In the third episode of the To Do Lists of the Semi-Adult podcast, Jewels and I talk about our summer plans. On her blog this summer, Jewels is hosting a craft summer camp and book club, and you can participate on her blog, Twitter, and Instagram. I’m taking a fashion illustration class, and I’ve been sharing my drawings on Instagram. In our daydreams, we are going on summer vacation to this floating hotel room in Sweden. In reality, we are going to Pittsburgh’s movies in the park and spending time at the lakefront in Chicago at Montrose Beach. Our summer reads include local magazines like Edible Allegheny, Joshua Ferris’ To Rise Again at a Decent Hour, and Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes. We’ve also talk about fun restaurants like Chicago’s Fork and Pittsburgh’s Meat and Potatoes, and making Joy the Baker’s black bean and sweet potato tacos (they are delicious).
I have exciting news–me and my great friend Jewels of Oven Lovin’ have started a podcast! You know that feeling of not knowing what you’re doing, or like you’re a great pretender at being an adult? Us, too. Which is what we’ll talk about, among other things, every other Wednesday starting today on the To Do Lists of the Semi-Adult Podcast. You can catch new episodes on my podcast page, and we’ll be on iTunes and Stitcher very soon.
We will talk about a lot of things, like our day jobs, blog life, food, relationships, decorating, books, crafts, and fashion. Check it out and let us know what you think! You can listen to the first episode right here:
