Enrique Iglesias – Bailando (Spanish Version)

So, I’ve never been a huge Enrique fan but have recently become a HUGE fan of this song and video.  There are two versions of it and I believe my preference goes to the Spanish version even though Sean Paul is in the English one (and I love Sean Paul)!  One of my favorite parts is how they incorporate soccer into dancing!

Let me know which version you like better!

Bossypants

BossypantsLoved this book.  Was surprised at how much was related to women in the workplace and thought it had great advice.  Also, enjoyed reading about her days at Second City, living in Chicago, and being on SNL.  Would definitely recommend.  Go Tina Fey!

Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard

HullabalooJust finished reading this book.  It’s about a boy in India who tries to escape from society runs off to sit in a tree– only to find there is no escaping.  A funny book with great writing.  by Anita Desai.  Also, love the word “hullabaloo”.  Would definitely recommend.

The Help

The HelpI loved this book.  It took me a little while to get into it, but once I did, wanted to keep reading.  Had so many great underlying themes regarding race, gender, social class, friendships, abuse, politics, and decision making.  And told with a great sense of humor and hope.  Think Minnie was my favorite character.  Also, made me start fantasizing about writing a book and how great of a career that would be.  Debating whether I should watch the movie as I don’t want it to take away from the book.

Nachos in Wrigleyville

I don’t like to write bad reviews, but these nachos from Casey Moran’s were utterly disappointing.  Had gone to his bar after an exciting Cubs game and was looking forward to a nice nacho meal.  The chicken was cold, the cheese not evenly distributed and also not warm, and as you can tell from the pic, the toppings were all lumped in one section of the nachos.  The topping choice was also poor with cheap black olives (ugh), smooshy tomatoes and jalapenos, not great guac, and bad salsa.  Sour cream was unnecessary and could have used some refried beans.  Perhaps adding the salsa throughout the nachos would have made them less dry.  Sorry Casey Moran’s, but I wouldn’t get nachos from here again and give this a 0 out of 5.

Blueberries and Ginger

blueberriesGingerMy doctor recently told me blueberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels and to try to eat a handful a day!  I’ve also been hearing ginger is really good for you!  I’ve been incorporating both in my daily spinach/kale, pineapple, and mint smoothies– and it is delicious!  Have also been trying to put in flax seeds, but I’m not as big of a fan of it.
