Good morning everyone!
Well I stayed true to my word yesterday and had probably the laziest Saturday I’ve had in recent memory. I actually started to feel like a giant bum so I made myself get out of the house to go grocery shopping and also made a stop at Best Buy (Season 1 & 2 of Weeds on sale!). The highlight of my day though, is when my parents came over to bring me a Puff Pillow from the Farmer’s Market! YESSSS!!
Flaky pastry topped with rock sugar and filled with sweet Bavarian cream. Oh my!
I seriously vegged the rest of the day. To be fair, the heat index was 104, so nobody was doing a whole lot of anything around here. Ben and I watched Finding Nemo on tv (best movie ever!!) and went to bed at 10. Super!
Now, today is vastly different than yesterday. I got up early, swept the front porch, weeded a part of my garden, moved and fed my tomato plants and had breakfast. All before 9!
Here’s said breakfast: Blueberry Cheesecake Fat-Free Yogurt, Cantaloupe & a WildBlueberry PURE Bar.
Who doesn’t like cheesecake in the morning?
The last of my juicy cantaloupe 😦 No worries, I got a melon of a different variety to tide me over for this coming week!
And a delectable, chewy PURE Bar.
Those are giant blueberry hunks…’nuff said.
So the plan for the rest of the day is to drive down to Iowa City (about 2 hours away) to surprise Ben’s Mom for her birthday! She’s up there moving Ben’s little brother back to college, so we’re going to surprise her there since we weren’t able to celebrate her birthday when it actually happened on Friday. Kind of a long and complicated story, but the jist of it is – we’re road tripping today!
I love going to Iowa City – it’s the home of the University of Iowa and the Iowa Hawkeyes, GO HAWKS! I love being in college towns and especially walking through college campuses. It brings back so many wonderful memories of my days spent in college. Ahhh, things were so simple back then, weren’t they?? Actually, let’s be real, exams and papers were a huge pain in the A and I’m really glad I don’t have to do them anymore. BUT, there’s no denying that college as a whole, was the best time of my life!
Magazines are packed:
What college did you go to/are currently going to?
I went to the University of Northern Iowa – GO PANTHERS!
