entertainment, on our turntable

one of the best Christmas gifts we've ever been given was this audio-technica turntable. we listen to music almost daily. popping on some tunes while cooking, getting ready in the morning or after dinner with a glass of wine. music is just one of those things can make any day better. curious what we listen to? here's what's on our turntable today.

this is Jas's current fave. he has wanted it since the first time he heard Believer on the radio and he finally caved and purchased the vinyl. it's a good addition to our collection because of the well known name and familiar sounds to round out our other unknown artists with eclectic vibes. with an engaging opener with undertones that capture your ear and the chorus gets your head bobbing and some 80's feelings, this album is an every day listen. 

vibe - current every day
some songs are easy rhythms that get you to sway, while others will get you hyped. 

favorite song - Believer
a close second is Dancing in the Dark because of the romantic feeling.

beverage paring - gin & tonic

soulful melodies tug at your heart while a voice melts everything around you - this album is a blissfully romantic. light a candle, grab a glass of wine and snuggle with your favorite someone while Leon Bridges defines the emotions you see in each others' eyes. 

vibe - throwback romance

favorite song - Brown Skinned Girl
Lisa Sawyer is a close second with that beautiful velvety love. 

beverage pairing - merlot

this one was purchased specifically for S.O.B. - while i love the entire album, this song was what sealed the deal. you can't help but clap to the beat and sing it SON OF A B*#$% at the top of your lungs when the chorus begins. just like S.O.B, the rest of the songs will get you tapping your foot and singing along. this album just makes me happy.

vibe - folk rock

favorite song - S.O.B. obviously

beverage pairing - whiskey cocktail

 

subscription services rock!

when we unwrapped the turntable that Christmas so many years ago, we had two albums i knew well - Bryan Adams (of course) and the Top Gun soundtrack - and a handful from my parents including a jazzercise mix. now, three years later we have too many to count, stacked in a nook in our entry way. some we LOVE and others we don't care for, but all get listened to on rotation. if it wasn't for our subscription to Vynl, we wouldn't have many of these babes. if you have a record player and want to grow your collection in a fun way, get a subscription. for $39 a month, they will send you three albums at random based on your music preferences defined on Spotify or SoundCloud. how cool is that!? they're your vinyl personal shopper! 

 

get yours

while, i will use our player until it stops turning, it isn't the prettiest thing. below are some of my favorites. 

anything you've been listening to lately that you're loving? do tell! we are always looking to grow our collection. be sure to comment below.

eating around town

freeinthelines-yelp-review-cooks-and-soldiers.jpg

food is so much more than munchies and meals - real food is love. it's something you create and design and craft. so food is something i enjoy. and i find writing about it allows me to better remember the experience. so i Yelp. yup, it's a verb. 

when Jas and i find some place delicious, i find i'm almost always telling someone to try the place the next day. and Yelp allows me to tell more than my immediate friends of our favorite eateries. so if you're looking for a place around town or in desperate need of a snack, check out my Yelp for suggestions and our experiences. 

and see if anything stands out. and be sure to tell me if there are places you've passed by, but aren't quite sure if you want to try them, and i'm more than happy to take one for the team and try it first.

outside the lines // visiting Seattle

next month will be my first time to the northwest - Seattle, baby, here i come! but i'm lost when it comes to packing. i know to pack for rain and "light layers", but does anyone actually know what light layers means?! when i think layers, i think knits and chunky knits at that, but that might be too hot for Seattle in october.

so i need your help, do you have light layers you love? if so, please share them with me! we are planning some light hiking, city tours and possibly San Juan. share what you pack when "light layers" are a must in the comments - i'm desperate.

shop, september etsy loves

september is my favorite month of the year. it's the catalyst between summer and fall with those awkward temperatures where you need a sweater in the morning and shorts in the afternoon. but it's beautiful. 

september is also the introduction to the new season of shopping! here are some of my latest obsessions from Etsy sellers.

photographing your pet

miraculously enough, you don't need the largest, most expensive camera or prettiest hanging backdrop to make your pet's photo look professional. all you need is some planning, natural light and this mode on your iPhone.

picked a peck of pickled peppers

who would have known we love to grow things - now we not only grow and eat raw veggies (yum!) we have been experimenting, pickling our spicy banana peppers. find out which recipe we used for the perky brine and how we felt about the experience (hint: it's easy).

green thumb love affair

it is official, i no longer have a black thumb (the kind that kills plants), it's finally green. okay, the sunshine in the new apartment might have something to do with that, but it's fine, i will take the credit on this one. now, as i sit on my patio among my jungle i can't help but smile at how much things have changed. this is my transition from a plant-mom to an apartment farmer with a green thumb love affair.
