May 2, 2016


May is my favorite month of the whole year. It is the month that both Justin & I celebrate our birthdays as well as some of our awesome friends. We have a few weekend adventures planned this month. The weather is getting warmer. So many happy things.

I'm currently...

Celebrating tiny victories. We spent a lot of time in the month of April working on our house in Saint Paul and it is officially going on the market. I hope we'll be able to celebrate a quick sale soon.

Reading Dragonfly in Amber. All 734 pages of it before it's due back at the library later this week.

Pondering our options for the fall. Our current lease is up in September and we don't think we'll be staying in the same building for now.

Sipping midwest beers. I was able to stock up on a little bit of everything while back in Minnesota and I'm determined to make them last.

Needing a vacation where all I do is eat, read, sleep and hang out with J.

Watching old school Home Improvement. I forgot how much I loved that show. I also can't stop watching all the HGTV shows that are on Netflix now - Tiny Houses are my favorite.

Listening to the new Lumineers album. I love the whole thing and have had it on repeat.

Practicing saving my money. We have just dropped lots of cash money on the updates to our house, so we are going to try and spend a little less this month. We failed miserably this weekend with a day in the city, but it's a new month.

Loving pesto on everything lately. Green is the color of the season.

Focusing on food this month. Our goal this month is to not waste a single piece of food. The more I learn about food, the more important each bite I take has become.

Happy May everyone.

Linking up with these lovely ladies.


  1. hope the house sells fast!!!

    i am in such a need of a vacay. our first big one is in july but i've scheduled the last friday off each month until them to tie me over!

  2. Hooray for birthday month!! :) I hope the house sells soon and all your hard work pays off ASAP! :)

  3. Sending quick selling vibes! I'm going to check out the new Lumineers. I feel woefully behind in new music.

  4. I'm with you on the pesto-I can't get enough of it lately.

  5. Have you seen the Tiny House Hunters? Somehow combining two of my favorite shows on HGTV did not disappoint.

  6. What a great goal to not waste any food. And so much harder than it sounds sometimes. Some weeks I really feel like one day all my produce is super fresh & the next day I look down & it's almost all bad. My fridge is pretty bare right now. But I'm just one person, so it can't be too full or it would never get used. I think I probably have just the right amount, even if it looks a little sad.

  7. tiny victories are always in need to be celebrated!
    i need to practice saving cash as well - it's been a struggle the last few months.

  8. Ah, your ideal vacation sounds just like what I need! I hope you're able to take a vacay soon. Enjoy your summer! Thanks for linking up!


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
