I have been trying to think of a way to make a type of weekly recap post, kind of where I mention my favorite thing/moment that week. This is why I will start a weekly highlight series, in order for me to look back at my week and appreciate the small or big things I enjoyed! It’s nice to look back and realize how much you can be happy about or thankful for, so let’s start, shall we?
I recently discovered this fun new way to eat oatmeal, thanks to The Golden Dreamcatcher’s Blog, who has really awesome and tasty looking recipes. She gave a seriously creative recipe for plain old oatmeal, where you get to enjoy it as a cake! I took a picture of it, but I must admit it’s not the best. Check out her blog to see some really nice pictures of this breakfast.
Going back to the gym at school
When august came around, my gym membership ended and I had a month left until I could go back to school and hit the free gym on campus. I must admit that I didn’t really work out much during that month, which is 100% fine, but now I’m back in a routine and it feels great! Yay for free gyms 🙂
I’ve never introduced my dog to my blog before, so let me introduce you to Sasha! Sasha is my family’s first dog and she is 9 months old tomorrow. Her breed is a cockapoo; she is a mix of a cocker spaniel and a poodle and she is seriously the cutest dog ever. She’s so loving and cuddly and seriously acts like a little baby half the time, but we love her all the same. I think the picture below very accurately shows how much she loves to cuddle. She is literally on top of my face.
The Strange & Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
This was a strange and wonderful book I finished this week (I was tempted to say strange and beautiful, what can I say, the title is accurate!); the type of book I’m sure an English teacher could pull apart and expose the hidden imagery and meanings. It is a book about a girl born with wings, and goes through her grandmother’s life, her mothers life and then her own. To say that this book is strange is accurate enough, but it’s intriguing and captivating, I enjoyed it from start to finish.
Everything about these chips are perfect, from the short and natural ingredient list to the fact that they are made by hand! We had a Mexican supper this week, which I will be making a post about soon enough, and these chips with homemade guacamole and salsa was our entrée. These chips are AWESOME and so good!! They just can’t compare to regular tortilla chips. I haven’t found these in regular grocery stores, we had to go a little further to a Latina market to find these, but it was worth it. Excuse the terrible picture, I was just too excited about them and never managed to really get a good picture, oups!
Mini Road trips and Seeing Family
Last but not least, today we had a big family reunion to commemorate the 20th anniversary of my great grandmother’s death. I think it was a nice way to spend a Sunday and getting to see family is always nice. It took about 2 hours to get to where we needed to be, so a little road trip was necessary! My boyfriend, James, slept pretty much the whole time and I listened to an audio book, but I managed to snag this picture of him and I while he was awake. This was my only picture from today, but since I haven’t shown much of my face on my blog, I decided to put it in!
I hope your week went well and that the one coming is even better! What did you enjoy this week?
