Legitimately everywhere I turn there is another engagement. Friends from my childhood, friends I just met in the past year, heck, people at restaurants where I’m eating – it is the season of wedding engagements and DIAMONDS!
Being on Instagram all the time can seem like an anti-social way of living to someone who just scrolls their feed and likes a few photos here and there. But as a blogger, it’s my job to interact with people online. And do you know what? I’ve actually made some great friends who love the same things that I do!

Do y’all have the problem of buying bananas and then seeing most of them go immediately to a non-edible shade of brown? Every week I seem to have at least three overripe bananas sitting on my counter, and I’ve gotten sick of the same old recipes. Freeze them for smoothie bowls and nice cream?

You know when a DIY is almost not a DIY? Like it’s too easy to be a DIY and you feel like you’re cheating at crafts? That’s these DIY Valentine’s Day decorations.
Two things make me really excited about today’s DIY:
- One of my favorite Christmas movies is Elf, and I feel that this quote just really embodies the movie and also my diet.

- Watching Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate with my friends to get pumped for the holiday
- Driving around Houston to see all of the gorgeous Christmas lights
- Baking and decorating Christmas cookies
