Grilled Cheese Party

Cheese please!! When Président Cheese approached me about reinventing a classic cheese dish for their new digital showcase “Art of Cheese“, I jumped at the chance to host a Grilled Cheese party. I’ve been wanting to plan a party like this for a while, so it was fun to actually make it happen. My friend Andrea came up with 4 easy grilled cheese recipes that we served to our guests. But, it would also be fun to mix and match the toppings and cheeses and get creative with the recipes! For more fun recipes and entertaining ideas, make sure you check out the Art of Cheese website. Right now they’re hosting a special Pinterest Sweepstakes where you could win $50 worth of their cheese varieties. What’s your favorite kind of grilled cheese sandwich?

Spring Home Shopping

Every spring, I love buying a few special pieces to spruce up my house. I’ve found some awesome things online this past week. In past posts,  I’ve shared that I’ve been using the website Chippmunk when I purchase any clothes online. But I was so excited to discover that they also have great deals at home interior stores! Basically, before I buy anything online I check for store coupons on Chippmunk. They have exclusive coupons for tons of retailers. They also post links to stores that are having good sales. Chippmunk has really changed the way I shop online (and has saved me tons of money on things I’d already be buying.) Here are a few things I’d love to add to our home this spring! (PS – Awesome coupons at West ElmCB2Anthropologie & Serena & Lily!)

Clothes to Party In No. 10

I mentioned them before but I’ve been using the website Chippmunk for my online shopping. It’s a savings search engine. Basically, they rank online coupons and deals so that you can see how much you’ll save at each store. When I’m shopping I see which of my favorite stores are having sales. Or, if I find a piece I love, I can search Chippmunk to find coupons that apply to that purchase. It’s awesome! Here are my favorites I’ve been eyeing this week.

My Perfect Moment in Hawaii

Hawaii is one of my favorite places to vacation. My first time was about five years ago when Paul attended a photography workshop there. To be honest, I had avoided going there before that because in my mind I thought it was going to be touristy and boring (compared to an international trip.) As we explored all the remote parts of the islands I soon realized how wrong I was. It felt exotic like an international trip and there was so many new things to discover but my cell phone still worked! We still had all the conveniences of America like everyone speaking English and not having to exchange money. Now we try to go once a year since we usually find amazing deals out of San Francisco. The pictures below are from one of my favorite experiences. After a long morning hike we went to Waimea Bay in the afternoon to lay on the beach and go swimming. I saw a bunch of people cliff jumping and decided to go. I climbed up to the top of the rock and looked around and the sun was setting and the crystal blue water was down below and the air felt warm. It was perfect! After I jumped I swam out a little in the water and realized I was swimming with a bunch of sea turtles! It was magical and one of those experiences I will never forget.

Healthy Snacks

Plenty of sweets come through our offices on a regular basis (it’s an occupational hazard of working here) and it’s nice to have other alternatives to choose when the cupcakes are out on the counter.  NatureBox recently approached us about trying out their service that brings healthy snacks directly to your doorstep. You can choose the snacks that come in your box, but all of their products are made with wholesome ingredients and are Nutritionist-approved. That means: no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, no trans fats, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial flavors, and no artificial colors. We’ve been keeping them in an easy to reach spot and it’s been such a life saver during our work days – especially when we’re tempted to stray from our healthy habits. We LOVE the Lemon Pucker Pistachios (so good!) but the Dark Cocoa Almonds have been disappearing quickly too. NatureBox has a variety of sizes at different price points so there’s an option for everyone. And right now, they are offering 50% off the first box for Oh Happy Day readers (that means the box is only $10!) Just use the code HAPPYDAY when you sign up. (Valid only on 1st month’s box. New customers only.) A subscription for healthy snacks? What a good idea! Thanks NatureBox.
