The Famous Floor

November 9, 2009

Jenna and I came back and crashed last night – after organizing our swag that it! We collected some really cool stuff but I have to figure out how to get it all home.

After 7 hours of rest, we used the code word "blog" to indicate that we were awake and ready for some healthy breakfast. Jenna made me one of her Amazing Grass smoothies, which I eat KERFishly in a bowl :mrgreen:

Have a great day in Healdsburg with Jenna and in San Fran. I’ve loved seeing all your pictures this weekend – SF is one of my favorite places and seeing all the sights again is great!

Loved that Gather article. It was very honest and beautifully written. “Foodover”–I’ll have to remember that term. I totally know what you mean! Here’s to a more even squiggly line :)

I love your ups and downs article, I find that the biggest thing I struggle with is consistency! Also jealous of that green smoothie!

It’s so fun that you get to reunite and see Jenna’s new place. I definitely need to make it down there to go wine tasting, it seems like an awesome experience.
Also – love your Gather posts, they are great and I read every one!

I absolutely love the picture of your breakfast on Jenna’s famous wooden floor! The trip to Healdsburg looked like so much fun– we go to Napa & Sonoma every February, but it is even more gorgeous this time of year!

Love the gather post. “No one is making me indulge at those events, so why can’t I just grow up and eat moderately and consistent with my weekday habits? ” This spoke to me. Little kids eat candy, ice cream and cookies till they’re sick, not adults. I’m slowly coming to the realization that I need to be in control of my actions when it comes to food. I need to be more consistant. Thanksgiving for me usually means I can eat whatever I want (especially desserts) because it’s the holiday and I can get back on track Friday. But this year I’ve already made the decision to treat it like any other dinner, not a big feast where I need to eat everything.

Hi! Just FedEx your stuff home. I usually take a slip from the office when I go to conferences. I take one for each service we use, and then choose the best way. If nothing else, Mailboxes Etc. (or whoever they are now) will set you up. Have a good trip back.

I always eat my SAIB KERFishly now. You are so Rachael Ray making up acronyms and adjectives for those acronyms. This comment is LTTTish (Lamer Than a Turkey on Thanksgiving).

I had a smoothie in a bowl when my mom was here and she thought it was crazy until she tried. Gotta love that my mom eats her smoothies KERF style!

Bowls! Practically anything that can be eaten from a bowl tastes good. And it’s so much more fun that way. ;)
