May Favorites

It's official, I may be the worst blogger in the history of bloggers, ever.
But let me tell y'all, recovering from a wedding and trying to get back to normal life after a honeymoon is harder than it sounds!
Plus our house is a wreck, my birthday was Saturday, and I start summer classes next week so I've been constantly running around.

Today I'm trying to play catch up and share with y'all just a few of the things I was loving last month...even though it's halfway through June.

Don't judge.


This isn't my picture, but I thought I took a picture of this snack that was my favorite the whole month of May, but somehow I can't find it.
All month long I was snacking somewhat healthy which included not having ice cream and whatnot for dessert, but having Greek yogurt with honey (from my parent's hive!) and frozen berries.
It's an inexpensive snack and tastes wayyyy better than ice cream anyways.


I have read several books this summer which has been so nice, because during the school year I spend all my time doing reading for school.
This book was the perfect summer pool read.
It's basically about a girl who travels with a family to nanny their youngest son.
While traveling with the family, she meets their older son and they actually become shipwrecked on an island together.
This leads to them falling in love...and well, you'll just have to read the book for the full story!
It's a little cliche, but in a way that will kind of make you smile :)

Mint EOS is heaven on your lips, just in case you were wondering.
Summer dries my lips out in a bad kind of way and so in preparation for the wedding I was exfoliating and doing everything I could for smooth lips.
EOS was the one thing I knew I could keep on me to keep my lips moisturized around the clock.
(Chris loves them too!...the lip product, not my lips...well, you get the picture)

Television Show


It's no secret that I love all Shonda Rhimes shows, but y'all she is awful.
Grey's Anatomy has been one of my favorites for a long time but this season finale was so, so sad.
I won't be leaving the show though, because I just have to watch the train wreck from beginning to end.
There's something that just pulls you in even though you don't want to like it.


Girl Crush by Little Big Town

Everyone thinks this song is about lesbians.
Newsflash, it isn't.

I love the lyrics and the emotion that they convey in this song.
It's really moving and in my head, it sounds almost like a wife who's being cheated on.
Give it a listen and don't jump to conclusions just because of the title!

It Feels Good by Drake White

I first heard Drake several years ago at a Brantley Gilbert/Justin Moore concert in Auburn & he was great then.
His music has come a long way and I love the almost blue-sy vibe of this song.
There's just something about it that makes you smile and maybe even bust a move in the bathroom while singing into a hairbrush...not that I've personally done that or anything.

I hope y'all enjoyed this handful of favorites from the month of May.
I know I should've had them up a long time ago, but I hope y'all can forgive me!

Until next time. . .
