Once again, it has been quite a while since I last posted... Just not sure what to write about anymore... but then one of my favorite bloggers, Anne, mentioned that she would be doing a "currently" blog link up.  And I thought that would be an easy one to jump on board with.  Except that writing takes time and I used all of mine on the actual day of the link up writing and visiting with out of town guests.

cooking: I may be a bit obsessed with this vinaigrette.  I made my monthly stop at Trader Joe's a couple weeks ago and this was what they were sampling on some shredded cabbage. So I keep buying bags of cabbage and throwing some grilled chicken on there.  Noms.

reading:  The Quarter Acre Farm by Spring Warren.  I borrowed this book from the library last summer... it is hilarious and very helpful with my own gardening trials.  This mom was genius to write a book about turning her small yard into a garden to feed her family for a year.  Even if it meant eating zucchini every meal for weeks.  I didn't finish reading it so picked it up again last week.  

wearing:  Flip-flops.  After being banned from wearing open-toed shoes for the past 4 years because of my lab job, I have having a hard time remembering that it is ok for me to do this now.  Oh how my toes have missed the sun!

loving:  These two ladies.  Meet Lyndsey and Eliza.  It took almost a year, but thanks to the church nursery, I have found a pretty awesome friend that lives really close to us. She has a pretty adorable little girl whom Myles is loving to get to play with each week.  And I finally have someone to enjoy my Dunkin Donuts coffee obsession with.  And she proved herself to be a bit of a yard-saling lucky charm last week.  Pretty stoked about these two!

anticipating:  home-grown tomatoes.  Summer is about the only time that I eat tomatoes... not just because they are expensive at the grocery, but because the ones at the store have  no flavor.  Can't wait for some fresh veggies!


  1. Trader Joe's is smart with those samples - I buy pretty much everything I try. Haven't tried this one yet but it sounds great. And so does that book! I want to be better at growing veggies (I'm so bad that the thing that everyone says they have coming out their ears - zucchini - has never produced a single edible item in my yard in about 3 years of trying), and it sounds like a fun read too, so I'm going to check it out. Excited about your new friend(s) too!

    Thanks so much for linking up - good to hear what you've been up to.

  2. I love, love, love home grown tomatoes! It was my first time growing them last year and I just bought my new plant this year :) Can't wait to see some blooms!

  3. I LOVE that vinaigrette! Thanks so much for reminding me about it. We don't have a TJ super close by, but I may have to travel out to get me some of that for my salads. Yum!

    Thanks for linking up!
