Our weekends are the best. This one included yardwork, bread making, and lots of laughing.
We were sitting on the back porch, staining pieces of wood for a project. The mosquitoes were eating us alive. We were talking about everything and nothing, and about how lucky we are to have each other. Sometimes I think about how we will someday look back on our newlywed days, and it will be the little moments like that we will remember.
I basically avoided almost all computers this weekend. It was nice. We spent the weekend watching football, eating, napping, and sewing/working. It was thunderstorming up a storm, so it made for a cozy weekend at home eating lots of banana bread.
My one unpleasant task was cleaning out the pantry cupboard (the pantry moths have been upgraded to enemy number one status). But it did make me smile when I found all these cans of tuna fish. My guy sneaks one or two in the cart whenever we go grocery shopping, just in case.
Like farm to table, except it started as a pin… get it??
Here are some of my recipe pins that I am excited to try soon. Quinoa and blueberries for breakfast. Sweet and salty bagels. Shrimp and grits. Gluten-free almond coconut cookies. Let me know what you are cooking up this weekend!
PS: I just hit 2,000 pins this morning! How exciting for me!
Double PS: Isn’t it the worst when you see something, and it leads to nowhere? I assure you that all pins that I can remember have been tried and tested.
Its finally summer weather here in Austin. The all-encompassing heat has returned. I will miss the spring, and having to wonder if I needed a light jacket in the morning. From now on, I know that it will always be hot. But I am thankful for the sun, which I hope will give my skin enough color so I don’t blend in with my wedding dress.
Every weekend, I say that I am going to hem these 4 pairs of pants (because I am tiny). Yesterday, I finally sat down and did it. There is something very freeing about changing up clothes, probably because it feels like you shouldn’t be cutting or sewing them. I even hemmed some bright pink-orange pants with turquoise thread.
But wait for the best part! I found a pair of pants that the cut was a little out of style, but the top still fit great. So I cut them into jean shorts! Most gratifying project I have done in a long time, since it was 75 degrees and sunny yesterday, so I got to wear them while we ran a couple errands in the afternoon.
My 6-year-old self really wants to decorate them with puff paint, like the awesome shorts I had back in the day…
How wonderful December begins on a weekend? My fiance (!!) and I will be setting up our tree and making some ornaments. I am also planning on making a pie, that I will force on everyone that comes to visit us. Visitors beware!
Spending the weekend before Halloween eating treats and watching movies with my boy. (card from here)
