CharMarATL

Making these to go with dinner tonight. Brussels sprouts go with barbeque, right? Looking forward to a quiet night at home!

Paige posted this movie trailer for Restless on Facebook and said it was “one of the most powerful and beautiful films” she had seen in a long time. The trailer looks great, so I want to remember to go see it! Looks like it’s coming to Atlanta in October - find a theater near you here.

Latest lunches

Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos to share, but here’s two easy sandwiches I’ve been enjoying for lunch recently! Both use pita bread - the whole wheat pita pockets from Whole Foods are my favorite. I find that if you put it in the microwave for 10 seconds before trying to slice it open, that helps soften it. Ingredients for each version are listed below.

Variation one:

  • Boar’s Head deli meat (turkey or chicken)
  • Roasted red pepper hummus
  • Arugula

Variation two:

  • Tzatziki sauce (recipe found here - I find that if I just keep the ingredients on hand, it’s easy to just to throw it together when I need it and SO good)
  • Cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • Grape tomatoes, halved
  • Crumbled feta cheese
  • Arugula or spinach

What have you been enjoying for lunch? I’m always looking for new ideas!

Michelle shared this video with me, courtesy of tylerstanton.com. This sums up how I feel about Google+ right now - and have now doubt I’ll migrate eventually.

Happy Friday from Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake! You’re pretty much my heroes.

Glasses - Warby Parker

I’ve been needing new glasses for years and stumbled upon this website via Pinterest today. So glad my internet browsing has produced something useful for once! I’ve never heard of this company before today, but it seems too good to be true - great prescription frames for less than $100. And they will send you up to 5 pairs to try on at home - for free? And they support vision causes with every pair sold? Taking a page from Zappos and Tom’s - LOVE it. Now I just need to decide which ones to try!

Local Three

I’m excited to try Local Three tonight. I feel like it’s been awhile since Buckhead opened any new interesting restaurants and I’ve heard good things about this one. I will let you know how it is!

This looks like fun! I support drinking beer to support causes I love.

Summer To Dos

The busyness of the spring seems to winding down! I’m trying to take advantage of a calmer pace of life by spending more time doing things I love or have wanted to do for a while.

In celebration of the official first day of summer, here’s a few items on my summer to do list:

1. Get up earlier.

2. Plant an herb garden.

3. Read more. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years and Cutting for Stone are next on my list.

4. Swim laps once a week.

5. Walk to farmer’s market in Piedmont Park. Buy seasonal produce and cook more.

6. Play more tennis.

7. Cheer on the Braves.

These are just a few things that have been on my mind. What’s on your summer to do list?
