This was was crazy week! First, I just felt super busy with so many things to get done! School and studying (I had my first math TEST yesterday), too much blog work, trying to get ready for the expo this weekend, working on new recipes (I think I’ve made something with pumpkin every day this week!), okay, so basically it’s just school and blogging, but it’s a lot. You know what else was a bit sad. Now I love coffee, it’s been almost a year and a half since I started drinking it again (even though it kills me), and National Coffee Day was on Tuesday, right? Well, me, the biggest coffee drinker, has her busiest day on Tuesday and has no time to stop for or make coffee. I had NONE! Isn’t that the saddest thing? I made up for it with my pumpkin spice latte cookies and tons of coffee the next day though, don’t worry!
And what’s with the whole annual-October-hurricane/storms on the East Coast? Irene, Sandy, and now this one….I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have a massive snow storm than rain. Rain is so…gloomy. At least snow is a bit brighter 😉 What’s even brighter still is TGIF! So glad this week is over and no matter what happens next, it’s onwards and upwards! Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend (hopefully you don’t get flooded out…) xoxo
Wednesday: Roasted Hatch Chili & Jicima Salmon
