Adventures in Favorites: July 2013

Some months I have a hard time coming up with things that have been my favorite...but July 2013 seemed to be FILLED with things that I have been just loving! So let's get started: 

1) Princess Kate and Prince William's new bundle of joy Prince George ~ Ok, confession: I am completely fascinated with the Royal Family! I got up in the middle of the night to watch William and Kate's wedding with some friends. I have scoured the internet for Kate's baby bump pictures - she is just gorgeous and always so classy. For days I checked every morning to see if there was news of the Royal birth. So exciting! What a beautiful family!

2) Boat rides on the Mississippi ~ In mid-July we got to visit my Aunt and Uncle in Minnesota, and they took us on a wonderful pontoon ride on the Mississippi River. It was beautiful, fun, and so relaxing. There is no way my camera skills could capture the beauty of this area...

3) Drywall in the Basement listening to Pandora 50's rock n roll ~ We like to listen to music while working in the basement (and maybe sing a long a little!), but after a while the same songs get a little boring, so I found a new favorite Pandora station - 50's Rock'N'Roll! It makes drywall-ing a little more fun! 

4) Farmer's Market Wednesday ~ I love Wednesday mornings and TONS of fresh yummy! Daniel and I get up extra early so we can hit up our local farmer's market right when it opens, before going to work.
My favorite is the fresh, green lettuce! 

5) Blueberry Picking @ Tammen's Treeberry Farm ~ Can you overdose on antioxidants from blueberries?? Because I've probably eaten about 3 lbs of blueberries in the past week - they are just so good! 
6) Tiger Sauce ~ Daniel's cousin introduced us to this sauce. And we have been LOVING it. It's a cayenne pepper based sauce that adds flavor and a little kick, but does not melt off all of your taste buds with flames of fire. We like to use it on meats mostly, but have heard of other people using it on veggies and even pasta dishes! I am not a girl who likes spicy foods, I buy mild salsa at the store, but I have been LOVING this tiger sauce - perfect for a summer BBQ! 

What have you been loving this July?!


  1. I got up in the middle of the night to watch DIANA's wedding :) ... so I wasn't about to miss Williams :) I started watching it at home, SPED to work so I wouldn't miss a lot of it & had it streaming on my computer at work till they sped away in their car... I'm obsessed with them too...

  2. I want to go put on that Pandora station right now!

  3. I'm obsessed with the Royal Family too. My friends and I threw a Princess Party in our dorm to watch & celebrate Will and Kate's wedding. I had been obsessively watching the news for weeks to see when Kate went into labor and then once she did, I watched it all day!

  4. I am obsessed with the Royal Family too! I checked almost every hour on new updates on the Royal baby. I love going to our local Farmers market too! Nothing beats fresh produce that's for sure!

  5. I love boat rides. Lee borrowed his dad's boat for a while and we used to ride a lot, but he's returned it now. :(

  6. I l-o-v-e Pandora and play it through my TV everyday and on my IPad.

    Beautiful boat ride!

    We have a small Farmers Market and I enjoy going there for the fresh veggies.

    Happy rest of the week!

  7. I feel the same way...July was a great month, wasn't it?! I'm also obsessed with the Royal I was really excited about the baby. We eat blueberries over here every day!! Yummm!
