Genuinely Cool Stuff 5.3.16

Hello everyone! I truly hope that your week has been lovely so far and that you are enjoying some sunshine and margaritas on this fine taco Tuesday. This week is going to be a really great week for A and I since our seven year dating anniversary is tomorrow so we both decided to take the day off of work! It might seem silly to celebrate a dating anniversary and a wedding anniversary, but I feel so lame saying “we’ve been together for two years” when we celebrate marriage, versus getting to say we have been together seven years when we talk about dating! Also, it is so crazy to think that we have been together this long and it somehow always seems to get even better, no matter how impossible that seems. Tomorrow we are going to have a lovely picnic and then enjoy some daytime brews at Land Grant Brewing and some super yummy fries from their food truck palooza. In the meantime, I pulled together my favorite useful links from across the internet these past two weeks! I hope that you find them useful, I know I am totally obsessed with: a recipe for delicious and healthy on-the-go chocolate breakfast cookies, a guide to how to pick the right antique rug for you and how to make a lovely updated clipboard!

Enjoy xx!

    Those chocolate breakfast cookies look bomb <3 Also, I TOTALLY get what you're saying about the dating anniversary! Rob and I aren't married yet, but when we do finally tie the know, it's going to be so weird saying "it's our one year anniversary!" because we've been dating since we were 14! It'll be 13 years this September and it would just feel wrong to discount that time 😉
