I returned to what might be my new favorite spot today, Vinh Xuong Bakery. I might slightly be in love with Vietnamese coffee. Which is crazy because I have never really been a coffee drinker.
Today in addition to the coffee I tried a Bahn Mi Sandwich. There were lots of choices, as you can see on this menu board:
I did not expect that. I thought it was one specific type. But I decided to go with the combination, which seemed like the most traditional one. And man, I was not disappointed.
This thing was huge! They offered chili oil and jalapeños with it, which, of course I took.
And the iced coffee went really well with it. Not disappointed at all!
This year is really shaping up. I’m loving the new adventures, new foods and attempts to venture out from my norm. Hope I can keep it up.
I drink Jameson. I love my whiskey and very rarely stray from it. So I challenged myself today to drink something new.
So, I’m watching football at my favorite watering hole and was talking about my list with my friend Jason. He asked what I was doing today. I hadn’t really thought about it yet.
Most days, I wake up and scroll through the list to determine what is appropriate for the day and what I can get done. Being Sunday I typically am a little lazier than other days since it’s technically my Saturday afternoon.
So scrolling through the list I came upon “try a new whiskey” and Jason offered to buy!
There’s not a huge selection where we were but still a few I had never had before.
We chose this local Colorado one:
Jason tried one too.
It is not necessarily something I would drink on a regular basis but a nice change up for the day. A little more but than I’m used to with Jameson but a nice sweet finish.
I know it is something most people do on a regular basis but being a bartender often tends to lead to late nights and late mornings.
The new pup in the house is changing up the daily routine. I am waking up earlier so we can go on walks. I thought this was a perfect time to check this one off the list and hopefully start a new trend to last the year.
I made an egg sandwich this morning.
Fast and delicious. I probably need to go out and buy some other breakfast foods though.
I think, however, this will lead to more afternoon naps. But I’m ok with that because Bella is ready for naps too.
Best of luck to all of you out there still working on resolutions.
Yesterday was a big day! I checked off a major thing- I got a dog! A puppy to be completely accurate. She’s doing great. The next few months will be challenging as she accumulates to the house, understands my other dog Mia and learns all her training.
I’m excited for the adventure and decided this is a perfect item to kick off today.
I am a bartender so there are many days when I get off and sit down to have a drink with friends after shift. With a new pup in the house I know how important it is to be home with her as much as possible.
So, even though I am off work today, I will kick this off starting today and leave work directly after clocking out until February 5th… and of course I will try and continue that into the year… but baby steps!
Plus, it will give me extra time to start on that reading list I created on the 1st.
P.S. I used the cute picture of my sweet new pup, Bella, just to draw you in.
This is a big one! I got a new PUPPY today!
Her name is Bella and I rescued her from the Denver Animal Shelter.
I am so excited to spend a lifetime with her!
Some may not consider this a sport, but after completing on CrossFit class today, I say pssshhhh to that.
It was so intense and difficult and rewarding and body crushing and body building… there are so many ways to describe this… but over all those things alone classify it as a sport to me.
So today was day one, but I signed up for a six week challenge. I am excited and scared and really just hoping I complete it.
I found the program on Facebook and am really pleased with the place that I found CrossFit Eminence.
The coach today was great, inspirational, dedicated, and very understanding of my abilities (or lack there of).
I can’t wait for the rest of the classes!
