J. Crew February 2011 Catalog

Might have had some quiet time in my 'room' this morning looking at this month's catalog online. Not quite the same as having it in hand, but better than nothing! :)

porch.

Oh that I were somewhere in or around this house right now. Madrid is a great city. As far as city's go... it's a great place to live. But I am quickly realizing that I am not a city girl. At least not yet (probably not really ever). I like being outside. I like my garden. I like not-city air. I like bonfires and seeing the stars and quiet. Right now, I would like to be sitting in that chair on the sunroom porch with Pride and Prejudice, drinking some tea.

I would drive this car

I wish I was having a Strawberry Creme with Amiah today
or an iced tea with Jill.

breakfast

Basically since January 11... food consumption has been a little bit... lets just say "survival mode." We're in temporary places, trying to find grocery stores, we seem to be hungry all. the. time. because we're walking around non-stop. Needless to say, I haven't been eating the greatest, at least not like normal. This is today's breakfast (more or less... can we call it breakfast when I eat it at almost noon?) and it makes me feel very normal.
Also we don't have an oven here and I can't wait to move into our permanent place so I can buy groceries like a normal person! and bake a cake! or cookies! or whatever I want!

cake

Right now, all I want to do is bake a chocolate cake.

Do a pull-up.
I don't think I will ever have the upper body strength to do a pull-up, but Blake says I can so I'm going to try...

To everyone at home...

Although I am actually really really thankful for the Internet and the way I can instantly connect with friends and family at home... its just not the same.

Try oysters. Because I can.
