Linking up with Heather this week to share some of my favorite things lately!

Rice cakes with peanut butter and banana with some Greek yogurt has been my fav breakfast lately. So easy, so yummy.

My BFF Gab works at an ice cream shop near my school and I visited her the other night. You guys know how much I love ice cream and this place has a TON of flavors. Settled for a peanut butter cookie dough soft serve with a cone on top… SOOO GOOD!

Also, you guys know how much I love coffee too. I switched up my Starbucks order a bit the other day since I’m always down to try new things and I got an iced coffee with a flavor shot of chocolate and soy milk. Soooo good!! Also tried an iced coffee with a flavor shot of hazelnut AND chocolate with soy milk and lemme tell ya… that is soooo delicious as well!

Blogging, coffee… All my favorite things in one pic. Pure happiness right there. 🙂

Staying connected with friends from HS

I had the time to catch up with some high school friends over FaceTime this week which was so nice! I am visiting two of my best friends at their college on Saturday and Sunday and getting my other best friend from high school along the way who goes to college in Conneticut. So so excited!

My best friend Maria and I


Hannah, Maria, me, and Ceara. Cannot wait to reunite with my best friends this weekend! 

Snow day

I had a snow day Monday and having the day off from classes was so nice! My friends and I went sledding too which was tons of fun. 🙂

Me, Jen, and Shannon

TV shows 

This week I finally had the time to watch some Netflix! I’ve been loving Gilmore Girls and have been re-watching One Tree Hill.

^Amen to that!

Because each and every individual has been through something… because each and every individual has their own unique story or their own unique battle they are fighting….  Such an important and powerful message.

That’s it for this weeks favorites, but I would love to hear yours!

Now tell me: 

What’s your favorite song recently? 

Have you received any snow this past month? 

What breakfast have you been loving? 

Have a great weekend guys!

Sending my love as always.

    My favourite breakfast right now is special K because I love cereal. Back in my disordered eating days I would never allow myself to have cereal because ahh the sugar. But now I’m enjoying it again.

      I love special K!! So so good. The red berry kind is my favorite 🙂

    Peanut butter cookie flavored soft serve sounds heavenly! I am jealous of your snow, I would love to go sledding!

      Ah it was amazing!! Sledding was so fun but I’m pretty tired of the cold at this point haha.

    I heard Thrift Shop this morning while on my jog and it characterizes my life so that’s a favorite right now. I also love Stand By You by a woman who’s name I forget =P Both goodies We have received some snow…but it was 5 degrees here today and supposed to be negatives all tomorrow. No fun at all. For breakfast I have been making banana bread bowls. So many ripe bananas, so little time 🙂 Have a fun weekend Lyss! Oh and I googled the stairmaster…OMG that looks crazy intense! Dang girl!! 🙂

    There are so many fun things on this post!
    First, “It’s not the load that breaks you down. It’s the way you carry it.” Just wow. What a beautiful quote.
    I love all kinds of ice cream, so I’m feeling a little jealous of yours! And you make me want to be an iced coffee drinker again. That was the best part of working at panera in the mornings.
    Have a fun girls’ weekend!

    • Reply Alyssa February 13, 2016 at 4:07 am

      Loved that quote so much. Ah working at panera would be awesome haha. I’m on an iced coffee kick recently! Hope you have a great weekend as well 🙂

    I am totally going to try a chocolate flavor shot in my next Starbucks order!! Yum. Looks like you had a great snow day! Sledding is so much fun. I’m ready for the weather to warm up a bit though. Hope you’re having a nice weekend with friends! 🙂

    • Reply Alyssa February 15, 2016 at 4:47 am

      It is delicious!! And I am too- so so excited for warm weather haha. Hope you have a great weekend as well 🙂

    I LOVE that first quote. It’s SO true. The more we tell our brains the truth, the truth of who God is and who God made me to be, the more hopeful I am and less despairing and dependent on other’s affirmation or acceptance. God’s love is the only one that matters. <33
