Well, little Dex made it through his first vet visit! The shot didn’t even make him wince….but the thermometer up his bum really made the little guy squirm. Regardless, he made it through and many a cat treat later he is now under the bed while Ryan and his friend watch the Draft in the other room and I am about to shower and get ready for the wedding!
After the vet, we brought Dex over to my parent’s house so I could search my old closet and find a dress to wear tonight and so my mom could see Dex. I have to say, Dexter and Mikan get along better than I would have imagined. Of course, Mikan just wants to play and Dexter hides under a chair….but at least they aren’t killing eachother! It’s sort of cute actually 🙂
I got my favorite wrap in the whole world for a treat today. Hummus, quinoa tabbouli and kale salad on a sprouted wheat wrap of course! I ate every single one of the delicious veggie chips that it was served with and as a result felt a little bloated afterwards but it was def. worth it. The real treat of the day, however, was the bookstore trip with my mom! I picked up two new books: “Souvenir” by Therese Fowler and “Unaccustomed Earth” by one of my favorite authors, Jhumpa Lahiri. I also got Vegan with a Vengeance!! I sort of had to beg my mom for this because I do have sooo many cookbooks….but I tried to convince her it was an early birthday present (my birthday is in early june, haha) and she relented. I can’t wait to start cooking out of this! I just want to go lay out by the pool now and read the whole thing cover to cover. I’ve heard great things about it.
Because I didn’t get my morning run in, I just hit the gym upstairs for a quick 20 minute cardio session. I also got a 15 minute walk in earlier today as well. I’m a true believer that walking is exercise and if Americans did more of it, obesity wouldn’t be such a problem. I could rant on that all day long— I’ll spare you! Anyways, after the gym I made an apple with almond butter for a filling snack because who knows when and what dinner will be tonight. I’m bringing a larabar AND a probar (never tried this before) in my purse “just in case”. I will bring my camera with me though and report back in the morning!
Have a great Saturday night!
