Ivie's Chipotle Hack
Maybe other people have mentioned it before, but I feel like when I saw Ivie's Instagram post about her Chipotle hack my mind was blown. She suggested getting a bowl to go, and when you get home, adding half of it to a salad and saving the remaining half for a SECOND MEAL. Um... HECK TO THE YES! I don't know how I've never thought of it before, especially since 95% of the time I get a salad when I am there anyway, but now that I know this little tip my Chipotle ordering may never be the same ;)
The Running Community
Okay, okay, this is nothing new, but when I watched the running community come together when the Walt Disney World Half Marathon was cancelled due to weather this past Saturday and RALLY... Oh man, I mean, tears, pride, overflowing love, the emotions were HIGH! I loved seeing all of the posts on social with runners taking it to hotel treadmills or running around their resort (after the unsafe weather passed, of course) to get in their 13.1 miles and "earn" that Donald bling. And to see all of the spectators and volunteers that got out to encourage everyone was BEYOND AMAZEBALLS! There were aid stations, cheer squads, what seemed like a billion and a half high-fives... I wasn't at WDW to experience it firsthand, but that doesn't make my love or appreciation for the running community any less.
In case you haven't read Sharp Endurance's recap of his "race", you should do it NOW! (And make sure to read all of the stories folks have added in the comments - PURE AWESOMESAUCE!) And HUGE PROPS to runDisney for everything they did to try and compensate for the ever unpredictable Mother Nature! YOU ALL ROCK OUR SOCKS!
These were officially released earlier this week and are AMAZING! I was actually lucky enough to go up to Orange a few weeks back to help the ladies with a photo shoot and was able to try the capris out. They are quick-drying, stretchy, breathable, and they have POCKETS! Quantities are extremely limited (I believe the XS in all three patterns are sold out), so act quick to be one of the first to get your hands (or should I say legs) on a pair. [In case you are wondering for sizing purposes, I wore a size S for the shoot, but could fit into an XS if need be. I normally wear a size 6ish in bottoms.]
|PS Yes, those are my legs in the mermaid capris for the website!|
If you read my Goals for 2017 post earlier this week then you saw one of my goals for the year is to read at least 17 books for the year. Let's just say I am WELL on my way - I just started my FIFTH book in under two weeks. I realized that I normally only read books once (and then they just sit on the shelf), so last week I started gifting some of the books away (as long as the recipient promised they would then pass the book on to someone else). Well, instead of paying for books, I thought, "Why not go the FREE route?!". The library and I have now become BEST FRIENDS! I currently have six books checked out with another three ready to be picked up (and a whole heck of a lot more saved).
