Friday Finds: Where have I been?

Happy Friday! I know it has been a while since I have posted, but if you saw here, you will know that we just moved into our new house! So between packing last week and unpacking this week, things have been crazy! Hopefully things will get back to normal very soon.

Below are some of my favorite finds with week!

Fall 2016 Bucket List


One of my  favorites parts about my birthday is that is it always the Autumnal Equinox aka the first day of fall! I am unabashedly a  very basic girl. I love leggings, sweater weather, PSLs, and instagraming leaves. Fall is literally the best season! To start my fall off right, I have created a Fall Bucket List. I'm hoping to get everything crossed off by December 21st, the last day of fall!

Friday Finds: So we bought a house…

Happy Friday everyone!

In case you hadn't seen my latest Instagram, we have officially closed on our new house this morning! I am so excited to finally have this process completed and can't wait to move in! So now our apartment is completely filled with brown boxes and packing tape. And while I can find packing to be stressful, it is so worth it to move into our gorgeous new house! More pictures to come soon!

Below are some of my favorite finds this week!

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
