The Best Granola

No comments:
Have you ever tried making homemade granola?  I've made it a dozen times, but each batch has fallen short of my expectations. Either the oats are still a little chewy (I like them crunchy!), there's not enough raisins or the sweet/salty balance is a little off. It's so annoying, and I was about to completely give up on homemade granola, but I decided to give it one more shot, and man, am I glad that I did!
Not only is this classic granola a cinch to put together, the end results are absolutely perfect. You're gonna love it.
Here's how to make it...

Awhile back, a few of my friends and I were having a conversation about which personality trait we wished we had. I was expecting our answers to be all across the board, but as it turns out, we all said the exact same thing...

How to Survive Working in a Windowless Office

No comments:
Last week I went back to work. Fortunately, I work for an awesome company that not only hired me when I was five months pregnant, but they also gave me "the big office" so that I could bring Cecilia to work with me after she was born.
While I work, Cecilia hangs out in her swing and either sucks on her fingers or naps. If I have to nurse her, I just close my office door, turn on some white noise and dim the lights. So far it's been working really well, but I do have one complaint: My office doesn't have a window. At first I didn't think I would mind, but now  that I'm spending a few hours a day in a room without a view, I realize how much having a window to look out can boost your spirits (even if the day is overcast and cold).
Do you have any ideas how I could brighten up my office? Below are a few solutions I came up with, but I'd love to hear your ideas...

Lessons in Fashion

1 comment:
Whenever I go to the nail salon to have a manicure or a pedicure, I stare at the rotating display of nail polish and instantly start to feel overwhelmed. There are always so many colors to choose from, that somewhere between what's trendy and what's classic, I have a small panic attack and reach for a bland shade of pink.
Being a woman in my mid-thirties I have realized that decisions about fashion—right down to the polish on my toe nails—can be a bit tricky. Here are a few things I have trouble with these days...

Rad T-Shirt

No comments:
This rad t-shirt definitely gets my stamp of approval. And why we're on the subject, why is guacamole always extra?  In a perfect world, it would be served alongside the complimentary chips and salsa with a great big margarita.
Have a great weekend!
