A day in the life.

I thought it was time to share another ‘day in the life’ style post.  I get tired of recipe post after recipe post.  The best blogging advice I’ve been given is to: write the blog you’d want to read.  And since I like seeing a glimpse of other people’s lives…I hope you do to.

So this was yesterday for me.  

The day started with a flow yoga class at YogaOne.

Right after that I showered and headed to Tout Suite for a breakfast date with my friend, Morgan.

If you ever visit Houston, Tout Suite is a fun place to stop by and grab a coffee and breakfast.  I feel a bit meh about their lunch and dinner options, but their breakfast tacos are legit.  An added bonus is the atmosphere outside and inside Tout Suite is just dreamy.

For breakfast I went with an egg, cheese & bacon breakfast taco + iced latte.

And for the close up view…

That bacon is something to write home about.  The entire thing is perfectly crispy/beef jerky-y.

AND the flour tortilla is doughier than it looks.  I’m a fan.

After breakfast we hung out and talked more than we got work done.  Totally worth it.  Morgan had to leave around 10, but I stayed and worked on replying to emails and finished an upcoming recipe post.  COOKIES.

Then I planned out the recipes I’m making tomorrow.  

My plan is to go grocery shopping in the morning and then spend the day at my parent’s cooking, recipe testing and photographing.

Around noon I headed out.  The weather was gorgeous and there were construction workers at my house working on the kitchen, so I decided to enjoy my lunch outside somewhere instead of going home and interrupting their workflow.  

I headed to the med center area and ended up parking at the Houston Zoo and walking over to a nearby outdoor theatre, Miller Outdoor Theater.

The theatre is placed on a giant hill (‘giant’ is relative to the other hills in Houston…aka the non existent hills). Any who.  There is a ton to green space to sprawl out on.  In elementary school I remember going there and rolling down the hill.  I hadn’t been there in ages and it was so nice.

I found a shady tree…

…and unpacked the lunch I had made before I left the house in the morning.

For lunch, I ate leftover chicken & veggie stir-fry + an orange + milk & dark chocolate covered almonds.  I saved the rest of the snacks for later that afternoon.

Then I laid in the grass and listened to a podcast for an hour.  

It was the best.

And then…it was time to head to the office for private practice work.  When I got there the eating disorder P.A. who we office with was like, “what have you been doing? you have grass in your hair?”  Then she helped me look a bit more presentable.  

On Thursdays I see eating disorder/disordered eating clients from 3pm – 9ish.  Last night I had 6 clients.  I’ve decided over the past year that 5 clients/day is my happy number.  I try my very best to cap my clients/day to 6 people max.  After 6 people my words don’t work anymore lol.  I like hit this wall and I can’t form words.  My brain is just like, “and…we’re done.”

One of our offices…

After I finished up with clients, I headed home and walked into this…

THE WALLS ARE GONE! And beams are in.  I’m already so so happy with how open everything is.

Andrew had made us dinner.  Frozen pizza + kale salad.

I ate, it was pretty late so he had already eaten.  Then we hung out for an hour or so before I opened up my computer to write this post.

Before bed I enjoyed a mug of hot chocolate.  Then sleep.

That was my day!

What is everyone up to this weekend? On our agenda we have light fixture shopping and a dinner double date. Happy weekend!


  1. Stumbled across your blog and love it! Especially since I am a fellow Houstonian. Just started listening to podcast…. recommendations? 

    • Yay Houston!:) podcast recs = The Lively Show (for life in general), Food Psych & Mind Body Musings (for body image, intuitive eating). THOSE ARE MY FAVS!!

  2. Love day in the life posts! They are a fun way to break up a recipe routine. I am digging that breakfast spot….those tacos look amazing!

  3. I love these posts! I am sometimes overwhelmed with how many food posts I need to catch up with on my favorite sites, and its so nice to feel like I can just “catch up” with you virtually and not worry about cooking for a minute. 

  4. I love these posts! I need to start listening to podcasts. Every loves them!

  5. “Day in life” is my favorite post. And cookies recipes :D I don`t have plan for the weekend yet, but I think about relaxing one. Just reading and watching film may be.

  6. Another vote for Day-in-the-Life posts! I love your grassy picture. As a complete stranger, it feels weird to say, but I must, you’re so beautiful in this grassy picture! I am greatful to have stumbled into your blog as I love your approach to food :) I am a therapist and am hoping to return to working with clients who have eating disorders after I finish my degree (June!). Different work, same population! I also completely understand not being able to form sentences, let alone words, after a certain number of clients!

  7. I love seeing little glimpses into peoples lives too. It always sounds freaky but its so cool that I get to see what someone across the world does on an average day :)
