Après Hour

photo-567Good Morning! Happy almost weekend! I brought you some flowers this week, don’t you just love them? They’re ranunculus and they make my house feel like spring! Everyone around the country has their bunny ears all up in a bunch about it snowing in April. Guess what, here in Utah we ski at Snowbird until July! I did see this hilarious photo however and it made me chuckle…10259905_10151893133425834_4068822561324326923_n ✓ These baked eggs with spinach and mushrooms looks like the perfect weekend brunch item!

Après Hour

photo-555Happy Friday, happy Après Hour! Spring has sprung here in Park City, for real this time, look at the pretty flowers I found on a hike this week. I’m sorry if you missed après hour last week, it was a crazy week and I just didn’t have time! I was too busy tending to my newly potted plants and celebrating my birthday. Check out the cactus and succulents I planted a few weeks ago!

It’s been two whole weeks and they are still all alive- when I read online that they only have to be watered once every one to two weeks I was sold! It even said “when in doubt, don’t water them!” So I figure I’ve got that going for me. This is what my basil plant looked like last year…photo-7Yep, its dead. Totally dead. I should have notice the directions on this one said, when in doubt ALWAYS water. I didn’t get to use fresh basil in ONE recipe before I killed this sucker! Anyways, I’m hoping for better luck this year.

Après Hour

photo-537Howdy y’all, its that time of the week again… Après Hour! Last weekend we went to Jackson Hole to ski and look what I found! A lift named after this post… nope I just lied. The lift is named Apres Vous and I poorly photo shopped “hour” over “vous” but it was worth a shot! Jackson Hole was gorgeous! The town is so much fun and the Teton mountains are so breath taking! 1149693_703424888867_708010728_o✓ See what I mean, Teton National Park is pretty awesome.

Après Hour

photo-536✓ I might have an obsession with taking photos of sunsets. I just love them!

Happy Friday and Happy Après Hour! It’s been another long week, although not any longer than any other week you’ve had your whole life, so lets move on. Yesterday was officially the first day of spring but winter is not ready to back down! It was cold all week but thankfully it was sunny too! I did get to relax in the sun on a “Ski Beach” (that’s just a fancy name for lounge chairs in the snow!) photo-174Yup that’s me kicking up my feet! Time for you to kick up your feet and enjoy some of my favorites from around the internet this week! Here’s to the weekend, Cheers!

✓ Keep it LOCAL. Looking for a way to eat sustainable, fresh and local produce this summer? Join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) A CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers (Farmers) and consumers (you). Members or “shareholders” pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, members receive a portion of the farm’s produce each week throughout the growing season. I love knowing where my food is coming from, don’t you?! Search for one in Utah or near you.
