Change of Plans

A few things have changed since the last time I wrote. I was saying how stressed out I had become because of my job. Well after getting another lifeguard position in a different community, I resigned from my job that I had been working at for the 5th year now. It was hard for me to do this but knew it would be for the better. I’m loving my new job already & I’ve been happier and less stressed out πŸ™‚

Here’s what I get to look at every day:

I can get used to this πŸ˜‰

So what else have I been up to? Not too much.. haha Laura & I went to a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Yankees game over the weekend!

Baseball games are always a fun time! The 2 of us have been going to these for forever now. We always move our seats throughout the game & go sit by the bullpen to creep on the pitchers πŸ˜› No shame.

There’s a new Plato’s Closet in Dickson City so I took a trip up there this weekend. I saw these pants:

….? Who would wear these? haha There are some strange clothes in the world. These remind me of the Spice Girls.

I watched The Bachelorette for the first time last night and let me just say I HATE BENTLEY!!!!!! I was freaking out at my TV. He is pathetic and a horrible person. That is all I have to say… haha

I don’t have work today so my mom and I are going to do some shopping!! Hopefully I can find some cute stuff. There are a limited amount of stores to choose from in the mountains… but we make do!

Hope everyone has an awesome Tuesday!! πŸ™‚

Oat Bran Pancake

Happy Saturday everyone!! I guess the world isn’t going to end today after all πŸ˜›

Day 5 of Dukan and I’m still happy! Yesterday was my first day of the Cruise Phase so I was able to add some veggies to my meals!

But let me tell you about the best recipe I found for an oat bran pancake! Since you need to have oat bran daily on this diet, I was looking for a new way to incorporate oat bran into my diet because I was sick of mixing it into yogurt. Honestly, I thought an oat bran pancake would taste terrible, but I was oh so wrong!!

The oat bran recipe calls for:

1 egg white

2 tablespoons of plain, non-fat yogurt

2 tablespoons of oat bran

and splenda/sugar substitute to your liking

That’s it!! Mix it all together and put it in a pan! (I also added a bit of cinnamon!)

I didn’t get to snap any pictures of the finished product because I dove right into it!

It was DELICIOUS!! Who knew?!

I was super excited for these babies last night as well:

I missed my veggies! I really appreciated them more after not having them for so long (even if it was only 3 days) πŸ˜›

Today is a pure protein day. I am doing the 1-1 plan: every other day is a protein/veggie day. I feel like this is the best plan for me!

Today is starting out dreary.. AGAIN. I’m praying that the sun comes out for a little while today! But I won’t get my hopes up :/

I was supposed to work today, but now I think the plans have changed and I will work during the week. My mom and I might be doing downtown later to an Arts Festival! Annnddd I might be hanging out with friends I haven’t seen in 1 1/2!!!! So I’m hoping today turns out to be as fun as I think it will be πŸ™‚

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!! And I hope everyone is having better weather than I am!! haha

What is one vegetable that you cannot live without?

I’m Back!!!

Gaahhhhh it has seriously been wayyyy too long since I’ve been on here! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA 😦 Life has been pretty crazy lately! This week is finals week and last week I spent a lot of time with my friends before we all leave for the summer.

Last Thursday was FOTO formal!! FOTO is a student organization that is involved with THON. THON raises money and awareness all year long for the fight against pediatric cancer. I should definitely write a post about this some time. Check out the FOTO and THON websites to get more information!

But back to formal: it was a blast!! It was nice to get dressed up and dance all night long!

(Anybody else get mad red-eye in their pictures? It’s so annoying always looking like a demon-freak!)

Friday was also a pretty good day! I finally got to hang out with my close group of guy friends, for a little bit at least! Laura, Jess, & I went over to their place to hang out and have a little pregame before Movin’ On! Movin’ On is a yearly music festival that happens here at Penn State at the end of Spring semester. And it’s free! I have had a great track record with my Movin On experiences. Freshman year Asher Roth (the guy who sings “I Love College”) came, and the last thing I remember is being in the front row. Let’s just say it was a lot of fun πŸ™‚ Last year I really don’t remember what performers were here. I just know that I had to go back to my friends dorm to down a water bottle of tequila because they weren’t allowing any type of containers in at the concert. So that said, last year was fun haha

This year Little Big Town, Lupe Fiasco, and O.A.R. performed. I didn’t make it to see Little Big Town but Lupe and O.A.R. were amazing!! It was kinda chilly and kinda wet outside, but my friends and I had a great time!

Saturday the sun was shining so it was only fitting to go on an adventure with Danielle, Laura, and Emily! We went to TJ Max, the Dollar Store, & Sheetz for some yummy, unhealthy fries πŸ˜›

My friends and I are kind of strange and we like to do weird things so we bought some fun stuff at the Dollar Store to play around with. We got leis, grass skirts, and………

MARV!!!!!!!!!!!

Marvin (Marv for short) is a new addition to our family. Such a fun little monkaaay!

Last night was CRAZY! As I’m sure everyone knows, Osama Bin Laden has been killed. This caused such big burst of emotion in downtown State College.

This was the scene outside of my apartment building last night. My apartment faces the back, but Danielle’s is right on the main road downtown. A ton of us went to her place and hung out on her balcony to be a part of celebration! PSU had so much USA pride and spirit last night. It was definitely an amazing feeling to have so many people come together to support our country! God Bless our military for everything that they do πŸ™‚ You guys are seriously amazing!

The past week and weekend have been so wonderful! I definitely took time to enjoy life, the sun, the warm weather, and my incredible friends. That being said, I slacked on the studying part. But I don’t regret one bit the time I spent with the people I love!! ❀

My first final was today, and I really have nothing to say about it…… haha 😦 major sad face time! I have 4 more through out the week, but they’re pretty spread out for the most part which is very good.

I’ve also made some food that I want to tell ya’ll about but this is getting very long and I have to go do some studying! I’m glad I got the chance to blog tonight πŸ™‚ The past week or so has felt so weird not writing or reading my favorite blogs! I can’t promise a lot of posts this week, but I’m gonna try my hardest!

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

How do you find the time to blog when life gets a little busy?

Easter Eggstravaganza

Happy Easter to those who celebrate!! I hope everyoneΒ is enjoying their time with family and friends. I know I sure am!

This was the first holiday without my family. I was pretty upset that I wasn’t going to be home with them, but my roommates and friends made it an extremely great weekend!

Friday night I tried to make my own version of Gracie’s Tomato Chickpea Casserole. Let me start off by saying canned spinach is the worst thing in the world! Definitely need to stick with frozen!

It looks pretty good, but the spinach ruined it big time. Now I know for next time.. frozen > canned.

Yesterday my roomies and I dyed Easter eggs!!! πŸ™‚

When my mom came up during the week she brought us an Easter egg dying kit! I was super excited that I was still able to dye eggs even though I wasn’t home. Britt, Laura, & I had some good roomie bonding!

Laura and I went to the bars both Friday and Saturday night. We met up with a bunch of our FOTO friends and had a blast! We didn’t get to bed until almost 5 am last night (..this morning?) so I’m super tired to say the least.

We had an early Easter lunch/dinner.

Tons of yummy food! I ate wayyyy too much today, but it was all too good to pass up πŸ™‚

The 3 of us have been pretty lazy today. We’re just hanging out and watching Step Brothers! I’ve never seen this movie in its entirety so I’m gonna stop writing and start paying attention! πŸ˜›

Did you do anything fun for Easter?

Sunday Funday


Blue & White weekend was a success!


wannabe gangstas

me, Angie, Laura, & Jess

tailgating!

Tailgating was tons of fun despite the torrential rain. It poured pretty much the entire time, but that didn’t stop us! The crazy amount of rain made for extremely muddy fields, though.. which led to this:

Woops!!

Since I had a little too much fun this weekend, today has been a pretty chill day. I slept in and bummed around. Danielle needed to go to the mall so Laura and I tagged along. We got lunch at Sheetz and it was delicious! I got a turkey hoagie with honey mustard. Yum yum yummmm love me some honey mustard and turkey! πŸ™‚

Afterwards, we went to Big Lots aka coolest place ever! Everything is so cheap! I got some really yummy cheesedoodles for $1! And Danielle decided to take a little siesta on the comfy recliners:

ZzZzZzZzZz

When the 3 of us get together things get a little crazy =P

Now we’re all just hanging out in my apartment and trying to find motivation to do work. I have some studying to do, but procrastinating is my middle name! Trying to work on that though..

so true ❀
