Thought I'd put together a list of some things that have been making me happy lately! I hope they make you happy too!
Looking for some new tunes? Check out the album Smoke Ring for my Halo by Kurt Vile. It's very good, I've been listening to it nonstop all week. I really love the first track, Baby's Arms. If you click this link to his website you can download the track. The rest of the album is really good too!
I've said this before and I'll say it again, I LOVE kale. To use Mr. T's expression, I pity the fool who doesn't eat kale, or in case of one bad "ten food trends that need to die" list that I read, I pity the fool who doesn't like kale. I don't think it's a trend since I've been loving on it for years. It's tres delish, you can put it in practically every meal, eat it raw, eat it steamed, stewed, baked, you name it! This last week I had kale for breakfast with a poached egg and some Dave's Killer Bread toast, and then I had it with some whole wheat pasta and veggie sauce, and again in some turkey curry soup I made with Christmas day leftovers. There are so many ways to eat kale and it's so yummy and good for you!
The West Wing
Just when I start to think I'm running out of entertaining things to watch on netflix instant view I stumble onto something else cool! The West Wing is pretty great, which I think everyone else already knows since it was pretty popular while it was on and won a bunch of Emmy's, so I know I'm pretty late to the party for this one, ha ha! Anyway on the off chance you have never seen it before either, I will tell you it has some great writing and acting, and I'm loving it so far.
Awakening to 2013
Read this blog post written by my cousin Jenna, she's amazing. She and I share a lot of the same ideals, and sometimes I think I don't live up to them as well as she does, but I'm trying to be better all the time! Anyway she is such an inspiration to me!
