So I have got some super huge amazing news!
But first onto some fun packages that Mr. UPS Man delivered to me today.
I won a giveaway over on one of my newest favorite fitness blogs, Ripped Bodies and Jodie Pilates, for a Gaiam Pilates dvd. I am so excited to try this out. I have been wanting to try out pilates for the longest time, and I have been looking for something to shake up my workout routine and I think that this could be it.
Package number two was from Lele over at Lele Lurves Plants. I was the winner of her giveaway for her one year blog anniversary! 🙂 I was so surprised at how huge the box was, she filled it to the brim with so many goodies.
Who wouldnt want to recieve this in the mail?
The box had both vegan and non-vegan treats (which Earth Mama was happy to help me out with! :))
Lele totally hooked me up with some cookies from Newman’s Own Organics. Both flavors of the Newman-O’s are vegan, but sadly the Fig Newmans are not which totally bummed me out. I do love figs!
Cool candies and other goodies from… Thailand? China? I’m not the best with other languages, I can barley speak spanish. The downside to these is that I cant read the ingredients, which means I cant tell what they are made out of. If there is anyone out there who recognizes the language on these packaging wanna help a girl out and do a little translating? 😉
Burt’s Bees coconut foot cream, lavender soap from Asia, Newman’s Own Organic’s peppermints, Burt’s Bees lipbalm and a really cute elephant key chain.
Lele thank you so much for the wonderful package. Congratulations again on one year of blogging, and I wish you many many more! 🙂
Okay so now onto my super exciting news.
Last week I was able to visit Mount Union, which is just a few hours away from my house. After getting to tour the campus again (and drooling over my adorable tour guide!), and getting to talk to the executive chef about getting more vegan options in the cafateria I had a lot to think about.
Over the past couple months I have been really developing, and getting to know myself better. I feel like I have grown so much and have come so far in such a short amount of time. After talking to many of you and getting advice (and you all putting up with my constant ponderings and whinings) I have finally come to a decision!
Can you take a guess?
Why yes that is a poster of Edward Cullen in the background… dont tell my boyfriend. 😉
I’m going to MOUNT UNION!
Mount Union is such an amazing school and has so much to offer me. Plus I know that once I get there I will be able to meet other people who have similar ideals as myself (and maybe start up a vegan potluck or two on the way who knows!) Even though they don’t have my intended major of study which was Nutritional Science, I am going to be majoring in Health and then triple minoring in Business, Exercise Science and Communications and Journalism.
As far as my career goes I would love to do something within the health field, and for a long time I thought I wanted to become a registered dietitian. While I am still interested in pursuing that, I ultimately want to open my own business where I will do nutritional counseling, operate my own vegan cafe with an emphasis on healthy foods, and teach Zumba, yoga and pilates classes. Oh and I wouldn’t mine doing a little writing, or public relations work too.
I feel so relieved that I have finally made a decision. Now I can finally try to relax a little bit and enjoy the end of my senior year.
Tonight in honor of earth day tomorrow a local college campus is having an all you can eat vegan buffet. I cant wait! I’m ready to eat lots of yummy food, and spend some time with friends. Pictures and a full re-cap to come tomorrow.
Question of the day – Where did/do you go to college?
