Can you believe that Christmas is ONE WEEK from today?! Is this for real? I seriously don’t know where this year went, and I’m in shock that we only have two weeks left in 2015.

I’ve been up to my ears in holiday-themed festivities (along with the rest of the Internet), and I must say, I love everything being so festive. Blasting holiday music and looking out my window to see twinkle lights adorning all of the houses makes the long, dark nights a whole lot more bearable. [Read more…]

Finally! Finally, finally, finally. I’m finally better. After a month of being miserably sick, I can now leave the house for more than five minutes and function like a normal human being. Oh man, you have no idea how good it feels! After a month of couch arrest, I was so ready to be out in the sunshine.

Yesterday was my first day of feeling good enough to go out, and I had an amazing, itch-nausea-headache free day (Yes, my symptoms were nausea, an inability to keep anything down except for bread and Gatorade, itching all over, swollen hands and joints, and pounding headaches. Fun, right?)! My sister was back from college for the weekend, so my dad, my sister, my dog and I went on an amazing walk around our neighborhood.

The sun was out and shining, the most gorgeous day we’ve had here in San Diego for a while. After that, we went to a street fair and then to the farmer’s market. The farmer’s market was amazing! We bought bags and bags of fresh, locally-grown fruit, tried the most amazing gyros I’ve ever had, sampled more hummus varieties than I can count, and had super yummy crepes for lunch. I hope everyone else has as great as a farmer’s market around them as I do! If you have one and have never been, please go! Promise, you’ll have a great time and even if you don’t buy anything, you’ll leave full from all the amazing food samples!
