With July’s end comes the end of our summer hanging in Austin with no travel plans. I feel like we made the most of it this month, with trips to the movie theater, a 65 degree pool, and margaritas inside when it was just too hot to be outside. We’re really looking forward to some fun trips this month, but summer in Austin has been pretty sweet.  Making: My fourth trip to Ikea since we’ve moved. It’s a blessing and a curse to have one twenty miles away.  Cooking: My sister sent me this recipe for honey sriracha turkey meatballs…

June was pretty wonderful! We had mostly the whole month to hang out in town, settle into the new home/neighborhood, and host our first weekend guest (my sister was the lucky guinea pig). We’ve been able to make lots house progress, even though the changes have been pretty simple – like moving furniture around, getting art hung, or switching out grey blackout curtains for white cotton ones. Blackout curtains and I don’t get along. I don’t know how yall do it. Every morning my body was like WHAT GD TIME IS IT GO BACK TO SLEEP YOU FOOL.  Making: We…

Well, May was amazing. A trip to Colorado, turning thirty, moving, and a trip to California…it was all SO fun, minus moving obviously, but I am also so excited to be home for a hot minute. Time to hang some art, work on the patio, host some guests, and cook lots of meals on our gas (!!) stove.  Making: Nothing for May…except a whole lotta Amazon purchases to help organize the new house. Cooking: Busy months mean two things: very little cooking, and when I do cook, it’s staples that are easy. For May, that meant these standbys: chicken thighs with a red wine…

April 2017. The last Currently post before I turn thirty. Ajkdfhgkjhjdf.  I don’t know, though, guys. If thirty is anything like 29 years, 11 months, and 24 days (and I’m told it’s actually extremely similar), I think I’ll be okay. This month in preparation for the new decade, I faced a couple fears of mine – flying by myself and giving up sugar, grains, dairy, and alcohol on Whole30. Turns out it IS possible for me to do both of those things (although on day 11 of the Whole30 I tripped and fell into an order of Torchy’s chips and…

Very little to complain about this month. High points: our Marfa trip, getting to visit with an old friend of mine in town for SXSW, heading to a free Garth Brooks concert put on by the city for locals only, seeing one of Matt’s old friends get married, and in general enjoying some crazy good weather before the heat and mosquitoes arrive. Also, I bought a disco ball. Probably should have put that one first.  Making: Gonna cheat and say I’m making a blog post.  Cooking: Warm weather means shrimp tacos and turkey burgers with sweet potato fries. No complaining here!…
