Today I went the extra mile to prove to my husband that I do in fact love him. We went, and I’m not kidding, to the Street League Skateboarding Championship at the Sprint Center. Skateboarding.

Last night I was under the influence, of Martha Stewart. And when you are in this condition meals like cottage pie come out of it. It’s a lot like shephard’s pie, but instead of mashed potatoes, they are sliced thinly and roasted on top of the seasoned meat. You can clearly see how this turned […]
