Weekend Recap: Winter Culinary Weekend

Recap of January 25-28. This weekend was not a great one for me, which was a real disappointment because I had very high hopes. It was Beaver Creek Winter Culinary Weekend, an event I thoroughly enjoyed last year. This year though, the format was quite a bit different, and I really didn’t like it as much :( Thursday night, I went to bed late and then had major insomnia. I kept waking up and thinking about some work that I {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Running a Campaign and a Race

While my last few weekends have had a lot of downtime and unplanned activities, this weekend was the opposite – a whirlwind of plans and commitments that barely let me be home. But I loved every minute of it! To be fair, I kicked off this weekend with a lot of downtime and relaxation. Earlier this year, I decided it was silly that I’ve been working in Florida less than a half mile from the beach, and yet I never {Read More}

Realistically, I don’t think things are going to ease up anytime soon, but I’m going to keep trying to sneak some reading in where I can. 5 stars: The Last Mrs. Parrish, by Liv Constantine: This was such {Read More}

TGI Flyday: Unexpectedly Looking Forward to the Weekend

Thursday = Flyday in consulting land, and with all the winter storms going on, I was a little worried I wouldn’t make it out tonight. The Dallas forecast was “snow and thunderstorms”, which is pretty much the worst possible forecast you can ever have in Texas, and so I was checking my flight status most of the afternoon, prepared for the worst. Fortunately, I’m in flight now, and psyched to finally be sleeping in my own bed tonight. Tomorrow is {Read More}

Beginning My Perfect Day

When Adam was here over Memorial Day weekend, we spent Monday night cooking together, and decided to do something super cheesy while we cooked. A few months ago, the New York Times published an article called To Fall In Love With Anyone, Do This. It goes on to talk about a series of 36 questions designed to help you get to know each other, and also to help you fall in love with each other. We already know each other {Read More}
