Noteworthy Days & Events:
May 2 – Inaugural trip to the grower’s market to kick off the season of fresh, locally grown fruits, veggies, and herbs
May 3 – Met K & N’s little one – a precious little gal!
May 18 – Announced some big coming soon attraction news on the blog, IG, and Facebook – here
May 20 – Bailey the Goldendoodle passed away
May 24 – Our second wedding anniversary <3
May 25 – Bought some pots and plants and started to do a little gardening!  We’re growing basil, rosemary, chives, and garlic to start and we have a raised bed to fill with tomatoes, spinach, and maybe a few other veggies.
May 30 – Planted mint with the basil (because apparently that’s a good pairing) and tomatoes, jalapenos, banana peppers, and dill in the raised bed.

Ate: (new recipes & restaurants)
Took this recipe for a sausage and pasta bake and adapted it a bit based on the contents of the fridge and pantry for dinner one night and a work potluck the following day.
Met K, N, and M at Fork & Fig.  It was awesome.  Kevin and I agreed that it was the best new restaurant we’d tried in a long time.
Went out to Central Grill for an anniversary breakfast.
I came home from yoga one evening to find Kevin in the kitchen making this shrimp and asparagus stir fry.  It was so good and he is definitely the better cook of the two of us.

Tell me something about your May!

  1. Hmmmm, let’s see… I ran two 5k’s in May! And I did a ton of walking, made homemade baby food, prepped for my first ever piano recital, and decorated lots of cupcakes. Yeah, it was a busy – but good – month!

  2. Anniversary breakfast! That’s fun!
    Also, let’s compare notes on The Girl on the Train. We both read it this month. Interested to hear your thoughts!

  3. oooh that stir fry!

    I always laugh at Kevin’s book choices. It’s so… Kevin ;)

    The highlight of May was visiting my Ginger BFF and seeing Garth Brooks together. SO FUN!

  4. Hart of Dixie! I love that show! I’ve totally binge watched it as well. :) And I’m glad you enjoyed The Elite! I liked those books so much. :)

    Your little gardening venture sounds so great! You are growing some of my favorites. :)

  5. The highlight of my month was seeing “Walk off the Earth” live with my hubby. Such a good concert, and we got all dressed up for it, which is something we do rarely. Plus, it was still warm at 10:30 at night and felt like summer, at the end of May! Best day of the month.
    A cooking husband is the best kind of husband, hold on to him! ;-)

  6. Your garden sounds delicious!! I would love to grow hot peppers, but I’m not sure they’d do well here. And so sorry to hear about Bailey :-( that breaks my doodle Mom heart.

Comment! Please! I love comments like macaroni loves cheese.
