Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Snapshots from the Week


I am so ready for this weekend. How about you guys? My husband had some very long hours this week, so we are definitely ready to relax and spend some time together. Here is a quick recap of last week and links to this week's new posts.



We started off with lunch at Abuelo's with a friend. Ken and I love Abuelo's. I'm sure I've posted about it several times before. It's pretty inside, and the food is amazing. I love their tomatillo-pineapple salsa, the charro beans, the fajitas, etc. There are some other great Mexican restaurants around town, but we like that Abuelo's is so close to Cinemark.


We'd wanted to see Rings but realized it wasn't out yet, and we can't quite buy into the hype of La La Land. I'm sure it's great and all but...



We went with Bye Bye Man for lack of better options, but I have to say, we were both very impressed with it. It's not just an okay horror film if you're in the mood for something scary...it's very good and definitely worth seeing in theaters. This weekend, however, Rings will be out!:)


Now about that new caramel corn recipe I promised last week...well, it's going to be more of a quick kettle corn recipe, because I realized after the blog post that I was out of brown sugar! There are tips and tricks and measurements (and I did take some pretty pics for a separate recipe post); but if you guys want a quick fix for the weekend, pop a bag of popcorn then melt a stick of butter. Drizzle the butter over the popped popcorn and toss with the sugar, and you've got a quick and yummy snack for family movie night or a Netflix binge. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!
