Friday Favorites - Week 367


hello dear internet friends,

today is the last day of my two weeks of house-sitting at my parents' house. My boyfriend has already gone home two days ago, and I'm enjoying the peaceful quiet of being alone. Here's what my week has been like
  • Met up with my supervisor of my master thesis and finally got the green light for the registration of my thesis. (yay!) Also, I'm about 80% done, so double-yay!
  • With me house-sitting at my parents' without my usual "photo equipment" at hand, my options for blog posts were kinda limited. Which is why I went for this spring gift basket (not sure how I feel about it though). Take a look if you like.
  • I also visited my baby tree that has outgrown me and even my 6'2'' tall boyfriend by now! (yes, we are technically plant parents, lol)
  • Finally watched the final episodes of Prison Break (season 4 that is) which to be honest weren't that great. Season 1 was amazing, season 2 was still very good, season 3 was okay and season 4 was just... nah. (not sure what to expect of season 5 that is starting this week...)
  • If you are an introvert like me, this open letter from an introvert will probably resonate with you. If you are an extrovert, this letter will help you understand us introverts :)
  • Going to make this coconut banana chocolate snack cake by Jenn for a friends birthday tomorrow (with vegan eggs though). Should be great :)
  • If I do find any time, I will also bake this vegan and gluten-free chocolate chip coffee cake by Kaila that I'm featuring this week because it looks dang delicious! Unfortunately my boyfriend doesn't like the taste of coffee at all - so I guess I'll just have to eat the cake all by myself... shame ;)

But now on to the party!
