Galoshes anyone?

Hi all! It is SUPER nice out today! The forecast says it will be 51 and mostly sunny today (yay yay yay yay!) Now it is kinda a super wet mess everywhere though since the snow is all melting. I seriously need some galoshes!

Thursday I had the worst headache EVER! It started about 1/2 hr. into my night class and was pounding all across my forehead and on my temples. Ugh...I was completely miserable through the remaining 2.5 hrs! When I came home I took some Aleve and made a super quick and easy dinner. Mac and cheese spirals and some roasted veggies. I drank a bunch of water and then just went to sleep since my head was still pounding!!!

Friday I woke up feeling LOADS better! I got to sleep in some since I didn't have to work :)

I made myself a bowl of stove top oats! My oats had:
1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. milk
1 banana sliced
sprinkle of brown sugar
toppings: choc chips, 1/2 choc chip clif bar
I ate this yummy bowl while finishing my homework that was due in my afternoon class! Nothing like working with a deadline only hrs. away...I love the pressure! I do my best work under crunch time which is why I think I procrastinate so much :)I wasn't super hungry for lunch before class so I finished the Clif bar from this morning and had a cheese stick on my way to campus.
About 1/2 way during class I had one of these guys which foodbuzz sent me awhile ago:
In class I had the Dark Choc. Raspberry Almond. It was fairly good. One thing that annoyed my was the inconsistency of toppings. It seemed all of the dark choc. chunks were on one end of the bar and I only tasted one large almond piece. The flavors were ok, but it was a little sweet.
I have now tasted all of these bars and I would say my favorite was the Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut. (Fiance agreed!)
After class I ran a few errands then came home to make an earlyish dinner. Since I didn't end up eating lunch I was STARVING!!!!!
I made a veggie pasta!
It had:
roasted zucchini and carrot strips
whole wheat pasta
extra virgin olive oil
italian seasoning
and topped with some freshly grated parm. cheese
On the side I had a spinach salad and a glass of red wine :)
This was a fab. combo! I ate every last bite AND had dessert:1 piece of whole wheat toast topped with my final bit of nutella (!!) and a sliced banana. Perfect!
I just lounged on the couch watching a movie and reading before heading to bed a little early. This week wore me out!!!!!!!!!
Breakfast this morning was a bowl of cereal with a sliced naner and a cup of coffee.

I'm just working a few hrs. this morning and then spending the rest of the day with fiance!! We are planning on going to 2 wineries on the Indy Wine Trail and going out to dinner at Bonefish Grill!
Have a wonderful Staurday :)

You're a smart cookie to take the pill with lotsa water and get sleep! I have migraines only when it's that time of the month because of hormone fluctuations. *sigh* woman problem suck sometimes.

As for my faaaavorite Trader Joe's hummus? hehehe I like the sundried tomato and basil A LOT, but I like experimenting with 'em. Garlic is VERY garliciy (which is good if you like garlic), and chipotle is nice and spunky. I'm testing out the horseradish one soon!! Let me know which one you decide on! :)
