Ok, I am totally moving here. Look what I woke up to
I think it became officially Florida when there was an ORANGE TREE in the backyard.
Look at this view!!
I am moving here. It’s official. We are staying with Kim’s family…and they stocked up on yummy organic food just for us. Total love!
Oatmeal and toast it was! I topped the oatmeal with the Almond Butter plus my homeade trail mix. It was a mix of Kashi Strawberry Fields, Raisins, Soynut Trail Mix, and the LAST of my Dark Chocolate Covered Edamame Beans
Even in Florida I can make a mean bowl-o-oats.
Oats, Eziek, Smart Balance, Coffee. YUM!
We hung out for a while and before we knew it. Lunch was calling. (ok, maybe we slept in slightly.) 😉
We were then off to have a lunch at one of Kim’s favorite local Italian places…
We started carb loading for the race a little early. 😉
They had tons of tasty looking options..
Grilled Eggplant….yes, please!
This combo was absolutely amazing. The melty cheese, pesto, peppers, and eggplant made a fantasmic combination! I love these little local places. Emily was in full force blogging and carb-loading as well.
After lunch it was time for stereotypical Florida tourist fun!
All I was missing was a Hawaiian shirt, big floppy hat, and fanny pack. I am seriously in love with this weather!
Did I mention I was a major tree hugger.
Oh yes, I am rocking the flip flops. Took a while for my feet to re-adjust to them! It was like a body trying to reject a virus! Don’t worry, it eventually caved and accepted the open toe-ness.
Snacked on my favorite while waiting on dinner…
Now we are back at Kim’s house waiting for a delicious dinner (I smell it wafting in my room which is a clear sign that I need to be tracking down the whereabouts of this amazing odor.)
We are going to do my favorite activity post dinner. GROCERY SHOPPING! Publix and Fresh Market are on the agenda. Hey you Clearwater/Tampa peeps, where else do I need to go?!?!
