10 Things

Good morning and happy Friday! Even though it's 10 degrees outside, and feels like -1 with the wind chill, I'm feeling good because it's Friday and we have a 3 day weekend! Truly blessed. Here are 10 random things I've had on my mind recently!

  1. I don't know how to dress for cold weather. When I lived in the South I thought I was SO good at it, especially compared to my friends... but now that I'm experiencing an actual winter PLUS an insane wind chill... the struggle is real. We're talking leggings under my jeans, four jackets, beanies and gloves struggle.
  2. "Girl on Fire" is the most inspiring song. I was struggling the other day at the gym and started to make excuses (boo, hello 2018 goal!) but then the song came on my shuffle and my mood totally shifted. I finished my workout and I am still sore.
  3. Speaking of, my boss got our entire office bluetooth headphones and I am obsessed. I was considering asking for a pair for Christmas, but wasn't 100% set on the idea. Now that I have them, it has totally changed my gym routine.
  4. I started watching Black Mirror season one on the treadmill. I can't really decide how I feel about the series. It's good, but weird, but I can't turn away. Anyone else watching it? I just finished the second episode of season one.
  5. It's sort of ironic that on Monday I published a post about keeping a positive attitude throughout a tough mood because yesterday I had such a rough day. I was in a terrible mood all day long and didn't want to talk to anyone. Guess it just goes to show that everyone has their on days and off days.
  6. I really want to see Lady Bird. I've heard so many great things and the trailer looks amazing. Watching them win at the Golden Globes totally sealed the deal for me! Has anyone seen it?
  7. I tried the sofritas yesterday at Chipotle and they were surprisingly good! I've been on a healthy eating streak but had a meeting that ran long. (And I didn't want quinoa for the 3rd night in a row.) I got a bowl with sofritas, veggies, pico, corn salsa, and lettuce and it was so good, filling, and only 280 calories for the whole thing!!!!!
  8. My parents and I are currently making plans to go skiing in a few weeks! We're going to stay in Park City, Utah. Anyone have any restaurant recommendations?
  9. I signed up to run a 5k in April! I know it sounds a little silly to say that, but up until a year ago I couldn't run a mile without stopping. I honestly don't even know if I can still do that! This has been a goal of mine for a while so I'm excited to complete it.
  10. I'm going to take some pictures with my new camera + tripod this weekend! Nervous but excited. Hopefully people don't think I'm too weird. ;)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


  1. Black Mirror is one I can't turn away from either! There are some pretty crazy eps in there. And bluetooth headphones are the best! I just started using the pair I got for Christmas and love them!

  2. Ahh it's freezing here today! Good luck with your 5k.

  3. i've heard so much good things about black mirror :) i should really watch it soon :)

  4. Black Mirror is such a crazy show! It gets more and more weird haha.

  5. I have been thinking about watching Black Mirror but everyone has raved about it so much! I am personally not into Sci-Fi shows but it seems cool :)

  6. So many fun things! Park City is GORGEOUS so I hope you have a fun trip!

  7. I should join a 5k run too, it would motivate me to do more! xx

  8. Vacay in Park City sounds SO fun and I bet it will be gorgeous there-- enjoy!!

  9. Girl, I am right there with you when it comes to running! Cardio is NOT my strong suit, but you are going to do so great at the 5k! Props to you for signing up! You got this :)

  10. Ugh I feel you on dressing for the cold weather, so hard!!

  11. Good luck with your 5k! I remember my first and it was a lot of fun - I'm doing a 5k this year and signing up for a 10k as well(!)

  12. This weather is crazy cold! I've lived in the Northeast my whole life and am struggling! Like you said layering is key!
