Friday Facts #8- Classes, The Weekend, and Not Much Else

Bonjourno my little pizza pies! Happy Friday to you all. This week I started school, the house got sold (fingers crossed everything works out) and my cleanse from peanut butter is still going…. Much to my displeasure. I am also getting butter all over my computer whilst I eat toast. Maybe not such a grand idea to eat toast and type a post. Oh well. It’s still tasty and I need to hurry up and finish this post before I leave.

SOOOOOO….

School. It’s good. I’m learning and meeting new people and becoming an erudite (scholar for those who’ve not read the Divergent series which is probably all of you). So far my favorite class is English (no surprise there) and Math (BIG SURPRISE BECAUSE I AM TERRIBLE AT MATH). But I won’t bore you  with my academics. Let’s talk about food.

My newest obsession? Baby triscuits. They’re easy for me to pour in my lunch bag, easy to snack on, and easy to eat. Which may spark problems if I’m absolutely ‘famished’ after school.

Another yummy thing that resides in my tummy:

Smoothies! I’m late on the bandwagon with this one but I’m really hoping on making some fall inspired recipes soon (including pasta fagoli that tastes just like Olive Garden’s!) and maybe I’ll throw in a pumpkin pie smoothie or something creative like that.

This weekend is all relaxation for the most part (besides a few assignments I am free!) so I’ll be sure to post a Most Wanted post on either Saturday or Sunday including recipes, workouts, and links!

Like it says in the title, there’s not much else going on. So I will leave you with some pictures to stare at.

MIMM #9 Classes, Smoothies, and Such

Hey Y’all! Happy Monday night. I promise I’ll start to get my posts published earlier but what with Student Body projects and getting my schedule for this year’s classes, today was a bit of a late one. Oops. I’ll be trying to get my posts typed up the night before, then posted in the morning. So that is the plan! 

Speaking of school, I start Wednesday! Which makes me both nervous and happy. I’m excited for the new people and the new classes and the new subjects. I’m taking the basics (English, Maths, AP History, Chemistry) but I’m really excited for Fashion Construction! I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it, but I have a small fashion/beauty/Carrie Bradshaw obsession and therefore squealed when I found out about getting into a class where we design and wear our own handmade clothes. I’m happy to say the least. 

So let’s talk weekend, hmm? 

After my beach retreat, I headed home, ate some deep dish pizza (after not really eating much all day) and hit the hay. The next day my family hosted a poker/pool party and I relaxed with some friends and watched Beautiful Creatures with a plate full of low-fat sliders (my creation thank you very much), my guacamole, some crudités, and a couple little baby brownies. YUMMMMMMMMM. Sunday was relaxed. I drew a bit, did some cleaning, ate, and watched the last episodes of Shark Week. See you next year, Sharkies! And now tomorrow is Tuesday. My last day of freedom. I intend on watching Netflix, maybe working out, and finishing some little things here and there. 

But hey, I promised a smoothie! Here’s my new fave:

Tropical Smoothie

Serves: 1

What You’ll Need:

2 cups frozen tropical fruit (I used a target brand frozen pack of peaches, pineapple, banana, and mango)

1/4 cup plain yogurt

1/4-1/2 cup milk of choice (really just enough to get everything moving)

What You’ll Do:

1. Put all ingredients in a blender and puree!

2. Enjoy with a spoon and a smile.
