Guess what?! Yesterday was my 100th post on SS! I didn't even realize it till late last night when I was editing this post, crazy! I am so thankful for this blog and all of you who come and read it! I still can't believe I successfully started this blog. I had no idea what I was doing when I decided to create one in June and now I am learning more and more everyday. I am so glad I stuck with it and can not wait to see where it takes me a few months, even a few weeks from now. Everyday there is a new surprise, connection, opportunity to be had and made. It is truly amazing 🙂 <3
I also can't believe T-day is in 6 days! There is no stopping the holidays now. Next week on the blog will be packed with all things thanksgiving, just a heads up! But I can't wait to share my two essential and favorite T-Days dishes! I will be cooking them up this weekend and then freezing them for Thursday (hopefully that all works out)! I also still need to think of another dish to make and I am thinking of just doing my stuffed vegan mushrooms, but with smaller mushrooms so it will be easier to make a huge batch so the whole family can try.
Now, I have tons of links this week...as always...haha! But I just love sharing everything I found interesting each week. I hope you guys like these posts and find new bloggers to follow and posts to like! Here you go!
Monday: Power Monday #20 Bodyweight Arm Workout
Tuesday: My Recent Vitacost Haul and Buckwheat Pumpkin Cornbread
Wednesday: Zucchini Bread Quinoa Flakes

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ 165 days (rough days but still trying) of being (eyebrow and eyelash) trich free! I have really been struggling with this over the last few weeks. I guess it is just stress and anxiety, but I am trying to keep my life as stress-free as possible, but I feel like there are so many obligations I have and I am neglecting the important ones like school. I am just touching my face was to much (so many breaks is the consequence) and I am rubbing and touching my eyebrows and lashes to no end. Not good...especially when ones of two fall out. But I WILL NOT let all this progress disappear, I WILL NOT!
+ Only 2 ½ days of school next week, yay! Then it is time to really truly relax and enjoy time with my family.
+ I am really excited to announce that I will be officially a Plant Fusion ambassador and social media administrator! I can not wait to work with such a great company whom I have close ties with already. I will be reaching out to bloggers about reviews, giveaways, and I will be helping to manage their social media! I know, another thing I just heaped onto my plate, but I just can't turn this down! I will update you more as things get going!
+ Really good workouts this week! I am feeling strong and powerful and confident. I think it also has to do with the amazing eats I have been fueling with 😉
So tell me:
Will you be doing any T-Day prep this weekend?
Do you host T-day at your house or go somewhere else? I will be going to my grandparents which we usually do every year.
Any unique tips on staying stress and anxiety free...or at least as much as possible?
