Hey everyone! Hope you had an awesome weekend- ours was busy but great. We made it to Deutschtown Music Festival on Saturday, and it was a blast as per usual. We saw bands at a variety of different venues, my favorite being a new coffee spot in Deutschtown called Kaffehaus. They had Caramel Pretzel Nitro Cold Brew, and now my life will never be the same.
Today we took advantage of having no solid plans. I did a morning stretch class at Bend The Bridge yoga studio in Bridgeville, and it was the perfect way to start my day. I’m currently taking a 6 week beginner’s course there and it comes with unlimited classes for the month- so I’m trying to try as many as possible. I plan on doing a spotlight on the studio once I finish up the course, but you should definitely check them out beforehand!
Then, we spent the afternoon at Mingo Creek Park in Washington County. We are trying to get Luther (our lazy pup) used to going on longer walks so he can camp and hike with us. It was a little hot, but we had a great time and Lu had fun playing in the creek.
Check us out on Instagram for some photos highlighting the weekend!
Now, let’s get into the detail for the week (so we all have time to get ready for Game of Thrones). I must have been feeling a little crafty when I was picking out events for this week, and you’ll see why-Cheers!

Also, if you haven’t listened to WYEP yet, you are seriously missing out.
That does is it for this week. Hope it flies by for everyone, and I’ll see you back here on Wednesday to give you some weekend ideas!
