Present Sense Impressions

Hey  y’all!  This week’s Present Sense Impressions will be rather short, as I’ve been crazy busy finishing up my last week of work with this firm and so I haven’t had TONS of time to peruse the internet.  I’m sad to leave my current place, but I’m very excited about what the future holds!  I’m so looking forward to my new place and starting a new job.  Don’t worry, I’ll still be bringing all of my fun work accoutrements with me.IMG_0350

On to things that I’m loving lately!!

I was super excited for Jessica, who announced her BIG surprise that she’s expecting!  Then she posted these amazing Salted Bourbon Vanilla Granola with Caramelized Fig Parfaits and this Homemade Vanilla Bean Coffee Syrup (also included a cinnamon brown sugar coffee syrup!) and my brain exploded.  I want to dive into that immediately and just have like 6 cups of coffee just so I can add syrup to it.  I love all things coffee, as I’ve mentioned before, so that was right up my alley!

I was also swooning over al the amazing vegetable recipes people posted recently… specifically:

Ratatouille Pizza from Nutmeg Nanny– gorgeous and looks absolutely fantastic.  I want to eat the whole thing in one sitting.

Zucchini Pasta from Eat the Love. I have never made zucchini pasta but have always wanted to try it.  This seems like a great place to start because it doesn’t require anything fancy like a spiralizer (although I did register for one of those lol).  These flavors just can’t get any more fresh.  Love!

Heirloom Caprese with Mint Pesto from Love and Lemons.  I can’t ever get sick of caprese and I always love seeing a new twist on it.  This is to die for!  More freshness.  Can’t get enough.
