It's a GIRL!!

WOOO! I got a text from my aunt (and soon after, from the mommy herself) that my cousin's water broke today! Funny enough...today is her birthday, so she might have the baby on her birthday! :D I'm SO SO SO excited! Her name is Emery.
(Little Em and Big Em!)
I can't wait to spoil this child to pieces!!

I woke up this morning and ate a banana after showering/getting ready...

Probably the oddest picture of a banana I have ever taken...
Then, Alexa and I started on laundry and I ran downstairs to get some coffee while my clothes were in the dryer...after adding milk/truvia and taking 4 sips...It went down the drain. It was burnt tasting and there were grounds in it! YUCK! How does that happen? It makes no sense...Coffee and I are sort of in a rut... :(

Chemistry + Coffee (-Coffee)
Before I knew it, it was noon and I hadn't eaten breakfast. I was not in the mood for another lunch consisting of a PBJ, so I decided to use the 2nd half of my Flavored Starkist Tuna Pouch mixed with the remainder of my Annie's Roasted Red Pepper Dressing and pair it up with some veggies from the salad bar downstairs...sandwiched between two AMAZING slices of Earth Grains Wheat Berry Bread.

Satisfaction at its best!

It was quite funny when I went down to get the veggies...the lady working the salad bar (who also happens to work the sub sandwich part) was so confused. I was like "Can I just get two lettuce leaves, some black olives and some peppers". CoNfUsIoN! (So I try to clarify) "I just need it to put on my sandwich".... (The lady responds) "Oh, so you want a sandwich?"..."No"..."So you want a salad"..."Yes, I want a salad..." pahaha! "A salad consisting of two lettuce leaves, black olives and some peppers".

It was quite comical!

A juicy gala apple completed the delicious journey my taste buds were taking.
After completing my Pre-Lab and MOST (not all...darn!) of my Post Lab for Chemistry, my hunger was back. Therefore, I pulled out some Somersaults that I had been saving and had a handful.
I followed that up with a nummilicious OIKOS Blueberry Yogurt!

About half way through, I thought, "DARN, I should have crumbled the Somersaults into the yogurt...Epic Fail!"
Not having breakfast caught up with me, so I devoured a lip-smackin' Kashi TLC Pumpkin Pie Bar!
See my review here!

And now I am going to sign off and clean my room a bit. In an hour, my friends and I will be hitting the local pizza shop to fuel ourselves for some massive cheering! You've GOT to love college football! :D

MMM! Best. Pizza. Ever.
