Is when you have no where to be! When it is gorgeous out, when you’re with your best friend and when you are on a horse.
Gaston says “hi” too!
Gaston loves apples.
I went riding with my friend yesterday morning, and yes, we got lost on the trails. It was excellent 😉
Me and Gaston!
Actually, that’s kind of the theme of the last twenty four hours of my life.. I had such a good weekend! After my sister left Saturday morning, I was here that night, but went home Sunday afternoon, to attend yet another party–this time, my little sister’s, her two best friends from middle school and their parents. We’ve all basically grown up together.
The Drive Downtown, SO many people out boating!
I love our house for outdoor entertaining in the summer! Lawn chairs, an outdoor patio, a grill, the beach and water and a fire pit… beach bonfires are the best!!
My mom made an amazing eggplant and polenta parmesan dish that I definitely enjoyed made a huge dent in and my sister made a phenomenal strawberry rhubarb pie. I helped by setting out some apps,
Carbalicious dippers for the guac, salsa and humus, along with unpictured veg crudites, blue corn chips, shrimp cocktail and drinks!
I also made a pretty tasty Mediterranean orzo salad with sun-dried tomatoes, feta, olives and grilled peppers and onions that I will post the recipe for soon!
It was a fun party and cool for the girls to bring their families together–they have known each other since middle school, crazy to think they are all leaving this fall for college!
Yesterday morning, I met my friend early to ride. Riding Gaston makes me miss riding Gaston!
After we rode, I had to catch a ferry to get home so I could work at the yoga studio this afternoon. We got new hardwood floors this weekend, so the studio has been closed. I cleaned, worked at the computer a while and took a class–my body needed it after a few days off! It was definitely an intense class, especially the first hour, with the hot hot heat we’ve been having. I think that somewhat helped me get further into the poses, and I know I’ll be glad I did it today!
While entering computer data, I munched this new-to-me bar that I wanted to review; Crunch peanut butter Cliff I typically don’t really like Clif bars because I think they are too…sticky??, but I liked this one a lot! It was crunchy but kind of tasted like a mushy peanut butter and honey sandwich. Sounds gross, but it worked! 😉

I also went grocery shopping and found some fun new finds!!!
Kale Chips, have seen these all over the blog world, will review soon!
Soysations faux cheese blend, hearts of palm, Corn thins, rythm chips, kammut puffs cereal, kashi honey sesame crackers
*not a very produce-filled shop 😉
Today I have another day off and I plan to make good use of it! My boss is out of town this week so I am working tomorrow through Friday instead of my usual Mon-Wednesday. We are also having a huge family day event Friday that should be a lot of work fun, can’t wait to recap that!
Plans for today include a possible Target run and sushi date, probable Whole Foods, yoga and definite beach adventure with my house! I have missed most of the beach outings because of work so I am so excited to go today!!
What did you do this weekend? Do you like Clif bars, favorite one? Do you prefer entertaining or going to parties?
Also, the jury’s totally out. Okay, leftover’s don’t taste better lol 😛
My new buddha key chain I bought on a whim yesterday, I love it! It's purple and so cute and I love to see it and think "yogi breath" lol, also love to add fun things to my key chain, haven't done that in too long!
