Good day!! Speaking of a good day, today is freaking fabulous! Not only did I have an awesome run this morning around the Rose Bowl with the lululemon Run Club, but I also have big news.
First of all, I bought a Magic Bullet. I get very excited over simple things like this but it is going to make my life so much easier! It’s literally Magic. Oh the possibilities are endless now, I don’t even know where to begin!
Second big news is that….I am a full time employee at lululemon!!!! YAYYY! My “Seasonal” status is up and I am now going to be working there 30 hr/week or so along with The Party Goddess. Yes, I am going to be busy, but what else is new!?
I walked to Americana at brand to purchase my Magic Bullet today and they had a farmer’s market think going on so I decided to check it out. It was really cool. I met a woman who was selling Vegan Cookies she made herself. They were delish! I bought some for my friend who is going on exchange next week and will send it to her by mail. Anyways, it was such a nice warm and sunny afternoon to walk around Americana at Brand. Oh and they had a mini petting zoo with ponies, goats, pigs and other furry things!
So my first smoothie with my Magic Bullet was amazing. What did I throw in the “bullet” to make this purple wonder?
Well I started with:
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
- 1 cup Almond Breeze, unsweetened vanilla almond milk (it’s awesome!)
- 1 scoop protein powder (optional)
I didn’t put ice in but that’s a personal preference. The frozen berries added enough coldness to it for me.
I’m actually so full right now. I had fish and quinoa before, thinking the smoothie would be dessert but I guess with the scoop of protein powder it made it more like a meal. Oh well it was delicious.
Next thing I did today was use my handy dandy peas porridge sac (is that what it’s called?). My dad brought it back from Nova Scotia a few months ago where it is used for making traditional peas porridge bread, onion porridge, molasses porridge bread and a whole bunch of other kinds of porridge I didn’t even know existed.
Now we wait the recommended 2 hours. Not sure what I will pair it with…any ideas?!
2 nights ago I went over to Matt and Ginny’s and we had the best time ever! Guess what we did? Played Super Mario World 2 on the old Super Nintendo. Man oh man, it brought back a lot of memories and it was such a fun time. I can’t believe how stressful that game is. My hands always get really clammy!
