Happy Monday, friends! It’s the beginning of another week, and although the Monday Blues can be real, I’m ready to go after it this week! One of my favorite things about Instagram is the connections made here… so for #makewavesmonday I want to share 5 facts about myself… and I’d love to here some facts about you or what we have in common!⠀

1. My husband and I have officially been homeowners for 1 month and 2 days. We’ve loved it so much and have really enjoyed the whole reno process. Just last night we were talking about how much we love the #douglasdigs and are so happy to call it our own.⠀

2. Both Gladiator and Penelope are in my top 10 movies list. What can I say? This girl’s got varied taste!

3. My husband and I help lead an anti-trafficking group at our church and have loved partnering with local and global organizations this past year. From big things like going to Thailand and Cambodia ✈️ in February and spending time with @aim_org, to small things like cooking some meals tonight to give to a transitional home in Minneapolis, actually doing something about the things that we’re passionate about has been so good.

4. Pasta will forever and always be my favorite food! Recently I’ve been enjoying adding mushrooms, broccoli, and fresh parmesan to Annie’s white spiral mac n cheese. SO FANCY.⠀

5. I married a (slightly nerdy) engineer, and for the past 3 years he’s been trying to get me to watch Battlestar Galactica with him. He finally wore me down this past week because #showhole, and I’m ashamed to say that it isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. You guys, I’m basically Dwight from The Office. #bearsbeetsbattlestargalactica⠀

There you have it! Five super random facts about me… now I want to know about you! Do you have a show that your significant other has all but forced your eyes open to watch? Is there a cause you’re passionate about and excited to do something about? What your favorite pasta dish? Share it all, friends!⠀
