Holly runs on Dunkin’

Yes she does.


My friend Stephanie–classmate, running and study partner–and I met up at our usual hangout this afternoon for the first study session of the semester. What you see is my super-smart lunch…or not. What this post should REALLY say is, “Holly runs on Dunkin’… Until she doesn’t.” An hour and a half later, I was in a sugar coma and craving vegetables in a bad way. I’m not normally a Subway fan, but at 3:30 and facing a Target run, I needed something.

But, I digress. Poor snack choices aside, it felt good to be back in the study groove, in our booth, at our Dunkin’.

*STILL working on the post about last weekend’s trip to Ohio… Enjoy this in the meantime!

So, Friday after Christmas, Regina and I FINALLY (and I mean finally–we hadn’t seen each other since JULY) got together for a brunch date.  Where did we go? A cute-as-can-be little creperie in Buffalo near the zoo.  Andrew and I had actually pointed it out before while driving by and remarked that it was a must-try.


We ordered coffee first–a regular for her and a Vanilla Ginger Latte for me.  I was all set to get a regular coffee (cheaper, fewer calories), but the word ‘ginger’ on the menu caught my eye and I couldn’t resist.


There was even a hunk of crystallized ginger in the mug!  I would definitely get it again.  Andrew is a huge crepe fan (who knew?), so I’m sure we’ll find our way back there at some point.

When we decided on our breakfast, it was a nutella and banana topped crepe for Regina and a baked-brie-filled, sauteed apples-topped crepe for me.  Heavenly.


And, fingers-crossed, Regina and I have another date coming up next week.  This time, we’ll probably partake in a little frozen yogurt…


It’s been a long day.

Heck, it’s been a long week! And it’s only Wednesday…


I redeemed my free drink card today and the girls behind the counter made me get a large. (They know me.)

I’m trying the gingerbread latte, in hopes it will boost my mood and energy level. Here’s to 3 hours of management and chemistry work before lab…
