12 Things

Sunday, April 29, 2018
We took a little drive through part of Tonto National Forest. It was hard finding spots to pull over and get the camera out, but here are some photos I managed to get!

My birthday was earlier this month! My mom, sister, and mother-in-law came to visit! Three extra people staying in our little townhouse was a bit claustrophobic, but it was nice to have everyone here. We had a low-key few days. I didn’t want to do anything big, so we watched lots of movies and went shopping! It was exactly the weekend I wanted! Next month is Joe’s birthday so we are driving back home to California for the week of his birthday! It’s been years since we have gone back to where we’re from. I am excited, yet super anxious about it! I plan on taking lots of pictures on our drive! It’s an 11 hour drive, but I think it will be a lot of fun!

1. I feel like my body is still recovering from spending a weekend in LA a few weeks ago. We ate out a lot and my stomach isn’t used to it. It was also an insanely stressful trip, so I'm sure that has a lot to do with it too.

2. Gracie lost 2 pounds! Isn’t it insane how an animal only needs to lose a couple pounds and they are at a healthy weight. I wish!

3. My sister is moving in with us soon. I feel like I’m being extra lazy and enjoying my alone time (and family time) before she officially moves in. She is already ordering things and shipping them here for me to put in her room. 

4. I am weirdly into cleaning videos on youtube. There is nothing more relaxing than watching other people clean their houses. Some of my favorites are The Simple Life, LoveMeg, and VassuerBeauty. 

5. I have played way too much Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the last few days. But, I can’t stop! I’m obsessed my Nintendo Switch (early birthday present)!

6. We are thinking about getting one of those at-home cycling bikes. We already have weights, balls, and a total gym, so we want something for cardio! Any suggestions?

7. I have medium-ish length hair and I am dying to chop it off. Gahhhh. I don’t know. Should I go for it?

8. I’ve been getting more into cooking, but it’s hard coming up with recipes. I came up with the best vegetarian chili recipe! It is so good. I’m thinking about posting the recipe, but then I’d have to actually measure everything.

9. I don’t measure recipes. I just wing it.

10. We finally decided on a builder! We are hoping to start the process of building a new house at the beginning of next year. Hopefully this indecisive person will be able to pick some great interior options!

11. I got a new camera and I’m obsessed with it. I can’t wait to get out and take some photos when Joe has some more time off!

12. We took a drive and went East with no destination in mind other than enjoying the scenery, but then the pavement ended and we had to turn around. It made me think that if we stay in Arizona, we may have to invest in a Jeep or something with 4-wheel drive. I was bummed that we had to turn around, but also secretly thankful. I couldn't stop thinking about horror movies! However, we are officially on the hunt for an old Jeep!
