Factoid Friday, 10 Facts About B

I really can be a terrible blogger.

I am trying to develop the habit of blogging every day so my blog will be a little more interesting. Really though, sometimes I struggle. So I thought I would create a designated "Factoid Friday" to keep me on my toes!

During Factoid Friday (really, I may need help coming up with another name..) I will be highlighting myself or another blogger by giving out 10 random facts that you may or may not know about me or said other blogger.

Today's 10 facts?

1. I bite my nails. A lot. I don't think I've used clippers on my fingernails in over 10 years. (Not even joking.)

2. I have a huge collection of makeup. My boyfriend jokes that I need to create a budget just for my monthly makeup purchases.

3. I love driving really really fast in my car. I have always loved the idea of being in the Fast and Furious Movies. (Tokyo Drift is my favorite...)

4. I have never seen Titanic. I will be watching it for the first time tonight at girls night.

5. I love to cook. I even applied to culinary school at one point, but didn't end up going.

6. I play the piano, and I play it well. (I probably shouldn't brag, but it's my #1 passion.)

7. I can fit my entire fist in my mouth.

8. My career ambition is to become a child psychologist.

9. I am a musical fanatic. I love everything from Grease to Hello, Dolly!

10. I am a recent convert to crimson red lipstick.

Check it out!

If any of you other bloggers out there would like to be featured on my blog for "Factoid Friday", send me an email ( ) with your 10 facts, blog URL, and a photo of yourself I can add to the post. I'll let you know when you'll be featured.

I hope everyone enjoys a sunny and eventful (and relaxing) weekend!

I love GNO

Every Friday, my friend Sarah and I go out for girls night. These girls nights ALWAYS consist of some good food, usually some ice cream, and lots of girl talk. I seriously look forward to these every single week, and tomorrow is no different.

I seriously love my Sar Bear.

More Girls Night Out Pics coming soon!

Calling all Healthy Cooks! I Need Recipes!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I know I've been neglecting this poor little blog lately, but I've been a bit busy! I spent this weekend watching General Conference and enjoying time with my family and sweet boyfriend.

I also did some shopping since I've been on my health-kick lately. I really am not one to eat healthy normally, but since I've been trying to tone up, my diet includes a lot of lean protein and some healthier snacks.

I'm lovin me some organic spinach & spring mix.

Pitas are always really yummy, probably not EXTREMELY healthy, but it's better than a burger.

Kashi TLC cookies & crunchy granola bars are a must for fast work snacks.

TONS of Basil and Balsamic Vinegar for about everything I eat. So good.

I did have a pita-pizza this morning with basil, tomatoes, and some fresh mozzarella, just tossed in the oven for a minute until it's all bubbly. Then drizzled with some extra-virgin olive oil & my favorite balsamic vinegar. It was like a Caprese Pizza!

Yum Yum in my Tum Tum!

Anybody else have some tasty, quick, and healthy recipes for me to try? I'm especially looking for tips on how to load up on the protein! This girl's got to build & tone!
