Monthly Rewind {August 2015}

Saturday, September 5, 2015

Happy College Football!!!

I can't believe August is already over! Where is 2015 going? August was a great month in our house. We saw several movies - Vacation (hilarious), Mission Impossible (fantastic), and The Gift (not my favorite).

We took Fluffy to the vet and found out that she has high blood pressure. She is taking some medicine to get it under control. We were worried about giving a cat a pill every day. We've been wrapping the pill in some cheese. So far, so good!

There was lots of fun traveling in August. I went to Nashville for a Martha White Baking Retreat. It was SO much fun! Chicken Legs and I took a weekend trip to Atlanta, and I went to Vegas with some girlfriends. Recap coming next week!

September is a big month for us.
We are also going on our very first cruise!
We are going on an 8-day Eastern Caribbean Cruise with Carnival.
We port in St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan, and Grand Turk.

Any tips for a first-timer?

I am in love with this cheese!
I sampled it when I spoke at the Food & Wine Conference in Orlando in July.
I found it at Publix. (I haven't looked for it at Walmart.)
I love to eat it with a few crackers for an afternoon snack.

New Game App

My Mom introduced us to a new addicting game - WordTumble.
We downloaded the Free version from the AppStore.
We are both officially addicted!

New Kitchen Gadget
I am in love with these measuring cups from OXO.
I got them at Amazon and they are fantastic. 
They are perfect for measuring sticky stuff like peanut butter, honey, corn syrup. 
I also use them for measuring mayonnaise. 
They can measure solids and liquids. I actually use them for almost everything.

I've had the Pampered Chef version forever. 
They started getting hard to unassembled and assemble for washing. 
Chicken Legs requested I get new ones. 

I decided to go with these OXO measuring cups and I love them!
I just ordered the 1-cup version today.

  1. One tip I have for your cruise is to plan to arrive at the town you're leaving from at least a day in advance. That way if your flight is delayed/cancelled you won't miss the ship, and if your luggage is delayed, you're more likely to get it before you board the ship. I've been on 3 cruises (Greek Isles, Tahiti and Prague-Budapest), and my luggage was delayed for 2 of them, arriving just in time before the ship left the port. Have fun!
