So it's Friday! Yay! So needed, I have been so tired this weekend. But I have to keep going through Saturday morning at least. I am attending a Her Campus Blogger Network regional meet-up (VA, MD, DC). Us blogger ambassador girls for the HCBN are getting together for a Pure Barre class in Arlington, VA. Saturday morning! I am so excited! I am meeting up with a fellow GWU blogger before hand so we can take the Metro together (thank god!). I've done Barre3 before, but never Pure Barre, so I am so excited! I'll recap it for you on Monday! O and Sunday is the Marine Corp. marathon here in DC! I may just have to go out and cheer on some fellow blogger friends. (But I might just end up sleeping all day, we'll see)!
Some more possible good news is that I am meeting with a career counselor this afternoon. Hopefully she can help me figure out my direction of study (or even what school I should be in!). I hope it helps, fingers crossed.
Monday: Scenes From Family Weekend
Tuesday: Pumpkin Cornbread Mug Cake
Wednesday: Recipe ReDux #12 Homemade Spicy Mustard
Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
Stand tall my friends!
Do you find yourself judging not only others, but yourself too?
I've been majoring lacking in motivation in certain areas lately...
Gotta do these!
+ Why Being Motivated Doesn't Cut It
It takes more than that.
I think I need one.
It is still a goal of mine!
I think as long as your healthy, happy, and excelling to the best of your ability in your sport, it does not matter what you look like!
Take it easy there! It's not always all or nothing.
Well that's going to be kinda stressful.
Sugar = Sugar.
Wait...NJ got the plum? That's random. Aren't we known for cranberries...
Hm, this is really great! What do you think?
No! I love the word foodie! However, Nom, yea, I hate that one!
+ Are Your A Locavore? Pros & Cons Of Eating Local
There are pros and cons to everything.
I figured this one out, but if you haven't....
Well looks like I live in #1 😉
You'all know about B12 importance, right?
Blogging, Social Media, Technology:
This is good...very good!
I guess it will never die 😉
Yup, you can never have to many ideas!
O man...girl I can totally relate to you!
O boy....so difficult!
Mine is #98...just sayin' 😉
When I was younger (and Catholic) is was such a hassle to got the special wafer to the right people before mass. It wasn't worth it sometimes.
Usually I by-pass these articles, but this...really is...funny 😉

Rustic Apple Cake. No isn't that heavenly!
Roasted Eggplant and Pepper Pizza on a Buckwheat Crust. Pizza me please!
Banana-Oat Cookies. So elegantly clean and simple!
Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate Chunks Oatmeal. Dons't it just look so pretty!?
Vegan Pumpkin Oat Blender Pancakes. These are some perfect cakes!
One Pan Spinach-Artichoke Quinoa Casserole. Mmmmm yummy comfort food!
Butternut Squash and Cranberry Quinoa Salad. Perfect Thanksgiving side!
Caramel Apple Oatmeal. I just love all the Fall oatmeal recipes!
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ AMC's FearFest! I have been turning it on at night and watching some (not really scary) movies. I can't wait for the 31st when they play the Halloween marathon!
+ I didn't realize it, but I one Lee's French's mustard giveaway and part of the giveaway prize was a massive portable gas grill. Well I told her to send the stuff to my dorm. When I see that I have a huge massive box waiting for me, I had no idea what it was. Until I open it to find...a grill. Omg. I would have had it sent to my house in NJ if I'd known! (Lee, why didn't you remind me!) So now there is a huge grill (still boxed) in the common room. Lovely. (Very cool, just not when it's in my dorm...).
+ The little things that make me smile: Taking the 7am Vex over to Foggy and chatting it up with my favorite driver, Mrs. James. She is awesome 😉 She thinks it's cool that I wake-up so early and fully embrace an 8am class. (8am is late to me!) Also the smell of Fall leaves. I smelled them the first time walking to my UW class Thursday morning. I usually don't really think about it, but maybe it reminds me of home? Third, I keep forgetting how good overnight oats are! My Dastony Hazelnut butter jar was almost empty so I made some OOIJ yesterday and it was so heavenly!
So tell me:
+ Have you been watching AMC's FearFest? What's your favorite scary movie?
+ Have you ever taken a Pure Barre class? How was it?
+ What are you plans for the weekend? (I really wish I could go apple picking...)
