It's Hot!'s been hot lately. It's been in the upper 80s the last few days, and the next few days are forecasted to be in the 90s! It's crazy; it's May-not late July. Global warming, eh? How's the weather treatin' you all? Nice, sunny, and slightly less hot than here, I hope.

Anyways, I've been really busy since my last post. Okay, maybe I'm over-exagerating. Let's say I have been moderately busy since we last spoke. You have to understand that I am a college student and it's summer. My definition of busy is a whole lot different than lets say a mom of four who has a full-time job. Okay, okay, enough rambling....what have I been up to?

Well, let's back track to friday morning. I was planning on sleeping in, but one of the local schools called me and wanted me to sub in the A.M. for preschool. I was thinking about turning the shift down because I had been been up late watching Grey's and Tivo-ed Marriage Ref being productive, but preschoolers are just so dang cute! The extra cash is also a perk. I ended up dragging my behind out of bed at 6am (after five hours of sleep) and subbed all morning for cute little preschoolers. They were ADORABLE! I don't think I want to teach preschool once I get my degree (heck, my degree isn't even in early child ed.), but I definitely think I want to stick to the younger grades.

After subbing, I headed downtown with my best friend. We got creemees (my stomach did not approve),  walked down by the waterfront, and did some window shopping. Afterwards, we headed back to her house and spent the afternoon soaking up the sun. I really wanted to go out with my friend and her sister for dinner and a movie, but unfortunately, I had therapy. On a friday night???? I know, ri-freakin'-diculous! Oh, the lengths we have to go to let Ed know he isn't welcome in our lives...

Saturday morning, I finally got to sleep in after a week of waking up at the break of dawn to sub and go to appointments. I think my body had gotten used to waking up early, though because I ended up waking up at quarter to seven....sigh. After having breakfast and lazing around for a while, I went to the farmer's market downtown with my mom. I didn't end up buying anything, but it was nice to stroll from vendor to vendor, soak up the sweet summer late May sun, and chit chat with my momma. On the way back from the farmer's market, we stopped at Starbucks, and mi madre oh so kindly handed me five buckaroos, so I could get one of these babies:

Right when I got home, my dad asked me if I wanted to go on a drive with him (to the middle of nowhere), so he could purchase one of the only IPad's left in the state. Oh, men and there electronics. Since I had nothing better to do, I agreed. I had to pack lunch for the road, though, because hey, a girl's got to eat! Two hours later, my pops and I returned, IPad in stow.

I wasn't even home for ten minutes before the phone rang. It was one of my besties calling me up, asking me if I wanted to chill. Of course, I accepted her offer. I ended up going over to her house and hanging out with her and another friend. I then went to church with her family. We went to a Catholic service. I'm Lutheran, so it was a little different than my usual service, but it was very nice and meaningful, nonetheless. Afterwards, we went back to her house and had pizza. Knowing that my belly doesn't like dairy and pizza has lots of cheese, I brought some lactaid with me. Dumb ol' me, though, forgot to take it until afterwards. My stomach wasn't very happy with me after the pizza. It was all good, though, we just ended up sitting around, listening to music, and reminiscing about good times. Oh, I love my friends!

Sunday, I went mini golfing with my mom in the morning. Yes, I know I'm twenty, but a girl can have fun, right? My mom then took me grocery shopping, and I got lots of essentials. I spent the afternoon sunbathing and reading The Last Song. The ending is really sad by the way : ( I had plans to go for a walk on a nature trail, but she was too tired after a 35 mile bike ride. What a lazy bum! I'm just joking. She is actually one of the most tenacious, dedicated people I know. Sunday night was spent with the 'rents watching Valentine's Day. How was it??? Eehhh, it was okay. I thought it was funny and cute, but I personally felt like there were two many stories going on. The movie lacked depth. On the flip side, there was some nice eye candy in this movie--Patrick Dempsey, Taylor Lautner, Eric Dane, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Bradley Cooper....oh yea, major perk!

This morning I woke up early again to do what else? Sub...of course! Today I subbed for 8th graders. It was actually kind of a boring day. I basically just watched over study hall all day. Most of the 8th graders were respectful, but a comment from one student kind of ticked me off. When he came in, he asked me, "You're the sub?". After I told him I was, he refuted, "but you're like 12". Try twenty actually! I know I look young, but 12, seriously? 

After subbing, I came home and helped the mama in the garden for a while, showered, and played some wii with my dad.

As you can see, I have been "moderately" busy. I'm sure you are sick of me talking, though, so here are some food pics that have accumulated over the past few days. Okay, scratch that. My phone is being dumb and won't send all the lovely pics I have on it. I have a few pics from my computer but not many. Sorry guys : (

Typical Breakfast Yogurt Mess-pre mixage

Tried this bar..didn't like it. It's trans fat free, cholestorol free, dairy 
free, and gluten free. Oh yea, it's also taste free!

I'm off to watch Little People Big World and the premiere of The Bachelorette. Even though there are more guys to gawk over on The Bachelorette, I personally prefer The Bachelor. It just seems more real and sincere. Which show do you gals prefer?

Have a good night y'all!


  1. I actually don't wait either- I'm a Hill fanatic! I know that show is so trashy but I love it. Also that 8th grader sounds so rude! I have subbed for a preschool class before but they thought I was soo old (I'm not- only 20) it was kind of funny.

  2. I haven't watched much of the Hills, but I have been watching the City, which is a spin off of the Hills, and I love that show : )
