Home Snaps

Here’s a couple of snaps around the house! I got this awesome candle at the thrift store, and I’m so in love with it. The bone is from my dear friend Victoria, who decorated it with flowers :)

Thrifted wicker chair!!

Carriage Hill Farm

Since the weather was so nice on Groundhog's day, Joe and I decided to go on a hike and of course brought Steve! We hiked some slightly muddy trails around the lake and then decided to go and check out the farm. After making kissy noises at the sheep for a few minutes, a goat led them all over to us. They were all so cute, the goat loved being scratched behind the antlers and one of the sheep figured out how to scratch his bum on the fence which was hilarious. There were also some friendly chickens in a coop, some turkeys, and horses that were too busy eating hay to hang out with us. It was a pretty great trip!

I made more soup! I’ve been killing the recipe goal this month. I forgot to take pics until it was basically all in the pot, but it’s just a simple minestrone recipe. Easy and tasty :) I put it in my new Stanley thermos which kept it piping hot all day, which ruled because I had a closing shift, and got to eat a hot meal during it.

366 - Week 3

25/366 - I was very behind on sleep between staying up for the X-Files and opening the shop a few morning in a row, so I spent the afternoon napping with Steve and watched the second episode that night.
26/366 - Stopped into Warehouse 4 again, can’t get enough of that S’mores flavor!!
27/266 - Got donuts from Bill’s before running errands. So damn good :)
28/366 - I got a Stanley thermos from Kroger on sale!! This thing is like magic, I looove it. I made soup, and several hours late when I opened it for dinner at work, it was piping hot!! So awesome.
29/366 - Steve and I sent this photo to my Mom to make her smile, because her shoulder has been hurting her. She said it worked :)
30/366 - The view of the sunrise from work was pretty beautiful!
31/366 - Just honing my craft ;)

New Blanket!!

For maybe a month now I’ve been deliberating on what kind of comforter to buy. Mine was shot to hell and back, a hand-me down probably over a decade(or maybe two) old, with the stuffing shooting out the top and all the seams popped. It was way past time. So I researched and tried to decide between down, or down alternative. I was leaning to the alt because I am allergic to basically everything and figured I’d be allergic to that too. I was thiisss close to buying one on Amazon, but I was scared to buy something I couldn’t see and touch myself in person first(even though I could send it back, I just wanted instant gratification-to find the ONE.)
Then one morning I decided I wanted Bill's donuts, which is in the neighborhood of a Tuesday morning, which is one of my favorite stores right now for home decorating and cheap stuff. I stopped in, and found two I liked! Both had 600 fill(whatever that means) and seemed warm and soft. One down for $50, one alt for $80. I took them out in the back of the store and examined them closely. I liked the alt because it was machine washable, but I liked the down because it was so soft and luxurious. After spending too much time and making employees suspicious, I finally picked the down. What a great choice, I’m obsessed with it!! I need to get a duvet cover stat, but the one I’m in love with on Urban Outfitters hasn’t gone on sale yet so I’m waiting and trying to keep is clean in the meantime, because it seems dry cleaning a down blanket is a bit expensive unfortunately.

X-Files Revival

As you already know, I am a HUGE X-Files fan. So of course you could deduce that I was extremely excited about the 6-episode revival. Well so was my family. In fact my amazing Mom decorated!! It was such a nice surprise, and they ordered pizza too. Plus the episode was awesome, and so was the following one! I’m counting down the days until the next one. Its so funny, I can remember being 8 or 9 and my parents being like “this show is too scary, you can’t watch it” and I’d hear the theme song to the X-Files come on and I’d be like 'Yup!’ and I’d go to my room and play with my beanie babies. Now we can finally watch it together, haha!
Cutest Mom ever!

Alien autopsy lol!!

Delicious brownies!

What I Wore - Overall the Best Outfit!

Crop top - Modcloth
Overalls - Madewell(they're still on sale!)
Boots - Thrifted
Hat - Urban Outfitters (last spring)

OHHHH my gosh you guys, if you follow me on instagram you might recognize these overalls from when I tried them on in store in August. Well, after stalking them online for months and months they finally went on sale and you bet your buns and snatched those sweet babies up!! I am smitten as a kitten, I feel so stinking’ cute in them I’m over the moon. I wish I could wear them everyday honestly. Definitely my favorite outfit at the moment, I love wearing all black and white for some reason. What’s your favorite outfit look like?

As per usual now, here's a nice doofy pic of Steve and I :)
