I made these headbands recently for Rose!  We can’t keep enough headbands around the house.  I recently came across this tutorial online and couldn’t wait to give it a try!  Rose picked out  some fabric and they only took about ten minutes each to sew. They are super cute but I think I will make them a little bit wider next time just to change it up some!

I tried this berry almond crisp recipe from Gimme Some Oven blog.  How cute is that blog name!  The recipe is so insanely easy and quick and it is so delicious.  I have made it twice now.  I think it might become a weekly thing at my house now.

I went to a drifting event with my son on Friday.  I absolutely love car events but this one was particularly fun.  It just had a good vibe to it.  Also, they had helicopter rides.  I have always wanted to ride in one so I did.  It was great, I’ll take that as my preferred way to travel from now on.  Kobe didn’t want to miss any of the car action so he didn’t ride this time.

Damon, Rose and I have been watching some old seasons of Amazing Race.  Due to the fact that I can’t sit still I started working on this scrappy blanket. I’m just using old scrap yarn that we have accumulated over the years.  I really like the outcome so far.  Rose has already requested this one for her bed! Tiger gave me the side eye when I tried covering him with it.

I took Rose and a friend to see The Secret Life of Pets last weekend.  I don’t usually like animated movies but I have been looking forward to this one.  It was really good.

These two songs have played on repeat for my commute this week.  I just can’t get enough.

Oh…we stumbled upon a Netflix show that is awesome.  We watched all the episodes of season one so I sure hope they have a second season.  The show is called ‘The Ranch’.  Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Sam Elliott are in it.  Can you tell we are hiding from the Georgia heat and humidity with all of the TV watching this summer?

Yep, I think that covers the highlights of life lately.  I hope summer is going spectacularly swell for you also!

      Yes, most of the things we do in our family revolve around motor sports!! Almost every weekend there is some sort of car event! I love it!
