WIAW: finals week eats

Hey guys! These past 2 weeks have been…long! Finals finals finals. Now they’re over, my mom and my best friend will be here today, and within the next 4 days I’ll be in NC for a bridal shower, SC (again) for a wedding, and all the way back to NY//home sweet home. Of course, NY will only be home for so long, because in early January my parents are moving down to Florida. It is going to be a crazy 4 weeks home!

I wanted to share my eats from this hectic week, to show how I keep it healthy and stay energized during this time!

^^best lunch this week. It actually a little disappointing– we were expecting pesto, goat cheese and sundried tomatoes, but it was just a normal grilled cheese. What?! Oh well. The part that made it special was taking a study break with my guy to enjoy the outside air (yes, we can picnic in December in SC, don’t be jealous).^^

All the Studying:

Dinner:

^^studying at our Furman chapel means quiet, coffee, and snacks. #yesplease^^

^^a roomie date to destress. almond milk latte? don’t mind if I do.^^

Workouts:

And last, but certainly not least– workouts! I find my workouts key to keeping low stress and clear minded during study-filled weeks like this. It’s the perfect break from studying, and it helps me refocus when I do go back.

Questions of the day:

  1. Good luck with all your finals! Ahh you go to Furman? I go to UNC! I love finding other college girls’ blogs to connect with!

  2. That may be the most perfect almond milk latte I’ve ever seen – sometimes the baristas struggle to make them pretty with it, but they were clearly pro’s! Love the chicken/banana combo btw – I may have to try this… 😉
