  • We went on a family hike to Shadow Lake. It was a beautiful day and my knee felt pretty good. I hope I can start riding my bike soon. FYI-these are the hydration packs the boys use.
  • We officially started construction on our basement project.
  • We celebrated our anniversary this week, 14 years.
  • The boys attended the University of Utah baseball camp this week. They loved it.
  • Game 6 tonight! Let’s go Warriors! Making this for the big game.


  • New this week, a favorite summer dessert, a one pot meal, simple salsa, and FUN cookies!
  • Cute detail on this skirt. I also love this one. And there is a 30% off sale happening right now!
  • Why are Trader Joe’s dark chocolate almonds so good? You know, the ones with the sea salt and turbinado sugar. One always leads to ten.
  • We started watching We Crashed. Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway are so good in it!
  • I love the sleeves on these tops: one, two, three.
  • When it comes to ice cream, cup or cone? Cup for me, unless they are really good homemade waffle cones.
  • Very into this salad.
  • Josh finally convinced me to get a pair of Hoka shoes, he swears by them. I usually wear Ultraboosts, which I love, but decided to switch things up. I am liking them so far!
  • The Warriors play tonight and I am excited and super nervous! They need one more win!!
  • A few favorites for Father’s Day: breakfast, Josh’s all-time favorite recipe, steak (salad, tacos, or kabobs), the best burger, pie, cobbler, cake, and cookies! Have a great weekend!
Get the best of the best!
