Hey guys! How’s your day been?

I have been a CLEANING MACHINE– lurve a sparkly casa 🙂


house (3)

The puppers watched idly as I swiffered and dusted.


(Haha see Viesa’s fried chicken basket toy?? She loves that thing)

I also busted out the chef’s knives to get the rest of the prep work done for tonight,


which makes me reminiscent of these days…


minus all of the times I cut myself chopping things at 105degrees 😉

Here’s a pic of the raw calamari before breading it and putting it into the dehydrator to crispify.


It’s mushrooms!!! (MUSHROOM! MUSHROOM!)

Not raw fish… I don’t think I could roll like that. Or even find a non-sushi fish in Valdosta that I would be comfortable eating raw 😉

Some random eats:

Juice action:


Almond butter + jelly (1/2 a piece came off when I was chiseling off a piece of frozen millet. It was destiny)


Salad beast:


This morning’s yoga practice started this day off on such a *good* note- I’ve felt extra mellow all day. Why haven’t I had yoga in my life recently?? No idea, but it’s back now 🙂

Time to shower my stinky face and get dressed.

See ya with a girls night re-cap 😀



Something to do: Last chance to hit up the Garlic Gold Sale! You get 8 shakers for $21 (4 different flavors) – it ends tonight. Thank you so much to those of you who have gotten in on the garlicky action <3

Something else to do: Please leave a comment with your blog address if you’d like. (edited to say: omit the “www” if ya can, it will keep your comment from going into the spam folder. For example, instead of I deleted my blogroll -it was cluttering the side of my blog and I want to increase it- and will be creating a new blogroll on its own page. I won’t be able to add all of the URLs that you guys post (there are so many blogs out there!) but I would love reminders of my favorites and can’t wait to check out some new ones.

    My blog is, though in the grand tradition of tumblr, it’s about 80% junk I found on the internet and 20% Emma.

    I’m a lurker, I’ll admit – I read this blog pretty often, but never comment. Today’s a good day to start, riiight?

    My blog is mostly weightloss-related, and generally food-y. It’s Don’t be thrown off by the name, it’s supposed to invoke this feeling that I shouldn’t limit the joy in my life just because I am overweight and trying to lose a few, and that I should be proud of my body at every stage but at the same time eager to be healthier. I gotta say Gina, your blog def. helps with all that 🙂 Here’s hoping you link me uppp!!
