Today is only Monday and the past 3 days have been filled with so many exciting things!!

The Disney of Grocery Stores!!

What a wonderful grocery store experience for everyone who goes!! What kind of grocery store do you go to and get greeted by the mascot!! :)

The rice cakes are sooo yummy here! Not like any other rice cake I have tasted.

And they make them fresh in the store. The machine in the picture below shoots them out!

The meat section has a singing butcher on top. All the kids in the store were just so smiley and happy!
The Poland Spring tree!!
The meat singers above the meat section :)
The singing head of a cow! A mom was using this moment to teach her child the cow sound! It was cute.

The singing chickens, right next to where I tasted some amazing naked chicken!
The button to get the banana to sing.

Not only did she sing, but she did a little dance!

Look at all of the apples and how yummy they look!! All of there fruit is sooo amazing and sooo fresh!!

What good is a store without red velvet cupcakes!! Even though I love love red velvet cupcakes I opted out of this purchase and bought strawberries and oranges instead.

Overall a fun trip!! If I am ever in NY again I will definitely stop by! This is for sure a grocery store to visit once in your lifetime!!

Other happenings this week

I am packing up my room .. so sad BUT soooo exciting!!

All of my clothes have been taken out of my closet because I have to mail some home and ship some home in my car. I don't know what to do with all of my pink, black, and white hanger!

The weather was so beautiful this week!! We were able to go to the park and swing and just have fun!

This turned over toy just signals the start of spring! It makes me sooo excited!!

The trees are turning green and life is growing since the snow is starting to melt!! I am oober excited fro spring and the Tulip Festival!!

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

I somehow got lost in my days of pictures, but I know that I have taken some every day this week. I took some of the smurf because my room was dirty .. hehe

The eggs I kind of burnt because I was too busy on the computer ..

and the treadmill I did momentarily but the computer usage I did for over an hour! {eek} Yes, that is a treadmill in my living room that I use .. almost never!! But I have already given myself a pep talk about getting back on track tomorrow. I want to lose 10 lbs by graduation, so I have 8 weeks! I was also running 1 1/2 in December and can now barely do 2 minutes!! I need to change that ASAP!!

The past few days in pictures ..

I forgot where I last left off in my picture extravaganza :) but here are the ones I have taken. I just havent been able to blog because this paper has CONSUMED my life!! I am so excited to go to bed on time tonight and to be able to wake up and work out!!

Friday night this is the time I shut my book from working on this project. Ick!! I probably didn't fall asleep until 5am.

I have to put a dark blanket over my window so that I can sleep in the morning. If not the light shines through my window and I wake up way early. Don't mind that it's zebra!!

Saturday I worked on my project some more!! All day to be exact. This is the book that is consuming my life!

And today, Sunday I packed a little. Since I am shipping a lot of my stuff back to Texas I want to start mailing it now - and this is the first box! My pots and pans!!

I am finally done with my paper and I am forever thankful that I made it to today!! It was lots and lots of hard work, but only 1 more individual one and one group one until the semester is over!! And then graduation!! woo hoo!!

Trip to Harlem

So I got up this morning and put on my nice clothes to go to the WIC clinic and do a listening group for participants in Harlem. What's a nice outfit without nice shoes? Zebra shoes!!

And who wears zebra shoes without little miss mismatch socks?!

It took us oh about 4 1/2 hours to get to the site we were going to when it should have taken only 2 1/2. There was lots of traffic, people double parked! {How does this even work when the other side wants to get out?}

Parking garages where we couldn't find attendants ..

And where we were eventually told it was full :/

Through all of this while in the car I was able to get some pictures of the wall art {or what others may call graffiti}

What a beautiful place filled with so many different people. Although I may not want to live in the city I would love to make a yearly visit! We didn't end up going to the best grocery store of all times, but we are scheduled to go their next week Friday!! So I'll have pictures then! Off to work on my paper!!

Random Shopping Trip

This is what I purchased on my sporadic trip to the grocery store tonight. I went to school to work on my project and the school closes at 11 so I went to the store after that. I only went there for starburst jelly beans but bought a few other things too!! Hehe!! :)

So in March

For the month of March I have decided to take a photograph everyday that tells about me and my life. I don't know if I will really take a picture everyday, but I sure am going to try. So here's todays pics!

So I'm normally a lot cleaner, but school has overtaken my life and packing has as well. Hopefully after my paper is turned in I can clean up a little! Haha!!

Snow Day and Hair Day

One wouldn't think you could sit and watch a plow for 30 minutes, but I sure did. It was pretty entertaining actually! Haha and it allowed me to diverge my mind away from what it needed to be doing. {Kind of like right now when I should be writing a competitor analysis I am writing a blog post on hair and snow plows} .. but anyway.. back to the story. It was pretty loud and there was a lot of snow for him to plow.

The next day I decided I would take my hair down. I started at like 6pm and didn't finish until 1:52 am! Yikes!! This is again another point in time where I should have been working on this project but instead I decided to work on my hair! Oh life!!

Then I had to brush out my hair! Yikes was it time consuming and you would think I lost like 1 lb in hair based on the picture below - but after a trip to the hair salon my hair is back to normal after a good deep conditioner and straightening.
