Since the adults already dressed up this past weekend for Halloween, it was time for the kids to be their cute alter ego. Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog movie says hello. My niece has been waiting all month long to wear her costume. Every time I saw her, she kept reminding me that […]

Happy Halloween Eve! We had our Halloween fun this weekend. We attended the annual Halloween event at Chris’s work. His and hers costume.

Thank you for your sweet comments on the blog’s new design. I remember when I was little, and I would get excited when I have a fresh new notebook to write on. I would draw colorful and bright flowers on it and would wear out my colored pens. I feel the same way with the new […]

I’ve been craving chocolate lately. I’m not craving sweets, but I’m craving chocolate.  I added a heaping tablespoon of dark chocolate powder in my oatmeal bowl and it turned into this black bowl of oats. Halloween color bowl? I added shredded coconut, granola and nuts to the bowl and had myself a healthier version of […]

On Saturday mornings when we don’t have anything planned for the day, I come home after my workout with baking on my mind. I take my time making and eating my breakfast and then I read cooking magazines and go over recipes on my laptop that I have bookmarked during the week. I think of […]

In 98 days, I will be running the inaugural Disneyland Tinker Bell Half Marathon. My first and only half marathon race so far was in December 2009 at the inaugural Rock N Roll Las Vegas. I wanted to stay local this time around. I couldn’t be more excited to be training for a race that […]

Everything (by Michael Buble) You’re a fallen star You’re the getaway car You’re the line in the sand When I go too far You’re the swimming pool On an August day And you’re the perfect thing to say And you play it coy But it’s kinda cute Oh when you smile at me You know […]
