I'm linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk Blog again. Here's what I've been up to this week!
What I've been Reading
I was so discouraged that I'd never find a book that I liked after I finished The History of Love last week. Luckily, that wasn't Nicole Krauss' only book, so I checked out every book she has written from my local library. Hoorah!
What I've been Eating
I MAILED ADAM BAKED GOODS (and got to eat the extras)! I can't tell you what I made yet.
On Sunday, I had an urge to make baked goods for Adam. I had something super specific in mind, so I googled those words. The recipe I found had a few other components, so I ran (drove) to the store to pick them up. [sidenote: Last year a Walmart Neighborhood Market was built a block away from my apartment complex. I feel terrible shopping there, but it's just so easy and convenient and cheap. Ugh. I'm so grateful I'm moving to a town with ZERO Walmarts. There are WAY too many where I currently live.] I baked to my hearts content, put some in a box for Adam, and brought the rest to work. Once he gets his in the mail, I'll do a post about these delicious goodies (and the major creative mistake I made!).
Also, for date night, I made homemade pizza. Delicious. I used this recipe for the crust, and the rest I made up: turkey pepperoni (DON'T recommend, a fraction of the fat = a fraction of the flavor), pineapple, green bell peppers, italian cheese blend).
Unfortunately, I was over-eager and burned the roof of my mouth on the first bite. This made the rest of the bites less enjoyable. boo.
Most-read Post of the Week
The one where I broke down the six simple steps that I used to save basically 500 dollars on my wedding invitations. I was pretty proud of that accomplishment, plus my designer rocks (she has some SUPER cute prints for Valentine's Day, by the way! This one is my fave.).
Tweet of the Week
Laurin and I were brainstorming possible names for the tea-coffee mixture, and Teafee stuck. What would you have called it?
Milestone of the Week
Only 99 days until our wedding, since yesterday we hit the 100-day mark!!!! I've heard the last 100 days go by SUPER fast. I'm hoping that's true for us.
How was everyone's week? What was the best book you read in January? What was the best food you made (or ate) this week? What's going on over on your blog?
