I had previously mentioned how posting would be a bit sporadic for me due to family reasons, but luckily for me I have some incredible blogging friends who have graciously offered to keep you guys entertained with some posts here and there until I can return to my regular schedule. First up, is the lovely Luci of Luci’s Morsels, playing “guest bartender” for this week’s ‘Happy Hour’.
Hi Runway Chef readers! I’m so excited to be sharing some of my favorite things here for Alyssa. My life has been pretty crazy recently. After five years in grad school, I submitted my dissertation two weeks ago and signed paperwork to get my PhD in history last week. We’ve been super happy and celebrating, spending lots of time with family and friends. It has been very busy. As I sink back into my work routine, I’m enjoying some new things in my life as well as the old, familiar favorites in my life. It still hasn’t kicked in that I’m done with grad school and I keep looking at people funny who refer to me as Dr. (definitely not going to be the norm in my life). I’m in shock that it’s over, but trying to get back into a routine.
BREAD: I made this coconut banana bread a few weeks ago (recipe here). I munched down the first loaf and have now munched through the second loaf that I’d put in the freezer!
VANITY: I found this tray for $2 at a thrift store and love it on our dresser for lotion, perfume, and my watches.
WHITE DRESS: My boyfriend took this picture of me just after I signed my PhD paperwork and it just captures me so well. It makes me so happy.
WEDGES: These babies are a new addition to my closet. I love LOVE love wedges, but these are so unique, I can’t stop wearing them.
BAG: This is a handmade gift from a childhood mentor for my graduation. It means so much to me on so many levels and ups the coolness factor of our place by so much!
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did (is anyone else majorly coveting those Target vases like me?!)! Stay tuned for another guest post coming up from Luci and make sure you’re following her on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
