there were so many fewer questions when the stars were just the holes to heaven..

so i woke up around one this morning having an asthma attack.  great way to start the day, right? honestly, it would have been ok if not for the two circumstances: 

  1. i had no inhaler with me.
  2. i already couldn't breathe out of my nose.
so basically, i was huffing and puffing all night long.  needless to say, i did not attend school today.  i woke up around ten and basically sat around until about 1, when i got a sudden burst of energy. i ran up to the gym and did this awesome workout.  i was also pretty much the only person at the gym, so i enjoyed that.  however, the gym air conditioning was broke so i was drenched in sweat by the time i left, and i may or may not have taken around  breaks and walked the last 6 minutes.  but hey, i got a workout, right? :)

need proof?

pre-gym. still got that swag surf.

post-gym.  and no, i do not work out with my hair down.  that's crazy talk.

after that, i went grocery shopping for my family and picked up a few goods that i forgot to snap a picture of.  i'm pretty sure i got bananas, strawberries, oranges, spring herb mix, snow peas, shredded carrots, balsamic vinaigrette, greek yogurt, lactaid, turkey, garlic hummus, and kashi honey sunshine cereal. basically what i live of off :)

i finally got around to cleaning out my car from the tragedy that was soccer season.  two hours of lil' wayne, scrubbing, vacuuming, washing, rinsing, and drying later, my car is almost as beautiful as ryan reynolds.  almost.


now that you've feasted your eyes on that, you can feast your eyes on my not-so-appetizing-looking-but-oh-so-amazing-tasting dinner.

stovetop oats!

it's all i was stomach has been kind of off today, so i wanted something simple.  i did my usual mix of 1/3 cup oats, 2/3 cup water, cinnamon, nutmeg, chopped banana, REAL maple syrup (which is 2387594375x better than the fake stuff and a little goes a longg ways), and a scoop of peanut butter on top.  this time, i spontaneously added the last of my lactaid on top (probably 1/3 cup) and everything was all goopy and wonderfully blissful :)

oats with a side of blackberry.

that's about the jist of today's happengs.  here's a quick recap of everything else:

-i planted a garden on mother's day :)

-i went to durham this weekend to meet up with some people i met that are also going to state in the fall, and i am BEYOND thrilled to be going in august!!

-i tried SIAHC.  for those of you who can't read minds, that means Salad In A Hummus Container. if you haven't tried it, do it STAT. it's amazing.

 i never would have thought an empty hummus container would make me happy.

as i typed this, i also demolished a bowl of honey sunshine cereal with almond milk and fresh sliced strawberries.  maybe a sliver of dark chocolate, too?  ah, well.  all's well that end's well.

ciao bella


  1. SIAHC- such an amazing idea! Everytime I try hummus on a salad it is too thick though, so apparently I'm doing something wrong haha ;)
    Love the smiley photo of you all glasses-ed up!
    Funny you mention Kashi sunshine, I just finished off my first box ever and loved it! A "healthier" captain crunch, no?

  2. alexis-try it using a vinaigrette as well; it thins it out. i love balsamic and hummus combo!

  3. Your day sounded very productive, despite your asthma attack. :) Salad in a hummus container? Genius! Too bad my hummus containers are not that balling and big. Darn. I will have to have roasted veggies in a hummus container instead sometime. :)

  4. katie-that is a genius idea! i just bought a smaller hummus today, so i'm sure i'll be able to make that tomorrow ;)

  5. whyyyy are you so adorable lol <3 i love you! great idea with the hummus container!

  6. oh my gosh I am so sorry to hear about your difficulties so early in the morning!! im glad that you felt better as the day went on :)

    genius idea with the hummus container!

    glad that your back to blogging too!
