Hello, hello! Lots of exciting things to discuss. Get ready.
This morning I felt like I had a food hangover when I woke up. This is why I don’t eat too many burgers….I felt very “blehhhhhh” this morning and STARVING, which is the tell tale sign my food wasn’t really balanced last night. However, I remedied that with a big glass of water and a big bowl of overnight oats 🙂
And then (after oatmeal digested!) did an hour of a Dave Farmar podcast in my pjs. Felt great to get twisting and moving!
Had an early lunch before heading in to work. I roasted a butternut squash until it almost caramelized and then ate half of it in chunks with a Trader Joe’s chicken burger smothered in hummus (and hot sauce..duh!) and an apple. It was really satisfying!
Work was good…I can’t complain. The weather was freaking phenomenallllllll today (75 degrees and sunny) and I got to be outside all afternoon pouring Cabernet Franc at our event. I even got tan lines…felt right at home there. 😉 I did snack on a Pure bar while I was pouring but it missed the camera’s eye.
Had a glass of wine with my coworkers while we cleaned up and then got home around 6:30 and heated up a bowl of my potato leek soup with a little sheeps milk cheese melted in….with another apple! Looove honeycrisp.
And now, here comes the exciting stuff!
1. I found the BEST frozen yogurt place EVER in Healdsburg!!!!!
Okay, so get this: right when you walk into Yogurt Time you grab your own cup and you PORTION YOUR OWN FROZEN YOGURT AND ADD YOUR OWN TOPPINGS!!!!!!! Can you FEEL the excitement through the computer screen??!?!! I wish I could like grab your shoulders and tell you how cool this place is. They charge by weight so you can add as much or as little frozen yogurt to your cup, mix whatever you want, and go crazy with toppings! It’s like a big frozen yogurt bar. I think the girl that worked there thought I was a crazy person because I was literally jumping up and down with excitement. Plus, it’s SUPER cheap! I filled my cup with a mix of cookies n cream and reeses froyo and then on top added oreo and butterfinger pieces. A dream come true.
2. Mint.com is addicting (mom & dad are you reading this??!)
So, I’ve never really been good with money….or math…or numbers in general. My brain doesn’t work in dollar signs…I’m a writer, not an accountant! However, living on my own has made me very VERY aware of every single penny leaving my purse and Mint.com offers a free way to track your finances. It links to your bank account and you can add all your loan/credit card/car payments…everything…right in and it will always let you know how much you have and what your budget is looking like. I’m sort of obsessed.
3. I BOUGHT A CANON REBEL!!!!!!
Oooohhhh my!!!!!!! I’ve wanted a dslr for a loooong time now and losing my camera charger was the final push I needed. Either I was going to have to go spend $50 on a new charger and then keep using my duck taped together camera that is half broken, or just make the plunge into dslr-land…… I chose the latter. Good thing I now use Mint.com to help me with my budget! 😉 I ordered my camera on Amazon.com with overnight shipping because, well, my point and shoot is basically DEAD and I don’t want to keep you guys in the dark without any pictures for the next week! I also ordered the cutest camera bag. So excited. Am going to stick with, and learn from, the general lens that the camera comes with and then probably upgrade next month to the 50 mm f/1.8. SO EXCITED!!!!!
Off to clean the house then read in bed!
