Hey everyone!! Sorry for the late update — it’s been a hectic day!
I was up and at ’em early (okay, I was up…but was I fully functional? no. 🙂 ), and then heard the buzzing of my phone, and the familiar ringtone I have for my school e-mail address….first thought — Class canceled??? Alas…no. haha He was going to be late (he totally should have canceled though, in my opinion 😉 haha). Either way, I was able to get ready and get out the door without rushing myself. I got my coffee (sorry no pics…although I’m sure by now, you are well aware of what my skinny hazelnut latte looks like), and ran into a friend who was in my class, and we caught up and whatnot while postponing going to class. It was lovely. We did eventually go to class though. haha
I got home from class, and I had to go get a few errands in really quickly. I picked up a present that really is for my mom, but it is meant to share obviously. I just wanted her to know just how much I appreciate what she has done over the last few months for me…driving me back to school after work, and picking me up and all that.
So THIS is what I got her:
It’s this lovely little cupcake shop around the corner from me called Sweet. It’s definitely not cheap and definitely not an everyday thing…but as a treat, oh yes. Perfect. I picked up a half dozen, and boy do they look delicious.
The flavors I picked were pumpkin with cream cheese frosting and a candied roasted pumpkin seed on top, and, my personal fave, red velvet with cream cheese frosting. You could pick as many flavors as you wanted…but I figured the simpler the better. These pictures really don’t do the cupcakes justice…I’ll have to get a better picture tomorrow when they are no longer in the box.
I’m excited for my red velvet!! haha Yes…I claimed cupcakes in my own gift to my mother — I knew she would not object. 🙂
Anyway, so it was around 1ish? at that point, and I needed to clean my apartment and eat some actual food…instead of just staring at beautiful cupcakes. 🙂
I made myself a yogurt mess with the usual players.
I honestly can’t remember if I ate anything else before dinner — I sure as heck didn’t photograph it…it was a hectic afternoon! In my evening class we watched part of the movie The Fog of War. I really liked it — it was interesting to hear almost “behind-the-scenes” convos of Presidents past…and just how…messed up war and government truly are. I can honestly say that I would never want to have to make the choices that not just US officials, but politicians everywhere have to make…sometimes there just is no right answer. I’m anxious to see the rest of it.
After class, I had plans to go to dinner with my mom. We went to Cafe Jaffa and it was delicious. I got the same thing that I did last time…the falafel and hummus plate. YUM! I also had some mango sangria. — just what I needed! 🙂
THIS time…I took a picture of my meal!!
I also got some -unpictured- JP Licks after that…. non-fat peanut butter soft serve frozen yogurt with some oreos on top!!!! Yumm…it was cold out but I was in heaven. Their yogurt is so good!!! I wish I had a picture…but it was too good to resist until I found my camera. haha
I’m officially on Thanksgiving Break! and ahh it feels good! I have stuff to do, but just the fact that I don’t have to drag my booty to class for the rest of the week is a weeeelcome change!! 🙂 Anyone else get a decent break this week??
What do you guys like to do when you get those rare moments of relaxation??
Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!!
Peace, Love and Munchies.
