Day 3 – Coming out
I am so tired and yet feeling so great. I had a great day out with my friends today at the St. James Court Art Show, an annual thing here in our city that I have been attending for the past few years. It’s such a beautiful area.
Jim, Courtney, Renee, Me, Carrie and Beth. I love Fall clothes with sunglasses. It was a beautiful day today.
To get the day started I had some pumpkin oats with peanut butter 🙂 I just totally forgot to get a picture of it even though I finally replaced the batteries.
On the way, we stopped at Starbucks where a friend and I took the VIA test challenge and we CORRECTLY identified which one was which. However, I’m still a fan of the VIA and I used the $1 off coupon the guy gave me to buy some for home! I also had a tall soy vanilla latte to warm up on a crisp Fall day.
Also on the way there, we discussed my recent decision to go vegan for a while. For the most part, my friends are supportive, but I know it is not easy, so I’m not expecting them to bend over backwards. I am totally capable of peeling off cheese and whatever other exception I may have to make from time to time when we all eat together (like Wednesday night dinners).
I know it sounds cheesy but I’m sort of glad to be “out” to my friends now. My family is next I suppose 😉
Obviously, there were lots of food options at the art fair:
But I just decided to eat a Nature Valley bar and a banana while I was there. We also got a free can of La Croix which was totally awesome! I had the orange flavor and now I hope I can find it at a store somewhere 😉
My friend Jim ate for us though…I believe he had a cheeseburger, two hot dogs, a big cookie and this bratwurst. We love Jim!
Then after the fair, we went to one of my favorite places in Louisville…Shiraz!
I got hummus, of course.
And I also ordered the falafel, minus the tzatziki sauce. I just used hummus instead 🙂
I ate just about everything as I’d worked up quite the appetite from walking around all day. It was such a good meal and a great day with friends.
After this, I went home for a while then went grocery shopping for the week. We are sort of under a tight budget this week, so it made things interesting. But I think we will manage, we usually do.
For “dinner” I wasn’t too hungry, so I just had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich…love this blueberry! It’s Smucker’s Simply Fruit, which I believe to be vegan as I examined the ingredients list 🙂
My internal clock must be out of whack because I am ready for bed now, ha ha. I’ve gotta try and stay up a little longer to see Ryan Reynolds on SNL but I’ll most likely record it too because I know I won’t make it very far 🙂
Hope you all had a great day and a wonderful weekend!
p.s. I realize I did not have a Day 2 post but it was rather unremarkable (and with no pictures). Except for the awesome 3 mile run that I did in 29:30 with NO WALKING! Woo hoo.
