There’s Just Something About Color…

Today was definitely not the Spring day I was hoping to have for my birthday, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. :)  I am INSANELY busy as I mentioned in my post this morning, but it really was nice to have that extra special something (meaning my birthday) to keep me motivated today!

I had a field trip to an Art Museum for my Design Studies class this morning to study paintings for their color qualities, and continued the “color” theme into my lunch! 🙂

I decided to put together a smorgasbord of delicious, colorful eats:

  • organic cauliflower
  • organic baby tomatoes
  • Trader Joe’s edamame
  • organic baby carrots
  • rice crackers
  • light activia



With a glass of unsweetened almond milk.


There’s something about a colorful meal that makes it THAT much more appealing!  I love knowing that I’m getting in so many healthy nutritional components all in one meal.  And it obviously helps that they’re all foods I love and totally delicious. 😉

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes today! 😀









Sweet 19

Yes, today is my 19th Birthday! 😀

This is also the busiest week of my college life as of yet.  I have 1 exam tomorrow, 2 exams on Monday, and a 10-page essay due on Tuesday.  Somehow Birthday + Insane College Workload don’t fit together all that well. 😉

That said, I’ve never been one to have big parties or hit the town all night, so I’m pretty satisfied with laying low-key and having a relaxing, productive birthday.  A friend texted me last night and is taking me out to get my version of a “birthday cake” – Starbucks – this afternoon, so it will be great just to catch up with him and take my mind off the stress of school!

My mom also sent me a beautiful card in the mail from her and my dad:


With lottery cards – my mom’s usual card stuffer. 😉


I actually won $2 on one of the cards!!!  Birthday luck I suppose! 🙂


My mom is also letting me pick out a few things from Lululemon when school calms down and I have time to enjoy a shopping trip to the Lululemon showroom in Madison.  LOVE Lululemon!!!



Now backing up to Yesterday

Breakfast – Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs topped with organic raw sunflower seeds and organic almond milk with an organic banana on the side.



It was DOWN POURING all day, and of course I don’t own a umbrella.  Therefore, walking 2 miles to my Geology class and 2 miles back left me DRIPPING wet!  I promptly went to Walgreens and amended my lack of umbrella after learning my lesson the hard way. 😉

Pre-afternoon classes snack:  Organic kiwi, organic pear, Trader Joe’s organic Greek yogurt, and a Gingerade Kombucha.


Post-classes COLORFUL snack:  Organic Blueberries, Organic baby carrots, Trader Joe’s Edamame, and a glass of unsweetened almond milk.






Have a fabulous Wednesday (and my Birthday ;)) everyone!!!

Question:  Are you a “big party” type when it comes to birthdays?
