Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down


I might post some Fascinating Friday Links later today, but I thought I’d first share with you some life happenings from the past couple of days! Here are the pros (thumbs up) and cons (thumbs down)โ€ฆaka the two things that make up this wonderful cocktail of life.

Yesterday was a long day because the music students at my school had a field trip to Lake Compounce (an amusement park) for a music festival where we critiqued and judged.

Thumbs up ๐Ÿ‘: Being on roller coasters with my best friends instead of being at school.

Thumbs down ๐Ÿ‘Ž: Getting whiplash and nearly crapping myself on some of the rides.

The moment at which I thought I was going to die. Then again, I probably make this face at school too.

Thumbs up:ย Chorus got “Superior” ranking for our performance.ย That’s right.

Thumbs up (or is it thumbs down?):ย It also took me a whopping two days to stop being sick of ice cream. I know, the long break was just what I needed. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Thumbs down:ย This soft serve was icy and not that good and it was $4!

Thumbs down:ย My friend Jeannine and I were going to go on a run together on Wednesday, but my exhaustion caused me to bailย and skip out on the run. She’s not friends with me anymore.

Jokes. I think.

Thumbs down:ย I went home to take a nap that day, but I laid in bed my over-tired insomnia for an hour and a half.

Thumbs up:ย I slept better last night!

Thumbs up:ย I still got in someย movesย on Wednesday right in my bedroom. I worked on tons of handstands (which are getting better!), pushups, tricep dips, and I did an ab tabata.

Thumbs up:ย I’m hosting a HUGE sleepover tonight for all of dance company. That would be 15 girls total in my basement. It’s the seniors’ last one ever (maybe I shouldn’t have said that), but I’m so excited!!! My parents have been so generous in getting everything for snacks and breakfast tomorrow, so I hope these girls have an appetite tomorrow morning! My mom runs this place like a hotel, as you might know.

Thumbs up:ย Peaches are in season!!!


Cookie dough cereal with peaches and bananas


Peach banana peanut butter oatmeal smoothie (using this recipe + pb)

Thumbs down:ย It’s nearly impossible to look decent eating good peaches in public since the juice starts running down my arm and getting all over my face. I look like a savage hyena.

Thumbs up:ย Tomorrow is my birthday!

Thumbs down:ย I almost forgot about it.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

So tell me:

What are some of your recent thumbs up/thumbs down moments?

Do you like peaches?

  1. Who forgets about their birthday?!? Savage peach-eating hyenas apparently :p . Happy (early) Birthday then Alison ๐Ÿ™‚ !!
    Mine is in June, squeee. I’m turning 2 :straight face: .
    Ahhahaa I always get whiplash on hectic roller coasters..your face is still fairly decent over there; it can get awfully embarassing at times. A major thumbs up moment was on Wednesday: my Dad getting me a laptab. Yeahhh, I may be going on about it every chance I get ๐Ÿ˜€ .

  2. Your face on the roller coaster is priceless!๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™Œ
    Love peaches so much!!
    Thumbs up for being almost done with the semester ๐Ÿ‘
    Thumbs down for trying to figure out y schedule for next semester ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ‘Ž
    That’s all I got today!
    Happy early birthday birthday girl and hope you have a awesome sleepover!๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’•

  3. I love peaches! They don’t really get good around these parts until mid to end of July, unfortunately.
    Thumbs up moment: Finally establishing a regular sleep schedule! Thumbs down: Working two shifts today. Haha.
    Happy almost birthday! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. I miss sleepovers! Have an absolute blast, girl! And your birthday tomorrow? Eeee! That calls for special birthday pancakes for breakfast ๐Ÿ˜€ Also… Bad ice cream needs to be illegal, especially at that price. The crazy thing is that sometimes the cheapest ice cream tastes so darn good! Like the $1 cones from McDs? YUM!

  5. I love it when peach juice starts to run down your face because you know your got a really good one. Not because you look like an idiot with peach juice everywhere ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Happy (belated) birthday, girly!! Hope the sleepover went well! My mom never let me have tons of girls over haha..but I did go to plenty of sleepovers!
