Beyond the Table

  1. If you haven’t ever gotten your knives sharpened before, I must implore you to go do so. So life changing. You think your knives now slice and dice well? Wait until you get them sharpened. You’ll wonder why you waited so long.
  2. Fuller House. Anyone binge watching this today?!

  1. I’ve never been a soda drinker and I rarely ever have it. I have gone over five years without having it on a regular basis, only when I fly (I like ginger ale in the air haha). Well, when I visited Gina and Brandy last week, we went to McDonald’s every afternoon and got a large diet coke. There is SOMETHING about McDonald’s fountain diet coke that is unreal and so unbelievably good. I crave that shit all the time and now I’m craving it again because I did it three days in a row last week. Gah! Why is it that bad habits are so easily picked up while good habits aren’t?!
  2. This Benefit Gimme Brow is my new favorite for my thin brows. It takes less than 20 seconds to put on and you get thicker looking brows without the brow pencil or powder. Obsessed!
  3. A really good message within a tear-jerker of a video. I could not stop crying, haha
  4. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I pre-ordered it. I can’t wait!!!
  5. Using this for our upcoming move because it’s GENIUS!!! I hate building boxes and then taking them apart. This pretty much solves all my problems AND I love plastic bins like the ones they rent out! They’re huge and they stack well and they’re delivered to you and they pick them up after your rental period! Easy peasy. Better for the environment too ;) and this is totally not sponsored. Found them through Google!

So funny you post this, I was just thinking if I should go get my knives sharpened this weekend (haven't done it yet) - looks like the answer is obvious ;)

Def bookmarking those moving crates for the near future - so handy & I am SO BAD at moving! Seriously!

Happy weekend! x Shannon

I get mine sharpened like clockwork every 9-12 months- it makes the biggest difference- I have to order that book too!!
