Just 6 Things

Draper James Dress

Ugh, I can't find this dress online to link for you! I have been shopping for some wintery dresses for our Alaskan cruise, and stumbled across this one on Poshmark. I don't think it's right for the cruise (well maybe, I don't know exactly what I'm bringing yet and we still have some time to go.) but I loved it so much I had to buy it. It's pretty perfect for Florida winter, with boots - but I also think it'll be pretty in the spring with heels. 

Hunger Games Movie Date

Blake and I had a midweek movie date and saw the Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes! It might surprise you but I didn't read the book. I tried when it came out in 2020, but I just don't think I was in the right headspace for it. But, we really enjoyed the movie! The first movies and books came out when I was in my early twenties. I think I'm about the same age as Jennifer Lawrence, so when I watched the original movies I didn't really recognize how young the kids were that were killing each other. Watching this movie felt totally different - it was a lot more upsetting to see it at my age now. Which is obviously the point. 

I've been laughing at all the Reels on Instagram about the difference between watching the movie and reading the books. In the books, you are reading what's going on in Snow's head - but in the movie, you are just seeing a very attractive guy making these decisions and you end up rooting for him because you don't know how sick he is in the head. 

Anyway, it was a great date! We love love love going to the movies. I cannot believe how expensive it is though. I accidentally ordered these $20 nachos, hahaha. They were actually really good, so whatever. 


Now that the time has changed, we are treated to the best sunrises every morning when we take the dogs out. 

Having Company

We've been having a lot of people in and out the past few weeks. Two friends just stayed for a night each, but then we had Blake's cousin come through and stay for the whole weekend. I just love having company. It's fun to spoil our friends! Ben specifically requested that I make my hummus, and it's such a compliment for someone to love something you make that much. (I shared my recipe here on the blog in 2014!! It's sort of different every time. This time I used fresh Thyme and Oregano from my 'garden' and added red pepper flakes)

FSU Basketball

I went to a basketball game with my brother one random Monday night, and we just had the best time. The tickets are cheap as can be, and it's really fun. The jumbotron antics are such a trip. 

Doggy Sitting

My parents dog sat for my brother's dog Judd for a couple weeks, and we loved taking him on walks! We love our pugs, but we can all admit they are little couch potatoes who don't really go for long walks. (We do walk them, but it's quick and they just do their business and want to go back inside.) This day we took Judd out on the greenway for a few mile long walk and he was so happy. Had to pull a few ticks off him which was crazy, but he had a great time. We did too. 😊
