Foodie Penpals: April

It's time for the Foodie Penpals reveal again!


[For more information on what the program is and/or how to sign up, click HERE! A big thanks to Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean for organizing all of this every month :)]

This month Becky sent me a package full of yummy goodies!



First up: two bags of homemade cookies! I love getting home-baked goodies in the mail :) My favorite of the two was the nutella chocolate chip cookies {I ate all of them by myself..whoops!;)}, but the chocolate chip ones were also delicious!



I also received a Luna bar (love!),


some Justin's nut butter packets (long gone, of course!)


some raspberry fruit leathers,


homemade granola (perfect as a yogurt-topper!), 




and salt & peppa pistachios! these are definitely my new favorite kind of pistachios!


Thanks for an awesome package, Becky!!!

WIAW: Senioritis.

hi guys! i hope you are all having a wonderful week!!

my senioritis is definitely kicking in right now - i am just SO tired of homework, essays, studying, and projects! i'm definitely ready to get outta here.. just gotta hold on for a little under 2 more months! it seems crazy that i'm graduating so soon, but at the same time i am really excited for the next part of my life. 

anyway, what better way to procrastinate my english essay than to write a WIAW post? so here we go with the latest eats! [sorry for the iPhone pics, by the way! it's been busy around here lately!]
[obsessed with the combo of fresh blackberries and vanilla greek yogurt. i've eaten this a million times the past few days!]
[quick packed lunch- blackberries+chobani, peanut butter balance bar]
[a new buy! it's definitely pretty crispy but i really like it sprinkled on yogurt.]
[mixed greens, carrots, onion, red bell pepper, turkey, avocado, sesame ginger dressing]
[drinking vitamin water like its my job..addicted!]
[toast with avocado and cheddar under the broiler for a minute]
[cinnamon banana bread. i finished off the whole loaf all by myself- in LOVE! definitely a must make!]
[semi-homemade pizza with WF crust. one slice of marinara, parmesan, and mushroom, and one slice of olive oil, grilled chicken, and asiago.]
[toasted almond butter+apple butter sammy with coffee]
[almond, cashew, cranberry trail mix bags]

and a few recent outfits!
[my tank says life is beautiful! :)]
