Things That Thrill Me

It’s always fun to get a behind-the-scenes look at popular blogger’s and female entrepreneur’s offices to see where they work and keep motivated on a daily basis.

Frozen mint chocolate chip pie – do I really need to say anything more?

It’s no secret that I, and pretty much all of us, love anything chambray – this blouse from Madewell looks perfect for summer and is styled perfectly.

Summer salads that include fresh fruit are typically my go-to for lunch these days – this recipe that includes a side of fried goat cheese balls just takes that to a whole other level.

Amanda shared a great, quick workout that’s easy to squeeze in in the mornings when you’re pressed for time.

If you’re a fan of Fixer Upper, I came across the Etsy shop that they purchase a lot of their signs from – I pretty much want one of each for every room in the house.

I’m determined to have the stairway wall decorated before the end of the summer, and I absolutely love this rustic all-white wall for inspiration.

How chic are these DIY marbled clay ring dishes?! These would be perfect anywhere in the house to catch jewelry or little trinkets.

We love to bake or grill zucchini, especially when we can get it
fresh at the farmer’s market or a local produce farm stand – I can’t
wait to try this version that involves some good ol’ Parmesan cheese.

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
