Weekly Bits - 4 of 52

Jan 29, 2016

1. Embrace MO

I love Visit MO's List of 16 things to do in MO in 2016. #4 Appreciate Craftsmanship -- craft beer! So many great options in MO and I'm trying to hit 6 new (to me) ones this year! My first that I checked off was Standard Brewing Company.

2. KEEP Party

I received this awesome bracelet from KEEP Collective (Thanks, Jenn!). Joy is my 2016 word of the year, so this is a great daily reminder. Have you heard of KEEP? If so, what is your favorite piece? I'm going to get a Gratitude key too since it was my 2015 word- I love Jenn's! See my full post here!

3. Library Haul
Never fails, all of my library requests come in at once. After I picked these up I received notification that Big Magic was in too. See what I have currently >>

4. Three Sheep Shack booth

My mom & I had a blast at a fundraising event last Friday in my hometown. We were one of the vendors and got to play Bunco for the first time too. Such fun!

5. Swaggable
I received these sour gummies this week to review. Loved them. They are hard like gummy bears, so don't expect them to be as soft as say, sour patch kids, but the flavor was nice! Sign up here if you'd like to review products for free too.

Thought of the week ::
When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Me : The first thing that comes to mind is buying a house (this past Summer). There have been multiple mini things since then, like trying a new brewery or brunch. I'm a new thing lover. 

You : ......let's hear it!


  1. I went to Vegas for the first time a couple weeks ago! Loved it! I'll be going to Nashville for the first time in a few weeks too!

    1. Oh, that's a great answer! Travel firsts are the best!
