I couldn’t think of just one thing to post about today so instead you get whatever is on my mind…HA! Sorry in advance.
I started and finished the new season of Orange is the New Black this past weekend. Y’all. It was sooooo good!! Definitely different than the first three seasons but in a good way. If you love comedy that’s a little dark then you should check it out!!
I also finally started watching this season of Game of Thrones and I am sooooo exited for it!! I binge watched the first four seasons two summers ago and then watched last season week by week and it went soooo slow!! So this season I chose to not watch any of the episodes until this week and I like it this way. It’s really good so far but I’m only 3 episodes in so anything could happen!!
Last night I made homemade whipped cream for the first time ever!! 1. Why have I never done this before and 2. It’s so easy and tastes so good!!! If you’ve never made it before you should totally try!! I just threw some heavy whipping cream and a capful of organic vanilla in a chilled mixing bowl and set my mixer on medium and let it go until it formed little peaks. So damn good!
One of my favorite parts of summer is sitting on the back porch and watching Sophie run. When I built my house I made sure there was a covered back porch because I knew how much I loved to sit out back and drink a yummy drink. Summer time back porch sitting is literally the best thing ever.
I have a couple of fun trips coming up and I can’t wait to share them with you! Instead of taking one huge trip like I did last summer, I’m taking a few short weekend trips! I’m going to NWA (northwest Arkansas) one weekend to stay with a friend and go to a birthday party for another friend, Nashville in July with Rebekah to see our friend Jenn, Ohio in August to see my friend Libby and my grandparents, and to Lubbock in October with Rebekah to see KK coach!!! I really hope we get to meet him!!!!!! #LifeGoals
What trips do you have planned for this summer??
Homemade whipped cream is so good! I love summer, too, and the hubs and I are headed to Turks and Caicos for 2 weeks on July 9th. I’m so ready for a vacation and to hit the beach.

OMG, Game of Thrones is ssssooooo good! I can’t wait for you to get really deep into the season. it is fantastic!

We love short road trips. We make small trips every few weeks when possible. Oh, and I’ve never tried homemade whipped cream, but now I’d really love to try! Yours came out so good-looking!

Sounds like you have had a great week so far. Have fun on your trips. Your back yard lawn is such a beautiful bright green, can’t blame you for wanting to put your feet up and hang out on the porch.
I love homemade whipped cream. It’s so much tastier than the store bought stuff, especially on some fresh strawberries. Now I’m hungry.

My kids came up with a very boring summer bucket list so I had to intervene and add a bunch of excursions to it. I tried to make whipped cream once, I ended up with butter instead.

I really need to catch up on OITNB. My son is really into Game of Thrones too! That homemade whipped cream looks great!
Ah! Game of Thrones – it’s like my hubby and my obsession right now. I just can’t get enough. I did watch OITNB for a while but I haven’t seen the last season – I guess I need to check it out.
Am I the only person on the planet that hasn’t watched GOT? I guess I need to get with the times and give it a try! :) I did watch the 1st season of OITNB. I didn’t love it. Haha – maybe I’m weird!? Your homemade whipped cream looks delicious!!!!! And summer being here is definitely a plus!
What a fun catch up post! I love going outside and watching the kiddos play too!
What a great catch up post, thanks for sharing some tidbits of your world with us!
I totally agree homemade whip cream is the best! So easy and way better than anything you can buy! Sounds like you have lots of fun trips planned. I hope you have a wonderful time.
Such a fun post! I’m in the midst of planning some fun trips this summer – I hope yours is off to a great start too!

I love Orange is the New Black and am so glad you mentioned the new season. This is one show I love binge watching. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Homemade whipped cream? Now that is something I have never made but it looks super tasty! I haven’t seen either Games of Thrones or OITNB yet, may have to check them both out!

I started watching Orange Is The New Black as well and so addicted to watching it lol. I’m watching episode 11 right now.

I finished OITNB also and I loved it. I laughed, I cried, I got mad, happy, sad. They really hit on everything this season.
Jennifer Kearney says
Haha I love this post and GOT is sooooo good!! This last Sunday’s episode was out of control and the best episode yet!
I’ve got to binge OITNB soon!
