One last day//Back to School.

Saturday was my last day home, and mostly spent with family. I woke up late, and just in time to head off to brunch with my mom and my best friend Krista. We went to Toast, a local restaurant with delicious, unique, amazing food! I had a Downport Omelette with egg whites which had gouda cheese, peppers, tomatoes, and  crab meat. It was amazing. I am loving seafood more and more. I might be branching out to more meats soon– like turkey or chicken!

I spent the morning/afternoon just hanging out with my parents and enjoying our time together.

A little later in the afternoon, my mama wanted to take a nap, and my dad needed to run some errands. So I headed off for a quick workout, and to use the last day of my gym pass! I hopped on the arc for a simple workout, 50 minutes of cardio.

After my workout, I headed home and cooked dinner with the fam. Salmon, blue corn chips, roasted carrots, asparagus, butternut squash, and hummus. So good. And so satisfying!

The rest of the evening was spent organizing whatever things I left in my room, while hanging with my mom and ad. It was such a perfect way to end my break. I love being home, and I love my family so much!

Sunday:

Sunday morning started early. My dad and I had to leave the house at 4:30 am to get to the airport early enough for my 6:10 am flight. Getting through security was kind of a hassle, because they opened my bag and took everything out! Obviously there was nothing in there, so it was fine, and in the end I am glad to know that they are doing their jobs! My first flight was on the tiniest little plane- we actually had to walk out to the plane and up its little stairs. Fun experience!

Around 7:45 am, I arrived in Washington D.C., and had 2 hours to kill before my connecting flight. I was practically ready to eat my phone by this point, so I headed off in search of some more socially-acceptable food. I ended up with some plain Chobani yogurt, and a packet of Keenwah granola. I had never heard of Keenwah before, but I am so glad I found it. It is a gluten free granola, made from quinoa. It was the perfect addition to my yogurt! It can be hard to find gluten free foods on the go, and it was awesome to run into this. Check out Keenwah for some delicious treats!

My lovely roommate picked me up from the airport and I took her out to lunch as a thank you. We went to Everyday Organic, a local favorite of mine. I had a TLT {Tempeh-Lettuce-Tomato} on spelt bread, which is low-gluten. It was amazing, as per the usual.  If you’re in Upstate SC, definitely check it out!

The rest of the afternoon was spent catching up with the roommates, unpacking, and even a workout. After unpacking for a few hours, I was practically going stir-crazy, so I though a workout was in order.

A little Arc, Bike, and Stairmaster to round it out. Simple & easy.

I had dinner and caught up with some friends, before heading out to the airport to pick up the boy. It is great to be back and I am excited to see what this semester brings!
