Sweet Surprises

February 10, 2010 at 8:18 PM 11 comments

Hello. How goes it? It’s been another extremely longgg Wednesday for me. As if Wednesdays weren’t rough enough – I have class from 10:00am – 5:00pm (plus an hour commute) – I woke up with a chest cold. Great! I also had to be out the door half an hour earlier in time to drop of my O. Chem lab from yesterday’s 3-hour class from hell – that’s another story.

I made a waffle sandwich for brex in honor of (the recently engaged!) Janetha’s Waffle Wednesday:

2 Van’s Low-Fat Waffles + PB&Co Bee’s Knees + 1/2 mashed bananer

…and a jam jar of skim milk


I chugged along – “choo choooo” – from one class to another, and finally arrived home around the 6 o’clock hour to find a package waiting for me! After a long day at school feeling crappy and turning blue at the bus stop in the freezing February weather, it couldn’t have been a better day to recieve a surprise via the USPS.

Somebody loves me:

Can you guess who?

It’s someone that knows me really well…

Pink Socks, Pink ‘n’ Orange Thank You Notes, my favorite Bare Escentuals Rosie Pink Lip Gloss, and Pink Dark Chocolates

Homemade Granola Bars

Pineapple, Coconut, Macadamia Nuts & White Chocolate

Cherries, Almonds & Dark Chocolate

…and a fun ‘n’ fruity kitchen towel.

There’s only one person that it could be…and that person is my mom! Thank you, Mom! You never fail to show me how much I am loved. Infinite X’s & O’s.


My mind did not even consider exercising today, so after opening my sweet surprise, I slipped on my pink pajamas and fixed dinner.

Comfort Food Made Healthy

Grilled White Cheddar Cheese & Spinach Sandwich on Whole Wheat

with a bowl of Organic Creamy Tomato Soup

It’s just about time for a cup of tea and piece (or two or three) of chocolate…
