Good morning! It’s a dreary day over here, but I’m not going to let it ruin my mood! I’m one of those people who kind of likes rainy days. I’m not exactly sure why, but there’s something comforting about them. I got up bright and early, got my run in, and now I’ll be checking blogs/eating breakfast until I head to my first class.
Well, I made it through my marathon day. I actually felt surprisingly energized…I hope it lasts throughout the week. I’ve found the key to surviving busy days is being armed with snacks for whenever hunger strikes. This apple pie Larabar saved me yesterday – it’s only of my new favorite flavors! I did think I almost cracked a tooth when I came across a whole almond in the bar. Not cool.
Lately, I’ve been snagging recipes from Chelsey. On Sunday night, I made her cheesy chickpea quinoa with some random frozen veggies in the mix. It was so good. Trader Joes Tri-Color Quinoa + Nutritional Yeast = heaven.
I tried my new Trader Joe’s chili enchilada sauce…man it was spicy.
Last night, I roasted up some spaghetti squash (I’ve become a pro) and made Chelsey’s Creamy Pasta Primavera. I added some chicken, mushrooms, and grape tomatoes to her original recipe. I loved it and will definitely be making it again! By the way, my key to making spaghetti squash: roast at 400 degrees (sliced lengthwise) for 30 minutes, then microwave for about 5 minutes. It’s so much easier to scoop out the “pasta” when the squash is soft!
Check out that steam! Have you noticed a trend in the location of my meals? Yep – usually in front of the computer.
Ok – enough squash talk. I picked up my Semi-Formals shirt while I was at my chapter meeting yesterday. Cute, huh? These are literally the most comfy shirts ever. They’re Comfort Colors brand. They’re loose and run pretty big, so they’re perfect for lounging around.
I saw this on Pinterest – what great timing? I seriously will order every shirt my sorority makes. I also love races for the free stuff, too.
Although I was pretty productive yesterday, I spent a bunch of time catching up on blogs and organizing my life on my laptop. Per usual, I have tons of meetings this week on top of a bunch of work. Stickies on my Macbook are super helpful. Oh, and Google Reader is basically the best thing ever. I realize I’m pretty late in the game on this one, but it’s so convenient to have all my favorite blogs in one place. I can’t wait to add more to my subscription list!
Something else exciting from yesterday – I found out I actually DON’T have a final on the last day of finals, which means I get to go home a day earlier than originally planned! Coming from someone who has had a final on the last day of finals every semester since freshman year, this is incredibly exciting. Especially since we don’t get out until December 19 this year!
Hmm…that’s all I have for today. It’s probably time to stop procrastinating and work on my Spanish essay and upcoming blogs for my school’s newspaper. Hope you have a great Tuesday!
