Robin and I got back from Greece last week and I have been obsessed with keeping the breezy Grecian vibes going since then. We went to Athens, Corfu, Kefalonia, and Patras, and then stopped in a few towns on our drive back to Athens. I changed up my packing method for this trip and it was a game-changer.

Spring Project List

In At Home, DIY by Michelle KowalskiLeave a Comment

 I love working on big furniture pieces and tearing walls and ceilings apart for big impact projects but with my basement full of my porch furniture and the garage filled with melting snow and freezing temps, I haven’t had anywhere to work. Also, blankets and fires just seemed like the right choice for a couple months. Now that it is warming up a bit, I’m ready to get to work, and could use some advice from the internet if you’ve got any suggestions. Here’s my current spring project list.

This past weekend, I went down to Cincinnati to visit some friends. It also happened to be St. Patrick’s day, but that was really just a coincidence. So Saturday, we got into the typical Irish Shenanigans, Guinness all day, broken up with some delicious Gomez Turtles for some Mexican flair. Then Sunday, after a delicious breakfast at Tucker’s we made our way to East Walnut Hills’ newest attraction: Urban Stead Cheese. Ben and I have been fangirling over Urban Stead since it was announced they would be opening near his house in Walnut Hills, so this was a dream come true.

Anyone else think it was Friday on Tuesday? Maybe it’s because it feels like spring should be here by now, or maybe it’s that we’ve been looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s been a long week. Obsessing over some fun new things kept us going, though. Here’s what we’re loving in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.

I’ve been skiing three times, so obviously I need a full ski wardrobe

I survived skiing this weekend! I went skiing for the third time in my life and managed to not die, so now I get to embark on the best part of any new hobby, shopping for all the gear. For this trip, I borrowed Hannah’s ski jacket, pants, gloves, goggles, socks, clothes, literally all of it, and now that I think I want to ski again, I should buy my own jacket. Bonus, if I don’t have to borrow Hannah’s jacket, that means she can also come skiing and we CAN BE SKI-FRIENDS. Amazing. Here’s everything I’m looking at for my new ski wardrobe, please chime in in the comments with your recommendations because I’m basing this all purely on aesthetics.
