Watching :: Here’s Lucy reruns on Hulu, The Newsroom, Breaking Bad and eagerly awaiting the return of Sons of Anarchy in September!

Drooling over :: Michael and I are ready to make this delicious zucchini pasta tomorrow! Recipe here!

The latest Kidrobot Dunny Series 2012 has been out for a bit and I have been on the hunt for the Junko Mizuno dunny (clear with wavy ‘hair’ and pretty designs). While searching the interwebs, I noticed a few characters from a Kidrobot mini series that existed in 2009. I’ll peruse ebay and see if I can score some on the cheap. Mizuno is one of my favorite Kidrobot artists along with Tara McPherson, Koralie, SupaKitch, Frank Kozik and a slew of others.

Excited about :: Taco Tuesday at The Tin Hat is today. $0.69 tacos and cheap draft beer is a good way to spend a Tuesday night! But shhhh, don’t tell anyone…it gets crowded.

My new ’78 Flying Dutchman moped! Her name is Lucy. She makes me smile so I appropriately named her after Lucille Ball. Anyone who knows me would not be surprised by this.

Visiting Texas next week. Specifically seeing family and old friends and checking out the old stomping grounds. If time permits (since I am there for work) I’d like to hit up some old favorites; Meddlesome Moth and Good Records in Dallas, Rahr Brewery and maybe more ink by Justin in Fort Worth and perhaps some late night shenanigans at Rubber Gloves or Hailey’s in Denton.

Worried about :: Visiting Texas…because of the crazy heat. I’ve grown accustomed to living in a city that doesn’t exceed 80 degrees. Bands are smart not to tour in Texas in late August which is why there seems to be nothing going on music-wise in the area.

Listening to :: (tonight anyways…) Gusgus, Erlend Oye, Why?, Of Monsters and Men, First Aid Kit and KEXP streaming.

Drinking :: Unsweetened Arnold Palmers and Session Lager. All this time I thought Session and Red Stripe were the same. Doh!



Drooling over: The cinder block planter bar and dining room transformation at Design*Sponge are swoon-worthy! I am gathering design ideas by the minute and these are total keepers!

Elsie’s delicious ways to mix up an Arnold Palmer over at A Beautiful Mess are brilliant! I love all kinds of tea, especially black tea.

Watching: Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Poker After Dark. We don’t watch shows live so we are catching up on our queue. This can be challenging with soooo many spoiler posts on the twits and fb.

Excited about: Our new rental house! We will be leaving the Greenlake/Ravenna area and moving 10 mins away to the Ballard/Phinney Ridge area of Seattle. While we will miss our favorite places like Atlantic Crossing, Pies & Pints, Cafe Racer and Latona Pub, we are stoked to try out some new bars and eateries within walking distance of the new house.

Also, my little sister is currently in Italy for a six week art program. I am super excited that she is able to have this experience with her friends. Traveling overseas does change a person a little bit, in a good way of course. I love that she’s the only one in the photo not sketching and just taking it all in.

Eating & Drinking: We have been eating our greens, as we normally do but they are from Michael’s garden! So far we have lettuce and spinach! It’s crazy how something that comes from your own backyard can taste way better than store bought produce.

I have been drinking lots of green tea lately. Even though it’s June, the weather in Seattle is a bit chilly (it was warmer in April!). Once the outside temp warms up, I will get on the iced tea bandwagon.
