Happy August 1st! It’s hard to believe that we’re only weeks away from the first day of school, fall sweaters, and changing leaves. Isn’t this summer flying by??
Today is my grandparents wedding anniversary. These two lovely people taught me how to set the table, drive a car, and shoot a shotgun!! I’m so blessed to have them in my life.
It’s also my baby sisters birthday…who’s totally not a baby anymore (she’s 18 #OMFG) and I’m sad to be missing her big celebration. Apparently the entire family is four wheeling, eating confetti cake, and going swimming. Uhhh…at least I’m watching Orange is the New Black tonight!!
Omg, speaking of TV, there are so many good shows that are about to come back on. Homeland season 3, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead….SQUEE! What are you guys looking forward to in the fall??
July went quick, but I did manage to have some “me time” by cooking, baking, running and general randomness. My favorite recipe that I made was my Quinoa Granola. It may sound plain jane, but this is hands down the best granola I’ve ever had. Give it a try!
I also made a bunch of awesome stuff from other food bloggers. Check out:

Fame Fatale is currently filling my ears. Leslie answers all kinds of “behind the scenes” questions about Hollywood. The latest show was all about how celebrities stay thin and get ready for a photoshoot or awards ceremony…super interesting!
Hope everyone has a fabulous August! xoxo
