Hi beautiful people!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds

Daylight savings is really screwing with me, guys. I’ve been more tired than ever, which doesn’t make sense since I’ve been going to sleep earlier? Did the one hour change mess up anyone else’s body clock? Oof.

In any case, we have made it to Friday which is by far the most important thing to note. I’m looking forward to a weekend filled with people that make me happy and lots of rest. I’ve been dying to whip up some more fall recipes too (after last weekend’s baking extravaganza + my first batch of chili for the season!). Will hopefully have more yummy things for ya’ll very soon 🙂

In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been browsing this week:

Brown Butter Squash – Simple, easy, cozy. Sign me upppppppp.

Pomegranate Avocado Salad with Walnuts – Is it just me, or are seasonal fall foods the prettiest?!

10 Books to Read if You Want to Make 2018 Your Year – Umm YES?! Yes. Have y’all read any of these yet? Thoughts?

15 Vegan Hot Chocolate Recipes – Have I told you about my obsession with hot cocoa, yet? I literally have a cup every single night for dessert when it’s cold outside! I’m trying to cut back on dairy a bit, so I’m allll for these.

How to Travel on a Budget – Homegirl is alllllll about seeing the world without emptying that bank account! These tips are superb for any #BabeOnABudget

I guess when you spend all day working and all night unpacking (+ watching Stranger Things, let’s be real), the days will do that…haha. But the sea of boxes is mostly gone, guys!! I cannot wait to show you photos.

I’ll be spending this weekend blogging + working + organizing my life, plus some fun things for sure, but I’ll catch up with you guys again Monday. In the meantime, here’s some light reading (as per usj) and some yummy recipes from around the web!

Soft Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies (Vegan + Gluten-Free) – I’ve barely done anything with pumpkin so far this season, so please don’t hate me if I continue my pumpkin frenzy until 2018…

These days I’m finding it hard to focus on anything other than my move in about a week (eeeeee!!!!!!!) and all of the furniture/decor I need/want to buy…my wallet won’t be happy, but my heart will. I feel like if you’re going to splurge on something (other than travel), it should be your home. You need an oasis to come back to after long days, a place comfortable place just for you, and that’s worth spending some money on in my opinion…

Anyway, I digress! Here’s what I’ve been reading this week:

Why Your Salad Needs Fat – Because the low-fat thing is sooooooo over.

5 Smart Tips for Managing Your Grocery Budget – Plus one more: don’t go grocery shopping on an empty stomach…

10 Healthy Snack Power-Food Combos – I’ll take all the easy + healthy snack ideas I can get!

Pumpkin Coconut Hot Chocolate – Are you even kidding me right now.

Why You Should Switch to Natural Deoderant – YES. Yes yes yes. Schmidt’s is my favorite!

6 Ways to Make the Most of Your Weekend – I’m alllllll about prepping for life on Sundays and taking it easy. Makes heading in the week 10x easier!

Alright y’all, I’m off to work. Tomorrow we have a wedding and then Sunday I’m taking for myself. What are you guys up to?! Something autumn-y I hope 🙂

Hi friends!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds.

This week absolutely flew by, didn’t it? I think that may have been because I spent half of every day reading and watching the news hoping they would find some answers about what happened in Vegas last weekend. I actually just want to say something quick here, aside from how absolutely horrifying the attack was – just one week before, I had actually been at a music festival on the same fairgrounds as the shooting, and stayed right at the Mandalay Bay, too. I’ve been extra upset about it, just because of this and how my memories on that field are so different from all of the people involved last weekend and to be honest, I feel a bit guilty about it. Like maybe I shouldn’t have had such a great time there, because only one week later it would be the sight of something so awful.

But there’s really no point in feeling that way, because what we really need to do, aside from sending love and light to all of the victims and their families, is to understand what needs to happen to prevent this in the future. We have had far too many incidences like this to continue on the path this country has been. And on a more granular level, can we all just be a bit kinder to one another? I think that may do some good, as well.

Okay, on a lighter note – here’s what I’ve been reading (other than CNN), and I hope you have a weekend filled with people you love. Hug them a little tighter, okay?

How to Help the Victims of the Vegas Shooting – Call your reps.

Whatever You Fancy Fruit Crumble – Swear I’m making these this weekend with mixed fruit omg.

8 Snacks to Stop Buying and Start Making – Healthier, cheaper, and probably more fun.

Nourishing Fall Power Salad – Now THIS is a salad I could get on board with daily.

The One Baking Ingredient You Should Never Splurge On – Since holiday baking is coming up and I need to save my ca$h for gifts, y’know?

Hi Beautiful People!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds.

I’m so sorry I haven’t posted a recipe in awhile, I have been traveling on the weekends and short on time, so the meals I’m prepping for the week have been pretty bland! Think basic quinoa with a bunch of raw veggies topped with 2 huge spoonfuls of hummus (yep, that’s been my lunch every. single. day). I promise I’ll be back next week with a new recipe (the carrot cookies most likely, since everyone has been requesting those!), but in the meantime I’m back with my usual Friday Finds from Chicago! I’m here for my very first music festival and am slightly nervous but also very, very excited. Let me know if you’ll be there, too!

What Our Nutritionist Eats in a Week – Totally stealing some of these ideas like the chocolate almond butter overnight oats and jicama sticks for a snack!

Italian Sausage and Veggie Bowls – I usually meal-prep my standard quinoa and veggies, but it gets old! Definitely hoping to try these next week.

Vegan Blueberry Shake – I’m clearly not vegan but hot damn this sounds good!!!

10 Grocery Store Shortcuts that are Cheaper than Doing it Yourself – An incredibly important list to have on hand! Thank goodness for Trader Joe’s, #amiright?

Extreme Money-Saving Tips of Extremely Frugal People (that You Can Use!) – Guys I totally wash my ziploc bags so I can re-use them…it’s great.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies with Sea Salt – Pretty sure I share a recipe from this blog every single week because she is a cooking and baking GENIUS.

Enjoy your weekend 🙂
