♥ Why is Stevie Nicks doing karate? I don’t really care because these photos are amazing.
♥ Speaking of pictures I love, Nylon mag approved this picture of Amy Adams and so do I.
♥ What the heck is going on in my home state? (Really though, WTF.)
♥ In other lady news, what do you think of this list of the 10 greatest working-women in pop culture history? Can you guess which one’s my favorite? (Hint: it’s no. 7.)
♥ I started following Richard Simons on Twitter not too long ago and boy was it a great decision. He’s just so darn peppy, it’s not hard to smile when you read his tweets.
♥ I’ve been working my slow cooker overtime ever since my oven died. Some recipes I’ll for sure be making again include: Asian Pork with Mushrooms via Skinnytaste, Dutch Apple Pudding Cake via Better Homes & Gardens and a Beef & Broccoli via Table for Two that gives my favorite Chinese restaurant a run for its money.
♥ Speaking of food, I recently went on an organizing spree over on the ole’ Pinterest, making dedicated boards to bundt cakes, pound cakes and Thanksgiving. I’ve already got plans in the works for boards devoted to pot pies, dogs in costume and other important things of that nature.
♥ How great are these images from a 1957 Better Homes guide to flower arranging? I just want to hang out in those rooms.
♥ Did you see that a writer from The Cut gave Marilyn Monroe’s diet a try? Bravo to you, lady…I for one, couldn’t stomach all the raw eggs.
♥ Honest posts like this one from Holly encourage me to keep keeping things real ’round here. Very refreshing.
♥ On the topic of honest bloggers, I read Mary Beth’s post on her journey as a runner start to finish and just wanted to hug her when I was done. Super sweet and inspiring stuff.
♥ And finally, I was so humbled to be featured as a Model Citizen over on MSP’s Style Parlor blog last week. And yes, the only comment on it is from my mom! (Love you!)
Sorry that list got a titch long…there’s a lot of catching up to do, what can I say. I’m out the door to treat my two favorite ladies to a birthday dinner in their honor at a fancy restaurant donwtown. Are you taking advantage of any Restaurant Week deals? There’s still time to if you’ve slacked on arrangement-making!
