    Musings: My FIRST Best of Sacramento Party

    I love my city! I’m pretty sure you know that by now, but just in case you didn’t…I had to say it AGAIN! We have a local publication, Sacramento Magazine, that has been around forever. Poppa Bear has been a subscriber forever. I always love paging through the magazine at their house or anywhere really. This magazine releases a Best of Sac list every year and then they host an event to showcase the winners, which raises money for a specific charity. Year after year, I’ve seen all the event photos and heard about the event. I was always too cheap to buy a ticket. And sadly, was never offered…

    Musings: A SURPRISE Breakup Party

    No Juan was harmed during this celebration! I feel like this type of thing only happens to Real Housewives of [insert hella different cities] or on SATC! N E V E R did I imagine my girl tribe would surprise me with a breakup party! I woke up the next day with the largest smile I’ve had in a long time and even caught myself literally laughing out loud to myself, about the antics of a wonderful evening celebrating my breakup. The group chat for the entire next day was literally giving me life and had me laughing out loud in my cubicle and at the gym! Seriously, I am…

    Musings: Consistently, Inconsistent

    That title pretty much sums up my blogging routine lately… Via …and I’m actually okay with it. I was pumping out five posts a week. They were very automated, by that I mean I did the same thing week in, week out. As a reader, thanks for sticking around – whatever your intentions may be. I’d love to think people come here to see what I’m up too and genuinely be happy for me, or just for a decent read. The realist in me knows that’s not why all people come to my little part of the blogisphere. Those that come here with ill intentions are welcomed to keep their…

    Rose & Thorn [45]

    Happy Monday. – No one ever Rose: Celebrating two birthdays and a fun little 5 miler race! Thorn: Sore. Sore. Sore! As always, a weekend that flew by with tons of fun in between. In the event of keeping it short, here goes an attempt. Friday I’m not used to Friday night plans, so when Tanna invited us to her birthday I was happy to oblige. We all met up at Strings Italian Kitchen, in my old stomping grounds, for dinner. They all were going to go skating afterwards, but we had a long weekend ahead of us and decided to skip that part of the evening. I hadn’t eaten…

    Thinking Out Loud – Without Much Thought

    Just not feelin’ it today… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. I say that now, but then the post will end up going on for ever…and ever… Pizza // Do you ever have such an intense craving for food, but don’t give in for days. Then finally, the weather gets gloomy and pizza and cuddling just sound perfect? Yeah, that happened. I have been craving pizza for damn near a week now and we finally caved and got it last night, even though we had planned to make breakfast burritos. We did, we just made them for this AM (which were freakin’ amazing, by the way!). J’s friends stopped by, before…

    WIAW – Monday (Ugly) Eats

    Being a rule follower today! Thanks, Jenn! So here is What I Ate Monday. As much as I want to, I won’t apologize for how ugly (re: foil plate) my plating and eats are. This is a genuine day in the life of my food intake. Breakfast and lunch are almost always consumed at my desk. Dinner is always up for grabs, more than half the time I don’t even know whats going to happen until it is being made or purchased somewhere! Breakfast Breakfast Sandwich: Whole Wheat bread, one slice of TJ’s Colby jack cheese, three egg whites, and a little (actually a lot) of TJ’s Organic ketchup! Coffee:…

    Rose & Thorn [27]

    Adios November… Rose: Giving thanks, family, and friends… Thorn: Damn head cold…part deux! So, since I generally start my weekend when I get out of work, this post should start from Wednesday at noon until yesterday evening. Buuuut, this would be the longest blog post ever to be written so I’ll try to keep it short and simple, even picture based for ya’ll! WEDNESDAY Errands, errands, errands. A quick solo lunch, cause J as stuck at home sick. Packet pick-up for the annual Thanksgiving day run and then home to chill for a second. J accompanied AND paid for my pedicure – I won a bet in January (yes, 10…

    Rose & Thorn [22]

    Weekends like this make Monday’s suck so much less… Rose: Hair finally did and Giants winning TWO WS games!! Thorn: Not getting to spend enough QT with Lady and her new lovebug… So much goodness packed into one weekend, I’m a happy girl! Oh yeah, and in case you aren’t human and don’t know it yet…the Giants need one more WIN to win the World Series… FRIDAY After following a huge news story all day, I was glad to see that that ass of a human was caught! I heard it made national news, but some scum of a human (and his lady friend) killed two deputies, injured another, and…

    WIAW – Girls Gone Wine

    “Girls Weekend” means that calories don’t count… Thanks, Jenn! I just wish my body knew that 🙂 I’m taking creative liberties (again) and going to post my weekend eats, not just one day. So, although indulgences were a plenty, we actually didn’t eat super boughie (re fancy). We kept it pretty low key for the most part. Our whole mentality was “go with the flow,” so we just ate wherever and whenever we were hungry. The only nice sit down dinner we had was on Friday night and sadly, it’s vibe was better than it’s food :/ FRIDAY McDonald’s – a snack for the road trip! Kids meal w/ cheeseburger…

    Rose & Thorn [18]

    Chillaxin’… Rose: Cheesy moment warning: Spending a relaxing weekend with J (previously referred to as The Boy)…  Thorn: Bummed I didn’t get to see the Lil and R when they came in for a quick visit to see Poppa Bear! Relaxation I didn’t even realize I needed. I thrive on busy, so when a fairly low-key weekend happens, I don’t realize I need to appreciate it until it is all said and done. Pardon the borningness of this post, there were definitely some fun moments, but this weekend was mostly spent lounging and EATING… FRIDAY Who doesn’t like to start their weekend with a trip to Brazil? HAHA, TMI for…
