Light my Sapphire!

I woke up yesterday and realized that my test was less then 24 hours away. A chemistry test that I hadn't even started studying for... Hence my breakfast was fast and boring:

A little grilled cheese sandwich... it looked so sad on my plate, all lonely... BOO

So I have this annoying habit, that when I study, and I mean really sit down and actually crack open a book, I have to be eating something. 
I get a very serious case of munchies... and yesterday the pantry was pretty empty :-(. 
My tummy kept grumbling, and I kept fidgeting.
My brain decided it was not going to start solving problems until it had some kind of an energy source...

I fed my needy body some apples and peanut butter. 
I love this stuff... you can say I'm a little obsessed over it.

Do you see my cool Valentines latte mug in the background???

Once I was fed, I tried to avoid actually getting started on Chem... 
There was a camera sitting next to me...
I took some random pictures

This is the top of the mug! I love hearts!
I also love the background on my laptop!

I finally got to some chem...
It was dreadful and painful
So I cheered myself up with some lunch

Left over breakfast tacos with some pico!
I let them sit on top of the Chem book to emphasize how much more important food is!!

Then I did about a 100 Chem problems and decided to take a little break! 

My hot pink nail polish was all chipped, and I wanted to get something fresh on my nails.
I was going to go with the obnoxious orange. 
It's a matte construction orange when painted on. 
However, I went with the blue-black in the background.

It's one of my favorite colors and is called Light My Sapphire.
(**NOTE** I am not paid for this, this is a personal product that I use, and am recommending it on my own)

I love when my nails are short and painted. 
I don't know why I spent so many years wearing acrylics...
In boring pearl French... BLAH

Another 100+ problems later, I was all Chemed out!
That's right, Chemed is a word! 

Dinner was some left over mash potatoes, a small breaded fillet of cod, and some of my mom's cabbage salad!
It was aHHHmazing!

Yup... That was my entire... day...

Today was even more boring...

I had a banana-strawberry smoothie for breakfast, after my test.
Which went okay...
I had a major craving for a smoothie so I stopped by the grocery store to get ingredients.
King Soopers had fresh strawberries on sale for $3.99 (buy one get one free)!!!

1 Banana
6 strawberries
1/2 cup of Almond Breeze 
3 scoops of vanilla ice cream ( I had to add something fatty and unhealthy ;-))

It was fantastic! I think I'll have another tomorrow!

I met my grandfather for lunch today, we had our traditional Tuna sandwiches, a cup of coffee and shared a cinnamon roll! 
It was fantastic, but I forgot to snap a picture of it.
You have to forgive me... I'm so new at this blogging thing, and my little brain was too Chemed out to try and remember. 


This was a work of art! 
I had time to cook up a whole meal!

We had grilled shrimp with wild rice
A side of steamed broccoli drizzled with olive oil and Parmesan cheese
And a side of fresh strawberries...

In case you were wondering, I have a love affair with strawberries!!!

So this was my catch up... See you all in the morning!
I am going to rest my exhausted little brain!!!  


  1. Science was never my strong point so I can totally understand your need to procrastinate!

    You eat so well my friend! I am suddenly motivated to put together some tasty combos like the shrimp...I just need to find some time. :)

    Gorgeous photos!

  2. Everything looks amazing! I can guarantee that there is nothing boring about the delicious looking items in this post.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Leave comments, questions or suggestions! They make me smile!
