Weekly Wonders

Hello again! Another week has gone by, with so many more things to love.  Here are some of my favorites things I discovered this week.

1. Just now – Lauryn Hill singing “Something” by the Beatles on Letterman.  She is BACK, y’all! Glorious as ever.


2. Shakespeare.  I started reading “Much Ado About Nothing” with Daniel, and although it’s pretty hard to read aloud without needing to announce which character is talking, it’s resurfacing my love for the hidden wit in his words and his beautiful flowing language.



3. Silly photo shoots.  My friend Ben is an unbelievable photographer (check out a sampling of his work here) and last night some friends and I got together at his place for a silly photo shoot.  The pictures turned out AMAZINGLY, and it was so fun to goof around and look hilarious.

4. Books by Keri Smith.  I just bought “Living Out Loud” and “Mess”, and I’m so looking forward to her thoughts and teachings about being creative and accepting that we make mistakes.


Things I want to do this week:

-join the gym (I will, I promise), and start working out at least 3 days a week.

-cook something using just ingredients from my fridge (Thanks Keri)

-remember that spring is coming! There will be an end to this winter 🙂


Weekly Wonders!


Here are some things I loved this week.  Looking forward to it getting warmer (even though Phil saw his shadow).

1. Patatas bravas :)))))))))) Who wouldn’t love spicy tomato sauce with potatoes?


2. The new video for “Digital Witness” by St. Vincent.  I can’t even TELL YOU how excited I am for that album to come out.

3. Break ‘n Bake Toll House cookies.  Or mostly, the dough…

4. Beyonce.  No explanation required.


5. Vegetarian ‘Ventures‘ red pepper goat cheese zucchini pizza.  OH MY GOD.  I’ve had it twice this week 🙂


Have a lovely week, everyone!

Weekly Wonders! A New Series

Hello world! I’ve decided to try something new, where every week I endeavor to list things I’ve discovered/tried/heard/seen, etc., and loved, a la Elsie from ABM‘s “Favorite Things”.  Here’s my taste of this past week!

1. I’ve recently grown to be a huge fan of the sister trio California band HAIM, and their song “The Wire”.  Its beat is straight out of “Heartache Tonight”, and the vocal/instrumental combo harkens to a sunny beach dance party.

2. Knitting! I’ve recently learned how to knit from a friend, and over this past week I’ve been honing in on my basic stitch and pearling skills.  My goal is to have a scarf made this year 🙂


3. Covergirl Outlast Lipstain.  I’m not a huge fan of lipstick (because it’s heavy on the stick), but this stuff is all of the color and none of the icky-sticky! Plus it’s cheap.  I’m a huge fan!

4. Peppermint bark coffee creamer.  Who wouldn’t love that?!?!?!?

5. The automatic bread machine that exists in my house now.  I was so excited about it that I made a loaf of egg bread yesterday on a whim.  It was pretty bland :(.  Oh well, all the more incentive to learn more about how to make yummy bread!

Things I want to try this week:

1. Writing a new song.  I haven’t done that in a while, and I miss it.

2. I’d love to try this recipe for tomato chickpea coconut soup.  It sounds amazing, and will be especially good when I can make yummy bread!

3. Sprucing up my space.  I want to start with embellishing the knobs or the front of the drawers on my dresser.  The more color the better!

Here’s to a good week next week!
