Friday Finds: Do You Hike?

Happy Friday everyone! You may remember from my Summer Bucket List, one item was "hiking in Alaska". I've mentioned it before, but Steve and I are going to Alaska to visit some friends next week! We are so excited and have some big activities planned during the trip, including a hike. Steve decided this was a good excuse for me to finally buy a pair of hiking boots. Once I got them, I was informed by Steve that I had to break-in my hiking shoes. To accomplish this, we're going hiking this weekend.

My husband grew up hiking and camping with his family. My family did not. But because it is so important to him, we have gone on hikes together in the past. I'll admit, I don't hate it! Although, according to Steve, now that I own the boots, I am now an official hiker! :0

Below are some of my favorite finds this week!


Summer music hits, all in one place.

The Alphabet according to brands.

#BringBackNashville worked!

Wherever these pools are, I want to move there.

My new favorite Youtube Channel.

This app is funny and dangerous at the same time!

What did your families do? Did you grow up visiting the great outdoors like my husband or stay inside like me? I'd love to know!

Friday Finds: It is HOT HOT HOT

Happy Friday Everyone!

It has been boiling outside here for the last few days. I'm talking in the 100s! Because of that, I have been avoiding leaving the comfort of my home (and air conditioning). On the plus side, I've been catching up on Game of Thrones. Steve has been pushing me to catch up so we can watch Sunday's new episode together. I think it's manageable because I'm almost there (hold the door!)

Here are some of my favorite finds of the week!


A color guide to brands.

Famous logos, then and now.

The science behind Festival-Goers.

I fully plan on building my dream closet one day.

Because we needed an excuse to love Hamilton even more.

For when you want to end your email with a (un)inspired quote.

Have you been catching up on any shows (or podcasts) lately? Everyone always likes a good recommendation. Have a happy weekend!

Saturdaze: May Update

May has been filled with the idea of "going home". Moving to our new home, visiting my in-laws, and visiting my parents. This resulted in living out of suitcases and boxes for a good portion of the month. Thankfully, and finally, we are down to two last boxes in the apartment. But despite moving and traveling, I've managed to start watching two new shows, and catch up on my favorite podcasts!

Watching: Veep Season 5, Real Housewives of Dallas, Game of Thrones (started watching for the first time!), and Cheers

Drinking: Filtered water 

Wearing: Jogger Pants - I've become obsessed! I want this pair next!

Listening: The soundtrack to Hamilton and my two favorite Podcasts: Gilmore Guys and Best of Friends.

Reading: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Feeling: Busy. As mentioned above, May has been quick a chaotic month! We moved, attended my brother-in-law's college graduation and spent a week with my parents.

Traveled: Ames, IA for the graduation, Chicago to see my parents, and a brief stop in St. Louis to see one of my best friends and her fiancé.

Saw: Two Kansas City Royals Games and Captain America: Civil War

News: If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know this; one of my dearest friends asked be to be one of her bridesmaids! Her wedding will in April and I am so excited for her and her fiancé!

I'd like to say June will be calmer, but it won't! We've got a few things going on for this month. Including a trip to Alaska! But more on that later… :)

As always, thank you for reading, Helen
