  • Holla!!

    So this weekend it was absolutely pouring in Vancouver, but Mike and I were headed to the Sunshine coast… It’s gotta be sunny there, right?


    Sure enough, one short ferry ride away and we were in the most bountiful serene location with nothin but sunshine…

    Mike was filming a wedding, it was my thought to go to the coast and just unplug from everything. Just get away and try to totally relax…

    We had lunch at a cafe called Wheatberries Cafe. The bread they make is AMAZING…

    Pretty good cookie too:)

    Sechelt, BC (where we were) is the home of Holy Crap cereal. I remember I took this picture as a joke of this cereal, A) because of the name, B) Because of the price- it was $12.99 a bag) But recently, I saw this stuff on Dragon’s Den and I learnt what a big hit it is. I just may have to try it. We saw the factory right in this really small town. A true success story!

    When Mike took off to the wedding, I spent a lot of time laying on the beach, (I spent as little time in the motel room as possible- it was ghetto!!! But then I decided to paint my nails. I don’t have a nursery to paint blue right now, so I did my nails in honor of my son instead!

    I’m now 22 weeks pregs. Things are going pretty well. I’ve had more appointments for this and that. I wonder if I wasn’t self-employed, I might have been fired by now with all my appointments. Also- I feel super blessed for the medical system we have because my pregnancy probably would have costed like $20,000+ in just the first 5 months! But everything is looking up now. I am coastin on easy street for the rest of the pregnancy.

    At the Women’s Hospital I saw this little incubator. First time I saw a real one in person. Tugged at my heart strings. It was a donation box for babies who need extra help, I gave a donation and a prayer to any babies that may need the help.

    My new “motto” for the pregnancy is “Live and Let God”.

    We are busy packing and getting ready for a move. Less than a week now- As you can imagine, it’s a bit nutty, but I’ll keep ya posted!!!

    What is shake, rattle and rolling? How awkward hey? Can you imagine if I just came up to you and said that? You would probably think I’m a wierd-o.. This is how I would sound:

    The Vegan Challenge has been going off without a hitch. Here is a surprisingly accurate recap on my vegan meals yesterday. (Like the title says- my attempt at food blogging, lol)

    Yesterday we bought some stuff at Choices. I cropped Mike‘s stuff out of the picture;) I got Ezekiel Bread, beans, frozen spinach and peas, Amy’s Soup.

    While we were shopping, I couldn’t help but notice this cereal. Has anyone out there ever tried it?

    Is it called Holy Crap cuz it’s good, OR cuz “HOLY CRAP THAT’S EXPENSIVE CEREAL?!”

    On the way home we stopped at our local produce palace. (it’s good quality and inexpensive). Do you get your produce somewhere different than where you buy other stuff?

    SO here is EVERYTHING I ate yesterday (so not fancy..let me warn ya)

    The Apple and Homemade Almond Butter

    For a snack it was a handful of walnuts and dried cranberries

    And for lunch it was a salad. I remembered to take a picture half way through eating it! Oops.

    Then we ran some errands and I got a Soy Latte. For dinner I had a toasted piece of Ezekiel bread with Tofurkey slices and a pint of mustard!  I had 2 of these!

    And for a night time snack, I should have had veggies or fruit, but I opted for the sesame sticks that Mike bought for himself, but I am eating them!

    If I were a food blogger, I would do little scenes like this….

    and I would send you messages through the food I eat

    hi <3

    All in all, the Vegan challenge has been really easy. It is a matter of no cream in my coffee. The scenarios where it usually gets more difficult is on weekends, when you go out for dinner or are out with friends. Butter and cheese seems to creep its way into everything, but I’ve done it before, so I know I can carry on with this confidently:)

    I have a lot of respect for food bloggers. Although I post recipes and take pics of my food now and then. To do it all day, everyday would be challenging. But if that was your career, you just do it… I WOULD DEFINITELY NEED A BIGGER KITCHEN… Excuses, excuses hey? POOR ME….lol

    In triathlon training news, I took yesterday completely off. I was supposed to go to a workout class taught by my friend Hannah, but I cancelled. I needed a day of no exercise. ¬†Tonight my club is running, we are working on Tempo runs. I am supposed to swim today, but it looks like I will take that off as well. It may sound lame, but I’m not taking swimming off because I am tired, I am taking it off because my skin is having a minor allergic reaction to something today and I know the chlorine is going to make it flare up more. Too bad they didn’t make face bellaclava’s for swimmers. I would soo buy one. I am becoming more and more obsessed with swimming, I love it… BUT I HATE the chlorine… ick…

    Well, time to go…working on some neat-o mosquito things this week! Hope your having a great day!
