tuesday ten

..10 things we're loving this week..
1. this chart that chobani made listing all the substitutes
you can use greek yogurt for. we LOVE this and we will use all of these!

2. facetime is the BEST. it's not quite so hard to live away from family 
when we get to facetime & chat with everyone during sunday dinner!

3. the 49ers! we are headed to the superbowl, and as you can see, even the buses in SF 
are excited. since moving to the bay, our giants won the world series, and
now the niners are headed to the super bowl! we must be good luck :)

4. we fell in love with this stationary in a store in half 
moon bay yesterday...looks just like our kona pup!

5. hydrangea's are the 2nd best flower, and 
we love having them in our kitchen..especially in january!

6. saw this idea to blend spinach + freeze it in ice trays for green smoothies!

7. for some reason i had the urge to make cookies twice this week..
i think baking relaxes me when i've had a busy day!
 lucky husband reaps the rewards of this.

8. pink seems to be my color of choice when it comes to workout gear.

9. i can't have cereal without mixing a few kinds together..so much better!

10. love that even though we just moved again,
this sign reminds us it's always home if we're together!



  1. I don't even know where to start commenting! a) I love working out in pink, I think it makes me feel feminine and fierce, b) I find hidden treasures in my closet all the time, it's like shopping! c)spinach ice cubes = MUST DO THAT. d) I am glad your sports franchises are doing well, I can't say the same for my boys in Arizona (diamondbacks or Suns) but...we're working on it? 2) that's all, glad to have discovered your blog and will be back for more, kthxbye

    1. Also, I did not mean to end that list with "2" instead of "e" but let's run with it.

    2. haha i love the a. b. c. d. 2...let's definitely run with it.

  2. Awww that is so cute that you facetime with your family!! Loving your pink workout gear!! And that cute sign! :-)
