Summertime and the livin's easy....

Ya know how the fates align sometimes 
and you have just an all around great day? 

Today was one of those days. 

My bike ride to work serendipitously 
included 3 of my favorite people. 

A hair salon rolled into work and gave $10 haircuts. 
(heck yes, I got one!)

2:30pm the power went out...
which meant I was off work by 3pm on this gorgeous day. 

Which lead to extra long bike rides downtown. 

Dinner, (free!) drinks and books 
with my favorite person at my fav bar. 

Today was a good day.

I was born in a small town....

Scenes from the weekend home! 

10 min from home and we had to stop for gas. 
Anthony found these gems. 

For those of you not from Southern Indiana, 
Ski is the equivalent of Mountain Dew multiplied by Red Bull. 
Otherwise known as not something you drink at 10pm. 

I couldn't get enough of my niece Ellyson! 
What a sweet baby! 

I just wish we lived closer :-( 

Poppies at my grandparent's house. 

And my grandpa quickly cutting it open 
to see what opiates look like.

Not pictured....
Us checking out a dead snake in a hay stack, 
my grandpa telling us that the electric fence was off....
him touching it. 

Anthony and I both grabbing it and getting shocked. 


We realized the boysenberries were ripe! 

And for some reason, 
the grass must taste better in Posey County.
Jax grazes like a cow until we pull him away. 

And then he voms. 
It's grosser than gross. 

The old IU scoreboard has found a new home at North Posey! 

 We went out Sun morning to see it 
and then we ran around the track. 
It was maybe the silliest thing I've done in a while. 
And hard. 
I forgot how bad sprints hurt. 

Sunday night Julia, Joel and I had a hot dogger party!

What a great weekend!

Happy Snappy

What's making me happy this week! 

1. Family
The past 5 months have been so busy.
With the house, jobs, and big life decisions, 
we've been really missing family time lately. 
So this weekend we're in Southern Indiana. 

With that comes trips to Turoni's and Donut Bank. 

Double donut tray, yay! 

2. Huron and Hoyne. 
These are streets in Chicago. 
Streets that my good friends Julia and Colleen are moving to...

What does this make me so happy? 

Huron and Hoyne are only three blocks from our new house.

Here's to summertime funnertime!

Dear husband....

Yesterday you came home from 4 days away
and announced very kindly that I
"needed to put on some l-b-s"

Your helpful solution? 

Upgrading my small popcorn and soda to jumbo. 

I love you dearly. 

Oh, and The Avengers? 
Perfect Summer Blockbuster.

Sunshine day!

Here we go kids...
what's making me happy this week! 

Yes, I talk about how awesome Threadless is all the time....

1. Teambuilding at work.
If Beer Olympics and Kickball don't make 
a person happy, I don't know what does :-) 
The United Kimdom. 
Not only were we the sole team in uniforms, but
we *may have also had an intimidating cheer. 

(**yes, there was  cheer, no it was not intimidating)
Regardless, I think we had the most fun. 

I introduced Threadless to Sink the Biz. 
Which everyone quickly thought was unhygienic and disgusting. 

So, we changed it up and played with water. 

Kickball fun!
Also making me happy was that 
The Big Dill shirt was printed! 
Phil Jones is one of my fav Threadless artists! 

Tis it folks! 
What's making you happy this week?

Dear JaxDog

This move has been pretty stressful, 
huh buddy? 

I can tell because you kept laying on trash,
wouldn't leave us alone, 

Good thing we're almost done painting and moving in!
