my mind is still out of town.

in random rambles

hi, guys.

sooo.. i’m not quite ready to come back to blogging yet… 

i already had to come back to a MOUND of work (that i have yet to make a dent in.)

and so instead of sitting at a computer at home (did enough of that at work on friday) i have been using the weekend to enjoy a few things before going back to the grind tomorrow morning. 

let’s see…

yesterday i went shopping at lulu and purchased this comfy number…

i had a wonderful time snowboarding at brighton today with krissie (she came all the way from philly!)

we also ate mass amounts of chips & salsa and four big burritos between the two of us at the red iguana yesterday. oh, yum.

in other food news, i have eaten an ENTIRE box of fruity pebbles in less than three days. and, yes, that is bop. mandy got it for me.

and tonight i’ve been downing this combo like it’s my job (and i wish it was!) although i realize it’s missing cholula–i doused that on after the photo.

oh!  i learned something new–there’s a national helium shortage! sad. #savetheballoons.

and now i am working on uploading photos from the dominican republic.

I’m sure Penny and Randy are happy to have you home! I always hate leaving Bentley when I go out of town. Although I think he likes all the extra attention he gets from the many friends who fight over who gets to watch him.

Glad you made it home. We were in SLC this weekend for Ballet West summer program auditions, and imagine the wintery weather was a pretty big change for you. Fun to see all the places you’ve blogged about, and LOVED shopping at Trader Joe’s. My daughter loves SLC and can’t wait to go back. We were going to stop at Blue Lemon for lunch, but she was too nervous to eat. :)

I always say that I need a vacation after my vacations. It takes a while to get back into the real life mindset! That sourdough avocado toast looks incredible… Yum :).

Getting back to reality after vacation is seriously the worst. And then to have to LOOK at your vacation pictures….too much :) Glad you had a fun weekend. That lulu top is super cute. Makes me want to go shopping

I bet that was a fun trip! I’ve never been there before but it would be awesome! I learned about the helium shortage last year buying balloons for a birthday party. Isn’t that crazy?! I never would have thought that! Have a great week!

The bathing suit is so cute!
And a helium shortage? That’s kinda random, isn’t it?

Presley @ Run Pretty February 11, 2013 at 5:39 am

Can’t wait for the recap! I need a vacation so badly that just looking at your pictures will help, haha.

ahhhhh Im so ready for a vaycay too :-)
and that lulu number!

Kristen February 11, 2013 at 6:19 am

That beach looks awesome. I need to get to a beach soon.

With the helium – with the shortage (helium is a non-renewable resource), there’s a bit of a movement to encourage people not to use helium for balloons at all. Helium is used in medical testing so there’s a worry that it won’t be available for that.

And I love that shirt – I’ve been eyeing it for a few weeks!

Is it wrong I’ve been to Molly Green’s but have yet to ski/snowboard since I moved to Utah?! Haha. We went sledding up the canyon and to Brighton for drinks and food after a few weeks ago. So fun!
I really love that top from lulu, I might have to go get myself one :)

LOVE that Lululemon top! I think I need it now…

Glad you two had fun snowboarding! As a Floridian, I’m kinda jealous of the snow.

Coming back to work after a great vacation is the worst!! I love that bathing suit you’re wearing! Looks like one of my 5 year old self’s coloring creations – so cute!

love the lulu shirt!

And I can’t wait for the vacation recap because I am going to the Dominican on Wednesday!!!! Hope you’re trip was fabulous!

Ohmygosh, BOP! I just had a flashback to 6th grade when my mom refused to let me buy an issue while standing in line a 7-11. It’s hilarious that the magazine still exists.

Also, love that stripy shirt. And love you.

So what does is say that my desk looks very similar and I haven’t been out of the office for a week? Hmmmmm….

Love the avocado and egg combo too. Amazing how such simple foods can make me so very, very happy :)

1) barf on coming back to a giant stack of papers.
2) cute ‘kini
3) hrm, was curious why our local florist was always out of helium. good to know!

glad you’re back!

I always feel like I need a vacation when I get back from vacay, just to mentally prepare myself to get back into the swing. Glad you are home safe and can’t wait to hear all about your trip!

Im glad you made it back ok (and I hope you can make a dent in all the work.. eek!) happy monday!

1) I eat avocado toast at least three times a week. So good and easy.
2) One of my magazines deals with the party industry and the helium shortage has been a HUGE issue for more than a year, with no end in sight. The good thing is that you can still do a lot with air-filled decor!
3) That second point was lame, but I had to share. Back to avocado love now…

So, this is random, but I am a scientist who uses helium for some of my instruments- the helium shortage is real and BAD! We have real trouble sourcing helium now and it’s likely to get more expensive. It’s a finite resource, so when it’s gone, it’s gone. Helium is used in all kinds of important things, like MRI machines, so I’m actually surprised people are still allowed to use it for things like party balloons. Pretty short sighted if you ask me…!

a) I don’t blame you at all. I took a computer break yesterday all day!
b) They still make BOP?!
c) LOVE your bikini.
d) did you set a new font on here? I likey.

This was seriously a blast of a long weekend! Pretty sure I offset all the calories burned boarding with all the yummy food out here. ;) Can’t wait to visit again and I’m totally wearing that lulu top in the color I got. Thanks for popping my lulu cherry, lolz. Til next time, chica!

Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries February 11, 2013 at 12:41 pm

It always takes me a little while for me to settle back into “real life mode” after a vacation. Love the Lululemon top you got – it looks super comfy and cute. You can’t beat smashed avocado on toast. I like to add a little garlic salt and pepper to it too!

Annette@FitnessPerks February 11, 2013 at 1:19 pm

Awwww LOVE the photos!

I hate coming back from vacay too …..Shopping usually does the trick for me though too ;)

Lisa February 11, 2013 at 1:32 pm

Glad you’re home safe and sound. It always takes a while for me to feel back to normal after a wonderful vacay.
I adore that bikini, you look fabulous!
Haha, loving the bop magazine, I was too obsessed with them when I was a teen.
Can’t wait to hear more about the trip!
