One // Aaron loves survivalist TV shows, and “Alaska: The Last Frontier” totally fits the bill for him. I’m more on board with this one because it doesn’t involve impractical hypotheticals about zombies or anarchy. The show is about a family living in Alaska as ranchers or subsisting on their own. It all sounds romantic until you see them ice fishing for 10 hours or eating scrawny squirrels. No thanks! Two // This has one of Aaron’s favorite shirts (he’s wearing it right now, in fact!) because it’s one of the few shirts we’ve found that fits him well. We’ve stocked up on a bunch of white ones in the same style, too. Three // Allison and Jordan introduced us to this game when we were in NYC and we love it! Aaron’s not always into playing games, but this one is an exception! (That and Star Wars Trivial Pursuit…) We love playing it with our friends! Thanks for the birthday gift, Allison and Jordan! Four // Aaron loves tools and he’s already loved using his drill to make us a coffee table and stand for our projector! Whatta guy. Five // Aaron breezed through this book this past week, and he absolutely loved it and recommends it.
One // This is a genius idea for a cookbook. I made my first recipe in it last week, and I made this delicious chocolate cake in the pan I cooked it in. Let that sink in. No mixing bowls, no cup measurements. Everything was done using a scale and the pan I cooked it in. I am sold. Aaron’s also excited at the prospect of not doing dishes for weeks on end, too. Two // I finally got to read Divergent this week! I’ve been waiting for it forever at the library, but my friend Clarissa let me borrow her copy! I loved the first one and I can’t wait to read the second! Three // Remember when I said I was going to try running this year? Well, Aaron and I took advantage of the weird heatwave we had last week to start running outside. When I say we’re starting slow, I mean I specifically am starting sloooooow. Like starting off with little 20 minute run/hobbles around the block while Aaron patiently keeps my glacial pace. I’ve never been a runner, but there’s a start for everything! Now that it’s cold again (boo), I’ve started running during my lunch break in the gym at my office using one of those couch to 5k podcasts. The narrator has a British accent and the music is this weird kind of 90s inspirational music, but I think I can keep up with it. Plus, I bought this bright magenta sports bra to motivate me! Four // I made the dangerous discovery that there’s an Anthropologie within a 7 minute walk of my work (sooo tempting), and I found this gorgeous serving bowl this last week. It fills a perfect gap in my serving dishes collection! Five // I am pretty obsessed with this bread box Aaron got me for my birthday. We now go through a 25-pound bag of flour every month and we love eating fresh bread from our bread maker! I love the chic lines and pretty wood of this one! It’s worked amazingly!
Happy weekend everyone!
