Life Update

Hello! Okay I went away AGAIN...I am known for taking lots of trips…what can I say I like to  travel and see friends and family! This trip took Kevin, Kona (my dog) and I out to British Columbia to visit my sister and brother in law.  My parents and 2 brothers were there as well. It was great to visit with my sister since she is 8 months pregnant. I am so excited to be an Auntie very soon!!  Road trips are always fun - it is a 20 hour drive which we split into 2 days. Canada is a very beautiful country which I try not to take for granted since we drive across it so much.

Here are a few recent photos...
Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting that I made for Jenna's baby shower

Exploring the woods around Jenna & Mike's

I took maternity photos for them! Fun stuff

Baby shower that Jenna's friends hosted - she got some good loot!

Simple dinner I made last night - Tom Kha Gai which is a Thai Coconut Soup.  I adapted this recipe by omitting the chicken, adding red curry paste, using ginger instead of galangal and adding basil and green onions.  Soup-er yummy!! Pardon the pun.
For the salad I stuck with the asian theme.  Mixed greens, purple cabbage, carrots, green onions, sesame seeds (white & black). Dressing: Olive oil, splash of sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic, fresh grated ginger & pepper.
I love making homemade salad dressings - super simple, yummy and WAY better for your then store bought.

Since I last posted I started a 21 day meditation - okay I may have missed a few days in a row and I'm still getting used to shutting my brain off completely (seems impossible right now but practice makes perfect right?) Overall I'm enjoying taking 20 minutes per day to focus on myself, silence the brain and relax!

I am back to work getting the restaurant ready to re-open next Thursday!

I should be back to more regular posting and maybe even attempting some outfit photos now that the weather is warming up.

Have a FABULOUS weekend everyone!
