The Ultimate Reusable Shopping Bag: Baggu Review

The Ultimate Reusable Shopping Bag: Baggu Review

I’ve been collecting reusable shopping bags for quite a while. I’ve used them at Aldi’s for years and I used them everywhere in DC last summer because you get charged in the district for plastic bags. Now that we’re settled in Alexandria, I’ve been using them everywhere once again. They don’t charge for plastic bags in Virginia, but everyone here is very conscious of recycling and it’s just plain easier when you’re walking. Plastic bags aren’t very big and they aren’t…

What I Read: July 2016

I know, I’ve been M.I.A. for a while. I’m sorry guys, it’s been crazy. I’ve taken on an extra position at work and been trying to get everything ready for our move. Plus Ivan’s been in Arizona for the past two weeks, so I’ve been doing everything solo. But.. I did get some reading squeezed in this month. 1. The Girl From Everywhere (The Girl From Everywhere #1) by Heidi Heilig Nix has spent her entire life aboard her father’s…

H5F4: Prepping for the Big Move

1. I Made it Back to Barre Class Remember when I went to my first Barre class? It was about a month ago and I unfortunatley haven’t had time to drop into another class. It was such a great workout, but I’ve just been so busy. I finally made it back last night and once again, it kicked my butt. I’m thinking about signing up for a weekly class when we get to DC. It would be a great way to…

I haven’t had a ton of free time to set aside for reading lately, but I did manage to get 3 books in this month. I’m still way behind in my goodreads challenge, but I have high hopes for after the big move. I did manage to get two crossed off on my Great American Road Trip Challenge though. Once we get settled in D.C., I’ll have some free time again :) 1. Frannie and Tru by Karen Hattrup When Frannie…

H54F: Moving Forward

1. Photos from the Cedar Point Run & Ride 5k So I’m such a sucker for race photos. I love combing through the pages and pages of photos, trying to spot myself. I’ve never actually purchased them before, but I bought 3 shots from this 5k. It’s unfortunate that it was so bloody hot. As you can see, I was quite sweaty. Oh well. It is what it is. I really need to work on smiling for the cameras though. It’s…

Learn to Cook With My 5 Favorite Youtube Chefs

As you guys probably know by now, I’m a huge fan of cooking shows. I used to get my fix from the Food Network and Cooking Channel, but lately I’ve noticed that they seem to be airing more and more reality shows. They never seem to air cooking shows at night and we don’t have a DVR to record things during the day. Therefore I’ve turned to my roku and youtube for help. It’s surprising to me just how many…

What I Read: May 2016

May was a bit of a slow month for me. I had a lot going on, so I didn’t get through as many books as I had hoped. However, I really loved those that I did read! 1. Justice for Sara by Erica Spindler When seventeen-year-old Katherine McCall awakened one morning to find her beloved sister, Sara, brutally murdered, her whole life changed in the blink of an eye. Kat was named the prime suspect and, on a string of…
