I’m feeling like I’ve been stretched a little thin lately! School is stressful as heck, I’m trying to find a summer job, planning for the possibility of studying abroad next year, and integrating gym time, etc…it’s getting a little hectic. The house has totally fallen by the wayside and I feel like I definitely need to figure out how to balance my life. I only got a couple hours of sleep last night so I was feeling pretty crappy all day…all I can think about is
Is it graduation yet? Is it spring break yet? I want to breath the fresh mountain air!
I have the tendency to just want to skip whatever phase of life I’m in and just get to the next thing fast! I’ve learned that it’s a terrible attitude to have because I miss out on appreciating the wonderful things going on in the present. I spent ALL of college being excited for college to be over…and it’s only now that I realize we were having some truly amazing experiences in college and I wasn’t appreciating any of it. It’s something I’m working on! Food helps me to stay in the present and appreciate the little things. Let’s get to what I ate today!
Breakfast: My UGS
Second Breakfast: french toast with raspberries
I had some leftover Italian bread from making garlic bread for dinner last night, so I was pumped to put the rest of that loaf to use with some legit french toast. SO much better with real, thick bread like this. I inhaled this plate!
Morning Snack: little bag of triscuits, handful of smoked almonds (unpictured)
Lunch: burrito with ground beef, veggies, rice, black beans, etc.
I know…you’re SHOCKED that we went to Moe’s. Yeah…we’re back to going pretty much every “Student ID Wednesday”. We are the ultimate suckers for special discounts.
sweet nectar of life Jason’s kettle corn
I was in a foul mood at that point in the afternoon and Jas offered to make me some kettle corn…mood instantly lifted. Marriage was such a good plan.
Dinner: noodle stir-fry
After that kettle corn snack I took a completely unintentional 3-hour nap (slept right through yoga class) and woke up just wanting to cry because it was so late and I was starving but just really didn’t have it in me to cook dinner. Jason to the rescue! Did I mention about how marriage was the best plan ever? Did I? It bears repeating. I don’t know how I ever lived without him. This stir-fry he made was just as delicious as it looks. And of course I had my fav beverage on the side.
Dessert: leftover bday chocolate mousse!
Jas actually made that too! HAHA! Never thought I’d have a day where he made more of what I ate than I did. But today that’s exactly what I needed. Days like today are the reason that I need to stop asking Are we there yet? and start stopping to smell the roses. Roses like my awesome husband. <3
