what i’m loving.

in random rambles

hey, guys! thanks for all the kind words on my last post!

tonight i am going share some things i have been loving lately.. enjoy!

under the dome.

i am not a huge TV person. i love to watch the food network and the game show network, but that’s about it! however, every once in awhile marshall and i will get sucked into a series. our newest interest is “under the dome”, a series based on the stephen king novel. it’s on on monday nights. last night was the second episode, i am hooked!

i am also hooked on a new drink…

starbucks green tea peach lemonade.

the other day, mandy snapchatted me a photo of her sucking down this new starbucks beverage. being the peach lover i am (it’s my favorite fruit!) i HAD to get it. immediately. i tried one on sunday and, dang, that’s refreshing. it’s so good. i went back to get another one last night and they were out of lemonade and asked if i just wanted green tea with a shot of peach.. so i agreed. word to the wise: DON’T DO IT. it was gross. moral of the story? the lemonade is what really makes this drink shine. mmmm.

while i was at starbucks, i was ooo-ing over their cold beverage cups. i had some money left on a gift card, so i picked one up.. which brings me to item #2 i am loving!

starbucks geometric insulated tumbler.

with a side of cute randy, of course! this cute cup not only is appealing to the eye, but it keeps your drink cold for hours. win. it’s perfect for the pool.. because it’s bee over 100 degrees here lately. which brings me to item #3 i am loving…



don’t so much love all the freckles i am getting, but i am loving the pool. last year i think i went to the pool ONCE and the year before that i am not sure i went at all! such a fail on my part. this summer i have already been swimming a dozen times, and plan to go approximately 587 more times. give or take. it’s hot well into the evening right now, so going after work is totally an option. i love how light it stays!

which brings me to #4…



i love how light it is at night! we had dinner around 8:45 and i had plenty of daylight to snap photos outside. yeah, can you believe it, i actually took photos of my dinner.. i will have a recipe post up this week for these delicious chicken caesar sandwiches.. sooo good. my next thing i am loving is actually an ingredient in the sandwiches…

fresh herbs.


my gym has a community herb basket and i stole a bag of fresh parsley last night. the farmers market is up and running, so i can’t wait to buy all my herbs there rather than at the grocery store. i actually want to grow my own, but how does that saying go.. the road to hell is paved with good intentions? yeah, that doesn’t really apply here since i won’t go to hell for not growing my own herbs.. but anyway.. this is really getting off track. i want to grow my own. that won’t happen. but i love eating the ones others grow!

i am also loving a few more delicious things made by others…

chobani flips.


specifically the coconut and key lime flavors. SO GOOD. and rumor has it the new mystery flavors may or may not include coconut and key lime. eep! speaking of the mystery flavors, i need to announce the winner of a mystery case of chobani! random.org picked #5, melissa R. congrats!

another snack i am loving…

trader joe’s kale chips.

spotted these on the shelf the other day. they are DELICIOUS! and way cheaper than kale chips at whole foods. and way easier than making your own.. even though that IS really easy. buying a bag is way easier, haha. sold.

i am actually a sucker for anything that catches my eye at the store. i have a shopping problem. which brings me to the final item i’m loving lately…

american eagle trouser shorts.


i bought these shorts the other day in white and pink. they were having a sale for buy one pair, get another for $10.. so i got both for $40 total. i want to go back and get more colors! they are so comfy and a fun change from denim.

i’m off to watch some more twin peaks and eat some taquitos! i just might take photos and share that recipe with you soon.. we’ll see ;)


1. what are you loving lately?

2. do you have a garden? if so, what do you grow? if not, what would you want to grow?

A community herb basket? Thats amazing! Those chobani flips are the best! SO good. Cute cute shorts. I think your freckles are adorable!

Presley @ Run Pretty July 2, 2013 at 8:35 pm

I bought those same shorts on sale earlier this year. I am OBSESSED with them. I’m not going to discuss how often I wear them or whether or not I wash them every single time…

I didn’t see pink, though. I’m upset about this.

Lisa July 2, 2013 at 9:46 pm

Holy moly that Starbucks tea sounds heavenly. I am so going there tomorrow to get one.
And I would also like that tumbler too.
Oh man, I wish I had a garden! I had plans to grow kabocha squash, but I’m kind of intimidated so have been hesitant on starting. Maybe I should just try? Although, I feel like I’d suck at it.

Neil July 2, 2013 at 9:46 pm

I bought a KUHL shirt. It’s plaid. Blue (navy) and gray and black. I only ever wear black. Here is the reason – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoFbCaydiGE – dare you to listen :)

Ok, truth is, I can’t match colors. I was told once black matches everything.

I’m digging my Kuhl shirt.

Corrie Anne July 2, 2013 at 10:31 pm

Well, we had some potted herbs. And then my father-in-law accidentally broke the one that was surviving the best. Haha. We’re not meant to be gardeners. Makes me wish my mom lived closer because she has beautiful flowers! I just got one of those contigo water bottles you always talk about from Amazon today — can’t wait to try it out tomorrow.

Toronto Girl West July 2, 2013 at 10:41 pm

Totally loving: Yogurt – I’ve been having tummy issues but I can totally handle yogurt! :)

Grow: No garden for me (I live in a condo without a balcony) but if I did, I would love to grow tomatoes and oodles of herbs!!!!

Jan @ Sprouts n Squats July 3, 2013 at 12:30 am

We have an apartment and I’ve just planted some sunflower seeds and tomato seeds in a window sill potplant but I’m not that confident it will grow!

I wish we had those chobani flips here in Australia!! They look delicious :)

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish July 3, 2013 at 12:46 am

It’s been CRAZY hot in Boise, too! I tried to lay out today, but lasted approximately 3 minutes before the 108-degree temps forced we (and my sweaty betty body) back inside. Oof! Glad you’re enjoying the pool this year! I think I better follow your lead and find one to jump into, too; it’s been over a year since I last swam!

The chicken caesar sandwiches look delicious. Want! xoxo <3

Cancan July 3, 2013 at 5:34 am

Yes we have a garden and we just had a nice spinach and lettuce salad from our garden. Great for the kiddos.
I am loving cherries lately.

Happy 4th!

SweatyGirl July 3, 2013 at 5:41 am

I loooove Twin Peaks :-) big fan.

I’ve started watching Justified, which is way better than I expected.
I am loving green tea frappuccinos with soy from Starbs.
So summery and good and not too sweet!

MizFit July 3, 2013 at 5:46 am

HOW CUTE are those trouser shorts…
I need to see em to see if they are too too short short for a woman of my…age :-)

Tamara July 3, 2013 at 8:30 am

I was thinking the same thing, Miz! :D

Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen July 3, 2013 at 6:11 am

There are many things I could comment on, but I am going to say thank goodness there is someone else out there who has realized American Eagle isn’t just for tweens. [I say this after many slightly awkward moments with students involving the phrase, “OMG, Ms. Pember, I totally have those jeans!”

Krissie J @ Philly Nerd Girl July 3, 2013 at 6:26 am

I am lovin’ the beach! I’ll be heading down there ASAP when they tell us to leave work today! And your freckles are cute! :)

Amanda @ Pink Runner Girl July 3, 2013 at 6:40 am

That green tea sounds so refreshing! I have also been sucked in by Under the Dome. It’s such a strange show but I love it! You have great abs by the way haha.
I am loving this blog community lately!
I’m also totally loving greek yogurt in the mornings for breakfast. It’s been so hot that it hits the spot. (rhyming not intended)
Miley Cyrus’s new song has been on replay during my workouts too for some reason. I love it. It’s oddly entertaining!

Sophie @ life's philosophie July 3, 2013 at 7:30 am

I am loving this 4 day weekend coming up! Yay for holidays!
I have a “fresh herb garden” aka, a windowsill unit with three types of herbs (basil, parsley and mint). But I love it! Makes for some really good cocktails :)

the delicate place (@misathemeb) July 3, 2013 at 7:38 am

i love that tumbler from sbux, the herbs and those kale chips! right now we are just growing mint and parsley bc we are moving in a few weeks but next year we will have a crazy good garden!

LG July 3, 2013 at 8:02 am

I need those shorts.

Tamara July 3, 2013 at 8:28 am

What I’m loving:

Iced decaf Americanos (I posted about these a while ago and I’m still addicted. I bought a cold cup at Biggby’s (a local coffee chain) and may have to get one of those geometric ones from Starbucks, too!

Painting my fingernails. I never used to do it, but lately I’ve been really into it. Man, the upkeep is a pain, though. I still need to try the Jamberry nails I won in your giveaway!

SYTYCD. I absolutely ADORE this show and I can’t wait for it to come on every summer. The dancers and styles and costumes and music are just all a recipe for happy times. (Speaking of TV, Under the Dome is pretty darn good! We haven’t watched the second ep yet, but we’re liking it. And I can’t wait for The Bridge on FX. Looks creepy cool. Starts 7/10.)

I’d love to grow spinach. I sure do eat enough of it! I put it on toasted peanut butter sandwiches (as mentioned in my A to Z survey), for pete’s sake. I’m a bit of a freak for the greenery…

Nicole @ Fruit 'N' Fitness July 3, 2013 at 8:29 am

I love American eagle shorts! That’s a bummer about the failed green tea with a shot of peach. I’m going to have to try the tea lemonade with peach though, that sounds really good!

Annette@FitnessPerks July 3, 2013 at 11:01 am

I need to find key lime chobani!!

Lili July 3, 2013 at 11:13 am

Would u please tell me how much is membership at UR Gpp ? Do they have planet fitness in Salt lake at all ? It’s a small gym.. I’m moving to Murray in bout a month.. Don’t know many people there at all.. Also do they have lots of coffee shops and any healthy places to eat ? I’m from portland .. We talked before but I’m sure u talk to a ton of people.. Thanks in advance (:

Janetha July 3, 2013 at 1:13 pm

Hey! GPP is $100 a month, but it is not in SLC. It is about 20 minutes north in a town called Centerville. There are a few Planet Fitness locations in SLC! There are several coffee shops and healthy restaurants in SLC, too.. not so much in the suburbs (the only coffee shop in my town is Starbucks :( ) but SLC is fairly healthy! Not as far along as Portland, but we are getting there. Let me know when you are here, I’d love to meet up!

Liesl July 3, 2013 at 12:43 pm

I’m loving fresh herbs too! I have basil, thyme, rosemary, parsley, chives, and lavender all right outside my front door. Yeah, summer!

Megan @ Fiterature July 3, 2013 at 2:53 pm

Every time I try to make Kale chips, they either come out too soggy or burnt! What gives?!

I DO have a garden – this year we have green beans, 3 kinds of peppers, carrots, spinach, kale, greens, cilantro, strawberries, and tomatoes. We are trying topsy turveys for the first time with the tomatoes, and they work like a charm!!

Errign July 3, 2013 at 4:37 pm

We have coconut and key lime 6 oz chobani cups at my grocery store!

Linz @ Itz Linz July 4, 2013 at 6:24 am

we have a tomato garden! itz awesome because my father-in-law plants it every year and all we have to do is water it and reap the benefits! :) :)

Addy @ Six-Kick Switch July 4, 2013 at 1:27 pm

I am totally loving the heat – and ocean swims! My team has started training for the open water season and I love getting to start my morning at the beach!

Gena@BakeAllTheThings! July 4, 2013 at 3:14 pm

There’s a new tea place here that has an iced lemon ginger tea – sooooo good! What a *zing*!

My little herb garden has stayed alive for 2 weeks now – I’m thrilled as I kill everything. I’ve got lemon thyme, sweet basil, oregano and rosemary. It’s so much fun to clip fresh herbs for our meals!
