Redeeming Weather

After a week of nasty, rainy, gloomy weather, this weekend is making up for all of it. It is absolutely beautiful here today – high 60s, clear sky, slight breeze.

I didn’t even need a jacket or fleece this morning!

I drove out into town, got gas, did the grocery shopping, got a refill for our growler, and headed back home.

I also looked a few places for clothing, but had no luck. I hate when I actually have some money to spend and can’t find anything. I really want some plain, solid color tops, and I’m having a hard time finding what I want.

I guess I at least kept some money in my wallet ;)

Once I got home, Nick took a break from sanding my dresser to eat lunch.


We split the leftover pasta from last night – that pesto is so good! It’s like a jar full of fresh, summer flavor.


And I just had one of those mini Oikos Strawberry yogurts with some trail mix.


I didn’t even know we had this cute little strawberry spoon!


It’s going to be a busy afternoon – Nick’s back outside working on the dresser and I’ve got 2 loads of laundry going right now.

I think I’m going to try to clean up some today so we won’t have much to do tomorrow, but we’ll see how that goes.

And dinner tonight should be fun! I’m trying a new recipe that I’m entering in a contest….I’m hoping it turns out well!



  1. That spoon is adorable
    And it is the complete opposite here. It was so nice all week and now I dread the thought of going outside

  2. i get a ton of solid t’s at old navy (if that’s the solid you’re looking for)
    and there is a 30% off coupon out there for this weekend (for gap and banana too-i get a lot of solid shirts at gap as well)… you can find it with some googling (or i can send it to ya…)

  3. If you’ve got a Kohls around you, I might try there for the tops. They’ve got a lot of plain ones for good prices, too! Your oikos looks delicious, and I love that lil spoon!

  4. Should I admit I don’t know what a growler is?
    I tried to go shopping today also with specific items in mind that I needed. No luck!! What is up with that? Can’t I find just one pair of jeans that doesn’t need to be altered in any way?
    Good luck with the dinner recipe – can’t wait to see what it is.

  5. oh so YOU’RE the one hogging all the nice weather ;) send some of that over here! It’s miserable!

    hmmm, plain solid colored tops — I’d recommend Target! never dissapoints.. and I’m sure they’ll me muy cheap!

  6. Aw I love the strawberry spoon! How cute!! It was so warm in MI today – almost 70! Good luck with the recipe :)
