Things I Love Thursday

Here's this week's list of all things wonderful! 


1. NAPS! I was never a nap person growing up. I could never make myself do it. Now, I can conk out in no time! Laying on our beyond-comfortable couch can get the best of me and I love when I am able to sneak in a little hour or so to snooze away. 



2. ROADTRIPS! (Wilmington, NC & Asheville, NC) If there is one thing I have learned from our little trip to Louisville (and to Gatlinburg for Valentine's Day), it is that I enjoy being in the car with Mike. We get along great, we love the same music. He drives and I read. There are always epic Fadiddle battles or Punch Bug/Cruiser Bruiser. We genuinely have a good time. That is why I'm looking forward to our epic 5+ day adventure this weekend/next week! We're off to North Carolina! On our itinerary: Asheville and Wilmington! Neither of us have been either one so we're hoping we love them. We've heard great things about them both and ultimately we're looking for a sweet little town to call home in a year or so! Preferably one that will be a great home to our little shop! My question for y'all: Have you ever been to either one? What are some must see/do things there?! 



3. RAISING HOPE! We weren't sure if we were going to enjoy the show or not, but we love it! It comes on every Tuesday right after Glee and it's highly recommended from us! Watch it if you don't! You can't help but fall in love with the family. They're poor and a bit white-trashy (I say that lightly, as they're really not, but it's what they're trying to convey), but they're happy and it's a true testament to life is what you make it... not what you have. It's funny how prominent this type of family is in America, but the spirit that they show through the show is just great! It's so darn funny!



4. ILLUSTRATING! This is a little downloadable desktop calendar for the month of October that I illustrated for a current project I'm working on! The project is a social media campaign for a non-profit humane society organization that I made up. It has legs to be something really incredible so I hope I can showcase that through my designs! (If anyone wants to download the actual calendar, let me know and I'll host it for you!)



5. SELLING MOST OF MY OWL COLLECTION! That's right! All of this is going! Plus more! Hopefully I'll be picking up a few more boxes from my parents' house tomorrow so be on the look-out if you're in the market for a whole heck of a lot of owl goodies! 

What are YOU loving this week?!

  7. You must must MUST eat at Flaming Amy's in Wilmington. Delicious burritos, and very vegetarian/vegan friendly. If you decide to stop through Raleigh on the way to Wilmington, let me know!

  14. Ha, you know what's weird?! I was taking a break from my Dawson's Creek marathon (sad, I know, but I love that show!) and I went to your blog and saw the picture of Wilmington (where it was filmed), and Dawson and Joey were walking in that exact location! Ah, It's the little things in life when it comes to me, haha.

    xx,
    Penelope!

  15. Asheville is THE best! I go on a little road trip at least once a month because I can't get enough! It would be THE perfect place to set up your shop!

    much love,

  17. looking at the picture of Raising Hope makes me want to watch The Goonies just because the "grandma" was in it and it made me think of her in those huge glasses and braces.

  18. You will fall in love with asheville. We spend all our free time there. Great food, music, and lots of things to see and do. Just walking around is a lot of fun. Tons of vegan and vegetarian restaurants. It is a hippie mecca though.

  19. you've got quite a collection!
    Also I am loving Raising Hope too! That grandma cracks me up!

  20. Oh my, your owl collection is sort of amazing. Though I was just saying last night that I should chill on accumulating any more owls (a life long obsession).....sigh. Let us know how/when you're selling them!

  21. Asheville is so much fun. Of course you should visit the Biltmore Estate if you have a chance. Also, on Friday nights there is a drum circle downtown that is a lot of fun. You will see some characters there.

  22. my friend is going to DIE when i show her those owl things...or maybe i'll keep it secret and get her some for christmas instead :D

  23. I'm always really awed by your designs/illustrations, even if they're just little things for mixtape monday or a school project. i feel like you have an eye for it to the point where even if you weren't gonna "use" your degree for a specific design job, you'd never be able to escape your natural talent for making things look good. anywho, you should show it off more! (i know everyone tells you that, haha)

    oh, and have fun on your road trip!!!

  24. Hi, I check out your blog from time to time and I just have to say you're so adorable. But about your road trip, I LOVE ASHEVILLE SO MUCH. You really have to eat at mayfel's and tupelo honey while you are there. soooo delicious! Biltmore is beautiful. And also, very interested in some of your owls!!
