Thursday I am headed to St. Paul for the Visa Championships and I am all sorts of fired up. The drama. The pressure. The glitter.
While this is all so American, it's pretty universal in the sport of gymnastics. This new UK documentary, "Gymnast" highlights all the mental and physical toughness needed to succeed in the sport. It's legit, and definitely worth watching, psycho gym fan or not.
I got to take a trip to Austin last week to visit Katie and Mick and meet their adorable, perfect daughter, Gemma. She is just that, a dazzling gem, with the sweetest, most precious face. Katie was a pregnancy goddess, looking amazing the entire time, and rounding out the title with a post-preggo slamming body and motherly glow. Looking good, girls!
The best part about meeting the little GAL (her initials...awesome) was having another lady friend around us as we chatted, gossiped, and watched intellectual TV shows like Toddlers and Tiaras, Pretty Wild, and Dance Moms. Our duo became a trio.
Can't wait to dance and make all sorts of arts and crafts with my new little bestie.
One of my favorite AAAD Readers, Brad, shared his thoughts on hummus in response to this post. Must share with you all, as these sound like vegan insider awesome finds:
"I see that you like Sabra. I would like to expand your horizons. Trust me. I am a vegan. Hummus is my entertainment and religion.
These guys make a hummus called Grandma’s Hummus. I think I’ve seen it at Whole Foods. Maybe Central Market. I need to verify this before sending you off in search. They’re based in Austin, and it’s the best “straight up” version I’ve had. Their babaganoush is awesome too. (Blogger's note: special points for describing their hummus as "humus.")
This is so good if you like cilantro. I need to try their other flavors, but this one gets me every time.
The Spicy Three Pepper is my everyday go to. It’s not spicy for normal people from Texas (nothing that’s labeled “spicy” ever is). It has bell pepper in it, so if you have a friend who is allergic to bell peppers (read: Andria), then you will want to inform her before she eats half of the bowl with you.
As for awesome restaurant hummus, if you’ve never been to Fadi’s, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
Thanks, Brad, for the hummus opinions. Now I need to go get some baby carrots and dig the eff in.
