This Weekend, In Pictures

This past weekend, I slowed down. Finally. I'm not very good at relaxing, or not making plans, but with all the traveling I've been doing lately, as well as the trip I'm about to embark upon, I decided to just go with the flow this weekend. And it felt spectacular. 

We stayed in San Francisco and enjoyed the long weekend in our lovely city. And of course, on the evening of the fourth it was cold, windy, and uber foggy, just how San Francisco does Summer. But I'm not complaining. While my boyfriend, who has been traveling and working like crazy, caught up on sleep (he slept for 13 joke, I poked him every hour to make sure he was breathing), I curled up on our couch and may or may not have watched the Veronica Mars movie while I heard the pops and cracks of the fireworks with the sliding glass door open. I couldn't see a thing through the marshmallow fog, but you bet I could hear the festivities.

I think I realized that when we finally do allow ourselves to slow down and not make plans ahead of time, the experiences that result from being spontaneous are really quite enjoyable. 

And oh the irony, I'm off for yet another trip for the next two weeks. 

I hope you had a lovely weekend, too.

Berry Smoothie - have you tried it yet? Mustache glass optional, but recommended

Really darn good peanut butter chocolate chip gluten-free cookies - recipe on the blog soon!

I cleaned my closet out and sent my clothes to ThredUp, an online consignment shop. Easiest thing ever/I wish I thought of this business idea:

If you are looking for natural skin-care products, try 100% Pure. I die for their white green tea moisturizer. 

Fresh salsa sampler at Tacolicious

Carnitas and short rib tacos shared with really good people at Tacolicious - #passionateaboutpork

Love of my life - 'Merica. They really do grow them well in the Midwest...


  1. Sounds like a lovely weekend! And I DIE for those carnitas tacos at Tacolicious. We just went grocery shopping and they're currently all I want for lunch right now. Darnit.

    1. I know...I hate to admit that I love the Marina Girl Salad, too...
