Hi guys!

The kids are back in school! How excited are you?!

I’m more excited that I’ve ever been in my life.

I’m going back to yoga! I’m taking the dog paddleboarding! I’m gonna take my butt back to bed after I drop them off at least once a week!

And I’m most excited to get back to hiking if Texas ever cools down. I checked my weather app on the way to football practice last night and it said it felt like 108.

108.

Texas. Stop it.

Also, why did my kid want to play football in August in Texas? It’s 108 degrees and he’s running around in full pads for a couple hours a day.

No thanks.

Important life update: I’m into brothy soups now.

I, for my entire life, have been a thick soup person.

You know, a squash soup. Or a chicken and rice soup. Or even a broccoli cheddar.

I didn’t like anything brothy.

And then I became obsessed with pho a few years ago and it was my gateway to other spicy brothy soups and now I literally drink bone broth with a ton of sriracha from a coffee mug every morning of my life.

Why am I obsessed with broth?

Can you believe its time to talk about back to school already?

We still have about a week and a half of summer left but all my friends from home are already sending their kids to school! Crazy!

We have started our fall activities though, which means we have football practice 3 nights a week, the littles have gymnastics, and we start soccer any day now.

I’m honestly not sure how I’m going to pull it all off this fall.

Ginger Peach Ice Cream – creamy ice cream with fresh peaches, ginger, and chopped gingersnap cookies! 

Ginger Peach Ice Cream - creamy ice cream with fresh peaches, ginger, and chopped gingersnap cookies!

I had the worst cold last month.

It lasted for weeks, I had to sleep sitting up, and I went through more cold medicine than I’ve taken in my entire life.

It was awful.

Anyway, I was taking Nyquil so that I wouldn’t cough my lungs up all night and Nyquil always makes me have really crazy, vivid dreams.

The kind of dreams where you wake up mad at your boyfriend because of something he did in your dreams and then you start an actual argument with him over it.

You know?

Well one of those dreams was about peach ice cream and I’ve been thinking about peach ice cream ever since.

Okay, hi.

I know.

Butternut squash in July.

I couldn’t wait any longer. Plus, I kinda feel like butternut squash has become more acceptable all year. I buy spiralized butternut squash every week of my life. So yeah, we’re going with squash in July.

Plus, Texas has been so miserably hot this summer that I’m actually ready for fall.

I’m never ready for summer to end so you know it’s bad.
