It's the end of August, guys. Cray. The past couple of months haven't been super exciting, but there have been a few niceties here and there.
Drinking: Starbucks’ Caramel Iced Coffee VIAs. Since I don’t get to Starbucks as much as I used to, I’ve really been enjoying the convenience of using these at home. A box of 6 packets is about $6, more or less, but it’s actually cheaper than buying 6 grande or venti iced coffees in the store. And since you add your own water and milk, it’s exactly how you want it, which to me is a win. I've seen a lot of coupons for them as well in the weekly paper, and popping out at Target.
Eating: Altoids Arctic Peppermint mints. Well, I wouldn’t consider them a snack, but these little mints really pack quite a punch. They’re really great after meals, plus they open your sinuses in an instant. Not exactly their number 1 selling point, I'm sure, but still good.
Listening to: Ingrid Michaelson - Lights Out.
Loving: Slow-motion video on the iPhone 5s. Don’t judge me, but it’s hilarious. I don’t know why, but it’s hilarious.
Not loving: Technology. I guess that kind of contradicts my love for slow-motion video, huh? But when the internet at your house is down, and Final Cut Pro doesn’t work at the office, and you can’t find the right DVD to burn a file onto, it gets kind of old. Let’s just go back to dial up and VCRs, huh?
(Okay, so let’s not…)
Watching: Deadliest Catch. Yup. Love it. I’ve been watching Deadliest Catch for years now, and while I missed last season, this season is reeling me in (Heh. Get it? Reel? Fishing? Okay...). I can’t really say exactly what it is that keeps me so entertained, but I love it. I’m especially fond of the F/V Northwestern and F/V Cape Caution.
Wearing: Dresses and skirts. It’s been pretty hot and humid lately, so pants just really aren’t cutting it. Comfy, casual dresses from Target are really nice, and I’ve been especially loving dresses and skirts from the Loft. They’re cute and comfortable, and the best thing about them??? They have pockets!!!!!! Talk about a girl’s best friend.
What about you guys? Anything exciting from August you want to share?
