So I got my package from Angela today!!!! yayyy Β i have my honest foods country squares πŸ™‚ I tried the chocolate peanut flavor as soon as i got into my car. it was so good!! i ate half of it, and saved the other half for my dessert. Thank you Angela, this was such an awesome giveaway!


I had some more spaghetti squash tonight for dinner. I had the same thing pretty much, zucchini, artichokes, mushrooms, and some marinara but this time I added some low fatΒ mozzarellaΒ and it became a creamy masterpiece! I am so happy I found out about spaghetti squash because now i want to try so many other recipes with it. I”m thinking a pesto combination will be next on the list.Β 

spaghetti squash

Before I left for my little road trip, this girl was giving me the biggest puppy eyes. shes going to miss me πŸ˜‰


The drive to Virginia Tech was a long one. I started getting realllllllllly sleepy so i dropped by mcdonalds and got a coffee. It was nasty though, probably because it was late, and the coffee wasn’t fresh. But hopefully their coffee is better in the mornings because for the month of February Mcdonalds is having a promotion on their McCafe menu and every morning of the month from 5-8 AM you can get a free medium drink. You can choose anything from their menu too.Β Cappuccino, latte, hot chocolate, coffee, etc.Β 

So tonight when I got into my sisters place, I get all my stuff situated and then planned on Β telling her about my blog. I start off saying “so…. i wanted to tell you about something that i started up….”

and she says “omg i know! I read your blog everyday!!”

hahahaha. she said she found my blog up on my computer when she was home for winter break, and was reading it, and thought it was just a random website. She saw the picture of the dinner, and was like… hm thats weird, we had the same exact dinner the other night! and then looked closer, and was like, wait those are our placemats! She said then she read the whole blog from the beginning and keeps up with it daily! how funny πŸ™‚ i’m so relieved that she loves the blog and i told her she can comment now, and shes so excited! she also has found all of your blogs through all of your messages and loves reading all of them! she says it helps keep her motivated in school and now she wants me to make her some of the meals i’ve been eating. shes’s especially interested in the morning OATS! can’t wait to show her my new skills.Β 


Tomorrow morning i’m planning on going to her community gym and getting on the treadmill. She also says theres a health food store by her place, and we’re going to check it out. hopefully i find some new goodies πŸ™‚ and then off to NC we go! Hope you all have a great Friday!!

    LOL, that’s hilarious. My parents were like that, reading my blog for a long time without me realizing it. I guess I did post it as my “website” on facebook.. But ya it’s nice to have family read it too I think!

    Have a great trip!

  16. February 6, 2009 1:02 pm

    That’s so funny your sister already knew! I get paranoid by the thought of people finding out on their own..haha. I’m glad she’s a big fan of yours though!
