Week in Photos 4.8.17

Remember way back when – when I had a series on the blog called Week in Photos? Where I shared five-ish photos that I had captured throughout the week? I’m gonna try to start doing these posts every so often again – just because they are fun and fun to look back on.

Four photos from my week!

Life Update

I sure do miss the times of Week in Photos.

I miss documenting those small, wonderful things that made my days happy. I miss sharing those things with you. 

Week in Photos has not come to an end, rather, a temporary break. I’ll start doing a random update post once or twice a month, like I did here in September, sharing some life photos that I have captured. 

Some things from the past month:

We met Greg’s lab mate Kate and her husband Greg at Mt. Airy’s Street Fare in September. It was along the main road in Mt. Airy and there were around 50 restaurants/gourmet food trucks there to vend. There was also live music and activities. The four of us spent most of the evening just enjoying the beautiful weather and good conversation. Greg and I enjoyed beer from one of our favorites: Earth Bread + Brewery and ate a flatbread from there and also a lobster roll from Surf and Turf truck. I wasn’t able to get many photos before it got dark, but here are the few that I did get:

 We have been grilling every chance we get. We have been doing it at least every Saturday night since we got our grill. We love it. We have the perfect little backyard in which to do it in. We set up with a table that Greg got for us at a yard sale for $3 (!), some beer and just enjoy being outside. We have grilled two different kinds of veggie burgers, tuna steaks, and made grilled cheese sandwiches on the grill! We have also done brussels sprouts in our veggie rack. Here are some photos I took one night before it got dark:

Hi!

Hey everyone! How are you on this Saturday? It’s been so long since I’ve talked to you on a Saturday. It’s also been so long since I’ve posted a Week in Photos post. I keep intending to, and then when I look at the photos I’ve taken throughout the week, there are none. I think that now that I am busier, there isn’t as much time to think about picking up my camera before doing or eating something. I am on a more strict schedule and things like taking pictures of the food I eat or taking a million photos of Ivy are falling to the wayside. 🙂

Anyway, I thought I would post a little update today with things I’ve been up to/things I’ve been loving, for anyone who’s interested. Enjoy your Saturday!

What I’ve been doing:

-I had my last market in Mt. Airy on Thursday. Here are some photos. I’ll miss it!

-We planted a garden! It was so much fun. I totally get why people love gardening. It is great exercise and relaxing. It just gives you an overall great feeling. I love our little fall garden, and it makes me think of having an even bigger one someday! We planted: beets, radishes, turnips, arugula, romaine lettuce, spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. So, one problem. Rabbits ate our greens! Yep, all of the lettuce, spinach and kale. We are working on fixing it. I’ll keep you posted!

-We are still working on the moving process. We still have things to do like decide where we want photos hung, organizing closets/boxes and finding a couple of things we still need to buy. It’s keeping us busy but like I’ve said before, Greg and I really love it here! I really want to post some photos soon :).

Food things I’m loving lately (no pictures!):

Zsa’s buttered brown sugar peach ice cream. I picked up a sample size cup of it at Weaver’s Way and oh my goodness, best ice cream ever. I have tried several flavors of Zsa’s and this was by far my favorite. I was just thinking that besides the one week I spent at the beach earlier in the summer (where I ate ice cream every single day), I haven’t had enough ice cream this summer. That needs to change with what is left of warm days. 

Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning. I bought this several months ago, not really having a plan for it, but I went through it so fast! I have been cutting tortillas in triangles, spraying them with a bit of canola oil spray, giving them a good sprinkle of TJ’s Everyday Seasoning and then baking them in a 400* oven for 5-10 minutes or until crispy. I’ve been doing that instead of buying tortilla chips and they are just so good with that seasoning! (Can’t find a link for it, but look for it at TJ’s next time you’re there!)

Star Hill Brewery beer. Greg picked me up from work last weekend with a surprise in the back seat. And it was beer! There is no better surprise than that, right? It was from Star Hill Brewery in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was special for several reasons. 1) We have never tried it before and it’s always exciting to try a new beer, especially when it’s a surprise. 2) I have talked about visiting Charlottesville for so long now. We haven’t made it yet, but I hope to soon, and drinking beer from there was a good alternative to actually going there. 🙂 Now, when we do go to Charlottesville, I want to visit the brewery :). We had a variety pack – a wheat beer, a pilsner, an IPA and a pale ale. They were all great!

Lancaster Farm Fresh CSA. Greg’s lab-mate and friend, Kate, got married last weekend and is now away enjoying a two week honeymoon! So, what that means for us is Kate and her husbands’ CSA share for two weeks! Yes, Kate so kindly asked Greg if we would like their share for the two weeks they are away. It was so exciting going to pick it up, having no idea what would be waiting for us in the boxes. It was seriously like Christmas morning! So fun, and we got so much amazing produce!

This hummus. Greg and I made it last weekend, then sat on the living room floor, ate it, drank beer and starting watching Breaking Bad on Netflix. The hummus was good, and so was the evening.

This pasta salad. I made it one evening earlier in the week and we enjoyed it for several dinners and lunches throughout. Made delicious with fresh Three Springs yellow peaches and heirloom tomatoes!

And, not really food, but had to do with the blog, this new fabric. I got it for free! at a yard sale and was hoping to use it in some photos. I definitely don’t think it would go with everything, or even most things, but I used in this post, here. What do you think? Do you like it or is it too much? Let me know!

And, I do have two week in photo style photos to share with you.

{Because I just couldn’t help it. They are just so pretty!}

Happy Friday! 

I missed sharing with you last Friday. Last Friday was the start of our big move. Since I missed this post last week, I thought I would have double the photos to share this week.

Well, I got on this morning to sort through photos and found that I have taken very few photos in the last two weeks! I feel like there are so many little special things that I want to share with you, but I don’t have photos of them! Maybe I need to get better at snapping photos, even during a busy time, like a move. 

Most of the things I want to share with you are apartment related, so maybe once we are more settled, I’ll share an apartment post with you. 

But for now, enjoy, three things that made my week special! 

{This mug. Given to me by my beautiful friend, Amanda. I am obsessed with this mug. It is so perfect.}

{This table. I LOVE this table here. It has to be one of my favorite things about the apartment. Thank you Sandy and Greg 🙂 Also, love those flowers from market.}

{Ivy. We think he is feeling more and more at home everyday here. I think this photo says a lot. He has found a favorite napping spot.}

Have a wonderful weekend and I will talk with you Monday!

Week in Photos

Yay it’s Friday! I’ve been waiting for this Friday all summer.

My best friend (who now lives in Lexington) told me earlier this summer that we would be going shopping for her wedding dress this weekend, and I’ve been anxiously awaiting the day since. That means that we will both be home. We lived next door to each other since the beginning of my existence and we now each live hours from home, in opposite directions. It will be such a nice reunion!

We also have a nice little get-together planned at my house Saturday night with all of the people who I miss. Can’t wait!

Here are six things that made my week happy!

{This pizza. Toto’s is always a good idea.}

{These tomatoes. From Blooming Glen Farm. So good, just like this.}
