Happy Friday the 13th! Let’s break all the rules on this superstitious day, okay? Walk under a ladder! Break a mirror! Stand near a black cat! Open an umbrella inside! Don’t cross your fingers! Don’t knock on wood!
I’m not going to lie:
sometimes most of the time I am superstitious. So I won’t be doing any of that. Also, I think black cats are beautiful and if I were going to get a cat, it’d be a black one. They’re my favorite!
Oh, you want to hear more of my favorites, you say? Okay!
A word of caution – if you look at my favorite posts, they’re all of food. There was a lot of thoughtful goodness around the blog world this week, but… I was HUNGRY!
Favorite sweet tooth:
When I was little, my mom never let me eat Oreos because they would stick in my teeth. Mom? Can I eat these please? But they’re Davida’s Healthy Peppermint Oreo Cookies!
Favorite cold weather fix:
I don’t like traditional tomato soup. There, I said it. The consistency kills me. When I saw that Liz made a chunky tomato soup with brown rice, though, I was all in!
I just told my friend Brittany that I wanted to make curry because I was craving it like a mad woman. The next day, I saw this Curry in a Hurry recipe! Signs from the universe.
I’m still trying to figure out my cookie lineup for this year, so I’ve been searching Pinterest. These Butterscotch Molasses Pudding Cookies are a contender.
Favorite life lesson:
It’s no secret that I have been loving yoga lately. I know there’s a lot of blah blah blah surrounding who is or isn’t a “yogi,” but I’m going to consider myself one. Kay? Cool. So I started researching yoga sites recently to learn even more. If you haven’t heard of it, Do You Yoga is a pretty cool and inspiring site. I personally connected with “5 Life Lessons I Learned on the Yoga Mat” this week.
Back to the superstitions. I thought of one more. Say “Beetlejuice!” three times. See what happens.
I’m off to do a tabata workout and then hit up my dad’s friend’s Christmas party. Should be a good time!
