SEXBOBOMB borrowed this little "getting to know you" quiz from LBFROMBUFAD and I am borrowing it from her. Because what could be more interesting than a blog all about me? I'll repeat their words here as well -- if you want to steal it from m... Read more
So I went to NYC for a workshop this week. I am madly in love with New York. I'm from Chicago, which I firmly believe is the most beautiful city in the world, but there is something about the energy in New York which is not duplicated anywhere... Read more
I realize that there is a certain amount of irony in my posting this the day after posting a rant about chemical-laden processed foods. I admit to a certain amount of hypocrisy, but at the same time, I do think that there is a difference betwee... Read more
I love Pinterest. I love the fitness quotations, and the cute hairstyles, and all of the great decorating ideas. Mostly though, I love looking at the recipes. I am a total foodie. I didn't get fat on McDonalds and Doritos; I got fat on slow ... Read more
