Made this birthday "pupcake" for my pup on her birthday! Vegan and super simple so you don't have to worry about ingredients that might upset your pups stomach! The cake recipe was one I found on Pinterest made of oats and peanut butter. I whipped together a quick little icing made of pumpkin purée with a dash cinnamon and maple syrup. She loved it! 🐶❤️🎂
When you want comfort food but don't really eat junk... Open faced portabella "burger" with smashed peas, gf onion strings, sun dried tomatoes, & topped with roasted garlic hummus served on a slice of gf ancient grain toast. 💚🌱💚 #whatveganseat#veganfoodshare#vegansofig#xvx
Young Davey (and AFI)! He looks so different! Especially with the bleeched hair and the mohawk (which apparently, his mom let him get...or just accepted once he moved out😂). Also, it seems that red tattoo of the 3 straight edge X's was one of his first tattoos--which makes sense, I just never thought about it.
Also, just fun knowledge on the band around the time these photos were taken: after making music in high school as AFI (which stood for "Asking For It" before 1998), the band went their separate ways. They all went to college (not sure if Adam did though) and Davey, specifically, went to UC Berkely in northern California. However, After 2 years of college, Davey told his parents he was dropping out. That way, the band could get back together to make music. Mark and Geoff stayed in school, however, while the band reunited and released Answer That and Stay Fashionable. Shortly ater this album was released, Geoff left the band and Hunter replaced. They released Shut your mouth and open your eyes, and by the time Black Sails came out, Jade had replaced Mark. Now, through all this, I am more than grateful this band reunited back in '95 or so, because the music they've made has given me and many something to live for😊.
I'm use to spending hours at the gym but I have had to come to the realisation that I can't at this giving time. As a full time student, working 2 jobs plus managing bands and putting on shows, I simple don't have the time and it became a stressful affair for my body and mind. I go twice a week now, which is enough to keep me healthy and to maintain my mental health and in the end that is all that really matters.
I spent a lot of my twenties thinking there was a lot wrong with me and was constantly trying to fit a mold I felt others wanted me to squeeze into. There was a lot of negativity driven into my head by a lot of rough life experiences so I really had a hard time being myself for the longest time. I supported a lot of people but when I caught feelings it-- I-- became very inconvenient, even to those I helped! I started really working on myself last year, and life is so different now but the best part? Finally having a partner in life that loves me for who I am, how I am, and supports me in whatever I'm doing. I don't feel like we "put up with each other" or "accept" shit, we just love and support one another in everyway. I cannot express in words how valuable that is to me. How amazing it is to just be able to be me. No rules, no molds, no back handed "I'll put up with this bc you're my girlfriend" bullshit. If there is an issue, we talk. The moment we started talking I felt like I've known him for years...he busted through every emotional wall I built just by saying hello. We have a scary amount in common, both have zero filter, and are honest with each other. It's killing me being so far away from this man...but not for too much longer. I don't feel like an inconvenience for the first time in my life...and that's (and he) is worth every inch of the 1200 miles I'm going to travel to be with him. I love you Stephen. Thank you for all that you do, and for loving me the way you do. 💜💜💜 #mancrushmonday#mancrushalways#mcm#iloveyou#myheartisinflorida#bestfriend#myforevermore#babes#xxx#xvx#veggiecouple#stillsadilostmypics#sigh#SOON#soulmate#neversettle
New week and trying to get into better habits. Went to the gym earlier and did a small work out on the treadmill and the cycling machine. I'm glad I have rejoined as I weighed myself there and I'm now 11 stone and 7lbs! Last time I weighed myself I was about 10.3 so yeah, I've gained quite a lot since I've not been feeling so well. I also picked up this colon cleansing aloe vera juice to try and help my issues with mucus etc. I'm hoping that it'll help this huge bloated middle I've got now!
Here's to trying to get healthy, happy and using my last year of twenties to get into better habits and a good lifestyle.
