I’m sort of in a mid-summer slump. To be honest, that is just a nice way of saying that I’m a hot mess. My diet is out of whack, my motivation is at an all-time low, plus a recent barrage of other general crappiness – not to mention I’m turning the big 3-0 in less than two weeks. I can’t even. Anyway, that’s my own issue to deal with. Anyone else feeling the same? Here’s what kept me busy (and temporarily out of the doldrums) this past weekend.
Wear – This just may be my new favorite shirt. If you’d like to rock the same awesomeness, you can find it here.
Snuggle – During the summer months it’s rather unusual to find my kitties snuggled together. Thankfully, I had my phone in hand when this magical moment occurred.
Drink – Okay, so Cupcake Vineyards makes some of my favorite wines and I don’t care who knows it. I was so happy to see this little guy pop up. I have yet to open it, but it sounds delicious. Thanks to all of you who recommended it via Instagram. What’s your favorite winery?
Celebrate – This past weekend was our annual family reunion at my dad’s. This year, we had more people than I’ve seen in a long time. It was a blast hanging out with my family. That’s my Dad, my brothers, my nephews and niece and me.
Bake – For the reunion, I whipped up another cake-in-jar. Remember my last one? This one was an Ooey-Gooey Chocolate Butterfinger Cake. It was pretty incredible, but I failed to take any pictures. (Evidence of what I said above – midsummer slump, hot mess, crappiness!?). I guess I will just have to make another one. Stay tuned for the recipe.
Dip – My friends and I stopped for some ice cream at the local DQ. It was one of those-wish-it-could-last-forever summer evenings – cotton candy skies and a vanilla ice cream cone dipped in cherry sauce. Perfection!
Flip – Thanks to multiple recommendations from The Handmade Mama, a.k.a. Maggie, I decided to try the new Key Lime Crumble from Chobani. Um, they are brilliant. Maybe if I start eating more of these and less cake-in-jar and ice cream, I might get my diet a little more on track.
Decorate – Last but not least, I worked on some new posts for my friends over at BHG. You know how much I love my bar cart. Well, I put together a collection of some of my favorite bar cart accessories. There is even a pig corkscrew. You can check that out here. As always, your comments there are amazing and much appreciated.
I hope you all had a fabulous summer weekend. What kept you busy?
