ahh now how much cuter can you get. the boys snoozin away just makes my heart smile.


here in the finn household we've been on a soup binge. the funny thing is it's like summer weather here. i guess the internal winter clock is more powerful than mother earths unfortunate global warming. so the all time new favorite is chicken pozole. it is hands down delishousness. it's the kinda soup that you don't get sick of. my friend jackie just gave me a book of 400 soups so it looks like the soup binge will continue.

playing frisbee is serious business. you have to practice, practice, practice.


sunday morning the finn and i decided to get up super duper early and hike down to the beach before the sun was up. the night before was the full moon and it was still up and huge. never would i have imagined getting up so early on purpose and to top it off it was my idea. there must be something in the tofu i'm eating. that was a lame attempt at a funny.

the love of my life. the thing is it just keeps getting better. who knew?


that this is real. oh wait it is. this place exists and is full of magic. my dad and peter and i were taken on a magical adventure with our navajo guide. it was something special.



the indian taco has long been a favorite of mine. i remember the first time i tasted the fried taco goodness. there was no looking back. my life would forever be changed. the only down side to the indian taco is that i've never encountered it anywhere outside of the southwest. maybe this should be viewed as a good thing? i might be eating indian tacos everyday if i could order one at the taco truck that's around the corner. in that case i might turn into an indian taco or worse, get sick of them.

el rancho

view from our table at the el rancho restaraunt. "home to the stars". excellent green and red chili or should i say "christmas stylee". my parents always know the good spots, even when you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

pink and green

on the way to taos to watch a turtle dance at the pueblo on new years. wozers that was a mouth full. this is my idea of awesomeness. i love love love the use of color and images.

middle of somewhere


riley is the best kissing monster ever. i thought this vintage dog scarf (it belonged to my first dog ayers) was perfect for him.
turns out he loves scarves. it was pretty chilly on our trip so riri kept warm and fashionable in his kisses scarf. he's juat so damn cute.

roadtrip 2008-2009

after christmas the parents, husband, dogs and i went on a southwest roadtrip. first stop canyon de shelly. a place i haven't been to since i was a kid. it was more awesome then i remember.

my future door

my new hobby is to take photos of things that i one day hope to be in my home. it's part of my other new hobby which is manifesting my destiny. ohh wait that's an old hobby. anywho, this door was in gallop, new mexico at the el rancho hotel. the food was super delish and the decor was just right.
