Me Likey Monday 7/1/13

I haven’t done a Me Likey Monday post in over a YEAR (sinner!) and as Dan Reynold’s croons – It’s Time.  Here’s some faves from the last few weeks:

1.  It’s Raining Babies: If you know me well at all, you know I’m not into the conventional.  So to my own shock and awe, I somehow found myself co-hosting two baby showers in two weekends. I don’t even know who I am anymore.  Alas, I have great friends who I would do ANYTHING for…Enter baby showers.

I hear preggos like to eat, so  I whipped up some delish Don’t Feel Like a Marshmallow Fruit Dip and Vanilla Cheesecake Cupcakes (adapted recipe from here).  Neither of these things are healthy, but both involve Laughing Cow cheese and we know I try to mix that wheel into every recipe I make.  So everything checks out there.

2.  Paint Don’t Lie: My ladies and I were on a run Saturday morning and cruised under a bridge that was completely tagged.  After living in LA, I’ve come to appreciate graffiti as unique and beautiful works of street art.  That morning, something caught my eye. Scrawled among the paint were the words “I have great friends.”  It made me smile because I was surrounded by those very people.

3. Oh So Kind: Leaping lizards, have you tried these?  They are INSANE.

4.  Muddin’: Betcha didn’t know Levi was a bad motha off-road sports utility vehicle, did you?  Now you do.  That’s what racing to the start line of an Ironman to watch friends will teach ya. I LOVE my Soul.  See #10 for how you can getchu one on the cheap.

5.  Belly Laughs: I’ve said it before, I”ll say it again.  These videos are so genius, it’s stupid.  “Ok, that is going to be really embarassing!…I’m not embarassing about anything.”

6.  Greenish Thumb: I grew lettuce, kale, spinach and strawberries. And then I ate them.  Together. #winning.

  7.  Poster Party: My friends and I like to throw glitter all over my living room, drink wine and make funny signs.

8.  Woot. Then we like cheer on our Ironmen and women.

9.  Perfect Match: A music playing beer bottle.  Need I say more?

10. Money Hungry: Did you know I am a saavy spender?  Jump over to Bargain Babe and check out my latest article on how to save cash when buying a new car.  And if you like what you read, please leave a comment – I’m in the running to be a regular writer on the blog.

11.  I love you.  Wear your seatbelt.  (Isn’t this ad from the UK beautiful?)

That’s all for this installment of My Likey Monday! Have a great week, friends!

  1. Watching that Half Ironman was so inspiring and fun! Spending the day with you (and the other ladies) was an added bonus! Are there any cupcakes left? 🙂
