  1. Oh, FINALLY with those stupid sell by labels. If it’s moldy, dump it. If it’s stinky, dumparoo. If it’s two days past the date stamped on the lid, do not dump it! Drives me crazy.

  2. Since you love donuts….Marie’s donuts is amazing (get the blueberry). Bacon and Butter has an indulgent breakfast, great mexican food at Zocalo, Ella has a great happy hour, Kru for sushi!

  3. If you are a cheesecake fan go to Sellands (in Sacramento) and have their cheesecake…it is light and creamy, pure decadence. They also have delicious pizzas and salads. 

  4. I like the ruffle trend this spring too! I just bought Lands’ End’s women’s flounce sleeve top in white. I’m not ready for spring yet, but my clothes will be.
