I read because I must. It's like breathing to me. And I love talking about books. But I'm also an Arsenal fan, a wine drinker, a music lover and weirdly obsessed with pop culture. I mostly blog about books, but sometimes about things I'm thinking or doing. When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

I’ve taken advantage of the pre-made  roasted chicken from my Whole Foods, and their salad bar.  I […]

Whole 30, Day 5 and 6

Pool party success! Cook out success!  Two events yesterday that could have been terrible pitfalls, but all worked out well. I planned ahead. I had lots of sparkling water on hand. I took foods that I could eat. I focused on the socializing and not the food. I didn’t miss the booze.  I haven’t wanted […]

Whole 30, Days 3 and 4

So, I forgot to post yesterday.  Oops. Making up for that now.  Day 3 (Friday) really wasn’t all that bad. I think I mentioned before that I work from home, so it makes it a lot easier to not be tempted. My neighbors invited me over for Pizza Friday that evening, so I made sure […]
