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! 😀

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! 🙂
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?
