Hello Weenie

Did I tell you we got a dog?

She is a tiny lil 5 pounder named Gertrude (Trudy for short).

Naturally, we like to put her in humiliating outfits for our own pleasure. Halloween is the perfect excuse to do so.

She was the belle of the ball at our halloween party on Saturday. I dressed as the Mad Woman in the Attic. You get exactly one million points if you have any idea what that is, which my uncultured friends were unable to do. Which is totally not their fault and they should in fact be praised for being friends with a giant nerd like me.

(Thank you to friend, Witt, for taking this delightfully creepy photo of me in madwoman action)

I also ran across this old throwback from 2010. I'm Annie Hall. Not sure if it was Halloween or just for fun as I would wear this on a normal day. (Side note: One of the biggest regrets of my life is misplacing those sunglasses).

Do you dress up your pets?
What's your favorite dress up moment?

365 Days of Breakfast

Breakfast, the rebirth of your digestive system; a gift of starting anew you can give yourself every single day if you choose to. Breakfast sets the tone for the day. Are you going to make healthy choices? Are you in too much of a hurry for a satisfying meal? Or did you not even do your body the kindness of a bite of sustenance to start your day? Breakfast counts, people.

I invite you to join me in my quest to document a year's worth of the MOST important meal of the day with the tag #365DaysOfBreakfast. I wanna know what you're eating. In the meantime, here is my first week of breakfasts out of 52.

Day 1: Mountain breakfast. Peppers and spinach scrambled eggs with a side of fresh avocado and apples. We are off to a good start.

Day 2: Breakfast on the road. Unsatisfying apple slices, soon washed down with a Burger King veggie burger. Please don't tell anyone.

Day 3: Monday blues (and pinks!). Chose sleep over freshly prepared breakfast and opted for a Luna Bar and a sunrise commute instead.

Day 4: Breakfast binge. Spent close to $10 at Sanfrancisco Coffee satisfying all my cravings. Here you see a scrambled egg croissant with lox and cheddar cheese, a small chai tea latte, and a side of grapes.

Day 5: Protein time! Plain yogurt with granola, flax seed, and protein powder.

Day 6: Mental health day. Treated self to a noon breakfast at Belly General Store in Virginia highlands where I always end up ordering the same thing: the egg tortilla with cheddar, avocado, and house mole sauce. TO DIE FOR.

Day 7: Homemade egg sammies on the porch. Served on flat bread with spinach, grilled tomato and onion, avocado and havarti cheese.
