Office Space

Hey guys!  How have you been??  Sorry I’ve been MIA all week.  It’s just been one of those weeks.

Since I last posted, I have worked a bit, played a bit, gone out to dinner a couple times (including a terrible experience at a restaurant with an incredible waterfront view that had something to do with an iceburg salad and a Boca burger. Ew.), and gone shopping with my wonderful boyfriend.  I got some new Toms! 

Oh em gee. I thought I loved my black Toms, but this is the real thing.  They’re amazing.  And bright.  And another little kid in a third world country got a new pair of shoes!  Toms may be cute and super comfortable, but really the One for One thing is really what makes me love them more than anything.

Today was a pretty typical work day.  I started out with a iced vente soy chai.

Then I got to work and realized how crazy the hospital was today.  Come on people, quit getting sick already!  You’re cramping my style!

Isn't the uniform adorable??

Thank goodness for breaks.  For my first meal I bought a bowl of Yukon Gold potato soup from the cafeteria.

I went back to work and sipped on some Tazo Zen green tea with lemon.

My lunch was a salad that had been waiting in the breakroom fridge for me since yesterday afternoon when I decided to buy something instead of eating what I brought.  I guess I was hungry, because I didn’t notice that I didn’t snap a photo until it was almost gone.

Spring mix, spinach, shredded carrot, cucumber, avocado, sunflower seeds and Goddess. 

I answered about 5 billion more phone calls in the office, then munched on some organic split pea soup. 

I still can’t remember the name of this soup brand, but it’s no salt added, and I DEFINTELY have to add my own salt.  I’m pretty sure Keenan put a bunch of sea salt on it before I left, but I tasted it, then ran and grabbed three salt packets and two pepper packets from the cafeteria condiments to add to it.  With my alterations it was perfection.  This may look like green mush, but like so many other foods (green smoothies, anyone?) appearances can be deceiving.

I finished up my work day, and headed out.  As soon as I left the office Keenan texted me to let me know that they let him off of work early!  Tonight’s looking to be pizza and movie night in our household!  Combine that with tomorrow being a day off, plus payday, and I am a pretty happy camper.

Do you have any packaged foods that you doctor up to make extra tasty?

I will definitely salt up my soups if necessary.  Added salt generally shouldn’t be a problem for you unless you have a pre-existing heart condition, which I do not.  Of course, you can also find me liberally adding hot sauce to many dishes, as well. 

Have a wonderful night!

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Good evening!

Depsite yet another night with less than five hours of sleep, I actually had a pretty chill day.  I wasn’t even that tired, although I think it’s finally starting to hit me.

This morning, I purposely slept in and let myself make the hour and a half drive over to Seattle, instead of waking up early enough to catch the ferry.  An extra hour of sleep was definitely worth it, even if my hair did go straight out of the shower into a messy bun, and I’m not wearing any makeup.

Since I was driving, I stopped by Samudra Yoga before heading out of town to grab some breakfast.  I ended up with a 20 oz iced chai with rice milk.

Plus a vegan pumpkin muffin.

I really can’t get enough of their vegan treats.

On my first break I grabbed a coconut curry wrap from the hospital cafeteria.

I had yet another good experience with these wraps from Globespun Gourmet.  It was super yummy.

A bit later I had a salad that I packed for myself last night.

Spring mix, chickpeas, yellow bell pepper, cucumber, avocado, sunflower seeds, and Goddess.  I think the avocado plus my usual amount of dressing was a bit much though.  It was a bit too oily for my taste.  Still tasty though!

My last break I had a bowl of organic lentil soup mixed with some sea salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast.

That’s it so far for food today.  I’m sure I’ll grab a snack when I get home though.

Since I was in such a bad mood yesterday, I decided that today I would do a post about the things that I totally love at the moment.  I figure, if I force myself to think about positive things, then my mood will take a turn for the positive, and it actually did help!  Here’s the list I came up with:

1. My favorite boy, Keenan.  Well, duh.

Keenan and I at a concert back in September

2. My favorite puppy, Arlo.  Especially how excited he gets when I come home from work, and his awesome cuddling abilities.

3.  My favorite role-models, the parents.

4.  My favorite shoes this summer, my Tom’s and my Rainbows.  I live in these (along with my Havaianas).

5. My favorite dressing.

6.  My favorite True Religion jeggings. 

7.  My favorite way to sleep in when the sun is shining in my window is using this eye mask. I got it at Victoria’s Secret a few years ago.

8.  My favorite vegan cookbooks.  I use post-its to mark the recipes that I want to try.

9.  My favorite sunglasses that I wear pretty much everyday, rain or shine. 

10.  My favorite water bottle, the 40 oz Kleen Kanteen.

11.  My favorite workout, running.

12.  My favorite weather, sunshine.

11.  My favorite storage device, Ball jars.

13.  My favorite days, “weekends”! 

Speaking of which, I’m about to go start my “weekend”!  I hope you have a fabulous week!

What are some of your favorite things? 

❤ Lindsay
