1. How is it August already? Maxwell turns 3 on Saturday and I am just not ready for that. My baby is getting too big, too fast! He wants a pirate cake for his birthday, wish us luck:) Speaking of cakes, what is your all-time favorite cake recipe? Should I try something new?

2. We went to Deer Valley for the Ben Folds/Utah Symphony concert over the weekend and it was fantastic. My favorite date night of the year!

3. This colorful dress is stunning!

8. I rarely go to the mall, but I went last week so I could get fitted for my favorite bra. Nordstrom does free bra fittings and it is always a good idea…especially after having kids, nursing, etc. I stocked up because the perfect bra is on sale right now! I also found some fab jeans for only $25. I got these, these, and these! Now, I don’t have to go to the mall for a few more years:)

9. Who’s watching Nashville this summer? I just want to give Gunnar a big hug! Has anyone watched Ozarks on Netflix? We are thinking about starting it.

10. I’ve been eating this every day.

  1. This looks amazing! I will definately give it a try!
    I hope I will manage as I am not a great cook!

  2. We had chickens for a while and for some reason they all but one had food names. What breed is it? we had a cinnamon queen and we ended up calling her Cinnamon. Or maybe Honey, Sunny or Sandy for her Sandy feathers. it sounds like it was beautiful week. and I am loving all the fresh produce this summer too. I can’t seem to get enough zucchini.

  3. How about “Butterscotch” for at the chicken’s name.
    I love your Thursday posts and seeing pics of your adorable little guys.

  4. Oh, my gosh, bra shopping is like car shopping. You need to try a bunch and be dang careful what you buy. It makes me glad mine are fairly small. I salute all the well blessed women, but I don’t envy your bra shopping trips!

    Also, your little chickie is a beauty! Such a perfect, petite little comb.

  5. hey y’all – great list! Love the pics- I think the chicken should be called honey! Since it is the color of honey. Can’t believe Maxwell is going to be 3! They are getting so big.
