This week, after two and a half years of eating mindfully, I finally reached my goal weight. That means that I’m 22 pounds down from where I was at my heaviest in 2014. Exciting, right? I felt like I should have been excited when I stepped on the scale, but then I came to the staggering realization that, even though I focused on getting there for so long, I just didn’t care about that number anymore. Why?
Hi, everyone! Good to see you again! It’s been a while! Did you miss me? I thought so. Don’t worry though; I’m back. I took this weekend off to relax and go camping with Kyle because I FINALLY GRADUATED! I’ve been working my bum off for 5 years, and now I can finally say that I’m a college grad. It feels good, y’all, and also a little bit terrifying. I’ve been a student for the past 17 years of my life, so it’s kinda scary to think that now I have to build a whole new routine from the ground up. But the world is my oyster, and ultimately, I’m excited. Stay tuned for life updates!
Being able to make a good cocktail is one of the most lucrative skills out there, in my opinion. It’s really similar to cooking in a lot of ways—you take what you have, and you throw it together in a way that you think will make people happy. More often than not, if you have a general idea of what you’re doing, you’ll be successful. This recipe was one such success. I can’t wait to make and share more cocktail recipes here!
Happy Friday, everyone! Today I’m sharing with you an incredible vegan recipe that just might convince even the staunchest carnivore to incorporate a few more plants into their day. I dreamed up this southwestern-inspired dish after a family barbecue that ended up with waaaay too much leftover corn. I didn’t get to use that corn (sad face) but in the future, I know what I’ll be doing with it!
You know those moments when you just have to take a step back and breathe so you don’t absolutely lose your MARBLES because you have so many things to worry about? That’s where I’m at right now. Growing up, I was always the type of person who thrived in chaos. My senior year of high school, I was taking 3 AP courses along with 2 other difficult courses (my only “blow-off” was choir—but I didn’t even treat that like a blow-off), playing two lead roles in musicals an hour away from each other, getting ready for college, and totally, 100% killin’ it.
