twigs and tans

July 14, 2009

i tried out a new cereal this morning. this is my first time trying a “twig-y” cereal, and i was surprised to find it was pretty good. though the addition of dark chocolate to the bowl might have influenced my opinion 😀



as you know, i spent another day by the pool. i packed lunch to eat there since i didn’t want to miss a second of precious sun.

i had a peanut butter sandwich on muesli bread.


and some sliced plum on the side.


can you see all the people in the pool? that pool is ice cold, so it shows how hot it got out there!

unfortunately, these dark clouds eventually moved in 😦


and it was time for me to go back home…

i never got a chance to flip while i was out there so i have a ridiculous tan line! one side of my body is darker than the other and it looks really funny. i have to remember to lie in the opposite direction tomorrow. ahh….what a difficult life i live! 😉

after all that hard work, a snack was very necessary. i ate a carrot and salsa. i’d be lying if i said i didn’t miss tortilla chips, but this combo ain’t half bad.


dinner was nice n’ summery. i had sweet potato fries, corn on the cob and a salad with some more trader joe’s chunky salsa which i’m pretty in love with. this was also the sweetest and tastiest corn i’ve had all season.


for dessert, i had some more dark chocolate and a splash of wine. please assume that i will continue to do this until the bar and bottle are finished 🙂

well i gotta get to bed now. i want to wake up extra early so i can finish up my freelance projectt and get my ass to the pool so i can even out this tan! g’nite!

    I’ve been trying to sub raw veggies instead of tortilla chips lately, too, and it’s totally not the same 😦

    I love those high fiber twigs – they have such a great crunch for the a.m!

    I’m a fan of that TJ’s cereal – I especially like the add-ins!

    We just had amazingly sweet fresh corn the other night as well. So good this time of year.

    Mmm…dark chocolate and twigs. Yummy! I was really surprised at how much I liked twigs when I tried them a few years ago.

    Chocolate in cereal sounds like my kind of thing 😉 Yummy!

    Hehe, I love all the Hello Kitty stuff you always have!
