I am of for a run. I need it this am, real bad.
Quiet weekend here in the blog world because of the Healthy Living Summit, happens. I have to thank Bec over at Half Baked for the Beautiful Blogger nomination. In my less than inspired state due to the large amount of drugs and after morning run endorphin high, I felt like you would want to know even more about me. Am I wrong? (Don’t answer that.)
- My sister and I shared a room until I was 16. We had bunk beds until close to that time as well. I finally got my own room in 10th grade when I moved down to the basement. I know people are always like, man that must have sucked, but in reality I got closer to her than I ever would have. We were and still are two peas in a pod.
- Before I stopped eating breakfast in high school, I would spend my elementary and middle school days always eating a bowl of cereal with my mom. We both liked to mix kinds together. My go to was cheerios and corn flakes. We never had sugary cereal and I hated all the bran or healthy stuff. I stuck with the basics.
- I played the violin until about 11th grade. I was able to start in fifth grade. That is the earliest you can take it in school. My sister is two years younger and was jealous I could start so my mom got her private lessons with Suzuki outside of school. Well she got really good, like freaking amazing good. I quit because I knew she was better and I hated that. True life people true life. My sister was amazing at the violin and still is.
- When I was stressed over school work, my mom would bring home a bag of chewy candy or watermelon for me. As you can see, I have always been a fan of these two foods. I would seriously eat the whole bag of chewy candy while studying or working. Same went for the watermelon.
- In middle school, when I went to one friend’s house we always liked to create these crazy snacks. She always had foods that my mom never bought. We would make cream cheese and saltine sandwiches, cookie crisp cereal with milk and nachos melted in the microwave.
- I didn’t wear jeans until eighth grade. I stopped wearing them after 10 th grade again.
- I never wore my hair down until high school. I would slick it back in the tightest ponytail around.
Any blogger who needs some motivation take a crack at this! I love hearing about childhood quirks.
Hail Merry is a company that I only knew about through the blogging world. I knew they were in that category of blogging obsession so I was glad to give them a try.
As you all know, I am not a cookie or bakery type person. I just don’t crave that kind of food. Being allergic to gluten just made me gravitate even further away from cookies and cakes. That doesn’t mean I am opposed to trying them though. It is hard to ignore the tagline like “Taste & Purity in Every Bite”. They produce goodies that are made with healthy ingredients, raw Organic Virgin coconut oil with no refined sugars that spike blood sugar. They are vegan, gluten free, kosher and have no refined flour or soy that can be the causes of inflammation.
I was sent a little packet of their Blonde Macaroons and a small raw cashew nut packet. Now, I had to try these Macaroons. HANDS DOWN these things were moist clumps of goodness. I was surprised that they were not crunchy but rather melt in your mouth crumbly. Holy yum.
