Drinking: San Pellegrino Limonata.....always. My blood is approximately 89% lemon at this point.

Watching: Tyler play some weird, exceptionally gory video game with "Anarchy" in the title.....while singing Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," which has been in his head all day. It's a combination you truly have to see to appreciate.

Thinking about: a Honey Lavender Float. I had one yesterday (betcha can't guess where I got it...ha!) and I thought lavender ice cream was good, but this was ridiculous. New favorite.

Dreading: grocery shopping tomorrow. I don't know why it always seems like such a huge undertaking. I mean, it's just food.

Excited about: Tyler's new job. The job search was really starting to wear on him and affect him mentally and emotionally, and it's really so wonderful to see him so happy now. He's worked so hard over the past year, and I couldn't be prouder of him. He's so excited, and I'm excited for him. Plus, having weekends like this one (where we're both off!) every weekend is going to be amazing.

Feeling: all the good feelings. I'm a happy gal lately.

Wishing for: some good organizational strategies. I have this problem where I want to do everything. I start too many projects at once, and then I'm pulled in a million different directions. This is also why I am good at a lot of things and awesome at none. I have roughly zero focus. And it's kinda hard to blog consistently, learn French, embroider a bazillion quilt blocks, and become a British history expert while working a full-time job. So I gotta get this under control over here. :) Any tips? I'm all ears.


  1. As far as organization - lists. Lots and lots of lists. And have you tried mind mapping? It does wonders for me.

    1. I'm definitely a lister! I haven't ever heard of mind mapping, though. Sounds like I need to do a little research...any recommended resources?

  2. I'm also a list maker... but for the most part I'm with you, lots of projects at once! I think I just thrive on the stress I put on myself. :) I tried lavender ice cream at a place in Portland called Salt & Straw... people raveeee about it. Not my favorite though, I think it tastes like soap. (?) Not sure why. :)

    1. I always do better under stress, so maybe I'm like you, and it's all self-induced. Haha. I'm usually really organized, but having so much going at once makes me feel disorganized (and crazy! ha).

      Lavender is one of those things that you either love or hate. I've always loved floral teas, so lavender ice cream (or coffee, or cookies, or fudge....) isn't really a leap for me, but I can understand why people are weirded out by it. It tastes pretty much exactly how it smells, too, so I understand the comparison.

      Salt & Straw, huh? Gonna write that one down for my next PDX trip. I'm dying to get back!

  3. Where do you find SP Limonata? I found the cans at Dillon's, but I'm wondering where else I can get it!

    1. I buy it in Dillion's. Haha. :)

      Elle's used to have it, but I haven't seen it there lately. That's where I got addicted, and then I went on a hunt.

      (I have heard good things about Perrier's lemon-lime, too, but I haven't tried it. Maybe give that a spin, since you can buy it by the bottle?)
