Grandma got run over by a lulu

Hi guys!


Check out my sparkly antlers – people kept asking if they were horns, haha. We had the choice between antlers and a Santa hat to wear during the holiday season, so I rolled with the former Smile

Thank you so much for your amazing comments on the Pilot’s guest post. He’s a keeper Winking smile  I was so thankful that he offered to guest post for me- getting back in the swing of things after traveling is always a little cray cray.

Since I got into Orlando pretty late last night, I had someone else make dinner for me:

hot bar

Hot bar Open-mouthed smile

I had a lovely mix of vegan miso slaw and madras vegetables + a small cup of vegan pumpkin soup

The Pilot and I had a Skype date (Skype is my new favorite thing) and then I snuggled up with Bella and called it an early night.

This morning, in the spirit of getting back in the swing of things, I went to the gym for weights and spinning. Israel kicked our booties today- I loved every second.



1 egg, 2 egg white scramble, spinach and arugula, hot sauce and avocado (and a dip into the cashew butter jar)

Work snackage:


Bag of organic carrots and garlic hummus, salad with spinach, arugula and the rest of the avocado, Sun Warrior smoothie with almond milk

I came into work and it’s been a blasty- I missed my work friends Open-mouthed smile

Hope you guys are having a wonderful night and I’ll see ya in the morning <3

Stay tuned for a Sun Warrior promo and some crazy(good) changes starting Monday.



What’s your fave wintery/Christmasy/holiday song? I love ‘Carol of the Bells” and “Frosty the Snowman” because I’m obsessed with snowmen Winking smile And anything that Michael Buble sings…

  24. Carol of the Bells is my favorite to play on piano, but I love All i Want For Christmas is You as a great sing along!

  25. love the title of the post Gina – you are too cute! Happy belated thanksgiving to you sweetie 🙂

  26. I love your antlers, my husband and I were just talking the other day about how there should be more reindeer oriented Christmas decor – everything’s santa/penguins/snowmen! 🙂 My fave holiday song is O Holy Night, I have at least 3 versions on my I Pod 🙂

  27. Usually I get sick of Christmas songs, but for some reason this year I’m totally into all of it! Can’t get enough holiday music of any kind! : )

  28. Can I just say I am SO excited for the sun warrior promo, first off. I’ve been bugging you about if for a few weeks now 🙂

    And second, you always manage to make your meals and snacks look SO scrumptious and perfect– even if your running out the door or just got home from vacation. How, when and where? 🙂 xx

  29. exiting !! seriously I want to thank you for introducing my to sun warrior. Without the promos I would not have bought it and I don’t know how I’ve lived without it. It is the best tasting protein I really have ever had (even beat out jay robb in my opinion) and there is no crap in it. LOVE IT! I stocked up last time but I just might buy so more 🙂

  30. I love “Let it Snow”, especially the Michael Buble version. 😉

  31. My favorite Christmas song – Oh Holy Night…by a mile! However, it has been butchered more times than I can count, so I’m a little picky who sings it. 🙂

  32. Carol of the Bells by the Transiberian Orchestra is my favorite! And All I Want for Christmas is You by MC. Oh and I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas by Bing Crosby. AND! Nat King Cole’s The Christmas Song. 🙂 I love Christmas music!

  33. i’m jewish, BUTTT i LOVE christmas tunes, including mariah’s hit and nsync’s merry christmas happy holiday.

    oh, and guster’s donde estas santa claus. LOVE that one

  34. I live in Minnesota and my bf lives in Washington DC for work for the next year, so we do some video chatting here and there. We don’t do Skype but we both have macbooks with the little built in cameras, so we use that. It’s really nice to see his cute little face when I miss him like crazy!
