wanting | this shirt. so, so much. also, to be an early bird instead of a night owl. just a little. to sleep more.

making | this banana bread (SO good). these banana scones (SO, SO good). and this risotto (you should make it now).

playing | Pac-Man on Google Maps

deciding | on whether or not to buy a fancy planner

loving | Daylight savings time (have I beat that to death yet?). seeing family for Easter.

watching | baseball, baseball, BASEBALL! Also, Gotham is back.

wearing | this shirt, still. this shirt.

planning | summer trips, camping getaways, and a big, enormous, humongous 29th-year project, a new baseball link-up with Kasey

bookmarking/pinning/saving/tweeting | these Sunday routines. this San Diego to-do list. this OMG. these desktop backgrounds. this argument against clutter. these thoughts on authenticity. this list of resources. these thoughts from Toni Morrison.

    Hi Allison! Thanks so much for sharing a link to Little Leopard Book’s risotto recipe!

  • so. you’re really just craving bananas? I wonder if that risotto is on my “tone it up” plan……PS I AM SO EXCITED FOR THURSDAY.

    • Somehow we always have a couple brown ones…and I don’t really like bananas unless they’re in baked goods or smoothies.

      And the risotto doesn’t have cheese or anything so I’d say it’s okay (I’d say that no matter what, but I think it’s on the healthy side).

      THURSDAY! CANNOT WAIT! (crosses fingers people link up!)

  • That margarita looks so good!! I just made roasted banana and chocolate chunk muffins this week too!

    • Oooh, I always want to make banana bread or muffins with chocolate chips but my husband’s weird and doesn’t like me adding chocolate. Next time I’ll just make a separate batch for myself…
