Blogs I Follow

blogs

Catching up on the blogs I follow is somewhat of a morning ritual of mine, and at this point, I’ve got a good handful of sites that inspire me in different ways. I use Blogger to organize the blogs I follow, so that when I go on the site, I just have one central feed to look at that shows…

Blueprint Cleanse: My Experience

I’ve been wanting to do a juice cleanse for a while, and I’d read good things about Blueprint Cleanse, so when I got an e-mail with a 20% off promo code after Thanksgiving, I decided to give it a whirl.  There are 3 levels available, with 1 being for beginners and 3 being the most intense/”greenest”: I opted for the Level 2 cleanse since…

Last Friday evening, I ventured out to Frenchmen Street in search of a Valentine’s Day gift for my roommate’s boyfriend.  It was also a great excuse to visit my favorite cocktail spot in the Marigny neighborhood, Three Muses.  On Saturday I went to Krewe du Vieux, the first parade and perhaps the most free-spirited, tongue-in-cheek parade of the entire Carnival…

I had the most amazing week/end.  It’s been really nice to feel like I’m being productive and on top of things, and I’ve also been feeling much more social than usual.  I went and did some touristy things in the French Quarter on Saturday with one of my roommates (she’s from California and being a law student, hasn’t been able…

I was able to spend some time with my best friends from college this past weekend, and it was amazing.  I love how our time together seems to mean more with each passing year.  On the agenda this year:  our annual Secret Santa gift exchange, lots of good food, mani/pedis, eggnog daiquiris, gingerbread houses, a Saints game-day party, and a…

The Weekend, In Short

Last weekend I made the drive to Shreveport to see some of my oldest friends from college.  The weekend festivities included:  lots of quality time with my girlfriend Colleen‘s two little boys, finally getting the chance to eat at 2Johns Restaurant* in Bossier City (my friend Jess’s boyfriend owns this place, and it’s amazing!), drinks at Vintage Wine Bar, and…

Coconut-Lime Chicken Stew

This meal was, hands-down, the best thing I’ve had for dinner in a long time.  With the cooler temperatures brought on by the tropical storm last week, I really appreciated that it was a heavier meal than the summer has been calling for.  I can’t wait to make it more often as the colder weather approaches.     Coconut-Lime Chicken…
