Ever since Dill and I figured out what we wanted to do with the front room in our house, I’ve been so excited to slowly fill it up. Our dining table sits in our breakfast room near the kitchen because we wanted to be able to use it on a daily basis, especially when we have kids. We knew a formal dining room wouldn’t get much, or any, use in our house.
We all know sitting for long periods of time is bad for you. We all know how important to our health exercising is. So WHY is it so hard to workout and maintain an active lifestyle?
Here’s what my day looks like. I wake up around 6:00am (more like 6:40am, because snooze buttons), I’m out the door by 7:10am and I’m at work to start my day at 7:30am. Then I leave the office around 5:30pm, or later. I work 9/80 schedules, which means I work 9 hours everyday except Fridays, which I have off every other week.
I feel VERY blessed to work this schedule because it is so refreshing to have a three day weekend every other week. However, it makes for longer days. The last thing I Continue reading “Lunch-Time Gym Time”→
Our living room finally got a very much needed update this weekend! Coffee tables make a huge difference in any living room and finding the right one to fit the style you’re going for can be hard. Like, comically-contemplating-for-months hard. I even took Continue reading “Modern Coffee Table”→
It’s not impossible but it’s definitely a little harder to find unique, quality coffee shops (AKA not Starbucks) in our suburb area. Next on my list of nearby coffee shops to visit was THIRD GEN COFFEE. This one is located in an older Continue reading “A Review: THIRD GEN COFFEE”→
Lately, I’ve been struggling with the gotta-have-its. They’re similar to the need-to-knows (which I also deal with) but applies when you’re envying someone else’s material things, life, hair, vacation, etc. I wouldn’t even Continue reading “The Gotta-Have-Its”→
Dill and I always look forward to family vacations with the Dimmitt family. When we were dating, we went to Las Vegas and saw the Grand Canyon, and last year we went on my first cruise experience. This year, we headed to Disney World! The last time I was here, I was about 15 years old and after that, Disneyland has been my place. Since then, there have been so many changes made at Disney World, I could barely recognize and remember each park. Perhaps the most unrecognizable was Hollywood Studios, since so much of it is under construction (more on that later).
We had four full days at the parks, so we had plenty of time to get things done.
Things have been so busy at the house, with getting everything ready for family to come visit, I haven’t had time to knock out a gift guide! Here are some of my favorite items, some of which came directly from my wishlist. These items range in price from $13 – $180, so there are plenty of gift ideas, no matter what your budget is!
