Rainy days ahead means time for self-care in Seattle

When you need a little self-care on a Monday

October 24, 2016

The other night I walked home from an event after a friend gave me a ride and I got a text later that evening “Just checking to make sure you’re home okay…” My husband has been away for work for the week and my mom was babysitting my kids (and I) for the evening but it […]

Lacing up the running shoes and getting ready for the Woodinville Half Marathon

September 12, 2015

When I was contacted a few weeks about a new run in Woodinville put on by Destination Races Wine Country Half Marathons, I was excited to try it but was a little worried because I am in no shape to run a half and I didn’t think I would have enough time to train.  My […]

If you still have Halloween Candy in your house…

A restaurant I wish I brought my kids to, one I’m glad I didn’t and my favorite Seattle window

April 2, 2014

A few weeks ago we were craving some prata and I remembered a satay restaurant I’d popped into ages ago.  The restaurant was actually called Satay and it was pretty empty when we came in and our lunch of prata, tofu satay and mee goreng noodles was definitely tasty and almost reminded me of some […]

Something in my amazon feed that just made my day

February 9, 2014

Thank you amazon.  Yes, I totally need a run parachute. Obviously you know that I’ve been searching running shoes and other running things, so naturally you might think this is something I definitely need.  But you have not seen my running outfits, and they are garish enough without a giant parachute flying behind me.  And […]
