Random Objects Haul

Do people do these, like are random item hauls a thing? I don’t know, but these past couple weeks I’ve gotten a few things, more than I normally do as most of our free money goes to exploring Korea. Well, let's be honest, it goes to eating in Seoul haha. I’m excited about some of this so I wanted to share the stuff that I’ve gotten.

When I was in the states, I found this style of dress that I LOVE at H&M; it is my all-time FAVORITE dress, ever. I got the few colors that the H&M’s closest to me had: light gray, dark gray stripes, maroon, and forest green. I have a really hard time finding dresses because most dresses that are in my price range and are styles I like are super short. Or at least super short to me. My butt is quite a bit bigger than normal for someone of my size, so it makes dresses considerably shorter in the back and I’m a pretty modest person, so I am always anxious that my dress is showing stuff that I don’t want to show. These dresses are PERFECT! They are long enough that I feel comfortable wearing them and I don’t check that they are covering every five minutes, but they’re are also short enough that it’s still cute. Now that I’m in Seoul, I went out with some girlfriends one night and saw this super cute light pink version, but they only had a large.

Ever since I’ve been on the hunt for these dresses.I finally found some and I got the white and black stripes

and the navy blue.
Unfortunately, I still haven’t found the light pink one anywhere. They’ve also been sold out online for weeks so I don’t know if they’re even still making them. But I am still looking! Every H&M I come across I look for it.
I was able to order the second book in the Shadow and Bone series, Siege and Storm, and I’m super excited. I won’t be reading it for a couple weeks most likely, but I’m super happy to have it in my library for when I am ready to read it. I’m a little sad that it’s a trilogy so once I buy the third book there won’t be any more :(.

I also got The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living by Meik Wiking. If you follow the online community I’m sure you’ve heard of this book. I’ve seen it EVERYWHERE! After hearing and reading about it, I thought that the idea of Hygge resonated with me. The hype about minimalism is wonderful and probably something I should hop on board with, but it just doesn’t sit with me; I wouldn’t say I hoard too much. Books maybe, but I tend to be pretty good about going through my stuff and throwing stuff out. This idea of cozy living that Hygge represents just resonates with me. It’s the kind of life I want. I’ve read some of the book and it’s just a nice happy book about how to live a cozy life.

Board Games
Recently, I’ve been into playing board games. I feel like my husband and I spend so much time in front of the TV. Whether I’m watching youtube videos, we’re watching Netflix, or playing a video game, I feel like we live in front of the TV. Which is fine sometimes, but I wanted to get something that we could do that we didn’t have to go out to do and wasn’t electronic. We already had a couple board games: Monopoly and Eragon, but I wanted more. So after a lot of research, I ordered two from Amazon and then we ended up buying two more from the PX.

I’ve heard wonderful things about Settlers of Catan, but it’s a 4+ player game so we can’t play it just being two of us. I found that Catan makes a two-player card game called Rivals for Catan. It’s currently sitting at the post office because we haven’t been able to get to the post office, but I’m hoping it’ll be fun!

We also got Mage Wars. I wanted another more “adult” board game but I didn’t want one that was like adventuring through a certain area and that’s what a lot of two player games are. It felt too similar to Catan to get another adventuring game like that. After a lot of research, I found Mage Wars Academy which is, what the title suggests, a game where two mages battle. I thought a fantasy style game would be fun and give some variety.

From the PX we got two classics: Yahtzee and Battleship. Mark loves Yahtzee and I’m finding that I don’t mind it and we used to have a lot of fun playing Battleship at this cafe that used to be in our hometown so I thought it would be fun to own it and bring back those memories from our first year together.

So that's it for now. I hope you enjoyed reading about the random stuff we've accumulated the past couple weeks!
