I don't have a theme for this "ten things" other than the fact that they all came from my Instagram feed. I know, I know, it's a lazy way to put together a blog post, but it's what I've got at the moment. And while I usually post these on Fridays, I didn't want to wait. So here, without further ado, 10 Things I Like (after the jump):
1. J.Crew Pixie Pants
2. Sunsets and Dear Friends
I recently spent time with some of my best friends by the beach. Great company, great food, and great fires in the fireplace? Game over.
3. Rialto's Lord Grantham Cocktail
In the interest of full disclosure, I didn't actually order this. But I love that they have a drink named after a character in Downton Abbey. Because the only thing better than booze is booze named after a character in one of your favorite TV shows.
4. Cookbooks from Cook's Illustrated:
Because the recipes are foolproof and the results are delicious.
5. Silly Cow Farms Hot Chocolate and Woody Allen Movies
My roommate and I recently had a lovely evening where we drank the best hot chocolate that
her mom Santa put in her stocking and watched Woody Allen's Manhattan.
7. Dennis Lehane's Live By Night
Because I'm a sucker for a good Boston-based mystery. I'm halfway through this one, and I must say, Lehane definitely wrote it so that it would be turned into a movie; there are many cheesy one-liners. But seeing as I'm having trouble doing anything but read it, I guess he's still got it. Also, Lehane recently lost his dog and has been looking frantically for her. If you find her, he will name a character in his next book after you as a reward. She was last seen in Brookline, and she is a Beagle named Tessa :(
8. Cross Country Skiing in Maine
To ski right next to the ocean...now that's something.
9. This beautiful breakfast:
I wish I had the recipe to share with you for this "breakfast puff," but alas, I do not. I will try to track it down and share it with it's owners blessing. Until then, the pretty picture will have to suffice.
10. Rosie in glasses: Happy New Year
