Sunday. Fun.

On Sunday morning, I made french toast for us. Gavin had regular french toast with syrup.


I had whole wheat french toast with blackberry orange compote. Amazing.


Then Gavin and I did something we had been talking about for probably years- organized and sorted his dresser drawers. It was quite the undertaking but the finished product looks great and is very functional.


Gavin picked out the clothes he wears most often and I put those in the drawers. The rest of the clothing went into the closet in less accessible areas. Gavin was so inspired by organizing (this was shocking) that he decided to sort through the hanging clothes in the closet, as well.


The Grammy awards were on that night so we invited Janice over to watch them with us. I tried to recreate the drink I had last night at the bar. The bartender had told me the ingredients: apple juice, ginger syrup, lemon and club soda.


So I first made the ginger syrup with a recipe I found online. Then, once that was done, I put together the rest of the ingredients. It was really delicious.


Luckily, I have a bunch of ginger leftover so that I can recreate this many times over again.

Here’s the recipe I figured out:
– 1 cup apple juice
– 2 tbsp ginger syrup
– 1 slice lemon
– 1/4 cup club soda

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.
