Project Pinterest: Fall Fashion

I try as much as possible to pin ideas that I might actually use, but even I’m a sucker for all the cute fashion pins all over Pinterest.  The few times I’ve gone through the link to actually look at the cost of an item, I’m usually blown away by the exorbitant price.  Fashion is… Continue reading Project Pinterest: Fall Fashion

The Lost Reading Logs: August 2009

I’ve been keeping a Reading Log since late 2008.  And when I started trying to organize all those Reading Logs in the blog archives, I realized I was pretty inconsistent about sharing them.  There are entire months unpublished, although (I promise!) I was still keeping track of what I was reading. So now, mostly for… Continue reading The Lost Reading Logs: August 2009

WIWW: November 4-10, 2012

What I Wore Wednesday! My motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time!  My goal is to keep a fashion diary for an entire year, and post each week’s outfits along the way 🙂 Chartreuse t-shirt dress //… Continue reading WIWW: November 4-10, 2012

2nd Annual National Picture Book Month

Somehow, we’re halfway through November and halfway through National Picture Book Month! Remember last year, when I took on Picture Book Month as my 30-day blogging challenge?  I blogged every day for 30 days, highlighting one of my favorite picture books to go along with the official website’s calendar… and optimistically vowed to do the… Continue reading 2nd Annual National Picture Book Month

Meow Monday: Shopping Spree

Working in offices attached to a shopping center = dangerous.  Especially when Loft is having a 40% sale! Fortunately, the cats love it when I shop.  So it’s a win-win for everyone!   Bonus points if there’s tissue paper involved.   Tali, not so interested. She’s much more concerned with her food bowl being filled.… Continue reading Meow Monday: Shopping Spree

City Sights: Alcatraz at Night

Alcatraz has been on my To-See list ever since we moved here. I’ve always heard that the Night Tour is the best experience, but every time I tried to buy tickets they were sold out weeks in advance.  We wanted to go around Halloween for the spook factor, but even in September the earliest available… Continue reading City Sights: Alcatraz at Night

Meow Monday: Sleeping Spots

Cora and Tali have very predictable sleeping spots. Tali = the bed and the box. Cora = tables and the top of the couch. But lately, Tali has been commandeering Cora’s favorite spots.  She’s been spotted on top of the craft table and on top of the quilts on the couch (the most coveted of… Continue reading Meow Monday: Sleeping Spots
