Great Gatsby! Date night for John and me, we’re headin’ to the Guthrie for dinner at Cue and to check out the new digs’ inaugural production. Sheesh, I kinda sorta bobbed my hair yesterday, perhaps I’ll have to don a nod to something flapperesque. Hmmm… Given my decidedly un-deco wardrobe, I’m not quite sure what…

It’s hot and sticky out there today and you know what? I don’t like it! Nature has worked its magic and slowly reset my internal seasonal clock – I am now readying for fall, I can feel it. Whether it’s shorter days, a few teasing breaths of cooler air, the sweet scent of fall, or…

Happy 40th Birthday Susie! Yes, today is Suz’s big day and in perfectly fitting form, it is a gorgeous, sunny day. And as cool – and warm – as she is! Obviously (for any of you who regularly read this blog, or her blog, and/or listen to our podcast, Feminine Hijinx) Suz is beautiful, talented,…

Well, I’m sorry to say that I clearly missed greatness last night at Susan & Louis Ainsworth’s dinner for Genie & Joe Dixon, Debbie & Stu Williams, Ana Scofield & Rudy Maxa,Annamarie& Karl Rigelman, and my Johnny. I fell asleep before John got home (beer + sun + Stephanie = one tired momma), so only…

What a day – boating on the St. Croix river with Baseball Moms Beth, Jennifer, Sonja, and Suzanne. Plenty of sunshine, breathtaking scenery, hardly another soul on the river, great tunes, more beverages than we could possibly drink, a variety of tasties, and lots and lots of chat. Ahhhhh, so relaxing and decadent. Everyone kept…

The kid is back in town – woo hoo! Cooper Doo, I’ve missed you! In the month since I’ve seen him his hair has gotten even redder and he’s gotten quite strong. And he’s busy! Squirm, wiggle, kick, grab, squirm, smile, frown, wiggle. He’s still the sweetest, happily sitting on Daddy Bowen’s lap while we…

A fun, food-filled, chicksville weekend ahead, my friends. Tonight…well, I can’t talk about tonight – sorry Suz! Not yet anyhow. Kim and I are treating our dear friend Susie to a little pre-birthday celebration this evening and all I’ll say is that we’ll eat something. And drink something. Zip it! Enough on that. For now….

Oooh, a dark, dreary day. Perfect for hangin’ at the hacienda with a good book (A Soldier of the Great War by Mark Helprin) and not much else. Which is fine, little on the tired side today, feels goooood to hole up at home and keep things cozy and simple. I’m planning omelets for dinner…little…

Crispy oven-roasted chicken drummies tonight, with fresh corn, rice (I know, two grains, but my family lurves grains), sliced garden tomatoes with salt and pepper, and kale sauteed with a bit of bacon (that one is for myself, I’m the only kale fan in this household – their loss! So yummy and nutritious!). And for…

My Johnny, headin’ to the beach, totally relaxed, loving his vacation…he had a particularly great time in EH this year. He stayed longer than Nathan and I did, didn’t come back until late Saturday night, and those extra days worked their magic. He hasn’t had a week-long vacation in, well, years, maybe since we went…
