Spill It Sunday – VLOG

Hello everyone!

Tonight I felt like doing a vlog so I pulled out my laptop and made one 🙂

I just started my internship today so I share a little recap of my first day. Also, I answered some fun questions from Arman’s Spill It Sunday survey (with Sarah from Slices of Sarah Pie).

Spill It Sundays

Questions answered:

    1. What is your middle name? If you don’t have one do you wish you did? What would it be?
    2. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
    3. What do you keep in the glove box of your car?
    4. Name one food that always seems to go bad before you eat it?
    5. What was the last workout you did?
    6. When was the last time you got the giggles in an inappropriate moment? What did you do?
    7. If you had to pick one song to play continuously in the background of your everyday life what would you pick?
    8. What would you do if you got 25 hours in a day while everyone else was still stuck with 24?
    9. Pick a great picture of you/your family/your friends, tell us the background story of what’s happening in it.
    10. Whats your favorite quote/song/image when you need a little inspiration?


Notes from video:

So… I am going to go down the hall, get some ice from the ice machine, and tuck into bed with some of my books. Tomorrow is day two of my internship when I will hopefully get to settle into the office and actually start my job 🙂

Answer some of the Spill it Sunday questions!

What have you been reading recently?

Who is going to join the vlog train and make a video??

Have Yourself a Merry Little Playlist (WIAW)

This is going to be a quick post today as I have a presentation tomorrow in my Business class, a speech on Thursday in my Critical Thinking class, and two exams next week to study for. WHOA.

In case you missed it, here is my last post for Marvelous in My Monday featuring “search terms.”

I wish I could say this week is going by fast, but it’s not. Which is even worse when you have tons of studying to do, because then it seems like every page and every question is TWICE as long.

Oh well. At least it’s Wednesday and I get to do another WIAW post!

After you’re done here, make sure to check out Peas and Crayons for more WIAW fun!

Now, let’s get this party started so that I can get back to watching Netflix studying. (Man are these next two weeks going to be tough!)

Breakfast

Over the weekend I didn’t use any brown rice protein powder because I was out, so for breakfast I had butternut squash cooked in the microwave.

Lunch

An Oldie but Goodie. A super large salad with red grapes, cucumber slices (hidden way below), a can of low sodium tuna, and of course, lettuce!

Snack

There were a lot of brown bananas to use up when I got home. Yay!

One of the things that I made was this Strawberry Banana Smoothie in a Bowl.

The bananas weren’t quite frozen enough to make “ice cream,” so I added some frozen strawberries and blended it to make this thick, luscious smoothie!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie in a Bowl

Ingredients:

  • slices of 2 partially frozen brown bananas (about 1-2 hours in the freezer)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup frozen strawberries

Directions: Add all of the ingredients to a food processor or blender and combine until smooth. Place in the freezer to firm up if you prefer a “ice cream” texture and are patient unlike me! Eat with a spoon.

Dinner

When I got home there was also a lot of zucchini and yellow squash to use up, so for both meals on Saturday I had sliced and steamed squash.

I also gave some to my mom, since she was the one who originally bought the vegetables!

For supper Saturday night I paired some steamed yellow squash with 4 turkey meatballs.

To make the meatballs I took 1/4 lb of lean ground turkey, divided them into 4 sections, and rolled them into balls. Then, when I was done steaming the squash, I just plopped them right into the boiling water from that. Just cover them and cook until they are done! About 10 minutes for me.

I ended up cooking up a whole pound of ground turkey into meatballs to take to school with me. Sadly I forgot them at home in the refrigerator. Oh well; at least I’ll have something to eat when I get back!

Snack

Like I said… Lots of food to use up! Here is what I did with two more large bananas. This time I planned ahead and put the banana slices in the freezer for about half of the day. Then I made them into banana “ice cream.” Delicious.

In addition to this week’s WIAW, I also want to add a little Christmas spirit with an idea that I got from Life of Di:

Have Yourself a Merry Little Playlist

1. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Yolanda Adams

2. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Michael Buble

3. White Christmas by Michael Buble

4. Jingle Bells by Michael Buble

5. Baby It’s Cold Outside by Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey

6. Winter Wonderland by Avalon

7. A Strange Way to Save the World by 4Him

8. Let it Snow by Jaci Velasquez

All of these songs come from my family’s favorite three Christmas CDs that we listen to during December:

WOW Christmas (2002)

WOW Christmas: 30 Top Christian Artists and Holiday Songs

Michael Buble’s Christmas

Jessica Simpson: The Christmas Album

Rejoyce: The Christmas Album

And now I’m off to practice for my Business presentation and work on writing my Critical Thinking speech!

Do you ever have to use up food when you come home from college or a trip?

What is your favorite use for ripe bananas? I think mine is pretty obvious!

Do you have any big tests coming up? If so, good luck!

What song would be at the top of your Merry Little Christmas Playlist?
