All weekend we intended to go do fall things. Everyone else was hitting pumpkin patches and apple orchards, and we really, truly, definitely intended to do likewise. But it just didn’t happen. Scheduling constraints, last-minute remembering of commitments I had forgotten, deep laziness- all of these things got in the way. And even though I really wish that I taken advantage of that crazy good fall weather we had, I’m not actually terribly sorry. Because I got work done, and we had some delightfully lazy times around the house. We took long naps, longer walks, and spent Saturday evening playing cards with friends. I came home from a party early on Friday night and sat in my pj’s painting my nails (#girlsgonewild) and we reheated leftover soup all weekend long. I hit Eastern Market for 1$/lb produce late Sunday afternoon, and Sunday morning James and I had a McDonalds breakfast week because I had spent all week craving a McGriddle. All in all, a solid weekend, even if it wasn’t dotted and document with as much autumnal splendor as I had originally hoped.I also spent some aimless time drifting around the Interwebs, and I thought I would send you some nice Monday distractions (if you happen to be working on this holiday) or entertainment (if you get to be home). I know, I know – it is the unspoken rule of the blogging world that we all share lists of random links on Fridays, BUT I’m going to be a rebel over here.
Next time we sneak away for a weekend in the Big Apple, I’m excited to use this as our eating guide. Every last one of her recipes is perfect, so I know all these places will be full of tasty treats.
As someone who proudly spent every summer during college working as a camp counselor instead of doing internships, I love this. (Of course, I did scramble for one the summer after graduating, only to find out that I hated my planned career…. so there’s that too.)
A part of my heart will always be in Stars Hollow, so this gave me all the feely feels.
What if Twilight gender roles were reversed? Spoiler: everything would still be awful.
The weirdest fashion fad around right now.
Single women aren’t just imagining that it’s hard to find men- it really is.
Fall food is my favorite. I’ve been eating lots of Trader Joe’s butternut squash soup, my favorite kale chicken, and I will probably break down and make this and these sometime very soon. I also have high hopes for these, as I did some recipe testing for Caroline’s book and she has all sorts of tasty paleo treats.In other food news, I’m starting to troll recipes for our annual donut making party, so feel free to share if you have a good one! (Baked donuts need not apply- this is a night for frying!)
