lately in monsterland

One of the things I love most about blogging is its ability to make memories more concrete. I keep paper journals to remember things and write out my feelings, but I've never been much of a scrapbooker. My blog is at least 1 part digital scrapbook and I'm excited to look back on this years down the road (even if I end up finding some of it cringe-worthy!). I hate when I have long gaps with no posts, but living life gets in the way of recording life sometimes. Luckily, my cell phone knows what I've been up to!

colorful dinner at work // doin' the messy bun thang // Phoenix anticipating her ball being thrown // obligatory mall bathroom mirror picture

Hans bottled his first home brew! // cuddle time // taped wrists for CrossFit // my handsome man on Marta returning home from some ATL event or other

we grew our own delicious mushrooms thanks to Back to the Roots. These were so good!

Of course I'm the most forgetful person when it comes to photographing things I'd like to remember, and this is all I have to show for a handful of eventful weeks. ♦Hans and I visited ICE Atlanta this weekend, a handmade craft show, which was full of great vendors. I met Mary from Mary Rebecca, who was great, and Hans bought me a real pretty bow from her (again, picture fail). ♦I've started doing CrossFit and I am completely addicted. I've always like to work out hard, but nothing I've done previously can touch CrossFit. I already feel stronger than I ever have. ♦We recently won a war against a flea infestation in our house (thanks, Cold Weather, I hate you)--fingers crossed this really was the last battle. ♦School is continuing to kick my ass but I have a blissful few days off to celebrate that most murderous of holidays, Thanksgiving. I'm looking forward to a vegan feast with my loved ones. ♦And the most important thing going on in our little house lately? Skyrim We have been playing this game for extremely inappropriate lengths of time, nerd-flags flying high.


  1. I'm getting that mushroom grow kit for my dad! It's good to see such a healthy harvest XD

  2. Yes! It's a great gift, and the mushrooms were excellent.

  3. Ooooh, your bathroom mall mirror shot is gorgeous. You look so stinkin' cute!!! And Jen and I brew our own beer as well - do y'all have a Mr. Beer Kit or do you do somethin' different???

    Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

  4. Thank you! He doesn't have a kit, he just bought all the equipment and ingredients separately and followed the instructions from The Joy of Home Brewing. It's a pretty fun process, huh?

  5. growing your own mushrooms? wow... I'd love to do that! It sounds so rewarding. I just found your blog and now Im your newest follower. I hope we can be friends!! XOXO

    love, polly
