Tangent Tuesday

Good morning lovies, and Happy Bunny Bunny Day! I hope everyone had an awesome Monday:)

Thank you all so much for your thoughtful comments on my last post! I loved hearing your stories and opinions about “supporting the troops”, whether it be through supporting someone you love, being a soldier yourself, or simply supporting the humanity of our men and women in uniform.

Additionally, I cannot be more thankful for all of you who are praying for my family. The last few months have been a trying time, which I will talk about on CK eventually, but for now needs to remain a family matter.

It warms my heart that we are in your thoughts and prayers! Please also keep Allie’s grandmother and family in your thoughts and prayers. Together, we can all get through the best of times and the worst of times! That is one of the reasons I love blogging so much, all of YOU:)

You really are the sweetest readers in the world, and I cannot even tell you how much it means to me to read your sweet comments and e-mails every day. Sorry to get all sappy on yous, but I just love you guys so much!! Let’s all have a bloggy meetup and talk about our deepest darkest secrets and eat lots of cookies and pizza and chocolate, mmmk?:)


I really wanted to blog yesterday, but I was just too busy! The start of being a second semester senior is both stressful and exciting. Preparations for and decisions about the end of the year (and next year!) are being made, and I cannot wait to get a head start on my life:)

So, now for Tangent Tuesday! My girl Janae started Three Tangent Tuesday a week or two back, and I caught on with the tradition, but today I am just going to go on a tangent instead of telling you three random things because I like to talk too much🙂

Firstly, I got this son-of-a-gunster in the mail yesterday, and I cannot put it down. Can I just say that Brendan Brazier is a genius, aka my idol, aka reading this book is going to make me super speedy:)


If you have not tried Vega products or heard about Brendan, you clearly live under a rock (just kidding…kind of) and need to go check it out now (the funk soul brotha…name that song!). He will make you an athletic MONSTA:)

Also, I started two new classes! Psychology and Law & Government.

Psych I just love, and Mr. Hiller is bomb. He has incredible dry humor that makes me want to be his best friend. Because it’s TOTALLY not weird to want to be friends with your psych teacher.

Law & Government is a riot because it is taught by my main man, DWilson. And yes, I call him DWilson. Last year, I had a serious boyfriend (a story for another day), and he would bring me to his Law & Government class on occasion to show me off and just basically be a riot (he was the “funny guy”). So, DWilson and I are tight. We chat about wisdom teeth and all things hilarious like Jersey Shore and whoopie cushions.

You know, normal stuff.

In P.E. we started our square dancing unit, which is like a BIG DEAL at our school. First of all, everyone loves it because we don’t have to change, and everyone gets super into it and wears cowboy hats and boots. At the end, there’s a square-dance-off that is televised throughout our district and people actually care about winning this thing. And no, there is no prize like a giant jar of pickles or anything.



This is really really important. So listen up.

I discovered that Cookie Dough Bowls are even better with a tablespoon of chia seeds and a tablespoon of ground flax mixed in pre-soaking (ew, soak is such an icky word!), if it is even possible to make these any better.

Well technically, you could add a bucketful of Swedish Fish and Twizzlers and chocolate chips and marshmallows and chocolate sauce, but that is only allowed on Sundays.

So, if you haven’t had one yet, I am here to inform you that you have not lived and must go mix one up right now. Yeah, right now as in get off your tooshie, missy!


That is a recycled picture because I blog too early in the morning and there is no such thing as natural light in Upstate New York.

Sorry, kiddos, you would NOT want to see one of these bowls in fluorescent lighting and all mixed up, it is not a pretty sight. But then again, fugly food always tastes the best, right?;)


Tell me three random things about you!

Feel free to rant, your comments make me smile:)

What books are you loving lately?

I need suggestions, one of my New Year’s rezzies is to read more but that is currently a fail, give me something highly entertaining and delicious:)

Tell me your stories about your senior year! Or, if you’re not out of high school, tell me about what you’re looking forward to in your senior year!

I just love being a senior, end of story. I will have to elaborate more in another post;)

Talk to you later lovlies! It’s time for me to put some real clothes on and go to psych. Have a rockin Tuesday!

    ahahah ahhh i must try your cookie dough oats!! unbelieveable!!… 3 random things..
    i eat a pickle a day
    I put on chapstick like its my job
    I have 5 piercings on my ears!!

    i jut ordered Appetite for Reduction and SKinny Bitch: the Cookbook!

  2. An AWESOME book is The Help by Katherine Stockett. It’s a novel set in the South during 50s (maybe early 60s?) and it is FANTASTIC!! I would sit in the laundry room in tears reading this book. But hey, I’m a crier…. Lol.

    I’m going to look into this book you’re talking about. I LOVE reading. I’m thinking of starting a book club when I get back to the States. We’re moving, and all I’ll know is my future hubs, so I was thinking it might be a good way to meet friends… Lol.

  3. Hmm random things about me. I’ve read Wuthering Heights almost 10 times. I speak Greek fluently. I graduated college in May. I’m lovin’ this sci-fi book called The Snow Queen right now. Have a great Tuesday!

  4. Senior year of high school I was off my rocker. I was crazy and didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life.

  5. Those cookie dough oats sound fantasic! I must give em a go.

    Thrive is such a good book, I agree! I recently read the kind diet. I really liked it!

  6. Ok, here’s a serious rant for ya;) First of all, I just realized you started your post today like super similar to how I usually start mine! Funstuff! Seconly, I totally recommend The Hunger Games for a book to read; it is soooo amazing, and in a series of 3, so once you finish that one you can read 2 more! Thirdly, I’m only a junior but senioritis is seriously ALREADY kicking in! All I want to do is pack up my clothes and move down South! (which is where I’m going to school!:)

    • I’ve heard of that book! I’ll check it out, I heard it’s WAY addictive:) Slash last year I dated a senior and the majority of my friends were seniors, so I had senioritis like it was the PLAGUE

  7. I can’t wait to pick up that Thrive book! I always get asked “how in the world do you have energy without meeeeeeeeeeat?! Protein?!!”. Haha last I check CARBS give me energy and I get my protein through shakes, beans, and soy. Of course I don’t have everything figured out so any reading material I can find helps 🙂
    I’m with ya on the natural lighting. I eat breakfast before school when the sun hasn’t even risen yet. No can do.
    Best memories (so far) of senior year are:
    -being a candidate for Fall Homecoming queen
    -having my best friend win Winter Homecoming Queen!
    -senior release and snow days 🙂

  8. Thrive is a great book! Especially for vegans/vegetarians who workout regularly. It is full of great info! I am currently in the middle of Kris Carr’s Crazy, Sexy Diet and I love it already!

  9. the Indigo Girls have a song called Love’s Recovery. One line goes like this “Not counting the unmarked paths of misdirection, my compass, faith in love’s perfection, I missed 10 million miles of road I should have seen.” This is what I think of my senior year.

    It’s not bad. It was fun to be lost in love’s perfection and passionately following my life’s compass. I’ve just found a new north star! 😉

    Let’s see. I’m not much of a big novel reader, but the one novel I’ve read recently that I really loved was The Road. Amazing book! I recently interviewed Marshall Goldsmith and he has a bestseller out called Mojo. I highly recommend that book and it seems right up your alley.

    Thanks for the Thrive recommendation. I’m looking into it right now! Have a great rest of your Tuesday! (we’re getting 9″ of snow today…fun!)

    • Awe I know that song! It’s beautiful:) I was lost in that during my junior year, but this year I have my head screwed on straight;)
      That book sounds so good, I’ll google it!

      p.s. We’re prepping for Snowmageddon too, hope you’ve stocked up on food! 🙂

  10. Your cookie dough oats look AMAZING!! Square dancing unit..that is so cool! I am so glad you did this because I LOVE learning about you! I loved my psychology classes! K, Brendan is amazing, enjoy your book!! Have a great day gorgeous girl!

  11. What I am looking forward to most is graduating in general!!! Then I can head off to college. 🙂

  12. Senior year seems like such a long time ago now! I had a really, really hard time deciding where to go to school, my synchro team got 3rd in the nation, and I had a really fun time at prom. 🙂

  13. I have to try the cookie dough balls!!! I will have to look into Thrive as well! 3 random things about me: I am double jointed in the shoulders so i can put my hands on my hips and clap my elbows together, I used to have my nose, bellybutton, and tongue pierced (the last one only lasted 4 hours), and thirdly I talk in my sleep 😛

    • Girl, you do!! And that is crazy cool, why am I not double jointed?! Slash I am too much of a baby to get so many piercings, I have my ears pierced and that is it:)

  14. I read Thrive over the summer! Just finished Crazy Sexy Diet which I liked. And I’m going to check out the cookie dough bowl!
    P.S. Thanks for the hummus + raisins tip- never tried it!

    Senior year was awesome, especially the last semester because I had a few AP classes, and after the exam, we didn’t have class for the last month of school. Read Water for Elephants, it’s quick & a movie is coming out soon for it. Or Born to Run – awesome!

    • ALL of my classes this year are AP’s, aka love my life because I will have no homework after the exams in May:) Thanks for the book recommendations, I’ll check those out!

    Best part about my senior year of HS… pretty much everything! I spent fall semester as an exchange student in Japan and aside from my language study it was blow-off classes 🙂 No math, no physics… When I got back it was amazing to see how much people miss you! Just glad that prom and all those sweet things happen second semester, I would’ve hated to miss them. My advice, don’t take anything too seriously 🙂
