7 Random Things

Posted by Nicole

Happy New Year! Here’s a quick list of random things that have been going on in my world.

1. I finally got some wunder unders from lululemon. I”m in love!


2. Remember how I got bags and bags of cereal from the sorority house before winter break? I put the rice, wheat, and corn Chex to good use and made muddy buddies with Christmas sprinkles for extra flair. I took them to the New Year’s Eve party last night and they disappeared pretty quickly.

3. I’m going to miss the Bay Area. It’s so beautiful here.

4. On New Year’s Eve morning, I convinced my mom to join me for a 7 AM workout. I ran 5 miles, went home, showered, grabbed an apple, got a facial (thanks for the present, sis!!!), got my hair highlighted, and then finally came home for lunch. It was definitely a day of primping!


5. As for my New Year’s Eve plans, I ended up going to a party at my stepfamily’s house. The night involved champagne, but not the fancy stuff like this bottle of Cristal I found in our fridge. I think my mom is saving it for my 21st on March 8th… right? ;)

6. After lounging around for a few hours, we kicked off the New Year in a healthy way with a hike at Almaden Quicksilver. I split up from my mom and David at a few different points because I wanted to run, but did manage to hike with them for a couple miles. In total, I covered 9 miles and ran 6 of them. Woo!

7. It’s dinner time! This was my appetizer and my first time having avocado toast. I’m a big fan :)

Ok, time to eat dinner with the family. It’s the last family dinner because I drive back to LA tomorrow morning :(

    I almost made some muddy buddies for my New Years party too! But then I decided against it since we already had enough food. Might need to make it for myself at some point in the near future, it’s just so good! And that’s so great that you got off to a great start in the New Year, 9 miles woo!

    Omg you are going to LOVE your lulus- I have to admit though, I wear them less often for working out than I do for lounging! And those holiday style muddy buddies look delish! I’m sure it’s hard leaving your fam and the bay (I always felt that way) but you will have a great time back in LA and I can’t wait to hear all about your adventurous!

      I’ve noticed so far that I wear the lulus more for lounging because that way they don’t get sweaty and I can wear them for multiple days in a row. Maybe I just need to get a lot more pairs so I can actually wear them working out and not worry about having a clean pair waiting at home? ;)

    I’m so jealous of your new lululemon attire! I desperately want some! Love avocado toast, too. Oh, and we’re almost birthday twins…I’m March 10th and one year younger! :)

    Woo hoo for getting a kick butt workout in on New Years! That has got to have felt great. I’m also a huuuuge fan of avocado toast. Such a perfect combo. :)
