KK's Bro, making her proud

Remember KK? Yeah, me too - like every day.

Well she's not the only stud in her family. Check out her baby bro, featured on the Today Show, nbd. 

Petit Bateau

I spoke too soon. Look here, a photo of Annie. Straight chillin' on the back of the boat while P tubes. 

WKF has started the season strong, and seems to love waterskiing as much as his father...

Keeping things interesting, beyond tubing and skiing, Uncle Amen stepped in and taught him to surf...

turn the music up for this one...

Ding Dong

Hear that? It's one of my favorite sounds. The dinner bell.

Last weekend, I ate beautifully. Taking photos of your food may be uncool (such a funny link)...but sometimes you just have to...

Working lunch at Cheese and Crack. What did I love more, the name of the restaurant, the tray situation, the homemade crackers, cornichons, the colors, or the spoonful of chocolate ganache with sea salt??? I can't even answer that. 
That lunch was a tough act to follow, but an oyster dinner party did the trick. My friend E drove to the coast Friday to pickup freshies. So good. 
Always order pizza by color
Yummy treats from Annie, who was with us for the past week, but somehow didn't get photographed

Photos du Jour

WKF is a serious dude most of the time. I love when he gets silly.
It's only wednesday, but I can't wait to be wearing my weekend sweatshirt (new momiform) again in a few days. Ideally I wear it on a bike with my people.
I love this shot. My pro dairy sweatshirt and the background jug of regular milk are at odds with the almond milk in my hand.
Mimi, remember that time we took the train to Seattle? Yeah, me too, Beycause it was really fun. We all need more train travel in our lives, for real.
Bey inspired home decor. #iwokeuplikethis
Fresh polish is always a good feeling
My HS reunion is in a few weeks, but this mini version with the always fabulous stephmodo was pretty fun. PS she was voted "most feminine" in high school - so funny (and pretty appropriate). 
Finally - PSA: give yourself a break with skinny jeans and go for boyfriend jeans. It is freeing. Not sure what took me so long to jump onto this wagon but I'm not sure I can go back. Although looking at this photo, maybe I should...

Urban Pooches

Check out this dog park we spotted from our hotel room in Seattle


I'm on a reading tear lately.

I have recently read or am currently reading all of these:

I am only about a third done with Shoe Dog, and I am loving it. If only one nugget from Shoe Dog sticks with me it will be this bit, from page 117. As Phil (Buck) is explaining his reasons for leaving a stable job at the accounting firm to pursue his shoe dreams, he says: "I wanted what everyone wants. To be me, full time." So true.

I also have my eye on this one,

as a lovely balance to how wrapped up I got in this one
And this looks like a good summer read

Run With Me, Seattle


You know that feeling when you turn on Bloomberg news and see one of your Amsterdam besties being all expert wizard and hair blowout? I didn't either, until I did. CP, you are a boss. 


I'd use any excuse for a train ride to Seattle and some time with great girlfriends. Beyonce is a very solid one. As expected, Bey rocked our world. This sweet getaway was time and money well spent. 

He Remembers

It is rare that WKF communicates through art, but this piece tells me he remembers Amsterdam. So do I.

Date Night

We switched things up for a recent date night. I went out with P and O was with W.

P and I hit the nickel arcade - her idea. It was weird and wonderful.
Speaking of weird and wonderful...when I was still in Ams, I heard about PREAM, and knew I had to get there ASAP. It took me longer than it should have to check it out, but I was not disappointed. A pizza joint inspired by the Wu Tang Clan...what is not to love. PREAM stands for pizza rules everything around me. Oh portland, why are you so so cool? Cool vibe was high, in a great way. Loved it. 

Meanwhile, at the Moda Center, the boys had a terrible time at the Trailblazers playoff game. W wasn't into it at all...
