our exciting life...

new bread box



Jon and I have been going back and forth about purchasing a breadbox (I know, the exciting things we discuss...). Shinji likes to jump up on top of the fridge and chew through our plastic bread bags, so we normally have to put our bread in the fridge (ew) or in the cupboard. When I saw this breadbox at Target last week I *almost* bought it, and once Jon and I went back to the store together, he totally wanted it, too, so we picked it up.



new bread for box





In honor of our new bread box and lack of bread in the house, Jon made these two really cute loaves of Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day bread. It was such a nice treat to come home freshly baked bread after spending the day working at my internship.



our first takeout vegan pizza



In other carb-loaded news, we found a local pizzeria that makes three different types of vegan pizza. Since switching our diet, I've really been missing the ability to order a takeout pizza (not the actual pizza itself...cheese and I are not good friends), but just the idea of calling up a restaurant and ordering a takeout pizza. This pizza was so tasty. It was topped with pesto, walnuts, garlic, tomatoes, broccoli and red sauce and was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be ordering this again.





super mario fiending

One other item that magically appeared in our Target cart on Friday was the Super Mario game for the Wii. While I was diligently working all weekend, my sister and Jon played Mario for hours on end. They made it to the halfway point of the game this weekend and now their seat outlines are permanently imprinted on the couch. :)

  1. That is funny. My sister almost bought me that exact same breadbox... After she told me about it it was hard not to buy it myself! ;)

  2. i'm sort of surprised my butt isn't imprinted into our couch from Super Mario Bros Wii... it's imprinted because of other nonsense (TV shows)

  4. I've wanted a breadbox for the longest time but I have nowhere to put it. Plus I have no real need for one seeing as my cats are fat lumps who can't jump :) Still, I kinda want to go to Target now... Hee!
    That last pic is hilarious... my husband and I look like that except he's watching a movie and I'm binding / quilting a quilt hehe

  5. That bread looks delish! After finding out last night we have mice in the house I'm grateful for my two cats and our trusty breadbox. Hope you enjoy yours!

  6. Gotta love Target....They do come through with some really neat stuff. Maybe you need to get the Wii fit. Just a thought.

  7. I have the same bread box! I thought you snuck into our house and took a picture. I really deliberated between green and orange but ended up with the green.
    Mario Wii is totally evil and addictive.

    And that pizza sounds so yummy - just got that book out again - need to buy some yeast!

  11. Cute breadbox! I understand the carb-loving feline... Mine has an addiction to lightly salted potato chips, popcorn and french fries. It's so bizarre.

  15. I LOVE that breadbox!
    I just came across your blog from someone's Flickr. My name is Rebecca and whenever anyone asks me what they can call me I ALWAYS say "Rebecca, Beca, Becks, whatever, just don't call me Becky."

  17. I love the new breadbox! Probably because it's looks retro like you got it at a flea market.
    That pic is so funny of the 2 of them on that couch.

  18. Seat outlines - too funny! Me and Mario don't get along too well, unfortunately. I tried playing this with my family, and it didn't go so well. lol

  19. hilarous! what a great post. before i looked at the faces on the couch, it could have appeared that you were fighting..your own space and quilt with a definite space, but then you realize that it is not you! good thing your sister could keep him company, sort of!
