Life Lately

Hello Friends!

The end of the school year is closing just like any other- with a flurry of activity and events! I’m so looking forward to summer, some fun trips planned, lots of sleep and working out hopefully! I’d love to get back on track with regularly working out, grading has taken a bit of a priority lately as I only have a few days left with my seniors.

So here is a quick view into what has been going on in the last few weeks.

I had our apartment handyman put up some shoe shelves for me, and my Type-A heart is so happy. I can see them all so I know what I haven’t work recently, and it’s wicked easy to put them back as I can quickly spot an open space on the shelf.

I went with O to the farmers market a week or two back and these strawberries were out of this world good and so bright in color.

I chaperoned a field-trip to Chinatown in San Francisco and we got dim sum and fortune cookies. So tasty!

My family has finally figured out how to make the best chilaquiles ever! Yum.

I just got back from a whirlwind weekend in Seattle for an amazing wedding to two cuties, so that post will be coming soon. How is your week going?

Love,

On My Radar

 

 

Hello Friends,

This week we finally got a glimpse of summer. It has been pretty hot during the middle of the day, but cold and grey in the mornings. It’s all about layers people!

Here are a few things that I’ve found recently.

One: Beauty Lessons from a Ballet Dancer:

As a former ballerina, I really enjoyed this clip. She moves so gracefully and clearly loves what she does.

Two: Robot Love

This little girl finds a broken water heater at the curb and thinks it’s a robot. She is so pretty adorable.

Three: My Darling

This song has been on repeat on my playlist at school. So so good. I saw her live this fall and she is an amazing artist.

Four: 

Have any fun weekend plans anyone? I’m headed off to a wedding for a old college friend, and I can’t wait to see him and catch up!

Let me know what you are doing this weekend in the comments below!

Love,

-S

MLK Weekend in Tahoe

Hello Friends

A few weekends back, I gathered as many friends as I could to enjoy the long weekend up in Tahoe. We have been drenched in the amazing amount of rain we have enjoyed in the last month or two. I love a good rainy day as much as the next gal, but I’m ready for spring and some sun!

But that weekend we had a big dump a few days before and a few days after. It was cold, but with glorious blue skies. Most people didn’t have a sturdy snow care and backed out, so it was a smaller group than expected that made the long drive up there. We relaxed a ton this weekend, eating well, watching movies, sledding and baking! It was a certain someones birthday (Ahem, Joey!!) so we celebrated by baking and eating a delicious cake.

My dad and I were talking a few days back and apparently Tahoe has gotten a record breaking 24 feet of snow in the month of January alone, which totally makes up for the last two years with basically no snow!

Love,
