coinstar is greater than i ever imagined

i wasn't going to blog today,
but i am just so excited!
there's been a jar of pennies in my room
for the past year or so.
today i decided to cash them in
(coin counting is free if you redeem for an itunes gift card)
thinking i'd get seven dollars tops.
well it ended up being $36.62,
and it made my day!

read at your own risk. i am not in the right state of mind to be blogging.

i will not be blogging tomorrow considering i have a packed day,
so i have decided to celebrate wordy wednesday today.
i want to start off by saying i should be writing my paper right now,
considering it needs to be finished within the next 45 minutes.
second, i don't like sitting down in a chair that is still warm
(or in my case right now, borderline hot)
from the last person who sat there, it freaks me out.
third, i think my all time favorite food is turkey sandwiches,
i eat them almost daily.
you really can't go wrong with a turkey sandwich,
and they always fill you up.
fourth, i never realized just how much work
goes into college student government campaigns!
i love love love the now party,
and i hope they all win.
fifth, my thoughts are still consumed with spring break.
i think that is why this post was so choppy and pointless.

spring break, where are you?

i've really been slacking on my posts,
but i've just been so busy!
the only thing on my mind
is how excited i am
to be on the hot beaches of mexico.
these next 4 days can't go by fast enough!

the oscars

brecken & kylee threw the cutest
oscars party,
complete with oscar-shaped sugar cookies,
treats galore
(my pictures don't do it justice),
and ballots to cast our votes!
i loved it.

these lick&stick gold stars
remind me so much of my childhood.
this picture takes me back
to my early days of crafting
and watercolor painting
at the kitchen table.
i wish i was as creative
as i used to be!

goodbye cadbury eggs

today begins my
no sugar/junk food diet
(considering i'll be on a cruise in 3 weeks).
this means i will not be eating
the hoards of great easter candy
that my mom and i bought the other day.
i guess i'll just be eating the grapes?

odd[est] craving

last night i was laying in bed
barely awake,in the stage
right before i typically drift off.
then out of the blue,
a breadstick popped into my head.
i could not get it out of my mind.
i have never had a drug addiction,
but i imagine it is something like i felt last night.
i tossed and turned for a good hour,
and could honestly not think of anything else.
my body literally ached for a breadstick.
if it had not been 2:00 am on a weekday,
i know i would have driven to a pizza shop.
i went to the kitchen
in feeble attempts to satisfy my craving.
a tortilla and cold pasta
were the closest things i could find.
to say the least,
i went to bed less than satisfied.
