GUESS WHAT EVERYONE! FABRIC HAS BEEN DELIVERED AND WE’RE MANUFACTURING THIS WEEK!!! AHHHH!!!
I’m beyond excited about this if you can’t tell. It’s been a long trek - I can’t wait to have a finished product in my hand and more importantly - in your hands!! More to come on that VERY soon...
This week I’ve been making tons of vegetable dishes thanks to Crooked Row Farm. I’m sharing some of the meals I’ve made over the past few weeks, which were (almost) completely made out of the vegetables and eggs from my sister’s CSA.
Spent some time at the farm this week to get some sun.
Found my rollerblades in her yard sale pile and immediately put them in my car. Watch out Kelly Drive!
Yesterday at our Students Run practice, we took a break for some frog spotting at a nearby pond. The lily pads were blooming, which was so cool. I’ve never seen lily pad flowers until now!
After practice, hung out at Liz’s market and went for a quick jog down Kelly Drive.
Later in the day, Mel and I got some awesome decorations/furniture for our apartment.
You should be excited about this - we're going to have such a cool spot once everything’s put together. Mel decided that she’s going to do a fireplace makeover with big reveal, so you can also get excited about that!
Here’s the “before” picture:
The highlight of my weekend (and week/month/year) was seeing so many old friends on Friday night. My college roommates were all in town, so we had a little reunion. It’s so nice to be all together again!
(The struggle of three short girls trying to hang and lock my heavy bike on top of this bike rack...we were in tears from laughing by the time a nice bystander hung it up and Jen - several inches taller than us - showed up and locked it.)
(My besties since 2011)
My night ended by seeing my friend that I haven’t seen in FIVE years! This is a crazy story. Julie was my roommate at a leadership seminar in 10th grade of high school called HOBY (it was actually held at Temple then and is a big part of why I went there for school). Then Mel, my best friend from high school, goes to University of Pittsburgh and meets Julie where they become best friends. Now Mel’s my roommate and Julie came to visit. This small world stuff blows my mind! But we had a great time and the Independence Beer Garden is super cool.

I biked all over the city that night, but was totally worth it to see these lovely ladies. Being back in Philly feels like home with my old roommates, Mel and my sister all in the city at once. It reassures me of my decision to move back to the east coast.
BUTTTT I have officially booked my trip to California and will be going back in July!! Watch out west coast friends…I’ll be crashing on your couches soon!! ;)
