First of all, thanks for the comments on my last post; I was brought to tears by the compassion and support every blogger comment provided and I’m absolutely speechless. Thank you all so, so much. I don’t know where I would be without you.
On to happier things! I headed off to Sacramento today!!!
It’s a six hour drive to the capital city and to me, that’s nothing compared to the driving I’ve been doing lately…I mean, LA to Las Cruces = 12 hrs!
Anyhow, up early I had the quickest breakfast to start: Kashi Honey Sunshine, banana, frozen raspberries and unsweetened almond breeze.
I left my house around 11am and was set with a lunch in tow!
First up, an apple (sorry for the crotch shot!)
And a ww pita filled with natural pb…You can never have enough Peanut Butter!
I decided I’d show off some of the
boring valleys that I drove through today:
Tajon Pass (renowned for the fact that you climb 5,000 ft in elevation in about 20 miles, and then come all the way back down to sea level in another 20.
Tajon Pass = overheated radiators. Always. I believe I saw at least five.
And then I saw this, and smelled it (crap and rotting flesh?!) and remembered exactly why I have been a vegetarian for almost EIGHT YEARS.
That is a cow lot, or slaughter farm. Gross.
Orange a few hours later, with three unpictured whole wheat mini raspberry and chocolate chip muffins (which, somehow how no chocolate chips…I needed chocolate!!!)
Sunset entering Sacramento!
Emily and I were starving by the time we finally met up and headed straight to Olive Garden: Soup, Salad and Breadsticks all the way!
I had the minestrone soup
one garlic breadstick
and three bowls of salad, sans as much dressing as I could…I’m not a huge fan of Italian, but I tolerate it.
Now I’m chilling out watching Gossip Girl and ready to hit the hay…driving and packing late in the evening and early in the morning makes me le tired…g’night!
