What’s Making Me Happy This Week VI

Our board game collection (and board games in general really)

First time playing Boss Monster. I’m Seducia the Sorceress of Sexiness

Between the wedding (Amazon registries for the win!) and Christmas, our board game collection has really filled out. We went from a handful of games to almost 20 different games (and a lack of storage for them!) Smallword, Ticket to Ride, and Boss Monster are probably our favorite games right now, but that’s just a fraction of our game collection now. Bullet journaling YummySushiPJs kept mentioning her bullet journal in several of her Instagram posts which got my curious. A quick Googling got me to the Bullet Journal site, and my list has pretty much been revolutionized. For me, journaling is one of those things that I love the idea of it, but when it comes to actually executing….well, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. In my head journaling requires elaborately crafted “Dearest Diary” entries, but those pretty much end up reading something like…

“Dearest Diary, Today I did the same thing I do every day. I ate pretty much the same thing I eat every day. I skipped my workout again. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get up for that early morning gym sesh.! xoxo, Stina”

My bullet journal is sort of a planner/ journal hybrid. I keep my weekly meal plans, daily schedule, and weekly work-out schedule in there, but I can also add whatever I want – random notes, stickers or other scraps, more elaborate, self-reflection style journal entries, doodles, whatever! The other day, I taped in a wrapper from a really awesome piece of super dark chocolate I ate witha  note that said, “Damn. This was good.” Honestly, if I started to take a bullet journal approach to blogging, I might actually blog with some sort of frequency! My new avatar

I updated my avatar across my various social media platforms yesterday because I just love this picture. It was one I snapped randomly while settling in to my hotel bed to read Game of Thrones so there’s nothnig special about it, but it makes me smile.

What’s Making Me Happy This Week II

Listening to the entire Rise Against discography at my desk today.

Rise Against

I don’t usually listen to music at my desk, but my team is out today and I’m feeling a bit lonely without them. Rise Against is one of my favorite bands ever, and I got to see them in concert again last month.

All things weddings!

In addition to entering the final two months of wedding planning for ourselves, we’ve been celebrating the weddings of a lot of friends this week!

Last Saturday we celebrated the wedding of my life long bestie’s younger sister up in Milwaukee. Tonight we’ve got the wedding for one of the boy’s co-workers, and tomorrow we’ve got another wedding for a couple of our very close friends.


Plus our wedding plans are moving along nicely. I’m entering the heavy crafting phase right now, and I’m super excited. I’ve finished making the bouquets for my bridesmaids, and I’m working on my own along with the corsages and boutonierres. This weekend I’m going to try my handle at candlemaking.
