May was a momentous month for so many reasons. Z. and I went to Thailand, I turned 29, celebrated my second wedding anniversary, quit my job and have almost completed my first session of nursing school. #intense, ya’ll.
My blogging schedule is a little off right now, but don’t think I forgot about you guys! We will soon be back to our regularly scheduled program.
I will be doing a separate post about my favorites and must do’s from Thailand, so this will be some regular life favorites. However, it doesn’t feel like a proper favorite’s post without stating that obvious Thailand is one of my faves for the month!
Arugula. Every month seems to have a vegetable I obsess over. Most of spring it is asparagus, which I am sure doesn’t surprise any of my readers. But this month was also arugula. Check out this beautiful arugula and asparagus salad topped with some serrano ham that I made for Z. and my anniversary.
Night Owl decaf coffee from Whole Foods. Now, I completely understand your judgment about pre-ground beans and feel that I rightfully deserve it. But desperate times call for drastic measures, and I needed something to make me feel like I was drinking coffee when I hit those late nights studying.
I have one beauty love this month and it is this fragrance. I tend to love heavier scents, but it getting too hot for that. The notes on this practically scream summer: Mint, Brown Sugar, Lemon, Jasmine, Peony, Pink Pepper, Cedarwood, Labdanum. I recently missed their Jasmine perfume release, but I have my eye on their summer scent. We shall see. 4
For my birthday, Z. bought me this beautiful Olivia Burton watch and I have been wearing it like crazy. I love their designs and watches are one of the few types of jewelry that I will wear consistently. Seriously, look how beautiful this is?
My bullet journal. I started buljo about 2 months ago and while it has been a process of fits and starts, overall, I love it more than any other planner I have ever had. Plus, it gives me something to gush about with the 46-year-old man who sits next me in Health Assessment. (I love things that all me to make random connections).
And my final love? It’s a pure brag. Last year, I begged and pleaded Z. to allow me to buy 2 hydrangea plant. I am notoriously bad at plants, so he was very hesitant to give me anything that required the least bit of effort and cost more than $2. Well, ha! Check out these totally not dead plants, ya’ll!
Let’s see what catches my eye this month, shall we?
