|My Valentine's Day decorations left over from undergrad care packages - those were the best!|
|My Valentine's cards - the star of the show being the Jonas Brothers card from my dad. I have a not-so-secret crush on them, particularly Nick.... this is an old picture - he's not THAT young anymore!|
|And it's a poster! Hahaha.|
|The best surprise! I got this package from my BFF Maryam and it totally made my week!|
After the gym I made myself a fun treat: iced coffee! I made some coffee on Saturday when I had to be at school at 8AM, but it didn't all fit in my travel mug, so I put the rest in the fridge.
|Put the chilled coffee in a glass, add some ice, and then pour in some almond milk.|
|Then admire the pretty swirling effect!|
|I added about 7 drops of liquid stevia (a plant-derived no-calorie sweetener), mixed it all up, added a pink straw for fun and festivity, and enjoyed my delicious beverage! Even if there is snow on the ground and it's not exactly iced coffee weather.|
Hope everyone is having a great Valentine's Day and that you all got some special treats. What's your favorite candy? Mine used to be Reese's eggs (the peanut butter to chocolate ratio is perfect and not having any hard edges like a normal Reese's cup makes it so much tastier!), but now they make Reese's pumpkins, Christmas trees, and hearts, too - I couldn't ask for anything more.
Song of the Day:
"Your Arms Around Me" by Jens Lekman. I discovered this song because it is on the soundtrack for Whip It - definitely one of my all-time favorite soundtracks. (And a great movie!)
