Things I'm Loving Lately

Things I'm Loving Lately

I'm actually watching The Bachelorette. This is big if you know anything about me. I typically hate all reality shows. I have no idea who the Real House Wives of Atlanta, Florida, Orange County, or Chicago are, I just know that the level of drama on those shows far exceeds my level of patience. For now, the Bachelorette seems more my speed. Minimal drama, amazing dates, candle lit romance. Yes please.

My parents officially get the "Best Grandparents Ever Award." A few months back they purchased this amazing chalkboard/whiteboard easel for Little J. This is amazing for two reasons, One: it cuts down on Little J's attempts to decorate our walls--with permanent markers and/or crayon and colored pencils. Two: It's a great learning device. It also comes with additional storage space!

 Speaking of education, Mable Kids Museum in Raleigh, two words: AMA-ZING! We took Little J there this past weekend and were blown away by how incredible it is. Expect loads more from that later!

Am I the only one who didn't know about Girl Meets World? This is very exciting news for me. I grew up watching Boy Meets World and may or may not remember all the words to the theme song. Don't hate. Seriously though, this revelation is almost enough to make me get cable again. But not quite...

If you follow me on Instagram, I'm sure by now you've noticed an influx in juice/smoothie related posts. Since Mr. A is required to maintain certain fitness/health standards for the National Guard, we've been making strides to take better care of ourselves. The major upside is it's a great way for us to trick get Little J to eat her veggies. She absolutely loves her spinach smoothie and I absolutely love the fact that she's eating her greens without having to basically tie her down. It's a win-win for everyone.

I recently discovered Humans of New York on Facebook, and I'm in love. I've always been an avid people-watcher, so I was immediately drawn to this page. I think the creator of this site has done a marvelous job at capturing the beauty and diversity of the streets of New York. It sort of makes me almost want to move there.

What sorts of things are you loving lately? Any interesting new Summer TV shows? New recipes? Leave links below for me to check out.

Until next time,


  1. That is an AWESOME chalkboard. I would have loved something like that growing up!

    1. It is pretty awesome! It makes learning much more simple! We're working our way through the alphabet now.
