FYI, I got my wisdom teeth out less than two hours ago. I feel totally normal, but IDK if that is accurate so please forgive any weird writing! This is my first time doing a linkup, so I want to thank Clare and Heather for hosting and supporting everyone’s blogs<3
I babysat all day Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and this family had so many yummy food choices! I tried their olive tapenade with some carrots and it was so delicious! I’ve been trying to get more fats into my diet, so this was a great snack option.
This cereal (Love Grown Foods’ Strawberry Power O’s) was also eaten while babysitting. I hadn’t had any cereals like this before and enjoyed it a lot!
Yet another babysitting food! (Hey, a girl’s gotta eat!) These were SO good! I have only had dumplings on a couple of occasions (my mom doesn’t cook them or buy them), but I LOVE them! This was the Green Chopsticks’ brand, which I would highly recommend.
Kashi 7 Grain Puffs:
I have been on a cereal kick recently. Kashi has some great cereal options. This one is great because it’s adds a little crunch but still soaks up some of the milk.
We don’t buy cream cheese too much, so I really enjoyed having some while babysitting! Toasted bread with cream cheese hit he spot and I think I’ll have to pick up a tub next time I go grocery shopping.
1. Oblivion by Bastille (For some reason, I always listen to Bastille while driving.)
2. Headlights by Robin Schulz (This song is extremely relaxing and exactly my type of music.)
3. Honey I’m Good by Andy Grammer (This is so catchy!)
4. What Would You Do by Bastille (I had to include another Bastille song! It’s pretty deep if you listen to the lyrics.)
5. Yeah! by Usher (This probably seems really random compared to my other indie/electronic music that I like. But this song really pumps me up!)
I went tubing for the first time with my friend Grace! I live in the mountains, so the rivers here run very fast. Within the first 15 seconds, my head was underwater and I lost my tube, sunglasses AND flipflops. Not going to lie, I’m kind of surprised that we all made it out alive. I don’t think I’ll be doing this anytime again soon, but I am very glad to have checked this activity off of my bucket list. YOLO!
I went over to my friend Alex’s house on Sunday and we had a small bonfire with a few of my friends. He got a bearded dragon which I got to hold and it was definitely the highlight of the night! While I had a bunch of social anxiety regarding staying up late/food/body image, I am so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and went. Nights like these make me so grateful for my new school and all of the friends that I’ve made this past year.
I am a senior in HS this year, so college is just around the corner. As of now, I really feel like I want to go into nursing. Our school has a new college counselor and I met her on Wednesday. She is a total sweetheart and she helped give me a list of nursing schools that she felt would be a great match for me. It feels so nice to have some sort of idea regarding the direction I want to go in when it comes to college.
My First Surgery!
I got my wisdom teeth pulled out today, so that was kind of a big deal. My jaw has been giving me problems and my dentist is optimistic that this will help. As of now, my mouth is very sore but I feel better and more awake than I thought I might which is a plus! Lots of movies, writing, YouTube videos are in store fore me these next few days.
As I mentioned earlier, I spend a lot of time this week babysitting for my neighbor. The little girl is so sweet and it was very fun to spend time with her watching Frozen, playing in her inflatable pool, and a TON of games of Hungry, Hungry, Hippos. She also took long naps in the afternoon (although it took FOREVER to get her to finally go to sleep!), so I was able to get in some reading and ACT practice tests.
