a year later...

Way back when I mentioned some Scrabble tiles I had acquired for projects. This is the long awaited result - a beautiful little necklace charm. I was so happy with the finished product!

i heart the kitchen

In case you were wondering, I have been back from DC for almost a month now. Thanks for bearing with me through all the photo posts! I have a ton more pictures that I didn't put up, but it's time to update you on my post-DC life. :)

One of the best parts about coming home was cooking/baking again. I don't consider myself to be a gourmet chef, but there was something so wonderful about getting back into the kitchen, putting on my apron and cooking a tasty dinner for Jeff - I loved it! Since then, I have also tried out some DELICIOUS recipes, including Chris Bianco's Pizza Dough from Martha. It is truly amazing! I am in love with thin crust vegetarian pizza, so I spread the dough thinner on mine. Jeff likes fluffy crust, so I kept his crust thicker for his BBQ chicken, bacon, and pineapple pizza. It turned out yummy both ways!

3 things I love about Georgetown:

1. Iceberry Frozen Yogurt. I had the honeydew melon with strawberries - so amazing! Considering that the closest one is in LA, I'm going to have to try some of the local fro yo joints to see if anything compares.

2. Georgetown Cupcake. Words cannot even describe - you have to check out their website. I tried taking a pictures of my cupcakes, but transporting them in a box on the Metro made them not so photogenic. :) The Peanut Butter Fudge and Lemon Berry cupcakes I had were totally worth the $2.75 each and all the ensuing calories. Amazing!

3. Paper Source. I do love me some pretty paper, and Paper Source had a lot of it. With cute rubber stamps and sets of lovely letterpress flats for a mere $3.50 what's not to love?
