Anticipation on Overdrive!

by Courtney on June 24, 2010

“Schoooooool’s OUT for SUMMA!” 8)

I am so psyched to finally be on summer break – it’s been a long year, and this break is well-deserved, trust me!

The end of the school year came with a couple super sweet gifts from my students, such as my snazzy DD’s mug, some pretty flowers…

…and this really cute wind chime.  How cute are those little bees?!? :-P


After getting the word that we could leave early today from work, I pretty much exhausted myself by doing the “happy dance” on my whole car ride home.  This meant appetite = HUNGRY!  I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted right away, so I dug into some Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato chips (DANgerous!) & some Pineapple Peach salsa that I found last week at Target.  (Yes, this was one of those impulse buys!) ;)  I probably had about 6-7 chips with LOTS of salsa – I <3 fruit salsa.

I eventually decided I needed something cool & creamy, so it was smoooothie time!  I went away from my normal combos and tried something new today:

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

- 1 Chobani honey flavored Greek yogurt

- 1 frozen banana, sliced

- <3/4 cup fresh blueberries

- 2 big handfuls spinach

- 1 ice cube

The smoothie had awesome flavor, but I could taste a hint of the spinach today, which I don’t usually find with my normal green monsters.  It was also a little thinner than usual, most likely due to the fresh blueberries (normally I use frozen strawberries).  But either way, it was still super-satisfying and I’ll probably make it again. :)

On the side, I also had some carrot sticks + hommus – al fresco 8)

Can you see my shadow?? ;)

I’m counting this as lunch #1, because I’m already starting to feel a little hungry.  I wanted to space it out that way though, since I’m anticipating a later dinner tonight.

SPEAKING of tonight — I am completely ecstatic about a special event happening tonight!!  For some of the locals, you’re probably aware of the madness this is sure to ensue in a few hours down in Albany.  For those of you reading from afar, I will give you a little clue…

“Motown Philly ;)

I’ll be back tonight with a recap to end the suspense I’m sure you’re all feeling right now…mwwaaahahaha!! :-D

For now, I’m going to put my freshly pedicured tootsies up, and just RELAX!

Does anyone have any guesses on my secret event?!?!

I do too!!! How funny is that?!? I used to try to recreate the dance that she did :)


5 Jess Masters June 24, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Enjoy Boyz II Men, Court ;-) And Happy Summer vacation!!! Even though you’re the teacher now, don’t you still get that same feeling you had as a kid when you finally finish the school year?

What are your plans for the summer? Teaching summer school or taking advantage of the break? 8-)
