1// If you couldn’t tell from the pictures above, we went to Dollywood with my Mom and Dad on Monday! The rain kept us from riding anything at all, but we still got to hear the Kingdom Heirs and enjoyed the other attractions at the park (flowers and shopping!). We ate supper at the Pottery House Cafe and Grill – it was delicious! I highly recommend eating there the next time you visit Pigeon Forge.
2// I’ve been loving Trader Joe’s Organic Bolivian Blend coffee. I prefer a mild breakfast blend (think the opposite of anything from Starbucks) and this is perfect for my taste. Now that it’s getting hot so early in the day, I drink my first cup of coffee hot and the second over ice (I use plastic ice cubes so my drink doesn’t get diluted). I love the taste of this coffee when it’s iced – it’s not bitter and perfectly sweet with a little bit of flavored creamer.
3// I know I’m super late to the eyebrow gel party….I’ve been using a basic brow pencil from Cover Girl for years. Last weekend I picked up the Elf brow kit and have been really pleased with the natural look it gives. It took me a couple days to get the hang of applying the gel using the teeny tiny brush, but I think I’m getting there. If you’re looking for a long-lasting, natural look, give this one a try!
4// Call the Midwife wrapped up on Sunday night. Overall I was disappointed with the season – I missed Chummy and Sister Evangelina – but it is still such a wonderful show that sucks me in every Sunday night. My favorite part of this season was watching Sheilagh and Sister Mary Cynthia grow into their new roles. It was so satisfying to see them find their place and thrive! Any CTM fans out there? What did you think?
5// And with the circle of life that is television, with the end of one show comes the beginning of anther. Masterchef is back on! This is “our show,” the only one that Paul and I have watched together – every season – from the beginning. It started the summer we were dating and I’ve loved it every season since! I even have my very own white Masterchef apron. Anybody else love this show?
Here are the posts from this week, in case you missed anything!
Have a lovely weekend!
