Weekend Links / / Labor Day


Last week I mentioned the unromantic stage of moving was in full swing in the Short household. I’m happy to report that signing up for car insurance, new bank accounts, and our moving truck have been crossed off! We downsized prior to moving in with my parents for the summer, but we are still finding ways to eliminate more and it feels really good.

How are you spending this three-day weekend? Unlike me, I hope you actually have all of the days off (#retail). My brother, SIL, and little munchkins are visiting, so in-between work we’ll be soaking in a lot of family time.

A few of my favorite reads from this past week.

1 | Hannah’s weekly Wednesday walks around Paris have me itching to go back (and re-look at our vacation photos)! In my opinion, Paris is best viewed on foot.

2 | When we got back from NYC I decided to eliminate dairy again and actually it’s been going really well. I discovered that I like my iced americanos black. Sometimes I don’t recognize myself 😉 Tracy’s avocado & chocolate pudding sounds so delicious and a recipe I’ll keep on rotation.

3 | My hair is finally getting long enough for fun styles. I’ve been pinning a lot of braid and twists, but these three easy ponytails are a great alternative.

4| My So-Called Life premiered 20 years ago! Please tell me you’ve watched that show? It’s widely regarded as one of the best dramas to portray adolescence. Included in the 40 most important objects of MSCL are Rayanne’s crazy earrings, Jordan’s red car, and “Brian’s bike of perpetual loneliness.” Almost 15 years ago, I tried purchasing the DVD box set online not knowing I was purchasing a scam. This was pre-amazon/everyone-buys-all-the-things-online. Thankfully, the show was released officially.

5 | I’ve been toying with the idea of purchasing a sewing machine and taking lessons for a while now. Abbe
y’s easy kimono tutorial utilizing a scarf seems like a good, simple start.

  1. Paris is definitely on the explore more list for when I move back to Europe!
    I’m currently reading a book called Fat Chance, which is about the obesity pandemic in America and sugar. Not the happiest of books, but so interesting!

    1. That book sounds really interesting. To be honest, Paris was intimidating, but towards the end of the week we finally started getting the hang of the layout. It’s a beautiful city though!

  2. oooh! I am loving your list- especially the Wednesday walks around Paris. Paris is on my bucket list of places to visit so until I go, I’ll just live vicariously through all of you 😉 And yes- I miss My So-Called Life so much – why is it not on Netflix?!

  3. Love your list! I’m dying to get to Paris…sounds so dreamy and romantic!! Probably not going anytime soon with babe #2 coming soon, but someday!! I can’t believe My So Called Life was 20 years ago!! Like I can’t believe I’m old enough to say things like “remember 20 years ago when…”
