Call Me Elf

Hey guys 🙂 Happy Friday and Merry Christmas Eve to those of you celebrating today!

I’m so glad you enjoyed the Pilot’s guest post- he’s pretty much amazing <3

Since I last saw you, I managed to finish ALL of our holiday shopping  (!!!)

and turned this:


into THIS:


Ka pow! <— Elf ninja kick

Some recent eats:





Sun Warrior GF steel-cut oats brought to work:


I’ve been adding a pack of Via to my oats lately to give it a lovely coffee flavor and energy boost. Try it, you’ll like it 🙂

At work today we had a plethora of healthy treats:


Fruit, nuts and almond butter:


Pita chips with Greek yogurt, teas and sparkling juices


and we played holiday movies on my laptop:


Rocking the Christmas tree headband:


(I definitely need to bite the bullet and buy a new lens. After cramming the broken one together with my eyes closed and a prayer, I realized it’s still not really fixed…)

I’m off to dinner at my daddoo’s house!

Whatever you do tonight, whether you’re celebrating or chillin’, please be safe and enjoy spending time with people you love.

See ya in the morning!

    I took this hazy picture of you! I thought that maybe it was you, but I wasn’t sure. I’ve been reading your blog from the beginning but I’m a month behind because of a crazy work schedule and the holidays, so I hadn’t realized you moved back to T-Town. I didn’t want to be a weirdo for asking, but now I feel like a weirdo for not saying hi! And man, it’s weird seeing a face and knowing a lot about that person but realizing they know nothing about you. Made me feel creepy… that’s gotta be normal… I mean, right..??
    After you left I definitely asked your coworker: “This is a weird questions: is her name Gina?” Ha. Welcome back to the desert! I got caught up on what’s going on and sounds like you made the move for all the right reasons. Glad to see you happy!

      awww so awesome!!! not weird at all 🙂
      definitely come and visit us again!

    It looks like you bought out the Lululemon store there. 😉 I’m sure whoever is getting those presents will love them!

    Merry Christmas!

    I LOVE adding VIA to things different. The Iced VIA is great in smoothies too. 🙂
