    on Jul 14, 2012 in Movies
    Today I'm thankful for movies. Specifically movies that bring me back. You know, waaaay back.I'm spending the night kicking back, churning some strawberry sour cream ice cream, and watching a movie that I might literally be able to recite every line...
  • June 13, 2012: Shopping Local
    on Jun 13, 2012 in Local Shopping
    Today was one of those days that confirms that my neighborhood is the best. So good in fact that it brought be out of my blogging shell.  The long Summer days are begging me to stay outside for as long as possible in the evenings, so I head...
  • April 30, 2012: Words of Wisdom
    on May 1, 2012 in Words of wisdom
    I have always struggled with the "everything happens for a reason" philosophy. Because really, does it?  I have uttered those words on occasion, like when I can't find a parking spot and when I find one it just happens to be in front of my favo...
  • April 18, 2012: April
    on Apr 18, 2012 in April
    Today I am thankful for April. It's practically San Francisco's Summer. Every year around this time, I start spending a lot of time in our backyard weeding, planting, and sun-soaking. And this year is no different.Every evening after work I head down...
  • April 9, 2012: New Additions
    on Apr 9, 2012 in New Additions to the Family
    I spent the weekend living it up in my old stomping grounds: Chico! Love that little town!Okay, so maybe I wasn't exactly "living it up" Chico style, but I sure did enjoy myself. I got some much needed cuddle time in with my first Nephew and God...
  • April 2, 2012: Clean Bathrooms
    on Apr 3, 2012 in Clean Bathrooms
    Today I'm thankful for clean bathrooms. Some people might judge a restaurant by it's food, it's decor, etc. I judge a restaurant by its bathroom. Dirty bathrooms are gross. I feel like a bathroom that is well-tended and clean and smell...
  • March 26, 2012: Whole Milk
    on Mar 26, 2012 in Whole Milk
    Today I'm thankful for whole milk.  I used to me a strictly non-fat girl. Lattes, in my cereal, etc. I'm totally a convert.  I read a study that non-fat milk contained more of the "bad stuff" in milk. I don't remember the details, but...
  • March 19, 2012: Breakfast in Bed
    on Mar 19, 2012 in Breakfast In Bed
    Today I'm thankful for breakfast in bed. I used to think it was weird to eat in bed. Now I totally get it. The Hubs has been working, working, working non-stop for the better part of the last two weeks, night and day. But he still thought it wou...
  • March 12, 2012: Kindle Case
    on Mar 13, 2012 in Kindle Case
    I got a Kindle for Christmas, literally moments after I proclaimed that I wasn't the Kindle "type". I still prefer the paper book and only read my Kindle when I can't get the book I want from the library fast enough. And I still don't think I'm...
  • March 5, 2012: Introspection
    on Mar 5, 2012 in Introspection
    My lovely friend Caroline at Coeur de La posted this. It reminds me of one of the online surveys that were really popular when MySpace first started...but not as cheesy. Today I'm thankful for introspection. Sometimes it's fun to think...
  • February 29, 2012: Leap Year
    on Feb 29, 2012 in Leap Year
    Today I am thankful for Leap Year. I don't know why, I suppose it's the novelty. I wonder how many women will propose to their significant others today? Or how many babies will be born? It would be both fun and annoying to have a Leap Year birth...
  • February 18 2012: Sloppy Seconds
    on Feb 19, 2012 in Sloppy Seconds
    Today I am thankful for the "sloppy seconds" man on Market Street. I do not know his name, so I call him that. I have never spoken to him, but he speaks to everyone. We do not agree on much, but I look forward to seeing him none the less. N...
  • February 12, 2012: Cookbooks
    on Feb 12, 2012 in Cookbooks
    Today I am thankful for cookbooks.  I'm not sure if I'll ever have enough. I found a fun cookbook filled with San Francisco restaurant favorites today and I have spent the last hour flipping through the pages, getting inspired.I'm really feeling...
  • February 8, 2012: Rain Drops at Nght
    on Feb 8, 2012 in Rain Drops at Night
    Today I am thankful for raindrops at night. A couple nights ago there was an unexpected rain storm that snuck up on the city just as I crawled into bed. The sounds of the rain on the roof and windows as I was snuggled up with a book was just per...
  • January 30, 2012: San Pellegrino
    on Jan 30, 2012 in San Pellegrino
    Today I am thankful for San Pellegrino Aranciata. We bought a Costco sized case a while ago and I have been sipping my way through...yum. It is slightly reminiscent of the Orangina I enjoyed as a kid, but so much better! I am also very fond of t...
  • January 23, 2012: Family Photos
    on Jan 23, 2012 in Family Photos
    I don't remember when my little family became just that: a family. It seems logical that it would have happened when The Hubby and I tied the knot, but I'm pretty sure it happened before that. I do remember thinking to myself that I wasn't sure...
  • January 15, 2012: Ice Cream Maker
    on Jan 16, 2012 in Ice Cream Maker
    Today I am thankful for our Ice Cream Maker.  Technically, I suppose it isn't ours so much as Nick's since it was his Christmas present...but boy do I enjoy that thing. We whipped up our first batch for New Year's Eve and definitely felt l...
  • January 4, 2011: Paying It Forward
    on Jan 8, 2012 in Pay It Forward
    Today I am thankful to have been the recipient of a "Pay it Forward" moment. I'm not one hundred percent sure that it's what it was, but I'm sure that it is what it will become.There was a long line for train tickets, there was a man who cut in front...
  • Day 365: December 31, 2011!
    on Jan 4, 2012 in Health Friends NYE Food family New Year
    Writing this post is quite anticlimactic since New Year's Eve has come and gone. But I wanted it to be good, I wanted to think a lot and reflect a lot and write an epic post and I didn't have the time or energy to do my last post justice. The sunset...
  • Day 363/362: December 28, 2011
    on Dec 31, 2011 in Mistakes
    It was today that I realized that I made a mistake somewhere along the way. I am on Day 363 with three more days in the year, and last time I checked there were not 366 days in this year. Oops. It's a good thing I'm not a perfectionist, because if I...
