FEW THINGS IN LIFE ARE BETTER THAN BEING SURPRISED WITH PIE

January 30, 2013



I've been kinda sucking at posting lately. work has been crazy-town, but then I came home after a long day to this. this beautiful blackberry raspberry pie that my roommates made. so I ate it, and sang little love songs to it. and that was my wednesday.

HERE'S TO THE GIRL (BY JAX)

January 28, 2013

here's to the girl...
whose favorite store is the sweet factory
who goes to costco just to sample
who listens to vulgar rap music
who touches paintings at museums
who loves feeling insignificant under the stars

(when jax isn't graphic designing
 or painting me pictures of sandwiches, 
you can find her here.)

PUPPIES + PASTA + JAX = MAGIC

January 21, 2013

friday night I saw zero dark thirty at the kabuki,
and had delicious papardelle at emmy's spaghetti shack.
jax came to town! so naturally that meant margaritas at the latin american,
and brunch at the liberty cafe.
we came across my dream dog pairing : a frenchie and a pug.
one day, I will have one of each and you will be best friends. 
wandered around mission thrift stores, but with no luck
I discovered this little square of cement on my sidewalk.
happy monday.

HERE'S TO THE GIRL

January 16, 2013


who hits the snooze button 5 times
who goes to town on a hot dog with no shame
who gets busted for singing in the shower
who twirls her hair on a first date
who hails a taxi instead of taking the bus, just because she feels like it. 

PIKE'S MARKET IN SEATTLE

January 11, 2013

whenever I'm visiting my mom I make it a point to take the ferry into seattle and go to pike's market. sure, it's toursity - but it's such a classic seattle experience. and I'm a creature of habit.  also I like delicious things. SO SUE ME, ok?
  
things you will find at pike place market...
giant elephant-sized garlic
giant elephant-sized crab
the freshest coffee that believe it or not, is not starbucks
a man playing an old piano on a cobblestone street
ridiculous baked goods
amazing macaroni and cheese from beecher's 
(I could have eaten an elephant-sized portion)







FROM MY PHONE WITH ❤

January 7, 2013


1 lunch at the ferry building on a gorgeous january day
2 coffee at ritual with the girls
3 new year's eve meal at boxing room
4 talking a walk on bainbridge island
5 dill. sweet dill.
6 first bathroom selfie of 2013
7 saying goodbye to washington
8 my mama's house
9 megan on NYE being saucy as hell
10 me being excited about my rueben at broken record
11 view from my doorstep
12 old fashioned's at the latin american club 

fancy a follow? I'm @mollykpinto on instagram. 

CHRISTMAS IN THE EVERGREEN STATE

January 3, 2013



 



oh, washington. how did you know that I truly needed to sleep for 12 hours, wear my pajamas all week, watch trash TV with my sisters, and eat my weight in bourbon balls? WHO TOLD YOU. you know my soul. thanks for being so good. 

p.s. les miserables was amazing. really long. like, extremely long. but so magical. can't wait for a sing along version to come to the castro theatre...a girl can dream. sigh. 

2013: YEAR OF THE POACHED EGG + OTHER RESOLUTIONS I'LL PROBABLY FORGET ABOUT

January 1, 2013

me and Stoli, Megan's cat. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

ugh, the holidays are over. it makes me so sad to see all the trees kicked to the curb and all the twinkle lights taken down. why must that be a seasonal thing?? sparkle year round, I say. I spent my NYE at a 90's party. as you can see, I was not dressed 90's. I think this was the first theme party I attended and didn't dress for. one day into 2013 and I'm already rebelling. love it. 

in 2013 I will...
learn how to poach an egg
learn how to make hollandaise sauce
(essentially, I want eggs benedict without leaving my apartment)
walk more, cab / train / bus less
play more music
run a 5K
wear more spf
let my savings account grow for once
shop locally
send more snail mail

are you excited?!? deranged excited like I am in this photo?
what are you doing differently in 2013?
