That would be “Oats in a Peach Jam Jar” but it kind of looks like some kind of confusing chemistry formula… I never was good at science.

I am, however, good at fitting fluffy Scottish oats into tiny jars like such

When I look at this picture I hear a chorus of angels saying “ahhhhh!” ha ha

This was such a good way to start a Friday morning, EXCEPT that it was the sad end of my Justin’s Chocolate Hazlenut butter.  Must get more ASAP!

I took my chances on finding something for lunch on campus and came across a salad bar with organic greens and grilled tofu, yes please!

Did I mention I’m taking a class called Religion and Dance?  Well I am and was all too excited to find out that instead of being subjected to lecture 3x a week, we’re subjected 2x a week and the third day involves actual dancing.  BINGO!  These are the kinds of classes senior year should involve 🙂

So after lunch I trudged on over to the Carlson Gym and participated in some Rueda de Casino, which goes a little something like this.

In all reality, my class looked nothing like those pros but I had fun anyways!

Packet pick up for TODAYS 5K race was at a store in Denver, as was last nights Rockies game (obviously) so we decided to head out early so we could grab dinner in between pick up and the game.  Depsite being a Colorado native I know close to nothing about the Denver area therefore I trusted Ashley and went to her favorite Denver restaurant, Vine Street Pub.

It was nothing short of FANTASTIC and it all started with a coupe of beers

I meant to order the 8 oz. but forgot and ended up with a 16 oz. oops!  I’m not much of a beer drinker so Joey finished mine.  I was more into my meal anyways.

Tempeh Reuben = beer baked tempeh, sauerkraut, vegan 1000 Island Dressing, tomato, swiss cheese.  It also came with the pub’s famous fries.  Apologies for the amount of blur, apparently I could not hold still!

My hands were covered in dressing, tempeh pieces were on my dress, my face was most likely a mess but I didn’t care one bit.  When food is this good you forget your manners and just DIG IN.  Joey was real jealous of my meal 😛

Vine Street = A+ in my book!

Did I mention I love the Farmer’s Market?

Couldn’t resist these cuties

No, the Farmers’ Market does NOT get old.  Ever. Oh, and I got to restock on peach jam and apple buttah.

How often do you find yourself at the FM?

I’m off to my race, wish us girls luck in beating the guys 🙂

    Lol….I am the same way about the Denver area. I’ve lived in Colorado my whole life, but the Denver area is such a mystery to me. I’m hoping that I’ll get a chance to get to know it better this year since Boulder is waaaay closer to Denver than the Springs. But we’ll see…lol. Also, Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter is pretty much the most amazing thing ever. It’s always sad when the jar comes to an end.
