This morning I created the perfect runner’s recovery drink as part of breakfast! I’m super exited because it was delicious too! Recipe coming soon.
After breakfast I headed to the Solar Decathlon at the Great Park in Irvine. I heard about it on the news Friday morning and since the GP is so close I wanted to check it out.
The orange balloon is a signature of Irvine and it’s outfitted for Halloween right now!
20 collegiate teams from around the world were challenged to design and build solar houses. It’s super interesting since they are all different, yet very similar in size and use of resources. Admission is free, parking was $5.00.
I packed my lunch…
But, was tempted by the ice cream vendor. Hey, it was over 90 degrees out there!
Who am I kidding, I would have bought an ice cream if it was 9 degrees. Wait. Who am I really kidding that I would be somewhere that is 9 degrees. F that.
Okay, back to the buns.
Yesterday I tried my new-to-me bun tool and LOVE it! A lot of you asked if it was ‘Hot Buns’. I actually had never heard of that until it was mentioned and had to look it up. I guess it’s on a commercial that I’ve never seen? (Must not advertise during Real Housewives, which I find odd.)
Anyway. I bought the Bella Bun tool from Marshall’s for $5.99. It’s the Large Light color.
I loved it because it’s super easy to use and stayed up for hours. I have a lot of hair and it’s hard to keep an ‘up-do’ without a ton of bobby pins. This stayed up with 0 pins! You do have to pin fly-away parts if they come out, but I didn’t have any yesterday.
I cannot find the Belle Buns info online but you can get the Hot Buns on Amazon for $7.00. The dress is from Target, but a while back so it’s not online anymore. Here is a similar dress by Madison Marcus that’s $86.00 but it’s cuter.
The moral of the story is: I am too busy looking at food on Pinterest that I only know ‘hot cross buns’ and not ‘Hot Buns’ because all my boards are about food. And one is about running. The end.
