Merry Christmas 2018

Wanted to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas! I appreciate all your support this past year. I started this blog to document the renovation of the Shoreview House, but it quickly morphed into me just wanting to ramble about everything. Then we announced we were moving Cincinnati and it turned into a way for…

Three Days in Napa

After completing the Napa Half Marathon, we stayed in Napa a few more days to explore the vineyards and enjoy several wine tastings. Three days in Napa is the perfect amount of time to explore several spots without ruining your liver or wallet.

2018 Fifty Fest

Last Saturday Nolan and I walked down to Fifty West for their 2018 Fifty Fest, featuring local beer, food and bands. We bumped into a few people we knew, watched some people dance, and surprisingly remembered to bring can coozies to keep our beer cold in the 80 degree weather!

Nespresso VertuoLine

I know it’s been almost a month since I posted something house-related, but I wanted to wait until we’d used our Nespresso VertuoLine for awhile before posting about it. I told you my Marathon Training was going to eat up a lot of my free time! But there is always time for a good cup of…

Minnesota Vikings Drink

With a NFL Divisional game coming up this weekend, I thought it’d be a good time to try out the Minnesota Vikings Drink. It’s a vodka cocktail made with lots of optimism and anxiety. Or as Star Tribune would say, enthusiasm and dread, because of their post-season record. But, maybe, just maybe, this year will…
