End of the Year Playlist

My final playlist of 2014 is just one song brought to you by DJ Earworm. One song to close out the year, you ask?  One song.  How can it just be one song?  Well, that it is because DJ Earworm gives us the top songs of 2014 in one song. DJ Earworm aka Jordan Roseman is a San Fransisco DJ and mash up artist who's claim to fame is mashing up ...

Nama…STAY!

Where I live it can get pretty cold in the winter.  And because it gets so cold I keep my socks on for everything.  I am very much a "socks on" kind of girl. Socks on for just about anything and everything.    Now before you let your minds go into the gutter I am talking specifically about keeping my socks on for Pilates and yoga.  I suppose ...

Morning Brew

As I mentioned in previous blogs I am not big on breakfast.  Don't like it, but I have to do it. Since I am not a breakfast lover then it should come as no surprise that I am also not a big fan of brunch. Now I can hear you all saying, "But brunch isn't really breakfast.  What's your problem with brunch, woman?" First, I consider ...

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends out there.  My advice for today is stay zen, enjoy the madness, eat a lot, regret nothing. Here is my quote for you on this Thanksgiving Day. "Thanksgiving, man.  Not a good day to be my pants." - Comedian Kevin James

Avocado and Egg Whites

Hubby and I just got back from a sweet ass vacation to New Orleans.  In addition to touring graveyards, wandering the garden district and hearing some amazing music we also had the privilege of eating and drinking our way through the Big Easy. But now the vacation is over and it is back to reality. I always preach that one of the reasons I ...

Every Day People?

If you look hard enough there is always a study telling you exactly what you want to hear.  And when it comes to alcohol consumption it is getting easier and easier to find reasons to drink. Recently I read on The Huffington Post about a study that came out suggesting that downing a few cocktails help boost the memory in adults over 60.  ...

The (nobody’s) Perfect Breakfast

Okay, I agree.  Not the most appetizing looking breakfast but I decided to post this photo along with this recipe to not only share a healthy and easy breakfast idea but also to make a point. Nobody is perfect. When I was serving up my Baked Avocado & Egg breakfast one half went flipping off my serving spoon and ended up splattering on ...

October Playlist

Even though my favorite of all holidays is coming up, this month's playlist has nothing to do with Halloween. Last week I went to see one of the most amazing bands touring today.  The band is The Gaslight Anthem.  And they are amazing. First to defend my use and/or over use of the word  "amazing" to Louis C. K., I really and for truly ...

Wonderful Words

For all of us going out this weekend I give you this Irish drinking toast and words of advice. "When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk, and go to heaven"  

Drinking That Gin and Juice

A few years ago gin and I suffered a bad break up.  After a pretty epic night at a friends cabin drinking G & T's on a hot summer night, I woke up the next morning to the realization that gin and I no longer got along.  Gin made me feel like crap.  Gin made me hate myself.  The very thought of gin made me want to puke.  That morning I ...
