another hump!

good morning!

i’m in a pleasant mood today. probably because i had a great workout and a yummy breakie this morning! but we’ll save that breakie for tomorrow’s post. yesterday i did some more shopping for my new apartment and my mom bought me really pretty bedding. i love it! with each day i’m getting more and more excited for the move. it’s a long drive up, so we’re splitting it into a two-day road trip. last night my mom and i looked up vegan restaurants located in a couple of cities we’ll be stopping in. so now we have a plan for where we’re going to eat on our way there! so fun! today we’re going shopping for a few more apartment essentials, and i’m going to look at hiking shoes as well. i’m pretty sure i’ll be doing a lot of hiking up where i’m going to school. there are such gorgeous trails there, so how could i not?! anyway, enough chitter chatter for now. let’s get to yesterday’s eats! a.k.a. the stuff you actually want to hear about.

cinnamon groats, banana-cherry soft serve, more cinnamon, coconut butter

    I went through a stint of jigsaw addiction a while back – so much fun. Trails are the best, get out there and enjoy those when you’re up at school! & gotta love those groats, good stuff.

    Sweet potato and peanut butter is possibly the best combo ever! Almond butter is good too šŸ˜‰

    Love the eats, and I’m so glad you had such a good day – starting with a great break and workout – that’s definitely key for an excellent day.

    Love always,

    3 things:
    1. your sandwich looks tasty, is 7 sprouted grains a brand, like ezekiel?
    2. I didn’t realize dark chocolate is vegan (but I guess that makes sense, since the other is called milk chocolate).
    3. puzzles rule!

    I just found your blog, I’ll be back again!

  18. sarahdbelle Says:

    All of your food looks so delicious- especially the sandwich and sweet potato! And that puzzle is gorgeous! Glad you’re getting excited about the move ; )
