Nashville has been wet and rainy for the last week and a half. And while the clouds have given me a nice excuse to curl up and read a good book (finally finished Julie & Julia, now on to Lena), we’ve been craving exploration. Any time I’m cooped up in a space for too long, I start to feel a little claustrophobic. Finally it looks like the weather is going to clear up in the next few days!
In our apartment, pictures are slowly being hung and drawers organized. Our place has begun to feel more like home.
Cooking has become more regular, thanks to Blue Apron. Also baking, thanks to Pinterest. I made apple bread the other day, but I sort of wish I had just made apple pie.
Onto the links!
/ / Kate reviews Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham.
/ / Niamh’s tutorial for paper honeycomb crowns. These would be great for kids (or adult!) birthday parties or perhaps a Christmas party.
/ / We had been warned about the lack of a pizza scene in Nashville. Coming from Chicago, where good pizza is literally at every corner, I knew that would be hard to get used too. Ashley recently visited a pizza place in town that promises to be in the style of Chicago deep dish. I’ll ditch being dairy-free for a night and let you all know if it lives up.
/ / Netflix revealing Gilmore Girls would be available for streaming didn’t really phase me as I already owned all seven seasons on DVD. Prior to Twitter and the social media storm, it was hard knowing if your beloved show was in fact beloved. I was that 14 year old girl on fan forum websites discussing favorite “shippings”, looking up Nielsen ratings, and hitting record on the VCR each week. I knew a couple people (besides my family who became hooked) who watched Gilmore Girls since the beginning, but over the years I’ve also loaned my copies to new fans.
My heart, while a little shocked, has been so happy to see the outpouring of love thrown on Gilmore Girls.
