Randoms & Happy Weekend

Why hello there, Friday! SO nice to see you.

I know I'm 26 years old, but does that mean I can't buy myself a new lunchbox at back-to-school time? Never mind that I'm not a student or anything...

Cute, right? Found it for $16 at HomeGoods, my favorite place. It comes with two nice pieces of tupperware inside, too. I bring my lunch to work so I feel like I can justify buying a lunchbox!

I'm back on my health kick now that we're done with our summer travels, and my new favorite thing is the MyFitnessPal app. It helps you count your calories and track your calories burn vs. calorie intake. It's fascinating to input my foods and see just how many calories I'm eating. You can input your stats and your weight loss goal and the app will help you figure out how many calories you need each day. I find it very empowering! It's free and can be downloaded through the iPhone app store.

Speaking of food, I tried two new Pinterest recipes this week. Both recipes are healthy and delicious, so you should try them!

Overnight Oats via Lauren Conrad's website
My review: easy, tasty, refreshing, filling

Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets via Skinny Taste
My review: easy, flavorful, YUM, perfect for when you're totally sick of grilled chicken

Reese Witherspoon lives in Kathy Ireland's former ranch, and it is TO. DIE. FOR. It's completely overloaded with charm and personality. Cote de Texas had a great post analyzing the difference between the Reese's and Kathy's decor. I'll be honest, I love it both ways. You should definitely check it out! Reese's home was featured in Elle Decor, so check that slideshow out here.

Speaking of celebrity homes, my favorite Design Star Emily Henderson wrote a great post about celebrities who have great decorating style (Ellen Degeneres, Julianne Moore, Ben Stiller, etc.) Must read!

I'm new to the Twitter thing, but it's so much fun! Follow me at @happyhomebodies!

Have a wonderful weekend!
