reading: Americanah – so good! Then I have no less than a million books already downloaded to read next. By the way, have you used AmazonSmile? You can designate your favorite charity and then 0.5% of your purchase will be donated to the charity of your choice. (I obviously chose MAZON!)

spending a glorious week in Mexico. Lazy, beach vacations are the best, especially when they involve family. (post coming soon on Sayulita!)

making fresh ceviche in Mexico. I worried a few times about the fish not being kept cold enough, the little friend who was stabbing the fish with a stick, and keeping it in the fridge for a day. But my brother quickly shut me down, reminding me that I’ve never had fish that fresh. Ok then.

not attending Expo West this year. It’s the first year in seven that I haven’t attended and I’m kind of depressed about it/I feel really out of the loop.

starting to kind of run again. By kind of I mean, walking for a while and running for a while. I don’t hate it.

still eating my favorite lunch on a weekly basis: qrunch burger + goat cheese + avocado + some turkey slices with more avocado + carrots. It’s satisfying, delicious and requires NO prep.

using four elements golden crown botanical elixir – for mature skin. Because as you know, I’m freaking out about wrinkles. I’ve also started getting serious about using products that are as natural as possible. This line is as good as it gets and I love supporting businesses that I know and believe in (everything is made in my home town).

testing out a ton of new recipes (a lot of them were inspired by our Mexico trip and many will be coming soon!).

drinking tea again. I don’t drink much tea in the summer, but now that the weather has (sort of) cooled down, I’m all about it. I also try to use Sugar Cookie tea as a dessert in the winter. Sometimes it works. finishing my half marathon! I ran the Rock N’ Roll Los Angeles on

signing up for a half-marathon. Remember that time I signed up for one and then went to Napa to drink wine and learn about peanuts instead? Yeah, I needed to find another one. It’s on Sunday! trying a great pinterest recipe: creamy caprese quinoa bake via half baked harvest. SO good. running a lot. “re-fueling” a

making veggie burgers…totally unlike me as I really enjoy the real deal but I had some leftover lentils in the freezer and just took it from there. I accidentally made it into hummus. So I added more beans. Then I added brown rice. Then it was just right, though crumbly. And good! (Lentils + 1 egg +

sailing in San Diego. Can I live on a boat? checking out some live music (in 90* heat) in Pasadena for a Music Festival – we saw Yacht (they opened for Postal Service at the show in Vegas but we missed them) and Robert DeLong. loving working happy hours at Malibu Fish & Grill. so ridiculously obsessed

reading The Girls Guide to Homelessness. Really good. finally hiking up to the Hollywood sign! eating out like 10 meals in a row. BAD! walking home from work in flats. I made it about 3.25 miles and then I had to call Richie to pick me up. getting into my annual spring/summer raw food grove
