Tuesday, June 14


Here's a little bit of what I've been up to currently:

**Obsessing over-- house projects.  Mainly, I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to our back patio and that feels amazing!  I haven't gotten one entire space finished in the new house, so I'm jumping for joy at the prospect of being finished with something!  I can't wait to share it here in a couple of weeks!

**Listening to-- the new Band of Horses album.  It's so good!  Also, I didn't think I'd be saying this in 2016, but I'm really digging the new Weezer album.  Pinkerton will absolutely always have my heart.  Also, I've been making this kind of silly playlist titled "Dad Playlist" on Spotify.  It's all the music I like to imagine dads listening to, but also songs that are nostalgic from my childhood.  That probably makes me sound a little crazy.  Hey, we all have those quirks.  ;)

**Planning-- summer trips!  Johnny, a few friends, and I are going to be seeing Flight of the Conchords at the beginning of next month.  We'll also be traveling out of town to see JR JR in concert later that month!  It's a summer of concerts and traveling and boating and I'm looking so forward to it.  Also, a friend and I are planning a secret little getaway towards the end of the year and it's going to be AMAZING!

**Enjoying-- the little things about summer.  We bought the girls a decent sized above ground pool and it has been great!  Poesy has become a brave little fish, and the pool gives Hope a reason to want to hangout with her little sister.  Also: watermelon, BBQing, dinners on the porch... all of those small things that make you want to soak it all up-- they have me swooning.

**Creating-- I have several sewing projects going at the moment.  I haven't been keeping up with them as quickly as I had hoped because, well... life is busy.  Sewing is still a love of mine, though.  It's something that allows me to zone out and relax.  Other than that, a bunch of gal pals are talking about getting together for one of our craft nights to make macramé plant hangers.  I'm all about that!

What has your June been like so far?  I can't believe how quickly this year is flying by.  Is it just me, or does it continue to go faster and faster?

  7. I believe we have very similar music tastes. :)

    Jealous that you're going to see Flight of the Conchords, and I've been running to the latest Weezer album (though Pinkerton forever.)
