I am SOO sorry for being away for so long!!! I'm back though, in the second hour of my 23rd birthday! I am mostly celebrating in style with my friends later today, but I played darts and drank beer with my "formerly best friend, now second best friend". It's been a busy week for me and I'm just going to re-cap the most exciting parts:
Yesterday (Monday): My new apartment got confirmed that I can move in at the end of June!! Being a recently ex-grad student (got my master's degree a year ago!) I am still paying rent! And my roommate found an out-of-state job so I needed to move. I'm glad it got confirmed! I think it will be a good living situation!
Today (Tuesday): Baby-sat (9-11), moved few boxes over to my new place (12-2), taught violin (3-10pm).
Sunday: Played a children's concert with Peter of "Peter, Paul and Mary" (a band from the 70s and 80s) and several of my students had a recital. Then I hung out with my boyfriend and several of our mutual friends at a local bar.
Saturday: Taught in the morning then drove directly to play an outdoor wedding (solo violin!)
Friday: Played a late afternoon wedding (also solo violin!)
All the while, in my free time, I've been packing up boxes. Almost everything that I won't need for the next month is already packed up.
My birthday plans (after I wake up as I'm blogging at 2am before technically going to sleep!) include getting a massage, going shopping, getting free coffee, working out (!), going to a park with my boyfriend (Frisbee?), teaching violin, and hanging out at a local bar with friends. There will be copious amounts of coffee, chocolate and beer/shots consumed. It'll be a good birthday! It's already been a good birthday and I've only been 23 for an hour and a half! :)
I'll just post a few food pictures, quickly. Mostly this blog was to let you all know that I'm alive and well and I'll try to be much better about consistent blogging in the future!
I've been making a pretty big dent in the bars from my bar swap with Mi. They have all been delicious and I'm so glad we did it! She's emailed me to let me know that she received my package and she'll be blogging about it when she has time!
I've been eating cereal (mainly Kashi GoLean Crunch) with yogurt or cottage cheese and some kind of fruit every day and it keep me surprisingly full, even without very much fat, which I find hard to believe. No complaining here.
I still add fat to breakfast every morning, even when I think "hmm, I don't need any fat with this!" Because I know that I do.
Wow, my breakfasts start to look REALLY repetitive! Sorry!
Instant human; just add caffeine!
I made a huge pan of sauteed cabbage, lake and onion and have been eating quite a bit of it every day! I truly love sauteed veggies and I can't get enough of them!
My mom sent me some Pecan Almond Peanut Clusters and I finished the bag in 2 days flat. (Yay for healthy fats. And by the way, these are DELICIOUS, in case you were wondering!)
This bowl is a delicious mix of Amy's refried beans, fat free cheese, full-fat cheddar, broccoli, green beans, corn, and salsa.
Happy JUNE 10th everyone! I'll party it up for all of you who are stuck working or doing non-birthday, non-exciting things! :) I'll report back on my birthday festivities later this week! Have a great day!!
