how bad do you want it?

sometimes the things you need
pop up right in front of you.
Excellent video
what do you want out of life?
what are you doing to get it?

long days, short nights

I've been so busy with school all day that
once i finally get home from my long commute
i am too tired to do anything, and i am starving
the second i get in the door.
i have no patience for preparation
and that is why i am ready to reveal my
favourite meal:
it's called appetizers, of all/any kind.
generally speaking they are always
quick, simple, and with no cooking necessary,
just throw it all together.
whenever i get the chance i make some kind of
appy as my main meal. deelish.

we call this Basil-Feta Dip
so simple and sooo goooddd

Fresh Basil, Feta, Minced Garlic,
Roasted Red Peppers and Olive Oil
and serve with taco chips


No Room For The Blues

Whew, already mid-way through September and not exactly
sure how i have survived!?
Back to school, NFL season started up, working constantly,
throwing fundraisers, back to school shopping...
there is not enough time a day!
i bought this new OPI called 'No Room For The Blues'
and it is actually more light blue than turquoise...
anyways that has been my motto for the month!
just get through it, embrace it happily and forget about
all the things that could possibly cause me the 'blues'

that was easy to say when we enjoyed our July heatwave last week!
but this week, it looks like we are back to rain :)
(which is totally fine with me as long as the farmers in the area
get all of their potatoes out of the ground!!)

Back To September
hoping things slow down a bit before October hits

so long sweet summer

Officially September and officially stoked!
September to me is as important as January 1st
in terms of renewal and change.
Since i have been in school my entire life, seriously,
September has always been the month that gets me
anxious to start new things and stick to goals.
:) :)
...back to school!
(or more of it, since i never left all summer!)
but more importantly, also back to school shopping!

End of Summer brings many goodbyes :(
friends and family leaving for school, travelling
or just disappear, due to hectic school/work schedules.
But i am staying optimistic and am looking forward
to more organized routines and fresh starts!

checked another item off my LIST (only days remain...)
by making this delicious potato salad!
i was pretty happy with it!
it was actually the first one i've made myself, i usually
just eat half of what my sister makes...

to be honest, dairy products tend to freak me out
so i focused on the potato portion of the salad and less
on the mayonnaise part...
and don't even get me started on eggs...

...anyhow! i really did enjoy ALL ingredients
and it was so good!

i used THIS recipe from Smitten Kitchen
so easy and so yummy

this recipe had me at pickles-
pickles with everything is good by me,
and secured my love for it with the fresh dill that
surprisingly was a stand out ingredient
and i always choose red potatoes because
it adds more colour and is aesthetically pleasing.
and when given any choice, red always wins

still tackling through my September issues
no complaints here!

are you excited for September?!
