snack time!

So I've attempted to stop drinking Diet Coke. I know it's bad for me. But lately with school, work, capstone, clinicals, etc... I need the caffeine to get me through the day. So I have found an alternative: Crystal Light Energy. It's sooo good and has about 50 mg of caffeine in 16oz. I need to find if they have other flavors though cause I'm kind of getting sick of the strawberry.
Another snack I've discovered lately are Mini Bags of Kettle Korn. These are the perfect snack coming in at only 100 kcals and they have tons of fiber. I'm obsessed.

the SCERA.

There are some benefits that come from living within walking distance to the Scera Pool/Area. #1 = Shaved Ice! and oh is it good. I prefer the Tiger's Blood w/ Mango (creamie style). #2 = the Scera Shell: They have musicals all summer long, currently playing Singing in the Rain. And they also have movies outside every Wednesday night. #3= the POOL. I have yet to go. I want to get back into swimming. They have lap swim every morning 7-9 am. Anybody want to join us for any of the above activities? Let me know!

I neeeeed to go to PARIS.....some day.

Yesterday was my day off since I did not get a weekend this week due to a combination of clinicals at the State Hospital and doing hours for my internship. So I decided to go see a movie by myself. I went to Riverwoods to see Midnight in Paris. and I LOVED it! Here is a short synopsis of what the movie is about: Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams are a couple who travel to Paris for business and have their lives transformed. It's kind of a movie that is more on the artsy side. A critic explained it well by saying, "Midnight in Paris is a fairy tale, a parfait of whimsy." More than anything, this movie makes me want to go to Paris sooo bad. I would love to just go there and wander the streets with Case, do some exploring. Hopefully some day this will happen :)
This movie made me fall in love with Marion Cotillard. She is such a babe. She is actually a French-born actress and singer. You have probably seen her in movies like Inception, La Vie en Rose, Public Enemies, and Big Fish.

Here is the trailer...

the beginning of many hikes this summmaa!

On Saturday Casey's parents plus Case and I went on a hike up Rock Canyon. It was beeeauuutiful! It was a perfect way to start our Saturday. It has finally turned into Summer around her and I could not be more excited. Casey got me some legit hiking shoes and I have already being doing some research about all the local hikes. It's going to be an active summer outdoors! I've been waiting a while for this season.
