There is so much to say since it's been almost a week's hiatus from the blogosphere, but I'm afraid a real update will have to wait just a tad bit longer. So until then, I'm going to share some "favorite things". (Because what's not to love about a blog link-up when you need some help in organizing your overflowing, jumbled up thoughts?)
Yesterday Jacob and I discovered that our new favorite store is, without a doubt, World Market. I had been in the store several times, but haven't been not since we married and not since I became keenly aware of the prices of housewares and furniture and linens, etc.
Jacob and I found ourselves marveling at the inexpensiveness of many beautiful and ecclectic household items compared with those that we regularly drool over at Anthropologie and Pottery Barn.
Now my eyes are fixed on fun glassware such as ...
And I fell in love with this ...
I rediscovered a favorite drink of mine. You'll probably think I'm crazy, but I love this. I really do. Take some good ol' apple cider vinegar and put 1 - 2 tablespoons into a cold can of carbonated water (La Croix is a favorite brand of ours. No metallic taste). Enjoy!
You could also throw in some honey to make it ultra delicious. I love carbonated beverages, but the soda thing just can't be done on a regular basis. Furthermore, I've grown up with the Bragg's Apple Cider in the house and for some reason am convinced that ingesting it somewhat regularly is good for one's overall health.
I don't regularly get manicures. In fact, they're a major splurge -- usually with a friend before her wedding or on what's become a yearly date with my Grandma. However, I'm now convinced that I will never get a manicure without splurging all the more and getting the gel-polish that lasts and lasts and lasts ...
Here are my nails after two weeks. You can see where they're growing out, but other than that they still looked pretty darn good.
My final favorite thing is this: I'm back home in Florida and am loving it! More on the trip at a later time The azaleas are calling my name.
