Wednesday Ramblings

five thingsI think it’s a good day for a quick chat.  Five quick things I’m loving lately.  So fill up your coffee mug and kick up your feet.

Sage & Citrus

1.  Sage & Citrus is burning constantly in my home right now.  It’s like late winter meets early spring and it’s glorious, my friends.

2. Games.  We don’t have cable.  So we sit at the table with the next best thing.  Which is obviously Monopoly and Dominoes.  I’m not even kidding.  If you haven’t played a game in a while you should definitely do it.  Also, I really prefer to win, just in case you were wondering.  Also, if you were wondering, I did win.  Paul was not so excited about that.

3. Cinnamon Rolls.  I think they really are at the top of my list of favorite things ever.  SO much so that when I saw Tracey post these amazing cinnamon rolls this morning, I rearranged my Pinterest boards to devote a whole board to cinnamon-sugar, the outstanding combination of goodness that it is.  It definitely deserves its own board.

4. Sawhorse desk.  I am just head-over-heels in love with this thing.  In other news, Paul’s list of “things to make for Cassie” is overflowing at the moment!

grow your own green onions

5. Growing my own green onions.  I tried it once before and it failed but I use SO MANY green onions.  They are a staple here and I was convinced that I need to try it again so I did and it’s actually working!  I think the trick is sunlight and changing the water often. I’m thoroughly amazed!

What are you loving these days?

    O. M. G. You’ve created a monster. I literally eat so many green onions that my husbnad regularly remarks that I’m turning into one – I had NO IDEA you could grow your own. Woohoo – thanks for the tip, Cassie!!

    On that cinnamon sugar note, the apples at the store have been rotten lately so I have taken to slice them all done, put them in a pot and cook them till they are soft with cinnamon sugar mix on them. Best thing ever and good all week for lunch! Going to make some more tonight…

    Oh Cassie I love that candle!! I forgot about it actually, need to pick one up ASAP.

    And I know what you mean about games, we recently introduced the kids to UNO & we have an ongoing game going a few nights a week. Love it 🙂

    Shane refuses to play board games with me anymore because he think I’m too competitive but I love Monopoly 🙂 I *need* to try that green onion trick, I go through them like crazy too!

    Thanks for sharing my cinnamon rolls!

    We have a pretty impressive collection of games here, mainly because we don’t have TV, so many of our nights are spent playing Trivial Pursuit and Carcassonne. Although, we play much less than we used to, I think Gilbert is tried of losing.

    I smelled that candle a couple days ago when I was out shopping! It smelled amazing…if I didnt already have about 6 at home I probably would have picked it up! Im candle addicted!
    We play games sometimes too, as an in-home date night, cheesy, I know lol but with two kids, Ill take what I can get, PLUS youre right, its actually a TON of fun!
    The green onion growing..Ive tried countless times and failed, and for whatever readon when I tried again two weeks ago, it worked! Yay! P.s. what is tied around them to hold them up? hair elastic? hah

    Ughh I am so obsessed with candles. I also love game nights and I HATE losing. I just might be a tad bit competitive.

    I love that yankee candle. It’s my fave. Monopoly is always our first choice too. Especially if there’s no power. It could go for hours.

    There’s always a candle burning in my house (when I’m home!)…and my husband is forever requesting cinnamon rolls. They make the best bribery for his ever growing to do list 🙂

    A cinnamon-sugar pinboard is brilliant! Those lighter cinnamon rolls also made me swoon 😉
