It’s official. I am in love with my new apartment. The outside is terribly tacky (trust me on this) but the inside is great! I can’t wait to give y’all a tour once things are a little more organized. There’s lots of windows and sunlight always seems to be streaming in. Plus, there’s a pool. Priorities, people. One of the boyfriend’s friends from home is actually moving in directly two floors below me so we are all going to be one big happy family.
After lugging up one more load last night I declared it time for a burrito.
I met the boy at this little Mexican hole in the wall and while we had a bit of trouble finding it (read: me getting incredibly frustrated and almost running over the curb), it was so worth it! This was a vegetarian burrito with no sour cream and it was filled with pinto beans, avocado and veggies with spicy salsa. I’m incredibly spoiled with delicious Mexican food here in California…love love love!
Moving all day + burrito in my belly = passing out.
I woke up in an incredibly great mood this morning because………….
(drum roll please)
IT’S VEGGIE BOX DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I joined the CSA program with Redwood Empire Farm
here in Santa Rosa and have been waiting like a little kid in December for this magical day to arrive. The day of my first veggie box! Every Thursday all summer long I will be picking up my box filled with local organic produce from Three Dog Yoga
(the drop-off spot). For only $20 a week, it’s a really affordable way to eat well and get yo veggies!
Is it normal I am THIS excited for a box of vegetables?
Because I am.
And I’m even more excited to put them in my new kitchen. Fava bean hummus in my new kitchen….DOES IT GET ANY BETTER????
Anyways, because I’m moving and my life and sanity is scattered between two cities, I ate a simple little breakfast this morning.
I think these Amazing Grass
protein bars are the only bars that actually fill me up for a meal. They have 270 calories and 12 grams of protein and I always feel great after eating them. If they fill me up, they will fill you up. I wake up a ravenous beast in the morning. Just ask Dexter.
I was supposed to go on a 5 hour bike ride today but I’m rainchecking it. I feel a lot better but still am congested and have a cough and don’t want to push it. As anxious I am about the Fondo
next weekend, I think it would be more detrimental for me to ride today when I’m not feeling 100%.

And have a lovely day. I shall return with a bounty of veggies.
