Happy Hump Day!
I’m finally getting settled into my new living quarters :)… My parents are re-doing their bedroom so they are living in my room and I’m living in the BASEMENT. Yuppp… wonderful, ain’t it!?! LOL, actually it’s not too bad- especially after I got everything settled in. Heres a wonderful before and after picture of my temporary room while I was unpacking my life away…
Great improvements, Right!?!
AS A REWARD FOR CLEANING MY ROOM ( I kid you not- my mom took away my car keys and told me we would go food shopping as soon as the basement was clean...ladies and gentleman- am officially 7.), Momma and I went to Costco (aka bulk heaven on earth):
I ended up getting mixed greens, frozen fruit, naners, Maranatha<3, Fage, a HUGE bag of prunes, and a few other unpictured items (Roasted red peppers, salmon, etc.) That place is wonderful, I wanted to by 20 other things, but I refrained. They also had samples of CLIF bars (which we all know, I know what they taste like), but I clearly had to sample them, just in case I forget their great flavor ;).
In turn, I made my mommy and I some apple oats the next morning with Maranatha and Greek Yogurt :
My mom loves all this stuff, and she even buys Greek Yogurt when I’m not home anymore because of it’s deliciousness!
In other news, yesterday was POURING RAIN outside. Like gross. My friend Erin and I were supposed to go to the city, but because of the circumstances, we decided to stay in. I decided to introduce her to the beautiful world of foodie foods. Yup, I am converting the world.
(Oh, and Erin and I both LOVE taking pictures, so the following is a result of that)
First, we went to the local farmer’s market to get me some fruits &veggies 🙂
I made a cucumber and tomato salad with oil and vinegar (and salt& peppa)
And CLEARLY this wouldn’t be complete without cheetahs!! (She LOVED them!):
Can you believe she’s never had a sweet potato before?! The world is so sheltered ;).
It was a good day!! Being that it was a rainy day, it was fun to catch up, drink tea, and make some yummy food 🙂
Overall, I am happy to be home and be around my friends and family- but I do miss my friends at school (Shout out to Dana!)… Right now I’m awaiting our final grades to be posted because i got a 93.5 in one of my classes and I’m desperately hoping that it means that I got an A, rather than an A-, but I’m not completely sure… I think it may be an A- though :/… but it’s all good- I’ll be happy with either! (I’m sucha nerd! hehe)
What do you guys like to do on a rainy day for fun? I like to talk with friends, make food, or watch a movie and relax 🙂
And Have you guys introduced any of your friends to exciting and new foods?! How did they react?? My mom and Erin love this stuff!
