I Just Wanna…

May 15, 2013

Chat! …About almond milk Frappuccinos. And muffins. And other miscellaneous things. But we’ll get to those in a sec. Happy Wednesday! How are ya doing? I’m feeling a bit…frazzled. The combination of work deadlines, loooong hours of NASM studying, and excitement about the upcoming weekend ahead (Blend Retreat in Park City!), means my ADD is buzzing today. So, […]

The Man at Mother’s Day Brunch

May 13, 2013

Aaaaaaaand it’s Monday! I hope your weekend was relaxing, revitalizing, jam-packed, smile-inducing—or whatever you hoped it would be. The highlight of mine was celebrating Mother’s Day over a delicious brunch with my mom and her boyfriend’s family yesterday. The mimosas flowed; we had unlimited access to perfectly-crisp bacon; custom-order omelets were a-plenty; and there were […]

Look what opened yesterday! The Sno Cone Shack is back! I used to love eating sno scones when I was little—not so much for the taste (c’mon now,  ice cream is my true cold treat love), but for the COLOR. You know—those blindingly bright artificially-flavored syrups that are poured on top of the “sno?” I’d […]

WIAW: My Favorite Food Day in the Bay {Sushiritto and Roam Burger}

May 7, 2013

Haaaaaappy Wednesday! How’s your week going? I’m back in Boise, slowly recovering from a major San Francisco-induced food coma. 😉 When I was in New York last fall, I told you that vanilla bean ice cream was my favorite food in the entire world (narrowly edging out peanut butter—if you can imagine that!). Today, however, […]

Weekend by Numbers {4.29.13}

April 29, 2013

Two—slices of cinnamon toast devoured Sunday morning. I’m dealing with a severe cinnamon toast obsession right now. You know… buttered toast sprinkled with cinnamon sugar? It tastes like my childhood. Circa 1991. p.s. I’m also newly obsessed with this bread. Eighty—the decade that inspired these. I’m not really sure what makes them 80’s glam, but considering I’m a […]

Happy Friday! Rrrrrraise your hand if you’re ready for the weekend! Rrrrrraise your other hand if you don’t feel like making dinner tonight! I certainly don’t. And I won’t because I’ll be devouring chips instead. Not those chips. But I’ll get to them in a sec. The last thing I want to do on a Friday evening is […]

Totally Unnecessary {Wish List}

April 24, 2013

If I could live anywhere…. I’d live in a place where handsome baristas dote on me daily… where afternoon cappuccinos are free…. and where the almond milk-to-coffee-to-foam ratio on said free cappuccinos is perfect. (Read: half foam, half coffee/milk). Ahh, yes, that would be blissful. Well, let me let you in on a little secret. That’s […]
