ten things.

happy monday! the lovely joelle from where we love is home tagged me in a post last week. now it's my turn to break down my ten favorite things... all of which somehow made an appearance in my busy weekend :) 


1, 47, 8, 9

1. sandwiches. i know you've heard it before but i am still obsessed. burgers, caprese, blt's, bring them on. {we went to the lockdown for our anniversary and i got the bbq bacon burger on a pretzel bun!} 
2. a good song. music has the ability to make me happy. {h bought me the kooks and regina spektor on vinyl! what a peach.}
3. travel planning. h and i are a little obsessed with mapping out future travel plans. {spain in september. pondering turkey, paris, amsterdam, and italy.}
4. type and design. i looove the endless possibilities of what you can create with a little creativity and a great font. {i finished my first blog redesign this weekend!!}
5. reality tv. specifically real housewives on bravo. i am a little ashamed of this one. i tried to stop. but i just can't quit my watching my favorite divas in orange county, new york and atlanta. {i broke down and watched the season premiere of new jersey on sunday. fail.}
6. italian lemon ice. pretty much anything sweet for that matter. i don't discriminate... bring on the chocolate, sprinkles, and butter. {hello, ice cream bars i've missed you!}
7. i like to move it, move it. pilates, yoga, free weights, walking...i like to move it move it at least a few times a week. {i'm all about the kettlebell lately}
8. summertime when the weather is fine. i love a lot of things about the summer- lots of sunshine, festivals, farmers markets, rooftop pools, cookouts...birthdays! {we walked to the bar on saturday, and home from dinner on sunday night. it was fantastic.}
9. apple mac book pro. it's where allll the magic happens and what i look at for the majority of the day. {the mac has a new home! we finally bought a proper desk!}
10. my fiance. he's a keeper.

what make's your top ten list? 

xoxo, 
jillian

  39. for some reason, i enjoy real housewives of OC. it's pretty pathetic, since all it is is drama, but i just love drama (when it's not mine) sometimes :-)
