Album of the Week

In things that I’ve been listening to since it was released. I feel like Kevin and I have been waiting for this Sam Smith album FOREVER. And I say that because remember when I first posted about Sam Smith and it was just a very simple acoustic performance of his song “Latch” that I found in my Pinterest feed? That was back in May of 2013 and now you can’t go anywhere without anyone not knowing his name. The album is packed full of songs that I can’t get enough of listening to, but I’m sure I’m not telling you anything that you haven’t heard before. If you haven’t gotten the chance to listen to the full album – well here ya go! Enjoy!

Five Favorite Pins: The Great Outdoors

I am very fortunate that where I live has a pretty decent set up of a hot tub, grill, pool, and outdoor fireplace for community use and even more fortunate that I have my own personal balcony. I haven’t had any parties here yet, but every weekend I catch my neighbors throwing events and wonder someday if I’m ever going to do the same. Last weekend, Ashley mentioned to me that I should take the initiative and throw one myself. I’m still thinking about it and probably won’t make up my mind until the last minute. But that got me to thinking. I have a great space now, but the type of party I want to throw down the line will hopefully be in my own backyard and won’t have to be shared with “the community.” I’m really looking forward to when that day comes and I’ll sort of get a taste for that when I throw a party at my co-worker’s place at the end of the summer. Here’s some inspiration for now on some of my favorite backyard spaces!

Beating the Heat: 5 Agua Fresca Recipes

[Roasted Strawberry Agua Fresca]

I spend a great deal of time every day adding to my Pinterest boards and realizing that I never do anything with them. Since I moved to California, I haven’t cooked a real meal out of my kitchen so there’s just no use for recipes. We also discontinued “Take Me There” Fridays. However, I’ve given this a lot of thought lately. For how much time I spend on the website, I should really be putting it to better use. If I can’t do anything with all of this inspiration, I should pass it on.

So when I can or when I feel strongly towards a particular idea or a theme, I’ll be posting 5 pins centered around that.

Several weeks ago, we had the best agua fresca we’ve ever tasted during brunch at Slow Club in San Francisco. I still haven’t forgotten about it. Later that night, we decided to make our own watermelon lime agua fresca. By hand. No mixer. No blender. Just chopping everything up and squeezing it into a strainer. It turned out amazingly and our friends loved it too (or they were just being nice to us.) The past few weeks in the Bay have been scorching hot and the only thing to cool down with is a glass of agua fresca so here are 5 recipes that I would try and make myself…or would purchase if I were out. That last one seems more likely.
