Eating: I'm on my no-carb kick again to jump start summer and I can already tell I am feeling better. I snapchat a lot of my meals, so if that is something you are interested in, follow along: SummerWind41490. I'll be posting some of my favorite/successful recipes. I've been making this absolutely amazing baked salmon/roasted vegetable combo that is out of this world (salmon is one of my favorite foods). I also made a ground turkey taco thing that is incredible, too! Recipes to come, but I'd also love for you to share some recipes with me if you have any! Also, the fact that I am not only discussing things that are kitchen-related, but actually making things in the kitchen is pretty groundbreaking. I would never describe myself as a good chef, however, I've started to learn a thing or two!
Hello Bistro before, but now that I live down the street from one, the obsession is in overdrive. There are a billion different options of things to top your salad with and then they chop it up and mix everything together. It is the best! HB is owned by Eat 'N Park, so they even have EnP ranch (best ranch ever). If you are in Pittsburgh, I definitely recommend it!
Decorating: I decided to add this category since I am in full on decorating mode! I am honestly not very into this kind of stuff, but I am also a perfectionist and have a very clear vision as to what I want my space to look like when I am completed. I just got this dresser this past weekend and could not be more excited. I'm actually planning to use it as a stand for my TV. I needed some extra space to store sweaters so this fit the bill! Hopefully it fits right in with my living room! I also can't decide between this throw in the two plaid options. I want it for my couch (brown leather chesterfield), and both colors work. Which would you choose?
Drinking: I'm super weird and particular when it comes to drinks with 'bubbles'. Obviously, you all know I am a huge champagne fan, and just as champagne has carbonation, I prefer sparkling water over still. I usually drink Schweppes Lemon-Lime sparkling (seriously the best stuff EVER) or Pellegrino. But lately, I've been obsessed with Gerolsteiner Mineral Water. I actually prefer it over Pellegrino (I don't care for Perrier). The consistency of the water is like fine champagne: lots of tiny bubbles that make it smooth, whereas I find the bubbles in most other sparkling waters to be more like a Prosecco in bubbly consistency. I definitely recommend it if you are looking for something light and refreshing!
Watching: ME BEFORE YOU COMES OUT TOMORROW. Can you tell I'm excited? I read the book and loved it, so I can't wait to see the movie tomorrow night! Ok, onto more pressing things, this is going to be a more 'me ask you' type deal today! I'd really love to hear your picks on Netflix shows I should get into or movies I should watch! I have been stuck in a rut when it comes to shows. I just finished Scandal and want a good show that I can really get into! I'd also love your suggestions for movies I should watch. I have both Netflix and Amazon Prime, but by the time I go through all the options, I am too bored to actually go through and watch something! I'll also have a post coming up with all of my Netflix favorites!
Loving: These pajamas are the best ever. I'm a true believer in wearing matching, cute pajamas to bed every night. This might sound nuts, but feeling 'put together' and 'cute' while sleeping makes me sleep better. I love how lightweight they are and love that the shorts aren't super skimpy, but also not frumpy, too. I already have two sets but just ordered two more because they are truly the best!
Listening: My June playlist is in full swing! I'm constantly adding to it, so if you are on Spotify, check it out! If you don't have spotify, you can listen to it embedded it last week's post!
