Gone Like the Wind

Hello…remember me?

The girl who used to be good about blogging regularly?Β And then life happened!

It feels like I haven’t submitted a post for a gazillion years when in actuality it’s only been a week or two. But STILL that is way too long in my book. As I’m sure you could guess, things maybe-kinda-sorta-probably-most definitely have been a tad busy around here lately. Throw together a work schedule, extra-curricular activities, upcoming finals week, keeping up my fitness, attempting to squeeze in a bit of social time and you’re almost guaranteed a headache. I usually feel like I need A) a nap. or B) coffee.

Speaking of coffee….

My black friday victory landed me with the Platinum edition Keurig. Aka, my new baby. I love this thing!!! It will most definitely be the star of my apartment kitchen next semester. Next on the list? Hello, Vitamix!


Hey, a girl can dream can’t she?

Today I have accomplished a small-ish workout because as noted, someone’s tired. Nail painting has also occurred and I’ve come to a very important conclusion: my polishes absolutely *must* be the 60 second fast dry kind because I have the patience level of a two year old.

Aaaand for the rest of this completely random post, I figured it would be a good idea to clean out some of my foodie picture folder. Sound good to you? okay great. πŸ™‚

I have two weeks left before I’m finished with this semester and go home for the holidays. I foresee some good blogging time in the near future! And maybe some not-so-random posts at that? Haha, koudos to whoever made it through this one, you guys deserve a pat on the back. πŸ˜€

I miss you all and am wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Q of the Day:

For all you fellow Keurig lovers, what are your favorite K-cups?
