What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! What are you doing this weekend? Hubs and I are going on our third date (!!!) since becoming parents. My mom is coming over later this afternoon to play with Huxley while we get all fancied up and head over to a complimentary media-only Ocktoberfest tasting menu dinner at the Red Stag Grill. I’m so excited. Expect a full recount of the event early next week.
In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*This place is pure magic (via Amy).
*Loving ‘the xx.’
*Been tucking into Luisa’s new book every night. SO good.
*N.C. residents, here’s help for ravaged squashes and pumpkins (Sigh. I really, really love pumpkins and want to be able to grow them naturally).
*10 multipurpose ingredients for a homemade household.
*Infused basil oil.
*Sowing the chicken salad bar.
*Super excited about Cloud Atlas (the Wachowski’s are back!).
*Just discovered The Lumineers (thanks to Amanda).
*Sweet Paul shares my love of plaid.
Need some more pie inspiration? Check out my tips for Blue Ribbon pies, plus recipes, over at my pie blog on Mrs. Wages.
Also, my English Lessons post for Verve is up this month. I’m chatting about how the places we live inform the people we become.
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
