Bad Moon on the Rise

In the words of CCR's John Fogarty, "I see the bad moon arising. I see trouble on its way."

Lean and Green

I know I'm not alone when I say that McDonald's Shamrock Shakes are one of my favorite treats this  time of year. Pure deliciousness.

Spring Ahead! Weekend Recap

Quick recap of this weekend -- A friend and I went to the Farmer's Market in Troy on Saturday.

Along with the usual Farmer's Market produce haul, I picked up a jar of Saratoga Peanut Butter. Featured in "O"  and Rachel Ray’s Magazine, as well as in Business Week and The Wall Street Journal, I knew it had to be good!

Bring the Action: HIIT Workout

So jealous of all the bloggers out there, like EAS from Let the Tide Wash Your Dreams Ashore and Liz from Sequins and Stripes, who are enjoying a winter wonderland-- or what some clever person dubbed snowquester!

Committed to Camo and Country

Big weekend over here-- I left my suburban, prep comfort zone entirely! After dinner on Friday night, we planted ourselves on the couch, and the Sailor flipped channels while I caught up on blogs. His surfing ultimately led to watching a couple of hours (...hours, not episodes) of Duck Dynasty, for which I had already declared my disdain. But the truth of the matter is that, for once, the blogs couldn't keep my attention! That Robertson family is funny, and I mean FUNNY.
