Since The Olympics…

Since I haven’t done any daily updates in, oh, ages, I realized I haven’t kept you up to date on all the goings on in my life…you know, other than the Olympics. Some fun & important things have happened that I wanted to share.

Since the Olympics….

…I’ve started working at my new job at Thrifty Foods as a cashier, where I get to wear this really snazzy clip on tie.


…I’ve submitted my application to the dietetics program. Fingers crossed people!

…I’ve tried hot-cross buns for the first time. Mind you, these ones were chocolate, so I don’t know if that really counts 😉


…I’ve started a new volunteer gig at the hospital, working in the senior’s manor. It’s been going well, as I start to get to know the residents there, and learn the routines.

…I’ve done a little indoor kart racing with my cousin and her friends.


Here we are suited up and ready to go.


Those cars move fast!


…I somehow got suckered into watching New Moon. There’s 2 hours of my life I’m never getting back.

…I’ve been discovering a new love of almond butters, thanks to the samples Hangry Pants Heather sent me.

Barney Butter topped cereal & diced apple.


Justin’s Natural Almond Butter – in maple – topping some banana oats with hemp seeds and cacao nibs.




…I’ve studied for & written my last midterm of the semester.


…I’ve gone to my second Zumba class for free. Might actually sign up for a set this time.

…I’ve enjoyed a few Starbucks beverages.


…I’ve re-aggravated my low back/SI joints, prompting me to look into going back to physio, just as the 3 year anniversary of my car accident is around the corner. Le sigh.

…I’ve embraced my inner-nerd and picked up a giant book of word puzzles. Word puzzles are cool, yo!


…I’ve discovered a love for frozen grapes. Now I’m just waiting until grapes go on sale so I can stock up.

…and, I’ve attended my cousin’s son’s 1st birthday party. My cousin made the cake – check out how awesome it looked!


Who knew my cousin had such mad cake making skillz?!

Now that you know all that I’ve been up to, what’s something new that you’ve done in the past few weeks? Anything exciting/daring/tasty/fun?

    How awesome! So much fun going on in your life right now. That’s fabulous. I love the chocolate hot cross bun and the cake that your cousin made is amazing. That definitely takes skill!

    Fingers crossed on the dietetics program…and hurray for word puzzles! I definitely have a book that exact size that I bring with me whenever I’ll have some time to play 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

    Wow, that hot cross bun looks amazing, and that cake is a work of art!
    Best of luck on getting into the dietetics program–I’m in the same boat!
