My life is a tangent

It has been a hectic week! I have been trying to study/clean/pack/help my friend pack/cook/workout/consult/work on grad apps/attempt to read articles/relax all week! So tonight’s post which is supa dupa late is also supa dupa tangential!

I figured my GRE problems out and will now be doing private tutoring ( I know you were all losing sleep over that one). All the other school related stuff is taking a back seat for now because I want to simply focus on the GRE.. and then I can finish with everything else!

My friend is leaving next week, well I am leaving with him  to go to Atlanta… but only I am coming back! He is moving home… so I have been helping him pack up his life which is both hilarious and sad at the same time… also frustrating because man some boys are messsyyyy!! And those of you who know me/have seen my closet/room know for me to say that is A LOT because well I have been known to have half my sizeable closet strewn all over the floor in both the walk-in closet and my room… TORNADO… but my goal for this summer is to keep that mess at bay by you know actually hanging stuff up and not just stepping out of it… and leaving it there on my closet floor. I am going away this weekend (BOSTON BABY) and so my friend is staying at my place in my absence  so I have been cleaning/making food that was in his cabinets that he can’t cook/food in my freezer that needed to be put to use for him this weekend!

This weekend starts my two weekend in a row wedding spree… yay! This weekend it is my friend Jen from college! Jen is kind of like my idol… she double majored in Theater (at Tisch which is knid of a big deal) and Pre-Med… and is now in medical school! She and her fiance took a year off and lived in Paris for a year where he proposed! So cute I know.. basically she is the coolest, sweetest, most down to earth girl ever and I am honored and so excited to be going to her wedding!!! My big from my sorority and another ss is in the wedding! Woo for good times with old friends!

yea.. Junior year Halloween.. she was Mystique…. SO COOL! and I was a nerd… win

Also week 2 of Paleo… Pretty good thus far!! Yesterday we went to Cherry Cricket for one of my friends last nights (PEOPLE STOP LEAVING ME) If you live in Denver… GO to the Cricket BEST BURGER!!! I inhaled mine.. sans bun of course because I was STARVING!!! I had a Cricket Burger with Lettuce Tomato and Avocado! Afterwards we went for froyo and I got non dairy pink lemonade.. yea yea the sugars.. whatever I am human and really I got more fruit than yogurt anyways… Yogurt guru had freshly sliced strawberries… not the gooey chunks a lot of places have and huge chunks of Kiwi… I was sold! Afterwards my friend and I went to see Transformers!! In IMAX.. so good… only he lost his wallet mysteriously so the movie was kind of ruined for him…. but I loved it!

I have also been living off of smoothie bowls!! Like I should change my name to Eat, Drink, and be Smoothie… because I have been having a BIG one for breakfast and a small teeny baby one for dessert! I am not a huge banana person so smoothies are a good way for me to sneak them into my diet!

Tonight I had surprise surprise grilled salmon, grilled veggies and a salad! But I ate the salad before the grilled stuff was done due to the fact that I hate waiting… and was hungry! Winner Winner Salmon Dinner! I may turn into a fish soon… It’s fine

In other news today I was reading Courtney’s blog and she answered some questions that I decided I wanted to answer on here! So here goes!
Favorite Cartoon Character: That’s a tough one! Probably Eliza Thornberry! I loved that show… and my Junior year of College we had an old school Nickelodeon mixer where my friends and I went as the Wild Thornberries…. it is a little scary how much I looked like her…..

Favorite Book: Harry Potter, or Shopaholic.. both which were made into movies that I am ehh about.. although I do like the HP movies far better than the ridiculous sham that was Shopaholic… she wasn’t even British!!!!
Favorite Clothes: Nautical themed anything… or Lilly Dresses… are you even surprised that it is something nautical??? Of course not

yes… this picture ACTUALLY happened… and no I am not drunk… I am just that much of a ridiculous human being.. and yes I did wear goggles… not for that long… but they were on…

Favorite Flowers: Snap Dragons …. I used to always make my parents plant them!

Favorite Movie: Pride and Prejudice.. one I love Kiera Knightly even if she is too skinny.. and it is my favorite love story… and Darcy is HOT… and yea I love period films

Favorite Food to Cook: hmmm probably grilled salmon and veggies!
Favorite Breakfast: Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Waffles and eggs.. in HS to raise money for the yearly trip to Namibia, Africa the current group would sell these bomb waffles during lunch… and then you top them with more sugar.. That was always my lunch on Wednesdays along with a cherry coke… until I kicked that habit! I want to recreate those waffles sometime.. but healthier
Favorite Workout: Yoga Sculpt and Spinning… I LOVE spinning.. I don’t do it as much anymore but in NYC I did it once or twice a day! Especially once I found SoulCycle and FlyWheel! If you live in NYC… go to these studios… it is worth the price! Also if you read this blog at all you know I can;t live without my yoga sculpt.. every day it pushes me to new limits and reminds me of muscles I didn’t know I had! I can honestly say that on almost a year of doing it I think I have maybe had one mediocre class!
Favorite Thing to Photograph: My friends and family… these people are ridiculous in the best possible way… how can I capture every moment of that?


yea need I say more on that? These people make my life worth living.. soooo they are my favorite thing to photograph!! Smile pretty kids!!!

Ok… now I am off to bed! hope you enjoyed the `1234567890009876543 pictures I have shared with you!

It’s your turn to answer the questions now!! Or just tell me fun facts about your life sil vous plait!


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!


The Future is coming on

Can any one guess that lyric? Yea its from Clint Eastwood by the Gorillaz… one of my faves

As you can tell I am thinking about the future… and by thinking about I mean having about 100 panic attacks a minute… awesome

These panic attacks which made me almost burst into tears on my walk home from Yoga Sculpt today are brought on by a few things:

1. WHY is it almost July?? WHERE is my summer going????

2. My GRE class got f-ed up and I got put into a class on days that mean I am missing like 4 classes… awesome… not like I can skip these two weddings I have the next two Saturdays or anything… oh and I will be travelling the other two.. as in-in transit… BAHHHHH WTH

3. PhD apps are like a job.. when I already have two jobs.. and a masters project to work on… and it is summer so I am lazy….

4. I am gone the next two weekends and that is stressful

BREATH hahaha seriously though I do this to myself.. I will be all hunky dory and then all of a sudden freak the F out for no real reason when I will figure everything out and it will be glorious again! Basically it is just this silly GRE course that I signed up for Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday because those days always work, and Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays DO NOT work… but I got switched into another class… and  I have already missed one class! What is the point of being in/paying for a class that I am missing so much? and The GRE is a BIG deal… words of encouragement anyone?

Ok… in other news… AWESOME work out today!!! I ran 2 miles to Yoga Sculpt! The run was ok, but i had an annoying little backpack on and it kept slipping! But as usual Caitlin taught the best class today! I love her attitude and her teaching style in general! I walked home and talked to my boss on the way which did nothing but send me into stress spirals (sorry Jess, but you heard how stressed I was getting right)

I came home and made an awesome Smoothie Bowl!

Strawberry- Chocolate Smoothie!

1 c frozen strawberries

1c frozen Bananas

1/2 c coconut milk

1 packet chocolate almond butter

1 tblsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Now I am off to run to Target and then go play with Baby Hudson and do GRE work! Yay hahaha I will be back later and in a much better mood I promise!!!

What stresses you out?

Have you taken the GRE/GMAT/MCAT/LSAT?

What was your work out today?


Peace, Love and be Sperry!

Triple S Sunday: Smoothies, Salads, Sunshine!

Allo there!

Last night I was actually productive and made power moves toward grad apps! yay for me! I have started one personal statement… out of 12… hey it’s something!! Colleen had to study for a midterm so she was great motivation for me to get things done!!! Thankss Colleeennyyy! Then I went home and read for about 2.5 seconds until I passed out! Such a cool kid on a Saturday night… BUT dumdumdum that was my first saturday night NOT going out all summer… wow

This morning I got up and made myself a delicious smoothie bowl! I have never done a smoothie bowl before but Julie always makes them look SO yummy so I was intrigued…. Survey says? Smoothies are WAY more fun to eat with a spoon! It is like ice cream… only for breakfast!!

In my smoothie:

1 c Frozen Strawberries

1/2 c Frozen Peaches

1 Packet Vanilla Protein Powder

1/2 c Unsweetened Coconut Milk

1 tbsp Peanut Butter (yea yea it’s not Paleo whatever I ran out of almond butter!)

mmmmmmmmmmm it was frothy and smooth and cold and creamy and bliss

An hour later I hauled myself from my apartment and went to YOGA SCULPT with my friend Jessica! This weekend has been a great one for group yoga! This class was intense from the get go and I LOVED it!! I was a hot sweaty mess in the best way!!! I came home craving veggies soooo Grilled Shrimp Skewers and salad it was!!

I had grilled veggies left over from last night and so I cut them up, tossed the shrimp on the grill and added the veggies onto salad greens and fresh red peppers!! Then I added the shrimp… pause to reminisce on how good this was… and done

Thank you WF for selling these shrimp skewers so cheap because I think I might live off of them! Grilled shrimp is the bomb and 3 skewers for 1.50? Well that is just a deal no one can and should pass up… unless of course you are allergic or something!  Today’s were garlic and basil… sorry in advanced to anyone I see later today!! For dessert I had a bowl of fresh fruit!

Now I am off to go sit in the SUNSHINE… and 95 degree weather… awesome… if I can find a spot by my pool which may be impossible… oh well

enjoy your Sunday!!!

Do you like smoothie bowls or cups?


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!

Farmer’s Market fun!

Today I ventured to the Cherry Creek Farmers Market for the first time ever!!! Sadly I went alone because well I only told one other person I was going and they were too lazy to get out of bed!!!

Holy moly it was awesome! Next time I am bringing peeps because it was too overwhelming to do solo.. also I was SO tempted to cheat on paleo due to all the yum yum yummy food stands….. pupusas, tamales, latkes, cupcakes, cake bubbles, apple cinnamon pretzels, and way, way, way more!!! There was even a wine tasting booth… sadly it was 10 am and I couldn’t fathom drinking yet!I ended up just getting some delicious produce! A beefsteak tomato the size of my head, fresh zucchini, avocado, peppers and nectarines!!! I love fresh produce!

After the market I went to yoga with my friends Justin and Michelle, we needed to detox from Michelle’s bday party last night! It was a good class and I definitely sweat out all my toxins! I ran a few more errands, and then came home and made a wonderful lunch!!

Here, because I knwo you love seeing my ridiculous night out pics.. are a few for you!

Tequila Lime Shrimp with Nectarine Avocado Pepper salad!!

OMG was this delicious!!!


1 Nectarine

1/2 red pepper

1/4 cantelope

1/2 avocado

5 cut up grape tomatoes

grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp Skewers ($1.50 from WF!!!)

This was fresh and summery and perfect after Hot Power Fusion!!

Since ya know I have been eating so healthy…… it was time for a treat…..FRO YO BABY!! I know… but I have been so good, and  it was part of my NEEDS!!! MMMM it was good, but I think once a week is ok with me! I actually have really enjoyed this first week of Paleo and just eating as many fruit and veggies as my little body can fit! Also I had earned a free fro yo.. so who can pass that up? Yea NO ONE!

When I was fully satisfied, and had to leave because teh 14 yr olds sitting next to me (I mean college freshman) were having friend drama that was too funny and I had to fight too hard to not burst out laughing… yea I know bad Meg… but really if you had been there you would have felt the same as me! I went to bring Z’s aunt to the airport! I love driving, especially with new people because I get to make new friends!! Thanks Julia for a fun ride!!!

I came home and made a veggie-tastic dinner!!! Grilled tomato, zucchini, red pepper, asparagus, and avocado!! YUM!! This was too good! No meat which is exactly what I needed because lately I have started to feel a little overwhelmed with all the meat in my diet!  This dinner was fresh and filling in the best possible way! I rounded it out with a baked sweet potato and fruit for dessert!!

Ok now off to go annoy Colleen who is babysitting! I am such a good friend hahaah

Have a good Saturday Night yo!!

Do you have a local farmers market?!?


Peace, love, and be Sperry!!

“Spaghetti” time!

Holla Holla Back Y’all!

So I have a problem.. I love laying by the pool but I can’t do it for a long period of time! It’s not that I get bored… I am reading Blink right now and it is super good, but I get too hot and sweaty and uncomfortable… so after like 2 hours… I am back in my cool apartment.. fail… at least I got some articles read for my master’s project?

Today I had play time with Zachy!! We hung out with his aunt and his Grammy today, and of course Baby H! I have said it many times but I will say it again… I LOVE THIS CHILD! Legit he keeps getting funnier any funnier as he gets older!

I went for a run with my other favorite.. Wrigley after work… I love having my blond bf with me on runs! He is such a good companion.. except I can tell he thinks I run slow.. hey it was still kind of hot… and I was tired!!! At least we ran three miles??? I wanted to go five, but I could tell my furry friend was thirsty.. and so was I!

you call that running?

follow me, I will show you how

I came home and prepped spaghetti squash with tomato sauce, tomatoes, basil, and Italian chicken sausage!!

I love spaghetti squash, my friend Lana got me hooked on this year! It tastes very similar to pasta and has a similar texture- without the guilt of eating pasta! So it is a good Paleo substitute!

To prepare Spaghetti squash, cut the squash in half, take out the seeds and bake on 450 for a bout 20 minutes or until soft! Then with a fork scoop out the inside, it will come out in strands like noodles! Then toss in whatever kind of sauce you want! I have done a simple olive oil, basil, and diced tomato mix which is fresh and light but tonight I was craving arrabiata sauce! So I tossed that in with fresh basil, tomato chunks, and cut up chicken sausage! OMG this meal was amazing!!! It definitely hit the spot and will be used much more!

Afterwards I made a banana almond sorbet! Okk honestly.. it was CHOCOLATE almond butter… but whatever… I am allowed to have chocolate when I want it… otherwise I will die and never be able to follow this lifestyle!

So simple, ice, frozen banana slices, and chocolate almond butter straight into my love… the food processor, and pulse into smooth!!

Yum yum yum!! Yea Yea Billy… I cheated… it’s fine… I am not as dilligent as you are.. I wish I was… you are obviously the superior sibling! Ha ha jk… but seriously look at my brother’s comment on Paleo here to see the difference… he has researched this to death… I have read some blogs, leafed through a few books… and talked to him… and I am ok with it, mostly because I have him and he is the best! Also please don’t read this as me being lazy and blase about this! I am taking this seriously, I just can’t read about this in as much detail as Billy does, maybe someday but I prefer to read those like Cely or Kara who are living Paleo than a scientific website!

Ok now I am going to bed… because I am tired.. and while I can I love to go to bed early. because I am sure I will be up late this weekend… woo woo

Leaving you with this… Toddlers and Tiaras… REALLY… PLEASE STOP THIS SHOW… it is so sad to me… like actually lets ruin little girls at as young of an age as possible… sweet thanks

REALLY FALSE EYELASHES AND NAILS….. REALLY SHE IS LIKE SEVEN! But really, that little girl has more beauty supplies than I do!!

I am way prettier than you.. so stop trying

way more like it… love Tom Hanks.. hahahahaha also… I need someone squirting me with water when I try and steal a cookie! Also… is it scary that Tom Hanks is spot on some pageant moms?

Ok.. now I am off!! Catch ya in the AM… have a good night!!


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!

Summer Salad!!!!

So yesterday was the first official day of summer!! Yay! I celebrated today with a wonderful summer salad!!!!

Ready for it?

Grilled Salmon and Mosh Posh Salad!

I grilled a thin piece of salmon and laid it on top of a salad that looked like this:


Broccoli Slaw

Orange Peppers



sooo yummy! So many different flavors and textures… I think nectarines may be my new favorite salad addition!!! I am a big fan of fruit in salads… it just freshens them up somehow and this was no exception!!

Also as usual the salmon stole the show… creamy, buttery, delicious!

In other news …. today I had my first individual client!!! Omg I feel so accomplished!! I talked too much but it went well!!!

Ok that’s it.. time to go read articles by the pool!


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!

$4.35 for Chipotle?

Fun fact I haven’t fallen asleep before two since Thursday…. I know… why? Well I go out or hang out late watching movies, or pick friends up at the airport late haha… but tonight.. I am home alone with no plans of changing that I can go to sleep when I want… aka like 10 pm

Also Pretty Little Liars is back…. and I love it! I got hooked because Liza watches it! And now here I am on my couch watching it alone!!!

Today was day 2 of Paleo! I did good today.. way better than yesterday! I did bomb all day.. I even went to the movies and didn’t have my usual popcorn… until I got home! My friend and I decided to watch Hall Pass, and he wanted popcorn.. so stove top popcorn it was… and then he wanted brownies… so of course completely normal I whip up peanut butter brownie cupcakes… and ate a few bites… SOOOOO GOOOOOD! I didn’t take pictures of dinner or my late night treats… I’m sorry!

But the brownies…. they stole the show! So even though I can’t share pictures I can share the recipe!

Amazing Brownies from My Baking Addiction

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
veg cooking spray
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
10 tablespoons (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 large eggs (I only used two.. because I only had 2)

1/2 c peanut butter

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Whisk flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl; set aside. Spray an 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Fit a sheet of foil in pan and up two sides, so you can use it as a handle to pull cooked brownies from pan (I used parchment paper). Spray sheet with cooking spray.

Melt chocolates and butter in a medium bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove from heat; whisk in sugar and vanilla. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, fully incorporating each one before adding the next. Continue to whisk until mixture is completely smooth and glossy. Add dry ingredients, whisk until just incorporated. Stir in nuts, if using.

Pour batter into cupcake tins. Fill half way then add a drop of peanut butter. Once there is peanut butter in each tin fil the rest of the tin with the remaining batter! Bake for 30-35 minutes

But  dinner was bomb last night too! I made BBQ Shrimp, Salmon and Brats (don’t worry I wasn’t alone) with macaroni (not for me) broccoli and coleslaw (made with vinegar and olive oil and a bit of stevia!) sooo goood!

Today I had a fruit bowl for breakfast, followed by a fresh delicious lunch!!!

Grilled Pork Chops with left over coleslaw beefed up with peppers and green beans!

Yea… so good! After an afternoon of laying by the pool/ consulting/ swimming for 45 minutes/ more consulting I came home STARVING! Too hungry to wait for anything to cook! Sooo I went to Chipotle!! I got steak, salsa, guacamole and lettuce… with an extra side of pico de gallo… for  $4.35!!!! OMG!!! Thank you Paleo.. you are actually saving me money!

On my last note… I found a new blog that I love today. Confessions from a Cookbook Queen… OMG talk about food porn and recipes where I basically want to make each one… right now… and stuff them all in my mouth! Kristan is so cute and funny with a brilliant mind for desserts!!!  Go on this blog now… just maybe not when you are hungry… or not eatings sweets… it is a tad painful!

Ok I am off… See ya in the am!!!

Do you have weakness foods? Mine are definitely brownies… they are my favorite baked good.. other than monster cookies of course!

Are you a late nighter? an early riser? both? I like to get up early everyday so I try to go to bed by 11 on weeknights! Lately though it is just not happening!


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!

All about food… and exercise!

Happy Monday Yo!

I am having another pseudo lazy day today… weekends lately take their toll on me and I haven’t even been drinking much! It is the late night hours I believe is what is doing it, and the busy days that come after the late nights! Last night I stayed with my friend Colleen after picking her up from the airport! It was great to see her and catch up,  but also it meant I had a gym buddy this morning! We went to her gym in order to take a spin class! I miss spin as I don’t do it as often as I used to! Last summer I used to do two spin classes in a row almost every day! After spin, Colleen went to class and I decided to be an overachiever and drive to 9:15 yoga sculpt! Oh man it was so worth it! I got my bootay kicked but felt so accomplished afterwards! I love when I tackle two hard workouts in a row, makes me feel strong and dedicated!

I ran some errands after my workout and came home STARVING! Because I am trying out Paleo now my lunch/breakfast was full of protein and veggies!

I had a lean burger topped with a dippy egg, lightly sauteed spinach, and pepper slices!!! SOOO Yummy!! Ok and I had mustard… which isn’t part of it but hey… what is life without my yummy condiments on top? Oh yea not worth living

I finished with some yummy watermelon! I want it to be summer forever so I can always have peaches watermelon and cherries… seriously they make my life so much better!

and now to segue back to my weekend.. I wanna share pics!! One of the wonderful food I ate yesterday and of my date with Zster on Saturday!

I hung out with my pint-sized bf all afternoon on Saturday and we had a fabulous day!! We played in his sweet baby pool that has a water slide, napped (yes, both of us) and then spent 2 hours in Wash Park!

wrigly was trying to hunt a squirrel.. what he would do with it if he caught it? No one really knows… even him

Yea he’s awesome…

After my quality time with my two favorite boys in Denver, I had dinner at CPK with my friend Marissa! I got the half BBQ chopped chicken salad, and she got the pesto pizza!

I love CPK!! Their pizza rocks and so does their salad!

and of course wine! Sooo yummy!

Yesterday I was a grilling machine! For lunch I made a Chicken Brat with shredded potatoes, green beans and pepper slices!

I love brats and got so excited when WF had chicken brats!!! SO good!

For dinner I made a seafood salad with grilled shrimp and scallops! SOOO GOOD! I love grilled shrimp and scallops!!! I will definitely be recreating this salad!!

Yea… hungry yet? This post is basically just about food!!

I have also been ridicuous about my workouts lately! Almost everyday I have been doing two-a-days! Yesterday I did a crazy hot power fusion… I legit looked like I had been in a pool (yea hot I know… or tmi Meg) and then because I was bored after cleaning I ran 4.5 miles hahaha.. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t have all that much going on?

Ok off to work on PhD stuff! see ya lataaaz

Did you grill this weekend?

What is your normal routine when you don’t have school or work?


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!

Happy Fathers Day!

Today we are celebrating dads everywhere! I wish I could be with my dad today, sadly he is across the ocean!

So I am using my blog to say thank you Daddy for being so awesome!!

My dad has always been there for me and my brothers, even when he was traveling. His hard work and sacrifices allowed us to live in many cool places and travel to amazing countries!

He has supported my quest for further education and my newfound love of racing! He also fully supported our sports growing up, buying books and doing everything he could to help us!

He has been very active in the community, and for 9 years has been the Comittee Chairman of Boy SCouts even though my brother hasn’t been active in boy scouts for about 3 years after getting Eagle Scout!

He is also the reason I love Reese’s, ice-Cream, and other sweets! He has ice-cream every night for desert and loves when I bake cookies! Between him and my baby bro they never last long!

He also has taught me everything about wine and is why I enjoy drinking a nice glass of Red at dinner once in awhile! Our dream is to own a vineyard some day!

So give your dad a hug and thank him for everything he has done!

Have a great Father’s Day!


Peace, Love and be, Sperry!

Island in the Sun

Is where I want to be! Yes it is sunny and warm here.. kind of…. but the number one place I want to go is Thailand! This is day 13 of The 30 Day Challenge! If I could go anywhere it would be to Thailand, and then the rest of Asia! I actually almost did a solo trip this summer but it didn’t work out! Maybe next year?!? It is weird but I would be totally ok with traveling alone in a tour group! I think it would be fun to really be alone and experiencing a new culture and really expanding my horizons and meeting new people!

My date with Z was awesome! We went to the bookstore to play trains and read books and then we went to Chipotle of course! I just love Chipotle… its so good!

This kid slays me.. seriously he is actually SO great now and the things that come out of his mouth are the funniest things ever! He has started skipping and kicking out his legs randomly while walking… and says “Megan look at me I’m like you”………… …… …… wow…. I am certainly teaching him valuable life lessons!!! I think we spend too much time together… he is a lot like me hahahaha

After dropping Z off I went straight for Fro Yo before settling on the couch in front of E!… I know how do I manage to lead such an awe-inspiring, exciting life? I just don’t know! I actually am contemplating going out… I dunno if I can do it….. my sweats are SO comfy right now and so is the nook in my couch

That is the face of pure laziness right there!

Ok my idol aka Chelsea Handler is on… must go!

Where do you want to travel to most? Would you ever travel alone?

Plans for this weekend?


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!
