july twenty fourth

hi guys. it's one am, & i'm really trying to hold on to my sunday.
today was a fun lil day & i said i want to do what we did today every weekend.

we found a new taco place, near where we live, that was just delicious. different from other 'mexican food' places we've ever been to... the kind of taco place that doesn't have guacamole[which was disappointing at first, but then i forgot quickly, that i was missing it], but has lots of veg/vegan options. [forgot the name of the place & nate is already asleep & i don't want to wake him]
we each got two tacos (freshly handmade tortillas) & shared some beans & rice.
the beans & rice alone were full of flavor, yumz!

we then went to the beach.
the beaches here are different from california beaches.
haven't figured out what exactly makes them feel 'so' different...

it was sunny for a while, and then a dark cloud - very end of the world looking cloud- started moving towards us.
we packed up our things, and started walking just as it starting pouring.
since we were wet from swimming, we didn't mind the rain at all. 

then we went home.
made vegan bbq "chicken" & broccoli pizza.
then played music together. [getting ready for our show next weekend]
trader joe's sells whole wheat pizza dough for 99cents! & it's so delicious! the 'cheese' i used is called daiya cheese, it's the only non real cheese i like...melted
i love salad on my pizza too -- i get this broccoli slaw from trader joes, so it takes like five seconds to make a salad.
ok. i better get to sleep, i have to leave the house a little earlier than normal to get myself a coffee [b/c i'll be needing it now, ha] we're out of beanz at home.
i'll leave you with this peaceful picture nate took while me & ma boyz waz nappin'.


  1. I kind of love it when it rains at the beach. It's like you get two amazing things for one. Quite magical.

  2. When you buy the dough place it in a bowl with a little olive oil and cover it with a damp kitchen towel. It will rise a little and you will get crispy bubbles. Yum!

  3. alex, i love it when it rains on the beach too, we would have stayed a little, if we had brought our umbrella!

    monica...omg, i'm going to have to do that tonight!! bubbly pizza crust, yum! :) how long do i leave it under the towel?(i'll do 1/2 hr if i don't hear from ya, ha)

  4. Aw sleepy face with cats. so cute. but I do know why New York beaches are different than california beaches: Cali has a hot/warm/sunny/colourful feel, and NY has a grey/quiet/darker/calmness to it? that's probably a bad guess.

  5. This is such a wonderful blog post!


  6. wait.... is that a couple tattoos i spot in the last picture?

  7. Sorry I missed that comment:) so cover with the damp towel for about 2 hours and the other trick is bake it on parchment paper. Simply add a little four to the paper, shape the dough, top and put it all in the oven!

  8. I love your kittycats >.< ! (and your posts) I am following you (I come from lookbook)
