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.

I can’t believe how fast the year has gone by. I didn’t even get a chance to talk about Halloween.
First of all, Ryan and I got the most wonderful costumes. Not actually bought for Halloween but so that we could be dressed appropriate for our second (yes, I said it, second) trip to the New York Renaissance Faire this year. Because the first time we went in normal clothes and bemoaned the sadness that was us not dressed in a corset (me) and a sword (Ryan).
So outfit in hand we were going to go all out and reuse them for the Village Halloween Parade this year. But a stomach issue I’ve been battling for a little while reared its ugly head and we spent the evening at home watching TV. But I did get dressed up for my office’s Team Halloween Costume Competition. We were Duck Dynasty…. The girls were actual ducks. I’m front and center in the tiara (you know… cause “Dynasty”), in case you couldn’t tell.
And I made sure my kids were dressed up as well. (Okay I bought them all 1 costume and made them share…. Not that they minded…. Since they were all miserable to be dressed up).

Four years ago, Ryan bought a couch for our living room with the sole purpose of using it to take naps during Sunday afternoons while watching football. I thought his idea was ridiculous. Since then I have taken over the couch as my own personal second bed for nap times, falling asleep while watching TV greats such as Sister Wives, Breaking Amish, and Real Housewives of the OC. Ryan has not been amused.
Today I learned how he feels as I was displaced from the couch by another napper in our house.

I freaked out when I came home at lunch and heard a male’s voice coming from my bedroom. And then I stumbled upon this… Sox relaxing on the bed and watching some TV… I swear it was off when I left for work this morning!

This little guy made me the proudest mama at his annual check up by losing 1.5 lbs… Making him merely overweight as opposed to entering obese territory.
To him I award the highest of fives.
Now time for me to follow his lead!

No make-up, glasses, sweats and the kittehs. Working from home is wonderful. (Taken with Instagram)
Also, access to tumblr for the day… what what!

Actually, Spam did slow down long enough to pose for a picture. I was really just trying to take a picture of my fantastic AlohaMaid guava juice find so I could send it to my parents (Amazon really does sell everything!) but Spam refused to be anywhere that the camera was not.
(Thursday) 07/05/12 - (Photo a Day) On the Floor
Or on the floor and on a very messy dining room table that is only ever used about once a year as an actual dining table.
Our heating / cooling system isn’t the best which means the downstairs never gets hot enough during the winter or cold enough during the summer. And that means that these two winter loving kittehs play spend hours playing possum as they bemoan the heat. Spam’s not pictured cause he loves the warmer weather and doesn’t stay still. Well, that and the fact that he’s smart enough to venture upstairs (where the air conditioning works well) when he gets hot.

The I-just-found-this-picture-on-my-phone-and-bemoaned-the-fact-that-I-used-to-be-the-owner-of-a-not-fat-cat-at-one-point* edition.
*I hope this doesn’t reflect on my parenting abilities. But it probably does.
Also, I’m terrified that I’ll lose my phone and when a stranger finds it and scrolls through the pictures (like they always do) it’ll be so embarrassing that all they’ll find is pictures of food and my cats.

Sushi is even more obsessed with snowpocalypse than I am.
Also: puke pink shades NOT my idea. Hoping this is the year we finally upgrade. The decorative ideas of the condo’s previous owner is definitely suspect.
