Impatiently Waiting For Five Guys

20 Jul

So, here’s hoping that I have some good stuff to say today after taking yesterday off! I was fully intending to post yesterday, but after class I was completely brain-dead and exhausted. I ended up napping, eating, and not going to the gym until about 9:30pm. When I got home around 10:45ish, I contemplated posting… but, considering my mind kinda still wasn’t all there, I thought I’d do y’all a favor and just hold off writing until today.

First things first, this morning I made what I consider to be my most delicious oatmeal to-date! It was so sweet and yummy and I want to make it again tomorrow, and the next day, and everyday after that. Okay, I guess that’s a bit excessive. But, I’m definitely enjoying it again sometime in the very near future!

Apples-nā€™-Oats

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cut up apple
  • 3/4 cup soy-milk (plain)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar
  • 1 packet Splenda
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

– Put all ingredients into a microwavable bowl and stir them together.

– Microwave for about 3 minutes & 30 seconds, stir again, let cool, and enjoy!

Following breakfast, my Mom and I went to go see Horrible Bosses — which we both very much adored. I thought it was not only funny, but the somewhat far-out storyline was a refreshing change from the more-typical plot-lines of comedies these days! I also can’t refrain from mentioning how much I reveled in the opportunity to stare at my biggest celebrity crush, Jason Sudeikis, for a little under 2 hours. Swoon!!! If you told me I could date any actor in Hollywood, I’d chose him… hands down. He’s handsome, funny, and has this little-boy charm about him. Double swoon.

I went to the gym right after the movie, which was a smart move on my part, considering that my Dad called to let me know that he is picking up Five Guys on his way home from work today!!!!! Okay, so please just indulge me for a moment and let me express my absolute adoration for the magical burger and fries joint that is more formally known as Five Guys. For years, so many of my friends from college had raved about Five Guys, but since I never heard of it before college — or ate it, obviously — I never truly understood why they spoke of it so highly. I mean, I do love me a good burger, but since I considered it another fast-food-type chain and all, I was expecting another McDonalds or Burger King. Bleh. Well, one Sunday morning everything changed when my parents came to visit me up at school, and for some odd reason they forgot to make a reservation at the lovely local cafe we frequent upon their visits. Since we weren’t able to get a table there that afternoon, we decided on something new, casual, and quick. In came Five Guys. It was so yummy and so unlike other fast-food burgers I had, and I literally became obsessed. At the same time, it also left me feeling gross and ill for about the next couple hours. Because of this, I haven’t had it since. But, tonight that’s about to change! I am willingly going to suffice to any stomach pain in exchange for the chance to eat a heavenly cheeseburger and cajun-style french fries. I don’t indulge like this too often… but when I do I make sure as heck it’s gonna be worth it. Bring it on, Five Guys!

Besides impatiently waiting for my Dad to arrive home with the goodies, I have plenty of LSAT homework in store for tonight… which is another reason I’m glad to have gotten the gym out the way. I did a fun and challenging 30′ interval run on the treadmill, followed by 20’on the exercise bike and another abs circuit.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day! Now, if you don’t mind me asking… I’d love to know:

 

 

What are your favorite dinner-time indulgences? And, if you could date any celebrity… who would it be?!
