I've seen this little survey make its way around the blogosphere lately and I'm always a sucker for posts that write themselves and for a way to share what's going on in my life these days.
P.S. I Still Love You
Anyway, P.S. I Still Love You is the followup book of To All The Boys I've Loved Before. I know, these titles are ridiculous, but the writer makes you fall in love with every single character. And while the titles suggest otherwise, these books are just as much about family as they are teenage crushes. It's a nice mixture of both with a lot of wit and humor thrown in. Highly suggest for a light and warm fuzzy read.

Our new custom sofa fail.
I could write a whole post about this (and I just might, you've been fairly warned), but we've had such a horrible time dealing with the furniture salesman from the place we purchased our custom sofa. When the sofa was delivered we loved it. We were so happy to finally have a place to lounge after selling our old sofa in less than 20 minutes on Craiglist. Yoga mats and picnic blankets are not great substitutes for sofas, by the way. So anyway, we loved the look, but quickly realized that they made it wrong (the measurements we gave them do not match the ones we received). We've been calling them, emailing them, and we even went to the store last weekend and we aren't getting anywhere. They refuse to let us return it. And their salesman said he'd come by tonight to take a look. We came home early to wait for him, but he never showed. Not even a phone call. We aren't sure what to do next, though I have a great Yelp essay forming in my head right now...
Cooking in my new kitchen.
Okay, so I would never have chosen those color cabinets or countertops (totally not my style), but I freaking love this kitchen. From the deep sink, fancy dishwasher, ridiculous amounts of cabinet space, deep drawers, and professional range and convection oven, I'm so in love. We recently joined Blue Apron (they didn't pay me to type that) to get in the groove of cooking here and I find myself making meals at 9pm, not out of hunger, but just because I want to use my kitchen. Oh and it has both natural light and undermount lights. Kitchen light is so important. Really, it's a dream and I wish I could invite you all over for a dinner party except we still don't have a dining room table (and will probably be -1 sofa soon, I hope).
After a really stressful May for the both of us at work (on top of moving), we decided to treat ourselves to a long weekend in Boulder. We booked a cute little B&B room on Pearl Street and don't really have much else planned but some restaurants and a hike or two. We leave on Thursday and as I told my coworkers, there's a strong possibility that we might stay there :)
