Sunsets and Sun Salutations

Our weekend wrapped up with a breathtaking sunset to appreciate.  
 And while I am in the appreciation mode, I am thankful for yoga.  For challenging my body in new ways and cleansing my mind in others. 
  Here, we are in a private session with our favorite instructor out at Bondi Beach.  Yes, practicing yoga in public.  Add that to my list of "never before's".  I enjoyed it so much, though, that I don't think it will be my last.  So, the next time you see some "hippie weirdo" doing yoga at the beach, think of me..and know that we all have it in us.  It's just a matter of letting go and allowing yourself to be :)
 Teddy's first walk across the Harbour Bridge! Loving the breeze and sunshine..
I love taking advantage of all the events Sydney has to offer!  This month is the International Food Festival and the Night Noodle Markets in Hyde Park.  Think prawn dumplings, spring rolls, duck noodles, bbq pork buns, and strawberry & lime cider. I had so much fun with a girlfriend and her friend one night, that I brought R back with me the next!  Safe travels to my friend who will be joining her husband in Boston for the next month or so.
Saturday afternoon at the Paddington Markets.  Eclectic and cute.  Topped it all off with a cheese platter and walk through the neighborhood.
This spot along the harbor is on our daily walking trail with Teddy.  We like that he makes us more active together. The weather has warmed up nicely and we spend as much time as possible on our deck reading, eating, or just thinking.  We still haven't noticed a difference without central AC, but we are nervous for summer.
On Sunday afternoon, we treated ourselves to a "Gold Class" seat to watch the movie Argo.  We all really enjoyed the highly rated film and thought it was worth the reclining seats and waiters.  

This week in the kitchen:
Chicken Parmesan Dippers with whole wheat pasta and Marinara sauce.  (I would cut the sugar in half).
Alfredo Chicken, Vegetable, and Rice Bake. (I used the leftover chicken parmesan dippers).
Thought for food was a Steak Salad with avocado, lime, onion, tomato, cilantro, and crispy corn tortilla strips on top. Gluten free!
Cool Dude.


  1. You guys are having so much fun! I love it! Love that picture of Teddy at the end! :) Cheese platters. Dang girl! Livin' the life! :)

  2. Yoga and dog walks? Just when you think you've found a good food blog, the author goes all off topic on you.
