Weekly Recap

I had a great week. I spent the 4th of July back home in Atlanta, where I went to the neighborhood pool party before picking up my sister from the airport. Then we went to dinner with my cousins and my grandpa, which is always interesting. My grandpa is almost 91 so he really enjoys when we can all get together. (Side note: earlier in the week my mom pulled out my Great Uncle's diary from when he was a prisoner of war during WWII and it's so interesting to read!!)


On Tuesday we had planned to go up to the lake, but it ended up storming almost all day. We saw Finding Dory instead and it was sooo cute!! Seriously, if you haven't seen it, it's worth it! I laughed out loud several times.

After driving back Tuesday night (and listening to Hamilton on repeat), I started work on Wednesday! It was a long day, compared to laying around and watching Netflix in bed, so I was totally exhausted when I got home. I can already tell that this job will be tiring as can be, but will be so rewarding in the end.


Bridget Jones Baby // I love Bridget Jones Diary. (Something about lack of boyfriends and singing alone to "All By Myself" while drinking wine really resonates with me...) I actually really didn't want to watch this movie when my mom requested it on Mother's Day, afraid that it would be another boring Pride and Prejudice re-make... BUT NOW I LOVE IT! Netflix actually took it off (booooo) so I haven't seen the sequel yet, but I can't wait to see the third and final movie! #DefinitelyDarcy

Strawberry and Avocado Spinach Salad with Chicken // This salad looks soo good! Although I'm not actively a salad person (aka if I'm at a restaurant other than Panera I will definitely order something else) I'm trying to get more into them. They're yummy and healthy and low calorie. This salad in particular looks so good! I'm down for anything with strawberries and avocado.

Unfortunately with a busy week after a holiday weekend, I didn't get to spend as much time on the Internet as I usually do, so these were the only two links I actually wanted to share with y'all! Hopefully next week as things settle down I'll be able to engage better and share more.

    1. Taking a selfie with a sparkler is actually pretty dangerous and challenging!! I took about 100 before I found one that I liked... my mom was so annoyed!
