Happy Friday! Looking back I had a great week, so let’s take a moment to be THANKFUL for all the things that made me smile these past few days.
If there’s one thing I love most in this world, it’s sitting down to a BIG plate of food. There’s something so comforting about not feeling like you’re restricting yourself to a small portion size that may or may not be enough for you. Enter: volumizing foods with vegetables. I know plenty of people do it, whether it be adding spaghetti squash to your pasta or cauliflower to your potatoes. One of my favorites? Adding peas to macaroni and cheese. I enjoyed this monstrous bowl while watching Frozen for the first time (finally) with some friends.
Speaking of Frozen, I love Disney animation. When I was little I remember watching The Lion King and feeling like I was literally being sucked into the story because I was so in awe of the colors and music. Nowadays that little girl still jumps for joy whenever we watch a Disney movie. My current favorite? Tangled.
I even recently went to Disneyland and cried during the World of Color Water Show. I’m a sap.
Free Food at Work
Employers really underestimate the power of work perks. At my job, there’s more free food than I know what to do with. Aka it’s heaven on earth.
The song that made my week
I. can’t. get. enough.
It was my friend Monica’s birthday this week!! As one of my dearest friends AND most dedicated IHABL readers, I have to give this lady a huuuuge shout out. She’s one of those special people who comes into your life and really makes a mark on it. She has influenced me in so many ways to be more outgoing, carefree, honest and loving. Happy Birthday, Moni!
It took me two years to realize that I have Goldfish in my hair in this picture.
Inspiration of the Week
I wanted to end today’s post with this video. I saw it early this week and was absolutely moved by it. The main messages coincide with how I view and see value in this life. I honestly don’t care how much money I have or what kind of job I have in the future – if I can create relationships like this with the people I come into contact with I think I’ll have lived a beautiful life. Grab the tissues, by the way, it’s a tear-jerker.
