Things I Like

Tell me that clock isn’t awesome. I dare you. What an amazing use of vintage records. At about $42 USD, I am not sure I can justify it as a whimsical purchase, but I do love it. Check out the site for other phenomenal designs.

My Milk Toof is a site that uses baby teeth as comedy. It is ridiculous but I love it. All of the shots are so well-styled & I smile while reading each one.

Check out this awesome graffiti proposal. I am completely digging the artistry & letting kids be involved in the piece. Additionally, the couple looks so happy, and I am a sucker for happy, recently engaged couples.

I have made these four times now because they are so delicious & easy. I cannot recommend them enough. Perhaps when I am not gorging myself, I’ll make a post about different variations, etc. but currently that simple recipe & the suggestions in the comment on Epicurious are enough to lead you to total breakfast domination.

Vacation Makes Me Lazy

The more time off I have, the less I seem to write. It seems incomprehensible that I make time to write when I’m busy & don’t bother when I’m free, but there you have it. I’m “a paradox, wrapped inside and enigma, wrapped inside a puzzle, that is a mystery.” Or, in more probable terms, I am lazy.

I’ve had three weeks of vacation (and yes, I do understand how lucky I am to have a teacher’s vacation schedule), and this has been my schedule:

  • spend time with my husband
  • volunteer at my local theatre
  • cook for my husband (who so often cooks for me)
  • try recipes I’ve been meaning to make for some time
  • volunteer at my local library
  • take day trips
  • spend a day with each of my sisters & my niece
  • tutor
  • sleep in
  • finish unpacking / clean the new house (this is more of a “to do” than an “already done”)
  • spend more time with my husband

All in all, I haven’t done anything life-shattering, but I have spent time with loved ones & doing things I love, so I think I’m coming out on top overall.
