Michelle and Hannah are still going strong on the Whole30 and Robin is testing out the Glossier supers. See everything we’re loving in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.


Sugar Mamas/Daddies/Babies

So I’m pretty sure Refinery29 is Arrangement.com‘s new sugar baby based on all the posts clearly sponsored by them. But, even so, I’m obsessed with learning everything about sugar babies. All the articles feature people in LA or NY or SF, but I’m sure there are people all over the country trying to “spoil” people by being a sugar daddy. Have you heard about this?

Total Home Organization

Broyhill Emphasis Hutch

I don’t know if I have more energy from the Whole30 or if I’m just finally getting annoyed at the piles of trash I have stacked up in every room in my house, but I can’t stop organizing. I started in the bathroom and threw out a huge bag of old expired potions and products and am still struggling with how to organize everything on my very deep shelves. Next, I moved to the office and got a new (way old) Broyhill Emphasis hutch to store all my craft supplies. If you follow along on instastories you saw me try to organize that last night. Let me know if you have any organizing tips! Hannah suggested a tiered spice rack thing for my paints, so I’ll be looking into that!


White Wood Siding Houses

After a recent trip to Nashville, I have been obsessing about all the cute white wood siding houses I saw there. Never thought of myself as a white, farmhouse-esque person but I’m totally in. Can’t get enough.

Glossier Supers

You know we love Glossier around here. After great success with Super Bounce I took the plunge and got the whole set. Jury is still out the others—I have to use them for more than a couple days—but so far also loving the Super Pure. Full review to come soon!


Whole30 Update

This week started strong for the Whole30. I did some meal prepping and was thinking that maybe I was doing it wrong because this was all so…easy? I came down with a cold later in the week and that tipped me back towards struggling because all I wanted was carbs. But, I stayed strong and lived to see another day. Good news though: I found a bomb ass pad thai recipe that I will continue to make post-Whole30. Check it out here (it calls for spaghetti squash but I used sweet potato noodles). I made it for my dad and Zac, neither of whom are doing Whole30, and both of them loved it.

Manhunt: Unabomber

The aforementioned cold kept me home from work one day this week and I spent most of the day powering through the Discovery series Manhunt: Unabomber on Netflix. It was pretty interesting but I had some questions. First, they make it seem like literally one dude solved the entire case which can’t possibly be true. Second, it was SUPER sympathetic towards Ted Kaczynski. I always find it interesting to see what happened in a murderer’s life to make them the way that they are, and this series definitely shed some light on the traumatic incidents in his past. But the more I watched the more I felt bad for him when he had needlessly mauled and murdered a bunch of people. I don’t know, I was torn. If you like true crime, give it a watch and see for yourself.
