Happy Birthday POC! & Other marvels <3

Happy Monday! Hope you had an excellent weekend : )
First things first, since it is Monday and around here we like to share some marvelous things.. this first one is super marvelous..


Happy birthday/ blogiversary to this little blog of mine.
untitled (35)
I can honestly say this past year has been more amazing because of this blog. Something that I once thought would be a little outlet for myself, post once in awhile for friends & family became something much bigger, a love affair actually. The community I am in, the people I know and feel like I know in person { hi blends! ❤ } my creativity, baking & food palette have immensely grown and the fact that I can come here to share, spill and connect has been amazing. I can’t wait to see what happens with POC for the next year 🙂
Thanks for making this piece of my internet feel like home!

Some other marvels: 

Friday night we attended a going away party for two of our friends, they are heading to the South.. I’m sure it’s really bittersweet for them- but I think they already have wait list for visitors! & no matter where they are, Crol can still read piece of cait 😉 ( Hi Carol! )
Photo: Yesterday was my last day of work and it was very emotional saying bye to all my work friends...but it was so nice being out with good friends later on!
Saturday was gorgeous out, too bad it only lasted one day. A walk in the park, trip to trader joes & fresh flowers.
Gifts from friends, ah I love my yogi tea!
Face masking + Netflix. Because, you just need to sometimes.
Since cass was sick last week and missed Florida- a belated birthday dinner on Sunday at Fire Birds.
{soup & salad deal}
Followed by, froyo : )

These past few days have been semi busy, yet very well needed! It feels good to scratch things off your to do list.
Since Wednesday is the middle of the week, I thought I’d share what’s been happening around these parts these past few days!

I love the raw cookie dough. Mmm semolina 😉
Perfect afternoon treat.

On Monday night, George and I went to see The Great Gatsby
I really didn’t know the story line to be honest but I knew the time
period and love that period. The director did a great job & I loved the hip hop soundtrack!

You can listen to the full album here.

On Monday I said I wanted to start a herb garden.
This morning George & I were up and planting by 930 : )
What a great way to start a summer morning!

{I chose: cinnamon basil, flat parsley, jalapeño peppers & cherry tomatoes}

^starting small^
We hope to add a few more things soon.

Just got back from errands with my sista {and inhaled this salad^}
we went all over the place!
{home goods/Marshalls/ Ross/ coffee}
We had to stop because we both felt famished!
but I did buy a cute new dress 😉
{Salad-Spinach, cherry tomatoes ,olives, feta, carrots, pita chips, orange chicken}

I’m off to maybe do a small cat nap, & maybe lace up my sneakers and take a run around the
neighborhood since its national running day! : )
then meeting up with a girlfriend when she done work tonight.

enjoy your evening

Friday Favs 4/26

Did this week fly by or what…
Currently at the coffee house starting my final portfolio for the semester which is due NEXT Friday, wee!
So I wanted to get a head start before I embark a long weekend of work.

This week I didn’t have my computer for a few days,
so here are some highlights- aka Friday favs 🙂

I got a little heavy handed as my sister would say.

Pistachios + dark choc goji berries.
