Dressed-Up Shopping

27 Aug

Last night for dinner, I had a Chinese-inspired dish with eggplant and quinoa. I didn’t get a chance to ask my mom for the recipe but it was so good that she’ll probably make it again soon and I’ll be sure to steal it! The dish didn’t look too pretty but it was amazing!

After dinner, I watched some Charmed with the family which was a fun way to unwind after my last day of work! Finally, I get to enjoy the summer for one week before my school starts up again.

Before I went to bed, I did a bunch of planks, crunches, and other ab exercises that my chiropractor recommended to me. They were hard! I was definitely sweating towards the end of the work out but part of that was because of the fact that the house was 94 (!!!) degrees. Talk about a hot day! It’s time like this that I miss having A.C.

Today, I woke up and got dressed for success. Since I haven’t put a picture of myself up yet, here it is! This is me, everyone. Ignore the fact that I look about 12, it’s all those darn braces!

I had a peach and orange at about 7:30 when a text woke me up. Later, at 10 or so, I had the rest of Silverhill Squirrely bread (this stuff is my favorite!) we had in the bag with peanut butter and my mom’s home made jam. OH MY GOODNESS. I love that jam so much! Not too sweet, plenty of strawberry chunks and it just tastes homemade, you know what I mean?

While I ate, I started making a list of the Day Zero Project (check it out, it’s really cool!) . Basically, you chose 101 goals that you want to complete in the next 1001 days. I only have 50 or so tasks right now but I’m excited. It’ll help me make sure I’m actually doing something with my life and not just letting these amazing years pass me by.

After breakfast, I went on a bike ride to the local Sprout’s which is basically a mixture of Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. I love shopping there, it’s nearby, clean, and well-stocked with health foods. Where else can I go get chia seeds?

Because I’m a total dork and I haven’t been able to dress up for awhile, I put on a dress just for grocery shopping. Who’s going to stop me?

After I bought some Hemptation Bread, chia seeds, and royal jelly (for my mom), I decided to stop by the local pet store and drop off my application. I decided that I wanted to start volunteering in the adoption area seeing as my parents won’t let me have a pet. This is the next best thing. I got some really great news while I was there but I’ll save that for my next post because this one is getting pretty long.

Hope you all had a fantastic day!
