Hey, Ambitious Fam! I had every intention of putting this post up on Friday, but life didn’t exactly go as planned in the afternoon. So here is my Friday Feels post…but on a Monday.
Today was the perfect way to end the work week. I started my day with an amazing spin class. Caught up with a friend and her cute pup as I waited for my Friday smoothie place to open. Then I was even able to squeeze in a blow out before work.
Here are five things that gave me all the feels this [past] week:
I made nut-free macarons (with the help of some bake-savvy friends) and they turned out AMAZINGLY! The key ingredient? Sunflour! I bought this Sunflour on Amazon a couple of days before our macaron party and it was incredibly easy to work with. The bag even states that it has a decent amount of protein and can be used as a 100% substitute for nut flours (like the almond flour typically used in macarons). I recommend this flour for anyone who needs a nut allergy substitute or just wants to decrease their white flour intake (can substitute half flour for half sunflour). Happy baking!
Chasing Happiness…Happiness Begins
Speaking of happiness, there is more news on the Jonas Brothers front. I know that you guys pretend that I am the only person interested in their return…but I’m going to keep following my bliss and sharing their news anyway :P. The JoBros announced that their documentary, Chasing Happiness, will be available for streaming on Prime Video on June 4th. The documentary promises to go more into detail about the band’s breakup, the fall out that the family experienced. Should be interesting to finally hear the story from them! Tickets for the Jonas Brothers concert tour, Happiness Begins (also the name of their upcoming album), also went on sale this week and boy did it have me stressed. Stay tuned to completely revert back to pubescent Cierra, screaming in the stands.
I read a post on Facebook this week that really got me in my feels. Friendship can be a tricky thing to navigate, no matter what stage of life you are in. It’s hard to watch a loved one go through something that has once hurt you as well. Heck, it’s hard to see a little one go through something hard in general because you just want to protect them from the experience. I’m sharing this post for anyone who needs it.
Spider-Man Far From Home Trailer
If you haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame yet, then DO NOT WATCH THIS TRAILER. There is a major spoiler in it. However, if you are one of the millions of people who have seen the movie, check out this trailer for the next MCU installment. I still haven’t fully accepted the current state of the MCU, but I am interested in seeing how it will move forward. Tickets are already on sale for the movie and I am already excited to see how Tom Holland continues his portrayal of Spider-Man.
Cute Reusable Straws!
My sweet friend shared these reusable straws with me and I thought that they were the cutest thing! I knew that I had to order them. Not only does the pack come with 10 reusable straws, but it also comes with 4 carrying cases so that it’s easier to make sure that you have one with you at all times! Check them out here.
