Well the beach was a bust! 10 minutes into our drive on the freeway we entered a sucked in warp of pure fog!! What’s the point of living 15 minutes away from a beautiful scenic tanning spot when it’s foggy all summer long? We turned around and tanned in our own backyard 🙂 Where I caught up on some reading:
Nothing like trashy Cosmo on a hot sunny day!
I’m just starting the book Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner (author of the book In Her Shoes – ever seen the movie with Cameron Diaz??). I recently finished the book Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult. WOW this book was good. I highly recommend it. It’s about a guy who murders a lady’s husband and daughter and gets sentenced to death. 11 years later, the lady’s daughter needs a heart transplant, and the murderer wants to give his heart to her when he dies. While on death row, he also starts performing miracles similar to Jesus, and it starts a whole faith/spiritual questioning conflict thing to arise as well. Was really good, I’m tellin’ ya!
Speaking of Jodi Picoult, anyone going to see My Sister’s Keeper in theaters? I read that book as well, and my roommate and I are seeing the movie tonight!
Soaking up the rays while lying on a towel really took it out of me, and I got haaangry. Green Smoothie time!!
In the mix:
- Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- Frozen mango chunks
- Stuffed full of kale/chard mix
- Ground flaxseed
- Scoop of PB
Topped off with some granola. It was my first time trying it out with kale/chard rather than spinach (TJ’s was out yo) and with PB rather than almond butter. It tasted a lot more “grassy” than with spinach (but not in a bad way!) and I couldn’t taste the PB at all, while I could always taste the almond butter. But it was still refreshingly tasty!
I also had a little munchy snack a little later on:
Dipped into this garlic & spice cucumber yogurt dip. It reminded me of a thicker tzatziki.
Dinner was a major fail. I started to make a quesadilla, which became a pizza quesadilla, which became a huge flop when it wouldn’t flip in the pan, which became an open faced mess of sauce, cheese, sauteed onions, chopped up chicken burger, & guacamole on a soggy tortilla. It was still good though – but left me stuffed to the brim! I finished over an hour ago and I’m still stuffed!
Well I better get ready for our night on the town. Okay…just the movie, and then we might head to a few bars afterwards just to make an appearance (and say hi to a couple friends!).
