For those of you that have work this week (or SAT prep like me :(), its hump day!!! And the week is officially half over. YES!
I have been so busy this week; from preparing and packing for China (I leave Monday!) to a double-header and a tournament for my travel team. Oh and lets not forget the four hours of SAT prep I have everyday this week. Summer has really gotten me out of the studying mentality and that class is making my brain hurt. LOL. At least I am there with my friends and the material is actually really helpful.
My morning started at 7 o’clock (I know, way top early for a summertime wake up), but it actually wasn’t to hard to get up because of what I had waiting for me. In honor of Katie’s giveaway over at her blog, I decided to take park in the breakfast sundae contest. And what could make a better sundae than overnight oats. My sundae is opposite of how a normal on is however, cream on the bottom and icecream on the top.
Topped with I’scream (cherry-nanner softserve) and “Sprinkles”.
Total yum in my tum. After this I was pumped to learn some SAT vocab!!! Okay well maybe that is a little bit of an exaggeration.
Before I forget here are some pics from my friend, Kathy’s b-day dinner last night:
It was a girls night and it was fuuuun. We went to a greek restaurant and got greek salads, souvlaki, and gyro’s. Delish! We topped it off with a chocolate molten cake split amongst the three of us.
Here are some eats from today:
Such a good lunch. I was starved when I came home from my prep class. I ended up having a snack about 2 hours later.
I got tons of mail today including three new products to test out. I am super excited for all of them and I will try and get up at least partial reviews tomorrow. Here is one of them:
Can’t wait to try this stuff. I have seen it on Kath’s blog so many times and couldn’t wait to try it for my self….I love fruity jams.
Looking back on today, its been a pretty great one. And it only got better around dinner time, when my mom took me to my favorite restaurant.
I went here a few weeks ago and did a pretty extensive review, but today was all about the eats.
I started with the spicy veggie juice that I ordered last time…but it tasted different and not as enjoyable, maybe it was just a different mix of veggies or different amounts.
Next up was THE BEST GAZPACHO I have ever had. This bowl was devoured in about .3 seconds, it was that good. SO creamy and perfectly seasoned.
For my entrée I ordered one of the specials: Live Ratatouille. Sadly, I completely forgot to take picture of my dish before destroying it. oops. It had raw corn, red peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, olives, basil, and romaine all marinated in balsamic vinegar, olive oil , and italian herbs….and it was awesome. I ordered sautéed chicken on top for some protein, kind of defeating the raw, vegan purpose of the meal. Oh well.
Even after all that food, my mom and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try one of their delectable vegan, gluten free deserts. We ordered the Double Chocolate Ganache Cake.
I swear I have died and gone to heaven. I don’t know how the chefs did it, but they are talented. They created one of the best deserts I have ever had without flour or animal products. This slice was amazingly moist, chewy, and oh so chocolatey. It tasted like dark chocolate on steroids! And I loved the chunky pieces of fudge layered in side the cake.
After our evening of bliss, we headed over to the grocery store to pick up a few things for China.
I am bringing tons of snacks with me (these are only some of them) for the 18 hour flight and all of the sightseeing we are going to be doing. I will show you all my final luggage once I am all packed to go.
I am off to bed….I have another early wake up call tomorrow.
Happy Hump day!
PS. Here’s a cute pic of Ell-Bell from today.
What a cutie.
PSS. I am thinking about doing a Q&A post in the next few weeks, so I am asking you guys to leave any questions you have for me in the comments section or email me at Proulxkr@roadrunner.com! I would love to hear from you.
