{Finally checked the aquarium and Coney Island off of our NYC bucket list...only took us 5 years!}

Happy half-way-to-Friday peeps! I've been checking off all sorts of lists around here and I have to say, there really is nothing more satisfactory than striking a line through a to-do. Unless you aren't OCD, then it's probably just a big waste of time (at least that's what Mr. RC likes to tell my OCD-self). Our checked-off list includes everything from big work projects to small house to-do's to city bucket lists. That last one feels extra-satisfactory as we've finally managed to cross things off that have been on our list since we moved to NYC. For those of you not keeping track, that would be 5 years ago. Yes, it really took us a whole 5 years to visit Coney Island, ride bikes in the city and catch Stonehenge. As the saying goes, better late than never...

How about you? Checking anything/lots of things off your to-do list as of late?

Delicacies-Bracelet.jpg

{This lobster bracelet (c/o) that I love for so, so many reasons! Of course, I LOVE lobster so the charm is perfect for me and I love the crisp white leather band, especially for summer. However, I also love that the company who makes the bracelet, Delicacies, combines two of my favorite things, food and fashion, into one. I love that each charm promotes and invokes various things (for example, the lobster promotes protection, renewal, strength & perseverance). Most importantly, I love that every bracelet purchased creates "Delicacies Dollars", aka money that is donated to a nonprofit organization that is fighting hunger. Check out more of their story and all their different charms (They make a great gift!) over on their site!}

We watched this movie over the weekend and I absolutely loved it! Except now I've added "Open restaurant in small French town" to my ever-growing list of dreams, much to the dismay of Mr. RC...

Can't stop listening to "Kicks" by Lauren Aquilina (Thanks to MK for the recommendation!)

So much yes to every one of these

Always nice to hear a good story about good people doing good things, especially these days...
