My Week in Pictures – Week 15

It finally, finally feels like Spring is here! The weather is warm, plants are sprouting all over the place… it makes me happy.

Here’s a paperwhite that I got as a shower favor. No blooms yet, but this baby grows fast!

Image

Spring breakfast, nom nom nom

Image

This is how I celebrated UConn winning the NCAA tournament! Thanks co-worker!

Image

We had crocuses for exactly one day.

Image

Single lady dinner: leftovers (carrot coconut soup and kale tabbouleh), wine, and my RSS feed.

Image

Dave made dinner! Parsnip fritters, which were pretty tasty!

Image

Wispy clouds and an empty work parking lot on a Saturday morning

Image

Baking with the door open! Yes!

[The brownies were kind of a Pinterest fail, I don't even feel like posting the recipe.]

Image

My petulant grandfather (that’s a strawberry in his mouth)

Image

My lovely grandparents! I’m in awe that their 60th wedding anniversary is this year. Such a milestone! <3

Image

Have a great week!

My Week in Pictures – Week 14

A warning – I make up for the lack of pictures last week! :)

Sunday brunch fundraiser! I looooove brunch. This guy, not so much.

Image

I seriously think it’s my favorite meal.

Image

Guys, I think I invented something amazing – turnip fries! I’m not even kidding, these were really good, served along side turkey burgers.

Image

I think this is my sweaty, accomplished running face.

Image

I cannot even tell you how upset this made me when I looked out the window.

Image

Those are some low odds right there

Image

Another HCC meal! This time it was a diner-themed lunch. This was just the appetizer (duck confit Reuben)!

Image

Networking event at the Basketball Hall of Fame. Fancy!

Image

Why, hello!

Image

Financial seminar on Friday, which was really good! Here’s the keynote speaker, Amanda Steinberg, who founded DailyWorth. It was really inspiring to learn more about taking hold of your financial future.

Image

I totally treated myself to ice cream afterwards.

Image

Asparagus pizza for dinner! It’s such a treat. (Plus, Dave gave me the slice that looks like a mitten!)

Image

Webs meet-up with the Ravelry ‘Weds!

Image

We had a blast picking out yarn and needles! We walked up to Green Bean and Tart Bakery for lunch and a snack. No picture of my citrus cream puff from the bakery, I inhaled it. Mmmmm, pastry cream.

Love Sarah and Alissa’s matching shirts!

Image

Here’s my haul from Webs! I’m so excited about the new interchangeable needles.

Image

Such a busy week! I’m exhausted just recapping it.

My Week in Pictures – Week 13

I was pretty sick for much of Week 13. Blech! Looking back, it wasn’t so bad, but I hate the feeling of having no energy to do anything. Dave was traveling most of this week too.

I did make some Chocolate Bourbon Banana Bread (recipe in the Joy the Baker cookbook)

Image

Early morning with the humidifer

Image

Running group was cold – it’s not easy running while congested, but I finished the workout!

Image

Working on my Neon cardigan, the sleeve increases kept me busy a long time.

Image

Dubsie’s getting old! (And dusty, ugh.)

Image

Slow picture week, I know, but I’m definitely blaming the plague.

My Week in Pictures – Week 12

Well, I’m behind again. Two weekends ago, I was sick with a fever and a chest cold, and I’m just now starting to feel better.

Knitting brunch is not knitting brunch without more nutella crepes!

Image

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The extent of my celebration was this cake pop at lunch.

Image

My car looks like Shrek in the evening sun

Image

I never thought I’d see the day…

Image

Rainy walk

Image

Did I show off my new haircut yet?

Image

Happy first day of spring!

Image

My manager gave us all daffodils! So sweet

Image

Running group!

Image

Can you tell I don’t like the banana Runts?

Image

Blech.

My Week in Pictures – Week 11

Hello friends! How’s your March going?

Last Monday, I slipped and fell on some ice. I broke the fall with my knee, so I have a pretty fantastic bruise. There’s nothing like a side of ace bandages with your breakfast, right?

Image

Turkey burgers and tots for dinner!

Image

Patriotic sunset

Image

I attempted lattice crust! It wasn’t difficult!

Image

Happy Pi Day! I made Cherry Pi(e).

Image

It was delicious… best second breakfast ever.

Image

Date night

Image

PEEPmobile!

Image

I got to meet a PEEP!

Image

Wandering around Yankee Candle and enjoying the fake snow

Image

New haircut!

Image

Saturday run! Seems appropriate for St Paddy’s Day tomorrow

Image

Have a great week!

My Week in Pictures – Week 10

I’m all caught up! Yay!

This Chicken Coconut Red Thai Curry was pretty tasty. I riffed on this recipe.

Image

I also made this English Muffin Toasting Bread. I love toast so much.

Image

So many perpendicular lines

Image

I was easily amused that my flashcards came with rubber bands. I also started a Bullet Journal, which has been keeping me productive.

Image

Turkey Taco… Wednesday?

Image

This is hopefully the last frost! (Fingers crossed.)

Image

Weekend ritual

Image

Sweater progress

Image

Running outside for the first time in ages! It was so nice out, despite the white landscape.

Image

(Hi swan!)

Here’s hoping the nice weather sticks around! I’m already a fan of the extra hour of evening light starting today.

Mr. Humphries the bunny is back!

Doctor Who fans, can you see the reference in the window refection? This is the view from my desk at work.

Spring is getting closer, right?
