Amazing what you can do with only what's in your kitchen! (I'm trying to use everything up before we move.)

Iron Man

Beaker





















Got this at Anthro for $12! Thought it could be a cool vase or a fun carafe for wine or a mixed cocktail. ("Weird Science" by Oingo Boingo was also playing on my itunes while I made this post.)

Suspended Wine Holder
















I bought this a couple months ago at Practical Art when I was there for an art show. My friend Emily gave me the Layer Cake wine. It's a really cute label.

Moved In





















Not even close to being done, but it's a good start. Cass moves in on Monday!!!

Snowy mountains

I took this almost exactly one year ago. It's cold and snowy here...I'm ready for spring. Which is a problem I'm guessing you don't face.

Vintage playing cards

Vintage playing cards

I found these at my grandparents' house. I need to figure out something cool to do with them. Any ideas for me?

It's so cold in my apartment.

Do you need me to help you make the bed?

I took the sheets off the bed to wash them, and when I went back in the room Francie was curled up under all the blankets. Only her head was showing, but when I grabbed my camera she crawled out. It was adorable.

No More "Free Poop"
















They painted over it!!!

Ice cream, soda water, and choice of flavoring...I had strawberry ice cream with pineapple soda. YUM!

Just waiting to be filled

Because we needed more cookies in my apartment.

Shiny new kitchen

Installed appliances

(Here are the rest of the house photos.)

Japanese Soda





















To open it, you have to take that green top and push it into the blue part. There is a glass marble in the blue part that pops into the soda...it was pretty cool, i felt like a 5 year old because i was so entertained and amazed by it. If you look closely you can see the marble with all the bubbles around it.

Drinks from Fogo de Chao



I had a Brazilian drink that was basically rum, limes, and sugar; Adam had an Old Fashioned.

Valentine's Day Brunch





















Grilled focaccia with over easy eggs, asparagus, tomato salad, and herbed butter...and a mimosa of course!

I LOVE Japanese Masking Tape!

Flashback! Valentine's Day 2006

Cupcakes from February 2006

I have this photo, but I don't know if we took any pictures of the cookies. (I still have the recipe, though!)

The Secretary

The Secretary

Okay, okay. This is actually from Wednesday night, but I didn't have a photo for Tuesday, and I wanted to show you both drinks because they were both so cute! I forget what was in this one, but the sugar rim is actually grape kool-aid mix.

Kumquats!


























Sweet, tart, and so adorable!

But I will miss this one.

Apartment Bathroom

Robots & the Periodic Table don't really match our fancy new bathroom, so I'm trying to enjoy them while I still can.

Alley Graffiti




















I'm pretty sure that says "free poop." Which is funny, because as I was taking this picture, I was riding the bike cart, pushing Cassie around, and the power lines above us were full of birds. She started yelling, "Don't stop here! They're going to poop on us!" (Because her sister had just been pooped on earlier that day). So we came to the conclusion that the graffiti is a trap to get pooped on.

Bike Cart




















Some friends of mine own this awesome bike cart! They use it to ride their kids around. They bike to Smeeks in it! I got to ride it and push Cassie around. You have to be really careful, because if you make too sharp of a turn you could totally tip over. I love the color too!

Pancake Day!

Pancake Day

We totally ran out of syrup, so that was kind of a bummer but they were pretty delicious anyway.

Lovely new bathroom

Upstairs bathroom

This is probably what sold us on the house, to be perfectly honest. One month til we move in (fingers crossed)!

Cupola


























This is the cupola above the entrance to La Hacienda.

Neighbor dog!

Neighbor dog!

This dog lives next door to the house. I'm not entirely sure what he's standing on, but the whole time we were checking out the yard, he was watching us. Francie is going to FREAK. OUT.

That's Shitty...
