This was a perfect night for playing with the new camera lens…and I never miss an opportunity to sit on the Buick.
This is what happens when you leave the door to the laundry room that also houses the recycle open while you’re at work…
I know I always include photos of books I’m reading, but seriously this cookbook is GREAT. LOVE it! Love Daphne Oz!
Weirdest hotel room ever at Aloft — Nashville…was very nice, but totally bizarre…I kinda loved it.
After 10 years, these guys have been to hell and back with me. 4 years hiking and swimming hole swimming in Asheville, 7 weeks in Spain, 1 week in Rome, a summer at Camp Walt Whitman, 3 weeks backpacking across Europe, a year in the fjords, a year in drizzle, a year in sweltering madness, and two years chilling back home.
I’m shipping them off to be resoled and to get new straps. I love Chaco…they are an amazing company. Thank goodness I have two other pair here at home until the return…ha!
As I write this post:
And here we are again at the end of another month! And Thursday is my last day of work (day job) for the summer! What in the heck!?

I love having librarian friends that write notes in the books I have on hold!
Still working out the kinks of this new lens
You’re about to pulverized into almond cream
I took a ton more photos this week with the new lens, but given that I’m manually focusing and getting used to it, I figured you wouldn’t want to look at a bunch of fuzzy, overexposed pictures. Ha!
Off to Nashville after work today for Jeopardy! Woohoo!

Pretty pretty at Lis’ house.
I really wanted to get out my camera more on this trip, but it was raining pretty much the entire time I was there. Boo.
We found the Downtown Market….ahem…
A little while back I was contacted by Dress United about featuring their custom t-shirt service. This service was ridiculously easy and I am seriously considering putting in an order for more. I am very picky when it comes to tshirts…let alone custom made ones. In my opinion, there is nothing worse than a custom tshirt that is super thick, heavy, and splattered with rough screenprinting. This shirt exceeded my expectations in almost every way. Not only is it super duper soft, but the images are seamlessly printed onto the shirt as if they’ve been there forever.
Thank you so much for this opportunity Dress United. I can’t wait to show it off around town.
Alright y’all, I’ll catch you later. I’ve got to get off the computer and hobble to work. Kathryn Budig was UHHHHHH-mazing, but boy am I sore! (in a good way!)

So long April. You were full of uneventful days, dog walks, hours of reading, and yoga-ing. Bring on May!
Headed down to Asheville this morning. Got the second half of Sedaris and a bunch of podcasts to listen to!

Can’t wait until I’m off work for eight weeks…I’m planning some major one-on-one time with my camera.
And that’s so totally it for this week. You know that feeling when there seem to be a million different things coming together all at once and it’s all you can do to just barely get through it all? Yeah, that. Asheville this weekend should be a nice little break, then bring on Nashville and the end of school. I cannot wait until summer. You can tell I don’t care much about Derby…leaving for Asheville for the whole weekend and it doesn’t even factor in to all the events I have going on…Hoosier at heart I suppose.
Oh and it doesn’t help matters much that allergies struck me down AGAIN and I haven’t had much of a voice this week. Boo

It’s homemade soda season again! Remember this post from last year? Clementines, tonic water, boom.
I ate this soup all week for lunch…it was good, but by Thursday I was having a hard time.
This Tabac scented candle is my new obsession…until I realized it’s a “crackles as it burns” candle…?!?!?!? Who thought this was a good idea!??!
I found my Pagekeeper! I know it sounds crazy…but it makes me read a bazillion times faster?! Finished The Interestings, now halfway through with this Jennifer Close book…pretty fluffball, but I’m having fun with it.
Have a great week all.

Trying to make sense of a chaotic kitchen…the relentless of dishes always gets me down.
Really enjoying my yoga lately…again, YogaGlo has been a complete and total game changer.
Heard this book recommended on one of my favorite podcasts, went straight to library. They weren’t kidding. Wow.

Walked on the newly opened Big Four pedestrian bridge with Mom and Hammy. It is so wonderful!
Hammy loved it!
Gathering supplies for Louisville vs. Wichita St
Finally got to say goodbye to all my boots!
Yeah and that’s it for photos this week…it kinda crept up on me and I realized I only had my camera out a day or two. Whoops–spring fever is getting me!

Finally got our upstairs finished with a new tv! Also rearranged furniture so that we now have computer-office area at the other end. It’s very cozy…and Bagel loves it…
Jewelry getting cleaned.
white wine in sunlight…got these glasses as a wedding present…still love them!
Checked this out from the library…Andrew wants to start listening to audiobooks on his commute…not exactly sure this is what he has in mind…
I made multiple batches of these vegan peanut butter cups over spring break. Delicious and ridiculously easy.
Found this sticker while reorganizing this week…I love it!Asian for dinner always = a sticky soy/sweet dipping sauce
Also finally got our spare room turned into a little reading room…this chair is a hand-me-down from Andrew’s parents…I have always loved it and about died when they wanted to get rid of it…it’s comically large.
Easter present from my mama…I devoured these in record time. Love Schimpff’s!
Finally about to finish this one…really loving it!
