Just Livin' Life

Just a bunch of random stuff going on...I'm getting back into the swing of things after my holiday vacations, so my normal schedule isn't quite back on track. I'm SUPER STOKED that my friend Simon from Great Britain is coming to visit next week! Ok, on to the photos...

Visual reminder on my work laptop to SIT UP STRAIGHT (I slouch way too much)

This is what helps make my morning workouts worth it - beautiful sunrise in Davis Square

I posted my sunrise picture on Instagram with the hashtag #GodIsGreat...seems like everyone else had the same idea :)

New favorite wine - Apothic Red. It's very fruity and not dry...perfect for sipping after a long day at work

You never know what you'll see on your morning commute...

Cupcake break with V

Don't get her angry...she'll mangle a cupcake

On Friday I had a wonderful girls' night - first up, dinner with Sarah. YUM pho

Vietnamese Crepe (so delicious!)

Sarah and I stopped in at Lush before drinks and they were having a sale on 4-in-1 make-up (lip, blush, eye shadow, and eyeliner)! It was a fun process - they had you sit down and think of the positive feelings you had that day and close your eyes while they spun the wheel..then you opened your eyes and picked the 3 colors that 'spoke' to us (not necessarily our favorite colors). Each color was named something and correlated with what you were feeling. Pretty cool! I ended up getting "Believe" (beautiful bright pink)

First stop - Stephanie's on Newbury for drinks with Loren, Sarah, and Kristina

Then on to Lolita's for Sangria and Mexican food! The white Sangria was AMAZING - so fruity and delicious

They also have Green Apple Cotton Candy with Pop Rocks

(great for the table, fun to nosh on)

Me with Sarah enjoying the cotton candy :) 

They also had fake tattoos with the Lolita's do I look with an arm tattoo? 

Very excited about my latest health find - Matcha tea! 

They take the whole tea leave and grind it up so you get the FULL benefit of the tea (unlike tea bags that steep, you put in a spoonful of the powder and mix it into hot water). It's a great source of antioxidants and apparently it helps boost your metabolism

On Sunday, I went to Atomic Cafe with Ambra and Brita for some coffee and muffins

....and then volunteered at kids church. Gosh I love squishy people :) 

It SNOWED!!!!!!!!!!!

It's so pretty when it's fresh

Can't get enough

Absolutely beautiful!

I love it when the snow sticks to my hair :)

And there ya have it folks! Manny has been saying some awesome stuff, so be sure to check back on Monday :)

  1. I love you the pictures! Tell the truth you did that to the cupcake!!! HAHA

  2. Ha--I have to agree with Vanessa's comment--you probably did that to the cupcake!

    I wish we had your snow here instead of flooding. And I'll try that tea when I come to visit.
