Feel Good Friday: 6 Random Things You May Not Know I Love

It’s Friday, hey hey hey!!

How are you guys doing this morning?

With the long weekend ahead (and only two weeks out from the big day), I’m really looking forward to just kickin’ it with Sam and having that extra day off Monday.

Today’s post is super random and a bit more personal than usual, but since I’ve been blogging, I’ve found that it seems you guys really respond to my more personal/lifestyle posts, so here goes nothin’!

Here are 6 random things you may not know about me (confirmed by Sam, lol):

  1.  Bananas and peanut butterPBBanana.jpgJoy The Baker

    Was there ever a better combo than these two? Answer: no. Sweet and salty and everything good. I could have this snack morning, noon, and night and be the happiest camper!Ever since I was little, this has been my go-to. And, if you add chocolate to the mix…. consider me 100% satisfied. Have you tried the pair? Do you love them too?
  2.  Stationary/greeting cards

    I could get lost in The Paper Store or Papyrus in their rows and selections of greeting cards. Same goes for Jo-Ann Fabrics and Michael’s card stock options.There’s just something about great quality paper and personalized cards that really speak to me. It’s gotta be my artistic side and my love for writing/giving cards. That probably also explains how I got into making my own cards about seven years ago. I have had so much fun crafting and gifting them to special people in my life. I’ve never sold them, but it’s always something I’ve wanted to start doing on the side.

    If you’re interested in learning more, I’d be happy to chat with you about it!

  3.  Sleeping in complete darkness (LOL)

    Sleep masks for life Sam will make fun of me, but I really need peace and quiet—and darkness—to fall/stay asleep. If that means putting a pillow over my eyes, I’ll do it. I even have a really beautiful lavender-scented eye pillow I use sometimes.Since living in an LA apartment, it can get loud at times and the sunlight peeks through our blinds, so I gotta work hard for that darkness! Haha…. what can I say?!
  4.  HomeGoods

    The Bomb Life

    Don’t even get me started on this store. Ob-sessed. I could spend hours perusing the aisles and anytime I plan on buying just one thing, I walk out with ten. They have the cutest items!!I’ve even found tons of stuff for our wedding here—like table embellishments and small decorative boxes. Is anyone else as equally into HomeGoods as me? Then there’s TJ’s and Marshall’s…. Anywayyyyy….
  5.  The Bachelor/Bachelorette

    ABC’s The BacheloretteOkay, I have a confession. I’ve watched every—yes, every—season of this show. That’s 15 years, people! I started watching it every Monday with my mom in high school and have just kept watching year after year. I know a lot of it must be staged and it’s definitely a bit gossipy, but I just can’t help loving it. It’s fun to watch and I am a sucker for love/dating/romance stories.Even if it’s not all real, what do I care?! I’m SO pumped The Bachelorette is back in season. You know where you can find me every Monday night—on the couch, baby, with a glass of rose in hand!
  6.  Acai bowls
    AcaiBowl
    Lean Green Nutrition FiendThank heavens for acai bowls. I mean, c’mon! Have you ever had one? It’s basically pureed acai berries that are blended into a smooth mixture. Then it’s usually topped with berries/bananas and granola.Lots of places add their own special touches to them, but that’s usually the gist! Man, these are good. I feel like they are super refreshing and fulfilling.  If you’ve never tried one, get ON it! You’ll be having them all the time… like moi.

    Have any random things you’re into that not many people know? Do share!

Be you,
Ari
