This 14-Year-Old’s Homework Assignment Sparked A Mission to Feed America’s Hungry (4:47)


This story should make you feel good and give you faith in humanity, but honestly, it makes me sad knowing that at the same time  governments are wasting millions of dollars on wars, killing equipment and surveillence.  In what kind of world are we living? Please focus on the bright side..!      (Originally posted on )

Pre-travel takeout dinner from Daily Dose Grill: vegetable nicoise salad with salmon.  Andrew and I always eat from Daily Dose but it was my first time trying this salad and I think it’s my new favorite!  I ordered it without the dressing and made my own.  But the salmon was on POINT.  If you’re from the Scottsdale, Arizona area and ever eat here, definitely try this.  It’s delish.


We also ordered mac and cheese from Daily Dose to share.  Healthy eating is all about balance right??


I spent Saturday night in San Francisco for my friend Kelly’s birthday party.  We boozed it up college-style and had a little house party.  Girls nights are the best!


The ladies 🙂  Here is living proof that I actually party sometimes.

Dinner and drinks at Betelnut in San Francisco with my best friend Nat.  Pretty sure it’s my new favorite restaurant.  Their cocktails are on POINT.

Betelnut eats: kale salad, Schezuan green beans (one of my favs…pretty sure I single-handedly took down 75% of this plate), and chicken fried rice.  All to die for.

BUT definitely the best thing we ordered at Betelnut: the chicken dumplings.  O-M-G these things were INSANE.

Sunday morning brunch at The Grove.  One of our go-to brunch spots.  I ordered the bacon and cheddar scramble with avocado.  It was amazing and the best hangover cure.  And believe me, I needed a hangover cure.  Mama can’t party like she used to.


We walked back after brunch and stopped to take in the views (and pictures, obviously).  San Francisco is actually the prettiest city on Earth.  I know I always annoyingly gush about San Francisco but when you have this view every day…I MEAN COME ON.

Fall is starting to show it’s colors here in Norcal.  It’s been a late start and our Indian summer definitely lasted way longer than expected.  But the leaves are finally turning color and it’s making me super happy.

I hope you all have a happy Monday!!! xoxoxo
