Bad news on the homefront.
I can’t find my camera!!! I have searched my bag, my car, my chef kit….everywhere. It’s nowhere to be found. This leads me to two possibilities. One, that I left it on the table at school last night and if I’m really lucky it will still be there tonight when I go in. Two, that someone stole it off the table when I wasn’t looking last night. I know everyone in my class so I can’t fully think that would happen (since I like to think the best of everyone)…but I’ve had kitchen tools stolen before so if they have the audacity to steal my tools they might steal my camera as well. Lets all just hope and pray and cross our fingers that the camera is still in my kitchen. I’m going in at five to continue working on cake decorating so I’ll be the first one there tonight anyways. Ugh! I’m sorry! What a disaster!!!!!! And I had tons of photos of my chocolate cake all ready to be posted this morning too :(. Not a good start to my Friday………
And, I didn’t go to the gym this morning because I accidentally slept in 40 minutes past when I need to wake up and get going. Lately I’ve just been SO tired in the mornings. It fades during the days and I’m fine, but in the mornings I just can’t pry myself out of my bed. Good thing summer break starts a week from today…..I need it!!!!
I made a smoothie for breakfast! I used a fresh banana, about a cup and a half of soymilk, a spoonful of pb and a few frozen strawberries. It was very yummy but left me very very chilly so I had to wrap myself with a blanket and make some tea. Haha, I’m always cold! I should know better!
For lunch, I’m just going to make a peanut butter sandwich on more of that homemade bread that Erin brought me at school (she brought us all another loaf the other night!). With it, I’m packing cherries (a whole baggie full) and more pretzel sticks as a snack. I’m boring with this lunch but its full of foods that I love and those honey wheat pretzels are soooo addicting and yummy. I love the crunch! If I wasn’t having a peanut butter sammie for lunch, I would pack peanut butter with my pretzels, but I’m eating dinner around 4:30 again to get to school super early so I only need a very light snack. I probably don’t even need a snack at all but I get so bored at work and love to eat. Haha 😉
Ryan is coming tonight to celebrate our anniversary weekend!!! Two years ago this weekend Ryan and I had our first date at, um, the Dave Chapell Show. It was sort of random and awkward since we didn’t know each other at all and had only just met one time in the elevator!!!! The next day I was going to my friend’s beach house for the weekend and invited him over to go to the beach and go to a baseball game with all my friends. He came, much to my surprise, and after a few drinks at the game, the rest was history! Hahahaha and I’m sure if anyone wants to know, Ryan can explain the whole humorous situation with me dropping hot dogs all over my jeans and meeting his entire family that night as well. Good times, good times………..;)
We almost got kicked out of the Louvre……
And had way too much fun at Ryan’s 30th Birthday Party….
Haha! I’ll try to update with more pictures during this weekend. I lost all our pictures from our first year because my laptop crashed in Europe and I lost everything! grrr

Good luck finding your camera, Jenna! If you don’t maybe you can beg someone to buy you a belated birthday present? Haha. Even without photos, your post was still entertaining, I loved that story about how you and Ryan spent your first few days together!
LittleblackdressJune 20, 2008 at 12:54 pm
Jenna- I will keep my fingers crossed- re- your camera. I’m sure your cake is gorgoeous. And, best of all, mucho congratulations on your anniversary- Ryan seems like such a wonderful boyfriend. I hope you two really enjoy your time together.
Re- your lunch- don’t you just love eating “the classics” that you know you love and will keep you satisfied? Enjoy!
arielleJune 20, 2008 at 1:10 pm

Katie SJune 20, 2008 at 1:13 pm
Grr I hate when that happens! I always manage to leave things behind/lose everything!! I hope you find your camera, Jenna… but don’t stress too much!! This is a weekend for celebration!! Ryan sounds like such a keeper and I love your story of your first date… too good!!! I’m just like that as well… I always manage to embarrass myself at the least opportune times haha! Have a great weekend!! And don’t worry about the camera!!!
raybelleJune 20, 2008 at 1:22 pm
sorry about the camera jenna! i hope it shows up.
i have a question re. bread:
do you have a bread recipe that you created that you would be willing to post online? or a source you could refer me to?
i need a new one–preferably whole wheat!
if anyone else has a good reference, please let me know;)
have a wonderful day, all!
MelissaJune 20, 2008 at 1:35 pm
Aw, happy anniversary!! Those pictures are adorable!!
Good luck finding the camera!! That sucks! If it makes you feel any better, I’ve broken 3 digital cameras within the last 2 years….Needless to say, now we always buy the protection thing on them they try to sell you 🙂
melissaJune 20, 2008 at 1:53 pm
I really hope you find your camera! Poor thing. My sunglasses were stolen at work last week and I was devasted. On a happier note, I will be thinking of you this weekend because I am going to try and back an Almond Pear Clafouti from the Food Network’s French Recipe Collection. I am not sure what a clafouti is, but it looks good on the website pic. Have a great weekend.
melJune 20, 2008 at 2:13 pm
maybe you could try to call school today to see if they find it before people have class in there? good luck jenna!!
HeatherJune 20, 2008 at 2:17 pm
Oh no! I’m so sorry about the camera- that’s such a bad feeling to not know where it is 🙁 I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.
Happy Anniversary! That last picture is priceless!
CourtneySJune 20, 2008 at 2:33 pm
Melissa, a clafouti is a classic French dessert usually made with cherries, but pears are wonderful, too! It’s super simple and tasty – the fruit is on the bottom and you top it with a thin batter that is very similar to pancake batter. It’s almost as simple as pancakes, actually. Enjoy.
Jenna, this is actually my first comment on your blog but I’ve been reading for awhile. I hope you find your camera and thanks for posting all these fun pictures lately! Have a great anniversary.
jessyJune 20, 2008 at 2:33 pm

BethTJune 20, 2008 at 2:53 pm
Haha did you almost get kicked out for standing too close to the art? Same thing happened to me at MOMA in NYC….oops.
RuneatrepeatJune 20, 2008 at 2:57 pm
Happy Anniversary! I love stories of how people started dating. Very cute.
tfhJune 20, 2008 at 3:01 pm
Those pictures are adorable. Happy anniversary weekend. It looks like you two can just have fun and be silly together– yay! That is truly romantic. And to think it all started with you making a mess of some hot dogs (story???). btw, I am crossing my fingers you’ll find your camera for totally selfish reasons: I was looking forward to seeing that cake!
TinaJune 20, 2008 at 3:31 pm
Oh, man… that is the worst! I hope you find your camera soon! I left mine at work the other day, and I felt so naked with out it! I take photos of everything!
kristin pointJune 20, 2008 at 3:51 pm

AshliquaJune 20, 2008 at 7:40 pm
I really hope you can find your camera…I know I get so anxious when I misplace my camera or cell phone or iPod or any number of my other electronic “appendages”!
Hope you have an amazing anniversary weekend!
Amanda KJune 20, 2008 at 8:10 pm
Hey Jenna! Just want to tell you that I love your blog, this blog a long with several others have helped me live a vegan lifestyle. I don’t know if you remember but I emailed you like a month ago concerning running and irregular womanly cycle matters, haha. Just want to thank you for your suggestions, they REALLY helped!! I just made my own blog!! I’m so excited about it… hopefully I’ll be able to figure everything out soon!
Amanda KJune 20, 2008 at 8:12 pm
i forgot to put my website… this is going to take a little getting used to. hehe have a wonderful day!
NicoleJune 21, 2008 at 2:16 am

Hi everyone, my stupid Internet is down so I hopefully it will be back up later this morning.
happyherbivoreJune 21, 2008 at 2:23 pm
Happy belated birthday to Ryan
Happy Anniversary to the both of you!
I hope you find your camera soon, dear. I know how stressful misplaced things can be.
p.s. LOOOOOOOVE the photos, thanks for sharing.
AlisonJune 21, 2008 at 2:42 pm
Hey to the poster about running and women issues- what were the suggestions? I’m having similar problems. I’ve been told to cut back on exercise and eat more fat. Did you try those things? Did they bring the cycles back? Thanks!

Jenna, it’s really sad to know about your camera, don’t loose heart, wishing you good luck & hope you’ll find it.
Even without photograph you picture your breakfast and lunch stuff very well, keep up the good work.
Happy anniversary weekend! You and Ryan are looking adorable.
