It’s our last summer fridays of the year!

EATING

Pesto meatball melts! And fresh fig grain bowls. I love the vinaigrette.

DRINKING

Red apple cider sangria! Apple cider margaritas! I could get into all the apple cider drinks right now.

MAKING

Just so you have it in your arsenal: all the things to make after you go apple picking! So many good recipes here. Our local farms are already doing apple picking as of last weekend.

BAKING

My double fudge zucchini chocolate chip cookies. So much zucchini! And apple cinnamon baked oatmeal.

GRILLING

Anxiously awaiting these grilled autumn vegetables with brown butter bean dip.

CRAVING

My honeycrisp quinoa kale salad. And this chipotle maple pumpkin hummus.

READING

This Time Tomorrow! I didn’t read this yet even though it was high on my list. You can find my full summer reading list here. Also… do you want a fall reading list too? I usually post it around the first official day of fall.

LISTENING

To this new slow mornings playlist we put together! Think slow fall mornings, lots of coffee, a little chill in the air… yes.

WEARING

I am obsessed with Merritt’s capsule wardrobes that she puts out each season, but especially in fall. This one is so good. It provides so much inspiration for basics and different outfits to put together. Especially since we’re back to wearing real clothes now.

LOVING

A ton of back to school meals right here. This list is pure gold for anyone who is searching for good weeknight meals. I will reference this almost every week over the next few months. Also… how to pack lunch for yourself. Like, not recipes. But actually HOW to pack.

SHARING

Lots of new videos over on instagram! Corn, tomato, peach salad with crispy quinoa. The best summer grilled salmon. This guacamole salad! And blueberry zucchini muffins.

SHOPPING

I grabbed my favorite fall candle and am putting it out September 1. This scent is incredible.

CELEBRATING

The unofficial end of summer for us, with the last summer fridays post today! It always makes me so sad to end these but I have so much delicious fall content for you – I need more days to share it. Just wait for fall coziness, thanksgiving, holidays – everything! It is so, so good this year.

When We Were Bright and Beautiful – just got this in my book of the month! Here’s my link if you want to join. I love it so much.

WEARING

I have always loved a platform shoe because I’m so short. But the platforms out this last year or so are not something I thought I’d ever consider – they are soooo high. I am obsessed with the blue hill house platforms but can only envision wearing them under flare jeans and they’re so pricey. I’m tempted by the schutz version but also convinced I will fall on my face since 2020 removed high shoes out of my life for so long! I do love the platform trend though.

SHOPPING

The best thing I bought last holiday season was the bonne maman advent calendar. We all loved this SO MUCH. They just released it again and it always sells out early in the season. Saveur talks about it here.

SHARING

A few new videos! Baked peaches & cream oatmeal cups, grilled chicken avocado orzo and the best chilled queso. Have you made any of them?!

LOVING

I love the new podcast series Sharon Says So launched all about first ladies. It’s so interesting. If you didn’t listen to her Momentum series, you must!

PREPPING

For back to school! We still have two weeks left but we’ve got school supplies and I have a handle on everything we need for our routine. We’ve used the yum boxes for years and Max loves them – we’ve tried many variations of lunch boxes and these are my fave. I put them in the dishwasher and they are fine. I also get these awesome ice packs for them which we use for just about everything.

This podcast on holding seasonal ceremonies. I love it.

SHOPPING

This week MacKenzie Childs started their famous barn sale! When I went to visit their HQ, we learned how people would line up for hours for this sale. It is huge. Since the pandemic, they have moved it online which is even more incredible because you used to have to travel to New York to participate. Just a few gems that are included: the classic tea kettle, the pumpkins, the dessert stand, the canisters and the gratin dish.

WEARING

Obsessed with this crew neck sweatshirt. It is sooo soft.

WEARING

Um hi my fave align tank is now also in hot pink. I felt I had to alert you!

SHOPPING

Some of my favorite go-tos are on major sale right now. Like the slumberpod, this cake plate, this nursing bra.

P.S. you can find my amazon favorites here, all separated by category.

LOVING

I can’t get over how much I love a few lip products right now. This tarte juicy lip plump, the lawless lip gloss, this dior shine lipstick in tie and dior. They all have a glossy feel and such a pretty look. They are all effortless and feel so soft on the lips too!

This is the first weekend in awhile that we haven’t had anything to do and I am living for it. I’ll be getting ready for our vacation later next week because I’m a crazy person and pack/prepare at least a week ahead of time to make sure I have everything.

Just started The Bodyguard last night! I realize that’s annoying because it’s not out yet, but I got it in my book of the month club for July which is one of my favorite things ever. It’s also a great gift! You can join with my link right here.

LISTENING

This is a very fun weekend for us so I’m linking two of my favorites: our wedding weekend playlist and this amazing wedding shower party playlist that we’ve listened to constantly since 2016.

SHARING

TIBAL on instagram has started her Clear The List campaign that is INCREDIBLE. It’s a way to support teachers and what they need for the school year. The list is absolutely huge but you can search buy town/city to find someone local to you. Use COMMAND F to search the document (seriously, it is large) for your local teachers. Of course, you can always choose any list and also just a few items are helpful. I cleared two last night and plan on doing more this weekend!

LOVING

I love Sharon Says So so much and while her IG is great in general, she also has a podcast that is wonderful. She has a new series called Momentum and it’s about how everyday small events, ordinary people and the like created momentum to make a huge change with the Civil Rights movement. You want to listen to them in order – they are SO good.

WEARING

Hello this is very uncool and makes me extremely old and I’ve talked about them a million times but if you’d really like to know what I’m wearing 24/7 right now, it’s the oofas flip flops which are fabulous to cook in. Or do anything for any amount of time while on your feet.

SHOPPING

I shared my favorites for the Nordstrom anniversary sale right here. I have a love/hate relationship with the sale because it’s so much of the same thing every year. But because of that, many of my longtime favorites are included so I give you in depth reviews in the post. ALSO! This is the huge. The Aura digital frame that I’ve bought for five gifts recently is in the sale. This is truly the best gift ever.

WATCHING

Some new videos on IG! My fresh green been salad, pickled blueberry burrata, frozen watermelon mojitos, summer salmon tacos and summer couscous salad.

TRAVELING

To Columbus, OH this weekend for a verrrry special reason…
