ONE | Sriracha Documentary
This idea would be perfect for an at-home date night or a little get-together with friends (bonus points if you have a hot sauce themed menu!) This came up on a list I was reading the other week of food documentaries you should watch. Available on Amazon Prime, Josh and I pulled it up and both loved it! I’ve always been a Sriracha fan, but it was fun to see how it became a trend and what a high quality product it really is. Sriracha Lime Popcorn would be the perfect thing for snacking while viewing! (Photo from here – this also looks like a few good recipes.)
TWO | Crushed Ice and Foam Cups
Survival of a Southern summer. Considering that my AC has been out all weekend and is currently getting worked on, it was 86 degrees ALL NIGHT LONG, consider this my best advice for August in the deep south. Last summer, when I was pregnant with HMW and barely functioning due to (what I am convinced was) undiagnosed Hyperemesis Gravidarum, I would eat cups and cups of crushed ice from Zaxby’s, Chick-fil-a and a myriad of other fine southern dining establishments. The combination with the foam cup is like nothing else. Perfection! Someday I dream of having two ridiculously fancy upgrades in my kitchen, a pellet ice machine and a sparkling water tap. Go ahead and judge me. I’ll just be over here with my monogrammed foam cups!
This combination bubble bath and shower gel is my current favorite. With 24/7 caring for Little Hugo and frequent breastfeeding, I carry all of my stress in my shoulders causing muscle aches AND, every mom to ever come before me, I have a hard time winding down. Josh is really sweet to make me chill out most nights and enjoy a bubble bath and actually read through a magazine. I also use it every time I shower because I love the smell!
FOUR | NYX Butter Gloss
- I was on a brief hunt this summer for a popsicle-y lip stain color, but after several attempts I gave up. My sister Brooke mentioned she’d bought these after a blogger recommendation so I got myself over to Target and bought the Vanilla Cream Pie (mauve pink) and Creme Brûlée (nude-ish pink). They’re under $5 each and have a light glossy finish and soft color, no smudging! Target has a buy one get one 50% off deal right now, so go ahead and get yourself a few different colors. YES! MA’AM! THEY ARE THAT GOOD!
FIVE | Wild Caught Fish Sandwich
I apologize in advance for posting such an unappetizing photo of this great product. I bought a package of 12 burgers last time I was at Costco to try and have been so impressed. They make such a delicious quick lunch or after-workout dinner. You can grill, use a skillet or (I just discovered) pop them in the oven! I’ve served them in a lettuce wrap with Sriracha mayo and as a healthy-ish “filet-o-fish” on a gluten free bun I also recommend topping them with a little slaw!
