...singing along to this song, this song, this song, this song, this song, every single one of these songs, and every song by this girl, this girl and this girl. #WhipMyHairBackAndForth
...celebrating the fact that my baby sister has turned 18. ohmygoodness! Time flew so fast! I still remember the very first time I saw her pretty face and all of the many amazing memories! Kara is my baby sister and I love her so much! Hope you had an amazingtastic 18th birthday and sorry I wasn't there to celebrate with you! Love you lots!
Get Up & Go Green Juice
2 cups spinach
1-one inch piece fresh ginger
2 celery stalks
1. Working in this order, put spinach, grapefruit, apples, ginger and celery through the juicer.
2. Fill 2 glasses with ice, if desired, and pour the juice into the glasses.
I prefer to make the juice, fill my mason jar and sip on it. mmm.
...eating pomelo, pineapple and mango topped with artisana coconut butter, hemp seeds and bee pollen. I also made a batch of tasty peanut butter berry bars from the lovely Becky at Olives & Wine and these healthy peanut butter rice krispie treats #BetterThanRiceKripieTreats from Lee at Fit Foodie Finds. #PeanutButterMakesAComeback
FOODIE FACT : Pomelo is where the grapefruit is hybridized from with the help of the orange. It is also one of the high packed Vitamin C fruits which hold with it so many benefits according to Dr. Linus Pauling
Here are some basic facts:
Vitamin C is a cofactor of enzymes involved in the formation of collagen, a protein which strengthens and makes skin elastic encouraging faster wound healing. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron in the body.
Pomelo is also packed with fiber, a must-have nutrient to help maintain regular bowel movements, prevent hemorrhoids and even colon cancer.
This amazing fruit helps those still not on plant based diets lose weight due to its high natural fiber content.
This is one of my favorite fruits and is a great way to trick the body in feeling full. For those who are trying to slowly transition into more raw plant based diets I would definitely recommend having this fruit part of your diet.
...and salad. always lots. of salad.
You are a goddamn tree stump with leaves sprouting out
...trying to comment more often on blogs that I really enjoy. It's so easy to read blogs in a reader and then flip to the next one. As a blogger, I love getting comments so I'm really trying to share the love. Just know that even if I don't comment every. single.time. I'm still reading you.
...feeling a little bit stressed...worrying about things that are, of course, out of my control. I am really good at stressing over something that I can do absolutely nothing about. I have learned that God likes to give us strength in our areas of weakness. He always provides and new doors have always been opened to me. I know that this is true but I really have to open my heart and choose to believe it over and over again because the enemy is constantly whispering doubts. I am continually learning how to handle these moments of weakness.
...wishing that I had tickets to go to this event this weekend. I'm definitely not a biker chick (not that there is anything wrong with that). Yet, I fell in love with motorcycles and boys who ride them when I was in my early twenties (I think I'm more addicted to the speed than the bikes, but that's another story).
Did you see who the special guests are? Chibs and Tig from Sons of Anarchy. SOLD OUT. Boo!
...needing some more z's. I've been getting into the habit of staying up later than usual and snoozing through my first and second alarms, which leads to cranky rushed mornings. Me and "My Little Taste Tester" no likey.

...thinking about this really cool new site that launched this week.called Chideo, which stands for Charity plus Video. Here’s how it works: Celebrities and other famous personalities create videos for fans based on ideas generated from fans. Then the fans get to vote on the ideas and share them via social media outlets. The ideas that get the most votes may be brought to life by the celebrities.
What a fun and unique new way to give back! So far the site has over 60 celebrities and over 50 amazing charities involved, and they just launched this week. You can check it out and start participating here.
