First off, thank you all SO much for your sweet comments on my first vlog. I was a bit hesistant to post it, but as usual, you guys were amazing :)
Since I haven’t blogged in awhile (at least it feels like a long time), I figured I should update you guys on what’s been going on.
I finished my first year of college! It wasn’t easy. Heck, it was far from that. But at least I survived. And now…summer!! I
packed stuffed my car and set out to drive home. It was a pretty uneventful drive. 2 stops and 8 hours later, I was home.
I got a job for Mother’s Day weekend. Yeah, it’s only for 4 days but it’s better than nothing!
You know what is the best? Waking up in the morning and being able to make whatever you want because you have a full kitchen. Man, I’ve missed the kitchen. I decided to on pancakes because, well, you can never go wrong with pancakes. Chocolate coconut topped with chocolate peanut butter to be exact. I know they don’t look all that appetizing but they were, I promise.
You know what’s not the best? Waking up to rain when you planned on going for a run. I had all my clothes laid out and then I looked out the window. Since when did it rain in Orange County?
Have you guys read this Feel Good Story from Spabettie? It’s an amazing story and I may or may not have cried.
I also went to lunch with my best friend. It has been way too long since I’ve seen her. We went to our all time favorite place: The Stand. I got the steamed vegetable bowl as usual because it’s so gosh darn good. Then we went to Active Culture for some frozen yogurt. I got vanilla, cookies ‘n cream, and chocolate with flax seeds, walnuts, and honey nut cheerios on top.
And that’s about it! I was hoping to go to the beach but that whole rain thing kind of put a damper on it.
Ooh but there’s more! I have some exciting news. But it will have to wait… Let’s just say it’s very pink and sweaty. (*hint* look at the new badge on the right hand side). ;)
What’s your favorite vegetable to roast?
Have you ever cooked with lavender before?
