Usually Monday morning hits and I’m already ready for the weekend, but today I’m feeling ready to conquer the week. I was able to get up early, write this post, and do a short yoga flow. Helloooooo, Monday!
The jam-packed weekend began on Friday night when my husband Tony Glausi recorded a live album at the Jazz Station in downtown Eugene. It’s always my favorite thing to see him doing what he loves. He works so hard to create music that brings people together and provides joy to their lives.
The next day we woke up late and went to a late brunch at one of my favorite cafe’s in Eugene, Morning Glory. It’s very Eugene in it’s decor, atmosphere, and cuisine. It’s also a 100% vegetarian restaurant with many vegan options.
We split their cinnamon roll.
I got a tofu scramble with potatoes and cinnamon raisin bread with their morning glory blend tea on the side. So unique and so delicious! I’m obsessed with the cute teapot.
A lot of people snub their noses as soon as they hear the word vegan, but just because it’s vegan doesn’t mean it’s gross. I’m not a vegan, but I do love to eat all sorts of foods and I find vegan foods are fun to experiment with. They are perfectly delicious and unique in their own right.
Afterwards, we packed up and headed to Portland for the weekend to spend time with my in-laws. On the way we stopped at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn.
I’ve been wanting to go see the 40 acres of tulips since I moved to Oregon 5 years ago and it did not disappoint. It just so happened to be one of the 5 sunny days we’ve had in Oregon so far this year.
It was gorgeous.
The only thing that really bothered me is it seemed like the only reason many people were there was just to take pictures. Unfortunately, I am one of those people probably more often than not and I’m working on it. Pictures are a wonderful memory, but what’s the point if the moment wasn’t actually enjoyed? I tried to balance out the picture-taking by smelling the flowers and taking in the sunshine.
Easter Sunday started with church and we spent the rest of the day cooking up a feast. On the way home to Eugene we ended up getting pulled over and given a citation because our headlights just happened to stop working… That wasn’t the best, but I’m grateful we were able to get home safely.
P.S. one of my favorite bloggers – Hummusapien – posted about Care/of today, a company taking over the heath industry with a daily supplement packs that get sent right to your door. Read her post to learn more about it and get a code to receive 50% off. I ordered a months worth of supplements for $12! I’ll do a follow-up post in a month or so about my experience.
I hope you have a great week!
What was the best part of your weekend?
How do you stay present when it seems like everyone around you is distracted?
Do you get overwhelmed by supplements?
I’d love to hear from you!
