has been jam-packed with work. I had a prelab and lab report due today (along with my 4 hour lab) and juuuussttt finished writing my final essay for my comparative literature class. My final for the class is this Thursday, so I’ve been studying a bit when I’ve had the time.

Let’s catch up!

I went home for the weekend…

Lots of relaxing, hiking, playing with Kyle’s chickens, and working on my photography. I’ve decided to try my hand at actual people photography (don’t worry, my first love will always be taking copious amounts of food pictures) and Kyle was nice enough to pose for me while I worked on my lighting and composition. I have to admit, taking pictures of boys is no where near as fun as girls. No feminine poses or tossing long locks of hair in the sunset with this one :shock: . If anyone has any advice on portrait photography/editing, I would love to learn more!

I got an Instagram account

Not a good idea when I had such a busy week ahead of me… I’ve already found some of my online friends there (hello, Julia!) and would love to connect with you guys! Follow me HERE if you’d like to see more tasty photos and my latest attempts at people photography :) .

Oats cooked with cinnamon and vanilla extract and topped with brown sugar.



Kyle and I met up for lunch and split a Panda Express feast. I know Panda isn’t “authentic” Chinese, but myyyy gooodness. I could eat orange chicken all day long.



Since I had a busy day and was working on my essay, Kyle cooked up dinner. He made a quick lemon chicken pasta and cut up some lettuce for a side salad. Yum!


And there we have it! It’s currently 11:20 p.m and I’m hoping to get to bed a little earlier than usual, so g’night!

Hope all is well with you guys!

I actually can't stop eating this right now. So good. So so so good. I was skeptical at first, but I have been turned into a healthy fudge believer. Like, do those words even belong together? It's seems like some sort of food miracle. Hallelujah!  I've actually never worked with coconut oil before. The last time I was Continue Reading

So it turns out that strong black coffee is not meant to be had at 9:30 at night. Granted, I did have a long-ish lab report to do and had an ochem midterm today so I needed some liquid energy, but two cups was probably overdoing it. Just know that at the moment, I’m practically bouncing Continue Reading


Weekend Things


Back to Monday. WHY. I have a midterm for my organic chemistry lab today and a lab report due tomorrow, so this post is going to be on the shorter side. I hope you guys had a great weekend! Pizza Night: Kyle and I picked up a couple of Costco pizzas for a pizza night at my house with Continue Reading
