My Five Things (TAG)

I was puzzled over what to blog about this week (motivation and inspiration are running near empty, folks), but then I saw that Rebecca from Rebecca Goes Rendezvous posted a “My Five Things” post and thought it would be fun to partake! I read that this post was inspired by #MILLENNIALLIFECRISIS (I’d never heard of this blog, but it looks like she has some pretty cool content!), so my adaption to this post is a mix between both their style of posts. Please enjoy!


Five Things That Have Been Getting Me Through Quarantine

  1. Jesus – I’ll be the first to admit there is no way I’d be handling the chaos and uncertainty of this time with any inkling of peace without Him. Thanks, God!
  2. Yoga with Adriene – I. Am. OBSESSED. With. This. Woman. I love her style and attitude about the practice, and her series are challenging but not impossible.
  3. Puzzles – We have become quite the stereotypical puzzle family during the quarantine and I’m not mad about it.
  4. Netflix – Let me just say I’m thankful my goal wasn’t to limit Netflix in 2020 like it was in 2019.
  5. The ability to create my own schedule – I am very thankful for the smaller, part-time jobs I’ve been able to keep over these last three months because they allow me to create my own schedule and essentially work when it’s convenient/I feel like it. I know I am going to miss this flexibility when I am eventually employed in a full-time, 9-5 position.

Four Blogs That Are Worth Checking Out
(It’s supposed to be five, but I simply don’t follow that many blogs, tbh)

  1. Simply Taralynn – A lifestyle blogger I have followed since her days on Tumblr
  2. Rebecca Goes Rendezvous – I actually don’t follow that many active blogs on WordPress, but I’ve followed Rebecca since my pre-TAPIF departure and she remains a favorite years later
  3. Croissants & Conjugations – I am obsessed with Jessica and her blog. She constantly has me dreaming of la vie française.
  4. La Cuisine de Pauline – There’s no way I could write this post without giving the blog of my beautiful belle-sœur a shout-out 🙂 je t’aime !

Five YouTube Channels That I Enjoy Watching

  1. Man + River – This is probably the most bizarre YouTube channel that I am, for some reason, strangely obsessed with. He (Dallas) is a free diver/scuba driver who, with the help of his trusty metal detector, looks for treasures (for lack of a better word) in lakes, oceans, rivers, etc. Don’t knock it till you watch it.
  2. The Financial Diet – Chelsea is amazing and I have learned so much about personal finances from TFD.
  3. Cut – My guilty pleasure. If I’m in the mood for funny/potentially mindless YouTube, this is my go-to
  4. Michelle Reed – I love her content! As a woman of God, I think she brings something special to her YouTube content as she explores post-grad, young adulthood life
  5. Brooke Miccio – I started following her when she was a “college vlogger”, but I just love her realness and relatability, so her content is definitely a go-to for me.

Five Podcasts I Love

  1. The Daily
  2. Pretty Basic
  3. The Next Right Thing
  4. Gals on the Go
  5. What We Said

Honorable mentions include Thick & Thin, Happy Hour, Clever Girls Know, The Health Code, and But What’s Next…I really love podcasts 🙂

Five Foods That I Love (Quarantine Edition)

  1. Grapes & Goldfish – I’m not really sure what inspired me to eat these together one day, but this combo is my new strange obsession
  2. Peanut butter & banana roll-ups – This is probably the most White, American thing I could ever eat, but mashed banana and peanut butter spread on a tortilla, rolled up like a burrito…***chef’s kisses***
  3. Apples – Always a favorite
  4. Veggies with homemade ranch dressing – Normally, I despise ranch dressing, but my sister recently made a homemade version and my mind has been forever changed
  5. Egg Taco – Honestly, this is a creation I found on TikTok (don’t judge), and it is absolute fire.

Until next time,

Michaela

  1. Grapes and Goldfish?! That’s such a strange combination, but it’s cool that you like them! Thanks for the shout-out, and I do hope you can visit Prague when it’s safe to travel again; you won’t regret it!

    1. It truly is bizarre (trust me, I know it sounds wild), but it is like having wine with a cheese board, only simplified! I hear Prague is amazing, so I’m excited to visit one day!
