Now Trending – Best Links Week of 9.7
Photo credit: 1 / 2 / 3
This week marked two years of blogging for me and I didn’t even acknowledge it on the blog. I feel like that was a total missed opportunity. Happy second birthday, little blog. I never imagined what the next two years of my life would bring the night I sat down and wrote my first blog post. I’ve made some really amazing friends thanks to this blog, had the opportunity to travel and attend awesome events and so much more.
This week has been crazy busy with being in Pittsburgh, coming back to SF, blog events, dinners with friends and work and life in general. Here are the best links I scrapped up Thursday night for you.
I would like to think I’m pretty pro at flying. I’m (sadly) mainly loyal to one airline, can sleep most, if not all, of a red-eye and my carry-on is always overflowing with everything I could ever need. Do you have the same habits of savvy flyers?
I’ve had the post-vacation blues all week, even if my vacation was only Pittsburgh. Five days with my family and friends wasn’t nearly enough. Maybe I’ll make a quick getaway with one of these fall travel destinations.
I’ve learned everything I know about myself from traveling. Okay, maybe that is extreme, but I’ve learned a lot from traveling. The Kitchn team talks about what they’ve learned (food-wise) on their travels.
If you ever mention a movie, chances are I haven’t seen it. I don’t have the patience to sit still for two hours or to actually commit to a movie. Maybe I’ll actually watch one on Netflix with this website to help you find a movie that doesn’t suck.
What ethnicity do you drink like? According to this, I drink like a Bulgarian because I drink ~3 glasses of wine a week, the Chinese because I don’t drink milk or soda, an Equatorial Guinean because I don’t typically drink liquor, an Afghan because I don’t drink beer and an Eritrean because I don’t drink juice. Where does my 20 bottle of San Pellegrino a week land me?
Running and Fitness
Who wants to do this 30-day kettlebell challenge with me?
I need to get back on the strength training train (pun not intended). I was doing 15 minutes at least 3-4 times a week until this past week which isn’t a lot, but is an improvement on 0 minutes 7 days a week. Erin’s Bicep Burner Workout looks like a good way to get back into it.
Oh, just as I mention 15 minute core workouts… here’s a great one from Pumps and Iron.
These grain free naan are making me want to buy cassava flour like, right now.
The days are getting shorter… which means you can sleep in longer, right? Prep these make ahead breakfasts perfect for fall on the weekend and hit snooze without having to sacrifice breakfast.
Are State Fairs anything other than redneck, no matter what state you’re in? These state fair foods look like insanity and 5,000 calories each.
Um, so I want these paleo funnel cakes like right now.
In case you missed it…
Chat with me:
Which of those state fair foods look amazing to you? When was the last time you were at a state fair – and what did you eat? Any travel plans for fall?
