Update post #1

Hey Y’all!!!

Goodness gracious! I have had so much going on, but little time to post! It feels god to update and this is just my first installment of catch up posts to come. I think for this first month I was a bit in denial that the whole waking up early, doing homework and not going out as much on weekends thing was actually happening. It has been crazy busy this week and we had wednesday off of school, so it has been wonderful to lounge about, get some work done and be lazy in general!

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to get to see a broadway show courtesy of my school offering $20 tickets! Me and my roommate got ticket to see one of my all time favorite musicals

CHICAGO!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was fun and I may or may not have used jazz hands way too much when we left the theater.

After the show, we got a late dinner at a thai place I often pass that looked pretty cool. My food was pretty lackluster  (I blame the fact that we ordered right before the kitchen closed) but the interior of the restaurant/bar was pretty swanky!

I loved this giant chandelier in the restaurant.

Then on sunday we went to a baby shower uptown for a classmate of mine. (yes she is married and all that jazz and will be a wonderful mother)

Since she is a fellow design student, there was a sewing/craft theme for the shower. They put all different buttons on the stems of the glasses so you could tell which one was yours ….clever! right? and the individual french toast w/ syrup in the cups! great ideas all around!

The food was my favorite kind (brunchy) the zucchini bread was ridonculous to say the least.

In other foodie news, I have been quite the little baker this past week. I really needed to be doing homework, but felt hormonal, bored and overall in need of a great distractions so naturally I turned to cooking!

 

I made Apple Cinnamon Protein muffins to use up so many of our extra apples and even though I pretty much made up the recipe on the spot, I think they came out pretty good!

It also was an excuse to use the Halloween themed muffin cups and weird eyeball decorations I had lying around (I get really into holidays this time of year haha)

Apple Cinnamon Protein Muffins

1 C Oat flour (I just grind oatmeal in my blender)

2 scoops protein powder (vanilla)

2 medium apple chopped into small pieces

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp Baking Powder

2 tsp Cinnamon (and then another if you’re a cinnamon lover like me)

1/4 C Splenda (or you can use stevia, or sugar)

1 Egg

2 Egg Whites

1/2 C Applesauce

1/3 C Almond Milk

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

 

Well I do have so much more to update and look forward to showing yall more of my school shenanigans and projects! I recently spent a couple nights test dyeing fabrics. To say it was messy would be an understatement! ha! Well enjoy your weekend and I am mentally planning another update tomorrow.

tata and sleep well!
