Well let me start off by saying I am not crazy about this summer heat. Living in the South you would think I would get used to it, but no it does not get any easier. Basically since the beginning of June we have been in the upper 90’s and some days 100+. Most of our activities have been limited to indoors lately except for early mornings and late evenings. Nevertheless I am still finding things to make me smile. Here’s the line up this Friday….
1. Iced Coffee
This is very new to me. I love my coffee but I like it HOT. I would always cringe when I would see people drinking iced coffee. I just couldn’t wrap my head around it. That was until a few months ago and I decided to give it a try and now I am hooked!
2. I’ve also been staying cool by drinking Lemon, Cucumber, Mint Water.
This is so refreshing, I love drinking water. I drink at least 3 liters a day and lately at least a liter of it has been this water. Love it!
3. NYX Butter Gloss (Apple Strudel)
I saw this gloss on an Instagram account that I follow and thought it looked perfect for summer. It is a great shade for an everyday look.
4. Big Brother!!!
We look forward to this every summer! Perfect guilty pleasure It just started up this week, so it’s not too late to tune in if you missed it.
We picked the biggest most beautiful blackberries a few weeks ago. Most are now in the freezer but kept some out to make this delicious cobbler and also made Blackberry Jam for the first time. I cannot believe how easy it was and oh my goodness it is the best jam I have ever tasted. I have been putting it on everything. If you would like the recipe let me know and I will do a post on it.
What has been making you smile this week?
