I don’t know about you, but I am loving this warm weather. It’s still a little chilly when I leave the apartment and on my trip home but it is so lovely during the afternoon. My daily lunch hour has been spent eating outside and then walking around. Ideally, I’d like to soak up as much sun as possible because soon, cicadas will be upon us (they’re completely harmless, but they freak me out!) and then I’ll prefer being inside. The good news is that they’re not here yet which means Joe and I will be enjoying a picnic in the park this weekend.
What’s on your agenda?

Last week while I was exploring the area, in an effort to celebrate the warm weather, I grabbed a dozen tulips. As soon as I got home, I popped them into a vase that was given to me at my bridal shower. To my delight, they’ve been thriving for the past week. The tulips also inspired me to get going on our indoor herb garden so all this, in combination with our shamrocks, means there’s a whole lot of greenery happening in our apartment.
I think I’m going to make a habit of adding greenery to our place. I love it.
PS – If you have time, check out Humans of New York. I stumbled upon this site yesterday and spent a decent amount (er, a lot) of time browsing the photos and being reminded of how beautiful this city – and the people in it – can be.

Earlier this week, Joe mentioned that it’s no longer weird when we say “my husband” or “my wife”. This is especially funny to me because for the first few months after we tied the knot, I would instinctively call him my boyfriend (fiancé was not a term I used often). It’s been a natural transition and I guess it just goes to show that time really does fly by. Speaking of time flying, next week is a special week – but you’ll have to stop by to see why :)

Did you know that I considered adding an Irish studies minor while I was an undergrad? It’s true, but sadly didn’t happen (although the trip to Ireland would’ve been amazing!). St. Patrick’s day is this weekend and I for one am excited. I’ve been looking at some fun ideas of food I can make to celebrate – going back and checking out some dessert ideas, like those St. Patrick’s Cake pops, and pinning away (both on my “Eat” and “Spring Things” boards). Ultimately, I think Joe and I are going to do a little bit of celebrating with my family (we’re part Irish) on Saturday and on Sunday have a full breakfast, drink some tea, and possibly check out a parade. Perfect if you ask me.
PS – With Google Reader ending, I’ve made a transition to HootSuite but you can also Follow my blog with Bloglovin :)
