I am loving being home but I will have to admit there are a few things I miss about Chi-town (aside from my friends!).


(1) Intelligentsia Coffee
(2) Baseball
(3) Good Concerts

I hope to visit again soon!!

Update on my Aerogarden!

Here is my garden at 2 weeks + 1 day. Aside from the cilantro, the herbs are growing nicely. The BF did some research and found out that the water pump may be causing the cilantro not to grow. So I'm going to call Aerogarden to see about getting a replacement or something. Otherwise, look how cool this is!!

One of the coolest presents I've ever gotten...

My BF is a really good gift giver. He always manages to think of something that I would love without having asked him to get me. My birthday is on Monday and he went ahead and gave me my present now since we are celebrating tonight with our families.

So I love to cook and love using really good quality ingredients, including fresh herbs. However we are limited on space here plus we don't have a yard, so having my own herb garden is challenging. Lo and behold, I get this for my bday:

It is an Aerogarden and will allow me to grow my own organic herbs in my own kitchen! It is like a super fancy science experiment. Or like my own mini version of The Living with the Land exhibit at EPCOT. In a few weeks, I will have my own mint, italian basil, cilantro, parsley, purple basil, and chives!! I'll be sure to post pics when it starts to grow. THe pic above is what it should look like when fully grown.
