Guilty Pleasures

Hey, bloggies! I've missed ya today!

Since Summer A session of classes started today, I feel like I've been missing out, since I haven't been attached at the hip to Twitter and blogs all day! It's going to be a long 6 weeks, but I think I can pull through it, though I will miss your updates terribly! Can you say addict??

First of all, check out this amazeballs (my new word, thanks Giuliana Rancic,) that my aunt made for Mother's Day! She even made the chocolate that was on top of it- it was a beach themed cake (with sugar sand, no joke) and she made shell- and seahorse-shaped chocolates!

Holy yum! There's some in my fridge and I am trying soooo hard to ration it:) We'll see how well this turns out! To me, cake it where it's at and I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

That beaut's probably not gonna last til Friday;)

Since summer classes started, I eat on the go like no one's business. Between running to the gym (for another Body Combat session! LOVE those classes- I left drenched again:), then driving back to my apartment, running from class to class and then getting your "normal" day-to-day stuff done, it's busy!
I love it because I can feel myself getting back into loving school. Spring was kind of an off semester for me, so I'm more than ready to dive in head-first now! I love learning, and I hope that never dies.
I had 4 of these bars today and am finally eating real food. What are good on-the-go foods besides granola bars? I think I might bring some dried fruit along with me, but I know y'all will have some good ideas!

My planner is still blank, as my "hard class" will only be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This time period is definetly the calm before the storm. I predict next week will bring on exams and lots o' work quickly!

When I was buying my Rock and Roll in American Society (no joke, that's the class- it isn't a breeze, but the subject matter is awesome! We watched a movie that had the love of my life, Steven Tyler, in it- awesome!) I picked up this self-help book from the genius matchmaker, Patti Stanger, of The Millionaire Matchmaker.

I am geniunely surprised and impressed by this book. Sure, it will be a quick read, but it wasn't designed for gold-diggers- Patti even talks poorly about the subject! I am by no means looking for a millionaire, but I would reccommend it to anyone who has had a hard time getting over an ex or if you've recently been through a tough breakup. Have you ever read a self-help book?
Moving on:)
Have you heard these songs? These are my theme songs right now- and they're all over the place!
The Glee Cast's version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" - check out this video! Amazeballs:)
Carrie Underwood's new single, "Undo It" (Great for runs:)
Drake's "Over" - everyone loves the I'm doing me part, right!?

Hope you guys have a great Monday night! I'll probably be reading Patti's words of wisdom and watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey... such a guilty pleasure! What are yours?

    So glad you're loving school. It's a good feeling, isn't it? Learning can actually be fun?!I think wraps are great on the go food, as are anything homemade (bread, muffins, etc). I also like roasting almonds and combining them with Kashi cereal.
