46 Days

To Match Day that is.   Promise that I won't make every post a countdown, but it's pretty darn exciting.

This was my awesome drive home the other day from my interview at U of Maryland.  The snowstorm of the century.
This is what the interstate looked like.  I was stuck in one spot on the interstate for 5 hours!!
I finally made it to Morgantown where I spent the night...

  Bunsen was totally ready for the snowstorm.

  My awesome new haircut.

  My eats haven't been that interesting lately.  I have dubbed these next few weeks the "Match Meltdown."  I want to be at my fittest and I would also like to look good for our trip to Europe.  I will be working out like a crazy person...classes include boot camp, Spinning, and kickboxing.  Oh,did I forget to mention Europe?  Yes, I am leaving at the beginning of April for a 10day trip across Europe.  This awesome trip includes Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris and London.  It's me, Andy, Courtney, and 3 other friends from school.  It's going to be amazing!!!  Needless to say, I need to look good around the Parisian women.  I know that I will still be a fat cow compared to European women, but I love food.  So there.

   So I decided to be a good person and only make the serving size of sweet potato fries....can you believe this?????  Girl needs more fries than that. 
  This dressing is an amazing ginger dressing from Whole Foods.  Go get some.

 So I visited my friend Whitney in DC, and she took me to this really cool little restaurant in Rockville.  They're known for their waffles....which can be either savory or sweet.  This is an egg white omelette with pesto roasted vegetables.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that the veggies included beets and sweet potatoes.  Beets on an omelet?  Don't be was amazing.  That's also a savory waffle on the side.  Really light and bready.

Andy has finally helped me figure out and fix the kinks with my Eye-Fi card, so hopefully I will be able to post more often.

So last week Andy and I made a trip up to Delaware. He said that he obviously needed to see the place in case we move there for residency. Needless to say, as soon as we drove in, I got all excited. I saw Fresh Thymes in my future. There food was also featured on my blog before. This time I was there for breakfast.

I will remind you again that this restaurant is a carnivore, vegetarian, vegan friendly restaurant.  This was scrambled eggs with fresh pico de gallo, guac, and hot sauce.  Simple but soooo amazing.  Didn't take a picture, but had Christmas cookie flavored coffee.  Just as good as it sounds.

This was Andy's french toast.  It may not look like much, but it was great!!  Fresh Pennsylvania maple syrup topped it all off.

Dress from Anthropologie that I'm dying to have.

  Andy and I also ate at this cool crab shack the night before.  Even though I'm not normally a fan of seafood overall, this place was a pretty good hole-in-the-wall place.  But I can't remember its name.

  This was Cajun style flounder with fries.  The flounder was amazing!!!

Andy's king crab legs...

My adorable sweet child......and the bowl I painted for him at the Pottery Place.

Feels good to be back!

This is a lame post because I have no picture currently.  I got one of those new Eye-Fi cards, which is supposed to help with uploading pictures, but for some reason it's not working on my computer.  Also, Andy and I are remodeling parts of the house before we leave.  We have drywalled both the ceiling and laundry room because it had hideous wood paneling.  So, needless to say,our house is in shambles.
  I will be back with fun pictures from today.  I'm having a girl's day with my friends at the Pottery Place in Huntington, WV.  We're basically going to paint pottery, gossip, and drink wine.

Enjoy the day!
