Welcome to Long Beach, CA

Hello, readers!  Sorry for the delay, there were job applications to be completed, and long drives to make!

Yesterday: Beverly Hills

There was no big agenda yesterday, so Kari and I just took our time in the morning.

After eating an energy bar, we made a quick trip to her gym:


Time: 35 minutes

We had been hoping to run outside, but it was very windy and a little rainy, so we stuck to the gym.

More fro-yo was consumed:


Pumpkin Pie and Pistachio Fro-Yo mixed together, with nuts, strawberries, and a little Butterfinger on top!

Later, I had lunch and watched the Office (Kari has been getting me hooked.  As if there weren’t enough shows I watched on Thursdays already. 🙂 ) while Kari met for a group project:


Apple Cherry Pomegranate Juice from the Farmer’s Market.


Check out that ingredients list!


And a big salad. Lots and lots of veggies, with a few little samplings of pasta salad.

We decided we needed to explore some more of the LA-area, so we decided to drive through Beverly Hills to see some of the fancy houses.  I messed around with my camera while I waited for Kari to get ready:


We decided to walk around a bit in Beverly Hills, near Rodeo Drive.  We had to stop by the famous Crumbs:


My Chocolate Raspberry Cupcake. Yum!!


I had to try a bite then and there.  I saved the rest for later… After Kari got yet another fro-yo ( 🙂 ), we drove to the Sunset Strip for dinner:


My yummy ham and swiss crepe. So good!


And more fro-yo, naturally.  This time, I got original tart with kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, coconut, and a few white chocolate chips. Yum!  Though I think after this week I’m good on frozen dairy products for awhile. 🙂

We ended the night with some more Office and relaxing.

Today:  Moving to Long Beach

This afternoon, I left Kari (sad 😦 ) to go to Long Beach for the Society of Women Engineers National Conference.  I am, however, very excited to see all the SWE people, and the Conference is always fun!

I haven’t been taking pictures of my food today (bad blogger!), so I’ll start with food recaps again tomorrow, okay?  I think I need to have my thyroid checked again, because I have been exhausted for nearly 3 weeks now, regardless of how much sleep I get.  Luckily, I have an appointment scheduled for two days after I get back.

Additionally, I think I will be making a big announcement later this week about where Dan and I are moving after graduation…stay tuned!

I’m working on our Save the Dates this week, too.  Should I post about it on my blog?  Leave me your feedback!!

Follow Me on Twitter!

I finally gave in a few weeks ago and joined Twitter.  I didn’t post it on the blog initially, because I wanted to see how I liked it first.  Its been going well, though, so… follow me, savvyeat, here!

    Hola! I must say, you look like a teenager! Unless you really are a teenager and then the compliment means nothing.
