Five Faves 2-22-19 — Five things I’ve been enjoying or consuming this past week.
It was a pretty slow week for me at work — I have a few experiments running right now and it’s a waiting game (fingers crossed for good results!). Instead, I was able to get a few non-work things done and have a relatively stress-free week.
We invited Katie Lem and her husband, Brian, over for dinner on Wednesday. Katie’s hobby is cupcake/cake decorating, so she offered to bring dessert (no arguing from us!). Of course, she brought a delectable, wonderfully decorated red velvet cake. Follow her on Instagram @vanillabean_counter!
Mountains make me happy. I don’t have any desire to climb Mt. Everest, but nothing makes me happier than a good mountain climbing story. I’ve been reading books on the topic lately, but a local mountaineering club held a screening of Return to Mount Kennedy on Tuesday that I enjoyed! Even PQ, a notably tough critic, gave it an 8/10.
One of my 2019 resolutions was to “be more green,” and these dryer sheets were my first purchase. I have been using these for a little over a month and they work great. No static, even with dri fit material!
This is a Seattle specific recommendation, but I truly believe Cafe Allegro has the best lattes on the Ave. And they are the oldest espresso bar in Seattle…move over ‘Bucks!
I know I said I wasn’t going to read as much fiction this year…but this is an enjoyable bedtime read. I can’t do the whimsical writing justice, but it’s a nice story about two high school boys who begin dating during a summer in New York.
