Currently Crushing On.

First off, thank you all for the kind words and prayers for my family regarding the loss of my grandparents. This summer has been a very trying season for us losing such strong foundations of our family so close together. I know they are both rejoicing in heaven together and am blessed to have them watching over me.

Alright, let's get to today's post.  I'm sharing a few of my favorite finds from Pinterest and around the web.  You have to check out these delicious salads and hilarious video. I hope you enjoy!

Favorite Eats

This Kardashian inspired salad.  Sliced chicken breast, mozzarella, tomatoes, sprouts, avocado and sunflower seeds. Delish!

I have been hesitant to buy a spiralizer as I feel like it is such a one purpose tool. However, this post has me re-thinking my stance.

I made some delicious cake mix bars last week for work with a few creative changes. They were a huge hit and everyone wanted the recipe. I can't wait to share the recipe with you next week!

Fitness Favs

This video perfectly sums up my feeling toward workouts currently. Check out Buzz Feed Violet. It is my new favorite channel.

Also, these workout hacks feature some old favorites that I had forgotten. Love the idea of squeezing in some upper body strength during my favorite TV show.

Fall Ideas

I have already seen tons of fall essentials roundups popping up on the web.  Some of my favorites have been Design Darling and this one from Glamour.  Honestly, I am ready for a bit cooler weather.

Are you ready for fall or do you want summer to stay around a bit longer? 
In NC, we are stuck with summer for at least 4 more weeks. We still are experiencing highs in the 90s!

  1. Spiralizers are fabulous. You can find cheap, dependable ones at Bed Bath and Beyond or go for the bigger versions if you find you love it. I use mine for zoodles and stuff, but want to get more of a heavy duty one for sweet potatoes.

    Those cake bars look delicious!

  2. Go for the spiralizer! It is so worth it! We make zoodles all the time (I recommend patting/squeezing them dry with paper towels to make your sauce not runny!

  3. I'm so ready for the fall. It's my favorite season. That salad looks amazing, I'll definitely try it out.

  4. I felt the same way about the spiralizer so it took me a while to get one. I did, and its awesome! I now wish I'd gotten the better version because it's tiring to spiralize zoodles after a while in the pencil sharpener like one. I highly recommend it tho! Love doodle dishes!
    I'm definitely ok with summer for a bit longer. I don't want to go back to work! haha.

  5. YES to Fall! Bring it on! I'll have to try those cake mix bars! Thanks for linking up today! xo

  6. That salad sounds delish! So ready for Fall as well :)
