My first WIAW!

Thank you to everyone who has entered the Stevia Giveaway so far. All of your blog and recipe suggestions are inspiring – I can’t wait to get working on them! Apparently, y’all have an obsession with cinnamon rolls…. If I undertake this, someone better make my recipe!

A Yes Woman update: Lately, I have upped the ante on being a Yes Woman. This may have come at the expense of my first week of Genes and Genetics, but meh! I did a lot of catching up over the weekend. In the last week or two, I have said Yes to:

a poetry open mic night

more rock climbing!

going to a farm and picking fruits and veg

(the fun was only slightly spoiled when my friend pointed out that we were doing for fun what others do for work…)

going out when I when I felt like being a hermit

trying a new restaurant

and last night?

salsa lessons!

That may all sound like fun and games, which it was, but I am not a good dancer. I love to dance and typically take a no fear-dont care if I look like an idiot approach, but that all goes out the window when it comes to a specific type of dance. If everyone is properly salsa-ing, waltzing, or two stepping, I don’t want to be the only one out there thats just shakin’ my hips and flailing my arms! So, I was a bit nervous to go to a salsa dance class last night, but my friend and I went and gave it a go! A Corona Extra with lime and a dash of salt mayyy have helped a tad…

But not nearly enough! We missed the first 5 or so minutes and tried to jump on in, but we weren’t able to catch up in time. After about 20 minutes (okay… probably more like 15), we gave up and went to a local trivia night downtown. Going to every trivia night in Davis is also on my Yes Woman list, so it was a win anyway!

And what did I have before my Corona? Allow my first What I Ate Wednesday to show you! I only photographed my meals, and not my snacks or spoonfuls of vanilla bean Talenti. I always get a bit bored when bloggers show the same picture of their hand holding an apple or a Larabar, so I figured I’d spare you.


A parfait of cottage cheese, Fiber One Honey cereal, cantaloupe, figs, and sliced almonds!

(accidently took the photos pre-almond-addition)

You don’t eat your breakfast out of a beaker too? What! Crazy.

It is actually a… souvenir from the death camp that was Biochemistry Lab last quarter. Don’t judge.


worlds best Cobb salad!


shredded romaine, 2 slices of nuked bacon, 1 hard-boiled egg + 2 hard-boiled egg whites, tomatoes, cucumbers, a smattering of bleu cheese crumbles

all tossed with salt, pepper, and Annie’s Cowgirl Ranch dressing


was a Whole Wheat or Bust classic – cheesy chicken enchiladas! No pictures though, I just wanted to enjoy my meal sans glass lens.

And that was…

  1. loveeee your yes-woman mission and all the things youre doing to accomplish it! rock-climbing? salsa lessons (corona’s a good idea haahhh)? can i please join you? life looks pretty rockin’ for you right now (and love that shirt you wore for fruit-picking!)

    yummy eats, esp the figs!!!!!!!! =)

    meet up soon!??!

  2. Dude, why don’t I have a beaker for eating out of? Goodness knows I did my share of labs involving them!

    I did some rock climbing in grad school and really miss it. It was almost meditative for me – for the moments I was climbing, my mind was totally focused on, well, not dying. πŸ™‚ Most of the time my mind is so busy and all over the place, I loved that it was singularly focused during a climb.

    1. E x a c t l y. You hit the nail right on the head – while I am climbing, I can’t think of anything else other than death avoidance. It is perfect for me! Do you have a rocknasium near you? You should get back into it!! 

    1. Bahaha, probs not – I am probably giving myself cancer or something. Whoo knoowss that has been in that beaker!  I did wash it though?….. I should have boiled it for like 3 hours….
