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?
