Music Monday&Weekend recap


Weekend Recap

Saturday-We went to the market and ended up getting some things for meals for the weeks. The last few times we have gone we have left a little empty handed.  We spent a little more than we usually would, however most of the cost came from buying a 2lb tub of fresh almond butter for $15 and a half a bushel of apples for $9 which is pretty good. We headed up to our favorite bakery for a treat since it’s been a while since we’ve been in and to Recess Coffee for some much needed caffeine. After dropping things off at the apartment and relaxing for a little bit, we headed to the mall and stopped by Old Navy. I ended up buying some new pants for work. They are a black cropped pant with white polka dots and I can’t wait to wear them! I also ended up buying a pair of brown ankle boots there for $2.47!  We stopped by CORE for dinner and ordered my usual (Greens and Ancient Grains bowl) and some vegetarian chili which was delicious. We ended the night with watching a documentary on Netflix call Fed Up. Definitely gave us some motivation to stick to eating clean and cutting on processed foods and sugars. I ended the night by uploading some photos from my digital camera from our Portland trip onto the laptop and editing some of the photos .


Sunday- Went to Wegmans to pick up a few things and I ended up making another batch of homemade pierogis and brought some over to my mom .I still need to finish making the rest tonight to store in the freezer.  Target released their collection with Who What Wear and it is probably one of my favorite collaborations. Since only certain locations carried the collection and one of them being near my mom’s house Garrett and I made a stop. I tried on a few things and ended up going with the white and black polka dot blouse. I figured it was something I could wear to work or on the weekends and wear year round. Dinner ended up being a quick and easy homemade version of instant noodles. After dinner I continued to work on my Portland post. It’s taken me forever to get to being near complete since I wasn’t sure of how I wanted to write the post and kept changing it. I am pretty happy with the results for the most part. I am working on a few last minute things and adding photos to it. It should be posted within the next few days.



Music Monday- It has been a while since I have done one of these. Lately, I have been listening to a mix of some old favorites and some new bands.

Lana Del Rey-Born to Die-The Paradise Edition has been playing …a lot.

Santigold-  I have been listening to Santigold more recently and I am loving the song Disparate Youth

Bon Iver-One of my most played bands.

Sleigh Bells- I have been listening to all of their albums on shuffle. Treats is still my favorite album

Colony House- They were on my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist and I have been listening to them usually when working on blog stuff for some background music.


Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Weekend Update & Music Monday

Hello and Happy Monday!


Nothing too exciting happened this weekend. I ended up going into the office on since they were looking for volunteers to work and were offering OT. Since it is the holiday season and I have a few more gifts to buy, so I figured a few hours wouldn’t be too bad. Thankfully, it wasn’t too chaotic for a Saturday. After work, Garrett and I took a trip out to Thrifty Shopper. One of Garrett’s colleagues had found a  microphone that normally costs at least $100 for about $6 so since then, Garrett is determined to find something just as great. As expected, Garrett didn’t find what he was looking for, though we did spot a pretty cool looking X-Files poster . We then ended up going to Goodwill. I haven’t been to one before, but I was pretty impressed with how neat and clean it was inside.Garrett ended up finding a USB keyboard that he has been searching for since he has a few computers he wants to work on fixing.He also ended up picking up a banana stand of all things to use has a stand for his multiple pairs of headphones he now has.  I didn’t end up buying anything since I was starving and my only thought was going to get dinner. I plan on heading back to Goodwill to pick up a vase or two. Right now I am obsessed with the idea of having an arragement of fresh flowers from looking at other bloggers Instagram accounts. 

Sunday-We planned on waking up early so we could head to our favorite coffee shop Recess, however neither of us wanted to wake up. Since we didn’t want to be out and about all day, we stopped at a near by cafe where I did some work for a future blog post. We headed to the mall to see if they had something I have on my gift list for someone . They didn’t have the item, so like everything else it will be purchased online. Lately I have been obsessed with wanting to buy office supplies and having an office in the apartment. We took a trip to Staples to look at some chairs and desks. Neither of us were too impressed with the selection they had on display. Leaving empty handed, we went to Wegmans to pick up some things for dinner. I ended up making homemade fried meatballs for some meatball subs. Simple and easy to make and something we haven’t had in a while. After dinner Garrett watched his shows on Youtube and I spent time on the internet looking for pre-owned LV bags and bucket bags. 

Music Monday

I haven’t been listening to anything in particular lately and I’m not someone that loves Christmas music. I can tolerate it for about the week before Christmas and during and  that is about it. I have been listening to the playlist on Spotify called Feel Good Indie Rock. It’s filled with bands I already like and someone new ones I haven’t heard of before. It certainly puts me in an upbeat mood. I have the concert bug again, but I don’t think there are any upcoming concerts I want to go to. Or at least non that are nearby. Thankfully, this won’t be a problem if/when we relocate to Austin. My problem I would run into there is what show I would rather go to or spending an insane amount of money on concert tickets. 
I will hopefully be a littler more consistent with posting entries since I’ve been a little of schedule. Hope everyone has a great day and rest of the week.
