Spent part of the week recovering from jet lag. Now that I am awake and refreshed, I am seeing some pretty cool stuff here at home! Here are the five things from this week.
1: Sparrow Collective MKE: They are a local store selling crafts from artisans around MKE. I love them. Whenever I need a gift for someone I really love, I stop in just to see what they have. I currently love the a collection of kids clothes that they are selling. Check them out online or on instagram.
2: Big Wild. They are an indie band that I cannot stop listening to. Just happened upon them in a Buzzfeed article about Festival bands. This band is indie rock/ funk feel. They can feel huge with their sound, but their lyrics are so simple and perfect. “Aftergold” is the track that got me hooked. Give them a listen.
3: The OLYMPICS! I AM SO EXCITED!! GO USA! AND GERMAN SOCCER!
4: The Perseid meteor shower. That main outburst is anticipated to be on the night of Aug. 11-12, although you can catch shooting stars before and after if you’re patient enough. I know that I will be using my husbands telescope to scope it out next week!
5: This article blew my mind. “Man and his best friend have something in common: Both get worn out by having to exert self-control and end up making dumb decisions, a new study finds.” This explains so much. My husband practically hates our dog because he “know better.” Well…turns out he does, but he is exhausted.
