My Pinterest Paint Palette Page

Have you visited my pinterest page? Yes, I post a lot of stuff about food and such, but there are also some great posts for the house.  I have an awesome collection of color palettes so if you are looking to spruce up the paint in your home or office consider looking at one of the color combinations.

Groovy New Thai Restaurant Headed to Kensington – Ele Thai Cafe

By July 28, 2014 @ 9:22 am

Ele Thai Cafe is about to make its debut in Kensington!  Remember the little ice cream shop that didn’t make it, Sugar Cone Cafe?  The one on the corner of Boynton and Arlington?  This is where the cafe will open shop.

I ran into one of the owners yesterday and she said they are hoping to open next month.  They will have seating for 10 and offer delicious Thai food and ice cream in a quaint cafe setting.

Before and After Kitchen Ideas

By July 24, 2014 @ 10:40 am

Ok, one of my favorite sites for kitchen ideas is “the kitchn” – have you checked it out?  One of the great things is that they show a ton of before and after pics, and give inexpensive design solutions.  Many of the remodels are under $5,000.  WHAT???  Yup.  Gotta sell and your kitchen isn’t so hot?  Let’s look at the pics and come up with a plan.

I love this example, and all for $7,000.  Read about the remodel here: A Smart Kitchen Renovation for under $7000

Soft opening at the Westbrae Biergarten

By June 2, 2014 @ 10:30 am

I couldn’t make it to the soft opening at the Westbrae Biergarten so I sent my accomplices in crime: my husband and 2 daughters.

perfect night

 

First mistake my honey made: went too late.

Lines were very long, as expected.  (Although I guess he didn’t expect them to be)  Food took over an hour to get.  There were people everywhere.

Long lines + hungry girls + a lot of people didn’t make for a good time for my husband.

BUT I WOULD HAVE HAD A BLAST!!!!  Because this is what I was expecting:

lots of interested people + lots of hungry people + lots of thirsty people

Who wants to check it out with me???
