lately, I have been loving avocados. It is weird how when you eat one food too much, then forget about it for a while.. then randomly rediscover it. I hadn't had a firm, ripe avocado in a long time!
We had avocado fries this weekend. Those were really amazing. and then I bought some at the store just to eat with enchiladas and by itself for a snack.
Ever have an OBSESSION for a food and then get tired of it...only to rediscover it again later?
we had sangria this weekend and it was de-lish too.
I notice as of lately, my standards are pretty high..
I dream big, and try to make it happen. What I need to realize is that I can do it all, just not all at once.
I think high hopes are great... But we also have to be somewhat realistic.
My theme, in everything in life right now, is enjoying the process, and slowing it down. I don't want to live so fast, or even out of my means. Each one of our decades has some purpose/learning stage/ or meaning in some way.
Right now I am in my 20's and I should do what a mature 20-something would. :)
For some reason though, I had been daydreaming about a lot of things happening before I should do it. I want a new car. I look at my money, and I shouldnt really go and do that right now. Having a bigger car payment, means having to cramp my living style a little bit, and I dont want to do that. So im going to change my car up, to update it and make it feel like I have a new car. Tint, inside acessories, new steering wheel, that sort of thing. Small changes, but probably could make a big difference.
So, I'm taking small steps for save for that.
Eye on the prize, thats the whole idea.
I've seen too many people jump into that lifestyle only to have it quickly crumble because they moved too fast.
MUST NOT GET SUCKED INTO IT! :P
but small changes over periods of time - not just a dream come true all at once- otherwise we would go broke.
I think its good to have long term and short term goals. They have their own jars is all.
and also, don't forget to jump on something when the time is right.
Its funny because I also think you should be the optimist, pessimist and the realist all rolled into one. That's what life is about right? Lets not be black and white.
lol heres an old photo.. had to put up one that was goofy..
Still haven't been able to find any of these cute leggings that are thick sweater-like material.
I bought some at TJ maxx that dont fit right so I have to take those back :(
It is so hard to find good leggings. I only have one pair that I am totally satisfied with. Does anyone know where the best place is to buy these? Ive tried a lot of places.
Here I am now. My hair is layered and needs some discipline. No more shampooing everyday. I had a problem with wanting that ultra clean feeling everyday.. Stripping my scalp of its oils and making it painfully dry.. I mean I was literally uncomfortable. My scalp even hurt. So now I am trying to do it THREE times a week without washing. I don't know if any of you find this difficult to do this (or in this case, NOT do)
I have totally been abusing it. (I do use a heat protectant BUT)
I was blow drying everyday.
Shampooing and conditioning everyday.
But I felt like it didn't look good if it wasn't processed. But then I remember in highschool how I never was so bad to my hair and I went without styling it quite a bit, and it looked nice naturally.
Above photo- that is my hair right now. Just, out of my way lol. Sorta dorky, but I like it.
I am so sick of worrying about my hair. I have decided to almost "let it go" as in ....cut it.. but, I have decided to first try doing messier, out of my way types of styles first. Right now I have it tied back and it feels like I'm in my "writing mode". It just feels more productive when its not all on your face. It will get cut once or twice a month to help with split ends.
Its funny how the littlest changes make the biggest difference.
This weekend it was sooooo cold that it made me want to buy out a sweater store. I couldn't have been more layered up.
I love fall and winter clothes but I love the simplicity of just laying in the sun...
I am loving this little map bathing suit, it is too cute. I cant wait til summer is here!
Until then, it is outfits like the one below.
Isn't that a cute outfit? Sooo my style!
Until it gets warm though :/ Sweaters, Layers, and lots of it.
For now I will reside in outfits like the one below.. that is for sure my style. love it.
The three pictures below are how I feel: cozy
P.S. This whole post was inspired by a conversation with Chris today. He really helps me to live my life to where I can enjoy it. He is wise beyond his years.
