I’m currently writing to you at 3:49 a.m. I can tell you that, while I’m not happy about the fact that I’m awake, talking to you is making this a little better. I’m not sure why I can’t sleep; it could be a combination of being in a different setting, nerves about starting the semester tomorrow, or something I ate yesterday. Then there’s the loud duct system and the car alarm that went off outside… either way, I’m having a sleepless night.
Today I have a petty easy schedule, only two classes. One of them is Pilates, so I’m considering that more of a workout than a real course. It’s strange to think that this is my last first day of a college semester, but man, am I ready to be a degree-holding lady.
Equally important as my degree is the fact that it’s Marvelous in My Monday, hosted by the lovely healthy diva, Katie. <– I am kidding. I know my degree is more important. But MIMM is also high on my list since I can reminisce about all the great things happening in my life.
Marvelous is… that Trader Joe’s trip I mentioned on Friday! My mom was really too nice to me that day. I stocked up on a bunch of goodies I can’t get while I’m at school.
We also stopped at Aerie so I could get some pajamas. They’re something I neglect buying for myself, but I think it’s worth it to have cute jammies now that I have some!
Marvelous is… my little brother all grown up for his winter formal! He and his date look fabulous, no? Not going to lie, I teared up a little when he was driving away that night. You can’t tell due to the horrendous lighting, but her dress was a really pretty dark purple. I will have to mess with the pics in Photoshop because Picasa didn’t do much to help.
Marvelous is… margaritas and Mexican food with mom and dad! While Adam was out at his dance, we went to Pittsburgh chain Mad Mex. For dinner, I had this delicious portobello mushroom and tofu fajita. I really didn’t think about taking a picture of it, but I did snap my strawberry marg. Typical.
Marvelous is… chocolate chip pancakes at breakfast with my brother… that I forgot to take a picture of. But I did tweet this:
PS, if you don’t follow me on Twitter, you should!
Well, that’s all I’ve got for you at this early hour of the morning. Hopefully I can fall asleep before my alarm goes off.
Question of the Day:
What’s your favorite Trader Joe’s find, if you’ve been there? Or, what’s one item you’ve seen that you can’t wait to get your hands on when you finally visit TJ’s?! This time I bought some veggie burgers I’m excited to try.
