We have made it a tradition to go out for Mexican food after Gidget's school, well, only if it is nice outside so she can sit with us. It is so nice to be able to go out together. Since we got Gidget we haven't been out too much since she has separation anxiety and cannot be left alone. We are working with a trainer and things are moving along, but could take some time before we can go out without her. We are in it for the long haul, however long it takes, we will put in the work, she is worth it.

Every morning I make myself a smoothie for breakfast. I am super lucky to work at a place that provides fresh and frozen organic produce and a VitaMix for the times when I don't have time to mix one up before I leave my house. This morning's blend contained: one apple, one banana, 2/3 C. Frozen Mango, 1/2 C. Frozen Blueberries, handful of kale and water. Yumm!

Time for another photo a day project. I thought, instead of giving something up for lent, why not add something that I really love and would like to do more of, like taking pictures. So from now until Easter, I will post a photo a day. Nothing fancy and I am not putting pressure on myself regarding which camera I am using. Actually, I may take them all with my iPhone this time around since I always have it with me. Enjoy!I took this photo this morning before my acupuncture appointment - I love all the points on the fence representing the needles that were stuck in me. I love acupuncture, it has changed my life for the better this time around. (iPhone)

I have been on super strict eating plan as per my acupuncturist (vegan, no gluten) but, with it being Fat Tuesday, I decided a little vegan Indian pizza would be a good treat. It was delicious, but I am a bit nervous about what I may feel like tomorrow.
Anyway, just thought I would post a funny picture since tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. This photo is from 2 years ago when I went to Mass before work and I got this HUGE cross on my forehead. I got great comments all day like:
- "Hey Sister Christian"
- "Wow...there's something on your forehead"
- "New Priest?" - this one is actually my favorite.
The best part of all of this is Tim went to Mass after work that year and when he came home he had a tiny smudge of black on his forehead - nothing compared to my mark. I looked like a member of the Manson Family!
Enjoy and laugh your heart out.PS - Are you giving anything up for Lent? I am still up in the air, but will make a final decision by midnight tonight.

Wow! I just saw this iphone cover in Country Living Magazine and I am not only in love with this exact cover (which I will have soon), but with the entire concept of this website. Oodles of artwork to choose from and you can get it in many different formats from iphone covers to stretched canvas - check it out at Society 6.

Brunch with Gidget.
Today was the first time we have gone out to eat in over a month! Since we adopted Gidget (she has major separation anxiety*) we have been in lock down. Sometimes its just nice to go out and eat. So, after running some errands we headed to the Castro to see who had sidewalk seating and ended up at Cafe Flora. Gidget just sat in her little bed on the chair and did really well, despite licking the bacon in Tim's plate when his breakfast showed up. It was a beautiful day to eat outside as well, is it really February?
*working on her separation anxiety, thankfully we have a both a great trainer along with a wonderful friend (Wendy) helping out.
