Happy Belated Easter! I hosted my first Easter brunch on Sunday and had the best time (and ate like an extreme carnivore). Although hosting can be stressful, I love having people over for potlucks and dinners. What better combination than delicious food and great company?
I have some exciting news! As of last week, I am a new member of the Austin Food Blogger's Alliance and I couldn't be more excited! They accepted my application and I am already amazed with the opportunities it has presented. Coming up, there is a Google+ workshop and a welcome dinner— I can't wait to learn more and also meet some of the members.
Through AFBA (Austin Food Blogger's Alliance) and Twitter, I have linked up with many Austin bloggers. I have discovered amazing recipes and local eateries— my 'To Eat' and 'To Cook" lists are growing too fast! But I love it; there is something about reading from bloggers that live in your town. When I read from Austin bloggers, I can connect with them by the places they mention. I can visualize myself at the restaurant they went to, that food truck that I pass on the way the work, or the park that I also play sports at.

|Black Swan Yoga, Austin, TX|
I have recently started getting into yoga and I am falling in love with it. I used think yoga was easy- all about breathing and stretching, and not a workout at all.

Quick post for my quick and favorite breakfast!
Egg white and spinach omelet with the Seedsation Bread from Central Market. Any Austinites reading… you MUST try this bread. It is phenomenal; made with whole wheat and many types of seeds. It sells for $3.99 for the whole loaf, or you can ask them to slice a half loaf for $2.00. It's perfect so it doesn't mold and go to waste.
Happy New Year!!! I am a little sad to see 2012 go– I can firmly say that 2012 was quite the year. I passed all my CPA exams, picked up yoga, went to Spain, had an incredible summer in Southern California, finally visited two of my best friends in Chicago, moved to Austin, went to Hawaii with my family, finally bought a bike, played intramural sports, and sealed it off with a cozy holiday at home and a fun New Year's Eve. This year I got to spend time with people I care about and also met a lot of great people. I can't wait to see what 2013 brings.

I haven't decided what my New Year's resolutions are going to be. I've been brainstorming, but I need to make them concrete. I will get back with those. For y'all with healthy resolutions… sorry, this doesn't help, but I've got a delicious bread pudding recipe 🙂
