Little Things to Love

Long time no write! I would say long time no read, but that would be a lie, I’ve still been stalking on y’all’s blogs like it’s my job. Regardless, I have been slacking, and I am happy to be back! I figure there is no better way to kick it off than with a show of little things I am loving lately!

Costco. Dan and I made our Costco run on Thursday night and I was kind of out of control excited. I know it’s just paper towels and water bottle like products in our cart, but I still go crazy for it. And of course, the amazing fro yo adds to my enthusiasm. I am hoping some of you love the superstore as much as I do and aren’t just staring at your computer thinking ‘Kate is a weirdo…’

Upcoming Getaways. When the Southwest email arrives in my inbox to tell me about an upcoming trip, I kind of lose my ish. My Bachelorette Weekend is now a couple weeks away, and I am so excited to spend quality time with my sister, soon to be sister-in-law, De, and my best friends!

Farmer’s Market. Dan and I took a trip to the Houston Farmer’s Market yesterday and I loved it! I am all about eating local and talking with the people at each booth. Even in a big city, Farmer’s Markets bring a sense of community. I will admit, it did make me miss my hometown and my Iowa sweet corn.

Sitting Poolside. Yesterday afternoon, we packed the cooler with food and drinks and took advantage of the perfect weather. Dan grilled burgers and veggie burgers, and we spent a couple hours doing nothing but lounging.

An Unexpected Trip to the Farmer’s Market

I plan on making tonight’s post a short one, because let’s be honest, by the time I make it to the end of the work week, the fatigue and random thought train is usually making its way through town.  Chugga-chugga-choo-choo

Dan and I stopped at the grocery store tonight for some essentials; a new toy for Nola, Puffins, a rose ylang-ylang bath bomb, and Bisquick. Okay, so maybe ‘essentials’ was the wrong word. Our purchases were more along the line of impulse buys. Regardless, I went a little boy band crazy when we parked and realized that there was a Farmer’s Market in the lot.

ImageI love Farmer’s Markets. I think it is so fun to walk around, to meet the people behind the booths, to try new products, and of course, to take delicious food home! Tonight, we decided on Pineapple and Habanero Sauce and Raspberry Habanero Jam.

ImageI may or may not be pairing these with some cream cheese and wheat thins tonight.

In other news, holla for the weekend!! One of my best friends took the bar exam this week and I am already looking forward to celebrating with her this weekend. Perhaps at a different type of bar. With a margarita in hand.
