A Hawaii transplant living it up on the East Coast for the past 14 years (Boston and Stamford, CT). I write about food, books, adventures in CT and NYC, products I love, the oxford comma, and my current journey of trying to go from lazy sack of potatoes to marathon runner. But mostly I write about food. Feel free to email me at email@example.com.

Breakfast of champions!
Guess who passed their glucose test with flying colors?! This girl!!! Sugar sugar here I come!!! (Is that not how it works?)
Seriously, the pregnancy hormones are out of control. I cried after hearing Greg T’s Parody from Frozen “Do You Want To Hear My Topic Train?”
For those of you that don’t want to click on the video/audio - I cried over a song that includes the line, “who else would wax their balls?”
Yes, yes I did.

Seriously my cousin is my idol. Which would be fine… If she wasn’t only 9.
Last night on The Mindy Project Mindy had the most amazing line ever, “I’m pretty and I don’t even know it.” *Which don’t even get me started on how heart-wrenching the topic was that included this sentence. OMG CUE WATERWORKS
But as it relates to the line itself…. Hello Awesomeness.
My conversation with Ryan then went something like this:
Me: “That is SOOOO going to be my new line! I’m pretty and I don’t even know it!”
Ryan: [EYE ROLL EYE ROLL EYE ROLL]
And then what did I get today from my mother-in-law but an email that TOTALLY TRUMPED my new line.
My 9 year old cousin made a bucket list. On it includes “Being Epic” and “Being Awesome”
And she checked them off.
BECAUSE SHE’S ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED THOSE TWO TASKS.
OMG I’m going to add “being half as awesome as little cuz” to mine in hopes of checking it off someday !

When is a compliment not a compliment…
When Ryan leans over to look at me and says, “you look really pretty today - your eyelids are all sparkly sparkly - are you trying to look like a vampire?!”

Totally pretended to be a surfing pro today as we drove slowly down the strip of beaches along the north shore for hidden little inlets filled with surfers in order to find the perfect wave. Not to surf though - as a pro I most definitely am not - but to take pictures for future artwork for our house. Which I know screams tourist. As does my head to toe ensemble of pink sundress, pink slippers, and pink iphone case. Oh well.

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the World I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home, I’m coming home
Tell the World that I’m coming
