One more peachy thing.
And then we’re moving on to all things pumpkin.
And then before I know it it’ll be Christmas time and then it’ll be i’m-getting-married time. But for now it’s just cornbread cravings time. And all these bloggers keep like feeding the cravings with all their wonderful ideas. I just can’t get enough.
So the other day I told a story about how I couldn’t focus because all I wanted in life was a burger. I still haven’t eaten a burger, mainly because my fiance said something about “cutting”…with translates to no Friday night dates to Smashburger + froyo. Lame. I’m over it though…because now that lack of focus is because of a serious scallops craving. I really, really want some scallops. Which means my cravings have gone all sophisticated on me. So someone pu-lease send me a recipe for some life changing scallops. A recipe that’s easy and not intimidating. Cooking seafood terrifies me. I’ve got salmon and tilapia down but everything else is frightening. One too many food bacteriology classes in college will do it to you.
In other news, I took a Barre class this week. I liked it. In the same way that I like yoga or pilates. No cardio so it’s great when I need a weekly break from running/spinning/stairmaster-ing. To get to the class I had to drive through an area of Houston called “Bellaire” and I can never drive through there without thinking, “I grew up in Bel Air, Warner! Across the street from Aaron Spelling. I think most people would agree that’s a lot better than some stinky old Vanderbilt.” Name the movie.
So my best friend just bought a ton of peaches from a farmers market so this post is for her. It should be noted that I know we are meant to be best friends because she recently broke her toe while trying to make a space on a counter for some cookies. Anyone who breaks a bone in the name of cookies is the kind of person I want to spend my life around.
And speaking of my life, which I do a lot around here. I can’t stop wearing this shirt. Seriously. It’s perfect with EVERYTHING. Jean shorts, business casual type capris, tucked in with a skirt, worn with a blazer…see?! Told you. I want to wear it all the time. If you’ve seen me in the last week I bet I was wearing it. But a total bummer was for my internship program we took a picture of all the interns and guess what I was wearing? yup. So now I have to pace myself on how many times I wear it because I took a picture in it and what if I go to a happy hour and pictures are taken and I’m in it again?! That’d be like the worst.
Actually, according to the fiance the worst is when I wear black with blue. Whatev. Totally not a big deal. He made the recommendation that I change before we went to dinner the other night because my shorts were navy and my shoes were black. Life would have been so much easier if I would have been wearing my favorite shirt because he wouldn’t have noticed my navy + black combination because he’d be distracted and be all like, “wow that’s totally a great shirt.”
The shirt also comes in 8 other colors…and it’s on sale now. I think I should buy them all. And then everyone could refer to me as the girl with the flowy shirts in all the fun colors. And I would always be happy. See how that works?
