Sunday Morning Coffee // No. 57

This week may have been a bit slow on the blog, but it certainly wasn’t a bit of ease up in my reader recently. Likely because so much has been happening here and abroad this week. Thank goodness for the Skimm.

I’m really excited about this week, because this Wednesday, Ember & March turns one! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by and how much this little space of mine has grown. If you haven’t already, feel free to add your feedback to my reader survey. You guys stopping by, reading what I have to say, engaging with me –it all means so much. I absolutely want the future of this blog to be shaped by you guys.

Four Things

1. The only thing I hate more than packing is moving, hands down. The apartment search has been going well so far, but this week I’ll be starting a moving mini series sharing my tips on making the entire process ten times easier.

2. Another chai please, seriously! I recently gave Oregon Chai a try and I am HOOKED! Definitely a new grocery list staple –can I buy in bulk?

3. I’ve been feeling like the summer has been especially slow for TV –is it always like this? Maybe I’m just going through Scandal and HTGAWM withdrawal.

4. Next weekend is really the Fourth?! This Summer is seriously flying by, but it’s been pretty amazing so far, so I won’t complain. I’ll be taking a little road trip with my family to celebrate –what are your plans?

    I didn’t really start watching TV shows until senior year of high school (senioritis whoopwhoop) (I just finished my first year of college). So far I’ve never had to deal with waiting for the next season to come out, because I’ve always been catching up. Now I’m finally caught up and I’m feeling the TV show withdrawal! This summer is feeling slow for me too 😛 Waiting for HTGAWM is how I got into listening to podcasts. Serial was so great! // LOOOL that social networking vid! I think you’d enjoy this one too:
