Happy Halloween! Our Halloween was all about my nephew Cooper this year. Coop! He was a monkey, scampering around saying “twick tweat” and “canny!” (For maximum cuteness, check out the video, below.) I have a feeling some little monkey will be sleeping pret-ty well tonight! Nathan donned…yep, Bucky Badger-wear, loosely as a costume, but mostly…

On Wisconsin! Nathan and I are back from our Badger Homecoming Adventure and we had a GREEEAT time. It was a quick trip – 48 hours door-to-door-to-door – but well worth the drive to see the lovely campus in all its fall glory. As a bonus (?) it was also Madison’s annual Halloween Freakfest celebration,…

Um, OK, sometimes I do like surprises – A LOT!!! Yes, my sweet husband looked past my unsentimental anniversary attitude (although I got him a killer gift too, which I haven’t been able to give him yet, but I know he’s gonna love it) and got me the most killerest, hardcore, rock-n-roll ankle boots EVAR….

Alright, after all my reading (I’ve been a bit buried for days, sorry), I’ve decided to back way off on sugars and grains. I haven’t completely eliminated them, of course, but I’m consuming very few. Even more emphasison fresh meat, dairy, veggies, fruits. Whole foods, baby! Actually not much of a change, I haven’t been…

Anniversaries. I don’t go overboard for the required celebrations (other than my 40th birthday, ha). Oh, John and I saw an amazing movie (Into the Wild), followed by a lovely dinner tonight, in the bar at La Belle Vie (always a winner) to celebrate our 5th annivesary. But the forced part of it, that this…

All hail kale! OMG I hated the stuff when I was kid – or at least I thought that I did, I never actually tried it. My Grandma Meyer cooked it, long and slow, with some form of pork (I think), which sounds absolutely delicious to me now but egads it stunk up her house….

How super-stylin’ is my nephew Cooper while he scopes his Halloween pumpkin? The little pumpkin with his pumpkin, awww, Coop! Good thing he’s keeping toasty warm in his hat and scarf on such a cold day! Brrr! Nathan, John, and I are keeping toasty warm too, with bowls of chewy rigatoni tossed with a sauce…

Rain, rain, go away! Especially on a Monday, sheesh. I stumbled out of bed, pulled on my walking clothes, pulled my hair back, brushed my teeth, made my way out to the kitchen in the dark, turned on my coffee…and then realized it was pouring and I was going exactly nowhere after dropping Nathan at…

Badger Homecoming, the weekend of October 26, heh, heh, heh! Thanks to our friend and co-Badger alum Jon, who pulled together tickets from our other mutual friend Niko – woo hoo Jon and Niko! And this time, I’m taking Nathan (and Jon’s taking his daughter Sophia), which will cast a verrryy different (read: sober!) view…

I braved the heat and humidity to snip some herbs from my deck (OK, it was only a few steps, but it’s HOT out there!) and found a couple of colorful visitors (black swallowtail caterpillars!) feasting on my parsley. And some pretty little blooms on my rosemary. Very not October (poor buggers, I don’t think…
