Currently... April 2017

It has been quite some time since I've last posted on here! But the past month and a half has been so hectic! My best friend got married in early April so I've been busy helping with all of those festivities and in early March my boyfriend bought a house! We have been renovating and refreshing it before we move in and we've spent almost every weekend and most week nights there. It has been way more work than we expected but it's really starting to come together and it's going to look great when we can move in. I am so excited! So, those are just two of the reasons I've been so busy lately but I'm hoping once we're moved in then I'll get on a more regular posting schedule. For now, this is what I've currently been up to!


PLANNING: PORTLAND, OREGON
This has been a city that Kirk and I have been wanting to visit together since we first started dating so it's so exciting that we are finally going! I have been researching all the best restaurants to eat at, places to visit, and outdoor areas to explore! One of my best friends lives in Seattle so she and her husband will be coming down for a couple days when we're there to visit! Our next big vacation after this one will be Portland, Maine!

READING: ATTACHMENTS by Rainbow Rowell
This book has been a bit of a struggle to get into. The last book I read, Behind Closed Doors, was so good and more of a thriller that it's making it really hard to get into this more slow-paced zero thrill book. If I can't get into it soon I'll have to put it on the shelf and try it out another time. What are some of your favorite thriller books? I'm always looking for a new suggestions!

LISTENING TO: DIVIDE  by Ed Sheeran
When Ed Sheeran released his two singles Shape of You and Castle on the Hill I knew that Divide was going to be one of his best albums yet! Sure enough, it's amazing and I can't stop listening to it. Check out my Spring 2017 Spotify playlist to see what else I've been listening to lately!

WATCHING: QUANTICO
I am obsessed with this show right now! Netflix only has the first season right now but you should still start watching it! It's kind of like Pretty Little Liars meets the FBI so it always has you guessing what's going to happen next.

CRAVING: SUMMERY DRINKS
Now that the sun is shining all I've been thinking about is fruity, fresh summer drinks! Especially raspberry mojitos which I'll be sharing a recipe for soon!

WEARING: LL BEAN HALF ZIP
I received this sweater from my parents for Christmas and I have been loving it! It's perfect for a mellow day at the office or for a day trip to Taylors Falls for a hike. 

EATING: ONE POT PASTA
Keep an eye out for this recipe soon! I discovered this extremely easy and savory dish back in November and I've made it about 10 times since. It's amazing how few ingredients can create such a flavorful meal!

LOVING: SPRING WEATHER
We've been getting really lucky here in Minnesota lately. As I'm writing this it is 60 degrees and sunny. This weather is giving me spring fever and I can't wait for it to continue! I recieved some flower seed packets for Christmas and I can't wait until it's warm enough for me to plant them!
