things and thoughts:
have y'all read "what alice forgot"....LOVED it.  i'm dying for another book like that....fill free to give me suggestions.
shovels and rope "the devil is all around" is the best song ever. (i know i say this often, but really, it's flipping great...and they are charleston peeps so that is an added bonus)....looking for new bands, fill free to suggest!
this app is so good and so easy!!!  if you're looking for something for a friday night, this is my go-to!
lastly, i tried stitch fix....my first box wasn't the best....but i'm giving it another try....have y'all done this?!!

our summer so far has been spent at the pool and sitting on our screened in porch.  my favorite thing to do at night is grill out, enjoy a glass of wine (or margarita), and listen to music.  this song will be making an appearance tonight.....hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!!

it's been long overdue but i wanted to thank y'all for the wonderful suggestions for our trip to California.  i will never do another trip w/out asking for your help....it was just that fun.  we literally did as much of it as we could in the short time we were there.  here were our favorite things from the trip:
Abbie's at Seal Beach...asian nachos.
Running in Laguna Beach and La Jolla- such a fun way to see the city and the views were amazing.
Drive on Hwy 1
Eating at Bull Taco in Cardiff...never would have known this existed....thank you Grace.
Croughnut at VH Donut....OMG
Hike in Torrey Pine...amazing
Dinner at Georges- best waiter, steak, and dessert....we loved La Jolla.
Coffee Cup, Ryan Goslings twin works there.
Authentic Mexican restaurant, Las Cautro Milaps (recommended by our waiter at Georges)
And the sunset at Coranado
Y'all are the best!!  Thanks for taking time to help plan our trip!!
