Where I Went: This month was very laid back in the travel department. Joshua was traveling a ton for work so I was at home with the little one {Reese Poppy that is}. We did manage to go to Raleigh/Wake Forest for a long weekend to see family. I also spent a couple of days babysitting my niece. She is the sweetest, happiest little girl you’ve ever seen. Watching her is such a joy! 

I’m looking to next month, we’re taking a couple trips that I cannot wait to share with y’all! 

What Movies Watched:
The Place Beyond The Pines – I had actually seen this one before but it was Joshua’s first time. I really liked the movie. A little different and Ryan Gosling was amazing {as always}. 

Recipes Tried:
Cauliflower Rice Bowl – I made a version of this for dinner last week. It’s so tasty! Very light, perfect for summer. 
The Ultimate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl – I’m not sure if I’ve shared this before but I am smoothie obsessed. I have one for lunch pretty much every day Monday-Friday. This smoothie bowl is incredible!

TV Shows Watched/Watching: Still watching Brothers & Sisters. I am SO close to being done with the series though. Only six episodes left and honestly I am so sad about it. I don’t want it to end! We’re also back to watching Nashville now that the new season has kicked off. We’ve also been watching Suits. Catching up on the last season.
