Off To Work

Hey guys! Quick post before cupcake time.

This morning we surfed instead because there were actually waves and it hurts to walk because of my blister! 🙁


Let me just tell you, surfing is a workout! All that paddling really works all the muscles in your arms and back and it takes a lot of balance to actually stand up on the board. I’m definitely still learning but its a lot of fun!

Lunch was a gardenburger with swiss cheese and hummus on an english muffin with melon!


And now we are heading to “work”! Some of you have asked how I randomly got this little gig for the week and the answer is that one of our friends from high schools little sister opened up this shop a week ago and they are desperately needing any help they can get! Vero is a very very small town and when Ryan (our high school friend) found out Christie and I were back in town for a few days he immediately asked if we would be willing to help out for a couple hours daily this week. Wahoo!

I shall return!

    So nice of you to help out a friend. I bet she really appreciates having a trained chef to help 🙂

    I would love to try surfing someday. But that would involve being somewhere near waves…one day…one day.

    Your week in Vero is making me so homesick! Looks like you and Christie are having a blast… Remember the days when Christie was super into Celine Dion and we would blast it by her pool? haha

    Kathleen told me about you blog. It is amazing! Definitely has given me great food ideas… I’m so impressed!

    Have so much fun in Vero!

    I’ve been surfing on and off for 15 yrs ( steady for the last 7 ) I’m 33. Surfing has changed my life, my mind and my body. I highly recommend it! Of course, it’s so much easier when the water is warm and clear:-) Aloha, Amanda C.

    Surfing is so fun but so hard! I’ve only tried it once and it was a bit of a fail! Haha. I was young though so maybe I should give it another shot…
    Still can’t get over how gorge your hometown is – and can’t wait to see some cupcake action!

    I didn’t know you surfed! I guess you said you were learning tho….

    I do too! But I haven’t used my board in like a year. If you’re ever around Orlando we should go together! (not that orlando has surf… but cocoa does!)
