The Ranch, which gives a great inside look at all of the gymnasts, so I was thrilled to see who ended up making the team! I'm hoping more gold is in Team USA's future!
Well, guys, it's officially sales season! Earlier this week was the annual Prime Day on Amazon, and I decided to buy a Hammock! It's always been a silly dream of mine to sit on my back deck, sipping a glass of wine, listening to jazz music while swaying in a hammock. Now that dream can be a reality and I'm super excited about it! I'll be sure to report back as soon as the hammock comes in.
Nordstrom also just started early access to their Anniversary Sale! I've never shopped it before, but I need to pick up some staples after going six months in a no buy. Here's what's on my wish list (including some things that I will never buy, but a girl can dream...right?
Kate Spade Stud Earrings : I don't wear earrings very often, but these are so gorgeous!
Rails Plaid Shirt : I have a few cheap plaid shirts, but I've been lusting after this one for the past year! I've seen a few people wearing it, and they all rave about the quality. It looks really cozy and I feel like it would be a staple in the fall!
Billabong Plaid Shirt : For a more budget-friendly option, I love this flannel from Billabong!
Joe's Curvy Skinny Jeans : Skinny jeans are a staple in my wardrobe, and I don't really have any high quality pairs! The majority of the ones I wear now are from Forever 21 that stretch out after one use, so I think it's time to get a better quality pair that will last for years. These look promising, but I'll have to try them on in person to see how they fit!
Walnut Grill DinnerWalnut Grill! There are a few locations around the Pittsburgh area, but this was the first time that we went. Ever since Dan moved to Pittsburgh three years ago, we haven't really gone on "dates" very often. I decided we should make an effort to have monthly dates, where we take turns planning something special.
This month was my turn, and I chose to go to the Walnut Grill on their half-priced wine night. We split a bottle of Peach wine from the local Narcisi Winery, and had delicious meals! It was a great night and I can't wait to see what he plans next month! On the way back, we noticed this gorgeous sunset, and I had to take a picture:
UN-Favorite : Pokemon GoI apologize to any die-hard Pokemon Go fans out there, but I hate this game! I think it's great that people are getting out and exercising, but all I see when I go for a lunchtime walk is people staring down at their phones (sometimes walking into things) and not paying attention to anything else. Everyone on my team at work plays and talks about it a lot, and I feel like I'm the only person in the United States right now that can't get into it. The more people talk about it, the less I want to download it! What do you all think? Are you Pokemon GO or Pokemon NO!?
What is your favorite Olympic sport?
Are you going to shop the Nordstrom Sale? Get anything with Amazon?
Are you into Pokemon Go? I promise- we can still be friends if you are :)
