The Shark Bathroom: Part 1

So, I haven't been completely honest with you. Two years ago, I let you see our scary ugly basement, but I didn't even show you the worst part: the shark bathroom. You might remember the "artistic" previous owners decorated with spray paint and they spared no expense in the basement bathroom. I think they really let their creativity shine. I'll let the photos speak for themselves:






I. Just. Can't. Even.


So, K and I decided to get on it and make this hot mess disappear. I can't wait to show you the difference. It's spectacular. But then again, the bar is pretty low...


Also, there are no actual sharks depicted, just fish, crab, and squid. But the name has stuck since the day we moved in. So long, sharks!

On My Kindle Right Now

I have a kickass lineup on my Kindle right now and I'm struggling to keep up. I get my books from the library so if I don't plan it right, I can be on a million (ok, only 15 at a time but still) waiting lists and then all of a sudden, all the books are ready. So here's what I'm attempting to plow through right now:


Best problem ever, huh?

Three Movies You Might Have Missed.

Winter in Minnesota means hibernation. And more often than not, we enjoy cuddling by the fire, curled up watching movies. Here are three underrated movies you might have missed that are worth a watch:

My Old Pink Suitcase.


My first suitcase. To a girl with perpetual wanderlust, my first piece of luggage was the ultimate sign of freedom. It was my ticket to see the world. Have pink luggage, will travel.

It's a beast and it's pink. I can recognize it across the airport in a heartbeat. It can definitely fit a couple small baby pandas if I had to. I can tell you within a half pound how much it weighs, if it's going to be tagged heavy (which it has been, more times that I can count), or if I've got room for a souvenir or two. 

It's been my travel companion on many adventures. Italy, Jamaica, Canada, Hawaii. Minnesota to South Carolina and back. Crisscrossed the United States for the year that bag was my home away from home. Across town to my first stationary home of my own. Italy,  Canada, Hawaii, Jamaica.

It's dirty, starting to tear a bit, and a zipper catches. There are still adventures left to be had in that old bag, but for someone else next time.

I'm hanging up my travel tag on my old pink suitcase. 

xoxo,
Alex
