I hope everyone had a good week! This week went by really quickly for some reason... I can't believe we are almost to the weekend! Another weekend spent by the pool which is fine by me!

For the 4th we went to a family friend's patio which was lovely and then the next morning we went out for an outdoor lunch. The weather was so perfect for lunch and it was just so enjoyable to enjoy a slow lunch and beautiful weather with my parents.

This week has been HOT. I hope it cools down a bit because it's just too sweltering to be outside for extended periods! Henry and I love going on walks that are several miles long but it has just been too hot for that lately!

I just have to share a photo of my basil plant. I have never owned a plant before. I actually only bought this plant because I needed basil for a recipe and the plant was cheaper than the packaged basil. So I figured I'd see if I could care for it and it's absolutely thriving. I can't believe how fast it is growing!!! It's the little things, guys, haha!!

Wearing: I just got this inexpensive headband and I love it. I've been over the knotted headbands and puffy ones for a while and this one is stretchy and just pulls my hair back off of my face. I love the pink stripes!

Eating: Last week I shared my 10 favorite Trader Joe's products and one of those products is the Organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper soup. The other day I heated up some of that soup and added in mini mozzarella balls and chopped basil and OMG it was the best thing ever. Soup isn't really a summer dish (or at least not in my mind) but the basil and mozzarella gave it a fresh flavor and I was blown away. This soup is forever a pantry staple of ours! Someone DM'd me last week and shared that they add Italian sausage, noodles, and spinach to the soup for a heartier dinner. I will definitely be trying that this winter!
Eating II: I just ran out of these gummy vitamins. They are the best tasting gummy vitamins I have ever had. It's a probiotic as well as has vitamins that support hair, skin, and nails.

Reading: What type of onions are best for different recipes. I love onions so this was a good refresher. 

Watching: Have you guys been watching anything good lately? We started Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix and I like it but don't love it! We haven't had a binge-worthy show to watch in so long!

Listening: I've been loving 'Belong', one of X Ambassadors newest songs. It's catchy and upbeat 
Loving: Just got these pretty bracelets in from Mary Caroline Jewelry. It is a small business and Mary Caroline hand paints each bead!! 

Wanting: Love love love this dress!!!

Some of the shows we’ve binged lately are “The Great” on Hulu, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” on Prime, and “Mrs. America” on Hulu! We’ve also been watching (or rewatching) older shows such as “Pushing Daisies”, “Scrubs”, and “The O.C.”.
