And so it goes...

Recent West coast transplant just settling back into the Midwest. Mama, yogi, music-loving, project manager. Welcome to my little nook.

I don’t watch enough TV

Any amazing shows I need to start watching?

I have some (lots) of time on my hands and need mindless occupation of my never shutting down brain. Help.

Just caught up on Orange, House of Cards, Sons and already watch all the gloriousness of trashy TV on Bravo.



Yes. Considering that I’m on the precipice of change, yes.

It’s Friday at 8:29. How absolutely pathetic would it be if I got into bed now?

Since last Sunday, I have been beat the hell up, emotionally. It hits even harder when it’s by a person that you trusted and respected implicitly. Then to find out they don’t in fact have your back? It’s heartbreaking. Particularly when struggling through another huge loss.

So bed calls. Hoping that sleep and quiet eventually take over and a few hours of sleep will offer a new clarity. That I’ll be brave enough to move on and let people closer. Hard to trust when judgement is the new trend.

No caption necessary.


Mom’s of tots, please help me. My brain is fried and I have 3 days to get this done. Having pizza party with family and few friends planned for Saturday afternoon. Indoors, cause it’s Michigan and weather sucks. What apps am I serving these people??

This little nugget of love makes each and every day an adventure! So lucky to wake up to the grin:)

Food for the week:
Sunday: pork loin w minted peas and bacon wrapped water chestnuts

Tuesday: fish sandwiches w rosemary fries
Wednesday: corn chowder w na’an
Thursday: chicken adobo w gyoza
Friday: teriyaki veggie rice bowls
Saturday: P’s third bday/party.

How do I have a three year old!?

Happy drinko (I mean cinco) de mayo.
Back on track…
Ridiculously easy and yummy.  Spicy chorizo, onions, corn, black beans, heirloom tomatoes, habanero cheddar and goat cheese with day old tortilla. Baked for 45 minutes. Topped with fresh avocado, cilantro and lime.

Is there anything wrong with Pinot noir and pistachio gelato for dinner?
