2 more weeks BAAA-BB-AYYY

21 May

It’s Friday, It’s Friday!

       Who is excited? We are! Week 7 is crossed off. 2 more weeks. Ahh, we are almost there. Thank god this was the last full week though. Next week we have Thursday off for Graduation, and the week after that Monday off for Memorial Day. It is so crazy, we are going to be Seniors soon! Now it’s just time to get through finals, and History’s is a 40 min presentation on a Decade, and our group got the 60’s. I don’t think we’ll do good on that one. History is our only class together, and we got sucky people in our group, who do not know what is going on. So far we have nothing for our presentation, and we’re the first group to go next Friday. Just our luck! Right? This is the worst Final I’ve ever had to do. What has been the worst Final you’ve ever taken?

Thursday Recap- Today was the senior Exit assembly. So basically the whole school gets together, and we celebrate the Seniors leaving, then they go to Elitches, and we are bummed while heading back to class. Since the assembly took up like all of first period, we had an extended period making second period end later too. So instead of getting out at 10:45, we got out at 11:15. When we got home, we made lunch, and attempted to make homemade coconut butter! After lunch Whit was so tired that when we were hanging out in her room, she fell asleep. Then, I got bored and tired with no one to hangout with, so I decided to take a nap too. At about 3 our mom called, waking us up from our nap to tell us “Meet me at Albertson’s, so we can go Grocery Shopping together.” After we all went grocery shopping, we took a short walk around the neighborhood, and completed Level 3 of the 30 day shred. It was so HOTT outside, so something cold was the only thing that sounded good. We decided a HUMUNGO Green Monster with Rice Pecan Bread sounded Ideal. It was a long day that left no motivation for Homework at all. I managed to get a lot done, but Whit did not even to close to all the HW she had and went to bed. I think this week has really drained her. LOL.

 Today’s Recap-  We woke up to a new modified Coffee Oats! This one is called Strawerry(Cherry/strawberry) Mocha cappuccino Oats, using one of the lovely things we picked up yesterday. Bolthouse Mocha Cappuccino Juice was a recommendation Courtesy of TeenHealthFreak. Thanks girl, it rocks!

After that recipe worth breakfast, we headed off to school for a long 8 hrs of our day. While there, we accomplished a lot and therefore have hardly any HW. Go US! Some recipes I have been dying to try lately are Almond Joy Silken Cheesecake, Chai Tea Granola, and Banana Bars! Such great recipes, and when the time comes THEY WILL BE MADE ♥♥♥

      So far there are not too many plans for this weekend other than work of course. I cannot wait to have myself a White Chocolate Mocha tomorrow at work. Whoop Whoop!

 Since we finished off the Cocoa Package of these Somersaults, it was time to rip open the Sea Salt Flava!!!

 

 

 **Verdict- MMM, if you love sunflower seeds, or even salty chips these are the perfect replacement. They are healthy, low in fat, and chuck full of protein. I still am loving the chocolate ones the best, but these really get your salty craving.

Look what we came home to, A Generous and very Large package from Newman’s Own Organic’s!

 For an afternoon snack, we decided to try the Chocolate O’s and Cinnamon Hermit Cookie First.

 

 Chocolate Newman’s O’s:

  • Is not hydrogenated
  • Contains no trans-fatty acids
  • Is lower in saturated fat than butter and has no cholesterol
  • Is widely used in Europe as an alternative to partially hydrogenated oils
  • Is extracted from the palm’s fruit not the palms kernel
  • Can be grown organically in tropical regions
  • **Verdict- The taste is identical to a chocolate Oreo, but these are organic, and made from 100 X healthier ingredients. LOVE That!

     

    Cinnamon Newman’s Own Hermit’s:

    They are filled with delicious organic raisins and sweetened with organic molasses. These spicy, chewy cookies are said to have originated in Colonial New England.

    **Verdict- Woah, I have never gotten a baked cookie like this one from the store! These are amazing, so soft, chewy, and taste HOMEMADE. So far our Fav cookie till we sample the rest.

    ~So far the family is loving all of these goodies to try!
