Holy bananas. You guys are amazing. Thank you all so much for your supportive words, your amazing input, and your general fabulosity. I read every single comment (twice) on yesterday’s body image post, and each one made me smile. I love how supportive we can all be of one another and I love all of you amazing people. You make me feel warm and fuzzy.
Aaaaaaand it’s Friday, so let’s get a virtual hip bump going for that, eh?
You hip bumped me too hard. Now I’m gonna have a bruise.
I have a confession, you guys. I’ve been horrible at taking photos lately. I eat most of my meals at work, and I feel super awkward taking food pics. Also, I’ve just been hungry so by the time I pull my camera out to snap a photo, I look down and all that’s left on my plate are crumbs. Oh…
But thankfully, there’s this new invention called the World Wide Web that has so many pictures on it. Oh so many pictures. Pictures of cats and boobs and cartoon hearts and real hearts and waffles and pretty clothes. And you guys! It doesn’t just have pictures! No, it also has tons of other cool stuff. Like words. Lots of words. Some are boring words, but a lot of them are real neat. And so, lucky for you, I’m sharing some pretty cool combinations of words and pictures today. Get ready, my sexies. Yes, I just called you “sexies.” Deal with it.
For your brain
If you aren’t watching Orange is the New Black, I feel sad for you. Go watch it. It’s hilarious and beautiful. I promise you won’t regret it. Also, approximately 23% of BuzzFeed’s articles center around the show, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on those, would you? Peer pressure.
This refreshingly honest post is what inspired me to publish yesterday’s post. Plus, Heather is amazing and gorgeous, so you should definitely go read every post on her blog. Have fun.
Because TINA FEY. Do you need any more reason than that?! I want Tina to be my BFF. Teen (that’s what I imagine I’ll call Tina when we’re buddies) is just smart and fabulous. Plus, I bet she’d introduce me to Amy Poehler. BFF triangle, here I come!
WARNING: Do not watch at work. Or in public. You’re going to cry (at least on the inside) and then whip out your wallet.
For your belly
1.Chopped Cashew Chicken Salad from How Sweet It Is
You guyyyss. Cashews! And mango! Chili-dusted mango! And veggies! And soy sauce! OMG.
2. Brown Butter Coconut Muffins with Lime Curd from Wit & Vinegar
First of all, Billy is amazing. He’s hilarious and genius and takes amazing pictures that make me feel jealous and lame. But in a good way, you know? Also, he has a dog named Mose. As in, Dwight Schrute’s cousin. Be my friiiiienddddddd (Billy, not Mose). Oh, and don’t even get me started on this recipe. Like, are you for serious? I’m would lick that lime curd off of a homeless man’s sweaty ba… uh… feet. His sweaty feet. (Although, for the record, I’d much rather lick it off of a brown butter coconut muffin.)
3. Mediterranean Stuffed Squash from Bev Cooks
Ground turkey and chickpeas and raisins and almonds and feta, OH MY! Bonus, Bev is pregnant with twinnies, and she’s basically the cutest thing since sliced bread. (<< If that was even a phrase.)
4. Summer Veggie Lasagne from Making Thyme for Health
Corn in lasagne? I’m in. I am so, so in. Especially when cheese is involved.
5. Biscoff Cinnamon Chip Ice Cream from Fabtastic Eats
If I get the PayPal account started, will you all donate money so I can buy an ice cream maker? And then a new apartment that will actually fit an ice cream maker? I promise I’ll pay you all back in ice cream.
