Egg Cupcakes

Since Shayna’s done this before, she’s pretty much our cook for the next 30 days.

She woke up at 6:30am and made us breakfast and lunch.

2012-03-21 08.01.42

For breakfast she made Egg Cupcakes!! They taste just like an omelet. I only had two little cupcakes but they were enough … surprisingly!

Egg Cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 10-12 eggs
  • 1 green onion
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 2 zucchini squash
  • 1 cup roasted red and yellow peppers
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • coconut oil
  • black pepper to taste

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease two muffin pans with coconut oil.
  2. Whisk all eggs along with black pepper in big bowl.
  3. Put green onion, zucchini, bacon, and peppers in a food processor and process until finely chopped by not smooth. Add mixture to eggs.
  4. Add spinach into processor, finely chop, and add to eggs in bowl.
  5. Mix the egg mixture well. Use measuring cup to fill the muffin pans with 1/4 cup each. (Makes about 18-20 cupcakes).
  6. Bake egg cupcakes for 20-25 minutes or until eggs are set in the middle.

You can generally put anything you want in there. I believe we didn’t have any bacon in there. As long as it’s vegetables and healthy and in the Paleo diet. You’re good to go.

Games Galore and Paleo

Such long days this month just as I knew it would be.

I cannot wait until April 14th is over. I will have a little more time for myself.

Right now, I feel I’m behind in school but I think I’ll be fine. Just a little more reading. A little more late nights … like right now and I will be fine. Positive thoughts only! Smile

Tonight I had four different games: Co-Rec Basketball, 4×4 Football, Co-Rec Dodgeball, Co-Rec Softball.

Sadly when I went to my car to drive to the games, I realized my battery was DEAD. Curses. Luckily I got a ride!

Needless to say, we lost basketball (close game!), the other team forfeited football, won two games of dodgeball (we are now in the championships!!), and the other team forfeited softball.

If it wasn’t for those forfeits, I think I would of died. I literally changed my shoes eight times since they overlapped so much. Mmm … joy.

Even though we didn’t have a softball game, we still got to hit some balls and pitch and throw. Fun! Smile

Tomorrow is Day 1 of Paelo! Patricia, Shayna, and I went grocery shopping after all my games!

Excited, I am.

Happy Hump Day Y’all! We’re almost there!

My Life Is A Broom

Picture0370

Found this gear at the FTK room. Why was it there? No one knows. But it’s funny. Open-mouthed smile

Today on the way home, a friend of mine said that in fourth grade he asked a girl to the prom (because they have proms at that age?) and she said she couldn’t go with him because “He looks like toasted bread.” Meaning he was a dark Mexican. So funny. My other friend who was in the car at the time rolled on the floor laughing when we reminisced about it.

Picture0371

My Life Is A Broom. Or so my friend Shayna says. Like her artistic skills? If I could even start to explain. You would think triangles were confusing … just look at this broom.

I’m off to watch The Blind Side. Time to cry.

Tomorrow’s another long day. And having to face certain people will be hard. Here we go.

Hope your Friday goes well! Smile

Think Good Thoughts: Living

FTK Co-Rec Soccer is in the Playoffs and we won our game tonight! Whoop! Smile I played a little bit but with shin splints and all it was hard so I was sad but we did great!

And now onto Thankful Thursday!

I’m thankful I got to go to THON. I got to see things that not many people have a chance to see. I am hoping I can go next year to relive it again. Fingers crossed! I probably can’t go with the group again since I would have graduated but maybe a reunion or something?

I am thankful I am alive. I tend to think about a lot of things when I drive. Most of the time when I’m quiet, I’m thinking about something. Driving or not. Good or bad. I drove to a lot of places today that gave me time to think that I almost got into, give or take, 5-7 car accidents. I actually rammed into a stone wall while backing out tonight after taking someone home. Yes, it was that bad.

I’m thankful I have friends like Shayna and Patrica. I’m sitting in their living room watching the telly and typing this out while they are asleep. Yes, another schedule post written in the past! We had a girl’s night. Much needed for all of us. We drank wine and watched Criminal Minds so I could stop thinking about everything while I worked on some FTK stuff … of course. I’m not able to tell them all the little details of things but I’m able to tell the gist since they were kind of there for everything.

I’m thankful for my FSA big, Rex. I bumped into him in the halls today and he knew something was wrong because I wasn’t smiling for the first time. I didn’t tell him anything and insisted I was not sad. But with his hug, tears welled in my eyes. There are so many people who are there for me when I least expect it, yet I’m never able to open up.

I am thankful for my siblings. Given I don’t tell them anything that goes on with me but if I get a text or a message on Facebook, just seeing it makes my day. Especially when they send me cute pictures of their doggies, aka my nephews. I cannot wait too meet my newest nephew! I’m not sure if they decided to change his name or not but he’s two years old. Sissy, Brett, and Ross got him at the pound.

There are other things I’m thankful for of course. The list can go on. But right now, those are what holds dear to my heart.

I hope everyone has a Thankful Thursday! Think of all the good that you have and the bad will slowly disappear, hopefully.

Penn State: Day 1

So yes. I did not sleep at all. And I still have not slept. Whoo!

It started out with a 3:30am drive to the airport with Patricia, Shayna, Shayna’s Mum, and Flor.

326411_3226315533683_1140361677_3275082_1731460754_o

Shayna and her mum left and Jakob arrived right when we were walking in! So these are the earliest risers that got there first! We win …

2012-02-16 03.53.47

Shayna made little baggies of breakfast for all of us. It consisted of a blueberry muffin, a Capri sun, little pieces of candy, and a bag of pretzels.

336098_3226339814290_1140361677_3275085_582704734_o

Us all enjoying our breakfast. We sent this blurry picture to Shayna to let her know we love her and wished she was with us.

IMG_5489

Us in our seats. We got to pick anywhere we wanted to sit. There was a lot of open seats so a lot of us had our own row … like Tim J. here who sat in front of me. Jakob sat in my row and we had an open seat in between us.

IMG_5492IMG_5494

Before we took off, the view. And after we took off, the view. So pretty!

It was a 3 hour plane ride to Baltimore.

I was so hyper before we took off. But once we were up in the air, the hyperness died off. I tried hard to fall asleep but failed so I pretty much just shut my eyes and listened to music Trisha gave me the night before.

IMG_5495IMG_5496

Little snacks we got on the plane. I only ate the Wheat Thins and still have the Ritz. I got water and Tim J. threw the Plane Cookies at me which I still had until later that night.

IMG_5497

The view from the sky as we were about to land! It’s so pretty!

Hello Baltimore!

IMG_5499

We grabbed food quickly from the food court at the airport. A bunch of us bought food from Quizno’s. I got a veggie sub. Yums!

IMG_5500

Then we got on our charter bus to have a 3 hour drive to Pennsylvania.

It was a pretty fun bus ride. I really wished I got some sleep but we had fun reading a Cosmo magazine Patricia bought. Ryan was going crazy over it! And Tim J. somehow felt the need to talk to me and share with me things that happened in the past and his failed Valentine’s Day. I feel sorry for him.

IMG_5505IMG_5507

Next thing I know … SNOW!! Life is amazing.

I am in love with this weather. It’s cold but not cold enough where I want to kill myself. I wish I could move up to a cold place when I get older.

2012-02-16 14.23.39

We arrive at The Atherton Hotel and this is the lobby. Hello. You’re gorgeous!

IMG_5510IMG_5511

And the rooms aren’t shabby either. It’s just the three of us (Liliana, Marisol, and me). So big! So much room! I get to have a bed ALL to myself! hehe

430788_3300785479457_1262526818_33460568_1345688831_n

A group  of us walked around the streets before getting dinner. Everyone else went their separate ways. (Courtney, Andy, Patricia, Tim J., Liliana, Marisol, and me!)

2012-02-16 16.05.16

I found a Wilson Volleyball!! It’s so cute … I want it!

Everyone was starting to get hungry so we went to:

2012-02-16 16.12.36

Green Bowl
131 W. Beaver Avenue
State College, Pennsylvania 16801
(814) 238-0600
www.thegreenbowl.com

2012-02-16 16.21.58

All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet for $11.95. We all jumped on it. You pick what you want and they cook it! It looks dead but there were people here!

2012-02-16 16.57.39

I ate ALL of that. And another plate. I can make this at home but it was nice having more ingredients than usual. Winking smile

429579_3300784399430_1262526818_33460567_1971974557_n

Andy, Liliana, and I at the restaurant. We only found this place because the Penn State students suggested it.

I would probably not waste $11.95 on this kind of food since I can make it myself, but it was good enough to satisfy all of us and our hungry tummies.

Afterward, we all walked back to the hotel and we chilled in my room. Ryan and Dilip walked in to let us know they were going to have a drink in the hotel bar downstairs. The 21+ club followed suit. Aka: Patricia, Marisol, Tim J. and I.

2012-02-16 18.31.44

I got a Shock Top that was on Tap. Yum!

Then Bob and Cindy came in with Emily and they had a drink. Along with Murtuza, Lance, Jakob, and Tim S. Eli walked in to hang out with us a little.

A few of us played pool and then some of us went back to our rooms to relax.

It’s been a busy, fun filled day. It’s only 10pm here where back home, it’s 9pm. This time change is confusing me and I am starting to get tired from not sleeping!

I cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings!

I hope you all have an amazing Friday!

Butterflies In My Tummy

I said I would tell you why my weekend began on Monday night.

I will be heading to Penn State soon! There is an organization there called THON which is where FTK derived from.

Their Dance Marathon is this weekend and I’m excited to experience it with some amazing people.

I hope I get to see real live snow!!

2012-02-15 16.33.31

Katrina went with me to Wal-Mart to buy last minute things for THON and she decided to pick up some cupcakes.

When I asked her which princess I would be, she said something funny … but rude.

2012-02-15 17.24.13

Gary came over and they hung out with me while I packed.

Picture of Gary wanting to go to THON with me.

I wish everyone I love in FTK was going with me. It would so much better. But I’ll make do with the people I have. Winking smile

Then we, along with Andrew C. and Lisel, went to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings. Had a good time with them and sad I won’t get to see them for the next five days! Sad smile

Trisha came over and gave me 100 songs to listen to while on my trip. I’m excited! I love new music!!

Then Travis helped me with my luggage and drove me to Shayna’s and Patricia’s so that I wouldn’t have to leave it here over the weekend. We have decided not to sleep … but they have dozed off next to me. Shayna and her mum are driving us to the airport at 3:30am.

Eepp! We’re almost there! My eyes are getting heavy!

Hallmark Holiday

I guess you could say my weekend started Monday after 7:30pm when we found out the other team wasn’t going to show up for our FTK Co-Ed Soccer game. I’ll tell you more about why my weekend has started this early at a later post. Winking smile

2012-02-14 11.25.59

Today has been a pretty eventful day. I woke up with a text from Jenny saying to grab a donut on the way out. I’m not a fan of donuts but I like sprinkles. Smile I ate the one in the middle on the right because it was a better looking heart than the other two.

2012-02-14 13.30.00

I went to school and a friend and I did a storyboard for a video we’re wanting to shoot that has to do with skydiving. It’s pretty simple. Not too in depth. Most of it is just in our heads. Then I went to class to where I didn’t have to be at since I rescheduled my test.

Went to the bank to get moolah then headed home and relaxed with Jenny and Deana. Travis came over and he ate the chocolate heart shaped donut and we all read horoscopes, watched YouTube videos, and hung out.

Took a one hour nap. Then headed over to Shayna’s and Patricia’s. It was Girl’s Night. To be exact … Single Girl’s Night.  I think one of them has a boyfriend though.

Before anyone else came over, Shayna, Patricia, and I talked about guys. Bahaha Typical, right? What is girl’s night without some talk about guys …

2012-02-14 21.12.25

Flor and Patricia’s friend, Jocelyn, came over. We ate Alfredo Pasta with broccoli, carrots, cucumber, and tomatoes. With half a yam. I love yams. Yams, yams, yams. Open-mouthed smile

2012-02-14 21.19.42

And we drank wine. I’m not a wine lover but this was actually pretty good. Patricia drank pretty much the whole bottle.

We also had another bottle of wine but I didn’t like it.

2012-02-14 21.58.28

Then we all had some chocolate covered strawberries and watched Our Family Wedding. I asked for a sad movie where either people die at the end or a relationship doesn’t work out. But they picked a cutesy funny one that made me wish I had a boyfriend. BOOO …

Anyway, I hope your Valentine’s Day was as great as mine … surrounded by people I love. Open-mouthed smile

Free Food And Good Times

I love Fridays even though they are the longest days of my life. But the people in it makes every Friday tolerable.

2012-02-10 09.01.19

I went to the CPE bright and early to do some FTK work before class. And free breakfast was given to me! Yum!! I didn’t eat it all because it was dang heavy for a morning meal but it was dang good! Bacon (which I’m not a fan of), beans (which makes you fart), potatoes (which I love), sunny side eggs (which weren’t so sunny), and veggies (which made the potatoes yummy).

Then I went to take my Guitar Test. Got an “A”! Whoop! Then went to take my Vocal Test and did HORRIBLE! My accompanist who I’ve never practiced with wouldn’t go to a lower octave for my song so I had to sing it higher. I sounded like a dying cat! Sad smile

2012-02-10 12.28.01

Lunch was served at the CPE! Make your own sandwiches and broccoli soup. Broccoli soup is fattening so I was sad but it was so good and warm in my tummy!! Went to Leadership Challenge class then the FTK meeting.

409474_2610608394776_1541970304_32095313_453142315_n

Went to Habanero’s yet again! Yums! We sat there chilling and talking and it just felt nice. I really enjoy their company. Now all I have to do is learn to be nice to people so that they’ll be my friend. Winking smile

Patricia, Shayna, Andrew C., Eric S., and I hung out at Eric’s afterwards. We watched an episode of Workaholics. It was hilarious and I can’t believe I’ve never seen it.

Then we played a few games of King’s Cup that soon turned into games of Truth or Dare. WTF, right? That game sucks because I never have good questions to ask people and it makes me share too much about myself. Hopefully what we shared really does stay in that circle. Embarrassing …

Then we played Just Dance 3 on the Xbox Kinect that soon turned into the boys playing Fifa.

It was a fun night even though it was just the five of us. Sometimes that’s all that’s needed. Not wasting money on clubs or bars. Or getting knocked over because of crowds. Just a chill night with great company.

Saturday, I’m ready for you. Homework. Basketball practice. Possible Girls Night with FSA.

Happy Saturday! Smile
