Music Monday

December 6, 2010

What a difference a week makes! I’m feeling so much better – the result of a lot of hard work and a heckuva lot of support from you fine folks.

This weekend was super-productive. A quick rundown:



  • moved the furniture around
  • created a bar area in the kitchen for espresso machine and barware
  • moved the desk out (!)
  • moved the bookshelves around


  • went grocery shopping
  • made un-frozen dinners to take to work this week (cooked quinoa, roasted veggies, and sauteed chicken to be portioned out each day)
  • signed up for a trial gym membership (where I can take yoga and pilates and hula-hooping and… )
  • made my mom’s New Mexican red chile sauce and fry bread tacos (videos to come soon!)
  • made lovely cocktails and bunuelos with the leftover fry bread

The cocktail I made was called a White Lady (it’s named after a rose). It’s really simple and delicious – I used 1 1/2 ounces Tru organic gin, 1 ounce Paula’s Texas Orange, and 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice. Shake it up with ice and strain, then drink away!

All in all, a great weekend.

These songs have me dancing a jig. Hopefully they’re jig-worthy to you, too.

D-Sisive – I Love a Girl

Lykke Li – Let It Fall

Winter Gloves – Strange Love

Happy Monday!
