She is beautiful. Yes it’s a she.
For our first experiment we tried to follow one of the recipe cards but we would have had to travel to the end of the earth to find some of the Aviary’s ingredients. So we threw in what we had and called it a day.
After the first taste we realized that a little bit goes a long way and bold flavors develop quickly. It’s like rolling the dice. No matter if you use the same ingredients and cooking time as the previous drink, the outcome is always different. This is definitely the coolest and most worthwhile kitchen device I’ve purchased in awhile.
On another note how cool does my dad look? He got new glasses on his last visit from D/Vision.
I’m tired of seeing blog posts for cute ways to dress in the winter. Try spending one winter in Chicago and the word “CUTE” will leave your vocabulary. This isn’t about looking cute this is about surviving. Unfortunate for me, I kept learning my lesson the hard way. I didn’t have a functional coat until January 12th.
How is it that I had over 15 coats and none of them work for Chicago winters? I tried wearing every single one with different under garments and I’m always cold and uncomfortable. I’ve come to realize that my coats were made for Seattle weather.
Lucky for me I have a boyfriend who was tired of watching me suffer and bought me a long down coat for my birthday. Now it’s the only thing I wear.
In college, whenever I had a project that required research I would go to the Picture Library, it was like the original Pinterest.
Let say I was researching bananas; the Picture Librarian would give me a folder of bananas images. Then I would look through the folder until I found the most useful images to my project. From there I would check out images just like checking out a book.
It was the Picture Librarian’s job to look through every magazine, tear out images and categorize. This is what life was like before Pinterest, it makes me sound like I am 100 years old.
Anyways, please check out my Pinterest page for daily musings of fashion, home, travel, food and cute animals.
That pretty much sums up my night at the Aviary. It was more important for the drink to sit down than me and to be honest I totally get it. Read More
After being sick for 7 days I come to find out I can’t leave my apartment because it’s cold as !$*# outside. Stir crazy doesn’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling. I’ve watched every movie, reorganized every shelf and I’ve eaten every can of beans. If I don’t leave this apartment soon I’m going to go crazy!
