Thanksgiving BREAK!! I’ll still have some work to do, but 9 days of glorious rest. Ahhhhh…
That makes me SO excited!
You know what else makes me excited? CHRISTMAS!!!! If you don’t know it about me, then I’ll tell you now: I am obsessed with Christmas. I love everything about it, from the food to the giving to the weather. Oh my, it just makes me BURST with glee. No, really I could cry I’m so happy whenever Christmas comes around. Well…I am not a purist and I’ll listen to Christmas music as long as it is November 😀 So I am SO excited that some radio stations are now playing it. One is even 24/7 Christmas music. OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY.
Okay, now that I have
officially creeped you guys out shared my love for this amazing Holiday, let’s get onto my day! It was a good day, as far as Mondays go 😉 I have a semi-busy week. Just three tests 😉 I have a Biology test on Thursday, and a Latin and History test on Friday. But I am not very concerned about it. I started studying in advance for all of them cuz that’s just how I roll! Hehe…
I had a gorgeous and yummy Greek yogurt mess this morning! It made for very pretty pictures 😀
- 1 container Chobs Peach Greek Yog.
- Pomegran Plus Granola –> FABULOUS!
- oatmeal crisp cereal
- cinnamon added after pictures taken, of course!
Another snack I have been enjoying a LOT lately: the ever so simple pretzels+hummus!A yummy lunch+larabar for pre-bball snack! A fabulous homemade dinner of baked ziti made with whole grain/wheat (don’t exactly remember which!) pasta! How am I doing on my “less fruits, more veggies?” Well, pretty good actually. Yesterday I rocked it! For breakfast I made myself an omelet with two eggs, asparagus, spinach, avocado, parmesan, and topped it with sour cream and salsa. MMmmmMM!
And for lunch I made some acorn squash using Heather’s method! I had high hopes for this guy, but he came out kind of average. Well, he actually came out beautiful… And I even topped him with some cinnamon, ginger, agave, and little brown sugar. But still…just like blahhh! It lacked a strong flavor. Maybe it needed lots of butter 😀 Just kidding, but I think I will be sticking to my sweet potatoes and butternut squash! Heather’s preparation method is fabulous, I just don’t think acorn squash and I are meant to be 😉
My mom made homemade banana muffins Sunday morning before we were off to church and WOW, amaaziinnngg! Irresistible. The batter was even better 😉 Basketball practice was not very challenging today, and I wanted to go to the gym to get some strength training in anyways, so when my mom said she was going to the gym I decided to go along!
