Winter Vacation in San Diego

Here I go again: going not days but weeks without blogging.  I promise to get into a routine again soon.  I am still using the excuse that I have been incredibly busy at work and also traveling again.  And… So on that note, I recently spent a long weekend in San Diego with my high… Continue reading Winter Vacation in San Diego

Skiing and Sundance Film Festival

So I blame my lack of posting lately on the combination of a week-long vacation to Utah and an incredibly busy period at work that were both sandwiched by two nasty colds.  And because much of my time recently has been spent at work (which is not great material for a blog post), today I… Continue reading Skiing and Sundance Film Festival

Holiday eCard, Peppermint Oreo Recipe + Festive Decor

Wishing you all a very merry & happy holiday season… Sumo was a trooper when we suited her up in holiday gear with a reindeer hat and Christmas scarf.   She may look annoyed, but I’m pretty sure she was enjoying her costume.

9.10.12 (one-year anniversary)

There are so many ways that we measure a year, the most obvious being New Years, the most boring being a fiscal year, and then there are the celebrations, birthdays and anniversaries. Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. And to finish off our first year as a married couple, on… Continue reading 9.10.12 (one-year anniversary)

Weekend Recap…

It was a sunny and crisp weekend and we spent a lot of time outdoors on walks with Sumo.  Sumo had a lot of energy this weekend, and my husband and her played sticks and she mistook his arm for the stick…oops! But they both recovered and we kept walking to admire some wildlife, including… Continue reading Weekend Recap…

The Cabin

Growing up my family would go to my grandparents cabin in the summer, to what we would call “Up North.” I haven’t been up north in about two years, but we are trying to plan a big family trip there sometime this summer.  Here is a little sneak peek of my last trip there… We… Continue reading The Cabin

Weekend recap…

After a long and nice weekend, I was able to wake up early this morning to workout, have coffee and relax and have a nice breakfast.  But now, it is back to reality and beginning a long week of work (12 straight days of work because I have meetings this weekend).  I thought I would… Continue reading Weekend recap…
