I have an addiction....

I just can't stop eating them. 
But we'll get to that later, I've got a few other gems for you from this delightful weekend of mine first!

First up is Thrift Shop Friday at work!
Yes, I am wearing a fur vest, a bugs bunny tie, and harem pants all in one outfit. 
But seriously, why can't harem pants be a thing again- SO comfortable!

Saturday morning was a family bike ride to downtown Saratoga, where we met the cutest poodle! Her name was Bisou, which means kiss in French, probably because she wouldn't stop giving them!

In the afternoon, I randomly proposed a trip to Sprinkles Cupcakes in Palo Alto, about a 20 minute drive, and to my surprise, we went!
They are $3.50 each and DEFINITELY worth all the hype. 
Clockwise, the flavors are banana, salted caramel, red velvet, lemon blueberry, black and white, and coconut.
Haven't tried all of them yet, but the red velvet is my favorite by far!
Have you ever been to Sprinkles? What do ya'll think of the whole cupcake fad going on? 
Does anyone watch Cupcake Wars? LOVE. 

Sunday afternoon was another bike ride, this time with my food and fitness buddy Gauri! This was definitely a much needed catch-up since we last saw each other two weeks ago. 
Never mind the fact that we text on a daily basis. 
We went up to this GORGEOUS place in Saratoga called Villa Montalvo. 

On to my little problem.

So much goodness this weekend. 
Plain ol' strawberries, two strawberry spinach salads, and a delicious strawberry mug cake. 
Please please please follow my new food Instagram @healtherrific! If you love food, and I know you do, because everyone loves food, you're bound to enjoy it. 
I promise I eat foods other that strawberries!
What are your summer addictions? I don't know, something about summer just says "fruit" to me!

Linking up with Sarah and Shanna!


  1. Thrift shop Friday??!?!? That sounds fabulous!!! I wish we had one of those. Also, I'm addicted to strawberries too... Or just any kind of berry!

  2. I love strawberries, After cherries they are my fav food, If I were you I wouldn't even stop trying to eat them lol. Better than having an addiction to potato chips lol

    1. I know, they're amazing, right? I guess there could be worse addictions! Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I was stopping by and returning the comment love you showed on my blog. You crack me up about the cupcakes! I too love cupcakes. I used to have a cupcake business before I had kids. I miss baking, it was a blast. Thanks again for stopping by

  4. Great pictures! Looks like you had a fun week. That poodle is so cute. Her name fits perfectly. I'm not a big strawberry fan...I'd take the cupcakes though!

    Style of One's Own

    PS- You asked about where I find my colored blazers... I am a big fan of Forever 21, H&M, and Express for blazers. Good luck in your hunt! :)
