I forgot to tell you the best part about my weekend – I FINALLY GOT A DINING ROOM TABLE!
Each room in my house is themed, because I am a huge nerd like that. My living room is Southeast Asian-inspired (filled with my souvenirs from Thailand + China + Laos); my bathroom is beachy with lots of washed out colors (think greens, pinks, yellows); and my dining room is going to be straight out of France!
Starting with an actual Provencal French tablecloth an exchange student gave my parents when he stayed with us…
With a side of an Henri Matisse print + Pumpkin Oats…naturally. ***Note: The theme of my kitchen + bedroom is TBD.
The theme of lunch was Morocco-revisited…
Look at those beautious layers…
Afternoon snack was a cup of Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate. I think I made the mistake of making it with water instead of milk. And you thought my mistake was having it in a Green Bay Correctional Institution mug. Oh how wrong you were.
After getting in late to work because of an eye appointment (more on that in a bit), I also left a wee bit early for my 2nd day at the new part-time gig. Of course, I needed a dinner that was portable and delish:
Materne Apple Cinnamon + Apple Peach
1 slightly green banana (the best!)
Trail Mix (apricots, Kashi Heart2Heart + Cashew Granola Clusters)
Apple Peach Go Go Squeez: Another good flavor. However, I ate it after the cinnamon,
and although it was good, it stood no chance to be quite honest. The peach flavor was perfect though –
identifiable without being overwhelming.
After working for about 3 hours, I am now home, munching on carrots + PB and realizing I still have a bit left to accomplish before I can go to bed. Before I go, I wanted to mention I went to the eye doctor this morning. I have been suffering from really bad migraines for the past couple months (not good when you are a blogger – hello!), and I am getting new glasses! So, sorry for lack of commenting/reading/responding to all your wonderful e-mails – the nighttime seems to especially aggravate my poor head (which it is doing right now). Hopefully I shall be seeing clearer than ever by the end of the week!
Anybody out there have good tips for food photos when the lighting is crappy? The past week of rain + minimal sunlight at night and in the morning is killing me!
