Weekly Favorites

Posted on

I probably read way too many blogs, but love finding new recipes, travel destinations, decorating ideas, and DIY projects, among other things. I’m going to start sharing some favorite posts, books I’m reading, and anything else I find inspiring each week!

Money is Unlimited.  Life is Limited.  This is why I travel.  I know people think I am irresponsible for being in grad school and still going on a few trips a year.  But what I spend on travel is what most other students spend going out to eat most days instead of cooking.  I make travel a priority because I know I will regret it if I don’t.

Your Brain and the Primal Blueprint.  I could go on and on about the benefits of going primal/paleo other than easy weight loss.  Better mood, more energy, no bloating, no chronic headaches, improved allergies.  This article explains the benefits to your brain that result in better mood, energy, and focus.

Fig and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken with Caramelized Onions.  This looks so delicious!!

Frozen Raspberry Mousse Tart with Chocolate Crust.  I’m obsessed with anything raspberry, so have been dying to make this!  Love all of her low carb desserts, they all look delicious!

Inspiration: Book Shelf Styling.  I love pictures of styled bookshelves.  It totally makes me want a library like the one from Beauty and the Beast.  Realistic?  Not in the slightest.

Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman by Jon Krakaeur.  I’m a big fan of Krakaeur’s other books and this one did not disappoint.  Tillman was an NFL player who gave up his football career to join the Marines and was killed by friendly fire.  I learned a lot about the Iraq war and how the military works in general.  Incidents like this give me even more respect for the troops who are willing to sacrifice their lives for their country.
