Life As I Know It

Mid-Week Update

Lots of fun things are happening in our new little Ohio lifestyle, and I just haven’t had a chance to sit down these last few days and share with you. So for curious minds, here’s what we’ve been up to…

1. Organizing Galore. We spent a large amount of the weekend finding a home for about 95% of our things that were still scattered about the house from our move. The office is starting to look like an office. We even bought a huge dry erase board and a desk chair! Ah, the things that excite us.

2. Cooking up a storm. What can I say, we love food. I love to bake. Jonathan loves to grill. We both love to cook and try new things. So over the weekend, Jonathan tried the “smoker” part of his grill for the first time. It was so cool to see the woodchips go up in smoke, and it added such great flavor to our chicken.  I think next on his agenda will be to smoke a whole chicken! #dreambig

I made these banana protein muffins, and they were kind of a fail. They deflated quickly and were a little…dense. I blame my baking powder and soda, which are super old. I also probably overbaked a little. Didn’t even photograph the fail…sorry!

But in OTHER unphotographed food news, we made these Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls, and they were DELICIOUS. Unlike the muffins, these babies were gone so fast I didn’t even have time to take photos. But they sort of looked like this:

3. Crafting. I got an order on Etsy! I say this with true excitement because it was from a STRANGER, and not my mom. 🙂 I made this sweet little burlap bunting for someone’s daughter in Texas. Go check out Sew Sweet by Meghan for more…

4. Traveling. I’m back on the road again, though not as often as my old job. This week, I went to Houston and met with some really impressive Ohio State alumni. I also got to tour the Houston Ballet Center for Dance, which has a really freaking awesome donor wall, for all you development dorks like me…

5. Up next…


We are pretty pumped about this.

Also, Ohio State kicks off their season on Saturday. In honor of this, I prepared a little treat for my coworkers. Go Bucks!
