Currently... August 2017

I know this is said every time around this part of the year but I cannot believe how fast this summer has flown by! We're already so close to Labor Day weekend and the crisp fall weather! Between my job's busy season being the summer, settling into a new house, and adopting a pup, life has been a whirlwind! So, I've taken some down time to share with you what I've currently been loving this month.

READING - MAGNOLIA JOURNAL
I've recently been buying Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Journal magazine and find it so inspiring! It has the best gift guides, recipes, and home decor along with great stories. I also love that its only a quarterly magazine because it gives me plenty of time to browse through it before receiving another. I think it's time for me to finally subscribe to it!

DRINKING - CAMERON'S CHOCOLATE CARAMEL BROWNIE COFFEE
For the longest time I could never find a hot coffee I enjoyed that I could brew at home. I always preferred caramel lattes from a coffee shop and it was never something I could successfully recreate at home. But just last week the boyfriend and I discovered Cameron's Chocolate Caramel Brownie coffee! It sounds really sweet but it's like a typical brewed coffee with a hint of brownie flavor. And I'm in love with it!


EXCITED FOR - FALL WEATHER
This is the time of the year in Minnesota where the weather has crazy swings in temps which makes me desire fall way before summer is even close to ending. I'm so ready for 60 degree weather, no humidity, fall recipes, and bonfires. It can't come soon enough!

EATING - CHICKEN GYROS
Ever since we bought the house I have been trying so many new recipes! I think one of my favorites is chicken gyros with fresh tzatziki sauce and warm naan bread. Here's the recipe I've been loving!

WEARING - MY NEW AERIE SWEATSHIRT
I'm a sucker for an over-sized cozy sweatshirt and this one is one of my favorites. The color is adorable, it's super long, and so comfortable! Check it out here.

INSPIRED BY - BRE SHEPPARD'S WARDROBE
I just discovered Bre on Instagram and I am obsessed with her style and wardrobe! It's the perfect combo of girly, sporty, and everyday practical. I'll definitely be using her photos as inspiration as I search for pieces for my fall wardrobe.

LOVING - MR. REDBULL!
Kirk and I adopted a dog! He's a four year old pit bull terrier mix and we are so in love. He's the sweetest dog ever and definitely has a personality! He's afraid of thunderstorm, fireworks, and the dark (literally). Doesn't like the wet grass in the morning or being outside alone. He is allergic to chicken and peanuts so his food is hard to shop for but he makes up for it all with his cuddles, kisses, and playfulness. We really got so lucky with this guy.


PLANNING - FALL WARDROBE
Speaking of! This year I am very serious about having more of a capsule wardrobe than ever before! I want to find quality, classic pieces that are versatile and comfortable. I am all about comfort so if my clothes are anything but I will never wear them!

CRAFTING - LEAF WREATH
Now that we have our own house I am so excited to decorate! First up is an autumn themed wreath for our front door!

How has your summer been going? Are you getting as excited for autumn as I am?
