Coming Up for Air

I’ve been studying all day. Time to come up for air. 😀


This week is a pretty low key week as far as my actual classes go. I have no homework due or tests, but the FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) exam is this Saturday! I can’t believe it!

This test is a pretty big deal. I spent the majority of the day with my head crammed in the review manual. I will be so happy when it’s over!!




I broke for lunch around 1pm, only two hours after breakfast! LOL.


I heated up some chili from waaaay back. I freeze it in individual servings, and it makes it really easy to reheat for a quick meal.


I got a sweet craving soon after, and finished up the fruit cup from Sunday’s picnic. I ate all but the watermelon, which I don’t really like!


Still needing sugar, I found these Chocobillys buried in the pantry. I actually got them on the plane ride home from the Healthy Living Summit in Boston! I have no idea how they lasted this long.


Dinner was eaten cold, and in between classes. It looks so small, but I promise it was big and filling! I don’t mind eating cold food, but it’s annoying to shove it down my throat in 10 minutes or less!


Included in the mix:

  • 1.5 servings of pasta (I was hungry!)
  • about half a grilled chicken breast
  • broccoli
  • pesto



Blogger Secret Ingredient

Don’t forget to submit your entries for this week’s blogger secret ingredient! This week’s ingredient: ACORN SQUASH!

The entries I have so far look pretty yummy!!


Vote for Lindsey!


My dear friend (and freshman year roommate) Lindsey over at Sound Eats has been looking for a job for months. She spends all of her time applying for jobs and trying to get anything that will give her and her husband (a teacher) an extra source of income. The road has been tough for the job hunt, but Lindsey has managed to keep a really upbeat outlook on everything stating that she is enough and that something great will come along soon. Well, she has found that opportunity and she really needs everyone’s help.

Lindsey has applied to be the next Good Mood Blogger! I believe she is perfectly qualified for this position and already has so much experience with blogging and social media up her sleeve. She also has all of the time in the world right now to put into being a Good Mood Blogger !


Ok, It’s WAY late now. I need to get some sleep, but first a snack. My tummy is growling!!!!

We freeze our chili individually as well 🙂 my dad always makes two crock pots full for the superbowl (one with meat and one vegetarian for one of my sisters – i actually prefer the vegetarian one now over the one with meat even though I haven’t been a vegetarian anymore for the past two years lol) Sometimes we heat it up to put on nachos 🙂 yummmm lol.
