During our ride we stopped by my moms office to say hello- she took this photo before we dipped out.
While going through my daily "blog check" today I came across a lot of pictures that I find interesting, cool, beautiful, and wonderful in one way or another:
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend filled with delicious foods and fun times.
Be sure to check back for my next post - I'll be featuring a brand new recipe!
Let us begin...
I usually don't feature more than one artist during each post...but I decided it was more than necessary today, because I've been listening to these songs over and over again this week.
These two girls are my absolute favorite female artists - it's safe to say that I have a girl crush on the both of them.
I suggest you give them a listen.
(1) ST VINCENT – WHAT ME WORRY
This live version of "what me worry" is amazing - not to mention she is one of the most beautiful curly heads around.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Ellie is amazing. Beautiful voice – beautiful music. Makes me happy to be alive at this time in music history.

CHEFS WHO MAKE HOUSE CALLS
"On the counter in Jill Donenfeld's Malibu kitchen, just across Pacific Coast Highway from David Geffen's sprawling compound: leafy cilantro; wild arugula; portobello, shiitake and cremini mushrooms; a deep purple eggplant; silken organic tofu; gourmet olive oil; sea salt and a food processor. Donenfeld certainly knows her way around the kitchen — she's been a recipe tester, a sous-chef for a catering company and a cookbook author — but on this sunny afternoon she's not doing the cooking. Her "culinista" is.
Four years ago, 26-year-old Donenfeld founded a weekly home chef service called the Dish's Dish, which employs a stable of trained chefs, called culinistas (she's trademarked the word) to shop for, plan and prepare a variety of store-and-serve, mix-and-match meals for busy families and professionals in Los Angeles and New York City. The service made its bicoastal leap to L.A. a year ago.
There are other similar services, such as Rawvolution, Vegin' Out, Freshology, Sunfare and Susan's Healthy Gourmet, that will prepare this kind of food in advance and deliver it to your door. What sets Dish's Dish apart is its level of personalization. It doesn't just send food; it sends a chef who will create a menu based on your personal taste and health requirements, cook a week's worth of food for you, store it in Tupperware and leave it for you along with reheating instructions and nutritional information.
The cost is $300 per week, plus groceries, which, depending on the size of your family, generally adds an additional $70 to $170 per week. That's to say, this kind of attention to detail doesn't come cheap. And considering that the median weekly household income for residents living in Los Angeles County is just more than $1,000, according to the U.S. census, using a service like the Dish's Dish is, by any stretch of the imagination, a luxury.
