I’m SO glad we didn’t go out late last night because I love waking up and feeling great in the morning. Makes me wonder how in the world I survived all those weekends in college where I thought it was “normal” to wake up and feel totally out of it, bloated from a few too many cocktails and searching for a bagel sandwich to cure my hangover.
This morning I had the same breakfast as yesterday—-two packets of Kashi Go Lean hot cereal with a banana and a scoop of Mighty Maple pb before we left to go to the Farmer’s Market
I can’t wait to have a Green Monster once I get home…..I’m missing them like crazy! Its weird, since I started having more and more Green Monsters for breakfast, meals like hot oatmeal almost seem too heavy for me and just sit in my tummy like a rock! A few of you have asked if GMs keep me full and the answer is YES.….when I make them with protein powder. They keep me full and energized all morning long. They never used to at first but then when I was more consistent with drinking them my body got more used to them and now having anything else doesn’t make me feel as good. Crazy!
After breakfast we walked for about an hour down by the market and around King Street. Everything was so pretty!
A gorgeous blue sky = perfect beach day!
I had a lovely piece of dark chocolate while we wandered:
And then we made our way to Kudu, an African coffee shop near Christie’s house that I used to frequent in college for some tea.
We are just waiting on Alissa to get here (she’s driving in from Charlotte for the day) and then we are heading out to soak up some rays all day. I’m trying to pack like crazy right now because, get this, I have to be OUT the door tomorrow morning at 6 am! I need to be home by 1:00 because tomorrow is my brother’s graduation day and the school asked my dad if he would accept the diploma for John. My family is going and sitting with the faculty and while I’m sure the service will be beautiful, it is going to be very, very, very difficult. I’m sort of mentally preparing myself right now for it actually.
We are probably going to grab lunch somewhere near the pier and then come back later this afternoon and have an early dinner.
Also, if you have emailed me in the past two days and I haven’t responded its because, for some reason, my server is down here. I can recieve emails but can’t send them…..I have no idea why and haven’t had time to make the call and fix it because we’ve been so busy. I promise to get back to you asap either tomorrow or Monday; sorry for the inconvenience!
