Wow what a week so far. I’m so looking forward to sleeping in my bed (much needed!) after this week I had. We had a houseguest (remember Emily’s Chad?) come up for the weekend and I hated the fact that I couldn’t explore Guelph with them as I was stuck studying for my two midterms Tuesday (biomammalian physiology) and Wednesday (research methods). With those back to back, plus a typical weekly quiz and assignment due, I was a lil bit busy…
Oh the life of learning. When I get busy that is not an excuse to miss the gym. That is my sanity and stress release. Post workout stir fry in my new buddy (i.e. thermos life) with some nice company…ie my backpack before my second midterm yesterday.
Not to worry though, I rewarded myself nicely with this…
And baking! Did some pumpkin-a-fying last night (aka pumpkin rampage) because I apparently needed to get a baking itch that had been suppressed for way to long.
So what did the housemates get?
Amanda’s Flourless Pumpkin Muffins.
I made them in my bundt pan and added some dark chocolate in the middle. They loved them last year and loved them just as much last night. They are currently more then half gone over the past 12 hours…
Emily likes them…a lot :-D
She and Rita also enjoyed some good ol’ punkin and peanut butter oats in a jar as well because, well, if you open the pumpkin jar you mind as well just keep going right?
Well one OIAJ and one make shift OIAJ which just means a bowl that will have to be scraped with a hack saw to get the oatmeal off of it…
Don’t let oatmeal bowls go unsoaked my friends. You will be sorry if you do…
So onto this weekend, what are you all doing for Thanksgiving?
I’m grilling a turkey.
Hopefully it’s more successful then Mr. Bean’s first turkey attempt.
I’m wondering how cooking a turkey on the grill (i.e. rotisserie) will turn out.
…then again, grilled food is always better food, right?
So why am I worried?
Speaking about being home, do you ever have those stupid lil things that you get excited about when you go home and miss when you leave?
For me, there are some obvious ones..
My parents (…Mom if your’e reading this, this was not in any specific order and thus the grill is not before you :-P)
and the car
But then there are those that are just so silly it seems…
My parents fridge because it has an crushed ice maker.
Being able to buy and eat alllll the best food I want because I buy groceries… ;-) #Interest
So I’m thinking that since I have said car in my possession and a weekend where I’m doing virtually no school work (thanks for scheduling my midterms before the holiday for once!), I’m thinking of going to Square One on Saturday to squash a Lululemon craving
Solution: just shop there more often so that you don’t binge shop. Amirate?
Yes I have a craving for a store.
What that hasn’t happened to you?
You know what other inedible item I’m ‘craving’?
I think it might be these 4.0 Flyknit ones. All I know is that they are really snug to the foot…minimalist like just like my beloved vibrims
A pair of bright Nikes.
And I’m currently kicking myself for not asking the girl I have been shoe-stalking for the past month at the gym what type her Nik’s are.
Anyways this night has been a bit emotional for me (a post will come) so I’m gunna call it while we are still keeping it light and cheery.
One last thing though..
I have been asked to do a ‘grocery haul tips for student’ post by the lovely Laura.
Of course I will definitely do one and hopefully it can be beneficial to those students out there who are looking for some tips but inspire me a bit…
What specific tips are you looking for?
Shoppin on a budget?
Talk to me and I will make it up pronto.
Thanks to Amanda for letting me Think Out Loud on this Thursday.
