Sunday Odds & Ends

On Sunday, I woke up with the worst throat ever. It was so bad that I didn’t talk for atleast half the day. For those of you who are wondering how I survived, don’t worry. I was still able to jabber on- only this time through SMS.


I stayed in bed for most of the day. Gavin brought me tea and food. In addition to sleeping a lot, I also checked out some more articles on apartment organization on Apartment Therapy and spent some time on Pinterest.


Some very exciting news for today: my plants are growing! The herban garden I planted last week has finally started to show. I can’t wait until it is large enough to start using the cilantro, basil and chives in recipes.

By the end of the day, I had recovered enough to do some things around the house. Nothing too crazy though. I just reorganized our medicine cabinet. (Inspiration article here and how-to here.) I don’t know why I’ve been reorganizing so many things lately. I’m definitely on a roll, though.


Gavin and I watched the Golden Globe awards. I painted my nails to match Anne Hathaway’s manicure. It was a last minute call but I’m really happy with the polka dots.

My Herban Garden

There are a lot of new little projects to do after work this week. Our round table finally arrived! So of course I had to build it that night. I like the color Gavin picked out. It’s so bright and happy looking.

I planted seeds in my “herban garden” (one of our presents from Katie and Jim this Christmas.) There is a cilantro, basil and chives.


Now I just have to wait for them to grow. (That’s the hard part.)


One other thing I did this week was to update the About page on Gavin’s website. His promos are going out next week and lots of big wigs will be going to his site. Now it includes a new bio and updated client list, along with a link to his Tumblr  which is one of my favorite things because the selection that’s up there is so interesting and it includes content from a bunch of his sites.
