Yesterday I was feeling pretty good. I don’t know if it was the weather or what, but I was feeling better and I had a major surge of energy.
I started off the day by having to go to the hospital lab for a quick test. Nothing too bad. It’s about 1/2 hr away, but it was a beautiful Saturday morning drive. I munched on one of yesterday’s muffies.
I then went straight to the Union Square Farmer’s Market (LOVE!) It was so beautiful out…the perfect farmer’s market day! I had to keep putting more quarters in the meter because I didn’t want to leave!
Besides feeling great about what I’m purchasing, there’s something about being at farmer’s markets, and this one in particular, that just makes me feel good allover. Everyone just seems so friendly and peaceful and even though you’re surrounded by mostly strangers, you know that you all have a common goal of eating and using locally grown products.
Or at least looking at pretty flowers and sampling free chocolate. I digress.
I did score some great things and I couldn’t wait to tell you about them!
Really cute plums (I believe that’s the scientific name),
the most beautiful tomato I ever saw,
Corn, boston lettuce, and zucchini,
(Green veggie photo shoot break)
Taza chocolate (A.MAZE.ING.),
and a special package!
After my photo shoot, I proceeded to soak up all the rays that was my sunny living room and stare longingly and my 4 simple yet beautiful new flowers.
Then, I went for a run! Err…jog. It’s been really hard with my stomach lately, but I’ve been trying to do baby steps. Basically jog a little bit until I’m doubled over in pain. I have yet to figure out if this is a good idea or not.
After my run and shower, I made some lunch.
That would be organic avocado, fresh local tomato, and veggie hummus on locally made sunflower bread. Nice little summer sandwich!
The rest of the day was far less productive than the first part, but it’s okay because it was wonderful.
To help prepare for dinner, I was given a very imporant mission.
Mission Tackle Pineapple!
that thing was out to get me! Luckily, with the help of my trusty sidekick, the boyf, we were able to show that pineapple who’s boss.
well, pineapple, you don’t look so tough without your jacket and hat now, do ya?
After I completed my mission, I proceeded to do one of my favorite things ever: keep the boyf company and act as his runner while he grills! This includes crankin up the tunes, and in this case, wine!
It was also time to reveal my special package!
My New Shirt!
But not just any new shirt – a WithinOrganics organic cotton tee! Their motto is “change your clothes, change your life” so you know they have to be something special.
They have a variety of women’s tees – all of them made with organic cotton, meaning that the cotton was grown without the use of any pesticides or toxins.
In addition to them being eco-friendly, they are also spiritually-friendly; each one of their shirts contains an affirmation on the inside! What a great idea!
“I am blessed.” :)
I also had the pleasure of chatting with Nikki, one of the co-founders of Within Organics. She is a DOLL. She literally radiates a passion for her company as well as a passion for life. I couldn’t not talk to her.
I was so happy that I was introduced to this wonderful company and score such a hot new shirt…check out the back!
As the boyfriend continued grilling, I continued frolicking around in my new shirt!
Before I knew it, dinner was ready!
Grilled salmon, fresh local corn, grilled pineapple, and some fresh WF bread. (don’t mind the appearance of the salmon. We’re still working on the fancy presentation thing. We just wanted to eat)
So good…I cleaned my plate!
The rest of the night was spent relaxing and catching up on Rookie Blue! (so good!)
Wheeew…that was a really long post. I need a break.
