look at that cute thing I'm doing with my face right there. gold.

Yep I had to play hooky today from my night class. Sorry mom. Nick and I both have had a bit of mild insomnia lately and I think it's just our bodies trying to get back on schedule after Christmas break. I'm sure staying up late blogging and playing modern warfare 3 hasn't helped. Either way we didn't wake up until almost 4 pm! I couldn't believe it. I don't particularly like missing class but this way I haven't had to part with my PJ's at all today and I got to have a lazy evening of tea and homework. It's been nice. I also had the luxury of tackling cooking an artichoke for the first time. It turned out really good and now I have a new go-to for a healthy snack (maybe some other time sea salt and vinegar chips...). I've always been really attracted to artichokes, they're such a good looking vegetable...  

..but just like quinoa, I had no idea how to go about cooking this little guy. Luckily simply recipes was there to save the day. She even gives instruction on how to properly eat it, and for that I was very thankful because I probably would have struggled otherwise.

It's snowing again so I need to go outside and play in it because,"life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."-Ferris Bueller


  1. I hope you get over your insomnia soon! That's always the worst. I battled it for a few months once. Worst few months of my life. Ooh, I'm such a fan of artichokes.

  2. Lazy days are always wonderful. I hope that your insomnia leaves you! I've just found your blog and think it's fantastic. I'm a new follower, I hope you'll stop by my blog some time and say hi!
