Weekend things

How has your weekend been? Utah has a state holiday called “Pioneer Day” this weekend which means we get an extra day off work! Hallelujah. Except that Utah people really love their fireworks, which let me tell you, reaches several levels above annoying when it’s almost midnight and they’re still going strong. Trying not to be that person who calls the cops but HEY, SOMEBODY’S GOTTA DO IT.

We spent our Saturday in the Uintas National Forest and found the perfect place to climb in the shade. Afterwards, we came home and I played Minecraft for too many hours. It’s not a complete waste of time if you’re also listening to an audiobook while playing, amiright?

Here’s what caught my eye on the web this week…. does anyone even call it the web anymore? Maybe I’ll start calling it the “internet webs” like the Chewbacca lady.


I’d love to one day have a garden where we can start to grow our own food. Even more so after reading this, because apparently everything we love to eat is a scam.


This post is everything. Donald Trump’s nomination is the first time American politics has left me truly afraid.


Dude. Food art is my favorite kind of art. Dying over these cheese platters!


This entire article is 100% worth your time. What it’s like to be black in Naperville, America.


I’ve been thinking this for a while now. Our brains weren’t designed for this much bad news.


Here’s to another week – hope it’s a great one!
