  • Utah still has a ton of snow so I went skiing yesterday. Why not? It was awesome!
  • Today is Maxwell’s last day of preschool. Crazy he will be in kindergarten next year.
  • It was fun watching the Curry brothers play against each other. Glad the Warriors are moving on to the finals! I hope the team is healthy soon.
  • This is a cool gadget.


  • New this week, our favorite pizza dough and pizza sauce! Homemade pizza is the BEST!
  • I was in LA last week for work and didn’t have time to do a lot, but I did make time for Salt & Straw. I love their ice cream! Did you know they have a new cookbook? NEED so I can make ice cream ALL the time!

  1. Hello! I live in El Paso, and it is so great that you are coming to visit our beautiful city! I would suggest making sure you make a stop on Scenic Drive! The views are difficult to beat of both our city and Mexico. L&J’s has the best Mexican food, I think. We have some new places that are worth checking out too. Salt and Honey and Savage Goods are relatively new and deliciously local (wonderful for brunch). Ardovino’s Desert Crossing is outside of town, but is delicious with a side of beautiful scenery. Also, feel free to hike our beautiful mountains (I didn’t even know there were mountains in TX until I moved here), but watch out for snakes! Hope you enjoy your time here!
