Birthday Eats


Getting back into the grind on a Monday is tough after such a fun weekend! Sigh. But I’m also glad to be back to normal, healthy eating after a lot of decadent eating. All this weekend we celebrated a big birthday for hubby starting with a movie and nice dinner out Friday. Saturday we headed […]

New Mushroom & Birthday Fun


Happy Saturday! We’ve been in celebration mode for hubby’s birthday this weekend, so this will be a random, all-over-the-place post. I took yesterday off work to make it a 3 day weekend of fun and relaxation and had a nice workout in our home gym while Skipper snoozed on his favorite pillow bed. Shhhh, don’t […]

Skipper is enjoying exploring all of our new weeds I need to do something about. And kale is flourishing in our backyard after so much rain, […]

Happy Sunday, gah, it’s Sunday already?! And we lost an hour with spring forward – dirty trick! It was nice to disconnect a little bit after such a busy week at work and chill a little at home with these sweet office buddies. And catch up on house work and errands such as finally getting […]
