Lots of seafood ahead… But first, these bunnies! I picked them up at Home Goods as an effort to add some Easter-ish decor and they look just like the foil-covered chocolate bunnies.

Hiiii. How’s your Monday going? We’ve had a lovely morning. Still tons of rain, a sweaty BODYPUMP class, and Livi’s gymnastics class, which is one of my favorite things ever.  So, there are a few customs I wish the US would adopt. #1: the siesta. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE A NATIONAL SIESTA? My family is […]
