Lots of good stuff happening this week, let me tell ya. This Friday comes with a smile and big sigh because I was pretty busy all week but boy was it nice to get back in the groove of a schedule. I wouldn’t consider myself a type-A planner, but I do like to have a basic routine for each day. It just keeps me a little more focused and a little less stressed.
Why else was this week so good, you ask? Ah, well I finally bit the bullet and started designing that thing called a resumé. It’s a daunting task. I’ve been putting it off but I think I am ready to put my big girl pants on and job search. I also came one step closer to making veggie pancakes – ones that actually didn’t break apart!
Speaking of recipes, a lot of people asked how to make coconut butter on yesterday’s comments. I think I will dedicate a day next week to showing you all how to do that (it’s super easy though) along with some variations that I think would be tasty. 🙂
Not only was the week good in real life, but the week was also good in blog life! Not only did I read so many great things this week but I also wanted to literally pull food right off of my computer screen and eat it.
With that, let’s get to my Friday Faves!
When Amy posts a recipe, I can almost guarantee it’s something that will be reminiscent of comfort food with a twist. This week, her “Squashed” Banana Muffins made me want to curl up with a good book, a blanket and a cup of coffee. You should also head over to Long Drive Journey to see yesterday’s post because she has an awesome beauty project you need to join.

Alex from The Run Within has this way of just connecting with anyone who reads her blog. Just look at the comments she gets, and you’ll see what I mean. She might say she doesn’t feel worthy of all of the opportunities heading her way, but she really is. This post proves why.
Let’s be real: we know fat talk happens. But why? I’ve touched on the subject before, but Ashley from My Food ‘N’ Fitness Diaries wrote a great post this week that will hopefully help you toward a better body perspective.
My friend Kedron and I are big fans of the whole Ryan Gosling “Hey Girl” movement. This week she sent me a pin that I had to share with you.
I love it when I wear my yoga pants all day, too.
I’m also a fan of tattoos. They really don’t bother me at all. Personally, I could never pull off a fully arm sleeve or something 1) because I am not cool enough and 2) I can only take so much needling. I’ve been wanting a small tattoo for a while, but somehow my count recently went up to three (sorry Mom and Dad). Is getting an “Om” symbol premature? I probably wouldn’t get it on my heel, though.
I’m probably going to be including a lot more yogi-centric posts on here simply because I really love what a lot of them have to say, especially this DoYouYoga piece questioning what a “yoga body” is.
MindBodyGreen puts out some wonderful content. It’s easy to forget the small things in life that can make us more fulfilled, but they rounded up 10 Awesome Life Changes That Have Nothing To Do With Losing Weight.
PS: Who watched The Mindy Project or New Girl this week? I caught up yesterday and have a few things to say. First, if you’re a fan of Mindy… ahhhh! yay. And secondly, Schmidt’s final scenes on New Girl actually had me in tears laughing. You should watch the latest episode of New Girl if you aren’t already a fan. You will be hooked.
Questions of the Day:
>>What do you think a yoga body is?
>>What’s your simple life hack to be happier?
>>Tattoos: Y or N? But really, is my Om tattoo wish a little premature? If you say yes I might still plan to get it anyway. Just saying.
