Friday Phone Dump

1) Bozeman has gotten more and more cuddly recently–this photo was taken while he was sitting on my lap at my desk chair.  I love that little guy.

2) Yum!  I finally tried The Loaded Bowl food truck after following them on Instagram and getting their vegan cheese sauce from the grocery store for about a year.  Their stacked enchiladas with roasted potatoes and grilled green beans did not disappoint!

3-5) More Cubs games at Skinny Slims.  Guys, it’s still been true that we’ve only won the games when Brian has been at Skinnys!  Go Cubs Go!

6) My cousins, Mike and Lacie, were in town this weekend with their sweet son, Kolten!  We didn’t get to see them too much, but it was great to spend the time with them that we did have.  :)

7) Well, we found these two homeless puppies in our neighborhood, and we’ve been taking care of them for the past few days while we try to find them a home!  They are brother and sister, and they are so sweet.  They’re also taking over the rest of this phone dump, since that’s most of what I’ve taken photos of this week.

8) Watching a Cubs game (we lost that one) at our house with all the puppies….and Blake’s face when he saw I was taking a photo haha

9) More morning snuggles with Bozeman…and the 4th Harry Potter book :)

10) They’ve been wearing each other out

10212016-phone-dump5

11) They’ve been wearing me out too–having two baby puppies and Bozeman in the house has meant endless streams of tea and coffee for me this week.  And I’m still tired exhausted!

12) More sleeping dogs haha

Really though, these pups are adorable but I’m so so tired.  I’m hoping we find them a good home soon!  This weekend we will be doing our very best to  r e s t  since we have been failing at that recently.  I hope your weekend is lovely and restful too!

love,

M

Europe 2016: Notre Dame & Sainte Chapelle

Hello, friend!

I’m back after a bit of a break with more Europe photos for you :) Our second day in Paris was sunnier than the first, but I think it was actually colder!  We had a long day of exploring to get to, so we started off in search of crêpes and coffee.  Our first mistake was walking straight past that coffee shop across the street from our apartment…coffee was nowhere to be found for some reason!  We managed to get some crêpes to-go (we couldn’t get a table anywhere since we didn’t make a reservation…we don’t speak French) and we took them to the gorgeous Place des Vosges to enjoy the sunshine.

After enjoying the square for as long as we possibly could without coffee, we took our sweet crêpes (we had already eaten the savory ones) to the nearest coffee shop we could find–a Starbucks….

Which I normally wouldn’t visit while traveling, but I was so sleepy/cold/in need of caffeine by this point that I gladly asked for a giant americano without even trying to speak French.  Not exactly my proudest moment, but you know what?  That americano with my chocolate crêpe was fantastic, and that Starbucks was the coolest one I’ve ever seen.

After enjoying the warmth and caffeine, we started walking to Notre Dame.  I can’t say it enough, Paris is stunning.

We walked by these guys filming a hip hop dance video on the bridge…

After reflecting on the lovely Notre Dame, we walked to Sainte Chapelle for some more stained glass wonder.  Seriously, this was just a mind blowing experience.

When we left there, we got to see some dreamy golden light bless the buildings as we headed toward the Shakespeare and Co bookstore (my lovely cousin Katy lived in Paris last summer, and she said this was a must-see…it was)

So Shakespeare and Company, what a place!  It’s an all English bookstore + coffee shop that’s right by Notre Dame.  You’re not allowed to take photos inside, but it’s kind of like if the Weasleys owned a bookshop.  It’s as if the books themselves are holding up the ceiling–dreamy!

We were tired after a long day of walking, so we tried to go to some restaurants we had written down.  Unfortunately, we needed to make a reservation for all but one, and that one had a line out the door and around the block!  We made the most of it by walking down the street until we found a place that seemed decent, and we found this French restaurant!  I don’t have the name for you (sorry), but I can tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed our meat and cheese plate with a baguette and champagne!

We turned in early to sleep off the lingering sickness and our full day of walking.  I’ll bring you photos of our last day in Paris soon!

Thanks for reading and viewing, friends!  Do you have your own Parisian travel stories?  I’d love to hear them :)

Happy Wednesday!

love,

M

Inspiration Shoot: A Little Darker

This shoot reminds me of that first feeling of cold air after the warmer weather leaves.  The way it can sometimes take your breath away–signaling to you that everything is slowing down and getting a little darker, a little more quiet, a little less showy.

Feel free to listen to this song while you enjoy these photos of the lovely Maddy.  We took these in New Mexico last October.

Friday Phone Dump

“On Nov. 8, we can show our children that here in America, we reject hatred and fear and in difficult times, we don’t discard our highest ideals. No, we rise up to meet them. We rise up to perfect our union. We rise up to defend our blessings of liberty. We rise up to embody the values of equality and opportunity and sacrifice that have always made this country the greatest nation on Earth.

That is who we are. And don’t ever let anyone tell you differently.”

Michelle Obama

1-4) This week has felt like Cubs week for us, since the Cubs won their first series against the Giants!  We watched all 4 games, which meant we didn’t get a lot of sleep this week.  Since we’ve been watching at Skinny Slims, we’ve enjoyed walking around to see all the new development in Deep Deuce and Bricktown.  Also, Brian asked me to take this photo of him to send to our English friends haha

img_9803

5) We woke up on Saturday to find this….our friends Danielle and Blake TP’d us at 4am!

10142016-phone-dump3

6-7) Back at Skinny Slims to watch another Cubs game!

8) Whew, the Presidential Debate…yeah.  I’ve ignored politics my whole life, but I recently realized that I was only able to ignore it because of my privilege.  The system I’m a part of is one that takes care of me, but there are others who are not taken care of and who are not having their voices heard.  I feel I need to pay attention and listen and speak up for those whose voices cannot be as loud as mine.  All that being said, that debate was ugly.  Also, make sure you go vote!  Ok, I’m done.

10142016-phone-dump4

9-10) We watched game 3 at our house, which lasted until 1:45am and we lost :( It was funny watched Brian and Blake play with Bozeman though, their strategy is to face the wall and let Bozeman bark at them in confusion haha

10142016-phone-dump5

11) We had two of Colin’s friends from work over for dinner on Tuesday.  David and Jeremiah are hilarious!  They all wanted to take a grumpy photo on the couch since they’ve had a long couple of months working mandatory overtime, I think it turned out well :)

12) After dinner we turned on game 4.  We were losing until a really exciting double score that tied the game, and eventually we won!  Blake and Brian were at Skinny Slims, and Brian says the game turned around the second he walked in the door, so we’ll be watching the rest of the games there.  We’re not superstitious, we’re just a little stitious haha (actually I’m not even “a little stitious”, I just think that quote is hilarious!)

img_9813

13) Hahaha, I stopped by to see Bethany earlier this week, and her puppy greeted me in a sparkly banana split costume!!! Oh my gosh, I was rolling–so good!

10142016-phone-dump6

14-15) Guys, I really think Mexican hot chocolate may be my favorite thing ever.  Whole Foods had a sale on Taza chocolate including my favorite kind, the Guajillo Chili.  So spicy and delicious!

10142016-phone-dump7

16-17) We had a true chilly Autumn day yesterday, and it was glorious.  It’s supposed to get back up to 90 degrees this weekend, so Danielle and I went for a super long walk at Lake Overholser to soak up the cold!  Bozeman loved it too, and he slept like a rock for the rest of the day.

This weekend I have family in from out of town, we’re watching two more Cubs games (GO CUBS GO!), and we’re going to the HARRY POTTER STREET FESTIVAL on Sunday!!  I hope your weekend is fantastic, friend!

love,

M

Friday Phone Dump

“It was cold, you had your hands inside your sleeves
As we walked I heard the laughter in the leaves
See the shadows lying now where once we stood
And I would lie down right there if only I could

The music came to me, it came across the sound
And you laughed and shown and danced a circle around
As we walked away, I saw a shadow on the ground
There were stones inside my pockets that I found”

1) With every taste of Fall weather we get, I try to spend more time outside!  Bozeman and I went to the park for a few hours to read (me) and chase squirrels (him) and it was lovely.

2) Guys!  This is the best lettering I’ve ever done!  Haha, I’ve just been copying things I see on Pinterest to practice, and this one turned out semi-decently.  Not quitting my day-job anytime soon, but I’m pretty proud!

10072016-phone-dump2

3-4) Since we had some chilly night time lows this weekend, we decided to “camp” in the backyard with Bozeman!  He loved getting to snuggle with us, usually he sleeps on the floor by our bed so this was a treat for him and us :)

10072016-phone-dump3

5-6) We’ve gone to see my cousins in their high school’s musicals for years now, and this was our last one since Matthew is a senior!  They performed “The Fiddler on the Roof“, and it was fantastic.  We love you, Matthew!

7) Colin had a conference downtown earlier this week, so I got up early with him!  We got coffee at Junction, and I dropped him off so he didn’t have to pay to park his car downtown all day.  I don’t get up to see the sunrise very often, but when I do it’s always magical :)

As you can see, it’s been a slow week for phone pictures!  Sometimes that just happens I guess.  This weekend we’re watching the Cubs game (Go Cubs, Go!!) and hopefully tackling our current to-do list while enjoying this chilly(er) weather.  I hope this weekend is lovely and relaxing for you, friend!

love,

M
