Main Dish

I have made this yummy dish a couple of times now and I still can't get enough of it. I am at work and went to reach for my leftovers, but alas, I have forgotten them. But I have Quinoa and Pesto on the brain so thought I would spead the good word.

Picture and Recipe found here.
 The tomatoes are by far the best best best part of the whole dish, so I absolutley reccomend full force with the tomatoes!

 And another winning shot from the iPhone- kinda blurry (and totally under styled) the final ta-da moment...

Pinterest SF Meet Up

This is not the first blog posting from me about my love for Pinterest. I think everyone who knows me, knows that I love me some pinning! See original post here.   If you don't know what it is, here is my favorite definition....

So a couple weeks ago, while sitting on my computer after getting home from sitting in front of a computer all day, I was pinning and remembered that I had accepted a Pinterest Meet Up invite @ West Elm in Emmryville for that same night. What the hell. Why not?! Of course it was only 7 miles away, but it took me an hour to get over the Bay Bridge at 5:30 on a Thursday, but whatever! It was worth it. I love me some West Elm too- I walked out with a cookbook for a gift and a new pillow sham for the sofa which is totally "sofa king awesome." Check out some pics...

The SmileBooth would have been a whole lot cuter- if I actually had someone else to play with in front of the camera. Oh well- not my best shot, but that's nothing new!

Dirty One

I haven't been very consistent in my blogging lately. To be honest, I have toyed with the idea of canning the whole thing. But after some more thought- I think it really is a fun way just to document my thoughts once in a while. I guess what I am trying to say is that I do have thoughts and I don't document enough. 1 post a month or so isn't what I had in mind when setting this whole thing up.

Any Who. Today is my B'day. Yay for 31. I still feel a lot like I did one year ago today. (see last year's post here). It has been a delightful year of eating, drinking, working, and loads of HBO series on Netflix. Looking forward to all the changes before 32. Damn its kinda weird to think that I am 31. I still think that 1990 was 10 years ago.

Today we are heading to the sunny East Bay to the Claremont Hotel in Berkley where I will be soaking up my skin with some sun and some fancy spa soap.

Lyric Art

I have been seeing some cute easy DIY ideas for art.
And I just thought I would share them with you ....

This is from our wedding. We found this piece on Hautelook(I know random, right). It now hangs in our bedroom- where we work extra hard not to 'fuss or fight'. ...

If I weren't so lazy, I might try to use some of these favorite lines:

" Your the yellow bird that I've been waiting for." -- Bright Eyes
" Wipe your feet really good on the rhythm rug" -- Tribe called Quest
"They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating. And from what I've seen I believe 'em"-- Huey Lewis & the News ( okay maybe this one is pushing it)
"Hello darkness, my old friend . I've come to talk with you again. Because a vision softly creeping. Left its seeds while I was sleeping. And the vision that was planted in my brain. Still remains.Within the sound of silence" Simon and G.

What are some of your favorite- wear on your wall worthy song lyrics?

Pallet Wall Update

Are you sick of the damn pallet wall yet? Honestly. Be honest. I am.

Okay, so maybe I really am a little sick of the pallet wall, but the reason I wanted it was to hang cool stuff on it. We tried the wallpaper on one side. blah. We have painted the slats black. bleh. And here we are... with our latest... da da da daaaaa......


And then the other side....


And then a few angles.....

Where can I get some?

If anyone can find this in the US, please let me know. If you find it - I will pay you $2,000 so you can go to the UK to pick it up and bring it to me. Wait. What? That doesn't even make sense.
