Hi! Happy Fri… I mean Thursday! Since it’s summer and all, my days are twisted up. Yes… summer! I had my final final at the early hour of 8:ooam today, and now I am officially done with my 3rd year of college – 2 mas anos! I’m really glad to have another semester behind me, as it was the roughest yet in many ways. I am happy the school year ended when it did because I’m tired of writing about this exam, and that exam… and I never want to write the evil word “O. Chem” again. I can imagine ya’ll are a bit tired of reading about my stagnant life as a student too. It’s time we add some spice up in here!
I’d say these steel cut oats added some sexy spice to my morning! My second attempt at steel cut left no room for complaints… each chewy spoonful was creamy, nutty and 100% hearty.
- 1 cup H20
- 1/3 c. [quick cook] steel cut oats
- 1/2T ground flax
- 1/2 itty bitty banana
- 2 organic strawberries
- 1T toasted pecans
- 1 tsp. honey
After a low-energy 60 minutes at the gym, I couldn’t wait to get home and organize for summer [a.k.a. rid my room of all things school related].
Bye bye, O. Chem!
This was the first semester I tried renting books. I have to say I will most definitely be doing this again, seeing as how I wasted a couple Benjamin Franklins on books that were never cracked open – ugh. I found that renting was significantly cheaper than purchasing a book [even used], plus you don’t have to keep them on your shelves to collect dust after you’re done using them… or not using them in my case. Have you rented anything for school before?

Tonight, my two roommates and I went to The Brewery for a celebratory dinner.
We dined outside under a canopy of greenery – it was a cool, yet comfortable Spring evening.
For me, wood-fired veggie Mexican pizza. It packed a spicy punch with a chipotle cream, peppers and caramelized onion, cilantro and cojita cheese –mmm! Unfortunately, no Pale Ale was enjoyed with my meal – uno mas mes!
Then we scootered across town to scout out a new fro yo joint – thank you GPS. I served myself a hefty portion of chocolate and coffee with dark chocolate chips – surprised? It was a quite lovely
Friday Thursday night out with the gals.

Now this is something that is surely adding a bit of spice to my summer! I’m in… I bought a ticket to the Healthy Living Summit 2010. Now I must find a j.o.b. pronto to get myself to Chicago. I am going to do my best to make the dream of a weekend come true. Six months into the blogging world, and my relationship is all or nothing! Are you attending the conference? I am so anxious to meet so many of my inspirations : )
What do you plan to do to add some sizzle ‘n’ spice to your summer?
Off to bed to rest my head. Ahhh, guess who gets to sleep in manana?
