  1. I am having a hard time picking a hotel! Every time I look online I find a better place, but I think I found the perfect spot now. 1/2 mile from the Space Needle and an indoor pool. Plus, for some reason a king suite is the same price as a queen room, so I'm going all out. Anyway, I hope I can meet some of the locals while I'm there?!
  2. So could I! I have three. They are all some kind of pit bull mix, but each one is different. Nope, they are not vegan.
  3. Cute!!! I loooove dogs.
  4. My friend from GA came into town last week and we took a long weekend trip to Kripalu (http://www.kripalu.org/) for a weekend workshop with Manju Jois (http://www.manjujois.com/) in ashtanga yoga. On the way up we stopped at the Vegan Treats Bakery (http://www.vegantreats.com/). On Monday we went to NYC for yoga with Dharma Mittra (http://www.dharmayogacenter.com/intro.php) and food at Red Bamboo (http://www.redbamboo-nyc.com/). Tuesday we had lunch at Govinda's in Philly (http://www.govindasvegetarian.com/) before she left. It was an AWESOME weekend.

  5. Okay, I booked my flight! I will get there around 6pm on Friday, Sept 28 and leave early-ish on Monday, Oct 1! I am going to stay in a hotel with an indoor pool, so I hope if we can meetup, everyone will come over for a pool party!
  6. Thanks everyone! I am still trying to sort out the details of my possible trip, but I appreciate all of the help!!! I hope if I make it out that we can all meet up!
  7. Thanks everyone!!! I do not think I will make it to Portland this trip. I'm keeping it pretty short, Thursday night-Tuesday evening. I'm expecting to like the NW a lot, though, so I'm sure I'll be back again. I would LOVE to meet up while I'm there. I will be busy during the days with yoga workshops, but around with nothing to do and not much idea where anything is the rest of the time.
  8. I am thinking about heading out there at the end of September. I have this flight with Southwest that I need to use by the end of the year and there is a yoga workshop that I think I'll attend for a long weekend. The workshop is located on Mercer Island and I found a hotel about a half mile away so that I can walk every morning, but what about getting everywhere else? Is the public transportation pretty good? I've also thought about renting a bike for the days that I'm there so that I can get around. I will be travelling/staying alone, so it will be a pretty mellow trip, but I've never been to Seattle and I want to see (and eat!) as much as possible while I'm there! Any tips would be greatly appreciated!! I couldn't figure out from a google search what the best way to figure out public transit is. Is it all busses??

  10. I think venus fly traps are so cool. Yours looks so happy!
  11. I don't have any good suggestions. My shoes are either canvas slip ons or my one pair of thick canvas adidas (the "three stripe" style that is usually leather - black with white stripes and a white shell toe) that I happened to find in the men's section while my husband was looking for shoes. I love them. Good luck! Maybe you could go to one of those running stores where they help fit you for a proper shoe?? I know a lot of New Balances are vegan-friendly.
  12. Thank you!!! It's my dog Cornholio's paw print. He passed away a little over a year ago. He was my first dog and I totally loved that little guy. I got the tattoo a few weeks after he passed. My next tattoo will be on my other inner arm as a tribute to my brown pitbull mixes (I currently have three). http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/mules/dogsout14.jpg
  13. I was wearing it today and decided to snap some pictures! Cameo appearances made by two of my dogs! http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/nicmaiz2.jpg http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/nicmaiz3.jpg http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/nicprob1.jpg http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/nicVFT1.jpg http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/nicVFT2.jpg http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/nicVFT3.jpg http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/nicVFT4.jpg
  14. Cool pictures! I really like that waterfall!
  15. You look great! I like your suit!
  16. Owwwww... Those look like the kind of injuries that only a container of sweet sweet Soy Delicious can fix. Heal up quickly!
  17. I was weeding the front flowerbeds this week and I got a TON of mostquito bites on my legs. Probably 20-30. On top of them itching like crazy, now some of them have BRUISED. http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/mosquitobruise.jpg A mosquito bruised me!!!!
  18. I don't think I've been to the Chicago Soul Veg, just the one in DC. At one time, there was a break-away vegan soul food BUFFET in Chicago that I did eat at and it was AMAZING. I've had cake from Blind Faith, but not eaten there. I've been to a few other places in Chicago, too. I LOVE it there. Chicago has great food.
  19. Great pictures!!! I really want to move to Chicago in a few years (or sooner!). I had the bbq bacon cheeseburger at the Chicago Diner about a month ago. It was one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted! http://www.ilikeitsalty.com/storage/nicole/chi08.jpg
  20. Let me know the date! I'm around.
  21. Lookin' good! You sure are keeping busy!!!
  22. That's awesome! We went on a lot of bike rides when I was a kid... me, my mom, and my sister.
  23. Oh it's okay! My "main" teaching gig now is at a studio where both the students and the other employees are awesome! I liked the gym, but things happen as they're supposed to, I guess.
