    Musings: It Isn’t Fall Without Apple Hill

    Do you have Fall traditions?! If you live in or near Sacramento, I’m sure you travel to Apple Hill at least once a year. If you’re lucky (and brave), you go more. What is Apple Hill, you may ask? It’s rolling hills of apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and Christmas tree farms in Camino, California. Home of apple fritters the size of your face and an endless supply of apple donuts and apple cider. Among other things…such as arts and crafts for sale, homemade everything, and a classic Fall day with family and/or friends. It’s basically a Fall staple for any Northern Californian. From Sacramento, it’s only about a 45 minute drive…on a good day. I could…

    Coffee Date – Adios May

    Lordy, lordy…it’s already June! Hi! I feel like I’ve been scarce around here lately, but for good reason. Life’s curve balls have been pretty crazy the last month, so I thought I’d just breeze through the last 31 days, as if we were sitting in your/my fave coffee shop and chatting. First off, I hope your May was lovely, challenging, and fun OR whatever you needed it to be. Did anything exciting happen, did you complete any goals, did you eat any new food? I could sit here for awhile and ask you questions about your May. I love asking questions…always have, always will. Lovebugs // A new Love Bug…

    Rose & Thorn [48]

    It was all about the Momma’s…Momma’s…Momma’s…. Rose: Mother’s Day! I love my Momma! Thorn: The most poorly run Race for the Cure in Sacramento, what a disappointment! I’m really keeping it short this week, like really! Friday Right after work I went straight to the mall to pick up our packets for the Race for the Cure, however, it wasn’t at the mall. But, I didn’t really care because the Guidette was meeting me there for coffee and shopping (re: 10,000 returns for her). I took her on her first trip to Lulu, it was amazing…she’s forever changed. Shopping is my cardio, iced coffee is my fuel! A little lulu…

    Race Recap: Donut Dash

    Dash. Donut. Dash. Donut Dash Just in that exact order. I’ve known about this race for a year or two, but was never able to fit it into my schedule. So, when I realized it was near my birthday and a weekend that I didn’t have many commitments, I made the immediate decision to use this as a way to celebrate the big 3-2. I know, 32 is not a significant age, but it’s my birthday and I do what I want! I’d been telling everyone that this is how I wanted to celebrate my birthday, so I tried to convince friends and family to do it with me. I…

    Rose & Thorn [26]

    Sorry, a date late…dang head cold got the best of me yesterday 🙁 The last weekend of normalcy… Rose: Completing a full week of marathon training! Thorn: Damn head cold… Weekend collages are a must! This is the last weekend, before the whirlwind of the holiday’s sweeps us into an oblivion. It starts with Thanksgiving, then black Friday, then CIM, then all the holiday parties, then Christmas, then NYE. Then, if you’re like me, you’re in a holiday hangover for a week or so. Then it’s back to the normalcy that was this weekend. FRIDAY Wish I had something fun or cool to report. Nope, wasn’t feeling the best, so…

    WIAW – That good, good!

    Goodness that I found on my iPhone… Thanks, Jenn! I didn’t pick a day or even have one to use for a typical WIAW post, so I thought I’d brag about some delicious food I’ve eaten in the last week or so (and pics that haven’t been posted on the blog already). Also, I thought I’d share what a non-food-planner buys when they are conveniently at Whole Foods. My work has new hire meet and greets donut parties and I love them. If they didn’t serve donuts, I’m not sure how many people would show up. Someone always tries to save me my beloved maple bar, this time was no…
