Things Are a-Happenin’ Thursday

July 7, 2011 · 27 comments

Check out who showed up on my doorstep yesterday.


She’s in town visiting her grams and playing with me until Friday. I’m learning all kindsa things about vegan eats while she’s here. I even watched her make the coveted cookie dough bowl last night.

And we hit up one of my favorite local restaurants, Mahi Mah’s (which Katelyn actually picked out from OpenTable) for a fantastic combo of mixed fruit salad and blackened tuna.

I’m renaming this dish. It’s now called pillowy clouds of fruity fishy heaven.

Mmm.. maybe that’s why I don’t own a restaurant.

Tonight, Jamie and I are dragging her to an intense class offered at my gym called Tabata TNT. And then I’m dragging her on a run afterwards. Dear Katelyn, are you regretting coming to visit a marathon trainee?

I also became host of the year when I posted on Skinny Dip Frozen Yogurt‘s Facebook wall and asked them to have a vegan flavor available for tonight.

Just spreading the vegan love. Too bad I like cheese, eggs, and turkey way too much to do it myself.

Spreading The Breast Cancer Awareness

AND guess whose sister made the front page of the newspaper?


She’s spreading the word about breast cancer awareness. 35 is the new 40. Since she was diagnosed as a 36-year-old, 40 would have been so late for her to catch her cancer. How she ended up getting her mammogram that may have saved her life is a pretty incredible story – click here for the full article.

Video Call via Facebook

And who saw the newly-launched Facebook “video calling” feature? There’s a promo video available, too. Think Facebook meets Skype. Now, who wants to video call me and help me pick out my outfits every day?

Wish baby dinosaur arms and me some luck at our fitness class.

13 Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy July 7, 2011 at 8:12 pm

Have fun at your class/during your run! I think I would think twice about visiting a marathon trainee if they were going to make me run long distances with them :).


14 Kristen @ notsodomesticated July 7, 2011 at 11:49 pm

That tuna looks amazing! And if I was Katelyn, I’d tell you to go have fun with your workouts and I’d see you later for some frozen yogurt!! πŸ˜‰

You two are so cute! She looks hilarious – glad you guys are having a great time together!

Love that your sister is spreading the word about 35-as-the-new-40! I’ve actually told several of my friends who are in their 30’s about your sis’s story! So I appreciate you sharing it here so I could pass it on.

Also, totally amazing that you asked for the vegan ice cream! I should try that with sugar free flavors. Most froyo places just have vanilla available or maybe strawberry if I’m lucky. But they claim to have other sf flavors in rotation… I just never catch them when they’re out I guess. So maybe I’ll beg very nicely and see what happens. πŸ˜‰

Glad you and Katelyn had fun! Happy (almost) Friday!


17 Melissa @ Live, Love, & Run July 8, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Okay, ladies like you two make ladies like me want to go blonde! Gorgeous!

Hope your class and run went well!!! I need more friends like you…ones that’ll want to exercise while I visit.


18 Holly July 8, 2011 at 2:07 pm

OMG- Yes, you get my vote for host of the year! That’s awesome that you got vegan frozen yogurt for Katelyn! I actually didn’t even know you COULD get that…now I’m curious to find out if my local frozen yogurt place can…mmmmm…you’ve got me thinking πŸ™‚
