5 Things to Love

This song is my official summer anthem. It also makes me want to high-tail it back to the South in ways I can’t even describe.

It took me three days to get through this book and that was mostly because I kept embarrassing myself by laughing out loud in public places, and so I would have to put it down for a bit and go distract myself with something a little less laugh-inducing, like election headlines or Channing Tatum.  Seriously, if you’re not reading Jenny’s blog by now you should GET ON IT, and if you haven’t already bought her book DO IT NOW. And when you’re exhausted from laughing out loud you can totally thank me. Or her. Mostly her.

Fresh coffee out of a coffee press. I’ve used this for so long I don’t even know how to use a regular coffee maker anymore, and some days it is the only thing that gets me up in the morning.

The other thing getting me up in the morning these days: smoothies. No need for a recipe here: just blend together fresh or frozen fruit, some Greek yogurt and almond/soy/cow milk with a little vanilla extract (secret ingredient!). You won’t go wrong.

I went to Goodwill to look for some canisters to store dry goods in my kitchen, and this is what I bought instead. But honestly, if Chase wanted me to come back with ONLY the things I intended to purchase, he shouldn’t let me go to Goodwill alone. Or with any of my friends. Or with any money. Same goes for Target.

Also – is it weird that I have these fantasies about owning a huge house one day and filling it with fun, quirky finds from thrift stores and flea markets? And then when people ask “Oh that painting is so lovely, where did you get it?” I’ll be all “Oh, I found it at the bottom of a pile at Goodwill. It only cost me $2. Don’t you feel stupid for buying expensive shit at a gallery?”

Honestly, it’s like I’ve been infected with some new hipster disease that most likely originated in Silverlake. Someone take me to Pottery Barn before it’s too late.

  1. Your smoothie looks awesome – now all I need is a blender. And fruit. And yogurt. Maybe I’ll just go buy a smoothie :)

    Don’t you dare become a hipster – it’s hard enough knowing Bert and Jana are lost in it…
