Short and Sweet

Hey everyone! I hope that all is well! I'm also hoping that you are all knee deep in a long weekend. I'm a few hours away from my first three day weekend in a long time and I couldn't be more excited about it! This week has been a bit tough, I'm feeling really burned out and tired and in desperate need of a break. I'm also feeling that urge to clean so I'm hoping to get a good chunk of my de-cluttering done this weekend. I also thought of a really great way to give myself the alone time that I crave so desperately and I'm hoping to start that next weekend :) If I get to go I'll make sure to take some pictures so I can share the experience with you! Fingers crossed the weather holds up for me.

Like I said, I've been feeling drained and burned out this week. Needless to say the meals suffered again. I haven't even been photographing much because they all just tend to be the same but I grabbed a few pictures for you.


I have been loving my peaches lately! A fast, easy breakfast for me is two peaches. They are so sweet and juicy right now! I need to get my hands on some berries too.


I haven't had a pizza bagel in so long and decided it was time to fix that! This is just a simple one with sauce and daiya mozzarella. It was so incredibly filling. Next time I'll probably just make half and have a salad with it. 


I wanted to finish up the rest of the spinach, refried beans and my last quesadilla so I made one more of my favorite quesadillas. Seriously so delicious. This is my favorite combo.

Those are all of the meals I have to share today. I'm planning on getting a few things from Trader Joe's tomorrow so I should have a small haul to share with you along with some meals. I'll probably post a little later on Tuesday to share my 4th of July meal with you.


Just as a random side note, I FINALLY saw Moana (it's on Netflix!!) and you guys… it was so good!! I don't know what I was expecting but I really really loved it. I like how Disney has been going in a direction where the Princesses are more independent and the focus is on their strength and not necessarily on the need to find a Prince. The movie was really great and I felt extra joy because of the connection that she had with the ocean. I've always been in love with the ocean and I just love that the ocean plays such a large role that it was almost like a character for me. It was really beautiful and I'll probably watch it again at some point this weekend. I highly highly recommend it.

Do you have any fun plans for the long weekend? Let me know! The only things I know for sure right now is that I want to get my weekly bubble tea tomorrow, I have to run to Lush to pick up facial cleanser at some point and I will be doing the bulk of my major cleaning. Otherwise I plan on doing some major relaxing and probably some binge watching.

For all of my fellow Americans I hope you have an Happy and safe 4th of July! To my international friends out there have an amazing weekend!

  1. Thanks for the great movie review. I'll definitely watch it. Love how eloquently you write. I'm spending the weekend in bed watching Netflix as I've managed to get bronchitis after a really stressful workweek. I discovered Playing House on USA. It's about two women that have been best friends since childhood. Maybe it's me but some of the dialogue makes me LOL. Hope you have a great 3-day holiday weekend (for once)! Love how you rock that hair! Own it!! ;)

  5. Mmmmmm! Great looking Quesadilla! I just finished 'Gypsy' on Netflix. Love Naomi Watts, but it was snoozefest. Do not recommend.
