Love List

21 Jan

I know it’s not even February yet but I love Valentine’s Day! I think it’s because everything is in shades of pink….there’s no way I’m the only girl in the world who thinks Target is even more addicting and appealing when this time of year comes around?!

Here are some things I’m loving right now!

1)  Peppermint. I’m still stuck in the peppermint phase – peppermint tea, peppermint baths, peppermint lotion (thank you Lindsey!!! I’m blaming this obsession a little on you hehe) So refreshing!

2)  Yoga, still. 🙂 I’ve been trying to do a minimum of 10 minutes of yoga a day just to de-stress mainly and keep stretching. I have really tight hamstrings (probably from all the running I use to do without ever stretching!) so a lot of poses that I try that involve extending my legs, I struggle with. Plus it’s something I enjoy and that’s what life is all about right?! Doing things that make you happy.

3)  Wellness in the workplace. To fight the winter blues, the company I work for has purchased some exercise equipment and now has a small gym in the building that employees can use. They are also implementing a wellness committee to host luncheons and encourage healthy lifestyles. I think that’s awesome!

4)  New Girl. Loving this show! I love Jess’ outlook on life, she is true to herself and has fun living her life, even the ordinary days. David and I are watching Blacklist together right now, another great show! And of course loving Chicago Fire & Chicago PD…Geez, for not having actual cable/dish, we sound like we always watch TV…

5)  Pinterest. It’s like a virtual dream catcher….anything you ever dreamed of is there. Your dream house, dream closet, dream desserts, dream parties; all kinds of things to inspire you. It’s truly the best of so many worlds! I am pretty sure the word “Pinterest” is equally as important as “Googling” these days (I’ve even been heard saying the word ‘Pinteresty’ when referring to something). It’s a very important word in my vocabulary! Although it’s kind of a big time sucker, it’s so much more of a ‘feel good’ thing than scrolling through Facebook a lot of the times.

6)  SheReadsTruth. If you are interested in expanding your faith, this site is awesome (you can also get an App for your phone). They do such a great job of relating the readings to your daily life.

7)  Naked3. My parents gave me this for Christmas, I LOVE it! The colors are awesome and I’ve had so much fun experimenting! Check out my friend Emily’s tutorial on it…(along with all of her videos!)

8)  Dark Horse. I don’t know what it is about this song but I typically repeat it about 5,000 times… so far the radio hasn’t been overplaying it, yet….give it a few more weeks and I’ll never want to hear it again! 

9)  The thought of spring. I won’t lie, we just had a fresh snowfall and it made me happy because it freshened everything up and made it kind of sparkly – but that’s it. It ends there. I’m ready for spring. Warmer weather, green grass, walks outside, grilling out (that one’s for you P!), yoga on the deck….sigh….

10)  These cookies. They are very good! Gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and vegan.

….And apparently exclamation points …I just realized how often I end a sentence in an exclamation point! o boy!

    So happy I could help you start an obsession 😉
    I LOVE New Girl, do you watch Two Broke Girls? I love it too. I like way too many shows lol.
    I cannot wait for Spring, right now it seems years away with the five feet of snow outside 😦

    Sounds like a pretty awesome list to me 😀 I’m so glad that you’re still enjoying Yoga, I’m missing it so much these days!! And what an awesome thing that your work is doing, especially with all the snow you’ve been having : ) I’ve watched a few episodes of New Girl and really like it too, but we already have so many shows that we watch I don’t think it’d be healthy to add another, hehe ; ) Oh and I need to listen to that song ASAP!!

    P.S. Can’t wait for you to be able to “Grill Out!” haha 😀

    I love your list. It’s a good reminder to be thankful for the small things everyday.
