rainy day

It started raining as I left work today, and it's been pouring down since. I don't mind rain at all, but it would have been nice if I could find my umbrella, or if I had proper foot wear. Wet shoes = wet toes. Yuck.
But with rain comes soup, I've been craving tomato soup for awhile, and I searched the internet high and low for a great recipe...only to find just that in one of the cookbooks on my shelf. Awesome! 
I made the most delicious creamy corn and tomato soup. Looking at the picture now, hours later, it makes me really hungry!

I spent the rest of the evening watching Mad Men, it might just be my new favorite TV show, and of course I am netflixing it. Watching it makes me giggle, and it also makes me want to go back in time when people seemed to care more about appearance and style. Someone build me a time machine, pretty please with sugar on top? K thanks. <3


Is it so wrong that I secretly wish I could be a cute, apron wearing housewife? hah!

I have the day off tomorrow, there are so many good vintage stores on Hawthorne, and I plan on stopping by each one. I am on the look out for some good stuff. I also have some paintings to do, some really cute puppies!!

With that said, and my stomach growling, I am gonna grab a quick snack, and try to get some sleep.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Mad Men fills me with joy. And anger. And jealousy.

It's wonderful.

I've heard a lot about that show. I think I might just have to check it out. I think it would be so much fun to be able to go back in time & dress like that! Everyone just seemed to be so much more classy & sophisticated.

Ahhh, soup on a rainy day—there is nothing better! Any chance of getting that recipe?

hah i always say that, you look at all the pretty photos of the women, and men back in the old days, all dressed up, and gorgeous, and then you go out, and see so many bogans in the shops, and streets, and it makes you wish it would be back in those days, even more!
(bogans, here are like your trailer trash people there ;) )

have fun thrifting, hope u score bigtime.

That food looks delicious!

Sometimes, I think the same thing! That I secretly want to be a housewife and not have to work...I think eventually I would probably lose my mind...but I really do love not working, even though I like my job most of the time!

I secretly (or not-so-secretly) wish I was a housewife too. Taking care of the wee beast, making dinner, having cocktails at 4 in the afternoon....sounds good to me!
Seriously though, I actually like doing all those domestic things.

Could you share the recipe? I've been looking for a good tomato soup too.

erin said...

I'd love to see the recipe, too!

Speaking of sailor dresses, I saw this cute sailor jumper on the Urban Outfitters website in the "new" section. The link I tried to copy and paste isn't working, otherwise I'd share it. I hate regretting not buying something. Hopefully you find something perfect for you soon!
