I’ve never done a post like this before, but I thought I would share some of my favorite things lately as well as some things that I am not exactly loving. Let’s see how this goes!
Loving: Our deck which is finally finished! My favorite thing is to sit out there on weekend mornings with my coffee. Last weekend Rob and I got back from our runs, ate breakfast, and then headed out to the deck with our coffee. I also like sitting out there and watching the sun rise.
Not Loving: All the drama that went along with getting our deck furniture. We chose to buy our set from Haverty’s partly because it was in stock. The day before it was supposed to be delivered they said they had to send it back because a cushion was missing. Once they rescheduled, they ended up sending it with the wrong cushion anyway! A few weeks later, they were supposed to send a replacement (the entire set- because it would be too easy to just replace the cushion) and that had to be rescheduled too. One of these days we will get our missing cushion, maybe.
Loving: This new curling iron. I had wanted to get a thicker one, and when Janae posted a huge discount on this one I couldn’t resist. I feel like it just takes a few minutes to add some waves and is easier than using a smaller curling iron and trying to cover all my hair.
Not Loving: I’ve burned myself twice already since using this curling iron. I even wore the glove it came with on one of my hands, but I burned the thumb of my other hand and the front of my shoulder.
Loving: Double Duckpin beer from Union Craft Brewery (a local Baltimore brewery that we visited in June). With an 8.5% alcohol volume, this stuff is strong, so one is (usually) enough. I’ve definitely been enjoying IPAs this summer!
Not Loving: Throwing away half full bottles of white wine. I only drink white when I’m REALLY in the mood, so I’l have a glass or two, and then I end up not wanting white again for weeks so the rest of the bottle gets tossed. Rob never drinks white any more either.
Loving: My new Lululemon shorts. I had been hanging on to a gift card since Christmas so I finally used it for a new running outfit. I had never tried Lululemon shorts before and they did not disappoint!
Not Loving: That I’ll still wearing this silly tape on my foot. I’m glad I found a brand that stays on longer but I am really over having to deal with the tape at all. And I’m too nervous to stop wearing it.
Loving: These brownies that I randomly decided to make. They’re so simple and definitely hit the spot when I needed a chocolatey dessert!
Not Loving: The fact that our microwave was recalled. Apparently it can start a fire, so we were told to stop using it and unplug it until it can be replaced. Luckily we saved the old one from our apartment! (If you have a Whirlpool you can check here to see if yours was recalled) I called about it last Friday, and still haven’t heard about about when they can replace it.
