This post is going to have to be on the shorter side because I have a 13 page paper to work on in French before I head off to practice! It’s not due until Tuesday, but I also have a problem set due later today (which is mostly done), and I don’t have any time to do work this weekend.
Why is that, you ask? Well, let’s get to Friday Favourites to find out! As always, thanks to Heather for hosting this link-up!
Matches vs Harvard and Dartmouth
We play Harvard and Dartmouth this weekend at home!!! Time to take down some Crimson and Big Green ;). (Side note: Why are their mascots just colours…?)
Anyway, that’s definitely #1 on my Friday Favourite’s this week, because our team has been training really hard, and is super excited to play our first match at home in 2015! I’ll be sure to recap on Monday after the matches have all finished :).
We also have our senior dinner this weekend, where all of the seniors’ parents come to watch, followed by a nice fancy dinner! It’s always a ton of fun, because the juniors write speeches about us 4th years, and they never fail to embarrass each and every player. I did my speech last year, and can honestly say it was both fun and emotional to get up there and speak about your teammate of 3 years. We’ve got some characters in the current senior class, so I’m nervous but also excited to see what the juniors come up with!
Jocelyn infinity scarf
Hadley got me this scarf by Jocelyn as a belated birthday/Christmas present, and I am obsessed with it! It’s super cozy, and funnily enough, is a great studying accessory!
Although it’s small, this scarf has the comfort of your favourite blanket, so you don’t have to bring that excessively large item with you. Okay, to be honest I have never brought a blanket/sleeping bag or anything of the sort to to the library, but am now kind of contemplating the idea… Snuggie, anyone?!
Overnight oats comeback
It’s been too cold out, (and I’ve been too impatient), so I’ve been eating breakfast in my room lately instead of walking allll the way to a dining hall or Eating club. (Quick fact, yes we have these things at Princeton called “Eating club”, where some upperclassmen eat their meals).
My go-to easy to make meal? Overnight oats!!!
This morning’s combo was particularly good, which included:
- 1/2 container plain 0% Greek yogurt
- 1 container (minus the fruit on the bottom) 2% Strawberry Banana Greek yogurt
- 1/2 Tbsp Chia seeds (I’m all out now! 🙁 )
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1-2 Tbsp peanut butter, swirled into the mixture
- enough milk to get things moving
Festive interior light decor
At the end of last year, my friend Johanna (the one who gave me the S’well water bottle for my birthday!), was passing on a bunch of her things to others, much of which was barely used IKEA stuff. Sadly I missed the boat for the IKEA furniture, but I was able to score a few other things, including these small LED bulb lights!
I love how lights add a bit of pizazz (<– second time in my life I think I’ve ever said that word) to a room- especially a dorm room! Thanks again, Johanna!
Remember during the summer when my orange and black Klipsch headphones completely died? It was fortunate that I was completely obsessed with Unite during this team, so I didn’t need headphones for working out, but once I got back to school, I sure felt like something was missing!
Since my headphones were still under their year warranty, I sent them back a couple of months ago, requesting a new pair. Don’t you just lovveeee how slow the mail process can be sometimes? Well, when I returned to school this January, my headphones had finally arrived for me in the mail!
They really do have great sound quality, but I am hoping that these ones last! And if they don’t, well then I’m hoping I can redeem yet another warranty :).
Okay, time for me to head off! Not only do I have work to do, but there’s also this annoying bird outside my window whose “call” sounds much like a human hiccup. Gah, birds!
What are you loving this week?
Have you ever used Klipsch headphones? Good or bad reviews?
What are your thoughts on overnight oats?
