Tortilla Bar 1

So you may have noticed that I didn’t host the Finding the Pretty  & Delicious Linky Party this weekend.  I was a little busy this weekend.  I flew to Utah on Wednesday to participate in the Roots Tech/Story@Home Conference that was happening in Salt Lake City. I was able to attend some of the wonderful classes that were offered and I was privileged to be able to be one of the presenters too.  My presentation was on Thursday afternoon and was entitled Life is in the Details.  I talked about [Continue Reading…]

Home Sweet Home! Posting has been a bit light this week because I spent the last 10 days in Utah enjoying the company of my four kids and other family members (Thank you Emily and Wynn for putting up with me that long!!)  Tessa and I are home now and I’m glad to be sleeping in my own bed.  Didn’t realize how much I missed green. When we pulled into the driveway after our long drive this is what we found! How cute is that !  Jim worked hard while [Continue Reading…]

Remember, this blog is about all the things I love. One of them is where I live – Portland, Oregon.  Each Saturday I share one of my favorite places to eat, see or play in Portland.

As I mentioned yesterday, I spent the majority of this last week in Provo, Utah visiting my three kids that live there. Every time I visit I have my list of places to eat. I must always get my Cafe Rio fix!  I did that as usual but I also look forward to finding some new places to try out. For my Utah readers I thought I’d share where we went and what we ate. Tuesday, Cali got done with school early so I picked her up for lunch.  Logan [Continue Reading…]

Note:  This post is mainly for my Provo, Utah Valley friends and readers but you may all enjoy taking a look at all the good eating I did this weekend! I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend this past week with these three pretty amazing people!  Thanks to Wynn and Emily for letting me stay with them. I miss those faces so much!!  I flew to Provo so that I could attend Cali’s dance performance.  She was in the Faculty Choreography Show. My kids love it when mom [Continue Reading…]
