Its 10am Somewhere

Hi lovely friends πŸ˜€ How was your day?

Thanks for your kind words about my honker and the bangs video! I’m so glad you liked it πŸ™‚

After dealing with a broken blog all morning, frantically trying to get ready to go, I picked up my madre.

When she got in the car, I said: I need a drink.

She looked at me kinda funny and said, β€œIt’s 10am!”

A green drink, silly πŸ˜‰


After our Whole Foods stop, we went to J. Crew where I proceeded to stress shop my face off. I picked up some great pieces that will last forever πŸ™‚ (right?? haha) A favorite is a denim blazer that you can see peeking out of my suitcase at the end of this post. Lurve. I also got the dress….. πŸ˜‰

For lunch, I made a TJs salmon burger, and enjoyed it atop two pieces of brown rice bread with capers, stone ground mustard and a drizzle of goat’s milk kefir

+ veg

Despite the day’s crazy start, I managed to get lots of schtuff done!

-Car washed

-Eyeballs checked (+ new contact lenses)



-Picked up madre for a meeting (my bro has been driving her car until he gets his new one)



Roomies and I are heading to Phoenix tomorrow to play, since my flight leaves out of Phoenix on Wednesday. So stoked πŸ™‚

I was also surprised by a lovely package from my twinnie friends:

twin cakes2

(the front pack of cheezy crackers wasn’t empty- I munched finished munching them by the time I could get my camera out)

Raw crackers and flatbreads! Looks like my travel snacks are taken care of πŸ™‚ Thank you, friends <3 This savory goodie pack is going to be this week’s OpenSky deal, so if you’d like the gloriousness, make sure to *enter your email here*.

Well I’m off to dance and then back to the casa to finish getting things ready.

See ya in the morning!

  10. Mindy on March 14, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Since I started reading CSD I’ve added green juice to my mornings and I really like it! Your ‘something to read’ about the vegetarians eating meat is just what I was thinking about today, but not because I’m going back to eating meat, but because I’m possibly thinking of taking a step from vegetarian to vegan after reading CSD. For now, I’m going to stop eating eggs and try to reduce dairy. I think it will be hard but I want to see if I can do it and how it affects my body. There was a lot of interesting info in CSD.

  11. Alicia on March 14, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    thanks for posting the video on the hair it!
    i’m new to following the blog & was wondering what is OpenSky…sorry i’m completely clueless. :-/

  15. Allison @ Food For Healing on March 14, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    stress shopping, i kind of feel like doing that right now, and mostly for tanktops, because that is like the only thing i wear. all year round, even in the cold saskatchewan winters.
    Have a safe trip! and i’m totally jealous of your snacks

  16. Ashley @ Feeding Ashley on March 14, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    You got a lot done! I’m jealous, my biggest achievement was a shower. I definitely have to make a green juice tomorrow morning now! It looks so good.

  17. Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food on March 14, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    J. Crew is the best! I always buy way too much from there! And, YAY for finding “the” dress!! πŸ™‚

  18. Ashley @ the fit academic on March 14, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    haha, i love the “it’s 10am!” – hilarious! I’ve totally been stress-shopping lately too! A little retail therapy can be good for the soul!

  19. Carolyn on March 14, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    So excited that you found “The Dress.” Can’t wait to see a picture of it when Pilot arrives! Enjoy your trip.

  21. VeggieGirl on March 14, 2011 at 11:40 pm

  22. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on March 14, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    I know the whole blogger world is in Phoenix right now. When I lived there…sigh….no one was there! It was 9 long months of wishing that anyone would take a trip to Phoenix/Scottsdale..and now…everyone is going. HAVE FUN!!! I know you will πŸ™‚

    Love the writing on your post with the green words + green juice. Super creative and cute!

    And so happy you found The Dress. Pilot, get ready, she’s gonna look even hotter than usual πŸ™‚

  23. Josephine on March 15, 2011 at 1:43 am

    Is that the effortless tote? Do you love it?! Can’t wait to see the dress!

  24. The Teenage Taste on March 15, 2011 at 6:54 am

    Haha! Hope you enjoyed the green drink. Sounds like an interesting mix.

  27. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete on March 15, 2011 at 7:45 am

    I love that you partnered with the Twins in OpenSky – good for you and them (and us!) πŸ™‚

    I’m glad you found a dress — how exciting !!! πŸ™‚

  28. Dana Marie on March 15, 2011 at 8:31 am

    fun times! have a good trip – How do you like the TJ Salmon Burgers? I know TJ is cheaper than most stores, but I’ve found that the taste is sub par- not horrible, and in some things it’s better but I have to go on an individual product basis with them.
    Ps love the wicked canteen!

  29. carolinebee on March 15, 2011 at 8:41 am

    Have fun G$$!! I just bought a denim vest at H&M, holla…haha i cannot wait to rock it with a white tee and some black jeggings πŸ˜€

  30. Nacho Lindsay on March 15, 2011 at 9:00 am

    Have fun in Phoenix! Eat some nachos for me.

  31. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on March 15, 2011 at 9:13 am

    That’s so exciting about The Dress! I hope you’re going to post pictures of it. πŸ˜€

  32. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on March 15, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Ooooh J.Crew. Love, love, love. I can’t shop there because the prices (and my inability to buy up the entire store) just depresses me. πŸ™‚

  33. Anna on March 15, 2011 at 9:53 am

    Thanks for the link to the “Why Vegetarians Are Eating Meat” article- I actually wrote a post quite recently on the very subject. I’m a pescatarian but I ate some lamb a couple weeks ago for a lot of the same reasons laid out in the article. I still consider myself a pescatarian, but often think that supporting small ethical meat producers would have more of an impact on the system than just completely disengaging from it by not eating meat at all.

  34. rebecca lustig on March 15, 2011 at 10:15 am

    stress shopping is dangerous.. although i guess there are worse things to do when stressed, no?

  35. Mary (what's cookin' with mary) on March 15, 2011 at 11:49 am

    YAY (!) for finding the dress. Can’t wait to see it !!

  36. Mo on March 15, 2011 at 11:58 am

    Cooking with Beer – really, it is very versatile. From beer cheese dip to stew. I never see you drink beer – not a fan? I am making Guinness brownies for my crew at work for St. Patty’s day (my most favorite day of the year). Hey, is that a bra in the mesh part of your luggage? Have a good one!

  37. Melissa on March 15, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    Thank you for posting the article about “Why Veg are eating meat” I have been a vegetarian for about 19 years. I can relate to the couple in the article b/c my husband and children are not and it is a hard balance to strike. I often go bakc and forth whether I want to try meat or not… Still standing on that beam.

  38. chelsey @ clean eating chelsey on March 15, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    Have a good trip! I’m rocking the bang braid today!

  39. Christine (The Raw Project) on March 15, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    What a day! The green drink looks wonderful! Have fun in Phoenix!

  40. Christin@purplebirdblog on March 16, 2011 at 8:43 am

    I can’t wait for that pack to become available on Open Sky…. those goodies are miiiiine! πŸ˜‰
