Reading: Surprise Me – I am only about 10% in to this right now, but so far so good. I am not sure anything will stand up to My Not So Perfect Life for me from Kinsella.

Surprise Me

Listening: I am almost done with All the Summer Girls on audio book.

All the Summer Girls

Watching: When we were at the beach, we had to actually watch commercials. Ugh, I know right?!?! Well, it wasn’t all bad because I saw an advertisement for Take Two and I squealed in delight when I saw Rachel Bilson. You know our love for Hart of Dixie. We watched the first three episodes and it is really cute.

Eating: I am trying so hard to get back on the healthy train. Once I fall, I fall hard. Amy is doing a mini Whole 30 reset starting on the 15th and I plan to join her. Let me know if you are going to follow too. I would love as many accountability partners as possible. I started taking workout selfies again this morning, and hope to add them to my monthly review post next month. We shall see how many I did. This weeks menu looks like this….

Monday: Salad

Tuesday: Turkey Burgers with Lima Beans for me and Zucchini for Chris

Wednesday: Egg Roll in a Bowl

Thursday: Korean Beef and stir fry veggies

Friday: Braised Pork Chops and Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Buying: I am probably pouring over the NSALE right now, but I did stop in Loft yesterday and found two things I couldn’t leave without. Right now, a lot of their pants are on sale for $35. I tried a pair on a whim and OMG!!!! They are so flatting and so comfortable! They are lightweight too, so you wont die in the heat of summer. I cant seem to find them on their site though. I also found this this adorable striped tank at Loft. This is an additional 40% off right now. I adored the flutter straps, it flows away from the body so comfortable for summer, and would be super cute under cardigans or jackets in the fall/winter. And um, have you met me? I tend to be drawn to black and white stripes. What can I say?

I also scooped up the Kiehls Avocado eye cream. Nothing I have used lately has worked, and my under eye area was in desperate need of some good hydration! I have had samples of this in the past, and remembered that I liked how hydrating it was. I bought the smaller container and will report back in a few weeks.

    I STILL need to read My Not So Perfect Life. Maybe I can see if my library has it before the summer ends – it seems like a good summer read. Ooh I’m loving that tank. Too cute and you’re right, you can totally wear layers over it during the fall/colder months. Love!!

    I haven’t heard of that Take Two show! I’m going to check my DISH app and see if I can catch up on the first couple of episodes. Sounds super cute. I loved Hart of Dixie too.

    I love Sophia Kinsella books. The best. I need to check out the avocado under eye cream. Sounds amazing and I love everything from Kiehls.

    That SK was just a 31/2 for me. I love her books but it didn’t leave me with that little giddiness I get from her others. I thought of you today as mom and 8 were shopping and I bought you a bithday gift. That meme!!!

    I LOVE Rachel Bilson!! That show looks really cute.

  • Reply Carly July 13, 2018 at 4:41 pm

    I literally almost sent you a message yesterday asking if you had watched Take Two! It doesn’t look like what I’d usually watch, but I might check it out because of Rachel Bilson too! I’m really bad at remembering to use it but I have that eye cream and really like it– I like that it feels moisturizing but also soaks into the skin.

  • Reply Audrey July 14, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    Um. YES to that meme. Especially after this week. Hahahaha.

    I STILL haven’t made eggroll in a bowl. UGH. We need to try that! It sounds SO good!!

  • Reply Carolann July 16, 2018 at 9:24 am

    I loved Hart of Dixie so I’m going to check out that show!!
    I hate when you love a book so much but the other books you read by that author don’t hold up. For me that was A Man Called Ove. I loved that book so much and nothing else by Bachman compares!! I know a lot of people go nuts over his books but for me A Man Called Ove was just so amazing that nothing else comes close.
