Thinking Out Loud: Cake for Breakfast

Good morning everyone! Today I’m linking up with Running With Spoons for Thinking Out Loud.

Birthday cake is always acceptable for breakfast. Always.

My cousins look older than me, but I’m actually the oldest one. (My sister is in the middle.)


Sometimes buying the wrong socks ends up being a life saver when you don’t want to shave your legs. (I know my thighs are exposed, but its really the lower half of my legs that get a little jungle-ish).


The land has been greening up at home and looks beautiful right now. Say hi to the steers. I usually go with “Hey boys!” They always lift a hoof and wave at me or nod their head in recognition or turn and run the other way.


When working for my Dad on our farm my hairstyle of choice is a cap. I just pull my hair through the back and voila! hair is done for the day.


I didn’t work out yesterday. Tuesday’s workout at Crossfit was a tough one anyways.

WOD: 20 min of AMRAP

400m Run

10 Snatch-grip Deadlifts

20 Abmat Sit-Ups

30 Double Unders or 90 single unders

Once 4 rds were completed you got on a rower. I rowed for about 1 minute.


Some of the kitties wanted to get into a staring contest the other day. They won. They beat me with their cuteness.


My Mom made my favorite enchiladas for my early birthday dinner last night and they were super delicious and a little spicy with all the green chile! By the way don’t you just love our orange counter tops! I bet you’re going to pin orange counter tops on pinterest right now. Kidding.


As I get older, I’ve realized that the gifts I get for my birthday really don’t matter. It’s just a nice reason to gather with family. It’s a nice reason to get together with your friends. Plus the gifts you get as a young adult aren’t as cool anyways. I’m incredibly blessed to have the family that I do.


Have a great Thursday! Be sure to come back tomorrow for 21 Things I’ve Learned My 21st Year! Trust me I’ve learned a lot!

No questions. Just share your thoughts!

100th Blog Post & Currently


I can’t believe this is my 100th blog post!! Hence the reason for the confetti picture because it’s exciting!! 100 is a pretty big number to fathom. When thinking about what I wanted to blog about for my 100th blog post I decided to do a “currently” post so I can look back someday and be embarrassed at all the random and ridiculous things plaguing my mind.

Moving forward. A blogger I follow, Little Misadventures, does these currently blog posts. I wrote this up this morning before I posted this, so put yourself in a morning mindset.


Making: These past few days I’ve been making scrapbook pages for my fellow senior sorority sisters. That’s something being in a sorority has helped me with is being crafty.

Drinking: A cup of coffee with Italian sweet cream creamer.

Reading: I’ve been catching up on my Bloglovin’ feed and this article: 13 Socially Acceptable Ways You Act Only With Your Best Friends. It’s crazy how accurate that is.

Wanting: I’m wanting time to slow down, but at the same time I want my school work to be done.

Looking: I’m still looking at Pinterest for inspiration to redecorate my room.

Eating: I just had a bowl of oatmeal with peanut, blueberries, and blackberries for breakfast.

Wishing: I’m wishing I could go back to points in my college career and relive those moments. My roommate is still my best friend today and we were both reminiscing about our freshman year last night.

Enjoying: I’m enjoying waking up this morning and not having any immediately pending homework to get done.

Waiting: I’m waiting on this coconut oil I have slathered in my hair to soak in so I can hop in the shower.

Liking: I’m really liking the weather we are having here in New Mexico. It’s warm, but not too hot outside. As long as the wind doesn’t decide to show up, it’s really nice here.


Loving: I have loved Calvin Harris since last summer, but now I’m truly in love with his new song “Summer.” Calvin Harris can meet me in the summer anytime.

Hoping: I’m hoping that my group for my theater class has written the lesson plan for our presentation on Wednesday.

Marveling: I know my constant talking about time and graduating and being sad about my friends must get annoying, but I’m truly marveled by time. When you’re a freshman you don’t listen when people say these next 4 years will go by fast. It’s not until you’re in your senior year and thinking “holy cow! how can I be a senior already?!”

Smelling: I have an awful sense of smell, so I can’t smell anything worth noting right now.

Wearing: I look like a total scrub right now. Big t-shirt and a old pair of boxer shorts with a messy bun.

Noticing: I’m noticing that I’m pretty good at the whole teaching thing. I got my evaluation back today and I had really nice and encouraging comments from my evaluator on there.

Thinking: I really need to get in the shower to get ready for class. Hopefully, I really didn’t have any homework I should have been working on.

Feeling: Sad. Happy. Reminiscent. Bittersweet. Stressed.

Last but not least thank you to all the people who read my blog! I appreciate you taking time out of your day to read the words I have written and look at the pictures I post! Have a great Tuesday afternoon everyone!
