Random Friday

Today has been a random day, so why not a random post?

Scott and I needed a little distraction yesterday and treated ourselves to pure movie magic for two hours. The Artist completely mesmerized me and I'm pretty sure I had a goofy smile plastered to my face the entire time. I can't remember being that inspired by a movie since Amelie. I hope it wins big this Sunday.


I have been cooking a lot (a lot a lot.) And my current favorite food blog is Sprouted Kitchen. Have you ever heard of it? Because if you haven't, you should head right over and drool. Sara is the food genius behind the blog, and her super talented husband is the photographer. Pretty much a match made in heaven. For a dessert party tonight I'm making this Plum Tart with Mascarpone Cream. Two things I learned: One, I should not have bought those peaches, because they weren't that good. Second, there is such a thing as too much orange zest. I should have listened when the instructions said a bit. I'm the kind of person that makes things for the first time when I'm entertaining or bringing a dish. I like to experiment on friends.

My hair hasn't really seen a new do in 5 years, so I just picked up this Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. I'm hoping it will get my hair to look all wavy, and lovely like those ladies I keep pinning on Pinterest. So far, not so much. Maybe I need to pick up a curling iron?

And finally, it was brought to my attention that I never post images of myself. There is a good reason for that. I'm super awkward in photos. But I like this one that Scott took of me and Lucy and so why not share? This is me, sweaty after a bike ride. And that is Lucy's back. Voila!
