WISH LIST

it’s hard to believe that the holidays are already around the corner! where did this year go? as i was walking to my train this evening i heard the familiar jingle of a bell, the salvation army had set up a station near the PATH station and have started to collect their annual holiday donations. this lead me to thinking….gifts for the friends and family! i luckily have already pre-ordered a gift for the boyfriend so it really just leaves the rest of my family and of course a little something for me!

TRAVEL

this vacation was a long time coming (3 years from the last proper one)! we traveled to punta cana, dominican republic. it was not my first time traveling to dr but it was for boyfriend. there was plenty of swimming, tanning, and relaxing.

i already want to return and have some more carefree, relaxing days ahead of me!

DAILY GRUB

it’s a gloomy and rainy day in jersey city and i’m in the beginning stages of getting a (hopefully) minor cold.  what could be better on a day like this than some green tea and vegan blueberry multigrain pancakes!  to pack as much immune boosting ingredients into these bad boys as i could, i added some flax seeds to the mixture and topped the finished product with lemon zest, agave nectar, and powdered sugar just for good measure!

as for the rest of the day, i foresee much netflix and hulu watching with miss ramona!

cheers!

MEET RAMONA

ImageImage

hello all! as this is my first post i felt it was appropriate to introduce everybody to ramona, my adorable 6-month old polydactyl kitten! for those of you unaware of what polydactyl or hemingway cats are, they are cats simply born with extra toes or fingers on their paws. ramona has thumbs!

at this very moment, ramona is fast asleep! but in a few short hours this crazy girl will start running laps back and forth in our small apartment!
