currently: the let's talk about food edition

Happy August (fifth)! Part of me can't believe August is already here. By part of me I mean all of me. Well, except the part of me that is dying from summer heat. That part totally gets that August is here and can't wait for August and September and October to get here and go, too. Hey, apparently it stays hot forever in Texas. 

creating //
 Pilates classes. Sometimes my brain feels like it is going to explode with all of the movements we're learning/observing/practicing/teaching for training, but the good part about that is I don't even need my brain! I just need to be able to maintain a neutral pelvis throughout life and I'm good to go. 

Kidding, it would be good (for my body and for my life) to keep my brain. But anyways, creating new Pilates classes is (mostly) fun. 

wishlisting //
It's Houston Restaurant Weeks right now. Yeah, you read that correctly. WEEKS. Plural. In Charleston, we got ten days and under fifty restaurants for restaurant week. I thought that was heaven. My current heaven wishlist for the next few weeks only includes six restaurants, but that's because Freddie wouldn't let us choose all of Houston's participating two hundred something and made us pick our top five. So naturally I chose six. 

hoping //
If we're being completely honest here, I'm hoping this zit on my chin would disappear. Abracadabra, Mt. Vesuvius.  

eating //
If you follow me on Instagram or stalk me on Facebook you already know this, but Freds made some macaroons this week. He's been talking about how he wanted to try to make them. I've been trying to convince him that I've heard they're super hard and he shouldn't get too cocky. He's been pfsssssh-ing me. And then he made them, they taste delicious, and we've almost eaten all of them. I know I'm supposed to say that I, as the female, am always right, but that's super wrong. Freddie's right. Now hand me another macaroon. 

Poll: how does one spell the word macaroon? One 'o' or two?

watching // 
The Astronaut's Wives Club. Sometimes I think I get caught up in the stupidest shows, and...this is not one of them. I promise. It seems pretty accurate based off of my wiki stalking of the Project Mercury people. And if wikipedia isn't 100% correct then PIGS ARE FLYING.

Linking up, as always, with Anne and Jenna!

I'm so happy to hear you love astronaut wives club because I've been meaning to check it out! Still can't believe Freddie just whipped up some macaroons. Who is he?!!! ;)

Michael bought me a macaron for Christmas kit but they need so many fancy ingredients! Also I was terrified they'd be super hard to make. This gives me hope. And yet I'll still probably screw them up. Also, I think the ones Freddie (the French ones) are spelled 'macaron' and the little cookies that are made with shredded coconut are 'macaroons.'

restaurant week is the best!!

Kylie @ Counselor with a Cape said...

I say them as macaroons, but everywhere I see it printed it's macarons. Either way they are delicious and I am super jealous that your husband made them. I had one last week from this amazing place here called Normal Love Confections. SO SO SO GOOD. I had a mint chocolate one, a nutella one, and a plain chocolate one. To die for!

I've wanted to watch that show! Glad to hear a recommendation!

Meg Taylor said...

Woah! Good job Freddie on the macaroons! They look amazing. Restaurant WeekS sounds amazing, too :)

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

macaron and macaroon are both words, but they are two different types of dessert :) both delicious though!
i think i watched the first 4 or 5 of the astronauts wives club, i need to catch up! i really enjoyed it.

Veronica Lee Burns said...

I LOVE that show! And Houston's restaurants weeks? I know nothing about this?? hhmm now to go learn more

Emily said...

It's so good!! Definitely check it out :)

Anne said...

Haha, love that neutral pelvis comment. My mom is going through pilates training too and has been getting lots of her practice teaching hours in on me lately... I'm loving my free sessions! Kind of amazed at how many different things there are available to incorporate into a workout - I love the variety, but it would be hard to remember all of that! And ooooh restaurant weeks and macarons (one O for the French, I believe).
