Hello, friends! I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever! After that little bug I had and more microbiology homework than usual, I just didn’t have the time to post. It really was weird not doing my usual Friday Favorites last week, so I am back today for a long overdue favs post.
Although I will be spending my weekend studying for a test I have Monday, I am off work today for the Good Friday holiday. Hooray for a 3-day weekend! I have some workouts planned and an outing with friends tomorrow, so my weekend should have a little play in it. I hope yours does too!
Without further ado, here are some things I’ve been loving this week. Feel free to chime in down in the comments!
Happier Podcast by Gretchen Rubin
I started this podcast this week after having it downloaded on my phone for about a year. I know, I know, I am super late to the party on this one. The tips about making each day happier seem so simple once you think about it and I love how easy and effortless it is to try in your daily life. I truly believe overthinking is the root to many issues (or maybe just mine haha!) and this podcast really simplifies why you may actually be stressed and why you may actually be unhappy or unfulfilled.
“You Are Beautiful” Memo
If you follow me on Snapchat, you may have seen this on my story yesterday. Yesterday in a parking garage, I walked over to take the elevator down to the main level, and as I reached to press the ‘down’ button, I saw this right next to the buttons and it absolutely made my day. This positive message in the most random place really made me smile and brightened my morning.
Coconut Chocolate Chip Lara Bar
This may be my favorite Lara bar out of all of them. This one is super delicious and has the perfect ratios of coconut and chocolate. I’m obsessed!
Baby Pictures of Winston
This is such a random favorite, so get ready. This may seem like a joke because, really…when is looking at pictures of Winston NOT one of my favorite things? Never, I tell you.
I was talking with his breeder the other day because she asked me to send her a puppy picture and a current picture to compare how his head has changed over the course of his life. The picture above is from when he was 5 months. Now, you can tell he is wrinklier, bulkier, and rounder. His snout doesn’t seem so long as it does in the photo above and his face, I feel like, has changed so much!
You guys are probably like “OKAY SARA. WE GET IT. YOU LOVE YOUR DOG.” I’ll leave you with just one more.
