a week of green and orange

its been such a busy week: hence the no blogging status!

so busy that i have not had time to do the usual lunch prepping everyday.

when this happens i turn to a few of my go to whole foods options: they happened to be a lot of orange and a lot of green-including the repetition of mango almost everyday!

anyone know how good carrots and almond butter is?

i am finally aware….it is a¬†definite¬†goodie!


whole foods goodies:


raw kale salad-with pine nuts and dried cranberries

brussel sprout and golden beet salad- with walnuts and thyme

kale and beet salad- with feta and dried cranberries

egg and cheese breakfast wrap- it was a first but really did the job!

how cute is this:

such a guy:





sasha and peanut butter jelly time.

ryan is still away.

the good news is, i have been getting a lot of my sasha time in.

thursday she came over after work and alice was more than ecstatic to see her..

this was her within a minute of sash sitting down:

..the girl¬†doesn’t¬†waist any time.

sasha and i had a very nice date out to sushi!

i have been craving sushi and italian food all week!

pretty much simultaneously. this helped for a moment..the craving comes right back though..

when we got home i made us desert:

in sasha’s

  • almond butter
  • bran cereal-total bran/weetibix

it had been long. it was absolutely fantastic.

i sent rye a good morning kiss.

have i showed you these lemons? lululemons ūüôā (please pardon the messy bathroom!)

getting to the gym was really hard and once i finished cardio and only one weight machine i was done!

i got home and couldnt even get myself to shower before crashing on the couch.

dave wasted no time in taking that opportunity for cuddle time, alice was hard at work on a bone:

i took all of these photos for rye..even one of my bachelorette house keeping skills….

and one of my sleepy face with bags under my eyes..:(

sasha came over again ūüôā

we watched 127 hours..i thought it was really good!….not to mention upsetting…. the movie was really well done and captivating especially¬†considering¬†it took place almost in one location the entire movie.

for dinner i made broiled cheese bread and veggies:

(have i mentioned these are inspired by “” blog’s, i really love her blog and these are great! just put on your¬†desirables¬†and stick them under the broiler for about 6 min. give or take….but watch them, they will burn before you know it! trust….i know from¬†experience.)

  • la brea bakery multi grain
  • spinach
  • greens
  • alfalfa¬†sprouts
  • raw mushrooms
  • veganese
  • dijon mustard
  • 1 toast con swiss cheese
  • 1 toast con colby jack cheese
  • ūüėČ

dessert we had mini chocolate cheesecakes from whole foods, i put it on a plate over a little¬†dollop¬†of whipped cream with a¬†piece¬†of xo dark chocolate with cherries….the cheesecake wasn’t as great as i thought.. ūüė¶ )

alice and dave were adorable! and being snuggle bunnies:

i love that trio.

busy, work, love, school, workout food & busy

oh i have missed you!

it has been a busy, busy week..ive fallen so far behind..

there were days, and a series of events that seemed very similar at times..

there was coffee of course:

to save on money, i tried to recreate the coffee bean iced coffee i love so much..i only managed to succeed once.

and lunch at work:

many of which happened to be tasty salads:

some salads were special with leftover chinese from valentines day and home made dipping sauce.

others were special with left over kabocha squash.

there was more kabocha snacking on the drive to school:

i switched it up from time to time:

delicious veggie sandwich from a deli at the corner. .. why is mayonnaise and toasted bread so amazing..?

i tried a new yogurt after i was given a free sample at work. It was amazing! love it. i added chia:

i had peanut butter-almond butter & jam oatmeal of course:

i started school:

i got some girl time with alice in the healing outdoors:

my wonderful husband made me many dinners this week, due to school and study time.

many consisted of beautiful salads:

one with a delightful chipotle mahi burger with cheese.

and kombucha’s to aid in homework time:

alice was her usual cute self, and didnt fail to keep me company and give me deep, thoughful glares from time to time.

it was an eventful and good week.

dog park and a snack

after breakfast my sasha came over for a visit and brought sweet ceci with her.

ceci is getting older ūüė¶

she and alice got along. alice was glad to have a wise and knowledgeable girl around.

sash helped me finish the runaways.

we did what we do best..

computer and cozy time with the dogs.

we stopped for coffee:

i got a decaf sash got some tea….seems that alice was eyeing mine:

we lounged..lazy girls on computers watching recorded ‘intervention’ on a&e. it was a grand time.

the day was moving along..

i was off, time for girl cousin and ruby at yogurtland.

my cousin made a special visit with her 5 month old baby from oakland. those girls are simply amazing.

rye and i had subway that i picked up on the way home and we watched snl; best of christopher walken and a little bit of the origional office. that was that..time for another week.


i set my alarm for 4:10 am and was off to the gym to get a quick workout before work today because i had an important date with my cousin joey and baby ruby asap.

i was a little soar so i just did light cardio for 40 min.

i had some juice for breakfast:

lunch lineup:

i started bringing my own silverware to work to save on plastic waste:

i made the beets over the weekend and added fresh lemon juice from a friends lemon tree


after work i headed home to take alice on a quick walk

ps shes pretty cute

and then i was venice bound!


i was there :

we headed over to the chaya in venice for a night on the town with the sister cousins and my uncle jack.  

joey and i shared sushi and salad:


after dinner it was janet joey ruby time.

joe and i had frozen yogurt of course and watched some dexter and relaxed.

i was a plum afterward

i rushed home and got ready for my 3rd lucky day with ruby and joey.

we got a lululemon treat from uncle jack!!

we headed over to venice and had dinner at uncle jack’s. rye¬†came too!

time for goodbyes. i miss those girls already!

another late night, i got home and it was time for zz’s.

as well as follow your heart honey mustard dressing with a bit of lemon juice,

cheese, pear, green wrap!: (ps i have never been into savory sweet..until now)

i was pretty hungry..

later i had a pick me up..or what i had hoped to be a pick me up, but this kombucha was totally flat and just¬†didn’t¬†do it for me….. it was really quite sad.

before i ventured home and off to the gym i had a quick snack delight..

  • honey almond butter
  • organic peanut butter
  • red delicious apple

it really hit the spot.

i have to once again advertise this¬†almond¬†butter because it really is that good….go and get some ūüôā
