summer in an instagram.

so long summer.

hello pumpkin :)

It was a summer filled with best friends and laughs…

The summer my best friend got married… :) 

 We went on roadtrips, visited waterfalls, & jammed out at music festivals…

We snacked on tropical granolas’mores puppy chow (!!!) while on the go…

There were plenty of cold summer brews &  wine festivals…

And lots of smoothies to remedy some sweaty workouts or… just a walk outside in the pulsing hot Baltimore air.  Ick.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Protein Smoothie

There were doggie dates. Lots of ‘em… ;)

A bikini-friendly skinny snickerdoodle dip

and some mandatory decadent treats to keep everyone smiling.

 One beautiful summer leaves me with memories to cherish, favorite recipes to make, new music to listen to, and 1 ratty worn-out pair of flip flops.  :)

Bring on the fall!

How did you spend your summer?

    Great pics! But I don’t think summer’s over yet. My summer was full of walks in the sunshine, farmers’ markets, shopping, dinner out, friends, cooking, baking, watching TV, reading. It was also full of a lot of blogging and meeting some new blog friends like you!


    • Sallyreplied on September 7th, 2012 at 11:30 am

      I didn’t venture to any farmers markets this summer. I wish I had. Your summer sounds like it was so much fn! So glad we are blogging buds too Laura

    Your summer looks so awesome! I think I need to hang out with you! Jason and I mainly stayed home, ate junk food, and gained about 10-15 lb!


    • Sallyreplied on September 7th, 2012 at 3:06 pm

      Trust me, I ate my share of junk food haha! I’m looking forward to a more laid-back fall… on the couch!

    I love this post, Sally! The pic of you and your BFF at her wedding is just…stunning. WOW ! And the candid shots of you and Kevin and the pooch and just the sights and sounds of your summer – love this. And you’re gorgeous :)

    I used to be REALLY into Instagram but gave it up about 6-9 mos ago b/c I was just getting too sucked in – between my twitter, google reader, blog, comment replies, etc. something had to give!


    • Sallyreplied on September 7th, 2012 at 3:04 pm

      Thank you SO much Averie! It was a fun and busy summer and since I’m addicted to my iPhone, I instagrammed a lot of it!! I have trouble keeping up with it all too, but that is why we both need our coffee right?!

    You have such incredible pictures of your summer… what made me stop was the chocolate covered cherry protein smoothie, I drink a lot of smoothies, but never one as delicious looking as that one!


    • Sallyreplied on September 7th, 2012 at 3:01 pm

      Hi Durante! Thank you so much. That smoothie was a random concoction I threw into the blender one day. It turned out fabulous! I’m glad it caught your eye!

    what a fun summer recap!! we didn’t do too much this summer, went to the beach in may but we’re basically saving up for our honeymoon so we had no major trips!


    • Sallyreplied on September 9th, 2012 at 1:44 pm

      planning for a honeymoon sounds even more exciting than my entire summer!! It’s going to be unforgettable, no matter where you two go!

    Looks like an awesome summer! I like having instagram as a way to snap a few memories in the moment without the pressure of pulling out my camera :)


    • Sallyreplied on September 9th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

      Hi Nicole! Yes, I am a tad addicted to my instagram! I’m always on it. The different picture settings are so fun to play around with!
