Despite the terrible allergies, I’ve been plagued with, this week was pretty good. I’m definitely excited for the weekend though!
First: My great-aunt came to visit us for Easter and she turned ninety in February, so we made her cake and sang her happy birthday in Italian. (She was so touched she cried! So sweet.) Second: I love how our dining room table looks all dressed up. Third: I made beet, orange and fennel salad, and the entire thing turned red. It was pretty delicious.
Top: I got a mani/pedi with my mom. The grey color I chose was called “French Quarter for your thoughts.” I wish I could be a professional nail polish color namer. Do they exist? Bottom: My seedlings are starting to look like tomatoes. I really need to transplant them.
This List of 13 Things to Get You Through a Rough Day really helped me on Tuesday when an allergy induced Migraine hit.
I have not read a single book on this list of 10 Books to Read Before You Grow Up. I think I’ll start with number seven.
I wish I had read this advice about compost before I mixed it all into the garden. (I’m pretty sure it’ll be okay though.)
Have you seen the movie, Drive? The soundtrack was amazing so I appreciated this post by Mallory’s boyfriend Brian.
We all have two more days to enter Kaylah’s giveaway for B.A.I.T shoes. (I don’t enter many giveaways but those shoes are cute!)
My Hunger Games Name is Greasy Flickerwood. I was a tribute from District Seven in the 31st Hunger Games and I was killed because I thought it was okay to stroke a snake. Who are you? Let me know in the comments, I think this is the most hilarious website ever.
Jon’s been to Ireland twice, traveling there as a visiting artist, and sparking my interest in going someday. Caiti’s been posting beautiful pictures of her Ireland ventures as she’ll be living there for while, and they made the fire spread. I want to go NOW!
This list made me want to read more non-fiction. I added like 10 books to my to-read list.
Speaking of things I want to read, J.K. Rowlings first post-potter book, which she wrote for adults, comes out in September. I hope it meets or surpasses my expectations.
I have a feeling this is going to be an awesome series.
My friends really need to start having babies (or I guess get married first) so that I can knit them sweet sweaters and make them cute/ funky pants.
I love Summer rolls, and this post made me believe I could make my own… maybe this weekend.
I really enjoyed Divergent, and I can’t wait to read Insurgent in May, so it was awesome to see how excited Veronica Roth got about being published for a second time.
Did you hear the Gary Ross isn’t directing the next Hunger Games Movie? It’ll be interesting to see who they are able to get to do it.
I’m so excited to watch the new HBO series, Girls this weekend. I think it’s going to be awesome.
I have a ton of things I’m hoping to accomplish this weekend. My word for the weekend is “Follow Through.” What do you have planned for this weekend friends?
