Life is bombarded with “Buy my book” and “Try this new product,” we are becoming numb to it all. AND we don’t appreciate what we have in front of us and crave that thirst. But this post, Jose and I are taking time to look at FIVE things we have and are loving right now to appreciate what is in our backyard, but also focus on the simple things of life. This is our new feature we are calling Final Friday Five Favorite Finds. These are all things we have been obsessing over in the month of March.
HOMEMADE CHICKEN NACHOS - We all know how much I love mexican food. It is the same 5 ingredients just prepared differently. This month I have been obsessed with Chicken Nachos. It takes less than 20 min from frozen chicken breast to ready to eat and you can throw on any veggies / meats and cheeses you want. When I dont “feel” like making dinner, I always “feel” like Chicken Nachos
WALKING OUTSIDE - WOW what a concept- you just put on shoes and leave your house, but you return soon I promise! Ever since we got out puppy I make it a point to walk her everyday, but it has turned into her walking me everyday. I get excited telling my apply watch “Begin outdoor walk” and purposefully leave my phone at home to listen to nature. Since the canal was paved behind our home it makes the trail a more visiting place and I now that the weather is heating up, we are turning in to early mornings.
SEX AND THE CITY - The entire season is out on Amazon Prime. This show first aired in 1998 and I remember my mom watching each week as Carrie and her friends took on the city. I liked it then, but now that I am Carrie (well actually more of a Charlotte/Samantha combo) this show is THE BEST! I am allowed to watch the full episode and I get the humor! The fashion, the writing, the sex it is so good 20 years later!
BLUE LIGHT BLOCKERS - Okay, I know I said I wasn’t going to say “Buy this product” but have you seen the Blue Light Blocking Hype? I’m here to tell you its real! I suffer from migraines and we all look at screens all day- its 2019! So why not protect ourselves! I can do a whole blog post on this and I might but these guys have CHANGED MY LIFE! I immediately wear them when I get to my office because between the phone and computer my eyes will strain. I have noticed a difference in my sleeping habits and zero migraines! I tried the expensive ones I saw on a sponsored post and the metal in the nose piece caused my face to break out, so I recommend the Amazon Choice and for less than $20 you are investing in yourself!
2/4 RULE - This will be a future blog post because I am obsessed with this new life rule! Do you ever not feel like getting put together and then that’s the day you have a meeting or run into someone you weren’t expecting? I’m tired of society telling us we have to beat our faces everyday and buy the most expensive trends. So, to block it out I pick 2/4 things to focus on when I get ready. The four things are: Hair, Skin, Makeup, and Outfit. Pick 2 and let the other 2 slide. If my skin is looking great that day focus on it and pick a great hairstyle to compliment. Or, if you’re having a bad hair day, pick out a great shadow and lip to match your fit.
FITBOD - This is my workout app I use when going to the gym. I very much am a visual learner and this app shows me everything I need. I have been using this app for more than 6 months and find it user friendly and it helps me come up with some solid workouts. Download it here.
WWE - Ever since I was kid, I have always found pro-wrestling my go-to for some kind of entertainment. I have said that it is my “violent soap opera”. This time of year is always my favorite because it’s the time of year for their biggest event: “WRESTLEMANIA.” It is even more fun now because I got Britt into it as well. We will be rooting on our favorite wrestlers when the show comes on.
GUMMY BEARS- Another guilty pleasure of mine. I love anything gummy related, and know its comes from when I was child. These snacks were only thing I really still have a sweet tooth for anymore. The last couple of weeks, we have had a box of them in our pantry.
21 SAVAGE ” A LOT “- Hearing this song makes me go into some kind of mood. I love this song and lyrics in every way. I try to listen to it when I need something to occupy my mind and give me mood changer. 21 has also been doing more songs with collabs, and the bars that J Cole drops on this one are so good! Take a listen here when you get a chance.
ALL MY RELATIONS PODCAST - This podcast is something I actually found through Instagram. Hosted by Matika Wilbur (Swinomish and Tulalip) and Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation) to explore our relationships— relationships to land, to our creatural relatives, and to one another. Each episode invites guests to delve into a different topic facing Native American peoples today. Check it out here.
We hope you enjoyed a look into our March 2019. We look forward to sharing these monthly and rediscovering what we already love.
