Weekly Recap

This was a really short week. I ended up being sick on Monday (I think exhaustion after traveling so much, does that happen to anyone else?) so it felt like another 4 day work week.

My friend Erin is visiting for the weekend and we're going to one of my favorite ATL neighborhoods on Friday and the lake on Saturday with my family. My aunt bought a waterski for our boat and I've never waterskied in my life, so I'm nervous but excited to try it out!

On the other hand, I have a feeling that this weekend will be the weekend where I have to make some huge decisions about my future. Hopefully I'll be able to share details soon, but in the meantime, I'm just hoping to keep my sanity while my friend is in town. (Though it will be great to have her around to talk to in person about all of this!)


Mandy Harvey, America's Got Talent // Holy. Crap. This is exactly the kind of inspiration I needed heading into the weekend. I watched this the other night and I really had to keep myself from crying - though on second thought I should have just let it out! I absolutely love this quote that she said, "I wanted to do more with my life than just give up." YES GIRL. I might have to watch AGT just for her!

Homemade Basil Lemonade // I was thinking the other day about a coffee shop in Atlanta that had the best basil lemonade, but I think it closed. Basil lemonade is SO GOOD and so refreshing on a hot summer day (especially in the South when it's 100 degrees and 80+% humidity!). I've never made homemade lemonade but I might have to try this recipe for the infusion of basil.

Amal, The Perfect Mother // Amal Clooney, resident badass human right's lawyer, gave birth to her twins on Tuesday! Of course, they're probably the world's most perfect children. I mean, their mom is one of the greatest women on this earth. I guess their dad is fine too, but Amal is better. Also, this definitely means that Beyonce has given birth to her twins, since her pregnancy announcement was first and she was farther along when her and Jay Z announced that they were expecting... classic Bey keeping it a secret, but we'll hear it soon enough.

Bachelor in Paradise Cast // ABC announced the Bachelor in Paradise season 4 cast (how have there been 4 successful seasons of this...?) earlier this week. I would say that so far the cast is pretty much what we all expected, with the exception of a few. Like, DeMario... what are you doing? Go home my dude.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
