where [the heck] I’ve been.

the truth: taking a mind break. finding myself. and creating goals to make my life in des moines, IA everything I want it to be.

I, again, apologize for the disappearing act I pulled last week. but on a positive note, the content of LLinaBC should benefit from my break. I’ve collected my thoughts, organized them, and have a plan to make this baby better.

besides that, I haven’t done anything too “blog-worthy”. no recent BTS* moments

[blog that shit*].

snow storm QI did survive snow storm Q. frankly, it was overrated where I live. we only got approx. 6″. how’d I survive alllllllll that snow?

moscow mulesI credit the moscow mules [J] mixed up for us, the couch, & nowhere to be! these may be my all-time favorite cocktails. they’re scrumptious, refreshing ..& dangerous.

flowers from [J]

[J] took off on friday for a business trip. he’s gone for seven days. comes home for one. and   leaves again for five more. so he generously surprised me with a bouquet of flowers. they’re absolutely beautiful. and help bridge the distance gap a little.


the next book club read is: The Night Circus. by erin morgenstern.

the night circusthe book club has been a bit chaotic this month. {The Thread Affect} is climbing mount everest, seriously [wonder woman? yes]. & I moved to a different state. so in the midst of all of that, we decided on The Night Circus. and we’ll be posting our reviews together on Thursday, March 7th.

if you’re thinking, this is too short of notice to start & finish a book ..you might be right. but I’m going to prove you wrong [I hope], because I started TODAY. and I’m on page 55. [there’s approx 500]. be crazy with me! get your copy {here}.

I must go. [I hate talking about this. I may be a little superstitious. but ..] I have an interview this morning. wish me luck.

then I have big plans: organize the pantry. to rival those on pinterest.

happy monday.

    Good luck on the interview!! Confession: I had to look-up what a Moscow Mule is because I keep hearing about them but have never had one… and it looks like it has the potential to be my new favorite drink!

      Thank you!!! I was first introduced to the Moscow Mule via Iowa Girl Eats [http://iowagirleats.com/2012/05/13/mothers-day-surprise-knife-block-giveaway-winner/]. I had NO idea what it was either. but it looked so easy to make & so good. so I went for it. from there – I purchased two copper mugs, because they take it to another level! let me know what you think!! :)
