I ordered this little bag from Mellow World a week or two ago, and I was so darn thankful I brought it with me to Duluth. It’s the perfect sized handbag for just the necessities, which also forced me to figure out just what my “handbag necessities” actually are. Turns out I don’t need a million gum wrappers, old candy bars, and a random pair of winter gloves in my summer handbag! Just my wallet and some chapstick! That right there, friends, is what we in the in business like to call discovery. Cue a little cartoon light bulb flashing above my head.
Plus, this bag is just too darn cute not to pack for a weekend in Duluth. So there’s that.
I realize this is old news already, but Germany won the World Cup! I was pretty darned proud of my German roots. Even wore my Germany football warm-up around the house the next day. That final game was so fun to watch. Darrin was pretty proud of his World Cup bracket results. He finished in the 99.5 percentile in the ESPN Bracket Predictor, which made him want to print, frame, and display his winning bracket somewhere in our home. I mean, I was impressed! He had faith in a lot of underdog teams! But I wasn’t impressed enough to agree to the whole “let’s hang it on the wall!” idea….but we’ll see. I’ve come home to plenty of surprises…new Batman comic books spread out on the coffee table, random medical devices taken apart on the kitchen counter, and a ginormous white board that is currently hanging in our office. I’m sure Darrin’s bracket will somehow find a place right next to it. 😉
I hope you’re having a good week! Darrin and I are celebrating a dear friend’s birthday over at our place tonight. She’s got some strict health restrictions, so we went to the grocery store last night on a mission to create an entirely organic, gluten-free meal. And we were SO successful! We even high-fived on our way out of the store. I’ve got a feeling that our meal tonight may even be Instagram-worthy. Talk about an awesome Wednesday night!
