All rise…

Written by , Posted in beer, football, love, recipe

CAPES [something empowering] Power tends to cause suffering. Love absorbs it (Phillip Yancey).

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Forget the yeast, adding a bottle of your favorite beer in its place not only causes bread to rise, but makes it quite flavorful as well.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] All Black Everything! UW plays Arizona in a “lights-out” night game tomorrow night, wearing black from helmet to cleats. It will be hard to find me in the stands of all the fans in black, but I’ll be standing next to two good looking people in red (just don’t judge them for the colors they wear).

pumped up kicks

Written by , Posted in shopping

CAPES [something empowering] Laugh so you don’t cry (sometimes, this works…thanks Andy Davis, and Roomie-room-room-room).

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] I’ve done the legwork, Ciao Bella boots are wear-all-day-long comfortable, Frye boots are unique and stylish, and Hunter wellies are Seattle-rain-friendly. I’ve got my pumped up kicks and I’m ready for fall.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I love this over-priced item in orange. And I’ll dream about it upon my wrist until I can find it on eBay.

There’s no weakness in forgiveness.

CAPES [something empowering] Forgiving someone doesn’t make you weak. There’s no weakness in forgiveness.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Modcloth has fun vintage, indie clothes. The site also gives you the freedom to order a few sizes at once, because whatever you don’t keep you can ship back for free. Love that.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I just got this picture printed on a canvas. Thanks Groupon!

Pass the juice, please.

Written by , Posted in health and beauty

CAPES [something empowering] Reconcile anger, bitterness, and any feelings that turn your insides ugly. But don’t feel the need to reconcile relationships that were unhealthy to begin with.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Earlier this year, I blogged about the joys of henna hair dye. But when this brunette tried to turn herself into a blond-bombshell, she turned green with envy. Henna may be natural, but the levels of natural toxins can be quite unpredictable. Proceed use with caution. My new trend is to toss the henna, and stick with Aveda Clove Conditioner.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] A fitness blog I follow likened juice to candy bars, warning to limit your intake of the caloric-liquidy-goodness. So, with moderation I will drink juice and eat candy bars…but my philosophy is “everything in moderation…including moderation”.
