Vacation State Of Mind

Happy Humpday!

Mannnnn if you are wondering why my breakfast post is late its because I slept late! That’s right…..Miss Early Bird didn’t rise until 9:15 this morning!!!!!!! How crazy is THAT?! I have been sleeping with this sleep mask on that blocks out all light and I think that might be the culprit. I’m glad though because I wanted to sleep as late as possible today since orientation is going to go until 11:30 tonight and then tomorrow I have my surgery at 8 am.

When I finally greeted the world, I made eggies for breakfast. 2 scrambled eggs with a walnut roll spread with preserves and an orange


Isn’t my plate cute?? I got it for $1.99 at this adorable boutique called Target yesterday. Love that place.



It looks like I should be on vacation but sadly I am not. Oh well. Vacation state of mind I guess. 🙂

Plan for the day is to go to a yoga class from 12-1:30, eat lunch, shower and then orientation again at 4:00. Not terribly exciting but at least I’m getting paid to be there!

I’ll be back after lunch—have a lovely day!

    Hey Jenna! Just wanted to let you know that I bought all three of Diana Gabaldon’s Lord John books after Christmas. The first started off a little slow but overall was good. I’m halfway through the second and really enjoying it. Also, there is an excerpt in each from the next book in the Outlander series which totally makes it worth it.

    Just out of curiosity — how did you get into yoga in the first place? I went to a free class at college (as part of a post-Sept. 11 student outreach program) and can’t get enough since then.

    have a great day!

      Hmm….well when I was in high school back in 2000, I started doing a yoga dvd a couple times a week but it was nothing serious and when I went away to college I didn’t start back up at all. Then, in 2004 I was have a hard time and suffered from depression so badly that I came home from school and spent a semester living at home and working full time. It was then when I started going to a yoga studio to find some sort of release from the anxiety and depression that I was feeling and I became hooked. After starting to practice regularly, my depression became non-existent and I was feeling better than I ever had in my life. I transferred colleges to College of Charleston and got really involved in my local yoga studio there and started attending classes 5-6 times a week. And that’s how its been since then! 🙂

    I just got back from yoga, it was amazing! do you know why yoga classes are so long?

      It’s just tradition that yoga classes usually are 90 minutes in length. I guess it takes that much time for the body to truly generate warmth and get into some of the postures.

    Hi Jenna,
    Let me just say that I love your blog! I had a few questions about yoga: I have been dying to start practicing yoga lately and am not sure which yoga I should get into..or how to go about it. The only yoga I have done is yoga from a “Yoga for Beginners” DVD I bought last summer. I feel I have mastered this DVD and am ready for something different. Id like to find a yoga that helps with balance and toning..any suggestions? should I join a class right off the bat, or practice poses and then join? Thanks for the input! Keep up the good work!

    Hey Jenna, I just wanted to say that after your post about getting a Vitamix, I asked for one for Christmas from my boyfriend (he got me a TV that we returned)! I am so excited to use it and get ideas from you.

    Also, I love that you are getting back into yoga regularly because I too have let my practice lapse. I hope to start doing it regularly again and seeing you do it makes me want to do it even more!

    Great plate…I almost bought it myself. But I believe the boutique is called Tar-jay.

    Can’t wait to see more of those lovely rolls!

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for sharing a little regarding suffering from depression and anxiety and how yoga was able to help. I am recovering from an eating disorder and would really love to completely turn to yoga to help me heal, but I can’t get away from the idea that I need to do cardio (I am out of college and working so it would be hard to fit both in regularly). Would you mind sharing, maybe in a post, a little more detail about what you went through and how you continue to cope?

    I have some Christmas presents to return to target and part of what I want to buy is some new plates and bowls. I hope I find stuff just as cute as your new plate. It’s so summery I love it. I know I can’t wait until it’s warm again here. So jealous of your florida heat!

    Hi Jenna-
    Just wanted to say thanks again for all of the yoga inspiration (looks like I am not the only one!) Lately I have been doing yoga in my living room, but your blog has inspired me to try a class – I haven’t been to one since college. For any of your Boston readers, there is $5 community class at BackBay yoga that I am trying tonight! Thanks again Jenna!
