The Ice Is Getting Thinner

...And by that I mean, I can see spring at the end of winter's tunnel.  Actually, I think I'll capitalize Spring and Winter, they're characters in this post.  Moving on.  The last time I posted on here, I said something to the effect of, wow, I can't believe February is halfway over, and boom, it's March.  I have really got to do a better job of keeping rintherealworld a living, breathing blog, consider this CPR. 

My parents are visiting this weekend, and I'm excited to see them.  We will probably do some shopping and maybe hit up Dave Matthews' winery out in Albemarle County, which is really cool.   And we'll probably eat some food, too.

In their honor, I'm making a new recipe from a book that JavaLady gave to me as a Christmas gift entitled Chocolate Cakes:  50 Great Cakes for Every Occasion.  Who knew I liked cake?  Anyway, it's called, "raspberries-on-the-bottom cake," which sounds delicious. I will tell you how it goes.

In other news, I still haven't finished my wrap skirt, and I am bummed about that.  I wanted to have it completed before March 1, fail on my part.  It is my celebration-of-Spring project, so I guess I have a few days until the season is official.

I feel like this is a random topic buffet, but have y'all heard of Pinterest?  I found out about it through some blogs that I read and thought it was such a great idea.  Here's why I think it's so cool:  it's a place to collect your favorite images found while beebopping around on the internet.  I have been testing it out to see how I like it, and I love it.  It's an awesome place for me to store ideas for my very own house one day, pictures of DIY projects that I want to tackle but can't for the lack of space in my apartment, dresses that I think are stunning, etc.  You get the point.  So rintherealworld is on Pinterest, check it out.  It's a pretty neat site.  Okay, peace out.

here i am, stumbling upon your blog. it's a convoluted story involving facebook that will tell you how i got here after quite awhile away... anyway, i love that your post is called "the ice is getting thinner." it reminds me of the death cab for cutie song that sean and i used to listen to on the many colorado bus rides we all took together, which naturally reminds me of my fondest memories of the three of us. miss you, R.
