Aaaand today brings the weekly HLB link-up madness to a close!
...until tomorrow's MIMM post kicks it back off, that is. :)
I'm going to feature a new link-up that I'll be participating in from now on: Sunday Social. It's an event hosted by Neely @ A Complete Waste of Makeup that basically just gives bloggers the opportunity to dish on some random thoughts and things. I love the chit-chat, so this link-up rocks in my book!
Questions for us:
1. What is your favorite kind of surprise?
Honestly, I just love anything that is delivered out of pure love. If the surprise comes with meaning and thought, then I will absolutely love it. I don't need a surprise that's material or extravagant (although, diamonds and pearls do always add a nice touch)!
2. Flowers or Chocolate?
Oye, that's a tough one. Although I do have a vicious sweet tooth, I'll have to go with the flowers. I love how refreshing they are.
3. What is your favorite summertime activity?
Spending time outdoors! Whether I'm engaging in a physical activity or simply reading a book outside, the sunshine and warmth always makes my day so much better.
4. Do you have any vacations planned this Summer?
I do not! Because I will be heading off to Scotland in the fall, I will not be taking any big vacations this summer. I will be taking a mini-trip or two to the beach, though!
5. Favorite Summer Holiday?
MY BIRTHDAY! Everyone's birthday should be treated like a holiday, right? I'm a July baby, and I'll be celebrating the big 19!
6. Dream Vacation?
I want to go backpacking through a country such as Europe or Italy. Ever since I took my first study abroad experience to Germany, I fell in love with seeing and interacting with international countries.
Now for a Mini Weekend Recap!
A Little Philadelphia Fun
My best friend Cara and I had a girls' night and spent some time in the City of Brotherly Love! We browsed around for some good eats and ended up in a restaurant called Mi Lah Vegetarian! The food was out of this world, and I can proudly say that I let myself step outside of my usual food comfort zone. It was nice to finally enjoy my meal without worrying about nutritional content and such! We topped our meals off with some Starbucks and some good country tunes. I had such a great time.
You can bet your booty that I'll be returning to Mi Lah! I plan to get my mom over there soon. I know she'll love it.
A Little Fitness
I broke in my new gym membership a little more and got some great burns in on Friday and Saturday! I'm getting more and more comfortable at Planet, but I am missing my Retro! From the employees to the gym-goers, I talked to everyone and truly my it my second home at that gym! I, however, plan to do just the same at Planet. I just have to give it time!
It's not always easy, but I'm getting better and stronger every single day! #sweatpink
A Lotta Driving
And a Lotta Breakfast Love
I don't care how warm it gets outside! I will always look forward to a big mug of oatmeal in the morning. Hey, I can't be the only one! My recent go-to recipe has been my Berry Cin-Ful Oats.
I hope everyone had a fab weekend. To everyone running a race today, good luck! See you all tomorrow for MIMM!
