I have fully moved into adulthood by becoming overly excited that we now own a new (to us) washer and dryer 🤗
.
Very thankful the blessings of close family friends that offer us their appliance hand-me-downs and parents that spend their Saturday morning lugging them into our house🧡
.
I’ve now been trying to find any excuse to do laundry while I’m still excited to do so. I have a feeling the excitement for laundry will dwindle soon 😂

This dog...Won’t eat human food off the floor or lettuce or spinach, but loves vegan bacon bits 🤦🏼‍♀️
.
.
My vegan bacon bits are made with very few ingredients so i don’t mind him begging for some bits every now and then 🐶
Coconut has a lot of benefits not just for you but also for your dog! My favorite is it’s ability to improve your dogs skin and fur 🥥

Thank you to everyone for the love and support on my post about my health.💓 As much as I don't like to talk about it, it was a great stress reliever to let the world know I don't always have the perfect and healthy lifestyle my Instagram portrays (shocker I know 😉)⠀
.⠀
I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to the day I can walk outside in a flannel shirt and not immediately want to take my flannel off. I hear Florida has some cool weather in near future🤞🏻But until then I'll just crank up the AC and imagine its not 90 degrees and 100% humidity outside 😂⠀

I've been a little MIA...⠀
I don't typically like to talk/type out my problems. While I agree its therapeutic, its so hard for me to do. There was a time in my life where I liked to do that, where I liked to be the center of attention. Now it just makes me cringe and retype this post out like 20 times 🤭
.
.
As I sit here and type this, my back hurts for the oh.. the 10th day in a row, the stress of school and side work has me on pins and needles, and because of these things my bodies practically falling apart🤒
.⠀
Again, writing this all out makes me cringe because I don't want to get messages of sympathy or pity. But I'm also at the point where venting seems the only logical choice so I don't combust. So I think its good to step out of the introvert box every now and type out frustrations and feelings 💚
.
.⠀
Thank you for taking the time to read my short venting caption with a photo of my pretty mums - I'm hopeing to get back to normal happy posting soon ;)

Supplements are important for everyone! It's always good to help your body along with the nutrients it needs🌱
.⠀
(WARNING: Long but *hopefully* informative post)⠀
I take supplements at night and also at lunch. Here is my lunch regimen and why I take these specific supplements at lunch for anyone that is curious or maybe is considering adding more supplements to their routine 💊⠀
.⠀
B-Complex: When I was trying to figure out some health issues 6 years ago, I did find out I was B vitamin deficient, which explained why I was always so tired in the afternoon after a long day of school - To this day I can have afternoon fatigue if I don't take my B-Complex. I find it helps pep me up in the afternoons. The liquid is better absorbed and I really like this complex from @sundownnaturals
.⠀
Anyone with gastro issues due to food sensitivities KNOWS probiotics are so important. They help keep your gut in check and reduces inflamation for flare ups. I know I feel better when I take it. I suggest PB8 brand if your budgets a little tight but you want to add probiotics to your life⭐️
.⠀
Lastly Psyllium Husk is great if you know you lack fiber in your diet. Fiber is important but if you don't eat a lot of meals throughout the day (like me🖐️ ) its always good to supplement some psyllium husk into your regimen from time to time to help 💩 ⠀
.⠀
I take these at lunch so they are easier on my tummy and absorb better with food. Thanks for reading this very long post - I'm not a doctor but I know I love hearing what other people take and use to keep their bodies in check and tip top shape💪🏻 ⠀

Did you know...🧐⠀
.⠀
I know it has no nutritional value but I absolutely love iceberg lettuce. And while I force myself to eat Romaine Lettuce - I prefer the crunch of iceberg🥗
.⠀
My love language is physical touch which I find most people see as the most annoying of all the love languages🤨
.⠀
I literally dance like no ones watching. Literally I do it as a form of exercise in the afternoon. I hope that it’s helping keep my body in shape but I know it also mentally helps me release a lot of tension I’ve had during the day 💃🏻
.⠀
I preferred candy over chocolate🍭🍬
.⠀
I found out in high school that I have a weird cataract filter in my left eye that apparently has been there since I was a child. It baffles my eye doctors every time because its very rare🤓

#tbt to this time last year. After hurricane Irma we spent most of our days in the car.
With no power, our house was like a hot box so Bruno (who very rarely got to go for rides in the car) became a pro at car rides and go so accustomed to it that he started taking naps in the backseat if the car 🚗
.
I’m very thankful we are not in this situation anymore and my heart goes out to the Carolinas who are about to get the worlds worst life disrupter 💨💦🌊
.
Stay safe out there Carolina friends! .

✨Product Love✨
.⠀
There are very few products from my childhood that I can still enjoy now. However, @annieshomegrown Mac and Cheese was ALWAYS (and still is) a staple in our house. I've always been impressed (and touched) that Annie's evolved and grew and created more products that more people could enjoy🐰⠀
.⠀
I remember when I first started going fully Gluten Free, Annies has JUST come out with their GF Mac and Cheese and I was so thrilled I wasn't going to have to miss out on my favorite brand that I grew up eating on a weekly basis💙⠀
.⠀
Fast Forward to today where I am not only Gluten Free but also Dairy Free - I've been a big fan of their Vegan GF Mac but I saw recently that they updated their recipe and OH EMM GEE Y'ALL, its THE BEST. The cheddar flavor is there without seeming fake or "squash" tasting (I know that was a lot of peoples complaints about the last one)🧀⠀
.⠀
So do yourself a favor and pick up the new and improved Annies Mac and cheese! 👊⠀

🍁Fall decor and out and here to stay🍁
.
My favorite type of fall decor is foliage mostly because depending on where you buy it it could be the most inexpensive, but aesthetically pleasing decor you can put up in your house😍
.
I shared this over on Instastories other day (and it’s in the lifestyle highlight), but dollar tree is my secret weapon when it comes to foliage. You can get some great looking foliage for only a dollar 🤑
.
what type of fall decor is your favorite?
