I took my last final Friday morning. After a grueling week of being held up in the library and stressing, it was so nice to finally be finished! Now all that was left was packing and waking up at 3:30 am Saturday morning to catch my flight. All that was standing between me and Texas was the dreaded packing… oh, how I despise packing… I do not know what it is about packing, but I always procrastinate until the very last minute. Help!
I had to make sure I got all of the essentials–Nikes, P90X, workout clothes, etc. Then, I woke up early and caught my flight! Before I knew it, I was back in Texas.
It is always a fantastic and much needed reunion with my puppies when I get home. I miss them so much when I am at school.
Because I came home on Saturday, I got to join my family for “Sushi Saturday!” Yummy!
I ordered a Veggie roll with brown rice and two pieces of Fresh Salmon Sashimi. Yummy, yummy! Sushi is probably a big part of why I cannot be a vegetarian–I love fish too much, hence my pescatarianism.
This morning for breakfast, I made Banana Nut Oatmeal with eggnog coffee from the Fresh Market. I enjoyed my oats while reading Food Network Magazine, it’s one of my favorites, along with Runner’s World and Women’s Health.
♦ 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
♦ 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
♦ 1/3 banana
♦ 1 tbsp chopped pecans
After breakfast, there was a mini road trip to none other than Buc-ee’s!
If you must ask, Buc-ee’s is a truck stop/gas station/rest stop/café/convenience store/home goods store/everything you ever wanted on a road trip plus more! It’s a Texas thing ;)
I picked up some Texas Trail mix and dried Okra.
