I love getting mail! I’m sure this will change when I live on my own and most of that mail turns into bills and payments but for now I soak up the excitement of looking forward to packages and letters. The post man was very good to me today!
Time has been flying by lately. I cannot believe it is already the second week of the month, meaning its Chobani shipment time! I’m a part of their Chobani of the Month club where every month I receive a case of one of their flavors. It is definitely a monthly highlight as I eat a Chobani virtually every single day. Before taking it out of the box Diane guessed this month’s flavor would be blueberry while I guessed blood orange.
I was right this month! Ever since I tried a blood orange this past winter I’ve been wishing and hoping every single month that it would be the featured flavor. And then every single time it hasn’t been I’ve fallen in love with the featured flavor and ended up not missing the blood orange. Well this month I finally get to enjoy the blood orange! I already had one today in my oatmeal and it was so good! <3 I love me some Chobani.
I also got my free It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-in Product in the mail today. My hair has been in serious need of some TLC lately and this stuff works wonders. (I’m cheaping out and waiting to get my hair professionally colored and cut until I get my first real paycheck this summer.) I ran out of my last bottle so I’ve been wanting to stock up on it for a while and I figure what time is better than free right? Pampered Chef is running a promotion in partnership with Bloom where just for liking them on Facebook you get a $20 code to use at Bloom. You just have to pay shipping! All you do is like them on FB here and then create an account with Bloom here and voila, its shopping time! For the $18 bottle I only paid $5 and it was to ship it to me. You really cant beat it.
Speaking of things you can’t beat, birthday cake!! Birthday and wedding cake are two of my favorite treats. My dad just turned 59 so we celebrated with a strawberry ice cream cake from Brusters. They make the best ice cream cake I’ve ever had, and this is coming from a huge Carvel cake girl. The flavors are all so rich and fresh. I’ve been eating really healthy and got in a 50 minute pilates workout today so I didn’t feel guilty in the least for eating this. Its all about moderation in life, right? The thing I was not expecting was that I wouldn’t be able to finish the cake! I have a huge sweet tooth but I haven’t been indulging in too many sweets recently since I’m trying to be good and lose some weight. This cake was super sweet and way more dessert than I’ve been used to eating. I ate about half of what’s in the picture and then called it a day. That has got to be the first time I’ve ever not finished a piece of cake that’s in front of me. It was a good feeling!
Today was full of indulgences because I also got to indulge my Vitamix obsession! I made a mango, banana, and strawberry spinach smoothie with hemp protein and chia seeds. It was so good and so big and thick I ate it out of a bowl. I love knowing how literally everything in it is so good and healthy for you but it tastes like a regular fruit smoothie. There are a lot of these in my future.
And now its my bed time! I’ve got to drop my car off tomorrow morning to get the AC fixed and get the transmission fluid replaced. Here’s hoping it goes well! While my car is in the shop I have an appointment with my dermatologist to get the mole removed off my arm. I’m hoping it won’t be painful because after that I’m heading back to State College to celebrate the end of the semester with a night out dancing with Josh and friends! It should be a great time!
Question of the Day: What’s the best thing you’ve received in the mail lately?
