No, not the cars…those horrible things! The real thing!

So for today’s post, I could care less about food, but I did have some yummy stuff, so I will share that, but otherwise I’m going to show you the more exciting thing I got to do today: hold a HUMMINGBIRD!!!

Ok, food:

I made the mistake of running very late last night after having a late snack, then wasn’t feeling well throughout the day, so kinda skipped dinner entirely and went to bed early, as I was exhausted and just in a foul mood in general.  Therefore, today I was absolutely famished and my hunger could not control myself.

Breakfast: My greek yogurt it back!!!!  As much as I would have loved to have my Fage (soooo expensive) my next favorite is Oikos so I bought that…and I was all smiles this morning:

Seriously, I was like a three year old with candy when this was happening.  I was super excited as hawks and hummingbirds are my two favorite kinds of birds and geez…i can’t even explain how uppidy I was!  And still am!  My parents just laughed at my exhilaration about the whole thing.  LOL.

Ok, now I need to try to sleep…and dream hummers.  I so want a certificate to do this!!!!

    That's so exciting! I got to hold a hummingbird once last year. My cat brought him inside THROUGH her cat door. She had him in her mouth and was just sitting in the kitchen looking at me. I took him away and the poor little bird looked like he was going to have a heart attack, especially with her yowling pitifully at me. I should've taken pictures!
