Hello, sisters! It’s Friday. Here’s a smattering of places on the internet I like to visit now and then.
If I could, I would wear this skirt every day while pregnant (oops, just realized they don’t have the design I own anymore! I have a whale design on a turquoise background). Maybe I should buy a second one? The one I own is starting to show signs of wear. Seriously, it’s so comfortable and beautiful, and can be maternity or non maternity. I love the designs of this company.
I discovered this yogurt recently and now we have to have a constant supply in the fridge. It’s so creamy. When you open it, there’s a layer of cream on top that is almost yellow! Jersey cows are where it’s at. I overheard Uncle Roy lecturing on this subject at the family reunion. He said Holsteins are nicknamed “water bags” for their watery milk, and that when he would milk a Holstein, you could still see the bottom of the bucket after filling it with milk. Jerseys and Guernseys give the best fatty milk. Mmm, cream.
I think I’ll be making this cake for my husband’s birthday this Sunday. It’s a bit fussy but worth it for the deep, dark, earthy, chocolate beet flavor. It’s not too sweet, which is nice. As an aside, David Lebovitz’s blog is one of my favorite food blogs. He always gets it right.
One of my friends posted a picture of this shirt on her Instagram feed a few days ago, and I thought right away, I need to get this shirt for Martha! I have terrible bags under my eyes too, but I have given up on them. Martha, are you still trying all kinds of things to combat yours?
I have been trying out a new hair product recently. It’s expensive but I think I like what I’m seeing. Turns out I have curly hair, and I have been doing terrible things to it most of my life. It’s frizzy, it’s bushy, it’s coarse, I end up just pulling it back or cutting it super short to avoid having to deal with it. I am starting to see a glimmer of hope–maybe I too can have gorgeous curls!
I like to travel via my friends’ blogs. I’ve been enjoying this one recently. Karis and her wife are doing an 8 week tour of South America. They are so organized and have done a great job posting updates from all their exotic locales.
We are still house hunting, and in despair that we’ll never find exactly what we want. Yeah, we’re too picky. Anyway, when we are dreaming, we like to drool over the cabins and cottages here. (Whoa, I just noticed the second cabin pictured is from Alfred! Contributed by Graham Marks! Crazy). So gorgeous.
Last but not least, my husband really needs to do this with his beard! New profile pic, I’m thinking…
Have a good weekend, sisters.
