April 2014: One of the Best Months

April has always been my favorite month for as long as I can remember. This past April pretty much takes the cake though.

I kicked off the month with a trip to Charlottesville with my roommate and completed my second marathon.

Found out I was matched to Cal Poly SLO and placed in the beautiful Santa Barbara.

Walked the 3.2 for 32 to remember the 32 beautiful Hokies who are no longer with us

and ate some epic food

Food

Crazy to think that in 9 short days I will be a college graduate. Yikes – don’t think I am ready for that! However, I am really REALLY excited to begin a new chapter in my life…especially since it takes me one step closer to my dream job. The California weather doesn’t hurt either ;)

Before the Hype

Before the recent hype of all things coconut, I was already addicted. It’s true – ask my roommate. In fact, she even said that’s one thing she thought was “cool” about me (Yes, I took this as a high compliment considering we had a love/hate relationship at the time). Ever since the boom of coconut as a healthy saturated fat, everything now comes in coconut flavor. I can’t complain – it just allows me to get my coconut fix multiple times throughout the day. For instance, I can get it at breakfast

or for snacks

bars

as a mix-in

jars

for pancakes…

In a nutshell, I find a way to eat coconut every day. It is truly one of my favorite flavors.

Your turn: what is one flavor you can’t live without?
