Life Lately

Hi guys! I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend. Mine has been pretty relaxing. I have been having way too much fun with instagram lately so I thought I would share what I have been up to.

Untitled

1 - 2. I have been getting my gardening on! Monday night I set up my garden plot with beets, peas, green beans, green and yellow squash, two types of basil, and some flowers. The roses surrounding my house are also in bloom at the moment - the orange roses are my personal faves.

3 - 4. Friday my dad and I drove on over to Arlington Heights to try out the vegetarian food at Chowpatti. All I have to say is YUM!!! I chose to get a veggie burger and fries. I really liked this veggie burger because it was all vegetable and no soy or tempeh.

5 - 6. My little lovies! I found the toad in my garden this morning hanging out in the shade. The cutie on the chair is my one and only sweetpea. Isn't she just the cutest little thing?

I also went to a fundraiser yesterday to help raise money for a family friends relay for life fund. Today I am working on unpacking, cleaning, and fixing up my bike so I can start my new workout routine - can't wait to get that started. The weather has been beautiful and life is good. I am also happy to announce that this week I will be hosting a fantabulous giveaway - I honestly wish I could win it myself, so please be on the lookout!

Have a wonderful day everyone :]

    1. I completely agree with you on the roses :] My workout routine is basically me biking a few miles each morning and lifting some free weights. Not super intense, but it keeps me moving.

  10. looks like a lovely weekend, allison! :)

    so envious that you can do some gardening there! i live in a high-rise building and sadly don't have a balcony so gardening seems a bit impossible. I'd really love to be surrounded by some greens. planning to have small potted plants instead to liven up the apartment. :)

    1. It really was!

      That stinks. At least you probably have quite a view. Potted plants will definitely liven things up a bit :]

  14. Gardening? I am so jealous. I dream of having my own little strawberry patch one day! I can't wait until we are in a more permanent place so we can do a little gardening. :)

    1. Aw! A strawberry patch would be so fun. I hope you get one once you find a more permanent place :]

  15. Aww sweetpea is so cute! Good luck with gardening! I wish I were better at tending to plants and vegetables. I managed to kill a plant the florist said was 'very resilient' xo

  16. ~I love being able to keep in touch with you through IG, since I like to disappear from the blog world at least once a month. ;)
    ~it's really a challenge for me to find a veggie burger that I actually like. You'd think they'd all be really yummy but sadly that's SO not the case. I've had some disgusting veggie burgers in my time, and you know I'm not a vegetarian. Often times, however, I do find myself in a meatless mood and order one of these. I've had some just plain crumble into peas onto my plate. I'm like, "WTF!?!" LOL, but you made this one sound and look amazing.
    ~Random, but what app or site do you use to make these collages?

    1. I am so glad to have IG. It is a great way to keep in touch! Haha. I missed ya lady!

      Haha, I totally agree with you. I had an awful one a few weeks back. I need to learn to make my own.

      I made the collage myself in photoshop. Sorry. I can't be more help in the app department. I think you may be able to make one in Picasa? That program seems to be used by a lot of bloggers.

  17. That frog is disgusting but those waffle fries are awesome.
