Whoo hoo!!! Summertime is here. Unfortunately it’s pouring down rain out there (and has every afternoon this week!). I can’t stay to chat – I’ve got a chick flick and a glass of wine waiting on me
Both of my morning exams went well (well, well enough!) I got home around 11:30, starving for a snack, and decided to have an early lunch so I could get uptown to take my last exam ASAP. By the time I assembled lunch, it was already 12:00 so it wasn’t that early!
I whipped up a batch of Cilantro Pesto first –
And slathered it on a bagel topped with 1 slice turkey and some shredded swiss cheese, all toasted in the oven.
Alongside my bagel I made a vegetable salad with romaine, carrot, cuc, red + green pepper, capers and balsamic vinegar for dressing (the good kind!) plus a few dollops of Basha brand lemon hummus.
I was SO FULL when I finished all those veggies!
But I still managed to save room for the best chocolate in the world –
Exam #3 went horribly – but that’s because I didn’t study because I figured I only needed a 20 on it to get an A in the class!! I’m guessing I got between 70 and 85?
In the middle of the exam, I got really hungry. Not stomach growling hunger (which is always my morning style hunger) but the occasional kind I get in the afternoons: sharp pains. You know the kind that hurt to suck in or breathe? I decided I needed something with simple carbohydrates to get in my blood fast, something voluminous to fill me up, and something QUICK so I stopped at Smoothie King on my way home for a Mangosteen! Perrrrfect. It was only when I was driving back that I realized this was my second smoothie of the day! Guess it’s OK since this morning’s was all grains and dairy and this was all fruit.
I stopped into Harris Teeter after that to pick up a movie and a few groceries for the weekend (bananas, bread, berries, smoked salmon!). Have you seen those vending machine movie rentals yet? It’s $1 per night, and since we’re always good about watching the movie that night and returning it the next day, it’s a fabulous deal compared to Blockbuster’s $4.99. There is a limited selection, but they have lots of the big names. I choose the first romance I could see: P.S. I Love You. Hope it’s good!
Something bad is going on with my computer – it’s really slow and the hard drive is making bad noises. Uggg. I have no patience for slow computers.
See you guys later tonight!
