Life Lately.

D has been out of town a lot recently, and I've been spending a lot of time at my desk.  I'm making efforts to get out and do things more though.  February has certainly treated me kindly so far.

 [I've been digging mixed drinks lately.  Gin + tonic + lime.  Yes.]

 [Finished reading The Fault in Our Stars with a little cookie in a mug.]

 [Week 5 of half marathon training is completed!]

 [A delicious beer brunch which deserves a full post for another day.]

 [Sending out my first card from Row House 14!]

 [Girl Scout cookies being eaten from least to greatest.]

 [Beer tasting + taco night with great friends (and yes, that's homemade guac!)]

 [Beautiful Raleigh sky on Valentine's Day.]

 [After Friday was 60+ degrees, it snowed Saturday and we spent a lazy day doing nothing.]

 [Snow days call for mulled wine...]

[...and Scrabble + beer of course.]

I love the pictures you take! They're always so lovely and simple!
And I know you've done a couple of half marathons already, but good luck with training and keep up the good work! I just did my first half yesterday :) needless to say I'm aching a bit today!

This cracked out weather is starting to get on my nerves! Is it yours?
I bought a six pack of mixed beers to try and thought of you. Drank a Shadow's Wild Black Blackberry Lager with some popcorn the other night and quite enjoyed it!

Gin and tonic is my kryptonite!
Saturday was the perfect day to stay in and get day drunk. Love all of your pictures!

Your blog is way adorable! I can't wait to read more. I stopped by from the Life Lately Link Up! I'm a new follower. And, I loved your About Me section. Your wedding pictures were gorgeous! Great snippets above too!

I have not played scrabble in FOREVER. I need to pour some wine and play with the hubs! ♥

Happy Monday pretty lady!

mmm, that Shift beer is delicious. Thanks for the tips on chickens; it definitely puts my mind more at ease about getting some. And we're not totally sold on the bees yet. :)
If you're ever in Kzoo and want to hit up Bell's, let me know!

All of these posts you do make your life seem like so much carefree fun. I want a little desk with a candle to work out. And that beer brunch looks yum!

I'm so jealous of the snow! It's nice that SF is temperate all year round, but snow makes my heart flutter. :) I gotta get up to Tahoe!

Gin seems like such a sophisticated drink but I can't even stomach the smell of it. I did have a couple whiskey & gingers last night, though, which was yummy. :)

dude! I didn't realize you live in Raleigh!!! I'm moving there in August :) Can't wait!!!

Meghan said...

So, because of you, I picked up some beer at the grocery store:)

Alex said...

Hi come hang out with me when D is out of time. I'd like to do all of the above with you :)

Carolyn said...

Great pictures! Your Girl Scout cookie order is same as mine. I've never been to Raleigh but it seems like the weather there fluctuates like here in Colorado!
