Snacky Snacks {MIMM #2}


I hope your Monday is off to a great start! Today marks the start of dance bootcamp, and I’m so excited to get back into it and see all my company girls again! This morning starts with conditioning taught by a buff and intense jazz teacher, who I love, but I know I’m about to get my butt handed to me.

Today I’m also joining Katie’s Marvelous in My Monday again! Beware: lots of snacks in this post.


Marvelous is…

My family. God gave me a mother, father, and brother who know exactly how to deal with my annoying life issues. Friday night going into Saturday was really rough due to some severe insomnia. My parents prayed with me, comforted me, and did what they could to try to help me fall asleep. And Ben tried to give me some advice on relaxation. Despite my hardships in not being able to sleep, my heart is overflowing with gratitude and love for them.

Marvelous is…

God’s Word. #shereadstruth


Marvelous is…

Reading this awesome story. Mao’s Last Dancer is one of my summer reading books, and I am loving it! It’s a true story about a Chinese boy with a very poor peasant background, who is randomly chosen to learn ballet as a part of Chairman Mao’s artistic army for Communism (or something like that). He ends up becoming one of the best at the academy and comes to America to pursue his dreams and escape the hopeless destiny of being a peasant worker for the rest of his life.



I still have about 50 pages to go, and I can’t wait to finish! *Note: if you buy this book through iBooks like I did, just know that the only version available is the Young Reader’s version, which I did not realize until I started reading it. Thus, the reading is a little on the basic side, but the story is still wonderful.*

Peaches! Gotta eat them while they’re still in season.

Lunch with my great aunt and her friend! They’re both Maryknoll sisters. We went back to the Vietnamese restaurant at which we ate when coming back from Canada. (<–I think that is proper grammar, but it sounds weird. Eh.)

Browsing through a bunch of Asian treats that I used to love. Who doesn’t love panda bears stuffed with cream? C’monnn.

Chobani that tastes like a creamsicle.


Not so marvelous is it spilling onto my camera as I excitedly stirred it. Nice work, Alison.


And this smoothie that tasted like a creamsicle.

Ana’s farewell barbecue! Ana is one of the girls from dance company last year and she’s leaving for college soon, so we celebrated (happily and sadly)!

Good luck, Ana! We’ll miss you!

The Great Food Truck Race on Food Network! Does anyone else love this show?

Have a great Monday!

So tell me: What are some snacks you’ve been loving lately? Have you ever tried Pocky or Hello Panda? How was your weekend?

  1. I love that show! I’ve been loving the usual quest bars, dark chocolate covered dried blueberries, and Cherry twizzler nibs…all of which are highly addicting! Mmmm
    And it’s so nice that you’re family prays with you:) that’s really important and I admire that!
