Now I've got clean clothes and all of my quarters are intact. Nice.
Aaaaand I grabbed some leftovers on my way out. I can't wait to have this amazing eggplant parmesan that our former neighbor made; it's unbelievably delicious.
While I was driving back to my place, going north, might I add, I passed this uncovered boat being trailered. Pretty sure it's not going to be boat season for a little while (just a hunch, seeing as how we were driving through snow and all).
I drove by Trader Joe's on the way to my apartment (well practically, I just had to go 2 minutes out of my way), so I stopped in to re-stock some new favorites: sunflower seed butter and almond butter.
There's a Lululemon in the same shopping plaza as TJ's, and I made my first purchase there today. I love that the shopping bags are reusable! So handy!
I got a "bang buster" headband. It looks purple in this picture but it's actually bright pink. It was either white or pink, and I think I made the obvious choice. While I was getting ready to work out yesterday, I realized that I needed to do something with my new bangs, and bobby pins and a flimsy headband weren't cutting it, so hopefully this will do the trick.
There happened to be an Anthropologie in the same plaza, too, so I stopped in to browse... but I couldn't pass up this adorable owl. It was only $3! I kind of have a thing for owls.
Good news: some of my magazine subscriptions are starting to expire. Bad news: I just subscribed to a new magazine. It was a LivingSocial deal, and I think it's pretty obvious by this point that I have trouble passing up a good deal. I know I shouldn't have, but I was pretty excited to get my first issue today.
Along with my salad, I had a juicy plum with my lunch.
It tasted like summer. If only...
I spent a lot of time in the kitchen today baking and preparing food. Next week is my spring break (woot!) and I'm going to DC and NYC. Can't wait!! I wanted to make some healthy snacks to take with me, and I've got a busy week ahead of me, so I did a lot of prep work today. I'll post the food I made throughout this week.
Since I had a late lunch and taste-tested my snacks throughout the day, I wasn't very hungry for dinner, but I did whip up something pretty tasty. I sauteed some bell peppers (red, orange, and yellow) and grape tomatoes in a bit of olive oil, then added 2 eggs (scrambled with rice milk, salt, and dried basil) and some spinach. Quick and easy but delicious and satisfying.
I had a good weekend but I'm kind of exhausted. I need to finish up some things for school and hopefully head to bed early-ish.
Anyone else have trouble resisting good deals like I do??
Song of the day:
"Swim" by Surfer Blood. I got to see them in DC and it was a great show. The lead singer is a prime example of how much hotter a guy can be by having an instrument and being on stage - it's miraculous, really.
