This is essentially a detailed shopping list of everything we purchased to be dirt bikers. Now, I use the term “dirt biker” very loosely when describing us. I mean we have dirt bikes and are semi-functional on them. We don’t ride professionally or anything crazy like that. I have a tendency to fall off mine several times each trip. Since we are complete beginners, we got pretty much every item of protective gear we could find, but kept the rest minimal-ish. So, here’s our list of what we use as dirt bikers.

Growing up does not come with an instruction manual. We by no means are experts on how to “adult” or function in society, but we do feel like we’ve learned a lot over the past few years on how to meander through a little better. This is not a be-all, end-all list. This post is a roundup of life skills that as young adults, we feel have been necessary to have.

It’s finally 2021. But, places are still closed and there’s not a lot to do for entertainment. We’re still working out, but it’s so cold here currently that when we have free time on the weekend, we stay inside instead of riding or hiking. Due to this, we watch a decent amount of tv and movies. The only streaming service we have is Amazon Prime Video, just because we already have Amazon Prime and we weren’t too amused by Netflix or Hulu. If you’re in the same boat, check out our list of what to watch on Amazon Prime.

So if you’re moving away from home for the first time we have a first apartment checklist in our resource library (one version with what we’ve looked for and a blank one for you to make your own). Just subscribe here for free access! If you just want the checklist, then you can skip this post. If you want more detail about what we included on the first apartment checklist and how we’ve picked apartments, read on.

For the longest time, we lived the college student cooking life. To be completely honest, spaghetti is still a staple in our meal rotation. For awhile we tried to upgrade our dinners by trying Pinterest recipes. A lot of them were super weird, not very instructive, or just didn’t work. Obviously I am a blogger and sometimes I share recipes (such as our most popular recipe post, Instant Pot Chicken and Rice), but in general, I don’t really read blogs or trust blogger recipes anymore just because of all the DIY and recipe fails I’ve experienced. Recently, we started trying HelloFresh recipes.

If you weren’t already in the know from following us on Instagram, we’re now engaged! Evan proposed while we were in Washington, visiting family (kept it under 10 people). We’ll go into more detail on the proposal and everything else marriage-related in future posts. I would start a whole series on wedding planning and stuff, but with Covid going on, that probably won’t happen for another year at least. So, I’ll discuss the things that have already happened, like how we found my unique engagement ring.
