Currently [v6]

Currently I am:

+ excited about heading up to the lake tomorrow morning for some good old 4th of July fun. J and I have been going there for so many summers now and we have great memories of days spent in the sun. 

+ amazed that this will be J and my 7th Fourth of July together! Holy cow where has the time gone! Our dating anniversary was on Monday so this holiday is always special to me because of that. 
+ prepping our food for the weekend away and attempting to not have to use the grill while we're there. I tried a new pasta salad recipe that I modified with some protein to make it a meal and I can't wait to enjoy many a few adult beverages as well. 
+ shocked at the size of these marshmallows from Walmart. They are seriously enormous, like the size of 3 regular marshmallows. Hello, s'mores!
+ loving our new canvas prints from Costco in our family room. The quality is absolutely stunning, they are so well made and they give such an impact on our large wall. (we went with the 16x48" size) They were definitely more expensive than just doing prints in a frame but I think they are so worth it. Plus it's an awesome way to relive our honeymoon every once in a while by looking up at these canvases.
+ obsessed with French Press coffee after reading this post about how to make iced coffee with it. While we were waiting for our stuff (and more specifically my espresso maker) from the moving company I got a cheap french press and have been loving using it ever since. Plus it's a joy to have coffee already made when I wake up instead of having to fuss with the machine each morning.

+ thrilled with how our biggest home improvement project to date went over the past weekend! Our entire downstairs is getting new flooring and the first step was the hardwood. I promise to do a more detailed post with before and afters once the entire project is finished (carpet is going in next week) but here's a sneak peak anyways. This flooring is just gorgeous! 
Hope everyone has a fun, warm and safe 4th of July weekend!
