i was feeling very domestic this weekend.  there is something i love about making and building – and just doing – things.  i guess it stems from staring at a computer screen all week.  i was very pleased with myself this past weekend with everything i got done.

first I bought and planted this lilac bush by the pool.  i love it.  i hope it doesn’t die.

then i made the pioneer woman’s black bean recipe.  just a sidenote on that… probably didn’t need to make the whole recipe.  she cooks for a family of 6 and i cook for 2.  these took 2.5 hours to make and I have, like MILLIONS, of beans.  if you’re reading this and live in dallas and want some good beans, call me.

for dinner, Sunday night, we had grilled shrimp scampi, a bobby flay recipe.

lastly, i made one of my favorite blogger’s recipes for blueberry popsicles.  they were SO GOOD.  Blueberries, milk, basil, honey – YUM.

i hate to say that i remembered to take a picture of mine too late – already ate half of it so check out her blog.  i guess i have some work to do before i’m a professional blogger!
