Ten Things I Loved In May

My friend, Rosie Molinary, made a list and I loved hers so much I stole her idea. And now it’s almost mid-June and I’m here to tell you what was going on last month. It does beg the question – where did the month go?

Here are Ten Things I Loved In May

Things I/We Did

1.      Mother’s Day brunch.  At home.  Jed made waffles for everyone while I chowed on bagels with creamy goat cheese and tomatoes. I somehow managed not to take a single photo. Good food, great company.

2.     Wednesday Playdates. I love this standing date with my friend from yoga teacher training. We have similar parenting styles and personalities so it is just so easy and fun. Plus watching these two interact is really comical.

3.     Yoga.  I went to a bunch of classes, taught and practiced at home. In other words, I remembered why I love getting on my mat and I’m pretty sure I’m going to need to start setting a yoga alarm on my calendar to make sure this happens more often.

4.     Meeting our dearest friends’ brand new baby. Let me just say, adoption is a crazy process and I’m so happy they are now a family.

In The Kitchen

5.     Eating (extremely) local – stone fruit from the next door neighbors and kale from front yard garden (not shown).

6.      Vegan Pie! Finally satisfying a long-held craving. Triple Berry from Vanessa (not shown here, but you can see it on The Food We Make and coconut chocolate pudding pie from me (the one previously afraid to eat and make pie!)

Products (and Services) I Love

7.      Haircuts from Tari at Parlour By The Park and groomed eye brows by Dana at Cezanne Skin Group.

8.      Hand-me-downs for me and little girl – Cute free clothes. What is not to like?

9.      Colored denim and My Style Inspiration Pinterest board coming to life.  I’ve made some variation of both these outfits and it’s made me ridiculously happy.

10.      Blackout curtains – sound sleep past sunrise? Yes, please. This one brought to you by the Princess and the Pea.


So what are you loving lately? I’m always on the lookout for what is delicious in food, drink, fashion, and life. Leave me your favorites in the comments or write a post of your own and link back here.

  2. Wow, sounds like a great month! Ruby is getting cuter and cuter every day, and I love your new ‘do!

    I can’t say there was a lot I loved about May; it was kind of a stressful month. Here’s to hoping June is better. :)

    • Gina: Thanks! It was, although I left out all the crappy stuff, so it evens itself out. Making the list made the month seem a lot better since I tend to dwell on the bad stuff.

      My little one is truly becoming more and more awesome. And naughty. You should come meet us at the park some morning.

      I’ve already started my June list. It’s looking like a pretty good month already.

  3. So much on here made me smile and happy but I must say that pie looks ridiculous in the best possible way and I LOVE your haircut- adorable and edgy. And both those outfits live on my style board, too. Loving playing with fashion!

    • Rosie: The pie. Oh my. My friend said it was the best thing she ate all month. I think I have to agree. It was so good, it was wrong.

      Thanks for the hair compliment! This newly curly hair thing is tricky. I do have the BEST stylist – been with her mostly since my late 20s – except of course when one of us has moved to the Midwest (that would be her. Although I did manage to go see her there and get my hair cut.)…

    • Anna: Thank you! This new curly hair thing is a trip.

      Who knew about black out shades? Crap, now that I’m thinking about it, me. In 1993, I lived in a hotel for 4.5 months and we’d have to sleep with them open in order to get up in the morning. Duh. In any case, LOVE.
