Uneventful Update

It's been awhile, hasn't it? My life has consisted of school and work and not much else, therefore there has been no real reason for outfit photos. Except the first one. I got that printed crop top at Target for $8. I haven't worn flip flops with an outfit for a significant amount of time, but when I packed up all my summer clothes, I packed up all my sandals as well. Smooth move, Emily. You live in Southern California and clearly didn't think that through. Thank goodness I kept one pair out.

Today I decided to do garden-y things. I cut some sprigs off my Rosemary bush, which is pictured. It smells so good. I guess it's an acquired aroma, but I think it smells so fresh and earthy, I love it. I'm thinking of roasting a chicken so I can use it, and because a roasted chicken is the only thing I know that has rosemary as an ingredient. I also planted some pumpkins. Technically, where I live, you're suppose to plant pumpkins around May, but I saw this really cool idea on Pinterest where you cut open a pumpkin, put soil directly in it covering the seeds and the pumpkin acts like a pot. Then when it starts to sprout you plant the entire pumpkin. Genius, right? I still had pumpkins left over from Halloween. Seriously. They were still perfect, too. So I decided to try it, filled it with composted soil and it worked! It started to sprout. The pumpkins were starting to get soggy so I figured it was about time to plant them. I'm pretty sure I looked like one of the Klopeks off of The 'Burbs digging a hole in my backyard, but regardless! They're all nice and snug in the ground now, and hopefully they'll last until autumn.

I also planted a Bonsai tree. Super random, I know. My brother got it for me two Christmases ago as a gag gift. (For weeks leading up to Christmas he'd just keep telling me, "You're going to love your present. It's going to change your life.") I just now finally decided to plant it. I'm surprisingly excited about it. Who am I, Mr. Belding?

That's all that's really been going on. Oh! and if you were planning on participating in the flower theme granny squares over at Squares That Care you have a week to send them in! And if you don't even know what I'm talking about--go visit Squares That Care! It's really cool (or at least I think so :]) Alright, welp, off with ya me lads and be merry!


  1. 1) I love the Burbs reference. I heart that movie big and hardly anyone I know has any idea what I'm talking about when I mention it.
    2) One of my favorite recipes to use rosemary in is roasted red potatoes. Just cut up some red potatoes and coat them in a thin layer of olive oil and rosemary (and salt and pepper if you're into that sort of thing. I toss it all around in a big bowl to get an even coating) and pop em in the oven. So tasty. Maybe not real healthy, but tasty.
    3) You're still one of my favorite blogs, even when you don't post :)

  2. Just wanted to let you know that I just received my InPink package from your giveaway! It took me a while to decide what I wanted...there was so much great stuff! Anyway, I blogged about it and just wanted to say thanks!
