Hello! How was your weekend? My weekend was full of quality time with my family and fireworks and food. Sadly, my aunt passed away very early on the fourth of July . She was my dad’s sister and watched me when I was a baby when my mom went back to work. One time she told me she used to take me to Denny’s a lot. I don’t remember it, but that might explain my deep love of pancakes.
She had cancer and was in a lot of pain, so I’m glad she’s in Heaven and at peace now. It’s just so so sad to see my family hurting. We knew it was going to be soon which is part of the reason I went to go see her on Wednesday. But you never know how fast something like this will happen and it really does help to believe she’s dancing from above watching over her family.
Since that had just happened and my mom and dad got no sleep the night before our fourth of July was super low key this year. My brother, cousin and I just sat around eating and dipping in the pool and comforting the dogs. The illegal fireworks game is crazy around here and they were going off all day.
We picked avocados and I found this funny bag in my mom’s bag drawer! I don’t know why we thought this was so funny, but I insisted on wearing it most of the day.
My dad made jalapeno poppers from scratch and cooked them up before he went to make food deliveries to my other fam. Ben was super excited about them.
All I contributed to this lil bbq was an apple pie and ice cream. I totally cheated and went the store bought route, but it was delicious heated up and served with ice cream.
And I relaxed with the Roxican
This morning Ben and I went back to our old Sunday morning tradition of walking to get coffee. We found a new to us coffee place called Kona Coffee in Lake Forest.
I saw the bullet proof sign, but that’s not my jam so I ignored it. I ordered an iced coffee and shared a piece of Paleo Banana Bread with B.
But, I made the mistake of mentioning what Bulletproof coffee was to Ben and he had to get it. He was so intrigued by this weird drink. (Bulletproof coffee is coffee blended with butter and oil.)
And yes, I tried it. And it’s not bad but it’s not great. It doesn’t have any sugar and I like my coffee sweet. It is creamy and smooth, but I just couldn’t get over the idea that it had so much fat in it after I had just enjoyed a lovely pastry that I’m sure had a fair amount of healthy fats. So yeah, wouldn’t get it myself.

The rest of the day was spent trying to do a capsule wardrobe. It seriously took my entire day!! And Vegas didn’t help at all. More on that later!
