ten little hunt things.

Friday, January 20, 2012

numero uno.
in keeping with my super-crunchy ways this week, i made my own almond milk.  it was sooooo easy and way cheaper than buying it.  take that, store-bought almond milk!  here are the deets: take a cup of raw almonds.  soak them for 24 hours (the water just covering the almonds).  they plump up and the next day dump the water, put the almonds in your blender with five cups of filtered water.  blend!  then pour through a coffee filter to get all the almond meal leaving you with... almond milk!  add vanilla or a sweetener if you'd like?  


question: what do you guys do with your leftover almond meal?  i don't see myself doing the dehydrating-to-get-flour thing.

numero dos.
my sweet friend candis started an etsy shop with her husband drew jones.  his name is drew, but we all call him by his full name, drew jones.  anyway, the two of them have skillz in the art-department and are making prints of some special quotes from friends' blog posts... mine included.  i think it's really special and here's mine.  that quote means a heckuva lot to me so seeing it in print like that melts my little heart.  also, i already own one of those cool necklaces they're making--stay tuned cause it'll be showing up around these parts!  also, they're good people.  so, shop small business and shop good people, duh!
numero tres.
i have wanted the LBD (little black dress, ya'll!) from emerson made for like ever.  it's perhaps the most perfect black dress of all time (oh, and the jeans, and the bag 'o leggings...).  the price tag is a little less perfect but still, it's on my list.  i spotted this one on modcloth and thought it looked quite a bit like my fave one.  that sexy neckline!  a little cleav!  the skinny belt!  it gets me every time.
numero cuatro.
with a bit of prompting, lindsey started this project with that book whose praises i keep singing.  she wanted to make herself a farm (on poster board) using details she found in the book.  it was a cute project and kept her busy for many hours.  that's the ticket!  here she is doing her thang, and here's a page of the book--those details!  every page, people!  every page is full of them!

numero cinco.
i'm ready for summer.  but not for parker to be approaching his first birthday.  any way we could get the summer weather minus the him-growing-up-thing?

numero seis.
i'm open to another vlog.  what?!  did i just say that out loud?  and now that i broke the vlog-ice, it won't take me three months to do it (you're skeptical.  you have every right to be.).  what should i do this one on?

numero siete.
in keeping with my 'i'm going to read the classics in 2012' i'm working my way through pride and prejudice happily. and loving it, people!  the key is bringing the book with me to nurse and not the iphone.  anyway, i imagine jane austen giggling to herself as she writes some of the dialogue in it--particularly mrs. bennet's.  such moxie, that jane austen!  i love it!  and mr. bennet might be my favorite.  the way he gets mrs. bennet all hot and bothered just for the fun of it.  he's a clever one, that mr. bennet.

numero ocho.
boston's had some killer weather lately.  a few weeks ago it was 60!  60, folks!  in january!  in boston!  we walked around the city (mostly beacon hill) all day and ate at the paramount.  it was the best day.  and today we had our first (maybe second, but the first was only 1 inch and melted in a few hours) snow.  our first!  towards the end of january!  i do love the snow, but once it's dirty and gross, i'm over it.  right now, it's looking quite beautiful out.  anyway, all that to say, boston's winter has been good to us this year.

numero nueve.
this is something i wonder from time to time, but haven't yet really asked.  readers: where do you live?  how old are you?  can i come visit?  the third was sort of a joke but not really.  if you tell me paris or spain, i'll be looking you up.  anyway, i often wonder where you guys are as you read my blog, but haven't asked.  so here it is.  where are you?

numero diez.
how about some songs we like up in heeeah lately?  music makes the day better, say i.  parker agrees!
i never tire of paul simon.  like never.  throw any one of his cds at me and i will declare it listen worthy!  the other day i had his new cd on and steve was all, "CAN WE LISTEN TO ANYTHING BESIDES JAMES TAYLOR AND PAUL SIMON IN THIS HOUSE?"  i yelled back, "kiss my a**!"  that being said, i loooove his newest cd.
and for you to have a taste of the greatness, click play!

bam!  ten things!  and i'm linking with my friend elizabeth today.  she needs no more introduction than that, i'm pretty sure you all know her!  and if you don't, you need to fool!

  2. maybe I am just confused...but where does the milk come in if you are soaking the almonds in water and filtering in a coffee pot with water?
    Also, I leave near Harrisburg, PA and I am 24. and have a guest room with your name written on it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Italy! North, in the Alps, close to the Swiss border. I'm 24. Come if you like!

  5. I'm reading from Conakry, Guinea. What's that? You've never heard of it? Don't worry, I'll wait while you look it up on a map (I know I had to when I first heard about this crazy place). You know you want to come visit.

    ReplyDelete
  6. @memeandhehe, gooood question. that i can't really sufficiently answer. i think a lot of the protein and goodness in the almond is still in the water even without the meal??

    @chiara, you win! i'll be right over!

    ReplyDelete
  7. re: the almond milk. yes! i haven't tried the pre-soak method, but that makes sense. i usually just blend the heckies out of it, and strain. what to do with the chaff? i stir it into oatmeal. however, no one will judge if you dump it. let me know how long the almond milk stays fresh (if you get that far). i found that the shelf life is short (and that keeping it in a smaller container helped fight off the spoilage). almonds, ftw!

    ReplyDelete
  8. And HOW did it feel???

    Was it a little like, "shit I'm wasting ten different blog posts all up in here?" because that's how I feel sometimes.

    But I loved it.

    Where to start?

    You already know my details. You would come visit, but I live in Alabama, so yeah.

    I'm gonna vote you do a vlog on that bachelor shit y'all keep tweeting about. I find the tweeting highly entertaining, even if I don't watch. So maybe do a highlight reel for those of us who are too highbrow (too dumb to figure out when it's on) to watch it.

    And lastly, that Lindsey! You are doing something so right with her and W, so right.

    ReplyDelete
  9. i started reading when i was just around the corner in beverly/marblehead. now i'm south of the city.. and 23. and ps. the modcloth dress is way too perfect. order before it's gone!

  10. Bonjour!
    I'm 25, born and raised in Paris, France.

    (I'm moving to Canada next week to be with my Canadian husband and my two stepkids but shhhh, Canada is way less cool than France, so I like to say I am & always will be a "parisienne").

    Bisous!

  19. That's it, you've encouraged me to pick up Pride and Prejudice. I've been wanting to read it for years but ever since my experience with it - and spark notes - in high school it just seemed too "hard' or something. Anyway, I'll let you know how it goes.

    I've been reading your blog for over a year now - crazy! But I live with my husband in South America - Chile to be exact! We are here for a few years working at a church, so if you ever need some Spanish speaking tour guides or a room, we are your people! :)

I love your blog; it's so real life!

    ReplyDelete
  23. 23. and I'm Boston too. and so, so so thankful for this winter. After last winter I actually cried back in October thinking about how bad it was going to be. Quite the opposite and I am happy!

    I only drink almond milk so I should definitely try to make my own at some point! honestly though.. I say that but I'm way too lazy to actually ever do it ;)

    ReplyDelete

    Love the blogger prints... so precious, every single one of them.
    Happy Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Never commented. I'm 35 (I think). I got my haircut yesterday and my hairdresser is my age but looks ten years younger than me....so maybe I'm 45. Dang. This has been bugging me all night.

    From Utah - yet another Mormon in blog land. So weird.

    I loved your first vlog. You've got charm. Do it again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm 24 and live in Ontario. I'm also loving the winter we are having. I have years left of terrible winters so a mild one every now and then is fine by me!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yay for another Vlog!

    I'm 25 and live in... wait for it... Sioux Falls, South Dakota... which is pretty much boring. BUT I am from Green Bay, WI which is way better and very pretty :)

  28. I'm 26, my husband and I live in Washington DC (about 1.5 miles from the Capitol Building), and you should visit (if you don't mind tiny apartments and dogs who like to sleep on top of you).

    ReplyDelete
  29. I live in Boston. I am a new-ish reader, and didn't realize you lived in MA! :) I commented on your instagram recently that I have a 5 month old named Parker too :) double whammy! P.s I am with you on the summer thing. No more snow!

    ReplyDelete
  30. have thought about trying my own almond milk but where would i get raw, unpasturized almonds in ND.

    am totally up for another vlog. whatever you do. i'll watch it.

    have pretty much been obsessed with James Taylor since high school. even had 'something in the way she moves' as our first dance at our wedding. and saw him in concert in 2003.

    and lastly and certainly the least important, i live in North Dakota somewhere up near Canadia. it's like 30 below zero here right now so i would definitely not recommend a visit. in fact i am currently planning my escape. oh and i'm 30 years old, but really i'm 32.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Worcester, England! Whoop whoop. Originally from Minnesota, USA.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i love almond milk! so so yummy, although now i want to try to make it instead of buying it.

  39. I'm 32 (but so close to 33 that it is pinching me) and live just outside of Boston in Arlington. We actually just bought a house in Lexington and will be moving in March, so yay! I hear you about Boston weather...though since I am a transplant from Virginia I still enjoy the snow more than most of my friends here. Plus, I have a toddler who thinks that "snuh-ooooh" is magical so it is kind of charming to see it from his point of view.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  46. I will never get tired of James Taylor and Paul Simon. Kiss my ass, Steve! JK.

    You should come visit me in Pennsylvania. I will take you to get a chocolate bath in the famous chocolate spa in the middle of Hershey, the chocolate city (doesn't that sound gross?)

    Or maybe let's just go to Paris.

    I can't remember how old I am. I think 26? 1985.

  49. I'm 30 and from Bellingham, Washington. I fell in love with Boston when my brother was attending grad school there, so I love reading your tidbits about it.

    Oh, and I LOVE that you are reading Pride & Prejudice right now. It took me forever to get around to actually reading that one (like after reading Sense & Sensibility multiple times) and when I finally did I was kicking myself for not reading it earlier. Glad you're enjoying it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Since you asked so nicely! I'm 21 and living in Dessau, Germany. But I'm a long time reader and have been reading since I was living in California (soon to be back! Miss you USA!)..

  51. Is it just me or is Bridget getting a bit more gangsta' in her writing? It must feel good to be a gangsta', right?

    Also, the almond milk thing interests me. Do you think it works out as cheaper?

    Finally, despite my blogger name and photo, I am actually a 72 year old man named Harold, living in rural Kansas. You should totally come and visit me. It would be fun/awkward.

  59. Hey Miss Bridget-
    Been reading your blog for a loong time. My sister went to college with you and told me about your love story which I ended up falling in love with. (your story that is, not you, but your pretty cool too). I'm 26 in Austin Texas (which is a definte must come see, great great city) married to a pretty rad dude and have a sweet Gracie as well! Thanks for your genuine posts and always throwing in the humor

  61. I'm 21 and I spend some of my time living in London and the rest of my time living in Cornwall (the sticky-outy bit in the far south west of England). Everyone knows that London is a cool place to live but Cornwall is just as cool for different reasons, it's the land where you're never more than an hour away from a beautiful beach and wherever you go there's always amazing food to be had. If you ever fancy a visit across the pond I'd be more than happy to show you around :)

  62. 23 on Monday, gah. Living south of Boston. The snow is exciting for me this year because we have a house now, but I will be over it in like two minutes.

  68. Hi Bridget,

    I'm that creepy girl who had a dream over the summer that Steve was a total jerk (and then actually had the balls (or insanity) to email you about it). Anywho, still happily reading over here in sunny San Diego. I'd trade Boston for SD any day, en serio.

    Happy Weekend!

  70. 60 degrees in January? Crazy! We are in a winter wonderland / major winter storm here in over here in the northwest (central Cascade Mtns). I'm 15 miles out of Leavenworth, WA, AKA "Christmastown USA" or the "Bavarian Village". Come anytime y'all like and we'll take you rock climbing, hiking, and whitewater rafting, or skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding depending on the season.

    My question to you -- what is the almond milk for? Does someone have a dairy allergy? Do you just like it more? So curious! You are hardcore healthy to make your own :)

  71. 27, and live in the OC! But not the TV show version, just the normal laid back version. :) Come on out! Lets go to Disneyland!

  81. Please do more of these posts. They're great.

    Home is Gig Harbor, Washington. 50 minute drive to Seattle, and two hours to Forks and the most gorgeous rocky beaches. You know those postcards of harbors with light houses and sailboats? Yeah, that's Gig Harbor. Oh, and it's like a four hour drive to Vancouver BC. You need to make a trip out there. Have to.

  83. I really have enjoyed reading your blog the last few months. I've been lurking in the corner, worried to comment. I like to think I'm living vicariously through others, while I live the single life.

    I live in Montana. You really should come visit. Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks are close and absolutely spectacular.

  88. I really want to try to make almond mil now! I'm also curious what people do with the leftover almond stuff!

    Just wanted to say you've done an awesome job of creating a little blog community here, I just scrolled down through the comments and it was fun to see how many people from all over the world have commented (and would have you over for a visit!).

    Me and my hubby live in Niagara Falls on the Canadian side, I'm 29 and yes come visit if you haven't already been to the Falls - they really are beautiful! I work at Starbucks, so make sure to stop by for a latte if you ever make it here. :) (Although hopefully I won't be at Starbucks much longer.)

  125. I love those black dresses too, they are amazing! I also like the thought of Jane Austen giggling to herself while she was writing, heheh. :)

    As for me, I'm Holly, I'm 24 and I'm from Christchurch, New Zealand. I strongly suggest you DON'T come and visit here unless you love earthquakes! I wish I was kidding. :S Although, that is just Christchurch, other parts of New Zealand are perfectly safe. :)

  130. first of all, you're hilarious. in the written word anyway.
    second of all, if you like PaulSimon( and I loooove him) check out the Decemberists or Local Natives).
    thirdly ( is thirdly a word?) I'm trying to revisit the classics too- reading Jane Eyre for the first time and loving it. I think high school english really messes people up as far as classic lit goes. I put Pride and Pred on my list for the next one.

  137. 24 from Connecticut! I went to the same college as you and had always heard about "your story"! Have to admit I was skeptical when I was a young freshman, but I found your blog this past summer via a college friend. I read your love story and love it!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Random idea that just popped in my head, could you add the wet almond meal to muffins? It seems like it could work, or maybe even oatmeal?

    And as for the vlog, you must do another! Maybe this time Parker can make a cameo?

    I am in Denver and actually enjoy snow :) but it does tend to melt quickly here.

    ReplyDelete
  139. You already know how much I love the farm book. :) And the nice weather, we had it in the beginning of January too. What a dream! But now, the reality. Brrrr. I always love your blog and looking forward to your next vlog.(I'm a 35 year old 6th grade Science teacher in Des Moines, Iowa)

  141. 1. i can't believe you make your own almond milk! i didn't even know that was possible. less than a year ago i couldn't boil a pot of water though.
    2. i love the print. so cute and so special.
    3. beacon hill...very pretty! i was there 2 years ago for a conference. boston is amazing.
    which leads me to 4:

    currently reading from Lund, Sweden.

  171. You blew my mind with the homemade almond milk. Seriously?! Amazing. I'm so doing it.
    And btw, I live in Vancouver BC. (And yes, I know it's on your list of places to see!) More specifically, 30 minutes outside the city in the best little beach town called White Rock. Come visit! It's the greatest city, I promise. ;)

  172. Yeah I like to creep on here from time to time. From Texas but living in Northern Alberta with my husband and two babies and i JUST turned 26 but wish I was still 25 cause after 25 it's just all down hill;). Homemade almond milk is amazing! My manly man husband and I are turning into raw foodie hippie freaks, he's the master almond milk maker in our hizzouse;)

  180. I am a 26 year old who just graudated with a BA in history and I live in Eugene, Oregon.

    Eugene is awesome becuase:

    Nature is everywhere! We live in the beautiful Willamette Valley, I live across the street from a hidden park. A 10 minute walk away from a larger, more seculded park. A 10 minute bike ride from the Willamtte River.

    You can walk, ride a bike, or take the bus pretty much everywhere in our town.

    The campus for The University of Oregon is beautiful! But I may be biased. Also, we're kinda good at football.

    We have the super awesome hippie festival called Oregon Country Fair every July. I always dress up like a fairy. Wings and all.

    Organic, vegan, and gluten free food are easily found in just about every restaurant and grocery store.

    Like our big sister city to the North we have tons of coffee and beers that are made locally.

    If this town sounds like fun to your you're more than welcome to visit! Just bring a rain jacket!

    ReplyDelete
  181. I love that dress! So cute.

    You should definitely do another vlog, although I don't have any ideas for what to do it on at this time.

    I'm Annie, 21, in west Michigan. I generally read blogs wrapped up in a blanket, sitting on my couch, about a week after they're posted. I don't know if you wanted that much detail about where I am when I read your blog, but I'm a writer and we tend to embellish past the point of most people's tolerance.
