Well hi there! I realize it has been since January that I last posted so yes I’m a slacker… (but The Zesty Cook hasn’t posted since January either so I can’t be that bad!) I think about my blog often but wonder, what is going on in my life that you all want to hear about? So instead of me rambling along… here is a list of things that have happened to me since January:
Things Pinterest has done to my life: made me want to cook more, be more crafty, be more fit, be more fashionable. It has also made me realize how much time I spend pinning and how little time I spend actually doing the things that I pin. I have tried a few crafts (unsuccessfully), a few recipes (also unsuccessfully), and I blame pinterest (and the TV show Rehab Addict) for the fact that I now own a beautiful, antique, heavy, broken piano:
I decided this year that I was again going to attempt to grow something on my back patio. I went to my mom for advice, since she is the expert on everything (She’s a mom so that’s part of her job description: Must be an expert on anything your child asks you about). I have killed boxwoods and a few cacti in the past so I was determined to end my plant murdering streak. I purchased boxes to hang on my fence, the proper potting soil, the plants and flowers, and set reminders to water at the proper time. Here is how they looked when I planted them:
Here is what they look like now…
I was lucky enough to attend the Mitt Romney fundraiser at the Hilton Hall of Mirrors. It was a fantastic event full of old Cincinnati money. I got to catch up with an old neighbor, met a new friend, and shook hands with hopefully our next president! Thanks Mom and Dad for making the donation and allowing me to go in your place!
I also spent time going to Reds games and enjoying life downtown on 5th with the love of my life and my pup!
