This beachy-vacation weather has been so relaxing compared to the wild atmosphere of New York… but oh how I do love that atmosphere ūüėČ ¬†I’ll miss these lazy days spent in North Carolina.

Another thing I’ll be missing?? ¬†My little girl– Loki ūüėÄ

I rescued this girl from a shelter a few years ago as an undergrad, and she follows me EVERYWHERE.

Unfortunately, last month I moved from a pet-loving apartment to an anti-pet apartment in The Village. ¬†She stays with my ‘rents for the time being and boy do we miss each other… ¬†but it’s okay because she loves the company of their dogs!!

 The Pooch Trio!!  Quite the menagerie, eh?

These dogs mean the world to me, and living in a space without them is difficult. ¬†I grew up surrounded by dogs, so it takes a lot of time to get used to coming home without being bombarded with doggie kisses, paws, and general all over l-o-v-i-n’!

Even as I write this post, Loki is sitting on the couch across from me creepily peering lovingly gazing at me with those buggy sweet chihuahua eyes.  So much love, sista.  So much love.

Other than dogs, my day was filled with a fishing trip at the newly renovated Jennette’s Pier, I finished reading Michael Pollan’s In the Defense of Food¬†(highly suggest!), then went to dinner with the ‘rents to celebrate my mom’s birthday.

Successful day, successful vacation.

Can’t wait to see Gus tomorrow in New York! ¬†He leaves California at 7am, so hopefully he won’t be super cranky when he lands ūüėČ

He’s just a foot and a half slightly taller than I am.

Off to read blogs for a bit with a little bit of THIS by my side…

Where would you want to go if you were visiting New York City for a week?

I’m trying to think of fun places to take him!

Buenos dias!!

Last night I slept like a baby.  Like a little infant.  It was unreal, so naturally I had to take advantage of my well rested state and go for a longgggg run, right?

FALSE. ¬†It was so humid that I thought I had sleep-walked myself into the bathtub without realizing it. ¬†Instead, I enjoyed a nice walk on the beach. ¬†Probably better for my tendonitis anyways… optimism success!

Today is my last day in North Carolina before I head back to NYC. ¬†As sad as I am to be leaving the beach and mi familia, I’m excited to get home. ¬†Mostly because my main man is coming to New York tomorrow to visit me tomorrow for a week ūüėČ ¬†He and I met in undergrad and have more or less been together in love ever since. ¬†Can’t WAIT to see his pretty face (and have someone to go on dinner dates with)!!!

GOOD Eats Time —
Overnight oats for breakin’ the fast. ¬†In the mix: packet instant oatmeal (not my first choice, but all the ‘rents had), 2/3 c almond milk, dollop of greek yog, mashed up strawbs, half a naner, ¬†about a cup of Kashi, sprinkled with cocoa powder. ¬†Standard 2 cups of coffee with caramel macchiato creamer.

I love making food look pretty… Fancy dish-ware? ¬†Count me in.

Look at that cocoa powder… I accidentally inhaled some of it, but it was totally worth it.

That’s all for now. ¬†Heading out fishing with the ‘rents for my last day here ūüôā ¬†I’ll probably just sit and read my Kindle (<— BEST PURCHASE EVUHHH) while my pole dangles in the water. ¬†Hopefully iced coffee margaritas will be incorporated some way or another ?!

Anyone else go out of their way to “plate” their food? ¬†

I just think it adds SO much to a meal!
