Going Green

by jenna on November 9, 2009

Good morning!!

Wow, what a weekend….and day yesterday! Another huge thank you to Adam as well as the folks at Matanzas Creek and Arrowood for hosting us so wonderfully. We had an absolute blast!

Last night Kath and I had a slumber party here in my little house in Healdsburg! It was FREEZING and for the first time, I opted to sleep with the heat on!

This morning, we had a breakfast on my famous floor. I made us Green Monsters to cleanse our systems after food and drink overload.


I used 1 banana, 1 scoop chocolate amazing meal, 1 cup milk, 1 huge handful spinach and 1 blob almond butter in each of our smoothies. And I am totally rocking my new favorite shirt that I got over the weekend. The back says “will work for tacos” and its awesome. :)

Kath and I are currently getting ready and then we are going for a walk to get some coffee! I promised I’d take her to the best coffee shop in the entire world. I’m taking her to the airport shuttle at 9:15, then I’m off to work for the day.

See you in a bit!!

A green monster sounds like the perfect antidote to an indulgent weekend – nourishing, yet cleansing! Wish I had some of that Best Coffee in the World! My Mr. Coffee machine is on its last legs…


Evan Thomas November 9, 2009 at 9:15 am

Sounds like a delicious smoothie!


Abby November 9, 2009 at 9:18 am

For your job now you should get shirts made up that say, “Will wine for work.” :) Yes, I am a cheeseball…


Stephanie @ Foodie McFood November 9, 2009 at 9:19 am

You’re just glowing in that picture. :) I love how you’re drinking the GM in a wine glass. 😉 Good fuel!


Sarah November 9, 2009 at 4:01 pm

Very nice to meet you this weekend!

You are very close by to me now- we try to make a trip to Napa/Sonoma at least twice a year, as well as Livermore and Santa Cruz wine country in between. We are spoiled in California, no?

If you are ever around the Peninsula, please drop me a line!


Sarah November 9, 2009 at 4:07 pm

Wow, the photo of you toasting wine is stunning, the sunshine is beautiful!
Don’t you LOVE California? I grew up in NorCal and would take day trips to Napa/Sonoma, try to take a hot air balloon ride one of these days!
Now I live in Hollywood, CA and when I itch to get some good wine I head over to Santa Barbara or Solvang :)
Thanks for sharing your adventures with us!


Brittany November 9, 2009 at 4:10 pm

Glad to see that you’re already getting use out of your tacolicious tee. Love it!


Chelsea (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) November 9, 2009 at 5:25 pm

Hope you two blogging champions have a great day! A green monster is a super positive start to a Monday.

Katy @ These Beautiful Feet November 9, 2009 at 5:59 pm

Ha, really cute shirt! Gotta love some green monsters to feel a healthy boost in the system! I love the pictures, you had to get a DSLR to capture the beauty of Napa! I love seeing your adventures in one of my favorite cities!
