Awesome in August

I spent the first three weeks of August in my house. July was so outrageously awesome that I needed a bit of a break from life. My bank account appreciated the break as well. I watched the Olympics non-stop and loved every minute of it. Michael Phelps was awesome, Katie Ledecky blew up the world, Mo Farah might be the nicest man ever born, and Simone Biles is basically a god. I can’t wait for the Winter Games in Korea. I’m thinking figure skating, snowboarding, and non-stop hot chocolate. What were your favorite Olympic moments?

Howlin Wolf3

We also went back to Howlin’ Wolf this month and had more great cocktails and totally awesome food. I think it might be becoming my favorite. I can also recommend the milkshakes at Byron Burgers. 

I’ve been watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on Netflix, and I can’t decide if I like it or not. Rebecca is a terrible person, but Greg is exactly my kind of funny. The theatre kid in me can’t look away from a musical. Also, I was an assistant teacher in Santino Fontana’s tap class when I was in high school and he was like eight years old, so I’m pretty sure I’m at least partially responsible for that Fred Astaire number he did in episode 4.

I’ve been dying to eat the internet. Most especially, I’d like to eat Snickerdoodle Muffins, S’mores Ice Cream Cake, and Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies. Clearly I need to start jogging.

Brazilian Sunrise Cocktail from Awesome on 20

Your favorite recipes this month were Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels, Chicken Parmesan, and Brazilian Sunrise Cocktails. Clearly I wasn’t the only one wishing I was in Rio.

I’m happy to have escaped the house again. Adventures await. It’s gonna be awesome!
