Guess what? I’m in Palm Springs for the rest of the week atttening Camp Mighty. I’ll be busy getting inspired, hanging out with creative pals and drinking cocktails hopefully in the hot tub. It’s a rough life, y’all.
I’ll check back in next week and give you a play by play of sorts. Until then, all the hugs. xo

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s the start of soup season. Soup is not only my favorite thing to make, it’s also one of my strong suits in the cooking department. Isn’t it nice how that works out? Is there anything better than cooking a big pot of soup ? It’s cheap, the prep and cleanup is minimal, it’s easy to keep things low cal and it’s pretty impossible to screw up. I prefer chunky, healthy, wholesome, almost always vegetarian soups, that way I feel like I can have an extra serving or two and it’s not the worst thing in the world. In fact, I like these soups so much I’ve started a soup only pinterest board to collect all the delicious soups I’d like to make as the cold weather settle’s in.
Let me know if you have a must-make recipe.

-This movie that you should hurry up and see. Or avoid altogether. I saw it and thought it was fantastic but the hype is building it up way too much.
-These jeans. Because they’re skinny jeans and I don’t absolutely effing hate them. It’s a miracle. Now to be clear, they don’t look like this on my lumpy body. But still.
-I think this manicure (a.k.a. My Rally Nails) was one of my greatest ideas ever. Unfortunately, it did jack squat for my team. And it’s a little awkward that I’m still rocking it.
-This candy bar (a Crunchie!) because I have one in my fridge that my Man brought me all the way from London. Actually he brought me two and a bag of Crunchie bits. But those are long gone.
-Oh and have I mentioned I’m going to Camp Mighty? Yup. Leaving Wednesday. Excited. Curious. Anxious. And can’t wait to see a few of my favorite bloggy pals.
Happy weekend y’all. xo

It’s no secret I love baseball, more specifically and pretty much exclusively, Atlanta Braves baseball. In a heartbreaking game on Monday night, we lost the division series to the Dodgers. It always hurts to lose. But Braves loses are emotional for me. I don’t just love my team, I love what it stands for and what it reminds me of which is my beloved hometown, my roots, my family and dearest friends and my childhood. I feel the wins and the loses in my bones. But, we take the loss in stride (we’re pretty used to them) and we officially say goodbye to summer and baseball season. One of the true beauties of baseball is come spring training we get to start all over again. After all, there’s always next year.
See you then, Bravos.
p.s. Baseball is dead to me but if I must… Go Pirates!

Apologies for the lame Katy Perry reference. I should probably be ashamed of myself but I’m not because I’m a sucker for a good, pump you up, shake a tail feather pop song and Ms. Perry happens to be great at those. Plus they play it in spin class and it gets stuck in my head for days and days. Speaking of roar. I am feeling like I need a cute pair of leather flats for the fall to wear with jeans. In fact, it’s the last of my fall essentials. They’re sort of a jazzed up neutral and so much more exciting then boring old black, don’t you agree?
p.s. I covet the Jcrew ones but $258 is just rude. I’m not sold on any of the others either. What do you think?
