Ten on Tuesday [No.18]

Happy First of August! I know I seem to say this every single week, but I still cannot believe how quickly this summer has flown by-it seems as though May just got here yesterday!
Is there anything better in the summertime than a light, fresh salad as a light lunch or snack? I think not!
I cut up fresh garden-grown tomatoes & seasoned them lightly with Greek seasoning, topped that with feta cheese, fresh greens, walnuts, and dried cranberries-no dressing needed, this salad was already packed with flavor!

The official countdown is on until we leave for Nashville & I couldn't be more excited!
I can't wait to visit some of our favorites (mentioned here in my Nashville Travel Guide) and find some new faves as well! If you have any suggestions for Nashville-please leave them below, I'm always looking for new places to eat, visit, etc.

I have a new guilty's Pretty Little Liars!
I tried to watch the show back when it started on TV & I just couldn't get into it-it was creepy & I honestly didn't watch too much TV in high school.
But now that it's on Netflix & I can have it on while I'm folding laundry, putting away dishes, etc. I love it!
I've also been watching Chicago Justice and Nashville on Hulu, since I wrapped up the current seasons of Heartland & Blue Bloods!

Have you checked out last Saturday's post?
It was my Summer Book Review & I shared the four books I've been reading since my Spring Book Review and I really liked all of them, for different reasons.
I can't wait to finish the one I'm currently reading and I just ordered this one from Amazon.

That's good news for me because as it gets cooler outside here in Alabama (the past two days have felt like pre-Fall & I'm so excited!) I'm going to start walking at our park and in our neighborhood again.

After taking a many-month-long hiatus from the Target Beauty Box I finally picked up the August edition because I was planning on purchasing the deodorant that comes in it anyway for $4 and the box was only $7.
I have loved getting these in the past & I highly suggest picking this one up-it looks like it's got a lot of great goodies inside!

If you're as excited as I am about the upcoming Fall, check out these 15 quotes to get you into the Fall spirit!

Emily just wrote a great post on Creative Ways to Save Money for Travel and I absolutely love her ideas, especially since we're getting into the cooler months, which is my favorite time of the year to travel!

I was really, really bad with my June Goals and I never even attempted a July I'm thinking I really need to start fresh with an August Goal list for this Saturday's post...what do y'all think?
The things I did accomplish for my June Goals?
-I did work on a Shutterfly book, but I want it to be perfect & not rushed, so I'm taking my time working on it.
-I did increase my instagram following, but I'm not quite at 950 yet! 
-I did enjoy my birthday month & celebrating birthdays for my mom & sister, and Father's Day with my daddy as well!

One of my parent's sweet neighbors brought them a sack of home-grown peaches & y'all best bet that I brought some of those babies home with me.
I had one last night & they are the juiciest, sweetest peaches-I'm obsessed & think they would be amazing in some ice cream!

Well that's all for this week-hope you enjoyed!
Let me know below what you're up to this week :)

Until next time. . .


  1. Sounds like an awesome week! Super pumped to learn that walking can be better than running because I love to walk but let me tell you running is not my thing. I danced for 15 years and that was not kind to my joints. I'm leaving for a family vacation to Disney World this week and I am so excited!
