What I’m Loving Wednesday <3

Happy Canada Day and Happy Fourth of July, everyone!! In lieu of Friday faves, I’m bringing you my favorite things early this week, as I will be floating on Seneca Lake with my sorority sisters on Friday. I can’t wait! Woohoo!

1. Misty Copeland

Yesterday, Misty Copeland has been promoted to principal dancer by the American Ballet Theater, becoming the company’s first black female principal in its 75-year history. Hell yes.

2. Team USA Women’s Soccer

US

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssss!!! Last night, US Women’s Soccer team beat Germany to advance to World Cup Final. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

3. Tofu Press

I am about to upgrade my tofu draining process by using one of these bad boys. Not only does it press the liquid out of tofu for a better texture and flavor uptake, but it also doubles as a marinating dish. YES.

4. Oh She Glows Cookbook

I’m probably the only vegan/vegetarian that doesn’t already own this cookbook, but I was stalking Angela Liddon’s Instagram yesterday so hard I convinced myself I needed it. I love her! ❤

5. Donut Pool Float

Since I am an adult, I obviously need this.

6. Lululemon Run Times Shorts

These shorts are basically Speed Shorts (my personal fave) with a longer inseam. LOVE. Now you don’t have to worry about being a flasher or any inner thigh chafing with the longer inseam. And since my 5 am Wednesday morning runs with R are happening for the foreseeable future, I don’t feel bad about buying more shorts. No judgement on my Lulu addiction, please.

7. Fourth of July Swag

Happy Fourth, everyone! ❤

With warmth,

  1. I went to Old Navy this week to get some 4th of July swag because they usually have obnoxiously proud Americana, but all their stuff was subtle this year. I ended up with a white see through sweatshirt with a faded flag on it. Meh.

    • Man, Old Navy is letting us down! I found this fairly white trash crop top with a flag on it and “distressed” (aka a ton of holes in it) at UO last year for my Halloween costume, so now I bust it out every Fourth. I hope you had an epic weekend! 😀

  2. yassss misty! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I was so happy when I saw that!

    Also, you are correct, and those run time shorts are the new best shorts in my book (even though I returned mine, b/c I was feeling guilty for spending the money). But it’s nice to know there is an alternative to the speed, b/c those used to be my fav until I felt too “blobby” for those.

    If any of this doesn’t make sense, ignore me I still have to get my coffee.

    • Dude, I *knew* you’d love that Misty was at #1 in FF. ❤

      I'm excited to try the run times out on Wednesday! So stoked. I had a pile of packages waiting for me when I got home yesterday, it was like Christmas.

      And 🙂 on the coffee.

  3. That tofu press might just be the replacement for the “le cruset mini dutch oven on top of a cutting board” press in our kitchen. Also: I will def be wearing cheesy 4th of July gear, but your nephew will look classy. Also #2: I think USWS is crushing it because of all of that ballfield training Abby had at summer camp with us 🙂
