"Do Nothing" Day

At some point during last week I proclaimed Sunday, the 21st of March, "DO NOTHING" Day. Being me, it somehow morphed into the following... Purchase everything I need to create my very own vegetable and herb garden on my porch (getting strawberry, tomato, and pepper plants tonight!):

Make soft pretzels from scratch via Smitten Kitchen, and create the most baller beer cheese dip of all time (recipe below):

Matt & Emma's Beer Cheese:

4 oz light cream cheese 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese 4 oz beer (we like Murphy's Stout) 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tsp liquid smoke 1 tsp balsamic vinegar salt & pepper to taste 1-2 tsp dry mustard

*Put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth. You'll need to heat up the mixture in a saucepan right before you wanna eat it so the cheddar melts completely!

Adopt a baby bonsai tree that is about to flower (!!!):

Somehow drop $100 I don't have at Target thanks to the new Liberty of London collection:

And the sad part? The above is only about 50% of what we actually did yesterday. Regardless of how much I accomplished on "DO NOTHING" Day, this guy makes me feel like a total lazy ass...
