Thinking Out Loud: On My….

On My Nails: I love the OPI nail polish color on my toes right now. It’s called ElePhantastic Pink. I don’t understand why the P is capital but once again I will say that I would love to have the job of conjuring up nail polish names for OPI or Essie. On my fingers is a mix […]

  I keep meaning to update my Vegetarian Meal Ideas post to show you how I don’t need to meal plan, I just need to have specific ingredients always on hand in order to whip up good food fast.

They are currently calling for cooler temperatures for Memorial Day weekend. As long as it is sunny, I don’t care […]

Run, Read and Eat Happy

Oh rainbow shoes how I loved you. Lesson learned. Do not judge a book by it’s cover. Although on a side note, I always seem to gravitate towards the novels with the pretty covers that have a picture of a cupcake, brownie or ice cream cone and they usually come through for me as great […]
