Life Lately – The Trail and others

Hello and welcome to another edition of life lately from Cabin Twenty-Four! If you’re interested, I recently started a new job, which I’m enjoying more than my previous job. I started training this past week, and I did mostly treatment/wound care. All I do in my entire shift is do my rounds and make sure that all of my residents’ wounds are cleaned accordingly.

The Trail

Last Sunday, I was searching for an “adventure game” on the app store and came across The Trail. This game follows the character as he/she explores the new world. It’s pretty straightforward and I really enjoy; in fact, I got Chris on board to play it as well! Seeing all the trails on the game is making me want to go on a hike. Unfortunately, I live in California where everyday is a record-breaking 100 degrees.

Meeting Nancy & Alyse

This past week, I got to meet Nancy and Alyse; at Whole Foods’ Shuffle Bar restaurant! It was a very last minute meeting but we bonded over some cauliflower nachos, calamari & poke while we got to get to know each other more. Nancy even suggested doing this on a regular basis so when she’s finished being sick from all the sushi she ate (read about it in her latest entry)!

Food Posts

And lastly, a food section! I want to share the amazing meatless pizza I had from Blaze this past Saturday when I went with my family after church. Topped the dough with garlic pesto sauce, feta cheese, pineapples (YES PINEAPPLES BELONG ON PIZZA), mushrooms, spinach, onions, garlic, artichoke and oregano. Yummmm is right. The other photo is from Shuffle Bar.

In other news

I made the switch to from Blogger! It was very tedious but I’m glad Nancy helped me out with setting up the domain through SiteGround and what not. I’m still working on a few kinks on the layout but it looks okay now… I’ll fix it when I find more patience to do it. Ha.

Hope everyone has a good week ahead. ~~

    Congratulations on your new job! I’m glad things are working out so far and hope things will continue to look up! Considering how you love hiking, this is the perfect app for you!!!

    It was so fun to meet you and Alyse! The food was so delicious and YAS we need to meet up again! Hopefully, I won’t be OD’ing on fish that week so I can have poke with you ;).

    Blaze pizza knows how to make people happy with it being “DIY” style. OK, PIEOLOGY OR BLAZE?? I feel like I am missing out on the debate about pineapples on pizza. I mean it’s delicious, why the hate? XD.

    I’m happy you switched on to WordPress! LOVING the layout you chose.

      Thanks, Nancy! It’s the cutest little app, I swear.

      It was so great meeting you guys! And when we meet up next, we should just plan it ahead so you know not to OD on fish prior. Plus, I still owe you poke, okay!

      BLAZE ALL THE WAY! Although props to Pieology for having whole wheat dough… aside from that, they’re meh for me. I remember that was a huge debate early this year or last year, but if there’s one thing I know – pineapples belong on pizza. ALWAYS.

      Thank you! And thanks again for all the help!

    I LOVE the layout! I always hear about the benefits of switching to wordpress, but alas .. laziness.

    So cool that you got to hang out with Nancy and Alyse, it makes me really excited when I see things like that happen.

    Glad that the new job is going well! And yes, pineapples definitely do belong on pizza

      Thanks Nat! The switch has been great so far; although I do miss how much easier it was for me to play around with the CSS on Blogger. You should come to California and maybe we can all hang out?

    I saw on Alyse’s blog that you guys met up – so much fun! That pizza looks amazing as well. Sounds like a good week.

    WordPress is the best option if you want to keep moving forward!

    That food looks delicious 🙂

    Congratulations on switching to WordPress! I hope you’ve sorted out the problem with the layout; otherwise, let me know if I could be of any help, too! 🙂 A blogger friend also lives here in San Diego (although she lives further south), but I haven’t met her since she moved a year after I did. Hahaha! Maybe one of these days…

    I’m digging this layout! It’s simple, but bold, definitely something I go for. Technically, photo credit is the lady who snapped our photo hehehehe!

    I’m with you on wanting to hike, but this weather dehydrates you just walking to and from work.

    Congrats on getting a new job, I’m glad to hear that you enjoy it more than the previous one! That app looks amazing and I can imagine how much it makes you want to go hiking! It took me ages to properly move from blogger to wordpress but it was definitely worth it! xx

    That pizza looks mouth watering! I agree, pineapples on pizza are amazing!

  9. July 18, 2017 / 12:30 am

    Congrats on your new job! Blaze pizza is good! I love Pizza Rev since it’s close to our house and their thin pizza crust. I will have to try out The Trail game. Looks cool!

    That first photo with the palm trees and shadows is wonderful! // I’m glad you’re enjoying your new job more! // ahhh I love seeing all of you write about your meet up :’) // I love Hawaiian pizza // Your blog looks fantastic! Yay for switching from WordPress to Blogger 😀

    Hey Eena! Goodness, you’ve got so much going on! Congrats on the new job! I know you’ll love the new hours compared to your graveyard shifts! And congrats on switching from Blogger to WordPress. I LOVE the layout of your site, it’s so beautiful! I hope you get can used to it quick enough. It wasn’t so intuitive my first time working with WordPress but I think it’s all around a better system. So cool that you got to meet with Nancy and Alyse! They seem so awesome and I love their blogs. Btw, we have Blaze Pizza in Connecticut! Omg the one thing that overlaps among our lives, of course, it’s pizza, haha.

    Ah, I’m so happy for you that you’re enjoying your new job a lot! That work satisfaction must be amazing. That trail game sounds really interesting- I’ve never heard of anything like that. I’ve recently started playing otome games (Japanese for girl games) under my friends’ suggestions and it’s been quite entertaining and helpful when killing boredom. I’m so glad you enjoyed your day with two other bloggers as well! Congrats to the successful switch to WordPress as well! Following and excited to read more posts!

    I hear ya! WordPress can be a little tedious, but your site looks great!

    I’ve been wanting to try Blaze pizza and your pictures look so good! Congratulations on your new job!

    I love your new layout and congratulations for making the switch from Blogger to WordPress! I’ve always been with WordPress so I don’t know how difficult the proccess was but it’s a good thing that the super awesome superhero Nancy is always happy to help!

    …which brings me tooooooo…

    OMG YOU MET NANCY!?! I’m still hyping over this (I just commented on her blog post!) I’ve been reading Nancy’s blog for A LONG TIME NOW (probably since I started blogging / website designing when I was like 8?) So I’m so glad to see you all meet and bond! Like I said on Twitter, I will definitley be coming back to the US and FIND YALL and get something organised. I would love to hear all your cute ‘merican accents 😉

    The app looks so much fun – I’ll look into it! I love walking in general so it would inspire me more so xD

    so many changes around here but i’m glad your site is running well! i wanna switch to foursquare in the future but it can wait teehee. the new site is awesome anyway! i like that it’s so outdoorsy 😀 meeting other bloggers is somehow exciting yet nerve-racking. i think we share the same nervousness but it’s always amazing in the end. and girls bonding over food? nothing better than that <3

  17. July 21, 2017 / 2:08 am

    I really want to meet you guys one day! I’m so happy you guys saw each other but kind of envious because I want to be there! You and Alyse are my good friends!
