Well, it was a short week, but it sure didn’t feel like it! Reg has been tackling her move into the new place (yay!), and Christa has had a lot of exciting Connecticut Art Directors Club things going on this week and weekend. We’re just excited for a couple days off from work to tackle house projects, hang with friends and take it easy.

Btw- how was everyones Memorial Day?? This was one of the first years we both didn’t attend any sort of big bash or BBQ, but as you might have been able to catch — we’re crazy busy, so we didn’t mind!

cct // My Oma brought Curtis and I some purple basil for an apartment warming present and I’ve been searching for some fun recipes to use this unique looking herb! This Purple Basil Pesto looks damn good, especially on the bruschetta!

rkv // I’m not generally a heels girl, but I’m kind of obsessed with these

cct // This lady has got style – love her Free People profile

rkv // I’m sorry, what? Spicy chocolate-covered tortilla chips. Yep.

cct // Have you guys heard of reverse washing? It’s when you use conditioner first, and then shampoo – strange right?! This super informative article has got me very excited to give it a shot!

rkv // Some good tips on how to shop like an interior designer

The Dog Years

Everyone talks about the “college years,” the “engagement years,” and the “wedding years,” but no one mentions the “everyone buys a dog years”. I know that’s kind of an odd statement, but have you noticed that everyone is getting a dog?? It might be more noticeable for us previous dog owners, since we grew up with a dog and now we’re settling into our homes with no pup wandering around.

The thing about getting a dog though, is that as much we want one so badly, we still don’t feel responsible enough for one. Is that bad? We’re in our mid twenties now, doesn’t that mean we should automatically be responsible adults? Part of us feels like we are, but then it’s like…welllll, I kind of want to go away this weekend, or suuure, I’ll go and get drinks right after work — but having a dog makes all of that complicated.

I guess part of being a responsible adult involves being responsible enough to know that right now, we can’t handle a dog. We should probably be able to keep house plants alive for at least a year before even considering it, amiright? Or maybe be able to comfortably pay a cable bill without cringing? Just a thought.

So for now, we’ll just enjoy our friend’s dogs (and those we find on pinterest)…
