What a lovely (dreary) fall day. But pretty leaves are always lovely.
WE FANGIRLED SO HARD, Y'ALL. Tonight, for one of the very few times in my life, I wanted to leap to my feet and give a standing ovation at the end of a song in the middle of a performance. God Help The Outcasts was simply divine. Chills. Everywhere. For so many moments. And I don't have words coherent enough to explain how incredible everyone in this cast was, and how fun it was to see all of these Broadway stars up there alongside some of Buffalo's best, including my high school chorus teacher, so I'm going to wrap this up with THIS WAS AN ELITE NIGHT. #theatregeekheaven
My mom showed me something she came across that was something along the lines of (forgive my paraphrasing): I'm going to spoil myself. With healthy food, with plenty of sleep and water, etc. We both loved it. So this week I bought very little super heavy junk food at Wegmans, and instead filled my fridge with fruits and veggies. I was going to save the greens for dinner but I was craving it for lunch and thought "who says I can't turn on the oven for lunchtime? And you know what? It was absolutely delicious. Also 10 times easier than making a sandwich. 🙌 Snap. Lay out. Drizzle. Sprinkle. Pop in oven.
I don't do early mornings. But tomorrow I have to. So I figured I'd #Hygge it up tonight with a lavender/vetiver bath, some chill 🎹 (🎶bath time chill playlist) on @spotify - and best of all, a cup of my favorite #YLVitality tea 🍵(peppermint, thieves, and grapefruit with honey). What a perfect way to wind down.
Happy #nationalboyfriendday to my favorite date, my best friend, the man who twirls me around on the dance floor just to show off how much fun we have at weddings and how cute we are, who is always ready to remind me that I'm a badass even when my body tries to rebel, who takes amazing care of me when it does, and who lets me kiss him on both cheeks with freshly applied lipstick and proudly says "I know, it's my girlfriend's" when people try to warn him that he has lipstick on his face. 😂 I know he's not on Instagram, but I hope he knows how loved he is, and how incredible I still think he is for everything he is and does that he thinks are simply ways any good guy would behave. ❤️
I can never tell whether I'm more of an Autumn Princess or a Snow Queen, but on October 1st I am ALL about the changing leaves. I have been feeling a little under the weather the last day or two though, so I loaded up the diffuser with these three vitality oils, and made some tea with them! 😍 Feeling better already. 🙌 for #YoungLiving #Thieves #Peppermint and #OrangeOil ❤ Oh, and apparently it's #nationalhomemadecookieday ....so I grabbed some #gluten free #dairyfree #sweetlorens pop-and-bake cookies and threw them in the oven. That counts as homemade, right? 😉 #hellooctober 🍁 #hellofall #essentialoils #teaislove
Starting Wednesday off right. 😉
Time for birthday dinner! 😍@mergebuffalo
Back to reality for Zack today. I get to pack and do a little shopping while he works. 😉but here are some of the best moments from this weekend, featuring delicious dacquiris, Zack's lips after realizing my lipstick wasn't lipsense, my bird friends, and the couple with ALL the dogs in their motorcycle sidecar. #vacationmode
Not surprised that Dani and I are with each other in spirit today. While she drinks coffee from her mug from me, #vacationmode is in full effect. Spent 4.5 hours on the beach (accidentally frying my left hip), watched the end of the World Cup game from the hotel pool, and now a coffee and some more time with my book (courtesy of @theanchorandbird ) while my hair dries and Zack gets ready for dinner. If we can find another GF friendly restaurant...
I'm already being that girl...because this dinner was SO good. First place Zack found on Maps under restaurants had a gluten sensitive menu, and swapped the cauli-potato mash out for the asparagus for my dairy free self. Island slaw and ribs with a fruity and spicy BBQ sauce....I'm a fan. Also the bartender asked where home was, and said "oh! I went there once. To Clarence." 😂
