On Activity Lately.
I’ve had this column started in my drafts for like four weeks. Oomph!
Remember aftermost year back my brother got engaged? The bells is about here! So crazy. And. I begin out I was abundant the day afore the assurance and it aloof seems like it was all so continued ago. But it FLEW. But it was always ago. But it went so fast. Whyyyy.
So May was conjugal battery month! We had one in Cleveland and one here.
I hosted her battery actuality and while I ambition it could be all pinteresty and stuff, who has time for that? I appetite to accept time for that but appropriate now I accept time for nothing. Which stresses me out so again I do nothing. So smart!
Anyhoo. We did a mimosa bar (with orange, grapefruit and pineapple juice), algid affection tea lemonade and some lemon/lime/cucumber/mint ice water. I fabricated a big ass cheese board, this lemon almond buzz craven salad, a big greens bloom with avocado and scallions and a albino vinaigrette (I aloof fabricated both up as I went), forth with some bake-apple and shrimp and being like that.
Oooooh what else. We’ve been walking lots! The hills in our adjacency are KILLER. Add a adventurer and you’re done.
Zippity doo dah done. We abrasion air-conditioned shades. These are alleged Babiators. No, I am not kidding. Does annihilation abroad scream “this-is-our-first-child!” ?????
I’ve been coursing my mom for a few weeks to appear plant/flower arcade with me. She is the queen of flowers (annuals) and for 30 years has buried the best attractive (and insane) flowers. Like… we are talking austere planting. Weeks of annual planting. I mean, it’s a annual project. HUGE.
So I had no abstraction what to bulb where, area to get the prettiest/most economical plants (as an ardent agriculturalist my mom knows allll the spots), what works in adumbration against sun and all that jazz. I’m not talking herbs or veg, aloof flowers to appealing aggregate up. She helped me out and now I accept lots of flowers which don’t attending like lots of flowers back you angle in advanced my house. I’m acquisitive they bound multiply. I appetite to be beat by color.
Like I’ve now told you six abundance times, I additionally buried a agglomeration of herbs in pots because I can’t acquisition a arena atom to accomplish to yet. Apparently too abounding herbs in too little pots. But! They are growing like crazy. Adjure I accumulate them alive.
We’ve adapted a lot of banquet lately. Which is a biiiig change from acclimation banquet out a LOT afterwards Max was born. I mentioned it yesterday in my favorites (and if you chase me on breeze babble it’s there, like, everyday) but we’ve been authoritative tonnnnns of fajitas. One assay affair of craven or abut steak lots of peppers and onions usually yields one or two fajita dinners, a fajita bloom and/or a fajita nacho night.
The dent in that plate. The abuse chip. It drives me MAD.
I’ve additionally fabricated this craven recipe four times in the aftermost anniversary . Aftermost night I switched up the honey admixture by abacus alacrity (because alacrity is life) and it was fabulous.
Why do I adulation all the things briney? Is that abiogenetic or something? Mustard, pickles, vinegar, olives. Accord it all to me.
The craven is ideal though. I consistently accomplish a bifold batch. Accept it for cafeteria and dinners with lots of greens and feta. Accept it addition time in altered tacos or something. Bandy it in pasta. Bandy it on pizza!
Please agenda these.
Strawberry albino jello shots. Actuality recreated as we speak.
And a little bairn on a big bed!
Hotel Monaco opened up in Pittsburgh a few months ago. It’s dreamy.
Can my bedchamber attending like that?
Per normal, we’ve done bags of brunch. We’re sooooo predictable.
We had a post-bachelorette affair brunch at Altius.
I’d like thirty bristles coffees appropriate now please.
I can skip the biscotti. Did you apperceive that? I don’t like biscotti at all. I anticipate it consistently tastes like cardboard. Always. #notworthit
More coffee! Does your coffee abide if you don’t instagram it? Ew.
Last weekend we fabricated a makeshift brunch out of donuts and tacos in the strip. Do we anytime eat things added than tacos? I don’t know. I absolutely don’t. All things go in tacos, always.
I additionally had banquet at Sausalido. Which was oh-so absurd and let me aloof appearance you this huge caster of ABSURD GOUDA.
What the what? Who does that?
The appearance makes up for the all the cheese. #truth
If you’re a mom and/or actual organized, do you accept an app/suggestion/superpower anatomy plugin to canonizing to do all the things? GAH. I am authoritative so abounding impaired mistakes and apathy things in accustomed life. A few weeks ago I alike wrote “loosing” instead of “losing” in a blog post, adapt it multiples and still hit broadcast which is one of my better pet peeves. WHO AM I?
No, but really, I can accomplish a pen cardboard list, accept the aforementioned account on my phone, add things to my planner, a cardboard agenda and an cyberbanking agenda and STILL balloon stuff. Area is my braaaain? I’m apathy all sorts of things.
My better attempt is accepting the alternation of every day. Here’s a funny thing: every distinct night I still achieve a big agitation account for the abutting day. Like, yeah. Lots of stuff. Mostly work. Every.single.night. And every distinct night, I still anticipate that the abutting day, I will be able to achieve said things.
Every distinct day I do not achieve said things. Some canicule I achieve about all, some canicule I achieve two thirds of ONE thing. Yet I still accomplish the list, still accept the optimism that Hey! I.Can.Do.It.! Back will I get the announcement that accustomed is capricious and I can’t plan it all? Maybe in two years? BAH.
I’m gonna go eat a taco.
