My Everyday Life Week 12

Here’s what this past week looked like- My Everyday Life Week 12

Nature is DELIVERING here in California. 

Went on a walk with Casey and it was dreamy!

Strawberry season is here too!

What carried us through the week + stuff from the freezer!

Slow cooker pulled pork meat nachos!

And Tacos.

I also made black beans in my Instant pot and had burrito bowls!

What I accomplished last Sunday.

I brought this plant back to life in the front.

Trouble awaits.

GROWING!

Sparkles on the water. It’s pretty magical!

I am also going through a breakfast burrito phase…

Checking on my wisteria.

A canopy of Japanese maple leaves.

On a walk with Neiley. 

Lemon Garlic Roasted Shrimp for the win!

Zeppelin!

I am so fascinated by how dogs greet each other. Every exchange is so different.

The only way I can make my legs look longer. 

Night night boo boo. 

Had lunch with Heather!

Mrs. T was one of my childhood heroes! 

Research at Annie’s. 

WOWWWWWWW

This color was magical. 

Wisteria bloomed this week!

And we’re getting these tiny purple wildflowers all over. 

Write yourself a note on the mirror. Fill it in with shower steam. 

And suddenly everything starts greening up. 

San Anselmo is cute. 

Hunting for treasures. 

TREASURES. 

Sad I didn’t leave with this. 

Convert Studio tag sale!

Trying to decide what to drink..

Thank you for the beautiful earrings you named after me, Ella! 

Lemon Garlic Roasted Shrimp

A corner I stare at when I’m sitting on the couch. 

A reminder we all could use right now. I’m glad I randomly opened to this page.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

This is the time of year when I start really thinking about brunch food. It’s probably because Easter is the biggest brunch holiday in my family and I’ve added this Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake to my repertoire. 

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

An almondy cake base with a cream cheese raspberry filling and a crumb mixture made with slivered almonds and buttery crumbs???

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

I am definitely going to have a hard time not picking at this cake ALL WEEK LONG. 

Time to share some with neighbor friends!
