There’s a lot of hustling and bustling going on around in the house. In fact, it’s a little bit chaotic (in a good way), so I thought I’d share the experience. 😉
Lots of things to pack and bring along for tomorrow’s graduation ceremony…
I’m making the lunches for the family tomorrow so that we can take a short break between ceremonies (there are two…one for all the undergraduates and one for the specific major.) My main goal is to pack along fresh foods that will be tasty and refreshing for a warm, sunny day.
Must remember to bring along these pita breads and all the rest of the fixins’ (tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, hummus, black olives, etc.) I sliced all of the veggies tonight, and they’re getting packed away in a cooler for tomorrow. 😀
The entire family is going way above and beyond in making this day feel extra special. The edible fruit arrangement from my sis and her husband left me smiling from ear to ear. And then this afternoon, I came home to see flowers on the table. My parents surprised me with three gorgeous roses. Love, love, love them! So pretty. 😀
Mom also fixed my dress for me. She must have spent at least a good one and a half hours adjusting the straps (!!!) You’re the best, mom! 😀
After feeling a little as if I was in dreamland with all the preparations and excitement, I calmed myself down with a long walk and some quality time in the kitchen. Nothing too fancy was made, but it was delicious and exactly what I was in the mood for. Sometimes you just can’t beet wholewheat pumpkin pancakes (click for recipe.). 😀 While Dad made some scrambled eggs, I sauteed up some cabbage on the side (weird, I know, but cabbage and eggs actually really do go very well together ) and got to work on making these.
I followed the recipe to the “T” except I cut out 1 T. of the oil (using olive oil) and used all whole wheat flour. They came out perfect. Light and fluffy. Full of flavor. Perfect. 😀
Must. Go. To. Bed. Early. Tonight.
Tomorrow is going to be an early morning followed by a long day. I need to start relaxing so that I can fall asleep at a decent hour. 😉
