I don't even want to talk about what happened on Wednesday...but I will. The short version is my laptop basically blew up and I was on the phone with some sketchy IT support service the WHOLE ENTIRE DAY, no lie. By 6pm I finally had internet and a browser and apparently no more viruses and worms (but I'm not sure...$100 down the drain? They keep harassing me now telling me they didn't fix anything. I'm confused and so done). Thursday I got on my extremely outdated version of Firefox and saved my bookmarks, favorites, and passwords, to an external file, then installed Google Chrome (which I hate), but so far things are going to hopefully work until I get a new laptop. Besides that, on Wednesday I also had my econ midterm (it was horrible) and I went in the Bod Pod! in my functional fitness class we are starting body composition in our next chapter so we went down to the lab to do either the DEXA scan, Bod Pod, or just the simple test that measures body fat. I volunteered to be the "example" for the Bod Pod and have everyone watch. Haha, it was interesting to say the least, but I've had all the other ones done and a free chance for the Bod Pod...I'm totally game!
Well, I am just DONE for the weekend. Why? My Mommy is here! Yay! Hahaha, I am meeting her and my grandparents after my class this morning and then it's bonding time for the rest of the weekend! No time for blogging, peace out and enjoy this weeks reads!

Totally true! Keep all of these in mind!
Sadly, images are the most important. The writing seems to be second most of the time (at least with recipes).
Sometimes I'm just confused on if it counts as "sponsored" or not. What if I'm not paid?
Basic, but the best and most important!
They totally lie to you in 1st grade about the different areas and taste on your tongue...
Kinda complex! Where are my HGTV watchers at?!
Weird study, but I know I like to think, so....
I did not know this about Tara!
O man, read this.
I appreciated his perspective on this...you have to find the positive in something so stupid, otherwise "the stupid" wins. But let the record stand...I HATE her!

Pumpkin Coconut Butter. There are no words for this...
Vegan Zucchini Chili. How cute and yummy is this?
Caramelized Sweet Potato and Kale Fried Wild Rice. The perfect fall side dish!
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Well as you know, this week was not my best. But the one thing I am so grateful for is seeing my mom!
+ There was a mishap with my package notification emails so I didn't know I had two wonderful goodies waiting for me all week. But I can tell you now that in my possession are 4lbs of MyOatmeal (and some PB Lean), as well as the greatest new flours to ever happen to people with food allergies (I'm keeping you in suspense though until I get to try them!).
+ Tooting my own horn here, but apparently, I'm not to shabby of a writer. I got some great feedback on my first draft submission of my first huge paper for my UW class! Yay! (I still think writing is a weakness of mine...weird.)
So tell me:
+ What is the best (affordable/reliable/durable/user-friendly) laptop for blogging? Preferably not a Mac.
+ Have you ever gotten a Bod Pod assessment? Or other body composition test?
