Are y’all ready for this? You read that right, I’ve gone back to my southern roots for this week’s obsessions. Git along, little dogies.
- Bible App: Easter was 60 days ago, and I know this because that’s the day I committed to a 60-day New Testament reading plan with my Bible app. I love that I get my spiritual fill in 10–15 minutes a day, and you can make fun images out of verses you enjoy.
- Nashville: What do you do when you’re feeling sorry for yourself after neglecting to make Memorial Day plans? Tack yourself onto a girls’ trip to Nashville and book your flight six days in advance. Crazy, but true. Can’t wait to kick up my boots with some of my fave gal pals, even if the ABC show was canceled mercilessly.
- Trick Dog: This bar has an obnoxious menu, and I admittedly wasn’t crazy-impressed during my first visit in February. But a friend and I stumbled upon it last weekend, and I absolutely enjoyed our experience. The steak tartare, “manimal” fries and Loch Ness “Monster” are all must-tries.
- Chewbacca Mom’s Carpool: I’m sure you’ve seen the Chewbacca Mom video, which is officially the most-watched Facebook Live post ever. Candace’s laugh is contagious, and her simple mantra to enjoy the simple things is exactly what we all need to heed. Enjoy her follow-up video, courtesy of cult hit “Carpool Karaoke.”
It’s Ash Wednesday, which is pretty exciting for this vice-ridden lady. I actually enjoy this yearly challenge to make a sacrifice — akin to Jesus dying for our sins — and blast it all over the Internet. So let’s get to it!
- Bye-Bye, Seamless: My wallet (and waistline) will definitely thank me after giving up this food-delivery service. I may or may not have shed a tear when I deleted the app, but I already know it’s the right move to make.
- Hi There, AdvoCare: In addition to a yearly sacrifice, I try to start doing something new. This time, it’s a cleanse system to help me get reenergized and handle the daily stress that seems to just bring me down.
- See Ya, Self-Loathing: If you couldn’t tell, I’m trying to focus on health and wellness goals I’ve neglected for … ever? This includes my aggravation with the scale, and instead focusing on the victories I achieve.
- Hello Again, Church: I haven’t been to mass regularly for some time, so it’s only fitting I recommit to my faith and get that weekly dose of wine. I’m looking forward to reestablishing this positive routine.
That was as cathartic as confession — hope all my fellow Lenten lovelies are just as motivated and cleansed!
