I’ve had migraines since Sunday night, ebbing and flowing. I’m in the middle of an ebb right now. My Valentine’s Day plans aren’t going as planned, but we’re pretty low key about V Day anyway. We never go out, and we typically let it pass with mild fanfare. Cards, maybe candy, a good dinner at home. Not so much today. But I did manage yesterday, before a migraine set in and lasted through the night, to make these s’mores bites with Hannah to celebrate the day.

My virtual book club just started its third year, and last week I mailed out the prizes to the big winners from 2016. We don’t read a set book each month, we just read whatever we want and talk about it. The past 2 years I gave out prizes for the most books read, the most pages read, and the most audiobook time listened. This year we’ve moved over to Goodreads, and we’re just straight tracking the number of books read. So, next January I’ll announce a first, second, and third place winner.

I’ve been on a break from blogging for a couple of weeks while I got ready for the holidays. And they’ve arrived! They came, they saw, they spread festive cheer all over the house! My in-laws just left this morning, and I’m looking around the house figuring out where we’re going to put everything.

Happy Star Wars Day! We celebrated by going into downtown Red Bank and picking up a box full of Star Wars cake pops from Lil’ Cutie Pops. We love that shop, they make the most adorable goodies.

The pizza class I took last summer is finally paying off! I got a bunch of great pizza supplies for Christmas, and Adam and I are putting them to good use. My dough is so much better (I used to just buy it from Whole Foods), I love the sauce. The key is setting the oven as high as it will go and putting the pizza stone (in our case a pizza steel) in the oven for an hour to heat up. Then we cook the pizzas right on the steel.

I loved last weekend. I only left the house to go get some lunch with Adam and Hannah on Saturday. The rest of the weekend was spent inside being a glorious homebody.

I go a little overboard sometimes with the adventures. I love trying new things, and since Hannah’s arrival that desire has kicked into overdrive. Which is how the two of us ended up raspberry picking a week ago.

The Berry Farm in Colts Neck (right behind Delicious Orchards) has black raspberries in season now. Last Wednesday we had a late start because we finally got an attic fan installed! It’s made a huge difference to the upstairs air conditioning, I highly recommend it. Anyway, the farm isn’t open every day. It closes for a couple of days at a time to allow the berries to ripen, and you really have to get there first thing in the morning on picking day to get anything. But, of course, I didn’t know this so Hannah and I rolled up around 3pm bright-eyed and ready for adventure. The owner looked like he just wanted to pat me on the head, and then he handed me a tiny Chinese takeout container and told me to go pick $4 worth of raspberries to make something for dessert tonight.

On Saturday Adam and I went to Philly for a little anniversary celebrating. We had dinner at home on Thursday night, so Saturday was our first chance at a day out. We went to IKEA and got 2 of these loungers, which I love. The boxes were huge, and Adam had to ride home in the seat behind mine. We had cheesesteaks. And I went to Spool to meet Eleanor Grosch. Adam met her, too.

We got a firepit and spent Sunday night sitting on the patio making s’mores. I love this firepit.

And s’mores. I also love s’mores.
