Are you ready for Christmas? I think I am… maybe. Miko is with his new reindeer toy. Stuffing started coming out of his last toy and this little guy is heartbroken if he doesn’t have a favorite small toy to play with. So I caved and gave him one of his Christmas gifts early and […]

It has been a crazy week at work with co-workers taking days off for Thanksgiving, on baby leave, and calling in sick. Non-stop stress and running around with too much multitasking makes work days a blur and my brain feeling mushy at the end of the day. But I’m in a great mood because I’m […]

Happy Halloween! I’m typing this between running trips to the front door to hand out candy and we’re getting a lot of trick-or-treaters! Hubby did an awesome job on our jack-o-lantern. And we’ve got three pouting dogs in the backyard. Skipper has a hugely loud and booming bark that rattles us every time the doorbell […]

It’s been a relaxing weekend so far here with a little lap cuddle time while I catch up on Breaking Bad. A huge kale salad from Whole Foods with home made smokey avocado rosemary dressing. Stepping out to see Captain Phillips. And what a great movie. I was hesitant to see it because the trailers […]

Monday again – arg! That’s okay, I’m relaxed after a nice weekend and a fast 3.2 mile treadmill run at the gym after work since it’s actually raining too hard today to run outside. Saturday we had a pleasant family BBQ at my sister’s house for visiting family and, as usual, my dinner plate was […]

I can’t complain about this work week, it’s been much better than last week being shorter and not on call. But still happy tomorrow is Friday and I decided to celebrate early with hubby by stepping out to Baagan for lunch for this week’s salad trio – a unique shaved brussels sprouts, apple, and mustard […]
