Links for you to love on....
I finally did it. After years of saying I was going to sign up for the Seattle to Portland Ride, known as the STP, I registered this morning. Surprisingly, I made the cut off in the last few seconds before it sold out. I am #9276 out of 10,000. Committed. I should probably be on my bike and not in front of the computer...
I found out that my favorite Bellingham coffee roasting company ships for free. Get Moka Joe Coffee to your doorstep, the quality is out of the world, I will never have to go with out! After reading about home roasting, I might just have to try roasting myself as well.
If I let myself get all indulgent I could sip at least three lattes a day. I could also add Kahlua to them and be even more over the top. But I don't, because I might just have a job interview or need to go out in public and I don't really want to be that wired or sloshed while trying to make friends. That is just me. I came across a form of green tea called matcha on a wonderful blog called Breakaway Cook. I am hooked. I ordered some. One Latte followed by matcha = seeking balance.
J and I have an anniversary coming up. I just booked us a night in Wall Walla, Washington ( about an hour drive ) at the historic Marcus Whitman Hotel. Giddy! Wine country and fancy old hotel rooms.
I can't wit to read Ree's new Book, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. It is out today.
I am in love with Nora Ephron and am tearing through all of her books, in fact I am about to start Heartburn.
I am not getting compensated in any sort of way for these plugs. Just stuff I dig and want to share.
Coming up next:
Candied Grapefruit Peel, one of the weirdest sweets I have made to date. I might be going off the deep end here folks, but I promise to throw in a cocktail recipe to go the extra mile and show my love to ya'll!
