It’s our last summer fridays post of 2021! This summer absolutely flew by, I’m blown away. Thanks for sharing in the summer weekend fun with me!

EATING

Some crispy buffalo cauliflower with smoked blue and avocado. The combo is one of my favorites.

DRINKING

I’m moving right into my fall cocktails, especially my red apple cider sangria. I have SO many good ones. Also love this apple cider prosecco spritz and my September sangria! P.S. you can also make this pumpkin coconut cream cold brew.

BAKING

A batch of almond butter baked oatmeal with sticky figs! This breakfast is fantastic. It’s basically dessert.

MAKING

My nutty honeycrisp harvest salad!

GRILLING

Getting very excited for my grilled autumn veggies and white bean dip.

CRAVING

My favorite September salad too. It’s such a good one.

LISTENING

To the tailgating playlist we made a few years ago!

READING

I cannot WAIT to get my hands on a copy of Beautiful World, Where Are You! Comes out on the 7th! What are you reading right now? Also – I’m giving away some copies of Everyday Dinners along with a few of my favorite novels over on instagram!

SHOPPING

I really want to try a pair of these WSLY sweats. All my mom brain can think of it how perfect they would be for early school drop off every day!

LOVING

The food52 silicone spoons. Pretty much perfect for every dish you make in the kitchen.

SHARING

All the back to school meals that you need! Even if you have nothing to do with going back to school, there is SO much incredible weeknight dinner inspiration in this post.

BEGINNING

A whole new routine next week! School starts for us on Monday and I am full of all the emotions. I wrote about it a bit in my weekly post. Emilia is going to preschool and I just can’t believe it. These are the years that I am so excited to be a mom and do all this fun school stuff.

Happy summer friday! What’s up this weekend for you?

EATING

All the corn peach and tomato salads. For as long as I can! And my BLT chopped salad. Also still riding the marinated tomato BLT train. And my one pot garlic butter shrimp orzo!

DRINKING

My favorite sparkling rosé pimms cups! Um also is it too early for pumpkin cream cold brew? Asking for a friend.

MAKING

Lemon parmesan cauliflower gnocchi. Takes literally 15 minutes!

BAKING

My caramelized peach and lavender scones. An oldie but goodie!

CRAVING

My caramelized onion dip. Make it this weekend for happy hour drinks!

READING

Starting We Are The Brennans later today!! What are you reading right now?

LISTENING

Lately I haven’t been able to get enough of my summer kitchen playlist.

WEARING

Can we talk about how much I’ve been “wearing” my waffle towel wrap. Ha! It’s the best. In all seriousness though, I’ve just been LIVING in nap dresses this summer. There has been nothing better for the 90 degree heat + breastfeeding. They have basically become my uniform. The quality is so good, they wash super well, I could not ask for more.

SHOPPING

How early is too early to be buying all the matching fall/holiday pajamas? Because I’m knee deep in them on the burt’s bees website.

PREPPING

I made my kids morning and evening routine checklists and threw them in a dry erase folder, so yes, I am now that person.

BUYING

Why do I want this weekend market tote so bad? I LOVE IT. It’s not like I can walk to the market! But it looks like something that the main character in a Nancy Meyers movie would carry.

LOVING

While we’re talking about bags, this tote that I got at the nordstrom sale is fantastic. It’s huge and all canvas – nothing gorgeous but I have loved it to keep some of my work stuff and planner together and organized. It’s an amazing structured tote! Also, this scout errand bag is INCREDIBLE. Folds up completely flat and is perfect for travel, groceries, etc.

GIVING

Today is the last day to enter our amazing greenpan giveaway over on instagram!

SHARING

How to help women in countries of conflict and war.

Think I’m going to start The Newcomer! I love MKA books. Here’s my summer reading list if you need an idea!

LISTENING

To our golden hour podcast. Soaking up these summer days as much as we can!

SHOPPING

Um I may have bought a pumpkin candle. For the record, this is my favorite pumpkin candle of all time. Still very much summer, but last year I found out I was pregnant in early October and couldn’t handle the scent of my favorite candles. I also bought this fig tree one which I’m super excited about. And I love these molded candles so much. So pretty! As soon as September rolls around, I’m a crazy candle lady. Like a cat lady, but… candles.

LOVING

I’ve listened to a bunch of The Lazy Genius podcasts this week and I really like them! I think some apply more if you have older kids, but there are many that I enjoyed and got some great tips from!

SHARING

Love the color so much in Lala Anthony’s brownstone. WOW.

PLANNING

You know I love my passion planner but I’m also loving these ink and volt planning note pads! The meal planning one is so good and so is the dashboard.

SHOPPING

Thinking of grabbing a few things that are left at the Nordstrom sale. I have these Nike shoes in black and LOVE them. Also thinking of getting this body cream because it’s one of my faves. You can find all of my other favorites here!

BUYING

I got my hands on the 40oz Stanley tumbler last week that the buy guide always talks about. The story of this cup is amazing! As a dedicated yeti cup user (I’ve used them all day, nonstop for probably five years), I’m very excited about a 40oz cup with a handle.

LOVING

Watching Ally Love’s incredible wedding week on instagram all week. It’s AMAZING. Oh my gosh. Following this has been a highlight of the week. They have themed nights and everything.

SHARING

Every year Ashley Spivey does this Clear The List program where you can help teachers get everything they need for their classroom. It’s AMAZING!! It looks like most of the lists are cleared at this point, but if you follow her, she updates in stories!

PREPPING

Once we’re home from vacation, I have some back to school prep to do! If you want to bawl your eyes out, read this: dear kindergartner, I could not love you more. Crying!

SHOPPING

The Nordstrom sale, which is finally open to anyone now! I always go in and update my favorites or what I bought and love too.

BUYING

I can’t wait to get my hands on some of my favorite michigan products this week… like a ton of american spoon to bring home, and all my favorites at cherry republic! There are so many favorites that I love.

LOVING

The Olympics!! I can’t even handle it. Max loves watching it with me every night too. The gymnastics last night was just so emotional. So was the swimming! The women and their support for each other! Caeleb Dressel and his interviews! It’s just all so much. What is your favorite?

SHARING

Leslie Jones’ tweets will make you love the olympics too.

Lemonade frosé for the win! Also craving a gigantic margarita.

Salted pretzel s’mores crunch bars. Anything s’mores, really.

LISTENING

To this summer girls trip playlist from a few years ago. Oh my gosh, this is so good!

READING

I’m feeling a little thriller-ish so I’m thinking about starting Such A Quiet Place. Here’s my summer reading list if you’re looking for something good this weekend!

WEARING

Last year I LOVED the freedom moses slides and this year is no different. I’ve never cared for birkenstocks but love these for some reason. They are the perfect outdoor shoes especially when it comes to watering plants and hanging out with the kids. I wear mine nonstop.

SHOPPING

A few things left that I want to pick up at the Nordstrom sale! Definitely have my eye on this blanket, this bag and I’m soooo tempted to get an allsaints leather jacket. Not sure if I will go for it. You can find all of my favorites here.

LOVING

What’s your child’s spiritual age (and yours!)? I love this. Even though I think I will forever feel 17ish, I’ve always felt like my spiritual age is, like, 55. Ha!

BUYING

Um hi, if you want to be insane like me, you could get these adorable pumpkin pillows that sold out instantly last year (I tried to get them last august and they never came back in stock!). As much as I’m not ready for fall AT ALL, I’m making a little exception here for my fall fanatic self.

PACKING

For our michigan vacation soon! I’m a packing nut and work off of lists and basically have everything almost ready to go. But this year it feels like we have to take ten million things because of the baby! My go-to packing bag for basically, well, everywhere is my large mz wallace tote. It fits ALL THE THINGS. I also love the dagne dover totes because they are neoprene and they last forever. I’ve had both of those for ages. A few things I’m taking for the baby that are game changers too: the guava travel crib with the bassinet attachment, the fisher price on the go baby dome and the baby bjorn bouncer (have used it since max & love it!). Should I do a (roadtrip) travel essentials post?!
