that's a wrap

happy friday, everyone!

this week was kind of a blur in the way that the week after vacation always is. 
notable accomplishments: 
+  i went to bikram twice (and plan to go twice more over the weekend!)
+  i did NOT purchase anything from j.crew's new fall arrivals. yet. #willpower
+  i am finally less sunburned. remember that citrus mint lotion from whole foods? lifesaver.
+  i may have another craigslist whisperer chronicle; if everything comes together, i will have details on monday!
+  the boyfriend made amazing chicken lettuce wraps with peanut sauce for dinner last night. 
i would share the recipe, but he just made it up. 
yummy. and healthy!

tonight is date night at the apartment, and we are making this tyler florence gnocchi dish with peas, prosciutto, and lemon ricotta. it rained pretty much the entire time we were in florida, so sunday morning was spent reading the paper and watching food network. when this episode came on, we looked at each other and said, yup, we need to make that!

otherwise, i am tucking in for some reading, relaxing, and secret single behavior while the boyfriend is at a bachelor party on saturday. what is secret single behavior? well, shannon darrow of i love your crazy did a great post on it, but basically it's the stuff you do that no one knows about. my signature ssb? 30 rock marathon with wine and popcorn. in comfy clothes. probably with a magazine or two.  

best wishes for a relaxing weekend!


  1. ugh my SSB is so shameful....cheetos, mushroom pizza, mint chocolate chip with rainbow sprinkles and reruns of beverly hills 90210- preferably the late college years...

    1. that is incredible SSB. honestly, i am speechless.

  2. As soon as I saw that photo, all I could think was OMG I NEED TO MAKE THAT! It looks delicious!

  3. I hope you are having an amazing weekend. My weekend has been full of relaxing and I couldn't be more thankful for a calm weekend.

    I am having a giveaway on my blog, hope you will stop by and enter. Sunny Days and Starry Nights
