Hunger Games Treasure Hunt

An awesome treasure hunt that slowly (and to the hunter’s surprise) devolved into a bloodthirsty Hunger Games style fight to the death.

Dress-up for New Years

Somehow I was convinced to wear this most outrageous dress for New Years—but I ended up liking it! We silver-leafed some of my old shoes and even my fingernails to match the silver spikes.

Harvest Festival

Our 2nd Annual Harvest Festival (or Feast-ival) was a success. Pot-luck style, we had an early Thanksgiving-but-with-friends dinner that was absolutely delicious!

The Freemont Diner

I was just in Sonoma for a good 3 weeks, and there was one article in Sunset magazine (which I now am a full enthusiast for) about a cute little eatery called the Freemont Diner …

Flour fighting

Inspired by the Hindu holiday Holi, some friends and I decided it’d be fun to have a mini flour-fight.  It turned out to be a surprisingly simple, fun and super cheap way to have a laugh, …

Foraging for food

Last weekend was an epic adventure into the wilderness to forage for food (led by a professional nature guide guy). It turns out there are a surprising number of edible (and nutritious!) plants in the …

Succulent acquisition

One of my new favorite activities is succulent acquisition.  In case you aren’t “in the know” about succulents, they’re wonderful type of plant that retains water and thus doesn’t need to be given much care. …
