Happy weekend! I’m always curious to see what household item my cats will turn into their next play toy. Watson has no idea how much my heart melts when I see him hold this plastic rose in his mouth.
My friends and I rented a beach house in Apalachicola this weekend. I plan on spending every second in its over-sized jacuzzi tub. Sorry, friends. Ryan’s Irish band is playing at the historic theater there for St. Patty’s Day.
Last night I ran 5 1/2 miles! And then went and died in a Little Caesar’s Hot n Ready. It was too ambitious of me to think I could run for that long and cook dinner. Lesson learned. But I’m only .75 miles away from my 10k goal. My official 10k is at the end of the month.
Anyway, on to the official post. Here are some links for the weekend:
Kiera over at A Pretty Penny did a D.I.Y. Natural Deodorant that seems pretty legit. I’ve tried quite a few handmade deodorants, but none of them seem to stick – literally. She might have figured it out with the coconut oil. She gave it a “platinum seal of approval.” I think I may try it.
Did I ever mention that my favorite food right now is asparagus? I’m simply in love with it and crave it every day. It’s always in my fridge. I know it’s not the greenest veggie, maybe in color, but not environmentally speaking since it’s imported from Peru (yikes!). I try to offset that by shopping locally as much as I can. Here are some small, d.i.y. vendors that I would purchase from. Introducing some great odes to asparagus on Etsy:
This crocheted scarf is asparagus colored. I guess It’s supposed to look like asparagus, but I’m not completely seeing that.
Here’s another piece of veggie apparel I would sport around town. An asparagus shirt is all I need to confirm my place in the coolest and hippest of social circles. Well, maybe not, but I can’t exactly contain my excitement.
This final one is my favorite. I mean, it’s called Asparagus Love, which I didn’t realize was the subject of this post until I started writing it. But look how loving and cozy these asparagus look. That has to be one of the weirdest things I’ve ever said – vegetables being cozy. Regardless, I’m quite charmed by this one. Something about it makes me think of my the way I feel when I’m with best friend.
