Bites of Real Life, 9. ☀
Welcome back to my bites of real life.
A little taste of my world so far this summer. ☀
1) Minty green sandals ($20 at Target)
2) I love this beer!
3 + 4) Date night.
Frosties and fruit. Summer treats I love all year long!
I make this homemade peanut butter all the time. Every week, no lie.
Sometimes I add pumpkin seeds and almonds along with the honey roasted peanuts. Eat it with a spoon, carrots, pretzels, apples, Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Oatmeal Scotchies and/or everything else in the world.
Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Cookies have been happening a lot here. Oh YES!
Just bought this watch. I adore mint green everything!
Funfetti Nails (!!!) ♥ ♥
My 110 lb cuddle bug.
The shaved part of his leg is where Jude had surgery 3 months ago. He had a cancerous tumor removed and we pray it doesn’t return! He is healing well and back to his normal silly self.
This Detox Smoothie makes a great workout recovery fuel.
Feeling strong this summer! 10 lb bags of sugar and a 10 lb camera sure are heavy.
Kevin and I leave for Deep Creek Lake on Sunday! An entire week of vacation. We went there last summer and again last January. Deep Creek Lake (Swallow Falls) is where he proposed.
I just finished the first half of my cookbook manuscript (to be released Spring 2014) and I can’t wait to take a little break!
This vacation means bathing suits, flip-flops, campfire s’mores, cold brews, and sunshine.
I picked a bridesmaids dress for my girls! My sister has a part time job at a Lilly Pulitzer shop and we were able to snag a great discount on the stunning two-toned lace dress. Paired with a nude heel and gold jewelry, the girls are going to look beautiful!
My maids of honor are my two older sisters. My bridesmaids are Kevin’s two sisters and my best friend from home, Amy. Amy’s daughter will be our flower girl.
My shoes will be pale blue/Tiffany blue. “Something Blue”
The colors of our wedding are pretty much the colors you see here on my website, but a bit darker since the wedding will be in the late summer/fall. (9.20.14)
Oranges, pinks, and a sprinkle of light blue. Similar to this color scheme:
I’ll be sure to post updates as we plan the wedding!
Can you believe it’s already August?
How are you spending your the last several weeks of summer?
