Happy Thursday, friends! I cannot believe Stephen will be back at work in less than two weeks. Where did the summer go? (Side note: I feel like NY starts school wayyyyy late this year. Am I right?) Anyway, lots going on here as we round out the season and prepare for the new year.
So, I thought I’d share my Weekend Things a little early this week.
// 1. I cannot wait to share this awesome slow cooker recipe with you! It’s based on this Slow Cooker Lasagna from Oh My Veggies. Delish!
// 2. Pun-Fueld Food Map of Each US State via Distractify
// 3. 7 Rules Every Tomato Grower Should Follow via Rodale
// 4. We got a piano! We weren’t actively looking for one, but it’s also been in the back of our minds. So, Stephen and I had a date the other day and checked out a new-to-us antique shop. This 1976 beauty was sitting in the front . . . and at just $160, I had to have it.
We’re going to need to get it tuned and repaired a bit, but it seems pretty solid.
I’ve already been busting out a few Elton John hits.
// 5. Some deals:
- USA-made Pyrex Mixing Bowl set 26 percent off!
- Select patterns/colors of KAVU Keepsake Bag on sale. (Love KAVU bags.)
- Magformers 26-piece set for $32.
- Joy the Baker’s Homemade Decadence cookbook just $20. (One of my favorites!)
// 6. OK. So, this isn’t a deal, but I pooled my birthday money and bought a pair of Birkenstock Paris clogs. And I am absolutely in love. They are by far the most comfortable and cool looking shoes I’ve ever owned. I’m a soft footbed convert, and I always order narrow for the best fit.
I’ll try to snap a better photo sometime soon.
(Check out these peppers from our garden!)
// 7. Have any of you heard of the Circle + Bloom relaxation audio tracks?
I found them while doing some searches on fertility stuff. I’ve only downloaded the free trial track . . . but wow did it relax me. I don’t necessarily think I’d try these thinking they’d result in a BFP, but I could sure use some relaxation.
Just wondered if any of you have tried anything similar for visualization and stress relief.
