Three Things Thursday is officially legal here on MIS.  Get it?  21.  No?  I know I’m a dork, it’s ok!

Moving on…

This has been a fairly full week.  My parents left on Monday, work is just the right kind of busy (as opposed to the “I want to pull my hair out” kind of busy), Vishnu’s new rotation is off and running (he only has to work three 12 hour shifts this week…win!), and our friend Rohit is coming in to town this weekend.  Enough stuff to keep me just one step behind!

Well, since I didn’t share a Three Things Thursday post for the last two weeks, I thought I’d jump back in with three random new-to-me things.

3 Things Thursday

(1) Snapchat

Snapchat - parpat23

I am [back] on Snapchat!  I originally joined earlier this year, and then deleted the app from my phone because I honestly didn’t get it.  Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat…it was all a bit overwhelming!  But then when I was in Chicago last week, my friends Ankita and Rena convinced me that it’s easy to use and really fun.  So I’m giving it another chance!

My username is parpat23, so feel free to add me if you want.  I’m still learning how the whole thing works, so my snaps may be a bit sporadic right now!

(2) A new ab routine

[via The Live Fit Girls]

This short little ab routine is the perfect add on to any workout.  The whole point is to flow from one move to the next with little to no rest in between.  It looks simple enough, but when completed after a run or intense strength workout, you feel the burn.  And when I’m feeling extra crazy, I pair this with a little plank tabata! 

(3) TJ’s Frozen Cheese & Green Chile Tamales

TJs Cheese and Green Chile Tamales

While shopping at Trader Joe’s a couple of weeks ago, I happened to be looking at the non-frozen tamales when a fellow shopper told me about the frozen ones.  She said that both are good, but the frozen ones are the BEST!  I took her word for it and brought a pack of the Cheese & Green Chile kind home with me.  You guys.  These bad boys, while not super healthy, are super delicious!  The corn masa is soft and the filling is slightly spicy from the chilies and gooey from the cheese.  A must try TJs item in my opinion!

That’s all I have for this week.  Thanks for reading!

If you’re a blogger, write a post and link back to one or all of the hostesses: Raj from Pink Chai Living, Nisha from Love Laugh Mirch, or Salma from The Write Balance. Then share a link to your post (not your blog’s home page).

Are you on Snapchat?  If so, let’s be friends!

  1. Thanks for sharing the ab routine! I’ve been in the market searching for something new but too lazy to look some up on my own. I always know a Par’s Pick is a good pick <3
