life lately !

1. Weekend Buys

I went to Whole Foods while husband was chained to the kitchen table constructing his music video for his 7th graders. He was stressed….and stressed me out. So I decided to make a homemade pizza and have cake ready at his disposal…

2. The best pizza ever

pizza sauce, basil, mozzarella, prosciutto, and wheat dough. It could all be so simple?

3. ADIDAS

I was gifted these bomb shoes and shoe laces!! So now I don’t need to buy any running shoes this year!!IMG_5417IMG_5421

side-note- these run small. order a size up!

4. Daisy’s training

We met with a trainer to speak with us about Daisy’s leash behavior. She pulls constantly and barks at everyone! A lady came out to show us some strategies on our walks and gave us this rather restrictive British no slip collar that makes it very uncomfortable for her if she pulls. Two weeks later and she’s better..but nowhere near where we want her to be. Chihuahuas have strong personalities and she’s a girl. And stubborn. So this will take some time. But she’s fiercely loyal to us. See her in this picture? A mess. She loves her pa lol

African American Museum- take 1

I traveled to D.C. for a work conference and visited the African American Museum. I truly feel like these photos speak for themselves, and overall this was an amazing and overwhelming experience. I started crying walking through the Emmett Till exhibit.

A museum that everyone needs to experience. EVERYONE.

More photos from our recent time in Amsterdam. We visited the Rijksmuseum– which is hands down the most striking museum I’ve been to.

Some of the artwork was taken/almost destroyed due to Catholicism being outlawed in the 1580s.
