Linking up with Heather, Katie, Clare, & Jennifer, thanks for hosting ladies!
Fall in Michigan is absolutely beautiful and I have been taking advantage of all the trees every chance I am outside. Taking a hike on Sunday while I was camping with my family was the perfect way to take in all the beauty of fall in Michigan. And the Michigan State campus is absolutely beautiful in the fall. Every time I walk across the Red Cedar River I think about how lucky I am to go to such a beautiful school.
I will be making this healthy Pumpkin Spice Frozen Latte this week. I have a can of pumpkin puree that is waiting to be used and I actually have all of the other ingredients on hand! That is a rarity in a college apartment kitchen. No matter how cold it gets, I always love a cold drink and this is perfection. I am trying to fit in all the pumpkin I can in the next month or so while it is still socially acceptable (hence pumpkin biscottis). Thank you Lee for fueling the pumpkin addiction this season!
Not only do I love jamming out to "Shake It Off," but seeing my favorite mascot (SPARTY) dancing to it totally made my day. I may or may not be biased, but Sparty is definitely the best dancer out there ;). I am so excited for game day tomorrow that watching this video gets me so pumped for our game against UofM. Even if I still know nothing about the game of football.
I have seen this article on The 50 States of Superfoods from The Huffington Post show up a few times in my Facebook newsfeed this week and I think it is awesome. As soon as I opened it up I scrolled all the way down to Michigan to see what our "state superfood" was and completely agree with it being asparagus. After being on the west side of the state for the asparagus festival this year, I can definitely say that Michigan is known for its asparagus! I think cherries could have been a contender too. Cherry season in Michigan is the besssst! But apparently Montana beat us out on that one.
As you can tell, I am pretty excited about this weekend so I am going to push publish and get ready for work before officially calling it the weekend. I worked my butt off last night to get my homework done and am ready to fully enjoy this weekend. GO GREEN!
Oh, and make me happy this weekend and enter my Puritan's Pride giveaway :). You can win protein powder, almond butter, superior greens powder, and carob powder --yes, all for you! Good luck!
Any football games on your schedule this weekend?
