iPhone Cracks and Goat Cheese Crumbles

Well hello there. It has been awhile.



Do you wanna see something that stinks?
Crack! But I was fine with it especially because it still worked great and I got a cool arm band for running and biking.


Key word above- worked.

This is what happens when you drop the iPhone on tile for a second time. Looks like a spider web, right? Creepy...and...sad. Picked up a new one tonight...and definitely plan to add that "pointless" insurance this time.


I have been celebrating a few special people's birthdays in early August.

Happy Birthday MOM and JENNA!

My house is overflowing with fresh C.S.A. (Community Supported Agriculture) produce.

Corn-on-the-cob in a plastic bag. (gasp) Shame on me, right? But, I promise the bag was recycled as an Oscar-poo-picker-upper.
Bright red peppers.

I FINALLY planted some fresh herbs after planning to do this for 3 years. What have I been waiting for?

I guess I was waiting to meet the "HerbMan" that was sitting outside David's Natural Market selling herbs. :)


Bruschetta, anyone? This was made with the gorgeous C.S.A. tomatoes, basil from my backyard (!!!), Toasted Asiago Bread from Panera, drizzle of EVOO, drizzle of Balsalmic, and goat cheese crumbles.

Yes, I just said Goat. Cheese. Crumbles. Search for them in your grocery store if you didn't know about them before this post because they rock. No more messy goat cheese wrappers.

In terms of Workouts - I have gotten back in the swing of things and am currently in FULL half marathon training. Baltimore Half Marathon is October 10th!

  • The last two saturdays I have run 8.5 miles. The most recent run was MUCH more comfortable than the first. Improvement is key. (Cant help but think about last year at this time - I was training for a marathon and 8.5 miles was nothing in August.)
  • Biked 30 miles this past Sunday. On my heavy mountain bike with huge tires. On a paved path. I tried to stay positive and think about what a great workout I was getting. As all the people on road bikes whizzed by me like I was standing still.
  • Swam 30 mins last night. For the first time in months. Felt dizzy afterwards.
  • Took today OFF from workouts and plan on a run and Jillian Michaels No Trouble Zones tomorrow.

Off to bed.

Oh no, I'd be completely lost if that happened to my iphone!!
The eggplant looks amazing, and your herb garden is so cute too!

Big bummer on the iPhone!
I love having fresh herbs around--I think my cooking has improved tenfold as a result of planting my own herbs!

Oh no! Sorry to hear about your iphone.
The herb garden looks great so far! I tried one of those last summer. I think I got two basil leaves off it and then it became an herb graveyard. :(

Sorry about your phone! I love fresh herbs! I really wanted to plant some this year and never got around to it. I need to find those goat cheese crumbles! I always make a mess trying to crumble it myself!

Oh no, so sorry about the i-phone!

The veggies look so fresh. You have inspired me to start planting my own herb garden. Now, if only I didn't have a black thumb!

So sorry about the iPhone. I'd freak. I know that you can find people who can repair iPhones much cheaper than apple. Maybe someone can replace the screen.

Hey! What can of case/armband do you use while running? I'm looking for one but every review I see is bad bad bad. I have an ipod classic 80g.
