The past few days have been a blur of unpacking. My goal is to not feel like we’re living in boxes by my first day at work on Monday. Fingers crossed I reach that goal! I took a break today for a wonderful meetup with Ashley that I’ll be blogging about next week and have a meetup.com meetup tomorrow. Through the wonder that is the Internet there is an Omaha bloggers meetup on Sunday, August 18th. So far 11 bloggers has RSVPed. Please email me if you would like to come as well so I can add you to the head count. I’m really excited!
Here’s a few other things I’ve been loving lately:
Our new car! I’m seriously in love and it is such an upgrade from my old 2000 Dodge Neon. I can’t hate on that car too much though, after finding it dirt cheap in a Walmart parking lot it lasted me my five years in Williamsport. It will be nice to have a car I’m not worried about breaking down every five seconds.
Oh the things you find at Walmart. I’m pretty sure I would be a minion if I was a cartoon character in another life. I’m obsessed with them. Awkward but true fact: Josh and I talk to each other in those minion voices all the time. And we’ve been doing it long before we ever saw or head of the movies. If this had been a stuffed animal and not a pinata I would have bought it in a heartbeat.
My new Under Armour Spine Vice sneakers are amazing. Not only are they cute, they’re super comfy while working out.
Speaking of working out, I’m in love with the gym in my apartment. For indoor running you really can’t beat the view.
Josh is the sweetest. He surprised me with flowers from the local Farmers Market. They have been brightening up our kitchen table all week and making me smile every time I pass them by.
I smile just thinking about the sunshine muffins from Urban Abbey. They’re made with walnuts, blueberries, strawberries, and bananas and are absolutely delicious. I’m hoping to grab another at the Farmers Market this weekend.
It was pretty cool spending a night out by a fire bar enjoying a drink in Midtown Crossing. All that was missing was s’mores!
My big girl job present to myself. I’ve needed a new Pilates mat for a long time and figured I’d treat myself. It’s pretty awesome!
My in-laws are also pretty awesome. They surprised me with this sweet note and package of chocolate covered strawberries the other day.
Most of all I’m loving discovering a new city with my husband. It truly feels like we’re creating a new life here in Omaha and nothing makes me happier.
Question of the Day: Aside from the fact it’s Friday (yay!), what’s making you smile lately?
