Quote of the Day

I was running today and saw this quote.

Bacardio.

I love it.

I could use a little Barcardio myself tonight, actually.

Coconut Water Champagne Fruit Punch with a little wine rather than champagne could be nice.

Or really, just a shot of this will do.

You know, the hard stuff, coffee.

I have tons of photos to edit, emails to catch up on, and have a late night at my desk planned.

Complete with midnight snackage in the form of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites. I always have a rainy day stash in the freezer.

The winners of the Puff Pastry at Brunch Cookbook Giveaway are:

Veronica @ Café con Leche

Claire @ Live and Love to Eat

Do you have any favorite quotes?

I have a hard time recalling quotes on command so unfortunately, or fortunately, Bacardio is all I’ve got for you.

However, Pinterest is quote central from deep thoughts to the hilarious. If you’re in need of quotes, or 239879 recipes for chocolate chip cookies, you know where to find them.

I hope your week is off to a great start and a delicious post is coming up next.

    Oh, Bacardio is great to start my week too! Yes, before I came here, my favorite quote was “Do something!” :)

    I don’t have any particular favourite quotes. I just get most of them from pinterest, and never remember what they say. But I definitely love the quote you posted. That is just awesome. I could use a little wine tonight too actually ;)

    I’m the same way- I never remember quotes, but I do love reading them. Inspirational quotes always give me a little pep me up of inspiration, and make life feel a little brighter. I suppose not remembering quotes means we can benefit from the spark each time we read them?! ;)

    Looking forward to the delicious post! :)

    The quote I remember is:
    “A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water.”
    ― Eleanor Roosevelt

    I started off my high school forensics and academic decathlon speech with that quote. (I know, nerd squad, but I enjoyed the experiences!)

    The Serenity Prayer is actually one that I do remember but didn’t want to cheapen it by putting it in the same post as…Bacardio. Lol :)

    Bacardio, omg…I love it.
    I have a few favorite quotes. One is:
    “Tell me what a man finds sexually attractive and I will tell you his entire philosophy of life. Show me the woman he sleeps with and I will tell you his valuation of himself.” –Ayn Rand
    Sooo true. :P

    I am horrible at recalling quotes off the top of my head, but I heard this one just yesterday so I still remember it! “Do something today that your future self will thank you for.”

    I have soooo many favourite quotes – a whole board on Pinterest dedicated to them haha. My ultimate favourite life motto though is “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” It’s a sports quote but it applies to absolutely everything I think! xx

    My favorite quote during grad school is “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit” (Aristotle). On a lighter note, my father would say “a wise general knows when to retreat”.

    I know a fab quote, it goes something like this…

    “I am on this new diet. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want, and as much as you want. You don’t loose any weight but it’s pretty easy to stick to.”

    Thought it was hilarious! xD
