Can I just say that you guys are awesome! Thank you for all of the great comments on my self-image post. I knew I wouldn’t regret sharing my story. You’re all truly amazing. <3
I saw one of my favorite bands in concert last night.
I’ll get to that in a second.
First, I want to share this with you:
My green smoothie posed for a photo shoot in various spots in my apartment.
- 1 Scoop Chocolate Amazing Grass
- 1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 2 Spoons of Plain Chobani
- 1 Spoon of PB&Co Cinnamon Raisin PB
- Handful of Blueberries
I love when green smoothies taste like milkshakes. I drank that glass in one sip after my workout yesterday. Yes, I said workout. I was able to handle 30 minutes on the crossramp elliptical with no ankle pain. Wahoo! I didn’t want to push it and run because I still have my sports med. appointment on the 9th. I think I was able to do it because I wrapped my ankle and took ibuprofen beforehand. I was so happy to be back in the gym after almost two whole weeks of resting.
So, it’s totally normal to eat a salad out of a mixing bowl, right?
Because that’s exactly how I ate my lunch yesterday.
I was in the mood for a jumbo salad.
In the mix:
- Olivia’s Spring Mix
- Annie’s Balsamic Dressing
- Athenos Basil & Tomato Feta
- Green Pepper
And then I was off to Saratoga to pick up my parking pass for the concert. I asked Mae to come with me to the show because she loves the Counting Crows and because her birthday is next week! Yay for blogger concert dates!
I had a little time to waste before meeting up with her, so I hung out in my favorite coffee shop, Uncommon Grounds.
For dinner, I ordered a toasted Banana Nut bagel with PB & Honey.
Yum and a half.
I was given the opportunity to cover the Counting Crows show by the paper I write for.
Mae and I were a little early for the show, so, I took pictures of her pretending to run, obviously. Why wouldn’t I?
Totally normal. Just like big ‘ol salads in mixing bowls.
Then, I stalked some lady’s dogs, like the crazy dog-lovin’ gal I am.
Finally, we asked someone to take the mandatory “we’re at a concert so take our picture,” picture:
Half-way through the show, we realized we were in the wrong seats. Fail.
During intermission, I asked the audio tech 10 times for the set list before he gave it to me. I was also asked by several drunkards why I was taking notes. I told them I was crazy.
Ah, the adventures of being a journalist.
Oh, and I took a million pictures of Adam’ Duritz with his eye closed and his head tipped back:
Please note that he changed his shirt five million times during the three hour set.
It’s also crucial to note that I didn’t cry when the band came on stage like I thought I would. Self-control, people, self-control.
Again, you can read my complete review of the show here.
Overall, we had a blast!
Quick- what’s your favorite Counting Crows song?
Don’t listen to them? WHY? No- just kidding- favorite song of all time?
Have a great night! <3
