Marvelous Is…

Oh Monday…the only thing going for you this go around is that spring break starts this week. I guess that makes you marvelous?


Thanks, as always, for the link-up, Katie!

Marvelous is… spreading some KINDness on campus. I worked an event last week called the Orange Festival, celebrating the history of U Miami. Even though we aren’t orange-colored or flavored, KIND was there to support!

Marvelous is… a free SoulCycle class. I mentioned it yesterday but Her Campus hosted a free SoulCycle class for all members at the new Coral Gables location. I’m glad I got to go again because I’m now pretty firm in my opinions on the phenomenon. I will always give them credit for awesome music.

Marvelous is… snail mail. I received a few Valentine’s Day cards this week that were held up due to snow in New England. I prefer receiving/sending mail on non-holidays because it adds a surprise. And my Nana helped pay for my not so marvelous parking ticket from last week #oops.

Not so marvelous is… the weather getting hotter. I think I’m in the extreme minority when I say that I wish the weather stayed like it is now. Sunny, 75 and NOT humid. Oh well, it’s a price I’m willing to pay for almost year round sun.

Marvelous is... making career moves. Or potential career moves. I’ve been feeling pretty grown up for my ripe age of 20 lately.

Not so marvelous is… cover letter writing. Enough said.

Marvelous is... good, simple dinners. I think I’ve nailed the chicken or salmon and sweet potato dinner. I make it enough, right? ;) Looking forward to my mom’s cooking this week!


Marvelous is… the dress being declared BLACK AND BLUE. Sorry, I had to include it.

What color did you see? Black and blue, no question.

What was your favorite meal from the weekend?

    I have a parking ticket to pay too. Can those things just go away?!
    Your dinners look absolutely delicious! You’re more than welcome to come up to freezing cold New York and cook for me any time :)

      The ticket was completely my fault but I was tempted to fight it because I was annoyed haha. How about you take a vacation to FL and I cook here?!

  2. Brie @ Lean, Clean, & Brie says

    Haha I totally saw the dress as gold and white, but my friend saw it as black and blue when she showed it to me. So crazy! Hope you have as good of a week as you can before spring break!!

    Your simple chicken & sweet potato & veggie dinners look awesome! I didn’t have a chance to go to the store last weekend so I don’t have any sweet potatoes, but I’m seriously craving them now!

    Career moves! How exciting! : ) And oh man, free Soul Cycle?! That’s pretty awesome!

  6. Rebecca @ MyEagerFeet says

    I’m with you on the weather! People always think I’m crazy when I say I don’t want it to get into the 80’s, but the 70’s are just so comfortable for being outside. It probably makes me a terrible person, but I just don’t apply for jobs that require cover letters. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

      Sunny and 75 is the perfect weather to me. Haha I was like that with a lot of colleges. If they required extra essays I didn’t apply. Oops!

    Look at those delicious looking combos – right up my alley! :) I’m currently post-grad but oh my gosh cover letter writing is STILL something I never look forward to, haha! So happy to hear someone else who love snail mail – they’re the best! Will have to send you some sometime!
