It’s the last day of March and I think we are all probably collectively drawing a sigh of relief, amiright? I’m linking up again with the lovely Leigh Kramer to share What I’m Into Lately – all the things big and small that I’m enjoying in the worlds of movies, music, tv, books, the interblag and more. March Reading This month I finished two books: … Continue reading What I’m Into Lately: March 2014
March certainly roared in here like a lion – a gusty, angry bitter cold lion that occasionally acted just tame enough that you forgot it was still totally willing to bite your head off if you wore the wrong jacket.

The whole Throwback Thursday thing has gotten really big lately – it’s all over Facebook and twitter and everyone’s getting in one the action. Myself included – you know I love a good bandwagon.

That tiny little … Continue reading Diary of a Ballerina

Things run like clock work and a dish totally comes together and maybe even the whole family eats it without sniffing it suspiciously and announcing, “I don’t like [insert perfectly innocuous food item here]”. But the truth is most of the time I’m just making it up as I go along – … Continue reading 7 Tips to Rule The Kitchen.
You know when you read a line in a book, blog post or buzzfeed article, etc. that is just so perfect that it will not leave your mind. You keep whispering it over and over – in your mind though, not out loud because you’re not crazy… Okay, maybe once or twice out loud just to see how the words feel in your mouth.

So I recently tried the Bai drinks for the first time, because my husband’s cousin started working for the company and they boasted being 100% natural with only 5 calories a serving and had cool looking bottles and I was curious.
