Hi guys! Happy Friday- we made it!! Linking up with Kate today for this post. Let’s get started!
Top 3 Eats
These pancakes with brown sugar cinnamon pb from Nut butter nation, banana, and cinnamon. SO GOOD GUYS! (recipe is on my Instagram if you want it- blissful_lyss29!)
This ice cream was AMAZING. One scoop milky way and one scoop Toll House. Perfectionnnnnn
Spaghetti squash fresh from my mom’s garden! Topped with marinara, mozzarella, and broccoli with a piece of toast spread with coconut oil on the side 🙂
Top 3 Highs
-Spending the night with my bff and watching the Olympics together!
-Discovering the website “She Reads Truth” and getting to spend time in the morning reading scriptures on that with a warm cup of coffee… truly made me smile!
-My friend Jessie came up Tuesday and we spent the day together. Lunch and lots of shopping was just what I needed 🙂
OH… ANDDDD I got my nose pierced and am in love with it. 😀 (S/O to Jessie for letting me squeeze her hand hehe)
(I tried really hard to be hipster and cool in this pic but I think it just looks like I’m constipated ha ha but I love it so here it is world)
Top 3 lows
-ANXIETY. I had some things I was anxious about. And the feeling of anxiety just sucks sometimes. The tightness in your chest… the replaying thoughts in your head. I am thankful I have coping mechanisms now to get through it!
-A bad night’s sleep. I blame this partially to anxiety. I listened to meditation music though and was finally able to fall asleep at least! 🙂
-I don’t have a third!

This post from Susie reminded me how much there truly is to be thankful for. Gratitude is so so beautiful!
These tips from Caroline are definitely going to help me as I prep to move into my dorm room soon!
Loved this post by Kalia. Mindfulness is key in so many aspects of our lives.
3 things I am grateful for (switching it up a bit)
-The family vacation I got to go on last week! Maine is such a beautiful place and the time I get to spend with my family is time I truly cherish.
-The fact that I can even receive a college education. With school approaching quickly and as nerves come with that, I always remind myself how incredibly blessed I am that I can even go to college as so many can’t. The gift of learning is one we often take for granted.
-Going to the Blink 182 concert today! I’m so grateful that I was able to get tickets and that I can spend the night with my friends later on today. 🙂
And I am SO grateful for all of you who make me smile so stinkin’ big 😀
That’s it for today!
Now tell me:
What’s one thing you are feeling extra thankful for lately?
Pancakes or waffles? ( I love both! But flipping pancakes is def the challenge lol)
Happy Friday babes!! Have a blessed day <3
