    Musings: More Than Just the BOOs

    But BOOs is also pretty awesome too! The distraction of international travel didn’t really leave much mental space for Halloween thoughts. I had less than two days + jetlag to get my act together and get into the ghouly spirit. I anticipated not actually caring since the last four Halloweens were dedicated to someone else(s), but I actually felt like I should and kinda wanted to too. Work is ALL about Halloween. It seems to have stemmed from a previous CEO, but don’t quote me on that. People take it seriously around here. Emails more than a month prior go out about the decor and theme. And you thought I was…

    Diary of a Non-Cook: Mexican Food + Pinterest

    Oh, of course my creations are via Pinterest.Does that even surprise you these days? I was perusing Pinterest for some cooking inspiration and I thought to look at older pins, which of course I had never tried. Lo and behold, I found a good pin: 5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Steak Fajitas! I then got bold and decided we couldn’t have fajitas without Spanish Rice (it is ignorantly labeled Mexican Rice by the creator) so I found a recipe (re: pin) for that too. It was just going to be dinner for J and I, but the crockpot makes so much I decided to invite Care and her lil fellas over for…

But this year, we had a different little ghostly ghoul surprise us! Never been BOO’ed before? Sorry! But here it is, super simple and such a sweet gestures. Make a goody bag of any sorts – big, small, candy, themed, whatever you want or can afford. Add a note, which you can Google or use the one we were left this year. Drive to your family or friend’s house, set the package down on…

    Orange && Black

    The colors of October… Source You’re so used to me talking about the SF Giant’s I’m sure that’s where you thought this was headed…huh? Well…in any case…  Happy Halloweener! But since we brought up the Giants, I can’t even begin to tell you how sad I am that I am not freezing my ass off, somewhere in SF watching my Gmen parade themselves about to the Civic Center. Again, I will have to live vicariously through various friends and family who are there…and of course social media! The Bestest is there and is continually sending videos, so it doesn’t get much better than that! Photo Cred: Bestest Pic from this…

    5 Things Friday – Friday Five(teen)

    It’s Friday…already! Thanks, Clare! I don’t get to say that often, but this week flew by fast! I’m okay with that, that just means the weekend seemed to get here faster than normal! 5 Things I Found Extremely Funny on the Internet: 1. Who doesn’t love a good PUN? If these don’t cheer you up, then I’m afraid you are just determined to be in a bad mood. Some are really wonky, but most are hilarious! 2. What are you? I have gotten this question way more times than I’d like to tell – #4, #11 (really bugs me), #15 (just cause I love food), and #19 (for real)! 3.…
