Have a Happy Weekend

November 21, 2014

weekend

This week didn’t fly by as quickly as the previous few weeks, but work has been oddly enjoyable, so I’m not complaining. I finally found fresh cranberries at the market (BOGO, no less!) so I’m looking forward to trying out a new muffin recipe, and tonight I’m getting that long awaited haircut I’ve been planning for what feels like forever. Hope you have a happy weekend, and here’s what I’ve loved on the web this week…

Five Podcasts Worth Listening To

entertainment

When I moved four hours away from home to go to college, I didn’t realize just how often I would travel between Tallahassee and Orlando. More importantly, I didn’t realize how boring the drive would be. After exhausting my iTunes playlist with a quickness, I turned to podcasts to keep me entertained along the way. Some have come and gone, but I thought I’d share the others that have remained in my queue, entertaining me week after week.

BEFORE

I’ve had this set of ceramic canisters for 10 years. I bought them with my mom when I was moving into my first college apartment, and they’ve made so many moves with me, always landing on my kitchen counter. A cute set of three holding flour, sugar, and leftover ketchup packets from fast food joints. Until now. I dropped the lid to the largest canister on the counter and it busted, so now my cute set of three is a cute set of two. I love recycling old containers for my greenery, so this is how I transformed my mistake into something I love looking at everyday.

About This Blog

life

So, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA lately. Maybe you’ve noticed, and perhaps you have not. Either way, I’ve 1. been very lazy the past two weeks and, 2. in a creative rut of sorts. Concerning the future of this blog, I’ve decided that while striving to post each day will be my ultimate goal, I’m not going to post content I’m only kind of in love with. So, if I miss a day or two (or ten), please know it’s because I’ve got something good in the works. Quality over quantity, amiright?

Thanks for your understanding, and I’ll be back next week with some goodies to share! Hope to see you soon, and in the meantime, please feel free to check out my favorite blogs and websites added to the sidebar to the right. These are the places I visit on the reg for inspiration and insight, and I hope you enjoy them just as much as I do!
