June 5, 2017


I can't believe it is already June. I feel like we just moved to Pittsburgh. We have been married and living here for almost a whole year already! Time flies man. 

This summer is shaping up to be great. Though I do miss living near the beach, it has been so nice to feel settled somewhere, and able to enjoy the summer without worrying what comes next. Honestly, I worry about that so much anyway, so living in the moment has been so refreshing. 

It's so nice to be able to take a walk and grab a beer with Dave if that's what we want to do. Or to spend some time reading with a face mask on. Or to drive up to Rochester to help my SIL with wedding planning for the weekend.  

  • I've been bullet journaling more than ever, and it has brought me so much peace. I still am only doing a few basic layouts, but being able to see the week, day, etc at a glance is everything. I switched from using a small Moleskine notebook to using this ghost grid dot journal, and it is awesome. The spiral bound is perfect, and the size is great. 
  • My wedding rings have basically been too tight to wear comfortably since we got married. I don't know what I was thinking, getting them sized so small, but it was making me feel extra bad that not only have I gained a few pounds, but my wedding rings didn't fit. Last weekend I bit the bullet and drove out to Zales (which is almost 25 min away from us). Since we have the warranty on the rings, the resizing, cleaning and inspection are all free. I'm so excited to finally get them back hopefully next week.
  • We went to the farmer's market this weekend and I had almost forgotten how obsessed I am. We got a bunch of fresh veggies, a delicious cookie, and some coffee where the proceeds went to supporting animals in local shelters. If you are in the Pittsburgh area, the Lawrenceville Farmer's Market is at Arsenal Park every Saturday from 1-4pm until October 29.
  • We are joining Costco. I have been wanting to do this for a long time, but we finally are at the point where it just needs to happen. I buy a lot of our household staples on Amazon, but I think it will be cheaper (and more environmentally friendly) to buy them in a warehouse store. Do you have any tips for shopping at Costco?
  • I watched "Sustainable" on Netflix on Friday, and this one really stuck. The documentary talks about factory farming, what we need to do to sustain our food sources, and generally thinking about creating food to fuel our bodies, instead of creating it for a profit. If you are interested in documentaries, where your food comes from, or farming/gardening, I highly recommend this!
  • I recently ordered one of these hair removal tools, and I can't wait for it to come in the mail. Normally I get my brows threaded, but they always need to be touched up in between. Also, I'm not about that mustache life. Hopefully, this little sucker works well, and is worth the money!

What's up with you lately? Trying anything fun or new? Have you read or watched anything good that you'd recommend?
