Distraction – Wedding Venue Site Visit

I have days were I feel so distracted that I literally have to take it minute by minute. Today I set an alarm for an hour to do ONE task. Then another hour for another task. I see small progress. My mind never stops and one thing leads to another and next thing you know, I’ve spent half […]

I heart Seattle

Last fall I went on a travel-spree with friends, I guess you can say, I had wanderlust. I had some vacation days, great deals on hotels and all I needed was to pick a place and  go. I picked Seattle. I like organizing group trips, creating itineraries and researching places to visit and food to […]

Corn Muffin…Dairy Free

I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and make something I’ve never made before.  I usually go for recipes that have pictures, so I know what the finish product is suppose to look like, something to compare to. But heck I figured, I know what corn bread and corn muffins look like, no […]

Lunch on the Run

After a 5 mile run this morning, I did some studying and got ready for an appointment at 1pm. I had to make a quick and healthy lunch with whatever I already had in the refrigerator. I didn’t have time to cook anything. Egg salad with hummus.                                                                   2 boiled eggs 1-2 tablespoon hummus (I […]

Back to the grind

No, not the coffee kind, but the study-your-butt off grind. The other day I was driving from work and the temperature read 92 degrees…that is hot, even for Southern California standards. That’s why today was one of the days I was glad to be in school, indoors and I felt cooled all day. I also […]
