Don't Cry for Me Argentina!

Hello my dears! So this is my first "official" WIAW. I'm pretty much following the rules, which is amazing for me haha! I'm not showing everything I ate today, but this are my major meals and some fun things!


Overnight oats in a HUGE pb jar. I used a normal amount of everything and it barely filled 1/4 of the container, lol! My mom bought this giant carton of buttermilk because that was all she could find at the store, so I used some in my oats. I used part buttermilk, part milk because I was afraid the buttermilk would be overpowering. I could barely taste it though, so next time I think I'll add more.


Grapes, roasted vegetable salad, TJ's Sweet Potato Corn Chips (yes, they're as good as the sound), and a sour cream-olive hummus mixture that I used as dressing/dip. I ate lunch at work, thus the many containers.

Argentenian Lentil soup from this recipe . We didn't have any BBQ sauce so we just used ketchup, mustard, a little vinager, and BBQ seasoning. It tasted great. I also had some random scones that I found in the freezer. :)

Of course no day would be complete without cookies! Especially my mom's cornflake cookies. So good! (I had another one, besides the 2 pictured here)

So that's my WIAW.
Lots of love to all!

Do You Remember Me?

I'm still here!! I think...;)
I've been ridiculously busy and stressed, but things are looking up. I had two finals this week, plus I finished a paper. I have a take home final to complete and two more finals in two weeks and then I have summer break. Hallelujah!!

I've also been working between 12 and 20 hours a week, plus helping my sister get ready to leave (she flies put tomorrow :( ). So needless to say I've barely had time to clean my room let alone blog or read. But I literally think about all of you every day. And I'm constatnly thinking "Oh I should tell them about such and such!" and then I forget what I was going to write about...

To be honest, I've struggled with eating and a drop in weight recently. It's just so easy when I'm stressed and busy to cut back especially at school and work. I'm surprisingly not dissatisfied with my body or anything right now. But I guess it's just force of habit, plus anxiety about what could happen if I "let myself go". Ugh how many times have I been through this??

Anyway, I don't want it to seem like my life is all negative right now because its not. Not by a long shot! I've  laughed with friends from school, taught adorable little kiddos to skate, baked with my sister, and even bought some new clothes. And today my family and I are going to see Harry Potter! I'm so excited! I totally had a crush on "Harry" when the movies first came out (I was 12 - gosh how time flies!).

I hope you all are doing well and having a great summer. Not sure when I'll post next, probably in a couple of weeks.  Hopefully I'll have some pictures next time!

Love to all.
