It may be the start of a new weekend, but I want to do a quick scenes from the weekend before it's obsolete! Well, we can't win'em all, so this is our camping/eclipse recap. Check in tomorrow for the most recent weekend recap. Last weekend at the crack of dawn (9am) we set out on… Continue reading The Path of Totality
The countdown begins! In just over two months I'll be returning from a trip to Croatia/Germany/TBD. I found cheap tickets (we're talking under $400) roundtrip from SFO-->DBV for either 8 days or 16 days. After some debate it was decided that 8 days is too short, so 16 days was the best option to create a… Continue reading Trip Planning
If we were having coffee right now I'd share with you... The extra space on my back porch step to soak up these August sunbeams. I can't get enough of the warmth on my face paired with my iced Americano; I wish I could spend the majority of my summer days in the outdoors! The… Continue reading Virtual Coffee Date
Signed, sealed, and delivered, I'm yours! We all love getting fun mail, but the practice of sending letters and packages now seems to be reserved for special events. I believe the popularity of subscription boxes came to be and stayed because we all LOVE to receive a fun package. Snail mail delivery is even better when it's… Continue reading Subscription Box Mania

February was a whirlwind of traveling: three cities, two different travel companions, two beaches, in only in seven days! I sipped on frothy butter beer in Diagon Alley with other aspiring wizards in Orlando, Florida. From there we rented a car and experienced my first toll plaza and turnpike as we cruised cruised down to… Continue reading Havana, Cuba
Where's The Food Club (WTF) is back for round 2! This week the winning cuisine vote went to Ethiopian, we threw a dart and Yelp suggested Ras Dashen. 57 reviews, one $ out of five, and a solid 4.5 stars provided the group confidence that this restaurant would meet our "high" expectations. Not two minutes… Continue reading WTF Does Ethiopian
When your friends start a food club, (Where'sTheFood?) it seems like an appropriate time to return from a blogging hiatus. The inaugural event took place at a local dumpling house, Din Thai Fung, commonly known to locals as DTF. Please, don't mix that abbreviation with any others that may appear in UrbanDictionary.com. If you'd like… Continue reading DTFWTF
It's December 4th and the holiday season is in FULL swing here at "The Penthouse."December is my favorite month of the year. This is solely based on the fact that it's encouraged to wear huge comfortable sweaters to parties. These sweaters are generally of the "ugly" variety, and lighting candles every night is more socially acceptable.… Continue reading ‘Tis The Season: Weekend Review
