Hello, lovely...

Welcome to my site where I explore topics on life, love, culture and everything in between. I hope you find something here that inspires you, that makes you laugh, that gives you hope, or that helps you reflect.  Have a nice stay and come back often!

Monday Obsessions: Pandora, Peanut Butter and More...

Monday Obsessions: Pandora, Peanut Butter and More...

Mondays are often tough to get into.  If you are spending your morning surfing the net, reading the news (and hopefully perusing this site), here are a few things I am obsessed with today that are worth looking into. Maybe they will be new obsessions for you, or maybe they will just give you a good chuckle to help you get into the swing of this week.  Regardless, I wish you nothing but the best this week.  May you become obsessed with something that makes you smile!

Obsession #1:  Pandora: Yacht Rock

In doing research for an article on dinner parties, I came across a Pandora station that has quickly become a "thing" in our house:  Yacht Rock.  Imagine sitting on a fancy yacht in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea with Hall & Oates, The Eagles, and Fleetwood Mac.  There you have it.  Hours upon hours of perfectly curated smooth rock classics.  Give it a try - I guarantee you will feel a world away.  I'm glad I took my own advice!

Obsession #2: The Bulk Nut Butter Aisle at Whole Foods.

I may or may not have forced the Hubby out of the house for a late night trip to Whole Foods ONLY to get fresh ground peanut butter.  I like everything about this aisle - it's organized, provides a variety of bulk items, and there are lots of buttons to press!  I get an odd pleasure out of turning on the machine and grinding my own peanuts into fresh peanut butter.  I will be back this week...

Obsession #3: This story on motorized bikes enhancing the sport of road racing.

Rarely are there things that cause my jaw to drop to the floor.  When I saw this story preview, I knew I needed to see more.  Check it out and then look up the entire 60 Minutes story. Prepare for your mind to be blown.  Who doesn't love a good conspiracy theory?

Have a great week!!
