The Legwarmers

After years of hearing about how totally awesome 80's tribute band The Legwarmers are, we finally went. I think it's so much fun to "dress up". And how often does that happen when it's not Halloween?  Not very often.

Beet Treat

I've been diggin' beets lately. Not only are they tasty but they provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. What could be better! I've also recently learned you can throw beet greens into the juicer, for more bang for your buck.

One of my favorite local restaurants, Maple Ave has a fantastic Organic Beet Salad. While you're there try the Dr Pepper Short Ribs and Peach Saketini. Yum!

Another tasty beet treat I've been enjoying is Tera brand Sweets & Beets chips. After being fried, dried and salted, they probably don't have the nutritional kick that fresh beets contain but they're "all natural" and I'd like to think a better option than your standard white potato chip. I like to crunch them into little pieces and throw them into a salad.

Beet appetit!

I Guess You'll Do

This is great - in a sad but true kind of way. Also reinforces reason #276 as to why I am so sick of Facebook — "I'm planning my wedding!", "We're buying a house", "I'm effing pregnant" uuuggh! Yet I keep coming back more...

Today Is My Birthday

My lovely lady co-workers surprised me with festive desk decorations, yummy cupcakes and a pretty plant. It's nice to have great office mates!

We celebrated a bit over the weekend too and I'm feeling a little tired today. I am listening to Agnes Obel, which has been just right for my relaxed mood.

Later this evening I will enjoy some wine and accoutrements at the Wine House in Fairfax. Couldn't ask for more.
