WILW {1/29/14}

welp this seems to be a recurring theme, my “start it on a Wednesday, finish on Thursday” post. i’m not a procrastinator, i swear…just uber busyyyyy!

here was yesterday’s camel of the day (courtesy of co-worker), NYC style:

random thought: how funny would it be to see camels pulling carriages in lieu of horses? guessing those rides would take agessssss…but what a story that’d be to tell.

so, let’s talk favorites. because truth be told, i’m definitely a favorite-player. although i love change and trying new things, i also love to have my tried-and-trues as well.

*Chobani. when it comes to Greek yogurt, no doubt about it: Chobani is my #1. i know Fage has a fan following, but i find it a bit too thick and heavy. Chobani just gets it right for me, both texture and with their fun assortment of flavors…and the new Olympic sponsorship just kicks it up a notch. because i’m a girl, which means i’m a sucker for some good marketing.

Photostick a snowboarder on a pear yogurt, and i’ll suddenly need a fridge full. such an easy kill.

i’ve always loved their Vanilla, Blueberry and Apple Cinnamon flavors, and this week i tried the Pear and Blackberry for the first time. totally dug both, but the Blackberry might have quickly moved into my new top spot…

Photo…even if it does have a skiier on it. i’ll let that slide.

* fashion: wearing heels. although i’d prefer to wear flip flops, Chuck Taylors and Toms every day of my (internal hippie) life, heels are sometimes a necessity. you know, for work and weddings and going out with really tall guys. with the exception of my salsa shoes (which are so, so comfortable), most heels drive me crazy and give me blisters and end up in my purse or under a table in no time flat. pun intended. i’m a barefoot kinda gal.

these Tahari heels, however, are such an exception, which is why i have them in 3 colors: black, nude, and a light beigeish pink.


they’re the non-heel-girl’s type of heel: not too high, as comfortable as a heel can be, classic and cute, and with a little platform in front to counterbalance some of the heel. perf.

*race training. i’m super glad to have these two half marathons coming up in March to push me into running distance again. i did a 9-miler on Saturday (albeit indoors) and felt great, and have my first group training run (outdoors!) this coming Saturday. i love having a race to look forward to and for which to push myself to train, and am stoked to run with a crew for once. i can’t wait to get back outside, cold and all, and knowing i have to meet up with people will help motivate me. if i’m going to freeze, well, at least they will, too. 🙂


dream. create. be healthy. prioritize. laugh. love hard. follow your passions. BE YOU.


*when school is fun. i started classes again this week for the semester, and our first assignment in my Lifespan Development class (which i’m pretty sure i took in undergrad as Adolescent Psychology and in my last grad program as Child/Adolescent Psychology) is to watch The Breakfast Club and write about the development of the characters. sweet.

i dig this assignment, for multiple reasons:
1. i’ve never seen this movie, so it’s a great excuse to (have to) watch it. yes, i’m aware i’m the only American over the age of 10 who hasn’t seen it, thanks.  i do know that the Simple Minds song “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” is featured in this movie, however, thanks to my obsession with Pitch Perfect. i might have lost some friends for that comment, but i’m okay with it. hey, you like what you like.
2. it gives me a reason other than “i’m just too tired” to choose staying in over going out…which seems to be the name of my game lately.
3. i’m a huge nerd and love this whole analyze-the-characters-and-their-interactional-patterns-and-the-overall-commentary-on-adolescent-development thing. like, this actually appeals to me.

happy almost Friday, loves!

Anyone else fail majorly on any of the “big” movies from the 80s-90s?
Favorite food you’re digging lately?
