Random Wednesday

You guys. All week I have just been off. I thought Monday was Wednesday. Can you even imagine how disappointing that was? Then yesterday trapped me at home with a little snowstorm. And today, I’m back at it… sharing some random thoughts with you.
Before my vacation I’ve been making an attempt at eating sort of healthy. But then I saw this recipe. Nutella stuffed brown butter sea salt chocolate chip cookies. Could you ever ask for anything more?
I’m also excited to announce that I am taking part in the Home Depot Patio Challenge. With a foot of snow on the ground its hard to imagine spending time outside. But soon enough, the snow will melt and we’ll be able to spend cool spring nights on our deck. I’m hoping it will look a little something like this (although I know it won’t).
I’ve been doing a lot of kitchen research for an upcoming project and this one is really a front runner for me. Although, we decided to go in a different direction in the end, I will always love the black and white contrast in this kitchen by Jennifer Worts Design.
Last night with the snow coming down in Chicago, we cozied up by the fire, ordered some pizza (yeah, maybe I said I was “trying” to eat healthy, ignore that) and watched the Blachawks being AMAZING. The hyacinth on the coffee table were picked up at TJs and smell insane. Almost too strong, but not quite.

I’m working on a little project, going through all of my old travel pictures and choosing some of my favorites to be framed for the office. It made me realize I have a serious case of wanderlust. I think part of it is my stage of life; very few ties at home other than my work. Every time I get home from a vacation I am ready to start planning my next one.
