+ The 20/20 Experience comes out tomorrow. What do you guys think so far?

+ Personal sport updates: 1) Kobe is out and killin’ me. 2) While I’m not doing an official pool this year, I’m excited to see how my March Madness bracket fares. Go Duke! 3) NFL free agency has already been interesting to watch. My dear Rams have me nervous though.

Have a good one, all!

Weekend happenings//


+ Sometimes your weekend posts get put up on Thursday after the whole week goes by. Whoops. Things are bizzy around here, but here’s a snippet of my weekend in Sonoma to escape the usual pace of things. Nothing does a body good quite like quality time shared with loved ones.


+ Kicking off Barrel Tasting at Hook and Ladder winery. Non-wine drinkers like me get mugs.

+ The whole gang.

+ Barrels everywhere.

+ Friends since elementary school: Emily, myself, and Paula.

+ Enjoying Windsor Oaks Winery, our final stop. Such a beautiful setting.

+ Celebrating the birthday girl’s 25th!

+ Strolling around Petaluma after brunch. Petaluma has some seriously cool buildings.

+ Visiting the gorgeous Green Music Center and Weill Hall. Looking forward to taking in a show there one day.

Other notes//

+ I cannot tolerate the Harlem Shake videos at all, but JT gets a pass as always.

+ Some designer humor: I need both of these guys.

+ Dunk of the week: DeAndre Jordan kills it.

+ Tyler Wright nabbed the Roxy Pro title this weekend, while Kelly cleaned up at the Quik Pro.

Weekend happenings//


+ Spent a sunny Saturday morning at Bri and Joy’s annual yard sale.

+ An afternoon at Color Me Mine painting this delicate heart-shaped ring holder. Can’t wait to see how it turned out.

+ Falling deeper into the Apple cult: upgraded to the 5.

Other notes//

+ Burton US Open: Shaun White continues pipe domination as does the lovely Kelly Clark.

+ One of my bucket list items, the Iditarod, started yesterday. Long live Balto!

Have a great first week of March!
