At the library.
So me and my dad just got back from our outing this afternoon. We were supposed to go bowling, one of our favorite things to do, but when we got there the place was PACKED!! AND I MEAN PACKED!! There must have been like 5 birthday parties going on all at once. Since the wait for a lane was like an hour and a half, we decided to just shop around and go to the library instead.
I am so glad we did!!! Our library has this new huge section of free books, and I always manage to find at least one good thing. My dad says it's like an addiction: once you find one good thing you always keep coming back for more. Well this time I hit the motherload. Right on the bottom shelves were dozens upon dozens of my favorite book series that I used to read when I was a little girl! The Sweet Valley Twins and Sweet Valley University!! I have been looking for these books for ages but can never seem to find more than a few at my libraries. I have seriously read and re-read my collection at least 5 times each. They are just too good!!
Well when I saw these books I immediately yelled "DAD!! DAD!! BRING THE CAR AROUND!!" and started snatching them off of the shelves. Quickly I found a big ole carboard box and stacked them all in there, and guarded that box with my life!! haha. I haven't counted my stash yet, but I must have found at least 50 books. I can't wait to start reading them!! This is seriously going to cut into my homework time!!!
So that was the highlight of my day. I also went to the gym earlier this morning for an O-MAZE-ING energizing workout!! I love getting in my workout in the morning because it sets my day off right and eases some of my stress. Plus, since I have been eating a morning snack I just feel like I have SO MUCH MORE ENERGY than I used to. Seriously, I couldn't understand how you all could just plug away for 40 minutes on the eliptical, but now I totally understand. Yesterday I did 30 minutes straight, but still felt like I could keep going forever. It feels GREAT!!!

I ate this while looking for books at the library. This is sooo good and I am so glad I just decided to go ahead and try them. The chewy texture of the glaze mixed with the crunchiness of the oats and the sweet pumpkin, cinnamon flavor--mmmm!
