¡Buenas noches, rubias! How are we all doing tonight? I’m really, really wonderful, probably because I just ate my favorite things for dinner (couscous, pisto, and Moroccan chicken) followed by a lil’ dark chocolate. All good for the soul. Are you wondering why I refer to you as a rubia? Please, allow me to explain. I stop at a fruteria every morning before class to pick up a pink lady apple. The supreme apple. The woman who works there always calls me rubia, which confused me because rubio means ‘blond’ in spanish. You understand my confusion, as I have curly brunette hair. I asked my host mom why I’m suddenly a rubia, and she explained that rubia is a term of endearment in Spain. Like ‘honey.’ So that’s that.
Let’s get on with the good stuff. I’m heading to Extremadura this weekend for some culture and hiking and running and fun. WOO. Like the good mommy I am, I’m leaving my babies with a few fun links to drool over in the coming days. Enjoy, my rubias!
This amazing video about the Boston Marathon that gave me goosebumps. I have mixed feelings about not being in Boston this year; while I want to be there to represent for my city, I also know that security will be TIIIIGHT and probably overwhelmingly so. That being said, I think I’d rather be there than not. I’ll be cheering on all the runners from here in Spain and hopefully will be one of them next year! #bostonmarathon2015 #badknees #help
78 Thoughts Beyoncé Has Every Day. I nearly died laughing. Hey B, I love you.
Banana blondies with chocolate peanut butter ganache. Let that sink in, people.
And double chocolate banana bread. BOOM. Double trouble.
To balance all of that chocolate goodness, here’s an avocado sandwich with green harissa.
Salsa verde chicken and black bean burritos. BRB dying.
I need one of these rings. Need. Now. Or like, eventually. Thinking of getting one with the coordinates of Sevilla! How cute, right? Right. **Hey Mom and Dad, my birthday is in 6 days, I like silver, I’m turning 21 so this birthday is important**
This green soup with lemon and cayenne might be too healthy even for me. See, Spain is changing me. I’d probably add cheese because obviously.
As you all know, I’m JT’s #1 fan. Here’s a list of things you never knew about Justin Timberlake. I think it’s missing the one about us getting married in 5 years. I should really contact Buzzfeed about that…
Fiiiiinally, I leave you with these. 5 things that men do that women openly hate. #4. I’M SINGLE BECAUSE NO ONE LOVES ME. DON’T ASK AGAIN. Also, 8 jobs that former babysitters are perfectly qualified for. Let me know when you want to talk, CIA.
