Where does the time go? I feel like just yesterday it was new years 2009 and now we are getting close to welcoming in 2010. Crazy crazy!
It feels so weird today not having class or anything to do. I really don’t know how to handle all this free time!
Last night was fun, I made a mix of whole wheat and spinach penne and paired it with a leftover tomato sauce I had made about a month ago and froze. It was still good luckily and it included about 1/2 jar of Newman’s marinara sauce, a can of diced tomatos, garlic, ground turkey and mushrooms. I added a mix of shredded colby and parmesan cheeses on top as well. On the side I just had a small iceberg lettuce salad with Trader Joe’s Poppyseed dressing.
I don’t have any pictures because I don’t feel comfortable whipping out my camera to take pictures when others are around yet and I may not ever be okay with it, but we will see!
Christmas lights were pretty last night, but I was surprised that there weren’t more up! Maybe with the economy it is too expensive to pay extra on electric this year? Who knows, but it was kind of sad!
There was none of this:
or even this, unfortunately:
BUT while we were driving, we were lucky enough to be over by the zoo and we could see some of the light without spending $25 and freezing to death!
It was really cool to see it because I wrote a story about it for my school’s newspaper about a month ago so it was pretty special to me!
After driving around for literally two hours, we stopped at Graeter’s Ice Cream ( http://www.graeters.com/) and split two scoops. Even though it was freezing, I still needed some ice cream, get used to it ;-)
Their ice cream is so good yet so bad for you yet so worth it!!!
We had one scoop of the cookie dough:
Graeter’s Cookie Dough made from scratch tastes great.
Add it to French Pot Ice Cream with dark chocolate chips
and it tastes even better!
And one scoop of the buckeye blitz:
Our premium chocolate ice cream that has been fortified
with our creamy peanut butter flavor and loaded with
peanut butter cookie dough pieces and our signature
We then watched some tv.. I was disappointed that Grey’s was a re-run but I was excited to watch real housewives of OC strictly because I love Gretchen! She is too cute, and she may or may not be a little “free” (if you catch my drift) but she is just too cute and she can always find something fun in every situation!
Okay MOVING on :-)
Breakfast was an egg on an everything bagel from Bruegger’s Bagels, brought to me by my boyfriend :-) Seriously, in love with him! The boy and I have been together since my sophomore year of high school and we have had ups and downs, but have made it through!
We took this picture at the apple orchard that he took me to for sweetest day :-)
Anywho, now I just ate lunch (same oatmeal as yesterday morning, boring? Maybe. Delicious? Absolutely, plus it is an easy way to get my amazing grass in.
Well, I am off to pack because I am heading home for winter break tomorrow and then a little elliptical work out! My older brother is coming to visit tonight so we may do a little bar hopping tonight :-)
Enjoy your friday!!
