disappearing act

Hi friends! 

How’s the day treating you? It’s still gloomy and snoozy over here, and I kind of love it even though I’m on coffee cup #3 (WOOPS) and trying to be productive. I just want to HGTV and chill.

Speaking of HGTV and chill, we had an awesome dinner at Seasons 52 last night, and a little bit of wine… It’s probably in our favor that all of the stores at the UTC mall were closed, because we were surrounded by home & decor stores like Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn kids, and Williams Sonoma.

Crispy shrimp, rice, and veggies with soy ginger sauce

Hi friends! How’s the morning going??  Yesterday I had to get some blood work done, so I grabbed the usual celebratory green juice afterwards.  It’s no longer a belly; it’s a legit shelf. 😉 Lunch was a TBLAT: tempeh bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato (+ mayo) on a brown rice tortilla.
