I’ve been in a bit of a blog funk as of lately, so I thought it’d be fun to catch up on a few little things and hopefully prompt more blogging this summer. One of my favorite blogs that I still read religiously is Simply B. Brooke used to live in Burlington, and then moved to Charleston (dreamy), and always has cute/fun/interesting/inspiring/real life posts. Copying THIS ONE!
ATE <–> Burlington brunches! Hit up two favorites – Penny Cluse + Leunig’s – this weekend. Usually go with a basic brunch anywhere I go – eggs over medium, toast, home fries, coffee, juice – and then try to steal bites from someone who ordered a more adventurous dish. We are who we are :D Also have made this and this and this!
WENT <–> Up Camel’s Hump, a classic Vermont hike. And the trail steward was in a kilt, ha! Swimming has totally fallen to the wayside for my favorite summer activity of HIKING. I haven’t been to the pool since my class ended in May – so swimming across Lake Champlain sounds totally crazy – but I try to get out and hike most weekends. So far I’ve been up Mt Mansfield, Mt Abe, Snake Mountain, Mt Philo, Camel’s Hump, and the Beehive Trail in Maine.
WORE <–>Well, since it was 59 degrees on Sunday, I’m still digging my super cheap, completely faded black Old Navy Super Skinny Rockstar jeans…I wear these out at night and also hiked in Zion in them for days. THEY ARE THE GREATEST. Also love these sandals from Target (on sale for $15!) AND my Cobra Rock boots (big birthday splurge), which fulfill my wildest dreams of living on a ranch out west whenever they are on my feet.
REFLECTED ON <–>This quote…’No union is more profound than marriage’ -Justice Anthony Kennedy #LoveWins
ANTICIPATED <–>Sadly not London because my course didn’t fill for the first time in 8 years (I’m taking an intensive two-week education class on campus instead…), but I’m stoked for Fourth of July in Ohio! Mindi, Tom, Avery, and I are leaving in the wee early morning hours this Wednesday for our annual roadtrip from Vermont to Ohio for a week of 4th of July festivities with our families. I haven’t seen my family, besides Allison, since Christmas so I’m thrilled.
WATCHED <–> Ummmmmm I just watched Napoleon Dynamite for the first time ever this week. M I N D B L O W N. I’m mad it took me 11 years to watch that gem of a gem. Also hit up Inside Out, and breezed through 8 episodes of Grace & Frankie on Netflix. Lily Tomlin is so freaking hilarious!
LISTENED TO <–> “The Promise” by When in Rome (because I’m still thinking about Napoleon Dynamite) and Rickie Lee Jones. A friend was listening to her new album, and then we started listening to ALL of her stuff, and then researching her life with Tom Waits.…got a bit obsessed in the best possible way. She’s dreamy.
