Five Things Friday

Happy Happy Friday :)

First of all, I know you're proud of me that this is my third blog post this week. Makin progress!

Thought I'd share a few things keepin me happy this week:

1. Band of Horses

I've liked this band for a while..but I've been listening to them a lot this week. Favorite songs currently? Our swords & the funeral. Go listen :)
2. My new george foreman grill

Makes making chicken super easy so I can actually eat real food instead of toast and yogurt all the time.  Bought mine with the amazon gift card I got from living social. Sweet deal.

3. Ashley Kuroiwa

Ohh Ashley. Good friend. Anthro/psych buddy. Dang awesome ukulele player. 
It was Ashley's 20th birthday this week! We went out for sushi to celebrate on tuesday night..and somehow she talked me into trying eel sushi. Even though I was gagging a little bit and I will probably never eat sushi again, I was glad I tried it. Ashley and I also jam on the reg - her on the ukulele, me on the voice (she sings with me sometimes) and every once in a while i'm brave and play my harmonica. She puts up with my weirdness, especially when I make up unfortunate nicknames for her. 
Love you Ash!

4. Mom & Dad pep talks

Who doesn't need a good pep talk from the padres every once in a while? Seriously these two are some of the funnest, smartest, and most insightful people you'll meet. Plus they're loving and experienced. This is a picture of them on their recent trip to ARUBA. They always know the right things to say to make me feel like I can take on the world. 
5. Andes Mints

Not only are they delicious, (I love minty chocolaty things) but I also got a ton of them from my best friend/boyfriend michael..along with a bunch of other really awesome stuff. He's so stinkin thoughtful. Getting stuff in the mail is the best.. so getting this from him totally made my week. Just sayin', I'm a lucky girl.

My parents got him the hat for christmas :)



  1. I love my george foreman. Seriously, it's like the best college appliance ever. Besides my beautiful KitchenAid. :)
    I'm glad I found your blog!

  2. I LOVE all the things that make you happy! George Foremans are the best. I seriously don't know what I'd do with out mine. Oh and band of horses...yes please. They speak to my soul.
    I'm so glad you liked the zucchini cookies!! They really are like my favorite thing in the whole world. So good!!
