Weekly Highlights

It feels like it's been taking me quite awhile to get out of the funk I've been in for the past month or so. When life gets hard and complicated it can take time to feel normal again. I just haven't really felt like myself lately, but this week has been really good. The best one I've had in awhile, in fact. Nothing out of this world or whatever- but just feeling happy and loved and content was a nice change of pace so I thought I'd share a few highlights of this past week with you all:

-- Getting dinner with some friends and eating out on the patio. I tried Firehouse Grill for the first time and I highly recommend it Cincinnati-area people. My food was delicious and everyone else's food looked great too so I need to go back and try more things! Their outdoor patio is huuuge and would make a great date-night spot all summer long.

-- Officially being halfway done with crutches. It's been a looooong 3 weeks, but knowing I'm halfway done -as long as I get good reports from the doctor- feels good. I am hopeful that a day without hip pain is coming soon.

-- Realizing vacation is almost here! We're headed to Hilton Head Island in a few weeks and I cannot wait to be back. It snuck up on me since we've had it planned for quite some time, but I'm excited now that it's right around the corner. My mom posted this photo on her Facebook page yesterday (because yes, she participates in every #TBT ;)) I was just 4 and it was our first family vacation to HHI.

-- Finalizing details for my 10-year class reunion. I've mentioned that I'm planning that whole shebang and it's been interesting, that's for sure. A few months ago I was stressing about it but everything is coming together nicely and I think I'm looking forward to it now. I go back and forth between being excited to see people from high school and being terrified of how they night will go. I will definitely be reporting back at the end of June ;)

-- FINALLY having a solution for all our blender bottles/water bottles. I can't stand the clutter that water bottles always make-- Do they go in a drawer? Do they go in a cabinet? Water bottles are one things I can't really get rid of, Jared and I use them constantly, everywhere. So let me introduce you to Zero G Storage, because if you love organization like I do, you need one of these bad boys. At least one!

They offer 2 different products which you can find on Amazon HERE and HERE. Plus- there are different sizes so you can store just about any "gear" you want with them. In a smaller house with an even smaller kitchen, Zero G has seriously helped us maximize space. Getting clutter off the counters or ground is a win-win-win for me! You can get 15% now through June 30th if you use promo code LOVEFUN1 on those links above. 


In addition to that Paul from Zero-G is very kindly offering one of his products to one of my readers.

  2. I clicked the link thinking "yeah, it's cool, but probably expensive" but I was happily surprised! Maybe if I get one I can convince Jarrod to not leave his blender bottles in the drainer ALL THE TIME, haha! Also, I love that TBT picture, those sunglasses are the bomb.

  4. Those storage items are genius! We have a total of 4 cupboards in our tiny kitchen and about 100 water bottles and coffee mugs :) My 10 year reunion is this year, too! I can't believe it!

  5. YAY for patio weather! It's so good to see that the rest of the country is warming up, finally!!
    Yay for being half way through the crutches stage.
    YAY for vacation... hope the time flies until you can escape!
    How many sentences can I start with yay?! Ha ha!
    I can't believe you're planning your 10 year reunion! I would think that would be SO stressful!!
    I need this storage thing! We have a million blender bottles and they drive me CRAZY in the cupboards. So cluttered and messy (although half of them are being used each day. I still hate it!)

  9. Do those storage things only work for water bottles? I need some for that but also need something to store foil, plastic wrap etc on my pantry door.

  11. Ahhh, I totally need that storage system for our slew of water bottles - going to check out the links now!

    I didn't know you were planning the whole class reunion... dang girl, that's a lot of work! My class has never even had a reunion - crazy!

  12. Oh wow you're taking on all of the planning for your reunion? That's insane and awesome at the same time! I'm sure everything will come out fabulous :)

    Yay for being almost done with crutches and for vacay! I haven't been to HHI in years, so beautiful there. And that water bottle storage is genius!

    Happy Friday <3

  17. That storage thing is amazing!!! My water bottles constant fall out at me from the cabinet and they take up so much space!! I hope you have a great weekend!!

  18. Only 3 weeks of crutches left - you got this!!! I love that TBT :) My dad participates in it sometimes and it's funny to see which pictures he posts! I'm glad you had a good week!!! I hope this weekend is even better :)

  19. I loved patio sitting with you and am glad it played a role in making your week better!!! Hoping you have the best time in HH and please find those sunglasses that 4 year old you wore and bust them out on the beach!! Haha!

  21. I seriously love that throwback picture. I can't believe I've never been to Hilton Head! Everyone loves it, so I'll have to add it to my list and live vicariously through your pictures. You'll be off crutches so soon! This is bizarre, but I can't wait to hear about your reunion. Ours is next summer and I'm in charge of planning it, so I'm anxious to see how it goes for you! I'm still really good friends with a lot of people from high school, but it'll be so strange to see other people!
