What happens when I have random pictures/things to talk about, but haven’t blogged in a week? You get random pictures tied to random things to talk about. What can I say, I’m living life. I’m also going to Disneyland with this babe in less than a week and about split my pants I’m so excited. Or maybe that’s from the cookies…but I digress.
— Anniversary Blend has officially been released at Starbucks. Fall is coming, & I am so ready.
All you haters can just stuff it because summer is done in my book, DONE! Bring on the crunchy leaves, apple pies, Halloween Joe-Joe’s, pumpkin patches, windy runs, and enough squash to fill a dump truck. Which is what I assume my backside will look like from all the Joe-Joe’s and pie I plan to consume. Winter hibernation starts now.
— Remember that summer biology class I took?
It left me with a bizarre obsession for any and all species of lichen. Now whenever I spot some on a hike I become entranced as if they have some kind of mind altering properties.
— I’m ready for fall, but still soaking up tank top hikes.
— I don’t know who Levi is, but he’s got some pretty sweet wheels. I want to go for a ride.
— I’ve been sitting on a secret for about 7 weeks now.
— I made this bread, and it basically ruined my life. So good.
I apparently didn’t have as much to share as I thought. On that note I’m off to run/eat more bread.
Q: Who wants to sit on top of a mountain eating chocolate bread and drinking Anniversary Blend with me? Bueller….Bueller…

I love fall and everything pumpkin! And nothing beats the crisp fall air when out for a run. It’s definitely my favorite season. Also, that bread looks amazing and those mountains are spectacular!
Choc PB banana bread?!?! I would eat it all. You are going to Disney— sO EXCITED for you!! Please ride as many rides as possible and eat some cotton candy for me 🙂 I read an article in a magazine about a woman who hikes… I tore it out to mail it to you- so expect something soon. Ummmmmm I SEE YOU IN LIKE ONE FLIPPING month!!!!! Is this part of that half marathon secret??? Soooo excited! I can’t wait!
YES YOU ARE PART OF MY LARGE SECRET! I have a sorta finished post about getting back into ,long running/I’m running a half/ I’m running a half BECAUSE YOU ARE COMING! I am so excited I could screaaammmm.
I actually thought of you when I bought some of the Starbucks Kona coffee in Hawaii last week. I know you are such a big coffee fan and Starbucks advocate. I was talking to the baristas at my regular stop a few days ago, and I’m going to bring it in and we’re going to have a tasting. One of them told me she had “dreamed” of tasting it. Like the white tiger or something. Mythical.
OH MY, Kona is a reserve coffee!! How fun to do a tasting with your local baristas, you will surely make their day!
Beautiful pictures. And chocolate bread? Oh my.
kathy@vodka and soda
i make a similar bread and it’s soooo goooood! have fun on your trip and be sure to blog about it when you get home because obvs we want to hear allll about it!
You know I will. I’ll also be spamming everyone on Instagram with my Mickey Mouse and Buzz Lightyear creeper photos.
Meet you at the top with a side of almond butter and spoons 😉
Ohhh man, you’re speaking my language!!
I’ll bring the PB and the J for that bread.
YESSS!!! I AM SO STOKED FOR FALL, TOO!! I’m so over the heat of the summer, bring on the pumpkins and Halloween candy! 😀
Dude that hike looks gorgeous!!!
And count me in! I’ll bring some cupcakes to accompany that bread 😉

DISNEY DISNEY! DISNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mickey better watch his ass, because I am going to go up behind him and rape it. Okay, that was a bit…. weird? LOL!
That bread! I need someone to make me some because I can’t master the science of baking.
I have to admit, I don’t hate fall but summer is my favorite. What I dislike about fall is when all the leaves are dead and it gets cold. The early part of fall when it’s still warm and the trees are gorgeous is the best.
Matt @ Runner Savvy
I ❤ fall 🙂
I just bought my first kabocha squash! Bring on the fall!
I LOVE all of your pictures, as always! That PB Banana bread looks amazing and I’m so excited for you to be going to Disney WITH GiGi. So fun! I can’t imagine what a riot Disney Land would be with the two of you.
Amy @ A Desert Girl
Levi’s wagon is a hot ride. Lichen is so weird. Weird word to say and weird looking. Oh and my little coffee fan of a husband said he likes that new SB blend. Have fun at Disneyland!
I’m so with you! Summer is over! I’m already putting cinnamon on everything, and I’m buying the first pumpkin I see. So ready 🙂
I love your random posts. They usually come with guaranteed scrumptious looking baked goods and beautiful views. 🙂
This is true!! 🙂
Heather @ HeatherRunsFast.com
Bueller, haha. I can’t wait to try the Anniversary blend! I like the half marathon surprise 🙂 Any excuse to eat more bread (or anything really) is a good excuse, whether it’s hiking or running. I wish I lived somewhere where fall actually happened, haha. It’s still in the 90s here with no sign of cooling off. wah wah. Have fun at Disney!!!
Arman @ thebigmansworld
No effing way, as if you see Gigi in Disneyland!!!!
I hope she slips salmon skin in your vegan milkless milkshake.
Yeah, we’re about to tear Disney UP!
I just puked a lot in my mouth.

How about I make that delicious bread, then on the 1 day anniversary of making that bread, eat it with the anniversary blend? 😀
Choc Chip Uru
HA, what a fantastic idea!
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
I VOLUNTEER! And please don’t yell at me, but I’ve never actually had that Anniversary Blend. I have a feeling that you’re going to tell me I need to reevaluate my priorities in life and get on that, stat. Consider it done. I just hope they got it brewing at my local Bux…
I have been waiting for fall for ages now! I can’t wait for the crisp mornings! I’m hoping to get back to North Carolina to do one last little climb before it gets too cold! And that bread from minimalist baker is the best/worst thing that’s ever happened to me. It’s crazy. xx
That bread! I want it! Seriously, is their anything better than fresh bread?
I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for that coffee blend!
Lucie Elizabeth (@CollectingLight)
I think of you every time I visit starbucks now! And that bread? Seriously, I need to buy a loaf tin and make this! I cannot wait for fall!
This makes me so very happy. I love when people think of me when they go to Starbucks, HA!
Khushboo Thadani (@KhushbooThadani)
Er helll yeah I wanna come to the top of the mountain to eat this bread & drink copious amounts of coffee with you…perfect much?? I’ve never tried the Starbucks Anniversary Blend but I hope they bring it to Mumbai :)! Can’t wait to hear about your next half marathon- are you aiming for a new PR or just going to see how it goes?
I think I’m just going to see how it goes!! I find that if I “try” for a PR I get too worked up about it and it doesn’t go well, so I will let it happen naturally! 🙂

You are so stinkin funny, you are truly one of the best blog writers out there! I love what you write, you crack me up and the photos are the bomb!
This is my favorite comment ever, I just adore you. Thank you ❤ 🙂
Davida @The Healthy Maven
me, me! Pick me!!! I’m not happy about fall but only because some of us up here have to deal with winter. You would understand my pain if you had experienced sub 40 degree weather WITHOUT the wind chill…
can i meet you in disney land? sounds like so much fun! and yayyy for living life – being too busy to be blog is kinda great, huh? 🙂
Another half marathon on the horizon? Tell me more 😀
And if you happen to make your way a tad bit north of Disneyland into the city, lmk as well 😉
Lauren @ ihadabiglunch
Halloween Joe Joes are a thing?! Oh my gosh my life just changed! I’m excited for windy runs too 🙂 nothing better than running in a light long sleeve shirt and running tights.
choose meeeeee for the mntn-coffee-choc bread adventure!! and good luck with the half training — excited to hear about this and live vicariously through you as i can’t run distances at the moment. 😦 ps the blog looks great — should enlist you to help me with mine?! 🙂
Oh thanks girl!! It was just a WordPress template and I did my own header to make it a bit different. I’m in no way a website designer despite my desire to be one! HA.
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
Oh I am SO ready for summer to be over too. Give me some crunchy leaves and warm clothes any day!
Raises hand, jumps up and down. PICK ME!! I’ll drink coffee and eat tasty bread with you 🙂
And seriously.., its freaking 80 degrees here still. I need cold weather. NOW.
YUM I want some of that bread!!
Half marathon training?! You go girl!
I will happily eat bread and drink coffee with you on top of a mountain. I will not however accept the end of summer. Fall can go suck it. At least for another couple weeks and then I will run into it’s lukewarm embrace.
Christina Does It All
YAYYYY FALL! Giddy dance goes here. I adore all of your random pictures of random life things, and I also adore you. Btw Robby and I are tentatively planning a Seattle trip in early-ish 2015, and we obviously need to hang out. I want to drink coffee and climb mountains with you.
I wish someone would tell the weather in LA that winter is over. Besides that random storm that lasted an hour yesterday its been sunny and 80 degrees. Give me fall!

I’ll have to pick some up the anniversary blend pronto!! I’m so freaking excited about fall things I’m already dressing in layers prematurely 😀 Have fun with miss gigi!!!
You’re going to Disneyland??? SO jealous!! Are you flying or driving? Because if you’re driving, (a) that’s a long drive so (b) you should totally stop by and say hi to break up the monotony of I5. 😉 HAVE FUN!!!
I flewwwww. I’m only here for a couple days otherwise I would rent myself a car to come see you!! We will be meeting soon though, don’t you worry!! 😉
GOOD!! I seriously can’t WAIT to meet you! And have an amazing time!! (Your cupcake looked insanely good. Seriously.)
Rach @ This Italian Family
Meee! Pick me! I’ll sit on the mountain top with you! Seriously your posts always inspire me to get back out there and hike even when it’s a million degrees here, haha! Thankfully we have some 70s headed my way later this week (today is mid-90s) so I’m excited about that. I will miss summer, but I fall has its own magic too. 🙂
di @ life of di.
I absolutely LOVE the Anniversary Blend at Starbucks 🙂 Definitely my favorite. I’d love to sit down and enjoy some of my front porch with some of that bread. Nomnomnom. Also – I’m quite jealous of your trip to Disneyland! So fun!
Food, Booze, & Baggage
The bread sounds tasty!!! I’m not against Fall per say but Fall means Winter and well I’m not down with that 🙂 Great view in your “awkward picture”!
Random posts are the best! I would love to go hiking and eat bread and drink Anniversary Blend! It’s sooo good! My husband and I drink it every morning now 🙂
yay for half marathons and fall!
