Nom Nom Paleo Launch Party Weekend

Heading to SF to celebrate the @nomnompaleo book release. Excited to see old friends and say cheers to all Michelle and Henry's hard work!!! (But first, COFFEE!)

We spent the weekend in San Francisco celebrating the launch of our friends Michelle + Henry’s gorgeous cookbook Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans. And if you can believe it, I am simultaneously more tired yet more refreshed than I was when we left.

The tired part is based solely on logistics. We dropped Buster off at Grandma’s Friday night so he could stay the weekend (and if you know anything about my mother, you know she fully spoils her “grand-dog” as she would a grandchild) so it was basically a trip to the Dog Spa. He spent lots of quality time getting massages, playing with toys, and cuddling up in his (ASPCA Approved!) dog blanket with his favorite Incredible Hulk toy. I think he may have been a bit sad to leave her house last night, and frankly I can’t blame him.


Saturday morning we got up bright and early and headed down to San Francisco to enjoy the big launch party and hang out with some of our favorite paleo pals. I’d give you a whole play by play of the adorably detailed (and ridiculously delicious) launch party, but Michelle’s post about it does such a good job there’s just no point rehashing. Seriously, you should totally go right over there to read it.

I have a lot of thoughts about what a great weekend this was, but I am staring down the barrel of a 5 day work week today (ugh, the first one in over a month! Way to go Christmas and New Years, screwing up my ability to be able to tolerate a 5 day work week!) and so I’m a bit pressed for time, but the cliffs notes are this: Beyond the glossy photos of a fun event, the Instagram opportunities, the novelty that is a whole room full of passionate Paleo lovers, and the opportunity to meet other like minded bloggers who love this hobby like I do — the thing that I think I am most grateful for about this weekend was the opportunity to connect with old friends and new. (So many good eggs in one room!)

He is one

I came home with a belly full of eats and drinks, memories of wonderful conversations, sage advice to chew on, funny stories to retell, and that wonderful warm feeling that comes with the perfect intersection of familiar and brand new. I came home grateful for everything that I have welcomed into my life since I started documenting my Paleo journey on this site and continue to feel excited about all the things to come in the future. Though I wasn’t curled up with an Incredible Hulk toy, when my head hit the pillow last night I was blissfully exhausted.

The bar has been set high for weekends in 2014.

  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
