Happy Things

A couple of weekends ago I ran into a couple of guys from Charleston (in Boston!) and they all had sun burns. Here I am still pasty white and when I saw them I almost cried. Ok, maybe it was the beers I had shortly before the run in, but I did miss Charleston’s weather for a second. The heat waves have not started here yet (will they ever?), so I’m having to enjoy the little things that remind me of summer. Like lobster rolls.

That lobster roll is from Kimball Farm where I grew up eating gigantic ice cream cones and had many birthday parties with friends. I like their lobster rolls because they’re filled with a ton of meat (both crab and claw) and have very little mayo and just a bit of celery and seasonings. Trust me when I say I will try all the fancier lobster rolls this summer.

One of my work events last weekend was Fenwayoga, put on by the Red Sox Foundation. Participants came for yoga and meditation along the warning track at Fenway Park. I was in the expo area but managed to sneak out onto the field to watch the yogis for a bit. Seeing the park on a gorgeous day was a sight!

The fashion in Boston is quite different than in Charleston and, at times, I feel like I’m dressed like a rainbow compared to people I pass on the streets. Oh well. I love my neons and I’m not letting them go! Yesterday I got the new Angel by Victoria’s Secret Sports Bra in an Influenster Voxbox.victoria's secret angel sports bra influenster voxbox

This brassiere is soooooo comfortable and comes in some really fun shades. It’s got a good amount of padding, a gentle underwire, and nice stretchy straps. I love it! And so does my idol, Doutzen Kroes. 😉 You can buy it online here — on sale for $29.99!

Along with sprucing up my summer wardrobe, I’m also adding lots of summer veggies to my meals. The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is a great cookbook for those interested in learning how to cook creative, healthy meals out of vegetables. It features over 1600 recipes! That’s a vegetarian’s bible if you ask me.

Have a good one, friends!

    Oh my goodness, that lobster roll sounds phenomenal. Sounds like exactly the way I’d eat it too! Very little mayo and celery with MOSTLY meat. Yummy. And I’ve been dying to get my hands on a VS bra! Very jealous you got one from the influenster box. I gotta get one sometime….You have a good one as well!

        I meant to say “get my hands on a VS sport’s bra”. Once they came out with them, I’ve been envious and wanting to try one out. Or all of them… Yes! I saw that their sale is going on right now! Don’t remind me, my wallet doesn’t need to suffer that much at the moment. Ha!

    I tried on some VS sports bras before and they were comfy, but the straps were always too long (and not adjustable!). Are the straps on that one adjustable?

    • http://www.hungrymeetshealthy.com/ Christina

      it does not…i know, i have trouble with that too.

  • Nikki @ The Pink Growl

    I had to come see the brassiere comment 🙂 and hold up you got that in a voxbox??? WTF? I want one!!!

    It’s incredibly hot and humid down here in Charleston. Yesterday tied a bunch of records for heat index. Craziness. I’m sure those guys were sunburnt though, it’s been pretty warm here for awhile and I was out yesterday at the pool, couldn’t stay too long so I didn’t burn.

    It’s so cool that they had a yoga event at the baseball park. I went to one of those once down here in Chas. Would be a fun place to do yoga. That lobster roll looks pretty tasty!

    • http://www.hungrymeetshealthy.com/ Christina

      ew i don’t miss the humidity!! stay cool my friend!

  • Pamela

    How fun does that yoga at Fenway sound?! Totally jealous! And I love the color of the VS sports bra! I love getting fun colored sports bras! It makes working out that much better!

    <3, Pamela

  • Biana Perez

    I’m so jealous of the influenster box that you got – I mean I got a razor and you get a sports bra and water bottle?! I’m still so happy that I got to see you on Sunday 🙂 Don’t worry the heat waves will start here and when you don’t have central air to make you all cool – don’t complain haha!

    • http://www.hungrymeetshealthy.com/ Christina

      you know i put that razor to good use. i should probably write to venus and tell them hahahah. yesss so glad we met and now we definitely have to meet up for drinks!

    totally hear you on the bright color thing — even though i grew up in NY, i’m so not NYC black and gray fashion girl, and yesterday at work i had on a bright yellow shift dress and one of the women goes, “I love this — you’re so un-NY!” gotta rock those brights. 🙂

  • Mia- MakeMeUpMia

    The yoga in Fenway park would be amazing! What a great Influenster box 🙂

  • http://meetatthebarre.blogspot.com/ Amanda Elizabeth

    Ohhhh that bra is on sale??? I have been eyeing that in the stores. I can’t even imagine trying to rock all that southern flair up in Boston…..it’s like one shade up there….all black hahahahah. That yoga in Fenway sounds so amazing I totally wish!
