April 2019 Recap
We moved into a new apartment this month! Here’s some things we did that made it as painless as moving could be.
Collect sturdy boxes in multiple sizes ahead of time. I get really excited when a good box comes with my package in the mail. I paid for that packaging too, so I’m keeping it! Keep good tissue paper too!
Use towels and clothes as cushioning for fragile things.
Have a moving in/moving out box for important things. We kept things like scissors, tape, post its, pens, and cleaning supplies in these for easy access.
Plan for a delicious meal to reward yourself, because good food is the biggest motivator - we treated ourselves to a feast of 물 냉면 (mul naengmyun), 짬뽕 (jjamppong), and 낙지볶음 (nakjibokkeum).
Made my 1st Brandless order - I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the items I received. Definitely excited to try out more things next time. You can use my link to get $6 off your first order!
Would repurchase: Tree free tissues, ramen porcelain bowls (at $12 for 2, these were a steal!), organic raisins, and organic chia seeds.
Would not repurchase: Pasta sauce - I tried the garlic sauce and the arrabbiata and neither impressed me. Stick to making your own from scratch.
I am in LOVE with Real Dog Box. There is so much transparency through the company, the treats/chews are single ingredient and high quality, and the customer service is top notch. This is a subscription that I 100% stand behind for all dog parents. Tell them Luna & Mi referred you in the welcome text to get yourself an extra bag of treats and give us an extra bag too - free with first box purchase.
We celebrated our anniversary this month with a trip to Austin, enjoying my favorite squid ink malfadine dish at North Italia, kouign amann from Le Politique, and bingsu (cravings finally satisfied since San Antonio doesn’t have a spot!).

New dishes I’ve been cooking up:
Cool find - this planter is super neat! I personally find indoor houseplants and succulents so much harder to keep alive than my edible plants.
