Sweet Sweets

I hope everyone had a happy hump day! Today was filled with sweets and random awesome stuff. For example, I was making my freezing 20 min walk from work to class and as I passed through the commons, I heard…wait for it…DISNEY MUSIC BLARING FROM THE SPEAKERS!! Let me tell you, this made my week…month…year?? How come it took JMU, or whatever student org that was responsible for that, 6 years to do that?! As I passed by, I heard “Kiss The Girl” from The Little Mermaid and “Go The Distance” from Hercules. Smile It was all I could do to resist singing! Just because I’m 24 years old doesn’t mean I have to give up the gems of my childhood haha.

I just realized I haven’t updated y’all on the “Textbooks” front. So here ya go: Classes are great, professors are even better, and the work load isn’t horrible. My thesis, on the other hand, is a piece of work. Basically, it should take 1 whole school year for data collection, but I only have 1 semester. So it’s been a little stressful to say the least. I’m excited to start data collection though, which should be soon!! Smile Also on the school front, I have my interview next Friday!!! I’m extremely excited to fly up/out there and check out the program. A lot of this week/weekend/next week will be spent reviewing my CV, reflecting, and reading up on the school/program. I’ll keep all of you bloggies updated on the outcome!

Today marked Day 3 of my eat-a-different-breakfast-every-day adventure. Here’s what was in the mix!

-1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
-1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1 T chia seeds
-1 thinly sliced banana
-1/2 cup blueberries
-1 T almond butter


Yeah, yeah, yeah…this is similar to what I usually have…but don’t the blueberries add something different? Winking smile This was also the 3rd day in a row I ate breakfast at my work desk. The only reason I do this is because I’ve been getting to work an hour earlier and don’t like rushing to eat breakfast at home.

Check out this sweet treat I had after lunch today…


I may or may not have had two…


Thank goodness for office birthdays, right? SmileI’m off to…read for fun! Have a great night!
Do y’all have a favorite Disney movie?
Mine is The Little Mermaid!


  1. i literally made this exact same oatmeal for breakfast this morning!! but i used frozen blueberries which turned the whole bowl purple! sort of different looking but de-lish :)

  2. Mine are frozen too! Monday they dyed my whole bowl blue, but not yesterday...I think because I used more water Monday? Who knows :)
