Ten Day “YOU” Challenge – Day 5

Day 5 – Five Foods
This might be my favorite day. I LOVE FOOD! This one was especially hard for me to choose, because I’m one of those people who can probably find something at any restaurant. I’m not picky. I love all kinds of food. I love to go out to eat and I love to try new things. So here are some of my favorite foods, but it probably changes everyday just depending on what I feel like eating. Haha

1. Tamales
I LOVE mexican food. I grew up in Southern California so I ate it all the time. The spicier the better. I love fish tacos, regular tacos, burritos, taquitos, and etc, but lately I especially LOVE tamales. I would probably eat them everyday if I could.

2. Soup
This is just general because I love all kinds of soups. Cheesy are my favorite and then I eat a lot of tomato too. I eat soup even when it’s warm outside. I love the handheld Campbell’s soups, but Paradise Cafe and Zupa’s are probably places I go on a weekly basis.

3. Salad with Goat Cheese and a Balsamic Dressing
I love all kinds of salad, but if there is a salad with goat cheese on the menu, you can bet that’s probably the one I’m going to pick. I LOVE goat cheese. I literally would eat it plain.

4. Gnocchi
I have recently developed a love of this food. I don’t know what it is, but put it in any sauce with any filling or side and I just devour it.

5. Seafood
This is hands down my favorite type of food. You can find it in any “genre” of food. Japanese, Mexican, America, Italian, etc etc…you can get seafood. I could eat sushi everyday. I absolutely love shellfish. And if I could afford to eat lobster or crab every week at a nice restaurant I would. I also probably eat fish multiple times a week as it is.

Ten Day “You” Challenge – Day 4

Again, it’s really hard for me to choose just 4 books, so these are just some of my favorites that I thought of off the top of my head 🙂
1. A Farewell to Arms – Ernest Hemmingway
2. The Hunger Games Series – Suzanne Collins

3. Almost all of Jodi Picolt’s Books

4. Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert

say what you need to say

Have you ever wondered what hurts more…saying something and wishing you hadn’t? or saying nothing and wishing you had?

I feel like I don’t want to have any regrets and I couldn’t hold it in and regret not getting what I was feeling out, but at the same time am I just sticking my foot in my mouth? Am I just making things worse by not just being chill about stuff? I don’t know. I feel like I’m having a dilemma.

In the end, I decided to say it. Because after all, sometimes you just have to say what you need to say. I think not saying how you feel about someone doesn’t benefit anyone. In the end, at least you put yourself out there.

Ten Day “You” Challege – Day 3

Day 3 – three films
I figured I would pick these three movies, becuase they each come a different genre and they have some of my favorite actors and actresses in them. I like WAY too many movies to pick three favorites, so these are just three that a watch a lot.
1. Gladiator
2. He’s Just Not That Into You

3. The Notebook

Staircases

I’m obsessed with these two staircases. I would love to have these in my future home. They add so much character to the room and they’re like a centerpiece or a work of art. You could style the rest of the room around them.

*So my aunt sent me this funny email the other day. Thought it was worth posting.

Amish Elevator

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

The boy asked, ‘What is this Father?’
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.’


While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady walked up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady entered between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

They continued to watch until it reached the last number… and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.
Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.


The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son…..
‘Go get your Mother’
