Packing & Baking
I have been a busy girl so far this weekend.
First, I started packing for Food and Light
Things I know I am bringing:
Canon 24-70 mm lens (my daily go-to lens for everything. I never take it off!)
Tripod (per our instructors’ request or I wouldn’t bring it. I prefer to shoot free than on a tripod)
I love Etsy!
And of course I need my Macbook for blogging. I will definitely be blogging and sharing what I’m up to!
I have been a loyal Be Present customer for about eight years. I live in them. They’re especially nice for traveling because they’re lightweight, nearly wrinkle-free, and wash and dry very easily just in case you need to wash them in a hotel room bathroom. Not that I would know or anything.
I was wearing my Be Present’s in yesterday’s post at the MAC store. Be Present with a side of lip gloss.
Obviously I will be bringing more than a camera, tripod, and one pair of pants
and some lipgloss, but those are musts.
It was also a must that I got busy in the kitchen baking. Unbaking technically.
a batch of Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
Interestingly enough she is the same person who bid on and won my cookie dough balls when they were being auctioned in Katie’s auction for Japan.
I recognized Carrie’s shipping address and when we got to chatting on email, I instantly remembered her and who she was. I may forget names but I never forget faces. Or addresses it seems.
Thank you, Carrie, for being so generous in your support of these charity drives and auctions. The world needs more people like you!
I included some extra goodies in the box I am mailing on Monday before I leave for Boulder.
I hope Carrie likes the cookie dough balls. Round 2.
From my last post, thanks for the supportive comments. Yes, I am so excited for the trip and workshop! It’s a quickie, though. Departing Monday afternoon, returning Wednesday evening. Lots needs to happen before then. Like more packing!
And I am also going to enjoy some San Diego weather and get a nice run in
followed up with some at-home yoga for a few minutes.
Followed up with a snack
3 ingredients and stuffed with nut butter. 5 minutes to make. Easy.
1. How far in advance do you pack for your trips? What things do you always bring on trips?
I try to start packing a few days ahead of when I am departing so that way I can cross things off my mental checklist, like yep, leave-in hair conditioner is packed, running socks are packed. Those little random things that I’d otherwise overlook and would prefer to have make it with me on the trip!
For food, I am for sure bringing liquid vanilla stevia and a few snack/energy bars. I don’t travel without those things. Other than that, probably not too much since this is a quick trip. And I’m only going to Colorado. They have grocery stores there, I’ve heard.
2. What’s the best thing you’ve made, eaten, or done so far this weekend?
My vote is on the cookie dough balls for making.
And on the eating I have been going to town on Mango Ginger Chutney as a veggie dip. Hot fire mouth and all. I love it.
P.S. I am guest posting on Angela of Oh She Glow’s site today. Please check out my post with my 5 favorite vegan recipes that I shared. Angela is such a doll and a wonderful friend and I was excited when she asked me to guestie on her site.
P.P.S. Reminder to enter the Summertime Cooldown Giveaway if you haven’t already.
Enjoy your weekend!
