[Some of the best scallops I've ever had, on Tuesday night at Blue Apron.]

Watching Game of Thrones. Holy crap you guys! Who is watching it? I have always loved her, but Daenerys was so damn cool last week. I'm kind of obsessed with her. I also have a huge, nearly out-of-control crush on Tyrion Lannister.

Thinking about some really exciting things coming up in the next few weeks. My brother is graduating, I'm finishing up a personal project that I can't wait to share with you guys, and Rob will be in town for a couple of long weekends at the end of May.

Listening to Taylor Swift's Fearless. I know it doesn't make any sense because I actually can't stand her, but I listened to that album the spring of my junior year of college and ever since then, I haven't been able to escape it. I play it in the mornings with the windows down and it reminds me of those days.

Reading books about design, for work. They're really interesting and helpful, but I haven't been reading that much lately and it makes me sad. The other day I flipped through Where the Wild Things Are. I think once I get David Sedaris' new book I'll be back in the swing of things again.

Loving spring. It has already been a long week, but spring is here in full force and it is making me so happy. There's something about this season that just instills a new will to be cheerful and active and thankful for life. Autumn is my favorite season until spring rolls around. I think it's okay to have two favorite times of the year.

Drinking cold-brewed iced coffee. My favorite. We make it at night and I pour some with ice and sometimes coconut milk into a jar (I'm still loving my Cuppow) and take it to work with me.

Eating berries! I went through an entire little box of raspberries in one sitting the other day. And I'm really into strawberries this year.

Missing Rob. We do get to see each other a lot considering the distance between us, but the three weeks between visits thing is kind of rough. Every other week seems doable, but as soon as we have to say, "Okay, see you next month," it kind of sucks.

Looking forward to this weekend. I'm helping to set up a bridal shower next door, and then hosting a going-away cookout for my sweet friend Lauren. I'm looking forward to good food, good company, and a pretty serious morning of sleeping in on Sunday!

What are you up to currently?
As always, thanks to my sweet blog-friend Dani for inspiring these posts.


  1. Certain albums just do that - they aren't particular your thing, but just remind you of a certain time or feeling so powerfully that you can't say no :)

    And Game of Thrones? Yessssss!! Such a badass episode.

  2. LOTS of things. :) Learning Photoshop at Blogshop, planning for a trip to Scottsdale and DC in May, making changes to the blog... it's an exciting time.

  3. yeah, game of thrones was pretty awesome last week! I am also loving mad men. I cannot get enough of this season....and I am anticipating the next and final season so much. Yes to the berries. I have been eating strawberries like CRAZY lately :).

  4. Um, I am loving the iced coffee idea. Do you just brew it normally and then refrigerate?

  5. I have been on a Taylor kick lately too. Sometimes I just want fun music and she's perfect for that. And there's always the little kick of nostalgia.

    Yay spring! Fresh berries too. I can't wait to get my hands on some. And I'm excited to hear about your little personal project! Happy Friday, friend :)

  6. Yes, I've been eating berries non-stop too! I can go through a container of strawberries in a day, between smoothies and snacking on them... So glad that Spring is finally decided to stick around! :)

  7. if you're going to listen to TSwift, it has to be her early stuff, in the car, with the windows down. it's the only way to do it.

    and EEEEEE YAY to your brother!

    and also you and Rob are awesome and you can do it rah rah rah :)

  8. Yes, Tyrion! I'm in major crush mode with him, too. His character is just awesome and Peter Dinklage does an amazing job.
    I'm re-reading Storm of Swords and barely staying ahead of each weeks episode this season, but it's my favorite book of the 5 (so far) so I am loving it every Sunday!
