Water Works


Well, yoga was out this morning…as was really anything else because at the last minute I recalled that there was an order in to fix something with my water and, therefore, the water would be turned off from 8 am-2pm today. This meant both my mom and I had to shower pre-8:00 hour because that would be the only chance today for cleanliness. Usually I’d just swipe my hair up in a ponytail or braids but we have dinner reservations tonight so I felt like I should attempt to clean myself up a bit. Hmm

Breakfast was oatmeal:

1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water, 1 banana, 1 T almond butter
About to head down to the city now for a lunch at TARTINE (!!!) and then picking my dad up from the airport! Is Christmas Eve really tomorrow?!

    Mmm, I love tartines. When I visited Paris, a ham and brie tartine with a side salad and a glass of wine was my favorite lunch! Enjoy the time with your folks 🙂

    Yes, tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!!

    I had to laugh out loud when I saw your almond butter! Everyone always askd how you get it so runny! This time it is in no way runny! Does kind of look like chocolate!

    Have an amazing time with your mom in the city…and with your dad when he gets there!

    I hate it when my building shuts off the water for repair! It always seems to happen at the most inconvenient times! Once I even had to shower at the gym for a whole week until my hot water finally kicked back on, it was aweful!

    Showers Shmowers!! 😉 Kidding – with the hot yoga you do, you’d probably regret not having water.
    That’s so exciting both your parents are going to be there for Christmas! How wonderful.

    Jenna, You crack me UP. I lived in The City for years before I ventured beyond my prissy Pacific Heights-Nob Hill-Marina-Cow Hollow-North Beach-Financial District-Embarcadero borders. I was kind of a dipstick! You’ve already been to the Tenderloin/Mission etc. Yo! Wassup! Next you’ll be wearing Jay-Z. Bwahaha.
