Fascinating Friday Links #40 + Yesterday

Yello.

You’ve answered the phone at least once in your life like that.

How has it been a whole week since 4th of July?! When did it become double digits anyway? Oh, yesterday. Huh.

Things I did yesterday: Watch my friend Sam market Cutco knives to my mother (mom bought some!), walked 4+ miles with mom, ate a killer lunch (at 4:30 PM….I’m still nocturnal, so that’s how things work right now), loaded some stuff in the car for Florida, made Amanda’s banana bread mug cake, and hung out with Daliza.

Lunch: soft boiled eggs with salt and pepper + avocado toast + jam and brie toast. FAB.

Not nearly as pretty as Amanda’s (I don’t think I combined the ingredients well enough) but so darn tasty!

Things I’m doing today: Reading, errands and walking with mom, video chat with my aunt and cousins, and a local Italian festival with dad, Daliza, and Michael!

I’m sorry that this intro was not cohesive, if it can even be called an intro. Just don’t mind me and enjoy these Fascinating Friday links.

Solo Superbowl Vlog {MIMM #22}

Hello and Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a fine weekend with some fun festivities, especially if you were watching the Super Bowl! I went solo for my Super Bowl Sunday experience, but it was fun because I talked to you guys through a camera (see vlog below) 😉

Before we get to the too-close-to-my-own-face footage, I have some other marvelous scenes from the weekend to share with you all!

As always, the fabulous Katie is hosting this marvelous link up!

Friday night out at a cute French café with my girls Je’lyn, Veronica, and Jeannine. I got an apple turnover that was just okay.

Dance, homework, Sunday school teaching, and Mass happened per usual as well.

And then there was this vlog. I happened to be alone for Super Bowl Sunday, which was fine since I’m not that into the game anyway (Seahawks won, right?). I just got kinda lonely, so I decided to film myself cooking and doing other things that you might not care about. But this is real life, everyone. No frills. 😀

If you watched that entire video without cringing, we are officially best friends. Also, excuse the alfalfa sticking up from my head at the end.

Just to add: Bruno Mars rocked that halftime show! I have no idea what the Red Hot Chili Peppers were doing though. I must say, Beyonce’s performance last year is still hard to beat….

I hope you all have a marvelous Monday and a wonderful week!

So tell me:

What did you do for Super Bowl Sunday? Were you pleased with the outcome? Half time show?

What did you do this weekend?

Thoughts on the vlog?
