Seasons Changing

Hello lovelies,

Much time has past since I last posted on here! Spring semester is just about over, and the long winter we've been having here in Virginia has finally decided to take a rest so that the sun can finally do its thang. Thankfully, I get to look forward soon to spending my summer days in the sun, camping, traveling and documenting more about my day to day delights!

I have been, as usual, behind on keeping up with my 30 lists, but hopefully when I am able to complete last month's challenge, I can share the entire thing on here with you all in one big photo! Until then, here are some spring snaps from this past week (with my iPhone 4s).

Now, on to summer. It's my second favorite season, next to fall, and it is literally right around the corner! There are so many fun events coming up that I am really looking forward to. To name a few, I will be:

  • Going camping in Shenandoah National Park (a yearly vacation that Scott and I love to take)
  • Flying to Minnesota to be a part of my cousin's wedding
  • Attending my little brother's college graduation
  • Visiting and supporting my town's farmer's market
  • Taking more advantage of the metro system to tour parts of northern Virginia
  • Moving to a new space with Scott
  • Summer thrifting
  • Visiting Ocean City for a weekend

Didn't I say I would only name a few? Haha! Now before I finish this little post update, I would like to share with you what I made for lunch today. Why? Because it was too darn easy and good to not share! Margherita pizza's are my all time favorite, and they make a great summer dish too. 

Classic Margherita Pizza
+ 1 Personal Pan Boboli's Pizza Crust
+ 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
+ 1/2 Cup (or less) of Organic Pizza Sauce
+ 4-5 leaves of freshly picked Basil (split)
+ 1 Tomato (thinly sliced)
+ 1/2 Cup (or less) Mozzarella Cheese
+ 1/2 Tsp McCormick's Italian Seasoning
+ 1/2 Tsp Crushed Red Pepper
+ Olive Oil

1. Turn stove on to 450 degrees. 
2. Simply begin to prepare all of the above ingredients and place on pizza crust as so: 
pizza sauce, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, mozzarella, split basil, 
tomatoes, crushed red pepper, a sprinkle of more mozzarella, and a drizzle of olive oil. 
3. Place on oven rack and bake for 8-10 minute. 
4. One done, let pizza cool to desired temperature, and voila! Enjoy!

What are some of your favorite summer dishes? Thank gosh for Pinterest, because I have a whole board of pins with some amazing recipes to try! 

Hope your wonderful selves have been enjoying the spring season so far!
