{photo credit: me}

wearing: my pajamas which consist of an old t-shirt that my boyfriend was giving away and a pair of teeny tiny shorts that my friend chelsea gave to me a few birthdays ago. i have bedhead. #iwokeuplikethis. that is not hard to believe.

reading: cinnamon and gunpowder by eli brown. i found this book at a thrift shop, and the cover alone won me over. (i do admit that i judge books by their covers. guilty.) the year is 1819, and famous chef owen wedgwood has been kidnapped by the infamous pirate mad hannah mabbot. in order to keep himself alive, owen must create delicious and exotic feasts for mabbot every sunday using what meager and tasteless supplies he has on the ship. it's part adventure, part food book. i'm digging it so far!

anticipating: camping next weekend with my roommate and our friend megan. we went two summers ago, just the three of us, and we're at it again. we went primitive camping last time and none of us got a good night sleep as we thought every noise we heard was a bear/psychopath coming to eat/murder us. we're paying the $15 to set up shop at a designated campsite this year. hey, smores.

listening to: carry you back home by john hiatt.

eating: can't get enough chicken caesar salads lately. i've never had such a strong craving for lettuce before. so that's new. i've been ordering them out at restaurants and buying ingredients to make my own at home. they're both comforting and relatively healthy (minus the fatty salad dressing and copious amount of parmesan cheese) so i'm indulging.

up to today: driving home to the pines. i am stopping by one of the markets where i sell my art to deliver a new display that i've been working on. i found this old wooden drawer at goodwill and immediately thought it would make a great jewelry stand. i sanded it down and painted it a light blue-green and then added some hooks and wiring to be able to hang my necklaces and earrings on it. i'm happy with how it turned out! i hope it looks good in the shop. i will also spend some time with my mom and step-dad while i'm in town. perhaps a coffee date is in the works? always coffee. that's a given.

what are you guys currently up to? tell me all the things!

    1. i did take some pictures! they will be making an appearance soon. how is school?? times does fly, that's for sure. this summer has seemed to be here and gone before i knew it. i am eagerly anticipating autumn, though. it's my favorite season of all. we got a preview of fall-like temps last week which was quite wonderful, but today it's back in the high 90's. ugh. #goaway

  5. That picture is beyond perfect! I have never had the desire to go camping (I'm not much of an outdoors girl) but you make it sound like fun! Everything is better when your doing it with girlfriends :) And a coffee date with your mom and step-dad sounds lovely. Girl, we need to see this new display!! It sounds ridiculously lovely! Your crafting skills make me jealous ha ha!
