I finally learned how to design repeat patterns, and I’m hooked!
I’ve been on vacation for the past 5 days: Park City, UT and Boulder / Denver / Broomfield, CO. My flight was delayed 2 hours last nigh. I got home at 2 AM. So, today’s post is brought to you by the letter “R“. As in I need to relax. Reboot. Rest. Read (everybody’s … […]
Tomorrow morning at 4 AM my friend Alex will be picking me up (or maybe I’ll be stopping by her place — we need to pow wow yet) to drive to Des Moines to get on a plane going to Utah for Blend Retreat. In case you missed all my recaps of last year’s retreat, […]
What’s more marvelous than spending time with a new friend? Watching an old friend perform in a touring off-broadway musical comprised of rockin’ cheesy 80s hits. I bought tickets for Rock of Ages a few months back when I realized a good friend of mine from high school was touring with the show as Dennis Dupree. […]
For those of you excited about my participation in the Scintilla Project, just know that I’m still planning on finishing it, though it’s officially over, but I’ve been crazy busy. So instead, I’ve got this love story about two cats that I wrote in 4th grade, which was in 1993. I think that makes this story an antique. Or at least vintage.
Today is one of my favorite days of the month in blog-land. Foodie Pen Pal reveal day! I was paired with Kendra from Biting the Hand That Feeds You. Kendra sent me a box full of fun snacky goodies. I think my favorite thing was the biscoff cookie. I’ve never had one before! I’m saving […]
I am going to start a “pinboard of the week” series to highlight my pinterest boards since I have so many of them, and I would like to find a way to revisit some of them that I don’t use often. But first, I’d like to address a little problem I’ve been having with Pinterest […]
I loved the “currently” survey I did in January so much that I decided to do it again. The idea came from my friend Lauren, who got the idea from her friend Jenny who does one of these each month. Current books: The Night Circus is really good, but I haven’t been into reading in the last week or so, which […]
I had a really great Sweet Tunes Thursday post scheduled for today about all the records that Mark and I bought this month (it’s a lot!), but I realized it’s Valentine’s Day today (and for those of you who care, that record post is happening next week — PROMISE). For the first time in years, […]
It’s the most magical time of the year. Well, almost. I got my ticket to Blend Retreat — May 17-19, 2013 in Park City, UT. What’s Blend Retreat? If you’ve not been reading my blog, then you might not know (and hello!). It’s a fun-jam-packed weekend of camaraderie with other bloggers that’s sponsored by food and […]
I was going to write you a post about what to do when you can’t exercise, since I’m currently taking a mini-break, but I got busy cleaning my craft room (which led me to another post that I’ll have this week), and before I knew it, 5 hours went by! Whoops. I have a clean […]
I keep mentioning that I’m going to bring you an Intuitive Eating read-a-long. Instead, in the spirit of simplifying life in 2013, I’ll be recapping main points of the book along with my thoughts when I’ve finally finished it. However, Emily is doing a great group read right now, so if you’re interested, catch up […]
