A Case of the Mondays

The BOY starts school tomorrow, but before he dives back into the books, we had a fun morning adventure in Evanston.  Every time we go to Evanston, we talk about how we wish we lived here (and hopefully one day we will).  I didn’t take tons of pictures today but we did stop at a few of our favorite places.


Tapas Barcelona




Argo Tea




And the used bookstore and Barnes and Noble!




I had a gift card for Barnes and Noble and of course, I can never say no to some new cookbooks.  Luckily, the BOY and I just got a new bookshelf that is currently empty!  I had planned all day to go to a yoga class this afternoon, but I seem to have crashed.  I blame the antibiotic, and since I took my last one this morning, I plan on being back in full energetic swing this week!  So while the BOY headed off to the library to read 40 pages for his first day of class, I watched Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal while folding over a week’s worth of laundry.  Not the exciting Monday or blog post I had hoped for.  But with these new cookbooks, I will have some more exciting and healthy recipes to share SOON!


So instead, I will leave you with a few more pictures of our beautiful cookies from yesterday!

  1. Beautiful cookies! I just got that slow cooker book too! I haven’t cracked it open yet to cook anything but I browsed and there are SOOOOO many recipes!!!

    • I just couldn’t put it down at the store. Luckily I had a gift card and I can’t wait to get slow cookn’! I can’t decide what to make first. I’m looking forward to seeing what you make too!

    • Thanks! I am coming off of almost 2 weeks off when I was super sick so my patience is thinning : ) But I totally agree that time off does my mind and body good! I just sometimes pout about it…ha ha!
