Andy and I had a rousing housewarming party yesterday. It was a good impetus for us to finish assembling all the various furniture we’ve ordered and to finally get a few things put away that had been lingering. Then I spent today climbing out from under mountains of dishes and the place feels great now! We still need art on the walls and maybe some rugs, but I feel pretty overwhelmed by both of those, so it may be awhile (and that’s fine by me).
I love this list of 59 things to do to feel alive.
I have a tendency to save my stickers. But I have a new modus operandi of not owning anything “precious.” Not that I don’t want nice things, but that I want everything I own to be something that I USE and love while I’m doing it! I don’t want to constantly worry about chipping things, staining things, etc. I want nice things, but I want to use them. So I guess I’m not saving my stickers!
These cats just made me smile.
I have embraced the quitting of books of late. It took a long time for me to get there, but really? Life’s too short to spend time reading a book you’re not enjoying. No one is going to give you a gold star for finishing it. It doesn’t matter in the cosmic scheme of things, and you’re the only one telling yourself it does!
20 things you need in your kitchen to cook like a pro I have most of these! My kitchen shears are indispensable. And a cookie scoop is on my list!
It’s been hot and humid here.

And it seems like all of a sudden lots of people are getting engaged!
I get excited and always comment on engagement statuses and then always regret it because notifications. (Not really. But kind of.)— Laura Lindeman (@lclindeman) June 21, 2014
I finally went to see The Fault in Our Stars this afternoon. I love John Green and I also hate John Green a little bit.
Happy Sunday, and on to Monday!
