Hello Human Beans!
So, the day after Christmas 2012, I moved (again) to Seattle, Wa. And it’s been tough and I haven’t seen the sun in daysssss.
So I decided to be it! Got this sweater at Salvation Army for $2.50 last Black Friday. ;) 
Gramma sweaters all day everyday.
And I also got a haircut! Donated my hair to Locks of Love! :)

Made the tiny fez from a solo cup and some string. :)

Dear Human Beans,

        Hello! I’ll just jump straight into it. I’m really sorry I haven’t posted a lot of thrifted outfits and such. FIRST OF ALL, I haven’t been thrifting at all because I am even more broke than usual. And Secondly, this is going to sound really grossly insecure but I just feel really fat. I tried taking photos of my outfits but I just don’t feel good about my body and how I look. Since my best friend left I gained so much weight. And please don’t think that I’m pro-skinny and anti-fat. It’s not that, because all I am is pro-healthy and feeling good about yourself. And so I’m working on that now. Especially now that I’m officially a full-time college student which is crazy because I haven’t been in school for three years. But anyway, my best friend and I were really inspired by this Hello Giggles Article, challenging us to be our fittest in college and beating the “Freshman 15.”. I’ve been riding my bike to and from school! I’m looking forward to getting back to feeling good about my body and hopefully getting back to blogging! 

*Photograph taken by my mother from my gig last Saturday with my friend, RJ. Which was supposed to be at the Farmer’s Market but when we got there they TRIPLED BOOKED. Which meant someone was already playing when we got there, but awesome people at Railroad Book Depot and Steeltown Coffee & Tea invited us to play so time wasn’t wasted. :)

Baked Penne Pasta w/ Spinach and Turkey Burger Meat

Yeaaahh, my mom buys the same thing over and over again every time she goes to the grocery. Because it’s easy. I completely understand that, but frozen burgers and potstickers get old after a while. 

I was craving some baked penne pasta and didn’t have enough money to buy some ground turkey or beef so I used the frozen Turkey Burgers and it came out pretty good! :)
