Antoine and I celebrated three months of being married at the end of August, which is just crazy! Seriously, where has the summer gone? [pretty flowers from Trader Joe's]
Summertime-Jessica is a total lush, in case you didn't know! I made a batch of strawberry simple syrup so I obviously needed to whip up some tasty alcoholic beverages: left- strawberry mojito, right- strawberry margarita.
I had been craving a cobb salad so Antoine and I got all the fixings, including some Amish eggs and tasty Ashland-raised bacon. It totally hit the spot!
On the weekends Antoine almost always makes a delicious breakfast for us...but I decided to sneakily make him breakfast on Labor day! I used this recipe; it was really tasty, but next time I would scramble the eggs firs before putting them in the nests.
So many pretty skies lately, these are just two that I happened to capture.
Work has been pretty busy lately! Recently I photographed a bunch of items from the Winkler Center that will be going to New York for exhibit. All the pieces are from the Albert B. Sabin archives and are pretty cool. The photo to the right is a box of Polio slides; Sabin developed the oral polio vaccine in the 1950s.
On Friday Antoine and I left work early to drive up to Columbus for a Black Keys concert. For our pre-concert dinner we got some tasty hot dogs at Dirty Frank's Hot Dog Palace. It was my first time there and it was so good! I got a bacon-wrapped "Classy Lady" (cheese sauce and crushed potato chips) and Antoine got the "Slappy Pappy's Super Sloppy" (bacon, coney sauce, cheddar, sour cream, topped with french fries). We also shared a side of fried leeks, which were awesome! It was all so good and so cheap (and they have a lot of vegetarian and vegan options!). If you find yourself in Columbus I would seriously recommend you check it out! After Dirty Frank's we still had time to kill so we headed over to Grandview so I could pick up some coffee and we could get some ice cream at Jeni's. Always so good!
Antoine's brother (my new brother-in-law) got us Black Keys tickets for our wedding present. Awesome gift, right?! We had a great time, I particularly liked the leader singer from Cage the Elephant's dancing. It was hilarious and mesmerizing!
The whole auditorium lit up by cell phone light before the encore. Craziness!
We're going camping with my sister, brother-in-law, bestest friend, and her boyfriend in two weeks so I got this basic but large pour over (since Antoine doesn't drink coffee so we didn't have anything to make coffee with for camping, except a small French press). Also, delicious coffee from Stauf's, one of my favorite Ohio roasters!

This weekend and last Antoine and I did a fair amount of antiquing and walked away with some goodies I'm very excited about! [this photo is from one of my favorite booths at Heart of Ohio Antique Center]
That's all for now. I'm going to try my hardest to get my photos edited sometime soon (i.e. this week or next). I haven't really taken any photos since Mansfield, but I know I'll take a ton when we go camping!
