My Everyday Life [Week 9]

Girl scout cookies arrived! I clearly love peanut butter.
I had the privilege to attend a wellness seminar on Tuesday morning for work (I'm co-leading our wellness committee). This slide resonated with me. I loved talking about health for four hours. I couldn't get enough actually. I know it's my calling to work in that field someday.
I was near my new favorite vegetarian cafe, Beerline, so I headed there for lunch after the wellness seminar.
 I had a BLATz sandwich and loved it!
 I read my Kindle and relaxed while I ate.
I listened to Jewel's book on audio all week. Craig actually heard about the book via the radio and figured I would like it and he was right. My childhood experience was actually really similar to hers and it helps to hear how she's moved on from it.
We're geeks and go to the library once a week. This time, we got a bunch of movies and read magazines. 
I'm a cat lady, so I read Catster and spotted this funny article. Yep, this is so our cat Pema. I was actually reading the magazine to see if anyone else described a problem like Pema has, which is hair loss on his ears, but I didn't find anything.
I had this Outpost salad for lunch and it was delicious! I want to recreate it, so I took a photo of the ingredients list too.
My boss had a cold this past week, so I gave her some cold care tea and she exchanged it for an Aveda one from her stash. Once I finish all of my tea, I want to buy some of this because I usually only have it when I go to an Aveda salon and that's not as often nowadays.
I was itching to run all week, so I put some Hothands in my huge mitten and did it. Despite getting shin splits after, it felt great! Because I recently developed Raynauds, I swear by Hothands now.
Shiva and Pema usually want to cuddle with me in the mornings. It's just like when they were tiny kittens! Shiva was purring and so happy. It's a great way to start my day.
I couldn't tell if Tanzi was happy or miserable here. I texted the photo to Craig and it made him laugh.
Speaking of Aveda, I am a Pure Privilege member and received my first free gift with points! I like massaging this into my hair or using it as a moisturizer.
I went to the Good Harvest Waukesha market winter health fair on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed my time there! I picked up an unsweetened latte to enjoy since I was so exhausted from working late the night before.
They had an amazing assortment of samples at the fair. Plus, I spoke to the Jarrow sales rep and he gave me even more! Since I've been stressed and having digestive issues in the last month and a half, I concentrated on getting things that would help those health problems.
 Love the cats resting in the sun. They get so warm!
My favorite TV show ever, CBS Sunday Morning, had the cutest story on today about Kylie and her pet duck. Craig said that she was so me and boy was he correct! I grew up with birds as pets and still love them. I totally wish I could have had a pet duck that imprinted on me. One of our cockatiels definitely did and we had a special bond too.

If you're down in the dumps like I was this weekend, watch the video. She's so darn adorable!
I'm going to end this post with a quote by actor Will Wheaton. A colleague said it to me on Friday night about a horrible situation we were in. I only wish we could have uttered the words below out loud to the person acting like a jerk towards us. This is my way of saying to my audience, think before you speak. People don't respect jerks. They make life hell. It's amazing how one person totally made my entire Friday evening awful and in turn, might have even made me sick with digestive problems this weekend. Life's too short to deal with people like that. Change must come soon. I'll end my rant there.
