Hello loves!

I hope everyone has a wonderful fourth of July weekend and got some time off to relax and enjoy time with friends and family! We only had a half day on Friday and are closed for Saturday for the 4th, so I am taking advantage of my extra time off. Wish I could say I am doing a lot of productive chores, but that never seems to be the case with me.

So I thought since I had some extra time I would do a What I Am Loving Lately post.

1. Holiday Fun

With it being the holiday’s and grilling season (however not really for us in our 115 degree weather) I love seeing all summer time recipes floating around.

It’s no secret I enjoy a nice adult beverage from time to time and this Red, White & Blue Sangria looks delicious!

I am also loving everything and all things watermelon! It is one of my favorite fruits of the summer.

I thought this Watermelon Feta & Balsamic “Pizza” was such a unique way of using the fruit.

Watermelon Feta and Balsamic "Pizzas" – a fun summer appetizer or the perfect side dish for anything you put on the grill.

 2. US Women’s Soccer


I blame Matt for this one. He is the soccer lover and I managed to make it though the men’s world cup with some interest, but for some reason I am really loving watching the women’s world cup.

Maybe because I’m a woman and I can relate more to their stories? I’m not sure, but I am totally digging it and so excited we made it to the finals.  GO USA!

 3. Ellen DeGeneres Spoofs Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln Commercial

I may be late to the game on this one, but my co-worker just showed me this today and I was rolling. I love Ellen DeGeneres and think she is hilarious, so I may be biased, but it’s definitely worth a watch if you want a good laugh.

4. Fun Product Finds.


– Oolong Shot – grabbed this randomly while walking around in Whole Foods.

Simply Protein – Protein Chips – these seriously taste like Chili Cheese Fritos!

Epic Bites – I love the bison Epic bar and was just as impressed with the Bison Meat with Uncured Bacon, Chia and Raisins bites.

Mamma Chia – Chia Vitality Granola – Vanilla Almond Clusters – this was a random Target find. Target never disappoints.
