Oh, Snap!

Stop Worrying: Well, our living room is currently swamped with boxes from floor to ceiling and we have yet to even put our bed together. Rooms are still left unpainted and I can't find half of what I need. What can you do, chickadees? It is what it is. As much as I hate that phrase, it's true.  My Type-A-ness is slowly dying inside every time I turn the corner and see our house in shambles. Typical little Miss Jenna over here wanting things to be perfect right away. There are just not enough hours in the day to juggle all of the things that need accomplished. Of course my honeybee is always there to assure me that it will all be finished perfectly but that it just takes time.  Time takes time, you know [cue Ben Fold's here]. Until then, you can find us sleeping on the pull out couch like a college kid. Glamorous, isn't it?

Yummy Food + Pretty Design: Right before we skipped town, my honeybee and I stopped for juice and a quick lunch at Alchemy in German Village. If you are a local reader, do yourselves a favor and hop over to try this lovely place out! The design of this small space transported me out to California and I was instantly in love. All of the juices that I tried were wonderful [The Cacao Cashew Mylk was a special treat!]. The food was not only healthy, but absolutely delicious! We were so sad that this place opened as we were on our way out of the neighborhood because we would have definitely been regulars at this hot spot. I am sure we will make our way there again soon. It's not every day that you find a place this good. Have any of you ladies or gents tried it out yet? If you are interested in exploring the menu, you can find it here. 

Unplug + Recharge: If you hadn't noticed, last week I unplugged from the social media world. Life was a little overwhelming so I took the time to unplug and recharge. I have to be honest gal pals, it was a little difficult to do at first. Lucky for me, I am terrible at charging my phone so once my phone died, I pretty much lost connection to the outside world. I sure did miss y'all but it was also good for the soul to just unplug and live life for a while. I was unapologetically me. Over caffeinated and sleep deprived, but content with my life. I read somewhere recently that, "We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too.". Isn't that the truth, chickadees? 

Pure Barre Challenge: I think I had mentioned to y'all a little while back that I was taking the Pure Barre challenge this month. Thirty classes in thirty days. With how crazy our life has been these last couple of weeks, I didn't think that I was going to get very far in the challenge, but I think I doubted myself! It's amazing what you can do when you set your mind to it! As of today, I have made it to every single class! 21 classes in 21 days! Yippy skippy! Who says you don't have time in your day for a least an hour of exercise? I somehow managed to squeeze one hour in every day on top of working three jobs, packing, moving, and unpacking a brand new house. Keep your fingers and toesies crossed for me that I am able to finish strong. Next Wednesday will be my 500th class. Gotta keep the eye on the prize, guys and gals! 

Sweater Season: It sure does feel like fall here in good 'ol Ohio.  It's about time that I come to terms with the idea of unpacking my sweaters for layering weather.  My cozy cable knit sweater, puffer vest,  and loafers have all been repeat on the weekends. Perfect for cozy days when my honeybee and I are on the go. Beep! Beep!

Let's Keep It Together: That's what I keep telling myself as we unpack our boxes. Time to decorate and boxes to break down. I absolutely cannot wait to decorate this love nest of ours. We have ordered a couple large pieces that I am absolutely smitten with but I may even be more excited for the details. 

That's what's been happening in this world of mine these days! What about you, chickadees? 


  1. Wow, 21 classes in 21 days? That's awesome! I just started going to barre and am in love! But I'm really out of shape and can only take one class every few days because I'm horribly sore afterwards. :P

    2. Thanks, Cara-Mia! Isn't barre the best? You can do it! It takes a little to get used to but don't worry- you got this! :)
