rise and shine

Have you entered my LARABAR giveaway yet?! You have until Friday to enter here!

Today officially feels like the first day of waking up to Daylight Savings, because let’s be honest, I was in no rush to wake up early yesterday morning. But, this morning, I had to wake up early so I could enjoy my new tea!

Ok, I actually didn’t wake up just to enjoy my tea. I like to get a head start on my morning by organizing my work cut out for me that day or week (can you say list-making?!), get lecture notes printed and trying to get some homework questions done for my chem course, if I can!

I did have to drink the tea this morning though. Reason? I got a total score on it yesterday. Listen to this breakdown:

Originally $5.79, on blowout sale for $2.99, plus I had a $2 off coupon. You do the math people. It was impossible to pass up and it was delicious. Extreme Couponers…watch out!

You know what else was impossible to pass up yesterday? A pomegranate.

I haven’t expressed my obsession with pomegranates on this blog yet only because they have not been available (or someone has been hiding them!) for a looooong time at the grocery stores in my town. My mouth almost dropped to the floor when I found them yesterday during our grocery run. Let’s just say this thing didn’t last long…at all. I, of course, gave myself the half that I felt had more arils than the husband’s. It was gone in about 5 minutes flat.

Although it was expensive (I doubt anyone else would be as crazy as me to pay the amount they were), it was worth it, but unfortunately, I cannot buy 5 of them in a week like I used to when they were half the price.

It’s totally what helped with the easy rising this morning! Read: I think pomegranates are the secret drug  to staying healthy…I’m not kidding.

Since I’m done the rising part (I’m actually on campus now!), I still have the ‘shining’ part to fulfill. So, in the spirit of my larabar giveaway, I decided to indulge myself and bring one for my lunch. Blueberry Muffin sure does make me (or anyone) shine because it’s sooooo delicious!

There you have it. Happy Monday!
QUESTION: What helps you rise and shine each morning?!
