Random Acts of the Month: July 2015

July was pretty awesome. There was some big news, some summer weather, some good food, and some other stuff. 

For the 4th of July we took the pooch out to Magnuson Park where the dog park has some water. Asha was uncertain at first, but ended up chasing another dog and found herself in the water. Once she was wet, she was loving it! 

We enjoyed some tasty food. On the left, we enjoyed some fish & chips at Chippy's. Then we battled the crowds to get some Chick-Fil-A - yes, I mean crowds and the drive through is out of the lot! And I had a prego hankering for dumplings so we headed to Din Tai Fung. Ah so good. 

We grew stuff! We were pretty proud of our produce. I'm calling us Farmer Browns

Of course lots of time was spent with little Miss Asha. Oh, and she graduated from puppy kindergarden. We're proud puppy parents.

We had some pretty big news. Take a guess - here's two hints: (1) bun in the oven and (2) Bump!

Find out how I'm doing with my Q&A post, too! 

There was some random fun, too. I took a calligraphy class, we went down to Georgetown (South Seattle) for lunch, and we saw lots of people picking the wild blackberries. Would you pick and eat blackberries from the side of the road?

As always, I spent time in the kitchen (only on the days that were not crazy high temps - which weren't many).

Those pancakes are my favorite - Oatmeal Buttermilk - they remind me of the pancake I enjoyed at Alana's Cafe in the Bay Area. Here's the recipe!

Oh July, you were good. Can't believe we're already in August! This year is flying by!!!!
