Thinking Out Loud #5

For today’s blog post I’m linking up with Running With Spoons for Thinking Out Loud!

Here we goooo!

1. I miss my friends, but it’s so nice when I get to see them. One of my best friends came to town, so I met her for lunch on Wednesday. Sadly, lunch went by too quickly and she had to get back home. Seeing her and catching up completely made my day. It also made me realize how much I miss my friends. I miss seeing them every day and spending my weekends with them.



2. Sometimes I forget what it feels like to wear makeup, especially during the summer. Summer is time for mascara free eyes and wearing my hair in weird ways with a headband. I look kinda creepy in this photo.


3. Not all smoothies I attempt to make work out. I had this grand idea to make a smoothie with instant coffee, peanut butter, a banana, some spinach, and almond milk. I don’t know where I went wrong in my proportions, but I did. So yesterday was a smoothie fail. And evidently I drank it anyways. I was hungry.


4. This article. Read it: 28 things no 20 something year old wants to hear

As an unmarried 21 year old who isn’t married and has no children, I get asked a lot of these questions. Let me put a few of my favorites from that list:

Are you the last of your friends who is still single? From home I’m literally 1 of 2 people left who isn’t married.

When are you going to get married? Ummm don’t I need to get engaged first? Once that happens then you can ask me.

Oh, you’re single?  I know someone of the opposite gender who is also single.  I can set you up. No matter if I’m single or not people like to make suggestions. No I’m not interested.

 5. Be present now. I’ll be honest. My mind is consumed with what I’m going to be doing in the future after December. And the funny thing is, I haven’t even started student teaching yet. So I have to remind myself that I have a ways to go before I can really thing about post-graduation things. A lot can happen in half a year. So I need to focus more on not thinking about the past or future, for it does no good. It’s a waste of brain power. And this blonde needs to preserve all the brain power possible. I need to enjoy where I am now. I need to focus on the people I’m surrounded by now. I know God has a plan for me and that will lead me in the right direction when the time comes.

6. I love breakfast. It’s as simple as that. On the left is oatmeal with peanut butter, cinnamon, strawberries, and blueberries. On the right is protein pancakes from this morning. One of them may or may not have a few chocolate chips inside. I’m a wild one. I know.


7. You know the saying “Dance like no one is watching.” You have to watch this video of this little girl at her dance recital. She is gettin’ it. She doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. It’s hilarious.

8. You can’t beat a New Mexico sunset. I caught this on my bike ride down the road last night.


On the agenda for the rest of the day is see what kind of work my Dad has for me to do. Later this afternoon I’ll go visit the chiropractor and then off to Crossfit!

Do you wear makeup everyday? What is one question you get consistently asked?

  1. Chocolate chips in pancakes… and maybe even topped w/ peanut butter sounds like the absolute best way to start any day. I mean they do say chocolate in the morning is healthy 🙂

    I actually rarely ever wear makeup. Maybe once a month?

  2. My makeup definitely gets lighter in the summer months as well… and my hair gets wilder 😆 But honestly, summer is for being care-free and relaxed… and getting makeup to stay put and hair to stay neat becomes too much of a hassle. You look gorgeous without makeup, by the way 🙂

  3. I realized after wearing makeup for baccalaureate at graduation that I like the way I look better without makeup. What kind of girl says that?! Haha anyways I’m really glad you got to see your friend and that list of questions is SO true!

  4. I can definitely relate to NEVER wearing makeup in the summer. I usually slob it out in pajamas and an old tee-shirt all day as well haha ;). I have a bad habit of always rubbing my eyes, so it’s hard to remember that I’ll turn into a raccoon when I have my mascara and eyeliner on! The struggle.
    And OHHH MY GOSH. That little girl is too funny. I’m sitting in my school’s cafe and am trying not to spew coffee on the girl sitting next to me from laughing so hard haha. GET IT GIRL.

  5. I’ve definitely made some bad smoothies…notable are the one I made with cocoa powder and arugula, and the green tea smoothie with a large excess of xyatham gym that was thick but not even cold…and I’m the same way about not wearing makeup! I’m actually one step worse-if I worked out in the morning and I have nothing to do all day I sometimes just don’t shower until the evening. Pleasant, I know!

  6. I do wear makeup every day… or at least every day that I go out! And yeah… I love that verse… you are so right about being in the present! Also, your breakfasts look so yummy!
