  • I’ve been researching how to develop workout programs to put on muscle, and came across Adam Bornstein’s site, Born Fitness. I can’t recommend it enough, he has a gift for taking science-based research and translating it into actionable strategies.
  • Undated Passion Planners are on sale right now, perfect time to snap one up if you’re thinking about experimenting with how you schedule/organize your time.
  • I had a taste of what it would be like to commute to work on a plane this week, flying in and out of town on the same day, and I wished I had read this article first. I had Tip 7 down, but completely failed at Tip 6, eating once at 530am, and not again until 630pm.

  • Although I think there’s always room for improvement, I would have thought it impossible to make this recipe even more perfect. Tried it out this week, and, turns out, it’s possible.
  • I’ve never picked up quilting as a hobby, but I came across this pattern in a store with my mom recently and am thinking about giving it a shot. Brigitte Heitland’s patterns are beautiful, modern, happy.
  • Tried Warehouse 23, a new restaurant in Vancouver, WA, this week. My fave dish of the night? The knife and fork chowder, so yummy. Most interesting event of the night? The random man who leaped off the edge of the restaurant into the Columbia River below. He was just fine after his adventure, albeit possibly a bit cold.
