the body image series: my journey

This topic has been sitting heavy on my heard, mostly because it’s something I’ve been personally struggling with lately. Truthfully, it’s been hard finding the words to try and share, especially when it’s something I’m in the midst of figuring out for myself, but maybe that’s why I’ve been so compelled to write about it. Blogging has definitely been a powerful outlet for me, but it also gets easy to feel like I can’t write about something until I’ve overcome the issue for myself – which I’m realizing now isn’t particularly true. I know I personally turn to other blogs when I feel like I’m struggling either to find solutions or even just to know I’m not alone (yes, even on the most relatable of topics). My heart has always been to be transparent and raw with all of my readers, and this post is one of those times I wanted to share my heart.

what I’m meal prepping this week + new mini-series!

what I’m meal prepping this week + new mini-series!

Hello, hello! I hope you’ve all been having easy weeks so far! I am currently writing to y’all through a mid-week headache and fingers tightly crossed for the rest of the week to go by quickly. This week has been busy since school started this Monday – having all the students back makes the days go by fast but I’ll be darned if I’m not running around like a chicken with my head cut off all day.

To say I’m not mentally prepared for this week’s episode is an understatement. We all know some major Luke P drama is coming, Hannah decided to keep Jed despite all the major red flags from his family at hometowns, and I fear my little Peter’s heart might be getting smooshed soon (even though I read a slightly disappointing article about him regarding his last relationship yesterday and now I’m convinced Tyler is the only unproblematic contestant left on this season).

Hello! Time for more of my Bachelorette thoughts – I’d apologize for not getting a post up last week, but since the episode itself ended up being a recap… there just wasn’t much to say, other than continuing to state the obvious, which is that Luke is crazy and physically incapable of taking ownership for any of his actions. We’re all stuck wondering why the heck this psycho is still here, and we all know it’s only about to get worse from here.

Happy Wednesday, y’all! I’m super excited about today’s post because this is my first original recipe! I know this concept of taco stuffed sweet potatoes is nothing new, but it’s one of the first recipes I thought up on my own without referencing another recipe. It turned out pretty well, so I knew I had to share!

Sorry I never posted last week – I just felt like the drama ended up being so redundant and painful that there really was only so much I could say, so I really didn’t have much unique input for Week 4’s episode. BUT I am back with more live thoughts to these ridiculous episodes! Hannah is still our queen, even though I hate that she can’t get her head out of Luke P’s charm.
