Sometimes in the morning I get so rushed and I don’t have enough time to make a nice fancy breakfast. Even eggs take too much time if I’m in a big rush. Something I’ve recently found to be a quick and easy breakfast meal is a breakfast mug cake. It’s really simple, just mix your ingredients and pop it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. I’ve seen a lot of different recipes for mug cakes, but I’ve only tried the blueberry kind. I found this recipe from Pinterest and have been using it ever since!
This week seemed to fly by, it’s crazy to think it’s already Friday. I’m not complaining though, hopefully this weekend I can catch up on some sleep. This week was thankfully not very busy. I didn’t have an overload of homework and soccer season is over. I went to track again and I started getting back into the routine of training. Our first meet is in just a few weeks! I had a few things that I saw and absolutely loved this week. Read on to see my Friday Five.
Greece looks like an absolutely beautiful place to visit. Ever since a few years ago when my camp counselor told me her dream vacation was to go to Greece, I have been obsessed with it. Greece just seems so perfect! The scenery and beaches are beautiful, the places to stay are amazing, and there is great food! Everything about Greece is just so colorful and vibrant! Enjoy some pictures of Greece and maybe plan your spring break trip to here!
These days, people have been mixing up patterns in all sorts of ways. It’s become more and more popular to take two different prints and pari them together into an outfit. More and more prints are starting to be worn recently, especially in the winter. People mix striped shirts and plaid button ups or tartan scarfs and it looks great together! Some of my favorite prints would have to be leopard print, stripes, tie dye, and plaid. Here are some ways they are used best!
Valentine’s day is always a fun holiday. It includes a lot of candy and a lot of pink stuff, but the candy is basically the best part of the whole day. What’s even better is that usually all of the candy goes on sale after Valentine’s Day, so be sure to get discounted candy February 15. Since Valentine’s Day is all about the red and pink colored things, I made a set of nine different pink and red gifts to give to a friend, family member, or loved one. Most of these are pretty well priced, too! Read on to discover some Valentine’s Day picks.
Last Saturday my team played in the state championship for Class 5A soccer. And for the first time in school history, the Lady Chargers won! It was so exciting to see how happy everyone was. Although I didn’t play myself, I got so wrapped up in the game and was so focused on it. We won 2-1, so it was really close. We scored in the last five minutes to break the tie. It was so amazing to see the seniors that night. They had been trying to win a state championship since the seventh or eighth grade, and we finally did it. That night, everyone was so excited and I don’t think anything could have made that trip better.
Drinking more water was one of my New Year’s Resolutions, and so far I’ve been doing well keeping up with it. I almost always drink my whole water bottle and sometimes fill it up and drink a second bottle. It can get a little bland though, because water alone doesn’t have any flavor or taste to it! I started adding some lemon slices to my ice water some mornings to add some taste. After doing that for a bit, I started thinking of some other great combinations that would taste well with ice water. There are so many different fruits that would make your water taste even better. Another great thing about this is that because it’s only fruit and water, it’s healthy and there are so many health benefits and it can serve as a detox to flush out unwanted fluids in the body.
I love finding inspiring quotes on Pinterest and thinking about them throughout the day. They motivate me and make me think about what I want to do and how I want to be. If you want, you can check out my other inspiration on my Pinterest board. But here are some of my all time favorites. I also love when they are made with a cute font or background that is pleasing to the eye. It makes a really neat background or wallpaper on a computer or phone, so you can read them throughout the day and be inspired.
This week seemed to go by so fast! It seems like only yesterday I was dragging myself out of the bed because it was Monday. This week was filled to the brim with soccer, soccer soccer. We had practice on Monday and Tuesday that lasted for two hours. This was because we were getting prepared for the North Half game on Wednesday. After a lot of hard work and determination, we won the game 6-0! This was the first time in school history that the girls’ soccer team ever went to State. This Saturday, we’ll play to see who is the best team in Mississippi! Other than soccer, I had some tests and quizzes in school, but not too much. This week was pretty laid back. I’m so glad it’s Friday!
I love listening to music. It’s great for bus rides on the way to sports trips. I like my playlist filled with songs that really get me pumped up and excited. These are loud, fast songs that get me ready and energized for the game. I like getting on the bus and curling up with my blanket and earbuds for the way there. And usually, in the locker room and during the warmup, there is always music to get the team pumped up. Here are my favorite pump up songs on my playlist!
What are your favorite songs? Do you have a playlist to get you pumped up? Let me know below!
I love reading, and over the past weekend I had some time to do just that. I started and finished the book Wonder, and I absolutely loved it! It was so good, and I would definitely call it a favorite. It’s very moving and inspiring and it changes the way you look at people. The boy in the book has a very severe facial disorder, so he gets judged a lot. In the inside, he is a regular 10 year old boy, but no one bothers to get to know him. Eventually, he makes friends and people learn how he really is. The author inspires the readers to “Choose Kind” and be nice to everyone. I would definitely recommend this book, it’s a great read!
What is a good book you have read recently? Have you ever read Wonder? Let me know below!
Eating snacks throughout the day is a habit. I usually have lunch at around 11:30 at school, and get hungry later. That means I want a bite to eat before soccer practice later in the afternoon. The thing is, I can’t be eating any unhealthy snacks right before I go out to practice for two hours! Some good options are fruits and other foods that provide protein, since I would be about to go out and run around. I made a list of some delicious and easy snacks for when you’re hungry and on the go.
I have my new bucket list ready for the new month! I got most of my things done last month, but there were a couple I failed to complete. Hopefully I can do better this month and maybe even complete my whole list! Last month, I made my bucket list halfway into January, so I didn’t have enough time to do everything. I’m going to try my best to complete everything this month, although some I might not can get to doing, I’ll see!
