Fun Things for Friday

Hurray for Friday! My brain is looking for a break, especially after writing that epic post about blogging and taxes, so how about a little recap of what's new, what I'm loving, etc?

Budgets are Sexy shirt, navy Toms, Loft striped sweater jacket, Gap jeans

First up is something that's at the top of my birthday list. So what if my birthday isn't until May 1. It gives you plenty of time to talk amongst yourselves and figure out who will get me a Budgets are Sexy's t-shirt. I'm thinking a ladies size medium in white. Or maybe pink. I'm sure you'll all figure it out. And yes, I will proudly wear this shirt as it's the epitome of fiscally chic :)

It's one of the last Fridays in Lent and this discovery couldn't come any sooner. We're loving Trader Joe's chicken-less tenders! They really do taste like chicken. And the mandarin "chicken" nuggets were perfect with stir fry veggies. Bonus points go to the dark chocolate almonds with sea salt and turbinado sugar.

Remember how I was all excited that our rose plants were starting to sprout? Well, spring is definitely here! Look how big they're getting! And our oregano plant somehow managed to survive the winter, which means we've already added fresh oregano to pizza and salads.

Meet the latest addition to our homebrewing arsenal...fresh hops! We planted Cascade and Chinook hop vines and they've already started to pop up. Growing hops seems to be the cool thing to do these days as one of our favorite STL breweries, Urban Chestnut, also planted a mini hop farm this spring.

Last, but certainly not least, one of my pillow covers was on Etsy's front page on Tuesday! There was some major "happy dance" action in my cubical that day :) And don't forget you can get 10% off through 3/31/12 using coupon code LUCKY10.

What are you up to this weekend? Anything big going on? We're going to see a school musical with friends on Saturday.

  1. I love that you guys planted hops!

  2. Front page of Etsy? Awesome!!!

    I love that blazer - super cute.

    Happy early birthday ;)

  3. No way, you planted hops?!? I'm going to have to tell/show my hubby. He and my dad brew beer together. I love your outfit post. And your garden looks great! I planted fresh herbs outside a week or so ago. Glad to be a new follower!

  4. Oh man, I wish your neighbor would fix that nasty fence behind your beautiful roses!... Oh snap, that's me... I swear it's on our to-do list! Maybe you can use your financial wizardry to help us find a way (and the $$$) to replace that panel?
    I like your blog!
