spring got skipped

Wow, it really feels like summer has hit California! Though it has been warm in the middle of the day, today was the first time in a while that it was warm even early in the morning. It really just “felt” like Summer – like instead of getting in the car to go to work, it felt like I was getting in the car to go to my last day of classes before summer break started. Or, maybe I was just wishing. =)

It was super nice last night too so Jeff and I took advantage of it and went “out” – first to Bed Bath & Beyond! Haha! That’s my kind of going out. ;) I had a $5 off coupon, so I came home with these (ah shoot, I probably would’ve gotten them even without the coupon hehe…)

A drying mat and drying gloves. I live in a super small place, so I really don’t have a lot of room. So whenever I bake, I of course am drowning in dirty dishes, and it’s easier to dry and put them away right away, just to make space. This mat and these gloves help a lot!

Of course, Bed Bath & Beyond is most definitely not Jeff’s idea of “going out” so we went to the movies and watched “Limitless.” This is my favorite kind of movie. Not completely action, not a cheesy chick flick – just fun!

There’s nothing more I want to do in such nice weather like this (nice weather to me is when it’s warm during the day and night – which is why I absolutely love love love Chicago in Spring/Summer) than take a drive into the city (aka San Francisco). San Francisco is usually cold, so I love to take advantage of it during the extra nice days. That picture above was taken last Saturday when we went into the city, when unfortunately, it was pretty chilly.

Instead of going into the city though, I did the next best thing after work – bake! It involved grating butter.

Recipe to come soon! All I’ll say now is it’s been a very delicious, and very blueberry-y week!

P.S. I think that dog up there in the first photo is super cute. It looks like a stuffed animal! I photographed it randomly at the farmer’s market, but I really wanted to steal it. I want one!!!
