Hey guys! As you can see I’m obsesse with Instagram (even if it did sell out to Facebook). The past few weeks have been pretty good. I got out of work early last Friday because I helped pot some plants for the office. It was a beautiful day out, so I got a pretty good deal on that.
I swear, doesn’t my dog look like a model? I was watching Mets/Phillies (I think the Mets eventually lost this game, and my least favorite pitcher of all time Cole Hamels was on the mound for the Phils. Blech).
My little brother was visiting colleges last week. It doesn’t seem like he could be that old already! He went with my parents on a tour of a bunch of New England schools (including my alma mater Holy Cross), and I was home alone with my dog for a few days.
The best part of having oral surgery is MILKSHAKES. McDonalds makes fab milkshakes even though the rest of their menu is kind of lacking.
And finally I got the coolest new case for my iPod! I have a Nano and it’s really small so I kept losing it, and I bought a slap bracelet case! It’s great for the gym or just keeping the iPod in my purse. LOVE.
Baked eggs with salsa and cheese! I am obsessed with baked eggs right now! You can check out the recipe I used here. Baked eggs are super simple to make and taste delicious. Plus, you can change them up very easily, which gives them an A+ in my book!
I just love my dog! We have become BFFs since I moved back home.
I visited my friend Sarah last weekend. She works at Dismas, a transitional program for men who have been in prison. The farm has tons of animals. Luckily for me, the sheep had recently had little baby lambs. I had no idea that sheep could have little cow spots! One of the lambs was a little baby black sheep.
I’m making this post from my iPhone so I apologize if the formatting is weird! Ok, back to watching ANTM reruns and working on my resume!
As many of you may know, I worked at the campus dining hall in college as a Kimball Captain. You may also know that I attended Holy Cross, and that St. Patrick’s day is one of the most holy traditions to the HC student body.
As a result of my Kimballholism (read: constant state of poverty during college), I ended up working on St. Patrick’s day dinner for three years in a row. St. Patrick’s day dinner is one of the worst shifts to work at Kimball (aside from Spring Weekend). The best way to describe that shift is “shit show.” One year I actually ended up cleaning vomit off a table (I thought it was tomato sauce). Okay, the first two years I worked St. Patty’s dinner totally by choice. Sophomore year I was desperate for cash to finance my study abroad trip to Luxembourg and junior year I got guilted into working by my boss. I ended up working that shift on senior year because my friend Patricia and I accidently signed up for the Thursday dinner shift. St. Patrick’s day fell on a Thursday that year. Do the math.
Anyway, I enjoyed spending St Patrick’s day away from the drunken masses. I baked some Guinness and Bailey’s cupcakes (pictured above) and spent some time with some good friends.
Still, I found myself yearning for the rush of St. Patrick’s day at Holy Cross and Kimball…
