Take 93

7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
On Friday last week, I made an appetizer for a faculty event for Brian.
It was this wonderful moment when I realized that there is absolutely no reason to not enjoy some of this appetizer, thanks to my thrift-store found ramekins!

That's right, no need to deliver a one-dish-food with a corner gone because you had to taste test it... Just put your own portion in a ramekin and bake it! Awesome.

Dear Brian and Beth,

Thanks so much for the fan.
It's become such a good friend to me, keeping me company.
I even chat with it.

 Brian did a little research and discovered:
1 glass of red wine = 3/4 of a clif bar

Chew on that.
Or sip on it...
Whichever you prefer.

Thanks to Pinterest, I turned an old cami into a nursing cami.
I've been less than impressed with Old Navy's nursing cami, and I like the comfort of my old faithful being re-purposed to work for this season of life.
(And yes, George slept on my lap like that while I did this.)

I have a number of alarms that I want to go off daily, but I don't want sound.
It turns out that iPhones think that this is an unnecessary feature...
You must choose a ringtone.
Well, I took the advice of a random "get around it" website and...
Will record a ringtone in the silence of my basement so that my alarms will only vibrate.
I'm pleased.

I wanted to find a way to "decorate" for Lent...
or maybe undecorate?
So, I took away our favorite table runner from our honeymoon in Mexico

and added a vase of bare sticks.
I discovered that creating a "bouquet" that looks good from all angles is nearly impossible...
at least for me.

Many thanks to Brian, Beth and Mairin who watched George for an hour last night and for my husband who planned a surprise date sans George to a wine tasting and sandwiches at Chicory Cafe, where we went for our first date. Love that guy. 

Thanks for hosting, Jen!

  1. #6, nice centerpiece, I do the same thing! It reminds me when I walk by that it's Lent.
