Green smoothie

Happy weekend!

I didn’t manage to sleep in at all this morning unfortunately, but I still managed to rock out a 6 mile run. Which I am really excited to say I followed up with a green smoothie using my new blender!!! I have been wanting one for ages and decided that I would look around on amazon and see if there were any good ones in my price range and I landed on this Oster blender and so far I love it. And a smoothie was exactly what I was craving post-run, so I was feeling doubly-satisfied with my new toy. 🙂


My plans this afternoon include some reading, a trip to the grocery store with my friend who drives (woohoo!!) so I can stick up on baking supplies and all my favorite Trader Joe’s goodies, and working on a group project for my opera history class this evening.

As if I wasn’t enjoying this day enough, the weather is a balmy 49 degrees out which means I am definitely going to rock my sweatshirt for shopping instead of busting out the heavy duty winter parka!

What’s your favorite grocery store? I love Whole Foods, but Trader Joe’s is definitely more up my alley price-wise and I find so many fun and delicious things to try there, I don’t mind at all. 🙂

Hi! It’s me!

Today I’m happy about: feeling like myself again! Dealing with depression and anxiety takes it’s toll not only on you but on the people surrounding you who love and care about you. Although I know change doesn’t happen overnight, I am so grateful to finally be on a path to improvement. The air feels fresher when I walk outside, the work I have to do feels less difficult, and I am re-discovering my passion for music and learning in a way I had not felt for a while. Not to sound like a cheesy infomercial on late-night TV, but I really feel like I’m living again after having been in a dark cloud for a long time.

I hope you are all having a beautiful and enjoyable Friday!

Kebab life

Today I’m happy about: being only one day away from another day off! It’s been a busy work weekend, but I have managed to be productive regardless. I am in a continued search for a doctor and although I thought I had found one, it turns out he’s not the right fit for me. I am keeping the positive thoughts going though because I know I will find someone who will be exactly what I need. Tonight I’m enjoying family time at a great middle eastern restaurant and I can’t wait to go to town on some kebabs!

Even though I’m working all weekend, what are you doing for fun this sunny weekend?
