It's been a hot summer here in the northwest. The days have been blistering hot, and although it's mostly dry heat, I sometimes feel like I'm going to melt into a puddle on the sidewalk. Something that always gets me in the summer is getting ready for the day. I love a really hot shower, but in the hot months I try and change to a more tepid...

Dear Diet, I am sick of depriving myself from food that I really like. I am also sick of feeling hungry, cranky, and tired all the time. Instead of loosing pounds, I have gained guilt surrounding food....especially  every time I sneak some chocolate from the pantry. I just can't do this anymore! This  just isn't working out.  I watched a few...

But it seems like the last 10lbs of baby weight just want to linger around... especially around the upper thigh and belly area. The other day my four-year-old asked if I had a baby in my belly. I replied with, "Um, no honey- just a food...

I've had a bit of a love affair with leather lately. The wonderful thing about it is, there are so many different textures, thicknesses, and colors, and the applications are endless. Lucky for me, my dad is a hunter, going to South Africa every year and also hunting buffalo, deer, and elk closer to home. He gave me a few tanned hides, and I got...

As more and more birthdays pass, life seems to get more and more predictable.  Where's the excitement?  Where's the spontaneity?  When I turned 30, I realized that I was eating at the same restaurants, driving the same routes, and doing the same routine everyday.  I needed to spice things up!  There were SO MANY things I wanted/needed to...
