Good Morning my loves! I was def. a girl on the go yesterday and I could not be happier about that. Don't you just love it when you get those things that you have been putting off FOREVER done?! I know I do.
So my day started off with some breakfast and the writing/research for my last post.
Cherry Yogurt with Sliced Banana
Whole Wheat Toast with Apricot Preserves...notice the outline for my post in the background...yes I make outlines, yes I am a teacher!
After breakfast I did some MAJOR remodeling in my house. My roommate and I are turning one of the rooms downstairs into an office for me. Because currently my laptop-ing is done on the dining room table. I wish I had a before picture of this room because it was HELL! But after literally HOURS of work, look at it now:
Here are some key points to notice about this room:
- I displayed my first book that I recieved from student teaching for my classroom library on the shelves. It is Curious George and the Fire Truck, because I did a unit on fire trucks for the whole six weeks of student teaching!
- The drawers on the shelve are animal print...so is just about anything else in our house.
- My diploma is meticulously placed on the the table. I need to frame it.
- For now I am doin it Japanese style and sitting on the floor at the table, but today my mom is supposed to be bringing me a desk.
So there you have it. The fruits of my labor!
After I finished that up it was time for some FOOD!
Turkey Wrap on Italian Herb Flat-Out
After lunch I got ready and went to work to check out a new shipment of dresses that we got in!
Which reminds me...a lot of you asked about my shirt from a few posts ago (the one with the back cut-out) and I got it from the clothing store that I work at...MAXRAVE. Currently I don't think that you can order online, but you can go to maxravestores.com and find out where the closest store to you is.
When I got done with lunch I sat down to download some new music for my runs. I had been listening to the same songs over and over for way to long. I don't know about you, but music is everything when it comes to my workouts. If I am bored with the music, I usually get bored with the workout and quit sooner. If I have something fun and upbeat to listen to and hold my attention, I can go WAY harder and longer. (thats what she said!...right Brooke?).
So here are some of the new songs that I downloaded.
- Madcon - Beggin'
- The Dream - Walkin' on the Moon
- Mario - All the Above
- Keri Hilson - Knock You Down
- Jennifer Hudson - Spotlight (Remix)
- Ciara - Never Ever
- Metric - Gold Guns
- Lil Wayne - At War
- Lupe Fiasco - Real
- The Decemberists - Oh Valencia
There are lots more, but that is what I have currently been playing. Quite the mix. I never just listen to one genre of music. There is so much good music out there...why limit yourself?!
Last nights dinner was spaghetti at the parents house. My mom makes the BEST spaghetti, but like they say on Sesame Street "Its a SOMETIMES food". But I think that may be just about every meal eaten at the parents. haha.
This morning I am enjoying a bowl of "Banana Pancake Oats" and a laptop full of blogs.
For those of you who were wondering "Banana Pancake Oats" is just a simple recipe, but it reminds me of banana pancakes.
- 1/2 cup Oats
- 1/2 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
- 1/2 Banana
- 1 tbsp. Maple Syrup
- LOADS of Cinnamon
I plan on a run later...gotta rock the new jams! My 5k is coming up and I really wanna run it in less than 28 min. My friend Ben has challenged me, but he claims he can run it in 22 minutes. I can't hang with that...but I think he may be lying ;)
Hope everyone is having a MARVELOUS day!
Lots of Love, <3 Ems.
