This picture sums up my week. My son turned our modest living room into a gaming room for his birthday party. I had eight boys playing in three areas for about eight hours.I mean, they weren’t playing video games eight hours straight, but they were over for about eight hours.They had a great time, and…

Today’s pic is from the Hirshhorn museum in DC.  It was the last few days of the Infinity Mirrors exhibit, and I was unsuccessful at getting more passes before it ended.  The museum had an Infinite Afterparty from 6-10pm with music, cocktails, films and of course a chance to walk through the exhibit. My bf surprised me…

Today’s pic is from my back yard.  I just got a little table and chairs for the deck and relaxed with a bagel and coffee.   This is also how I would like to spend this weekend.  I’m still torn with participating in any Cinco de Mayo activities because it’s so rainy and gloomy out…

Don’t worry, this isn’t a political post.  If found that after living in DC for about 5 years, I’ve become slightly more patriotic and wanted to acknowledge Veterans Day.  I’ve thanked a few already this morning. What a week’s it’s been with the election!  Ok, that’s all I’m going to say. I’m continuing to focus my…

A baseball game and lots of food.  This is what I hope to do tonight. But first, I’m hosting an event at work for Think Pink, an organization started by a group of high school girls to raise breast cancer awareness.  We’re lighting our towers pink for the month of October and the girls are…

The first warm weather holiday of the season is finally upon us.  I think it’s officially grilling time! The weather here has been in the mid to high 80s all week, making my 1 1/2 miles trek to the Metro challenging.  I’m trying not to turn into a sweat box by the time I get to…

It’s been another big week for me. I had my second tested recipe appear in The Washington Post, which was very exciting! I’m also getting ready for my son’s birthday party this weekend. Each year he asks for a themed cake and by now I think each year he secretly tries to make them slightly…

This is my view right now and I can’t wait until lunch.  Doesn’t it look like a scene from Office Space?  I’m getting ready for the weekend and say goodbye to Miles as he heads off to see his dad for Spring Break.  While I will enjoy the week off, I’m going to miss him,…

This is happening in my office.  Right.  Now.  If we’re playing with food at 8am, I can only imagine what the office is going to be like at noon.
