life lately

lifelatelyThere's something about the warm weather and longer days that makes sitting down in front of a computer increasingly more difficult after work. Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere! But, if you're ever wondering what I'm up to...be sure to follow me on instagram.

So, what's been going on lately? Well, my parents moved back to the mid-west from Northern California. Although I'm going to miss visiting the bay area (aka all that wine), it is amazing to have them just a short two hours away. They came down for the day a couple of weeks ago and Steve and I took him to Churchill Downs for the first time. We didn't win anything but we had a great time people watching and cheering on our (losing) horses.

This breakfast has been on serious repeat lately. I've been trying to recreate an amazing breakfast that I had at The Tavern in Nashville. Honey Greek yogurt and KIND granola comes pretty close!

We spent the 4th of July in Chicago this past weekend and we had an amazing time. The Chicago weather typically throws a fit anytime I decide to come into town, but thankfully it finally started to cooperate. Both my brother and Steve's sister live in the city which makes visiting the city even more fun. We met up at Bub CIty in River North and it's officially my new favorite bar in Chicago. Country music, great decor and a great selection of beer and bourbon is all it takes to please this girl :).

Hope you all can forgive me for being a bit absent lately!
