As is evidence in the lack of recent posts, the last few weeks have been utterly hectic - a cold that finally reared it's ugly head after weeks of vitamin-C-binges, late calls and a rotating (somewhat unpredictable) social calendar  - exhaustion had set in.  But at last, I'm blissfully back to writing, and here are the 5 things that I'm obsessed with this week.  

- Ever since reading about it in the NY Post, I've been utterly captivated, and I am itching to get my hands on a copy of this book.

- My love for picnics is well documented (here) and this article sums up its appeal perfectly!

- Watermelon has already become our desert of choice.  Apparently we're not the only ones.

- While I love to cook, on especially warm evenings, it's nice to have a no-oven-necessary meal.  These wraps look incredible!

- Maybe it was the Vogue cover or maybe the idea of a period film, but this movie looks so sweet.

Happy Weekend!

Spring Showers

Every once in a while I love a nice rainy day.  It forces you inside and under the covers and is the perfect excuse get cozy and lazy.  Today's soft drizzle is effectively removing the last bits of snow and has me dreaming of spring.  Each season Mr. C and I create a list of sights we'd like to see, date spots we'd like to try, and things we'd like to do.  Here are just a few things that I'm looking forward to once spring officially gets going:

- Picnics.  I'm slightly obsessed with picnics, and this past Christmas I got the best picnic basket ever!  (Similar one here)  I'm so excited to head to Central Park or upstate with this beauty in tote.

- Baking inspiration.  I'm always on the hunt for a new recipe, and I try to create a few "Food Goals" for things I might be intimidated to try.  Currently topping the list - croissants,  these biscuits, and soft pretzels.  Bring on the gluten!

- Tennis - I haven't played, or even attempted to play, in years, but I'd love to pick up a racket again.  

-Polo Match - I've been dying to go to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic forever.  Hopefully we can get tickets this year.  I have my hat all ready to go.

-Spring Sites - Living in an apartment, I'm a bit starved for flowers.  I'd love to get my floral fix at The Orchid Show

What's on your Spring to-do list?
