The Best Life


Hi lovepies! I hope you had the most marvelous weekend! Allow me to share mine…

Oprah is all about encouraging others to live their best life. There is “the good life,” which is a blast. But doesn’t the word “good” not seem good enough? That’s why I have to say that I have been living my best life this week. A monsoon of happiness washed over me this morning as I took a look around:

All my favorites.

By some serendipitous, cosmic act, we all ended up at Bob Evans this afternoon. Banana, Moose, Dirty Martini and I were sitting near the Bob’s entrance, and who walks in before we order? Muffin and PrinceDJ! I’ve wanted this to happen– all of us to be together–so badly all quarter that it finally happened. My wish came true. Now if only that could happen with that editing/writing/singing/modeling/acting dream job I so desperately want…

We spent two hours at Bob’s laughing, loving, chatting, procrastinating (on studying) and feasting:

Veggie omelet with hashbrowns.

Multi-grain pancakes, eggs, hashbrowns.

Muffin's food took up a whole serving tray.

Best two hours of my life.

And here’s a peek at the best few days of my life thus far:

Thursday night loving.

Emotional moment. There were tears.

Me and Luke! I was his editor 🙂

Trying to be modulls.

The REAL model.

Le sex.

'Fit shot to break up the bar shots. (Double entendre?)

Moose and Banana!

Maybe I was attacking Dirty Martini.

Much better. Minus my hurr.

Getting low. Thug life.

Love in this club. (Sorry Moose and Bananster, I had to!)

Someone broke part of my camera. 😦

I wish with all my heart that you all go out there and attack your life. Feast on it. Live it and love it. Can’t stop won’t stop (Rockafella records, cuz we get down). Create your best life. And, as always, just do tha damn thang.

The results will look something like this:

Ridiculously happy.

Ciao for now,


QUESTION: What are you loving about life right now? (I’m furreal! It’ll feel good to put it out there.)

  1. Awesome post! i am glad you are living your BEST life…and don’t worry, the dream job will happen eventually 🙂

    I am loving that summer will soon be here and I will have a cut in work hours which means, more time to live my best life! 😀

    You are so unbelievably gorgeous! The last few weeks of my sophomore year of college I have really been living it up! I started doing a lot of rock climbing and going out with friends on the weekends. I love mixing it up with going out and staying in (I played cards and watched Hercules with my roommate the other night). I have been so much happier as I have really gotten a grip and taken advantage of college finally.

  3. Awwww I’M SO HAPPY YOU’RE SO HAPPY!!!! And Muffin’s dress… um HOT! Want it.
    I’m loving life, period. It’s awesome.

  4. 4 Sana

    I just ate the BEST cupcake in the world. LIFE IS GOOD!

  5. Girl, I have to tell you that I have been LOVING how much you are LOVING your life recently!! Your posts always make me want to go throw on a fabulous outfit, hug my friends, drink some brews and have a spontaneous dance party.

    Right now I am loving the fact that I’m loving my nutrition internship so far. After twenty years of having no idea what I want to do with my life, I feel like I’m finally figuring out what I’m meant to do…I’m still unsure as to the exact career path I want to take, but I know for sure that I want to focus on health. It’s an amazing feeling!!

    Hope this week goes just as fabulously for you love!! xoxo

  6. I love your best life! My (long distance) boyfriend surprised me with a visit for my birthday! I’ve really been LOVING life these past few days with him! ❤

    Great idea. Here’s (some of) what I love about life right now:
    -Yoga! I have two great places where I love to take classes and FOUR favorite teachers. That’s a lot of great yoga.
    -Comfort in (and love for) my own skin.
    -My girls. I spend quite a bit time time with all ages of girls at the church my DH works for and I LOVE them.
    -Great, healthy, and satisfying food.
    -People who know me (REALLY know me!) and love me well.
    -The release that comes with writing.

    You’re right- that does feel good!

    What am I loving about life right now?
    – Sun-soaked mornings with a cuppa joe and an empty page ready to be filled with prose or poetry as the mood strikes
    – A good book in the heat of the afternoon, enjoyed with a a cup of fro-yo
    – A delicious yoga class at the calming studio
    – Music… by Lights, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Erin McCarley, and a little bit of Tiesto on the side (hah)

    I love how happy you are – it’s exactly how you should be feeling as you finish up a college education, surrounded by lovely people, and enjoying all of life’s wonderful opportunities. The universe IS on your side!

    My own summer has been off to a wonderful start, and I only seeing going up from here. More yoga, more girl’s nights out, more boys asking for my digits – if I want it to happen, it totally will!

  47. 60 Shelley (findinghappinessandhealth)

    this post makes me soooo happy!!! you seem like you are really enjoying the end of your senior year, and you definitely deserve to.. i love when things like the bob evans get together happen- spontaneous get togethers are usually the best kinds.

  50. I LOVE your (or Oprah’s?) philosophy on ‘the best life’. Amen sista! I really need to take more advantage of life! This weekend me and the boyf did take a 15 mile bike ride along the beach in Jersey and then dressed up and went out to eat. That felt like the best life (at least for this weekend lol)

  51. You are a great inspiration 🙂
    I love Bob’s and morning breakfasts with friends – THAT is defiantly living the best life.

  53. Aw SnackFeezy! I love seeing you this happy. Right now, I’m loving that I’ve got (at least) a teeny little part time job. The full time posish search continues, but I’m thankful for having SOMETHING!

  58. … Can you send Luke to Connecticut? I think I would be living the good life with him around.

    MY FRIENDS are making me happy, even though we are states apart right now 😦

    • 75 snackface

      Brynne- Hahaha, unfortunately, Luke will be in NYC this summer. But who knows about after that… 😉

  59. 76 Roxanne

    When did Dirty Martini come into the picture? I haven’t been in the blogosphere lately and totally missed out on this new addition to your life. Couldn’t be happier about it, really, but I’m just curious where this lovely guy came from! So happy you’re living the good life. 🙂

    • 77 snackface

      Roxanne- Great question! I’ve kept it as under wraps as possible (because who ever knows what’s going to happen), but I finally feel comfortable sharing more now. DM (Dirty Martini) entered the picture in April, but not the blog picture until recently.

  60. 78 Kerry
