Oh happy weekend 11.7.14

 

Fall is in full swing here in Northern California but I do appreciate that temps are still getting up to the high 70s. This weekend will be a bit of a college throwback at the birthday party of a fellow Bucknellian. Requested attire: Fall's Finest, including elbow pads, plaid and vests - what my preppy collegiate self was made of. Also on the agenda, a group dinner with close friends at this Bay Area landmark, and a T-Swift SoulCycle class!

Bay Area local? Get your craft on this weekend!

When the temps drop I must make this classic dish.

My ultimate running inspiration.

So many ways to eat this tropical tuber.

A married couple and their year of dates.
 
This Southern city is on my fall getaway wish list.

My favorite drink get's a fall makeover.

No weekend is complete with out freshly baked treats.

What I'm reading now

I never used to read multiple books at one time but there are just too many books on my list so these day's I've been doubling up. I usually pair a novel with a memoir or some other non-fiction, as I often read different genres at different times or in different locations, depending on my mood. Especially in the summer, everyone needs a good vacation read (in which case I recommend The Vacationers, not pictured here!) If you're need any fitness motivation you know which of these to pick up, and if you want a good cry.... read on to find out:

1. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - This took me ALL summer to read but it's totally worth it. Plus then you can join the rest of the universe in saying you're reading "The Goldfinch."

2. Finding Ultra by Rich Roll - I am fascinated by ultramarathon runners and ultra-athletes. Roll's journey to overcome obesity (and much more) to become the athlete he is now (and always has been on some level) is at times completely unbelievable. It will certainly make you think, if Rich can do it, I can (whatever your goal may be)!

3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman - Take note: Do not try to read book this in public as I spent one full day doing - from airport to plane to train. I couldn't keep the tears from coming. That is all.

4. The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman - Take the quiz first, then you'll want to know more!

I am such a sucker for Wellies in all their colorful rubbery glory...and when they are pint-sized. I die.

Oh happy weekend 8.30.14



It's my birthday weekend (yes that's a thing!) and while I haven't had a traditional birthday cake I've had nothing but sweets for 3 days now! (Cookies, flourless cake, multiple cupcake varieties...)  Of course there's still plenty of time in the long weekend to make a cake of my own... that way it's exactly what I want! :)

Enjoy these links for your long weekend!

If I had to pick my favorite cake combo I'd go with yellow cake and chocolate frosting. This one is supposed to be EPIC.

I love everything about this outfit (and put many of these items on my bday list)!

Not many 23-year-old's can say they've had this job!

A recognizable Marin native shares her local love-it list.

The best weekend of the year just came and went...and I'm already looking forward to 8/15/15!

Taking pinatas to a whole new level.

Everyone is talking about the 5 love languages. I need to take the quiz then pick up the book!

Enjoy National Toasted Marshmallow Day! These, these, and all of these looking ah-mah-zing.

Not toasted, but equally delicious: Frozen s'mores.
