Hello all—apparently alot of peeps didn’t know that Dove chocolate products you can buy online existed. Hakuna Matata–I didn’t know either but they have a Mary Kay kind of thing going on where you can be a sales consultant and host parties. Check out the site here. I would love to host a chocolate party! I would poll my friends to see which ones were on the same cycle and plan a party a day before when hormones are raging!
I wonder if they make dresses like this?
Today is the last day of leisure before going back to work. I like this not working thing but could see how it could get boring (unless I have unlimited cash flow of course) and am kinda looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. Once I start complaining about work, please remind me I said that. I am taking a new route to work now and that means a completely new bus line. I have the option of three of them so I am going to try one tomorrow and then a different one each day. They aren’t express lines, which I am used to riding, and are the normal bus lines which means more opportunities for good people watching! I will keep on my sunglasses, listen to my ipod and not make eye contact in hopes that they won’t bother me and my commute will only be 15 minutes. Bring it.
For breakfast, I had an egg white sandwich with turkey and white american cheese folded in the egg topped with ketchup and tomato and a side of kiwi and banana
I did some more cleaning at my old apartment this morning. Note to self–next time I move, be sure to vacuum and clean before you turn off the electric. Cleaning a shower in a window-less bathroom is not fun. I was a hot mess afterwards so fro-yo was an appropriate choice. When I get fro-yo I go for the fruity flavors but today I did a 180 and mixed it up—-alot.
If you read my blog often, you really won’t see nut butters . I’m just not a huge fan, it takes me over half a year to polish off one jar and I hate the way it sticks to your mouth. Alot of people go nuts (pun intended) for the stuff but I just can’t get into it. However if you add chocolate to the mix, I don’t mind it so much.
So I present:
Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fro Yo topped with coconut shavings, crushed graham crackers and chocolate chips drizzled in caramel.
Lunch was a veggie hummus wrap with baby spinach, artichokes, mushrooms, tomatoes and Trader Joe’s Spicy Hummus

I had a pretty sweet sweat session later. I was getting a bit annoyed though b/c I was doing a bunch of jumping around in between sets but my heart rate monitor was acting funky and not reflecting my correct heart rate (I can assure you, it’s not 89 when doing 40+ jumping jacks)

If yesterday was all about NJ, today was all about CA and catching up with my bff
I’ve been seeing a lot of previews for Charlie St. Cloud which Zac Efron. I think it looks stupid but I can finally appreciate why people think he is cute. He is too pretty for my taste but he looks like a young Rob Lowe, I can be down for that
One drawback of moving: Not knowing what my preparation time is anymore. At my old place, I knew how long I needed to get ready and drive to this area if I wanted to go out and I showered, deep conditioned my hair, got ready at a leisurely pace and was still 45 minutes ahead of time. I even tried on a few different outfits to make sure I was wearing something cute…..still ahead of time. What shall I do with this extra time? Clean? Take Lincoln out? Clean My Kitchen? Nope. I choose beer and snack foods

I met up with my womens networking group at Press Wine and Food, they have $5 glasses of wine on Tuesday nights and I’ve heard they have great food including sushi so I was super excited!
Drink wise-I had a glass of the Bridlewood Chardonnay and two glasses of Santa Ema Barrel Select Carmenere. I am not a huge red fan but the Carmenere was amazing. I had the Trio of Wasabi Roll-“Crabmeat, shrimp, & cucumber rolled with wasabi peas & topped with wasabi roe & wasabi aioli” and Fuji Kabayaki Roll- “Crab, avocado, & Fuji apple topped with warm BBQ eel, tempura flakes, & a drizzle of eel sauce” Both of these were absolutely fabulous. The Wasabii Roll had true Wasabi flavor but it didn’t overpower the crab or shrimp and the Fuji Kabayaki Roll was great. I never would have thought pairing apple with crab or avocado but it was a smooth, rich combination.
Now, I’m watching Lincoln attacking his baby and getting ready for bed—hope everyone had a terrific Tuesday!
