Broad Street Run and Cottage Cheese Quesadillas

Hello, hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. Mine was nothing out of the ordinary…class, work, study.

Today’s post is kind of all over the place, but I guess I have random things to share!

Okay, I know these are enough selfies for the rest of the year, but I finally got a haircut.


I ended up chopping off 12 inches to donate to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. I was originally going to donate it to Locks of Love, but after someone suggested doing some research on them, I decided against it. I read great things about Pantene Beautiful Lengths, so that’s who I ultimately decided to go with. I wasn’t too sad about losing a foot of hair the day I got it cut, but I’m starting to miss it more and more. I guess it’s just hair though, and hopefully, it will grow back in no time.

Secondly, I’m signing up for another race! The Broad Street Run is a 10 miler in Philadelphia on the day after my last final. I definitely told myself after the Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon that I’d probably never run a race again, but when a friend asked me if I wanted to do a race in Philly this spring/summer, I couldn’t stop myself from saying yes. Even though I am still not a fan of running, I think I’m addicted to the accomplished feeling after completing such a long run. I’m so excited to have something to look forward to immediately after this semester ends.

Yesterday, I discovered my new favorite meal. Quesadillas are one of my favorite foods. I didn’t have any cheese on hand, so I decided to use cottage cheese to make a turkey and spinach quesadilla. I honestly thought it couldn’t be that good because cottage cheese just isn’t the same as ooey gooey shredded cheese, but it was the


I’m not sure I can convince anyone to try this, but you should just do it. It will blow your mind. Don’t forget the salsa!

I’m off to study a little more before calling it a night.

Question of the day:
Do you celebrate Easter? Did you do anything fun for it this past weekend?

  1. Is that the Ezekiel tortilla? So happy about the treats we got from Whole Foods. How was the salmon?

    • Yes, it’s the Ezekiel tortilla. So delicious! Can’t wait to go to Whole Foods again the next time you come :) The salmon was really, really good. Very meaty!

    • Thanks girl! I used to hate cottage cheese too, but I realized I just can’t eat it plain. You should definitely try the quesadilla..I think you’re the only other person who’d like it as much as I do haha!

  2. Love your hair! Makes you look so much more grown up ;) And I need that shirt!

    I started putting cottage cheese in my spaghetti squash “spaghetti” – never thought it would go, but super yum!

    Stoked about your upcoming run! :) And love how you’re still in denial like me ;)

    • Thank you! I guess I should look a little more professional now that I’m not a baby anymore.. You should definitely get that shirt. It’s SO comfy. I’m thinking about buying another in a different color.

      Cottage cheese in spaghetti squash is such a great idea! I love “creamy” pasta, so I definitely want to try that as soon as I can get my hands on another spaghetti squash!

  3. I can’t believe how long your hair was!! That must have been a royal pain in the ass to wash/dry/style/carry. The no ‘do looks great though! I saw the quesadilla on instagram and I love the idea of using cottage cheese! I might have to try that myself, maybe with pizza?

    • It was such a hair would always get stuck in my armpits hahaha so awkward! Luckily, I have no one to impress around here, so I never did anything with it after I got out of the shower. I am stealing your pizza idea. I don’t have any dough (although I guess I could use a tortilla), but I will make that tomorrow with English pizzas!!

  4. I love that you donated your hair :) I’ve always wanted to do that.
    I also think every runner goes through a time when they say they’ll never run a race again and then always end up signing up for another one :) We’re crazy like that!
