Rest Day = Best Day

Happy Friday all! I am totally ready to enter hermit mode this evening, with yoga pants, a glass of vino and House of Cards on my TV. So pumped. It has been a long week, and I am glad to have made it to Friday intact. The stars have aligned, and this Friday is perfectly in sync with my “I need to be horizontal!” rest day. Yoga stretching video(es) on YouTube, here I come! 🙂 Now for why you really stopped by B&B today, here are some great things that I’ve been loving this week:

  1. Tituss has his own Pino Noir. YUSSSS.

I am cry-laughing at this, because I thought his “Peeno Noir” video episode on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was perfection. He is so talented, so funny and I love him. I need to find this! The end.

2. As mentioned above, House of Cards Season 4 is out!

If you need a re-cap like me, there is a great one in the New York Times today. I can’t wait to see what happens!  As you can see, I hate Netflix. 😉

3. I need this hydration backpack.

This is the updated, for femmes only hydration pack designed by Ultimate Direction. I. Need. This. Sadly for me, it doesn’t really mesh with my grad student budget, so….yeah. I’ll be getting this is a few years/seasons when it goes on sale. It has collapsable water bottles in the front pockets (no sloshing!), better/roomier pockets, enough space to fit a 50 or 70 oz hydration pack in the back and is made to fit women properly. Amaze!

4. Chloe’s Kitchen

This cookbook has lived up to its hype. I made a version of her Tempeh Piccata this week, and it was phenomenal – great flavor, texture, filling and satisfying! So yummy. I can’t wait to make some of her desserts this week – she rose to fame after winning Cupcake Wars with a vegan cupcake recipe (and it’s included in this cookbook!). All of the cookbooks I have gotten recently are wonderful and so inspiring. I’ll be posting my version of her recipe this week or weekend, so you can see what it looks like when B&B makes it. 😉 Vive Vegan Cooking!

Well that’s all I’ve got for today – my mind is on comfy pants, Netflix and total relaxation. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! This next week is “Spring Break” (yes, in quotes – grad students don’t really get a spring break, as we are expected to be here doing our work) and it will be a nice week off from classes.  The weather is supposed to be a little warmer and more spring-like where I live, and the break from sharing gym equipment with the undergrads is also a bonus! 😉

What do you guys have planned for this weekend? Anything fun? I’ll be doing all the normal stuff with some bonus rest and relaxation. 🙂

Hope you all have a weekend full of Booyah!

With warmth,

L

  1. Whoo! House of Cards! The boyfriend and I have plans to binge watch the rest of season 3 and start this ASAP. 🙂

    I’m going to have to look into that cookbook!
