Life Lately

It has been a crazy month! Thought I’d give a quick update on the happenings…

We went to see Florence + the Machine at the Fox Theatre in downtown Detroit on July 31.  She’s been on my list of people to see live for years and she was AMAZING!

We went downtown to go to Eastern Market again with our friend Krysten; little did we know that it was closed on Sundays!  Instead, we wandered around the city and had lunch at Campus Martius.

My aunt texted me a photo of a girl she saw on TV at the Tiger’s game asking if it was me.  The resemblance is uncanny.  I think she may have found my Doppelganger!

My sister and I went out for a morning filled with sparkling ciders, sugar scrubs, and mani/pedi’s thanks to a Travelzoo local deal.  We weren’t super pleased with the place, and wouldn’t return, but it was nice for the half off price and we got some quality girl time!

I’ve been eating a vegetarian diet for about a month now.  So far, so good. {I did cheat once for sushi, though!}  I plan to stick with it for a while longer.  I can’t say that I’ll never eat meat again, but I at least want to try to minimize my meat consumption for the long term.  For example, who knew that Morningstar sausage patties are just as delicious as regular sausage?  And who knew that my favorite Thai food dish, red curry from Khom Fai, would taste just as good with tofu as with chicken.  Here was a delicious salad I threw together… chickpeas, cucumber, tomato, and feta!

I dropped in at IKEA to get a replacement frame for one that Eddie broke, and fell in love with these pillows.  The $10 covers are a heavy kilim-like weight and are removable for washing.  The $6 pillow inserts feel high quality like down feathers.  I’m loving them!

My cousin married his sweetheart this past weekend and we had a nice time celebrating with friends and family.

Hope you’ve been enjoying the end of summer as well!
