It's snowing its pouring Deborah's spring break is boring! :P

Did you like my little rhyme? So my spring break has tragically been invaded by snow! sad day! I had all these grand plans of spending my spring break outside (tanning, walking, sitting). But alas, the clouds have decided to grace us with the presence of snow! Oh well! Might as well enjoy it! :D

so last night I went to a really fun/interesting/exciting class! I, my five readers (:P), am going to start a vegetable and herb garden! I went to a class with my mom, becky (sister), mike (bro-in law), and a friend that was about how to have a successful vegetable garden in my city. It was about an hour and a half long of all this interesting information on how to grow veggies and herbs! I am very excited! I can't wait to grow rosemary, oregano, basil, zuccini, beets, lettuce, swiss chard (favorite), carrots, potatoes, and so much more!  We already have a raised up garden that looks like this:

But I don't think it is going to be big enough to hold all that we want. So we are thinking of building one in our side yard that contains gravel. And then we are thinking of planting the herbs in separate pots because they tend to spread and invade the veggies! It is going to be great! I love fresh and organic produce and herbs! It should be fun to do as an activity/hobby with my mom too!

So we went and saw that "Adjustment Bureau (took me about fifteen times to spell that word right)". It was poopy. Don't see it. I was very disappointed. It was pretty much a slap in the face directed towards God. I was very offended by the message it had and would not recommend it to anyone. Oh and it was dead boring too. Hardly ANY action. That car crash moment in the trailer was THE ONLY car crash and only real "action packed" moment. Yeah Mat Damon punch two people and pushed a person but that was it. (I sound like a 15 year old boy) The acting was terrible except for Emily Blunt. I love her. :D It was still fun to go though! 

As far as recovery goes.....it is going really well. Still have my hard moments but it gets easier every day. Last night I got into an argument with my sister. I was feeling really down on myself afterwards and therefore wanted to just skip dinner. I seriously was thinking "Why am I recovering? I am such a mess up and failure anyways. Might as well punish myself and not eat." I sat their and battled whether or not to eat. Then I started thinking about how much I have gained since I have recovered. And I thought about how not eating is NOT going to solve my problems, make me happier, or make people like me more. So I ate! And it was yummy too! My amazing sister made oatmeal pancakes, eggs, potatoes, and fruit for dinner! These pancakes were THE BEST PANCAKES EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously! She added tons of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves which made them kind of spicy! OH YUM! I just love strong flavored food! Oh and then right before she flipped them she sprinkled slivered almonds on top. They added a great crunch! (oh and you better believe I spread pb on top of these and then syrup and then yogurt! YUM!)
Oh and GUESS WHAT!?!?!??! I am 5 pounds from my goal weight. Five! Thats it! How has this gone SO FAST!?!??!? I just want it to be over. I am so tired of weighing myself, journaling my food, and trying to gain weight. I want to get back to a life where eating isn't what I am focused on. I want to stop worrying about how much I weigh! I am so over it. 5 pounds to freedom. Hahah! Well I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Its YOU time!
When is your spring break?
Do you like snow?
Do you like lots of spice and flavor in your foods?

My sister and I had a garden last year and while we didn't get a very large crop, it was alot of fun.

I LOVE highly seasoned food! I love cinnamon, ginger, cumin, cayenne pepper, cloves, cardamom... all sorts of spices. yum! (I also like snow, but we don't get any where I live. :( )

I'm so happy that you're doing well. Keep up the good work!

I can assure you you have more than 5 readers. I bet I am not the only one who just doesn't have time to comment or fight with a stubborn cookie-intolerant browser :D .

Congrats on your little garden! It's great to have a place where you can grow your own yummy vegetables. It's easier to love food when you've made everything yourself :) .

"Spring break" is not exactly a break for me. For me it's a month of switching universities, cities, countries and includes endless fights with bureaucracy. Blah! I hope it's worth it.
