A Rather Blustery Day

Don't you just love Winnie the Pooh?! It was a seriously windy day today and I thought of his "rather blustery day" comment as soon as I walked out the door. Back track... lately I've been waking up in the morning absolutely ravenous. I started off the day with a yummy bowl of cream of wheat, pumpkin puree and frozen blueberries. Exactly what I needed to get me going. 

I was pretty much dreading classes today. It's not exactly ideal to start back to school with my long day after a 5 day weekend, but my classes surprisingly flew by. I got through my first class with a tumbler of peppermint tea. About half way through Negotiations I could feel my tummy start to rumble, so I was really excited when class got out early and I got to break into the dried fruit I had packed for my mid-morning snack. My two favorites are the dried mango and papaya...I could munch on these two all day! 

By the time my next class was over I was starving for some lunch. I walked to my 12:30 class and enjoyed my lunch during the 15 minute break at a table in the middle of the hall. 
Apparently I couldn't wait to take a bite. I had to break out my Real Simple to give me a little break from classes. My whole wheat, fiber bagel with laughing cow and peppered turkey was delicious!

I came across this article while reading...SPF 100?? Holy Moly, that's a whole lot of SPF! I will admit I'm a bit of a sun addict and have been known to frequent the tanning beds, so I'm not really an advocate of sunscreen, but I have learned to use it in the past couple of years. I'm sure my skin would love me if I transitioned from SPF 4/8 to SPF 100, but I'm not ready for that kind of shock yet. 
I also enjoyed a yummy Gala apple while reading up on the best beauty products. 

After a couple more classes I got to enjoy my favorite Pure Protein bar, S'mores, while I sat in yet another group meeting. Good thing it didn't last too long because I was ready to hit the gym! I got in a drenching 55 minutes on the elliptical and then joined the boys with the weights for some arm work. Do any of you girls ever feel awkward going down to the weight section of the gym? There are never any girls down there and I feel kind of weird lifting weights, but oh well...I am enjoying the new found definition in my arms, so I'll suck it up. 

When I got home it was all business. You should have seen my to do list today. I started it at 9:30 in my first class and it consistently grew throughout the day. I was thinking of going back to Dallas this weekend because my wedding dress is supposed to come in, but I think I'll have to wait til the next weekend so I can get some work done this weekend. I took a break from work around 7 to...drum roll please...PICK UP MY WEDDING INVITATIONS!!! I absolutely love them and am soo excited to send them out! I am still getting all of the save-the-dates out, but it won't be too long before the official invitations go out. 96 DAYS TIL THE WEDDING!! 

I ended the day with a fabulous date to get some Froyo with Megan. This is me and Meg on our snow day earlier this semester...

I freaking love this girl! 

We ended up going to pick her boyfriend, Lunden, up and I accompanied them on a trip to the grocery store. Nothing better than some good quality time with two of my very favorite people! 

Today was a "blustery" day in another sense of the word, so spending time with friends really did help end the day on a positive note. I'm pretty overwhelmed right now. I've been really stressed lately about jobs and school totally hit me hard today. I have a lot to get done in these next two weeks, but want to continue to pursue jobs as much as I can. I am soo interested in the event/wedding industry and nutrition/fitness industry and absolutely love details, planning and organization and want soo badly to find a job that fits. I know I shouldn't stress and I am trying my hardest to leave everything up to the Lord, but it's much easier said then done. I've always dreamed of being successful and I'm just yearning for that opportunity right now. Anyway, enough venting...the stress of all that is going on in my life started to get to me today, but good friends and good conversation definitely helped to relieve some of that. I hope everyone else had a fabulous Tuesday!!
