Weekend In Our Life

There’s only 4 weekends left until it’s the week of my graduation and I’m definitely feeling all of the emotions. Happy, sad, confused, terrified, etc. I think it’s easy for us almost-grads to feel this way, and I think the cure is: doing things that make you happy and not freaking out too much about the future. Sounds simple, yeah?

I’m really trying to put this into practice on the weekends.¬†Saturday and Sunday I’m trying to let go – of rigidity, of doubt for the future, etc. Just enjoy the weekend ya know? read more

2018 Reading List So Far

Happy Wednesday!

How is everyone’s week going so far?

I feel like I squeeze every last drop out of my week. My calendar is packed, but a lot of the things that I’m checking off the list are making me feel super productive. Normally I would groan about Tuesday’s group project presentation, but that is one step closer to NO MORE GROUP PROJECT PRESENTATIONS. Woo-hoo! And Wednesday I have a coffee date with a friend, which I mentioned is a huge priority in this post. (Girl-time/friend time is my favorite thing and it’s great for mental health.) read more

13 Things: March

It’s almost APRIL?! W.o.w.

Time flies! I’ve got a little over a month until graduation, hopefully one more out-of-town trip, and lots of fun time enjoying Spring with Cam and my family. Ready for all the coffee, belly laughs, and happy sunshine-y things! But first, here’s what March looked like.

Cam sometimes plays in pick-up mens league lacrosse games on the weekends, and I have a picnic in the car, haha.

ONE // Spring is here and it’s one of my favorite seasons, minus the pollen. Cam and I decided that for Houston, we like fall better because no pollen. Haha! Any tips to enjoy the outdoors without the allergy attacks? It’s gorgeous out, and patio weather is a must. We’ve been loving the Heights Mercantile area because we can walk over there, and the new Local Foods just opened up. I’m obsessed with their big salads! Also stopped in to Gypsy Wagon, and I need/want everything in there. Just need some to contain the sinus headaches and itchy eyes! read more

Simple, Healthy Meals Lately

simple healthy meals

I’ve been cooking up a storm lately, and I love it!¬†

Cooking is a really big form of self-care for me. It’s fun, relaxing, and then I get to reap the benefits when it’s all said and done: yummy, nourishing meals for me and the ones I love.

Lately, I’ve been hitting up the farmers market as well as my local grocers on the weekends with Cam and just getting produce that’s in season and pairing it with whatever else sounds good, is readily available, and may be on sale. We also took a lot of inspiration from our trip to Boston and have tried to recreate some dishes we had there. read more
