Life of Late ~ 6.5.15

Today is Friday the 5th of June and it oh so happens to be National Donut {Doughnut} Day.  Yes folks, we have arrived at the day of the week that celebrates the most delectable and often deadliest breakfast item.  In honor of that, I’d like to start this post with a recent find on the west side, thanks to a November Project recommendation.


Get this…it’s in a CAR WASH!  Don’t worry, health code is all up to date and probably a whole lot cleaner than some of those food carts you see around the city…


Maybe not ideal to start the morning with a bucket full of sugar, but I had to test out the maple waffle and pineapple selections.  Plus, we had just worked out soooo it’s all justified, right?

^^ Typical commute from November Project to work.  I’ve gotten surprisingly good at running with my backpack, although I don’t think I’ll be racing with it any time soon.


^^ Volunteering with my buddies at last week’s UAE 10k and oh, it just so happens that we made it on NYRR’s Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.  #grassrootsgear #winning #novemberproject #noshame


^^ Celebrating a friend’s send-off with a touristy rooftop bar.  Touristy or not, the view isn’t half-bad.


^^ CNN celebrating 35 years and so of course that means some free t-shirts, photo-booths, and sneak-peek at upcoming documentaries


As you may have picked up from my posts and blog, I love the beach, sun, and anything tropical.  The joke was that I would grow up to be a dolphin trainer, braid hair, and live in Hawaii (sorry if I have already said this here…it’s a common story) Anyways, I love tiki themed parties and used to be obsessed with the tiki and tropical section of Oriental Trading.  Well, while in Norway, we happened to see THE boat that discovered Easter Island.  More on that trip next week (Norway, not Easter Island), but I decided a picture with Mr. Easter Island was necessary.

IMG_0180I arrived home to this amazing package, thanks to my blend friend Meighan.  We were roommates last year at the Blend Retreat and since I wasn’t able to attend this year, she was a doll and sent me some of the good stuff.  I mean, oats, Honey Stinger, and yogurt coupons and I was a VERY happy camper!  Not to mention, those sesame crackers? I was skeptical but am on the hunt to find more.


^^ Did you know that Denmark is the HOME to Lego?  That’s actually why Meghan chose it as her study abroad program.  Just kidding.  Maybe 😉

  1. If we had a good donut place near me, you better believe I’d be celebrating national donut day. Unfortunately, the best I can do is Dunkin and let’s be honest… they aren’t thattt great. I would totally go to a sketchy car wash for good donuts!!!
