Happy Sunday. Mine has been happy indeed. I got my hair did. [For you locals, I went to the new guy, Joel, at Aveda Grassroots (by The Fresh Market).] I thought he did a great job! He put in more lowlights and a few new highlights and took about an inch off. Dude was a perfectionist, which is exactly what you want in a stylist.
What? No! I hadn’t been drinking wine when this picture was taken. My teeth just naturally have a purple tint.
I started out my morning today with an almond milk latte from Camino Bakery before going to a moderate flow yoga class. I had been at Camino earlier in the week for book club. We were discussing The Fault in our Stars. Definitely recommend!
I love having our book club at Camino. Such a cozy place.
You know what else I love? Wine. I also love how I tried to curl my hair with a flat iron last week. Can you see how well it worked out for me?
I digress. Back to book club. At Camino, I got their gluten-free almond horn with their red wine special of the day, a malbec. Oh oops. Somehow I came back to wine. Sorry about that.
Babies are invited to book club too. Especially when it’s Baby Bo. And that is my famous author friend Meg. 🙂
Bo joined the drinking festivities.
Anyway, my weekend has been great. I did a 12 mile treadmill run yesterday. I averaged around an 8:00 minute/mile pace. The first two miles I warmed up around 8:30, then dropped it to 8:00 until about mile 10 and then ran the last two miles around 7:15-7:30. I was watching episodes of “Homeland” for the bulk of the run but when I ran out of downloaded episodes, I switched to music and felt the urge to run faster. Music really helps my speed.
Ok, let’s get to The Weekender. Then I have to edit a bunch of pictures because I have some yummy recipes coming up for you this week.
- Stop being late by first figuring out what kind of Late you are. [Ugh, I’m always late. Even all the tricks they recommend don’t work. But I’m still trying!]
- I need to teach Maizey to do this.
- Gluten-free, vegan sugared chai latte muffins. Oh, if you insist.
- Someone please go buy me some dates so I can make these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Raw Bars.

And today, my quads hurt. bad. someone come rub BenGay on them. Actually, don’t. That’d be weird. But you could pay for a massage for me. Yes, do that instead.
Are you watching the Superbowl? I didn’t even know who was playing it in until yesterday.
Confess: Do you drink “bad” coffee?
Tell me: Can ANYONE curl their hair with a flat iron??
