Weekly Snapshot: August 25 – 31

A look back at August 25 – 31…

Before I get started, I have to say how happy I am that it’s September 1st! Today is my all-time favorite day of the year, because it’s the start of all of my favorite days of the year. Football is starting (!!), the weather will finally start cooling down, my birthday is in October, TJ’s is in November, and of course the holidays are on their way. Hooray for September! Also, hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!

5 things we ate:
August25-31 Collage1
1. The perfect mid-morning snack.
2. It still totally blows my mind that these microwavable potato chips come out as crispy as kettle chips every single time. So good!
3. For the record, I am totally ok with fries taking up half of my plate and steak taking up less than 1/4 of it.
4. Tasty beef tacos for a quick dinner.
5. A killer grilled cheese with a delicious vinaigrette dressing.

4 blog posts I enjoyed reading:

1 thing I want to remember from the last week:
My dad has been dealing with a health scare for the past few weeks, and on Monday we got the fantastic news that he is totally ok, and all is good! It was a great moment to find out that everything we’ve been worrying about isn’t a reality.
