My car looks like this:


So, while the roads are fine, there’s no way I’m scraping all that off!

For the third day in a row, I took a cue from MamaPea and went with warm apple cereal:

1/2 Fortune apple, 1 cup MultiGrain Cheerios, skim, some raisins, cinnamon, and TrueVia

Yesterday I did add peaches like I was thinking, but frozen was not the way to go – so I just stuck with apples and raisins today. It was still missing something though. Almonds? Vanilla?  

After breakfast my momma and I decorated the tree we got yesterday.

Two of my five Baby’s First Christmas ornaments:

My brother has 0. Poor second child. Some other favorites:

That’s Rudolph. It’s also apparently for Rudolph, as “To: Rudolph Love, Brynne” is scrawled on it.
That’s just presh.

As are my puppies/snuggle buddies. Yes, they are still puppies to me, although they are like 13 in human years.
Lunchers was a platter of many tastes:

Toast with 3 egg whites and French Onion LC wedge, other 1/2 of Fortune from this morning with cinnamon, and a cup of this:

It’s FREEZING in my house when the heat turns off, so I’m keeping warm in my bed with a cup of Candy Cane Lane, Gilmore Girls, and my Santa socks:
Stay warm!

No, not weight-wise.  I didn’t mention it yesterday, but over the weekend there was a horrific attack on my campus.  At about 12:30 am Saturday night/Sunday morning, a fire alarm in the Student Union was pulled.  When everyone was outside, a fight broke out and two people were stabbed.  One of the men died, a football player, Jasper Howard.  The other victim was released from the hospital. I think they know who did it, but no one has been caught/arrested.

While there have been sexual assaults on campus that have been publicized, there has not been a MURDER.  It is completely horrific and I’m extremely creeped out.  Last night I went out to my car alone in the dark to get something and had to ask myself if I was safe.  Even with those previous assaults, I have never in 4 years felt unsafe on my campus.  We live in such a rural area (there are legitimately cows outside my window) that violent crime is almost unheard of.  As sad as it is, sexual assault on a college campus is not all that surprising.  Stabbings, on the other hand …

There’s a very quiet and weird vibe on campus right now – and I haven’t even been to class yet.  This crime is terrifying and devastating to our school – especially when it happened to a prominent figure the day we won our Homecoming game.

Anyway – I really wanted to run this morning, but it’s just too cold – apparently it feels like it’s 20 degrees.  I can go this afternoon after work, but I reallyyyyy need to get some winter running gear because soon it won’t matter what time of day I go.  Afterall, this happened yesterday:


More October snow.  Normal, Storrs.  Breakfast was soo good and refreshing!


Toasted Maple Nut coffee with skim and PureVia, Chobani Vanilla with chopped Honeycrisp and cinnamon.

Gotta get ready for class!

Last night’s post till be up later. A test has stood in the way of it. Too bad it’s been snowing on and off since last night and the weather doesn’t seem to be standing in the way of my test … (so far)


(taken by blackberry, hence the overall bad quality)

See you after my test!
