Fri(e)day

April 29, 2011

Hello, loves.  It’s finally Friday.  But not just any Friday.  It was my last ever day of college

Something about writing those words makes me slightly nauseous, but I’ll save the heartfelt reminiscing for another day.

Let’s talk about happier times.  Like when I woke up at 3:50 AM to watch the royal wedding.  Or is it The Royal Wedding.  Something tells me an event like that deserves capitalization. 

My Totally Superficial Thoughts on The Royal Wedding

  • Kate’s dress was stunning
  • I hope I don’t have to walk up to the back of my balding husband’s head at my wedding
  • Prince Harry.  Nuff said.
  • Kate’s sister looked so lovely, but wait, here name is Pippa??
  • Why don’t we wear hats like that in the U.S.?

Around 5:30ish I decided I couldn’t possible wait another hour to watch their first kiss and went back to bed.  Despite the pretty accurate rant my teacher gave about the absurdity of the hype surrounding the wedding, I couldn’t help feeling happy as I watched it.  Hate if you want, but I’m such a sucker for anything that reminds us that there’s happiness in the world and weddings definitely do that Smile 

And breakfast with my mom and sister does that too.

We chose an old “favorite.”  In quotation marks because I actually don’t like The Huckleberry, but everyone else seems to.

Tea, because it felt right after watching the wedding.

I think this was lemon ginger.  Whatever it was, it was good.

002

A spoonful of sugar: aka honey.

003

I ordered the potato latkes and was surprised and irritated when I realized latkes are fried.  Something about starting the morning out with fried food just doesn’t feel right.

004

At least there was some spinach and oranges to balance it out, right?

005

My mom told me to take a picture of her cheese blintzes.  Which I’m pretty sure she told me to do last time too.

006

Don’t worry, I made up for my fried breakfast by eating lots of greens later in the day.

And greens are best in the form of a Green Monster.

007

Almond milk, banana, spinach, done.

009

And celery.

008

This empty chia seed container just happens to be the best serving dish for ants on a log.  I knew those $4 were worth it.

010

Weird Fact: I used to hate celery.  I mean, what kind of food requires more energy to eat it than it actually contains?  Just kidding, I don’t know if that’s actually true or just a myth but I do know I’m having a momentary love affair with celery.  Maybe it will pass and maybe I only love it because it helps get peanut butter to my mouth quicker, but whatever the case, bring on the celery!

And while we’re on that note, I seriously could not get this snack into my mouth fast enough.  I’m fairly sure I could down an entire Green Monster in one…sip?  Or whatever the equivalent to chugging is but with a straw.

Finishing up my Fri(e)day with a nice 5 miler and some trivia.  Bring on The Royal Wedding questions!

    Celery is the perfect excuse to eat WAY too much peanut butter and still feel pretty good,

    I loved the Royal Wedding. It was such a highlight of my day.

      Mine too, although going back to bed was a CLOSE second.

    I love the balding head comment- I was thinking the same thing!

    And yay for all of these healthy food photos, they’re definitely inspiring me to add more whole foods into my diet 🙂 🙂

    I confess: I wasn’t as hyped up about the Royal Wedding as everyone else seemed to be, either :X Don’t hate me!
    I go through phases with celery, too. I’ll love it for a little bit (want the crunch factor!) and then a couple days later be totally over it and not want it again for months. I love it chopped up into grain salads and stuff, though!
    Last day of college…you made it!! Congrats 😉 Enjoy your weekend!

    Kate looked gorgeous…and while I wasn’t overwhelmed by her dress when I first saw it, it grew on me as I saw more photos of it, and now I think it was a fantastic choice for her. Just lovely….wedding are the best!

    I think PB is an excellent tool for eating PB 😉

    As for the wedding, I only caught the recaps, but it did look so lovely!

      I can’t decide if that’s a typo of if you’re telling me peanut butter is best when topped with peanut butter. If that’s what you mean then I agree!
