Time for another round of my latest obsessions + confessions! Ready? I know I am!
It's fall, it's fall! Fall means apples. But wait, apple cider in margarita form? Pinch me please.
Speaking of apple.... these Apple Cinnamon Pretzel Bites with Caramel Dipping Sauce are like the best thing since sliced bread. Actually, sliced bread is pretty lame compared to these.
This soup = the epitome of fall.
If I were on death row, this would be part of my last meal... Smothered Sweet Potato Fries!
It is fall and all, but I can't lie, I'm still dreaming of sangrias and ice cream.
Since it's fall, that officially means it's pumpkin season! I'm weird... when it comes to pumpkin, sometimes I love it, sometimes not so much. But lately I've been bookmarking all things pumpkin. I plan on doing a pumpkin roundup here soon :)
WHO lives like this??? And WHOSE husband does this??? #fairytalereallife
My dream sanctuary.
What I Instagrammed vs What Was Really Happening. Ha I can definitely relate.
Lovin this photo editing app! It's one of the best I've used, not that
I've used a lot. But it's so helpful for when I unfortunately have to
take orange yucky dimly lit food photos in restaurants... it can turn
them into decent pics and remove all that orange and add some exposure.
So glad I found you.
This just made my life. DWTS meets Fresh Prince. Whoever made this happen, thank you. We all thank you.
Personally, I've been going through some things lately. Last week I lost a good friend to suicide, and my cousin to an overdose. Both only 28 years old. Life is so hard sometimes. So needless to say, I've been doing a lot of grieving lately. Please please please, if you know anyone struggling with depression - try to reach out, get them professional help, be there. We need to stop the stigma associated with mental illness so people won't be so hesitant to reach out and ask for help when they need it. Obviously, depression and suicide are much more complicated than that but I just wanted to put that out there. Same goes for addiction. Death is tragic enough, but when it comes so unexpectedly, to young people who have full lives ahead of them and it wasn't necessarily their time, it just amplifies that pain. I'll never forget my dear friend, Ben. And I'll NEVER forget my little cousin Dustin, who I was lucky enough to have shared so many years of my life with. Some of my favorite childhood memories are because of him. I'll see them again one day....
I hope to get back in my recipe-posting groove. But let's face it, ever since I went back to school, the blog has took a hit and I'm not posting as often. I hope to get back to posting recipes, restaurant reviews, and of course these obsessions + confessions posts.
How are all of you lovelies doing?! I'll be by your blogs eventually to get caught up!
Peace, and bacon grease!
