Random thoughts on an extra HOT Saturday morning:

1. I just realized something amazing. My favorite time of year is just around the corner.

Football starts next month.

2. A new episode of “What I Bought Wednesday” is live on my YouTube channel right now with the CUTEST way to organize your spices.

3. It was a good week on the blog. We talked about:

4. We just went out to eat with my brother and his family. I am so lucky to have a brother like him. He’s funny and clever and witty and sometimes he says what I’m thinking before I even do.

And his sweet family is even funnier.

5. I am totally in love with my husband at this exact moment in time. He sweet-talked me this morning with the word “mulch.”

6. I tried out these little individual false eyelashes for the first time. Old school. These little pieces of lash that you glue on. They looked okay except I kept accidentally batting my eyelashes at random people. If you were at Scotty P’s this week and I gave you a come hither look?

It was the lashes, not me.

And now?
