I have some plants growing and I am excited because they are looking so healthy! I have never grown my very own tomatoes before, and well...they are growing! Here are some photos of my baby garden in planters. I wish I had a real garden, but this will do for now. Someday!
I have cherry tomatoes, rosemary, boxwood basil & oregano.

Thank you My Kitchen Moovement for the recipe!
These were so easy, and so delicious! My friends RAVED about how I am the best pickle-maker in the world. Even though this is the first time I've ever even dreamed of attempting to make pickles. They were definitely garlicky and dill-y. And VERY crisp and tasty. If you are even considering trying to make pickles, this is the recipe to use. YUM

Lonny Magazine makes its debut! Many people (like me) are missing Domino Magazine so badly. I am not saying it has been replaced...but a delightful new online publication is making a great attempt at filling some big shoes. Be sure to check out Lonny Magazine!

So, I had a weekend without my boyfriend and wanted to have some fun! So, first I painted my toenails, because he hates the smell, and I've needed to do it! I washed my car at the self service wash..so satisfying, then went to the Farmers Market, which is my fave thing ever.

A great alternative to Evite.com, I have discovered the website Pingg.com. They find great up-and-coming artists and use their art for the invitations. The invitations are available for free to send as email invitations to all sorts of events, or they also have an option to have them printed and sent to you for a reasonable cost. Check them out for your next event!
We just moved to San Diego, CA (not the cheapest city in the world)...so I am trying to find new ways to save $$. A great source of entertainment is the Farmer's Market. We go to the Hillcrest Farmers Market. It's a great sunday morning event, lots of people watching, good smells and great to talk to the actual people that grow the fruit & veg. And it all tastes WAY better than the stuff at the grocery store, especially the peaches and cherries!

Another fantastic site for free computer wallpapers is Kindred. I love this bunnies one by Fifi Lapin, but there are many more to choose from and they are always updating!
Nate Williams is a very very talented artist. He offers some of his art for FREE as computer wallpaper backgrounds on his website. Just download! Thanks Nate!
I love finding free printable labels to use on spice jars, or organizing craft thingies. Creature Comforts has a whole bunch of DIY and free printable labels, cards, and much more. What great ideas! I can't wait to re-do my spice cabinet with some of the cute labels.
Lately I have noticed some of my favorite restaurants are offering Recession Specials. In Atlanta my favorite place for a burrito, enchilada, taco, nacho, etc is El Myr. Right now they offer a special burrito and a draft PBR for $5.00. Unbeatable food and unbeatable deal.
At the end of a rough week sometimes the best thing to do is sit with good friends. My lovely friend, Emily, made me a delicious dinner, sipped some cold beers and sat in her sunroom full of plants. She had a beautiful arrangement of old random bottles with big blue/purple hydrangeas in them. I wanted some for myself! She just plucked them off of a big hydrangea bush in front of her apartment complex. So, I did too. Free beautiful flowers and spending time with good friends...they make me so happy!
One of my guilty little pleasures is to sneak past all of the 13 year old girls in Forever 21 and buy some cheap cute jewelry. I tend to break everything and change my taste every five minutes, so cheap jewelry is for me!

I thought I would share a favorite website. I love a good bargain, and I love things that you can't just buy anywhere. For years I have been shopping at PearlRiver.com. It's a great place for a fun gift, party decor, kitchenware, and tons of paper lanterns.
