Oh hi end of January, that was fast!

On one hand I love the fresh start of a new year, but on the other hand, I am not good with change. I feel this need to be super organized, have better and more goals and have everything in order. Which I don't. I would like to keep some good habits I made in 2017 like exercising regularly and making my bed, and try to let some bad ones go like always being on an empty gas tank (literally not figuratively) and being impatient with my boys.....Ok I mean really just fill up your gas tank Cassie! Why does it need to be 20 miles past "0 miles to go" for you to do something about it?> How about at a half tank you think to yourself "Oh boy, oh gee I should really fill up" Don't wait for the next time you go to Costco, it saves you like $3 just fill the freaking tank up. So there are my ambitious 2018 goals.

So far in 2018 I need two root canals, our car needs new tires and Arie is the bachelor...woof! Can only go up from here!

WOMP WOMP Downer, Sorry. 2018 has also had some great moments so far too. I co-hosted a really fun baby shower for my best friend, we are planning a Disney trip with my parents and the boys talk about it every single day.  We had a fun weekend trip to St. George with family and ....Have you guys heard of this movie The Greatest Showman? hahaha JK. Everyone is triple OBSESSED, as am I. The song "Rewrite The Stars" plays in my dreams. My brother is the only human on the planet who did not like it, it's really driving us apart. He obviously has deep seeded issues and needs help.  I also chopped off like 5 inches of hair and surprisingly haven't even cried about it once! Eat your heart out two thousand and eighteen!

++Speaking of fresh starts, I really want this Golden Coil planner! They were a Kickstarter and a local company and you can customize them and start at any date which means you don't feel guilty for not having it yet and wasting January. You can customize the cover, layout of each day/week and pick if you want extra planning sheets like fitness trackers, meal planning etc. I feel like new planners are to organizing like new workout clothes are to motivation.

++ "I like girls who wear Abercrombie and Fitch, I'd take her if I had one wish..." Well Mr. LFO, I am your girl, because I like Abercrombie and Fitch again.  Someone on the internet told me it was cool again and I believe most of what people tell me on the internet ;), I am actually loving a lot of their stuff.  They toned down their cologne diffusers and mega logos on everything and have really comfortable, cute clothes.  HAHA, I begged for those horrible obnoxious t-shirts in Jr. High. I actually ordered some off eBay from China in grade 8 and they were so tiny and small for infants basically, but I squeezed into them anyway because ABERCROMBIE was hugely sprawled across it. Yikes  ANYWAYS! I got this sherpa forest green jacket (70$ off right now)  and this half-zip pullover for Christmas and have been wearing them nonstop. I also got this extremely comfortable waffle tee for my birthday and their Simone high waisted jeans are so comfortable and flattering (they have great sales, don't buy anything full price). I also love this jacket and this jacket and this shirt and this other half zip. ALSO sign up to become and A&F insider and you get $20 off your first purchase of $50 (including clearance stuff)

++Ok so this is going to sound pathetic. I need to preface with the fact that I love to read, but I also will admit without shame I love TV.  I also need more friends. I have this idea I want to start a TV club, you know like a book club, except we get together, eat good food and talk about our favorite TV shows and that month's episodes and characters. Can you imagine the TV club meeting after the Grey's episode that shall not be named? (I haven't watched an episode since btw, no matter how many people told me too, boycotting Shonda Rhimes forever and Mer and Der are living happily ever after in my brain).

++So the other day I was out with some girlfriends for dinner and Ben was watching the kids. I got home after everyone was asleep. In the morning I asked Everett what they had for dinner the night before, he said "We had chicken nuggets, and dad had a toaster strudel......and then someone delivered Mcdonalds later" Wait what? Who in the world delivered Mcdonalds and what 30 year old man has a toaster strudel for dinner?! Well leave it to Ben to find out that UberEats is now in Provo! Mcdonalds is the only option on there, which is all Ben would want anyway. (They now have added 2 more places since). I can't judge really, I've used it myself as well since the discovery. Ba-da-ba-ba-ba I'm lovin it. Use my code for free delivery for your first time if you just really need an Oreo Mcflurry but just can't leave the house.

++Saw the movie "Forever My Girl" last night with my cousins. It was amazing. I mean, it wasn't "good" like Meryl Streep "good" you know? But it was happy and bad acting and Nicholas Sparks-esque and made me like country music for like 2 hours. A perfect girls night movie.

++I've been trying to eat healthy for like 8 months now. I'm not a person who has disillusioned themselves that healthy food actually tastes good. You know those people who are like "It's ice cream made from avocados and I really can't even taste the difference" YOU ARE LYING TO YOURSELF. Healthy food will always try hard, but never win. BUUUUTTT with that said, here are a few recipes I have tried that are good for being "healthy". This cauliflower crust pizza crust  (I use those pre-cut cauliflower steamer bags for it) and then put bbq sauce, chicken, red onion and cilantro on it. Also, these whole 30 lettuce wraps were really good (I used regular soy sauce instead of coconut aminos because who has that just laying around)  and my other favorite is spaghetti squash with chicken, pesto, and parmesan, I can kinda trick myself I'm eating pasta for like 4 seconds.

++These posts by Mari Andrew on Cup of Jo every Friday are my favorite. Especially this one a few weeks ago called "Lovely Nameless Feelings"

Anyways, I feel like all my posts could alternately be titled "completely random crap and thoughts" but there you go! Happy FRIDAY, may you all Ubereats Mcdonalds to yourself and go watch The Greatest Showman for the 6th time!
