Latest Link Love

Hi guys! Long time no talk, once again.

I’m back at school now for my last semester, so things have been hectic around here as I juggle classes, job apps, and senior year shenanigans!

I’ll definitely need to write an update post one of these days, but today I’m popping in to say a quick hello and share some more of my favorite Internet finds from lately.


As always, thanks to Amanda and Heather for hosting their awesome link-up parties!

Before I get to the links, I just wanted to share some news that I recently shared on Instagram

Easy No-Bake White Chocolate Golden Oreo Truffles + Some Thursday Thoughts

As I promised, today I’m sharing a delicious recipe that’s perfect for a New Year’s Eve party, or any day of the (new!) year.

I made these bad boys for our Christmas Eve party, and my family loved them. They’re decadent and delicious and I made sure to make plenty so we also had more than enough for Christmas and a few other family parties last weekend.

Like I said, there are tons of recipes for these (all you have to do is Google “Oreo truffles” and you’ll come across pages of different varieties!), but I put my own little spin on them based loosely off of this recipe.

My mom gets migraines from chocolate (I know, it’s super sad for her, too), so I wanted to make a dessert that she could enjoy. This led me to… White Chocolate Golden Oreo Truffles. Yum.

A Little Christmas Recap + Some Links I Love

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and that you had a very merry Christmas if you celebrate! 

I had an absolutely amazing Christmas. It was so, so nice to be home with my parents and all three of my older brothers. We haven’t all been home together in quite some time, so there was nothing more I wanted this holiday season than lots of quality fam time.

I feel so happy and blessed that we could all be together because my family is truly the greatest gift. As much as I love the Christmas cheer, music, baking, treats, shopping for presents, coziness, and excitement of the holiday season, my favorite thing about Christmas time is being with my loved ones. There’s seriously nothing better.

Clearly not the most recent picture, but it was too cute not to share – haha!

To kick off the holiday weekend, we went to Christmas Eve mass and then had our usual Christmas Eve lasagna dinner (and fun yankee swap) at my aunt’s house, which is a tradition we’ve had for years.

Friday Favorites (12/18/15)

Happy Friday you guys! Hope you’re all doing well on this fine December day.

I’m in a great mood because I’m finally done with finals and back at home for the holidays!

I can’t believe that fall semester of my senior year in college is already over, and that I only have one semester left… but let’s not talk about that.

I’ll put the sentimental senior-in-college thoughts aside for another day, because right now, it’s time to just sit back, relax, and enjoy Christmas break!

I still owe you a half marathon recap (if you want one?), but today I wanted to link up with Heather to show you some of the things I’ve been loving lately!

‘Typical’ Won’t Be So Typical

Happy Hump Day!

As I said in my last post, I haven’t been able to get on here as much as I wanted to lately between working, packing, seeing friends, and getting ready to leave this Sunday for my semester abroad in Italy.

I’m packing like a mad woman these days, but I really wanted to drop by here quickly to do one last WIAW in America (til late December anyway!). My next WIAW will be in Europe. Ummm WHAT?!?

It still has yet to hit me. I think it won’t sink in until I’m literally at the airport. What has kind of hit me is that the food I eat and the things I do all the time here, my ‘typical’, if you will, won’t be so typical when I’m in Europe. I can’t wait to find out (read: taste) what my new ‘typical’ will be!

As always, thanks to Jenn for this lovely link-up!

My typical breakfast as of late has been a ‘strawberry banana mocha protein smoothie’. Looks sad, tastes like Starbucks. Just sayin’.

In the blender: 1/2 frozen banana + 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt + handful frozen strawberries & spinach + 1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein powder + ice + splash (or five) of coffee. Perfection.

I’ve been really into cheese and fruit lately. You know how much I love my eggs, so I’ve found that scrambling an egg with laughing cow mozzarella and thinly sliced fruit is fabulous (granny smith apples, white nectarines, or pears have been my go-to’s). Add some form of carbs (naturally) and you have a complete meal!

As good as this combo is, I absolutely cannot wait for Italian mozzarella (and every other kind of cheese). All day, everyday, baby.

I will miss my Cosi. It’s my fave, I think that’s pretty clear to see if you’ve read my blog for, like, a week.

Of course I’ll greatly miss my parents’ home cooked meals that I get so used to when I’m living at home for the summer. My mom and dad are the best (I’ll miss them for way more than their food, trust me).

And, let’s be honest, I’ll miss my wraps. Love these, maybe a little too much.

I would also say I’ll miss my daily ice-cream (or drumstick cones!), but I have a feeling that Italian gelato might give it a run for it’s money. I can’t want to try the real deal.

I know Europe will be absolutely breathtaking, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t miss this.

I will undoubtedly miss home. Both of my homes.

Well, unfortunately that’s all I have time for today! Time to go pack til I drop nap.

I will see ya soon from Italy (if I can’t get on here sooner)! Eeek!

PS – As you know, there are a number of changes I want to make to this lil old blog of mine (becoming self-hosted, changing the title, etc).

That being said, leaving the US for a semester is a pretty big deal. Next week, I’ll likely have no internet yet, plus I’ll be very busy becoming accustomed, meeting new people, exploring my new home, getting ready for classes to begin, and having fun!

I hate to be repetitive here (and I apologize if you’re reading this for the second time), but as I said in my last post, I plan to document everything (food, fashion, ((prob not so much fitness, but maybe?)), and fun all over Europe!), so I hope you will come along for the ride. I’ll be sharing my adventures (plus outfits, eats, and all that good stuff) on here, as well as on Instagram!

So buckle up, sit tight, and join me on this journey, because it’s about to get a LOT more fabulous. 😉
