this past week…

this past week has been kinda crazy.  i’ve had a ton of college work to do, we’ve had family staying for a few days and i’ve been feeling pretty run down.  i think it’s a combo of college stress and insomnia all catching up with me, but today i woke up with a sore throat, swollen glands and a fever.  feeling pretty low and just totally exhausted.  on the plus side i’ve also had good parts of the week.  i dug out my juicer and have been making myself fresh juices every morning to start the day with some vitamins, nutrients and some of my 5 a day.  so far i’ve tried vampire juice (beetroot, apple, carrot and lime) which is so good, sunshine juice (orange, pineapple, pear, carrot) in the photo above and today’s juice which was apple, pear, carrot and ginger.  i am loving having this healthy start to the day.

another thing that made my week happy was receiving this care package from my friend april.  long story short, she live in baltimore in the states and has this amazing coffee and tea shop by her that sells all these great teas and coffees.  anyway, back in september, april mailed me this package and we thought it had gone missing in the mail, but lo and behold, it turned up yesterday, 2 months to the date it was sent! it really made me smile.  i’m a total tea addict and she sent me pumpkin spice tea, jack frost tea and gingerman tea….looking forward to using them in my new starbucks christmas mug…

yesterday was a great day because i finally got to see harry potter and the deathly hallows part 1.  i think it’s pretty obvious from previous posts that i am a huge harry fan and have a slightly inappropriate crush on rupert grint who plays ron weasley.  i’m not gonna spoil anything for those still to see it but it was amazing, everything i expected and more.  we went to the 11:30pm showing and it was mobbed.  people were dressed up as dementors, voldemort and hogwarts students and everybody was cheering when the movie started.  the movie theatre had put up cute signs naming parts of the cinema ‘diagon alley’ and ‘honeydukes’.  it was a great night with my mister.
