Galentine’s Day

Oh Leslie Knope. there is so much to thank you for (waffles, weird compliments, more waffles..) but the best thing you have bequeathed the world is Galentine’s Day. What is Galentine’s Day you ask?

Obvs I’m into this. Waffles seemed a bit messy so we went with spaghetti and meatballs because that’s romantic a la Lady and the Tramp but also something you would never eat on an actual date :) mostly I was super excited about this fancy water.

BEHOLD! IMG_7024

Isn’t it the prettiest water you ever did see?? shout out to pinterest for bringing this into my life! Seriously have never been so proud. My entire life has been leading to lemon + raspberry water

I think Leslie Knope would be proud. We did good girl. And yes I screenshot my friend’s snap haha I forgot to take pictures other than of the water!

Have yall checked out Rachel Antonoff’s line? She’s a genius and once I saw Jamie Lee Curtis/Dean Munsch rocking the uterus sweater I immediately had to purchase this shirt. Uteruses before duderuses!

My favorite part of the night (other than the bomb brownie with fudge and strawberries on top) was us going around the table saying what we loved most about ourselves. Me: Right now I’m diggin’ my hair. Ever since my new haircut things have been falling into place beautifully and I feel like Houston’s humidity has got nothing on me. sassy hair. haha when you have battled with humidity for this long it’s a triumph people! the girls had such sweet things to say and I love that we all had a moment to shine. And of course we rounded out the evening watching a Rachel McAdam’s film, About Time, which honestly has one of the nicest soundtracks.

Happy Galentine’s Day!

So Much Etc

Hiiii it’s been a hot minute

Quick life update:

This yoga challenge has been kicking my butt and I’m so grateful for it #yogaeverydamnday

Last month I accidently (and tragically) washed my favorite sweater (ok not really a sweater but in Texas it is..) instead of dry cleaning it. I looked and looked for it but couldn’t find it on JCrew’s website or in store. until yesterday!! Do yourself a favor and get one! Or three like I did because I’m not ever letting this baby go!

I enjoy spin classes?! No one is more surprised than me. Truly.

I got these beautiful loafers!! Life will never be the same <3

Currently reading this

Tonight my friends and I are celebrating Galentine’s Day!

I AM NOT AT ALL FREAKING OUT ABOUT GETTING TO READ THE NEW INSTALLMENT TO HARRY POTTER

k byeeeeeee

*will update more soon! especially about the loafers because I’m so in love

Kiernan Shipka for President

Can I be real with yall for a second? I’m not 100% pleased with the candidate choices this year. Obviously more so with the GOP because it’s a nuthouse over there. Don’t even get me started on Trump. Or Palin…?! (get out of here this isn’t 2008! you’re 2000 and late gurl)

One of the major issues in this election is over gun control. I would love for everyone to stop being cray and realize what the second amendment is. Hi quick history lesson for the entire nation who I guess slept through it multiple times in their life: The second amendment was for regular citizens who formed the militia when needed. Because we were a baby country who didn’t supply the militia with guns so they brought their own.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Are you part of the US militia? No, then go away. The second amendment was not for you to be able to carry a hand gun into Kroger’s. (seriously why?)

Answer to the nation’s problem:

kiernan

Enter the most perfect human ever, Kiernan Shipka. Yes she’s forever younger than me at 16, but anyone who can pull off this outfit deserves respect. Also she always knows whats up on the food scene. Thank you Kiernan Shipka for introducing me to Sqirl and the delicious rice breakfast bowl and brioche toast <3 (seriously go bc their brioche toast is to die for)

wasn’t joking about the toast. I never joke about toast

Top candidate Kiernan Shipka hangs out with more knowledgeable people (Amanda Stenberg) than half the other candidates and has good international diplomacy, as seen here with NZ native, Lorde (bow down)

That is all. Case closed. Bye haters.

40 Days of Yoga

Helloooo there!

My yoga studio has launched our 40 Days to Personal Revolution on Sunday and I’m pumpedddd. 40 days is based off Baron Baptiste’s book (see here) and it outlines the entire process.This guy is always wearing a bandanna, definitely rocks his own style and I dig it. You do you Baron.

The program includes daily meditation (2x a day), daily journaling (of your yoga practice, what you eat, feelings that come up), and daily yoga practice (6 out of 7 days a week). It’s pretty transformative and I love the community it builds within the studio, we are all doing this crazy thing together and know what each other is dealing with. Plus all the fun workshops!

How cute are these YogaOne girls?! love!

It’s officially day three and I’ve planned out all my yoga classes for the week. Today is Forrest with my girl Connie :)

I’m really excited to see how it all goes and hope I don’t collapse by the end of the week! More updates to come

Rookie Mistake

When you decide to “get out of your comfort zone” by choosing a different spot in yoga and then you realize it’s directly underneath the heater and slowly start to die from the inside out.

David Bowie, badass bro

My love for David Bowie goes back a ways from growing up watching the best/weirdest movie, Labyrinth.  So many questions. Why did he decide to make this movie where he is only working with puppets? Why the hair? Why the spandex and enhanced package when it’s a children’s movie? Does Jennifer Connelly have the best brows of all time? Why is all the music so good?!

Questions that will never have answers.

I love how he got to fulfill his life long ambition of creating a (mostly) successful musical and dropped another album out of nowhere on Friday.  Whaaat he is the most mysterious and I love it.  I still remember going into Whole Foods and seeing The Next Day at the check out counter and had no idea what was happening (obvs buying it immediately). He is everything. May we all be a little more Ziggy and a whole lot more mysterious, minus the feathered hair please :)

Still confused (for life) about the (illegal) love story line between Sarah and the Goblin King but then again…

Farewell you strange, strange, beautiful man. Goblin King 4ever <3

New Year, New Words

A few years ago my friend introduced me to her family’s New Year tradition, pick a word you want to embody for year. I swear it was an Aha! moment for me. Something so small and so genius! Obviously I had to try it.

I’m cheating and using two words that came to mind: present and badass.

I want to be present for myself and the people in my life (and hopefully a by product of this means staying calm in all situations, fingers crossed!) AND I feel this is the Year of Saryah, doing me and living wholeheartedly. 2016, let’s do this

Happy Holidays my blog family!

How was your Christmas? Houston was unusually hot this year at 82 degrees, I’ve been sleeping with the fan on all week. We celebrated with way too many tamales and Santa’s questionable presents.

Every Christmas my work does a wreath auction to raise money for charity (sometimes with holiday vacations included) and I love walking down the hall to see what people made. Last year there was 11 Frozen themed wreaths. Seriously. (This year only two, thank goodness)

Here were my two favs!

IMG_6667IMG_6656This year over $23,000 was raised!! Proud mama moment :)

And now for the Christmas highlights…IMG_6771My favorite present I got! My cousin gets me :)

My mom/Santa got me a paint by numbers as requested, and decided to go in an interesting direction of wild horses..?
