Online Shopping Just Got Better

Hey guys!

So, I’m looking back over the food I ate today and it’s SUPER random. Don’t hate–just one of those days I guess!

This morning I went to an awesome spinning class. It was so funny–the instructor was this super cute pregnant woman and instead of being on the bike, she roamed around the room the whole time, shouting and encouraging us while blasting truly amazing music. I’m convinced the secret to spinning is music, no?! πŸ™‚

When I got home, I tried take 2 on protein ice cream.


Unfortunately, it was more of a backfire than I anticipated. I used waaaay too much ice and therefore it was more like a flavorless shaved ice than anything else. I ate it anyway though and then I was super cold and stood under a hot shower for 20 minutes to defrost. Oh well. Note to self: next time don’t add entire tray of ice creams.

Lunch was a big salad with 2 chopped soy hot dogs and a light babybel cheese topped with hummus and hot sauce with kabocha (!!!) and an orange on the side.



I’ve determined that kabocha squash expands in my belly like none other and I was too full to finish my orange at the end of my meal! Rarely do I not clean my plate so that’s sayin’ something right there.

This afternoon I ran errands and lusted after MacBook Pros at the apple store. I know I need a new laptop but can’t decide to get a new MacBook or upgrade to a MacBook Pro. I’m definitely a mac kind of girl…no PCs allowed in this house. Thoughts?

Snack was an unpictured Pure Bar…I figure y’all have seen them all before. πŸ˜‰

And dinner was pretty random, too….but surprisingly incredibly delicious!


I’m here to tell you tonight that there are three things that can go on anything: hummus, almond butter and hot sauce. Just don’t combine the three together. πŸ˜‰ This would be an omelet with 3 egg whites, 1 yolk smothered in hummus and hot sauce with MORE squash. Yes, more. It was literally calling my name from the fridge and I had to eat it. I think I’m addicted. Especially when it’s cold!!! Anyways, hummus on eggs is delicious if you’ve never tried it.

I took Caitlin’s advice and had a glass of wine while I wrote….Caitlin, you were right—wine makes the words flow! πŸ˜‰


And then I ate a pear with almond butter and chocolate chips. Again, almond butter goes on anything. Done and done.



Let me introduce y’all to the Michel-Schlumberger 2009 Holiday Catalog!

I’ve received countless emails from you guys, asking for my wine advice or what I recommend. Well, here you go! By ordering from our catalog, you can get a taste of what I taste daily here in Healdsburg. All the items in the catalog are extremely discounted AND you will receive free shipping as well on anything you order. We don’t distribute very heavily so this is an easy and convenient way to enjoy our wines.

We produce world class, organic wine here at Michel-Schlumberger and are best known for our big, bold Cabernets. Ten percent of the proceeds from catalog sales go to the Healdsburg Education Foundation, supporting vital programs in our local public schools. If you are ever in the winery, we also donate half of the sales from tours and tastings to the same foundation because we feel so strongly about it.

What are my favorites?

Everything! I’m more of a red wine girl and I just loooooove our 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Deux Terres and Pinot Noir. If you like Pinots, ours is really special because we are actually the only Pinot Noir producer in all of Dry Creek Valley here. It’s what I love to give to guests to wow them because you can really taste the terroir (earth, sun, wind, rain…) in the wine and it’s very unique and complex. The Pinot Blanc is a SUPER light white wine and perfect for those interested in diving into wine but a little scared. It’s really light and easy to drink….I always recommend it to wine newbies. πŸ˜‰

We’ve set up a special promo code especially for you guys on the site, so when you order, type in Jenna in the tab for special offers when you check-out.

Bad news is we can’t ship to Kentucky, Maryland, Tennessee, Utah, Massachusetts or King of Prussia, PA (don’t ask).

    Yep, it’s the music that makes a great spin class…especially at 6am (when I go)!

    Oh yeah, I have a Macbook Pro which is wonderful but I use a lot of software that needs a powerful machine (admittedly mine has been modified to be more powerful). You’ll probably be fine with a Macbook (although in saying that, the Pro has great speakers so really you can’t go wrong either way!!).

    I have a MacBook Pro (the older, all silver model) and I love it so much! I can never go back to a PC now, so I know how you feel. The regular MacBooks are cute and awesome too, so I think it depends on what you will be using it for and budget. The Pro is more powerful, but not as easy to carry around, and its much more expensive than MacBook. If you don’t mind the slightly older model of the Pro, you may be able to find one online for a good price. πŸ™‚

    I love spinning – and yes, I think it is the music! I can have an incredible workout session if the music is great! There are certain songs that will get me every time – like Christina Aguliera’s (sp?) “Fighter”. I could be so unmotivated and that song can come on and I completely change! I love it.

    Keep spinning! I’m still waiting to get on a bike – my foot injury is keeping me off. Boo!

    I used to have a MacBook Pro, and now I have a MacBook. Unless you are running lots of huge programs like for graphic design, you will be totally fine with a Mac Book. I basically use mine for Internet, word processing, and basic photo editing/storage, etc. If you want to get into Photoshop though you might be better off with the upgrade, but honestly you can do lots of basic photo editing with a simple lightweight program. I like the simplicity of the MacBook, and I like that it’s smaller. FYI you can also get a refurbished laptop if you don’t want to splurge on a new one…

    Macbook all the way. The pro is just more computer than most people need. : ) I just started spinning and I’m soooo addicted. My first class (last week!) was 90 mins and I was determined to make it longer than the pregnant lady did. I made it through the whole thing and now I’m hooked. I think it is all about the music.

  • Mary Cressler
    December 1, 2009 at 9:44 pm

    I gotta interject about spin classes. I’ve been taking classes for a few years now and am passionate about the music selection. It makes or breaks the class for sure! 2 weeks ago I was traumatized when my teacher played (all in the same class), light rock, Huey Louis & the News, Backstreet Boys, and Bob Segars “Like a Rock”. This is just NOT OKAY for a spin class! I went back today, for my first time back since the “incident” and the same teacher was there. I almost walked out, but she saw me, so I gave her a second chance (barely). She stepped up her music selection a bit today, but still played Backstreet Boys.
    I hope you can feel my pain.
    PS, I love my MacBook. I almost went with the Pro, but didn’t (and still don’t) see the need for the increase in price and storage size, unless you’re storing lots of video on it.

    I’ve always been a Mac girl and have the MacBook while my husband has the MBPro (he’s a developer). I do like his bigger screen (and they say size doesn’t matter).

    BUT I did just have my 3 year-old hard drive fail and lost everything because I’d never backed up except for photos. Guy at Apple Store says “hard drives fail” so make sure to back up! I’m not sure if all new models come with Time Machine but if you don’t have that, have something because it’s taken me weeks to get over the grief (3 years of IE bookmarks!!!!!).

    as far as the computer question goes: i’m a junior at uc berkeley and LOVE my macbook pro. i am not exaggerating when i say love. i would definitely upgrade for the very reason that all of my friends with regular macs have had at least one hard drive crash since the beginning of college (that’s 2.5 years). i’ve had my computer for 3 and it hasn’t (knock on wood) crashed once. it’s also a great computer for watching movies, etc–has a beautiful screen–and even though it’s slightly heavier, i still manage to carry it to class to take notes with no problems. hope that helps!

I have a Macbook Pro 15 inch, because I need it for work (video editing). If you want to save some dosh, I would probably just look at a MacBook since you’re pretty much just going to be writing, surfing the web, and uploading photos onto it.

    You are so right about spinning and music. It’s the difference between having to grit it out and the time passing quickly. Well, as quickly as it can pass on a spin bike. πŸ™‚

    As for the MacBook vs. Pro debate, of course you’ll be happy with either but unless you’re going to need a lot more power and memory, I’d stick with the MacBook and then get an external hard drive for all your photos. That is what I did and I use my MacBook for similar things as you probably do (writing, photo processing, Internet, music/iTunes). Having that external hard drive for photos will save a TON of memory in the long run and really reduce the need for the more powerful Pro, in my opinion.

    I am a graphic designer and have used Macs for the past 10 years. A MacBook Pro for anyone who doesn’t process mass amounts of graphics (ie. super high res layered psd files and the such) is spending far too much money for what they need. If I were you Jenna, I would stick to the regular MacBook and save yourself the extra $$. The MacBook is an incredibly good laptop and will MORE then be able to handle blogging and photo purposes. Just buy an external hard drive to pull your photos off onto every so often so they don’t eat up tons of memory on your computer which will slow it down!

Obviously you should get what’s best for you but I know pro’s a few hundred extra so maybe it could save you some mula!

    I’m going through the same MacBook/Pro dilemma. I have a MacBook now and I think I’m leading towards getting a Pro. Everyone that I know who has them says that it is worth it and especially since you spend so much time on the computer, I’d say go for it!

    I love your blog!

    I just wanted to comment and say to spend the extra $ (it’s not much…) for a Macbook Pro over the Macbook. The aluminum and glass are simply magnificent.

    Keep up the tasteful cooking and drinking! πŸ™‚

    I love my MacBook. I actually got it before the Pro came out, but mine has all the same features…weird. My husband just bought the pro and loves it!

    I LOVE hummus and egg whites as well. I made a wrap for lunch with the m the other day with some hot sauce and lettuce in it. yummers!

    I just had to replace my macbook and chose to get the new macbook pro instead of a regular macbook. My justification was that they’re not really that much more expensive than when I bought my macbook, and even if the prices of the macbook have gone down, I kind of felt like I deserved an upgrade.
    The new macbook pros are great, and I would highly recommend them.
    Good luck with the book!

    I have a 15″ Macbook Pro, and I love it! It’s lightweight and very sleek…I got it summer of 2006 and I haven’t my hard drive crash or anything!

    Aloha, My MAC notebook only lasted 1 year. I started having issues with it within 8 months. It totally died on me right after my 1 year warrenty ran out! The logic board went out ( I guess that happens a lot with MAC according to the guys at the local service department. They said it would be $700 to fix it….
    I just purchased a Sony Vaio and it’s enroute to Maui:-) I’m not done with MAC though….I’m trying to see if they will help me out since the notebook started getting squirrely within a year…who knows.
    Anyway….that my 2 cents. Good Luck:-) A

    You should check out powermax. I just bought my Mac desktop through there and they bought my old Macbook Pro for almost $1000! You might be able to trade your macbook in for a pro. They’d let you buy the pro so you can transfer your files over and then send them you’re macbook and they’ll credit the money back to your credit card. It’s based in Oregon so it would probably be a quick turnover for you. I’d really recommend it. They have either new, refurbished, or used macs for sale. πŸ™‚

    I love Harvey- my Macbook Pro. It’s one of the best investments I’ve made in my adult life thus far!

    Macbook for sure… The glass on the Macbook Pro is super expensive to fix if it breaks and is not covered under the warranty… I have been suck on butternut squash but will be switching to the Kabocha! Either way I love my macbook and I-phone!
