Frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ! . ! . eedoo. !! …!
I’m on the hunt for white pleated shorts.
Which might possibly be the nerdiest way to begin a blog post, but this is where I am in life.
I have some on the way from Amazon. Which means one of two things: secret loophole of fashion gold, or absolutely HORRIFIC. My $18 is on the latter.
Shorts are HARD, man. Why are they so hard? The length has to be just right. The waist has to be just right. The color – just right. They can’t billow out. They can’t be too tight. I hate them all.
Tell me what your summer shorts vibe will be. Or if you refuse to have a summer shorts vibe. (looking at you, Anna)
Show me everything!
Books! Let’s talk books for a minute.
Normally I have a solid direction of what I’m reading next, but I’m b l a n k right now. I’m in the middle of The Family Remains (so good!), but guess what’s on my vanity for the next read. NADDA. NUTHIN’. ZILCH. This is not me at all. Of course I have a GoodReads want-to-read list, and of course I have a little desktop file of books in the potential queue (re: nerd.) But I can’t seem to nail down what I’m in the mood for. Tell me what you’re reading. What I should be reading? I need five books on my night stand to feel like I’m thriving in this world.
Tell me everything!
THAT AND – my mission today is to find flowering vine seedlings for our garden arch. (that and herbs, window box filler, and other plants to fill my pots), but the VINE. The flowering vine is today’s absolute number one goal. I think a vintage Black-Eyed Susan would be beautiful, but if you have other ideas, tell me every one of them!
If you missed my reel yesterday, thanks to the algorithm that is a complete turd, I’ll show you here! I have a lot of bad-ass women in my life who own and run their own businesses, so I went around to each of their workplaces and gifted them a bottle of Bread and Butter Wines! It was such a fun way to celebrate them. Bread and Butter has a female winemaker at the helm, Linda Trotta, which I find fascinating and incredibly inspiring. If you’ve never tried any of their wines, ya gotta! Trade Joe’s carries them, but also here’s a link for you to find where you can get it. The Prosecco is deeeeelish. As is everything, but I’m in a bubbly kind of mood these days. Not a bad place to be.
Loads of gardening, soccer game (if the rain holds off) and finishing my book, bay-buh. And then immediately ordering what you tell me to read next!
From this week, in case you missed it::: Pork Chops with an Herbed Wine Sauce over Polenta. Rustic and delish! And then yesterday I posted a bunch of airport travel and beach necessity links. Whatever kind of vacation or trip you have on the way, hopefully you’ll find something in this roundup that’s helpful. Peep it! Or not. I’m breezy!
Okay so a flowering vine and books and shorts: What chew gawt?
