scenes from a saturday

Last Saturday was prom for one of the local high schools, which means churning out lots and lots of custom made corsages and boutonnieres. It’s finger-cramping work, and it kind of blows my mind that my senior prom was almost a decade ago…

Think I could rock this every day?

We also had a cute pick-up order for a surprise 60th birthday party!

Oh, and this is happening at my desk right now for APP. Heaven help. I hope to report a clean workspace by the end of the week…

  1. Ahh looking at this reminds me that I (still) have my corsage from my junior prom 5 years ago (it’s in the freezer!) I’m not sure why my mother wanted to keep it, probably because I was her first to go to prom but I think we both forgot about it..until now.

  7. You’re worried about your desk? Mine is usually covered with fruits and vegetables that I have every intention on eating during the day or bring home. Yours looks more fun! I had to do the math to remember how long ago my Senior Prom was. I remembered I wore a black dress, but can’t remember the corsage. :( Those little roses are adorable.

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
