Random Tidbits About Me

The weekend is upon us, and I'm so excited! I thought I'd share a few random facts on my mind right now:

> I got my very first Macbook 7 months ago, and I love it. It is so pretty! I don't think I'll ever go back to a PC again. Oh, and it terrifies me. Confession: I have no idea how to really use it. In my defense, I never really understood my PC that well either. Mac does get major bonus points in my book for having no viruses (so far). I <3

> I can't wait to adopt our very first dog. We're looking at an October time frame. We have been so patient, I swear. Yes, we stalk our favorite dog adoption sites in WLA EVERYDAY, but we've managed to hold back since May. We wanted to be in the right situation to make sure that the newest member of our family got the proper attention and care he or she deserves. We've fallen in love with so many dogs at first sight, and then watched them disappear from the listings. It's torture. It's like watching that perfect pair of shoes for weeks, only to find that they're out of your size. We're also on the lookout for a dog carrier and playpen on the Los Angeles Craigslist board, because if we're gonna do this, we have to do it the green way.

> When you become a homeowner (or in my case, step-homeowner as the condo does not belong to me rightfully), you realize that no place is perfect. The recycling bins fill up by the second day after collection. The hallways are dim. There's a possible roach problem in the building as of this week. However, it's great to have an HOA that is so on top of the issues. I love coming home to a warm and inviting place. Our neighbors are great, and when I forgot to roll up my windows to the car and left it there for days, it was still there! No one took anything, damaged anything, and my awesome brown hoodie was still there. I love that I can take the Big Blue Bus to work everyday. Not having a lot of homeless people on my line is a major plus too. Despite the fact that the bf dominates every single closet in the condo (seriously, shouldn't it be the other way around), I still love everyday we spend together in our home.

> I've said it before, and I'm going to say it again - yoga is amazing. When I first started a couple years ago, my hands barely reached down to my ankles. Now, I am so close to laying my hands flat on the floor. I no longer need to go to Dr. Cooper to adjust my back, although I'll miss his friendly chatter. OK, and the fact that the awesome Eilat bakery was just downstairs from him and I can no longer get my challah fix taken care of. I just need to fix my old lady knees.

> We've now spoiled ourselves so much that we can't eat store-bought tortillas or pizza dough, or even granola. There's so much satisfaction in knowing exactly what goes into the food you put into your mouth.

> I love food blogs, but they all make me so hungry when I am at work. Like right now, I am imagining how the peach & goat cheese rustic pizza will taste when we test it out Sunday night.
