Five Things Friday

Left: My little balcony garden seems to be doing well. However, I managed to kill my indoor succulents. Maybe next time I should read up on how to care for succulents.

Right: Root veggies (many from our CSA box), garlic scapes (also from CSA box) and fresh herbs (from my balcony), wrapped in foil and grilled = yummmm.



How to fix wilted kale (also from my CSA box): Treat it like a flower. Trim the ends, put in water. And then put in the fridge.

This month’s team building activity: Laser Tag. Also, the digital marketing team has doubled in the past year. Keep surfing the web, y’all.



Mag Mile Runner shopping on the Mag Mile. I had a gift card.

When I named this blog, I had zero connection to the Magnficient Mile, it was just a good tie between my name and Chicago and running. OK, I take that back, my alma mater has a campus off the Mag Mile. But I never really shopped there. Two years ago I started working for a company with a presence on the Mag Mile, and it is in my own best interest to shop where I work, so I actually try to make an effort to shop there when I need to update my wardrobe. Thank goodness for 4th of July sales. I stretched that gift card pretty far.


We spent our 4th of July where we always do, in the great (ha) state of Indiana, where fireworks are legal and I can sit in my friend’s backyard and watch basically a 40-minute grand finale being set off in the parkway a block away.


Where do you shop?
What did you do for the 4th?
What are you growing in your garden?
Does your office do social activities?

  1. Oooh your garden is so impressive! What all are you growing? I only tried my hand at flowers this year, but those have been quite successful (so far *knocks on wood*), and next year I’d like to try growing things I can eat in addition to things that look pretty.
