Ryan and I love sampling local beer. I saw this brew a month ago and have been waiting for the perfect time to try them out. Tonight is my second night not working and at home in the past two weeks, so there was no time like tonight. We liked both Capital Brewery’s Lake House and Island Wheat. I added a flower from our backyard! Perfect.

Saw this in the parking lot of Walgreens. Truth!

The flavor of this pasta salad was awesome! It was so unique; the fresh garlic and basil along with pine nuts gave this pasta dish a flavor all its own. Ry and I decided we might add some chicken next time for some extra summtin’ summtin’…;)

{#4-All Trails App}

So the picture above is how I spent more time than I care to admit (hours) planning my runs for while we are on vacation for two weeks. While for some this might be a waste of time, it is the best guarantee I have for completing some high mileage weeks in deathly hot conditions, and increases the chances of running in some awesome locations. Plus, I LOVE running in new places, exploring new trails, and seeing new things. I’m giddy just thinking about it. Knowing where I’m completing each run, what the terrain will be like, and how to get there takes all of the guess work out of running while on vacation. Definitely worth it if you want to get your runs in. Check the All Trails app out for your phone which will find your location and tell you about nearby trails. You can also use their website after becoming a member. It is my go to for finding trails at home and on vacation.

{#5-Popsicles}

Summertime and warm weather mean popsicles. I mean who doesn’t like them; even the cast on Mad Men said so! I’d been looking for the perfect popsicles containers and I believe I’ve found them. I will be posting all about popsicles in a separate post because I try to keep Friday’s short. Today’s flavor, we will call Lime Berry, included blended strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries (3.5 cups), greek strawberry yogurt (1.5 cups), and fresh squeezed lime juice (from 1 lime). Cheaper than buying them in the store and way healthier, too.

What do you do in the summer to stay cool?

Happy Weekend!
