Yes, apparently while I was in a flu-induces haze, I forgot to post this, even though I had it READY to go for Friday. Blergh.
I’m finally feeling a little better! How are you doing? Do you have any big weekend plans?
Yesterday Brendan and I went to Princeton New Jersey (which is such an amazing place). We got this really amazing olive oil and strawberry balsamic at Carter & Cavero: Old World Oil Company, and visited a kitchen gadget store called Kitchen Kapers. It was so much fun being there, in this beyond charming college town, just the two of us focusing on each other. It is wonderful being out together, and to feeling like we did those first few months of being together.
Here we are at Carter & Cavero:
Here I am tasting all of the delicious balsamic vinaigrettes.
There was such a huge selection of oils and vinaigrettes, we had a hard time picking our favorites. In the end we got Truffle Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (so wonderful), Strawberry balsamic, Garlic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, Tuscan herb Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, and Frantoio Extra-Virgin Olive Oil… Needless to say, we won’t be needing EVOO any time soon!
Also, here are somethings that I’ve been eyeing all week:

These shoes are awesome. I’ve been wanting to find a pair similar to this for a few years, but nothing really spoke to me like these do.

I love the look of driftwood. Whenever I see a cool drift wood piece it makes me want to learn carpentry so that I could have the ability to make furniture with pieces of awesome wood like the piece above.
Brendan would never let me do this, and I’m not sure I would, but it’s pretty cool, right?
Smitten Kitchen’s Porch Swing sounds truly sumptuous. Now that the weather is getting warming, I see myself having many a gin based cocktail on balmy New Jersey nights. Yum.
Once again, I pay homage to that glorious hue Kelly Green. This room, designed by Christina Murphy is to die for. Brendan and I both thought this was such a great look. Maybe we will replicate it someday.. : )
And I’ll leave you with the sage advice of Ronald Swanson:
Have a stellar weekend! May all your dreams come true.
