Random Picture Post: Non-Waxy Photos From the Last Few Weeks #11!

(Boring) Life update!
-Josh and I have been cooking all sorts of cool stuff this summer. We have been grilling again and loving it. Do you have any cool recipes you'd like to share?
-We've also been going to A TON of movies! Come check out our reviews on Lolo Loves Films!, we're doing a giveaway once we hit 100 Facebook likes!
-Manis on manis on manis.
-I was sick last week and couldn't melt anything, which sucked big time, but slowed my looking for/purchasing of unnecessary wax. My sense of smell still isn't 100% back yet.
-We saw my niece and nephew last weekend and had a blast making s'mores and watching the UFC. Good summer times!
-My brand new car already has a dent and scratch because some butt-head hit it and left, no note. I hope karma f**ks you up royally, whoever you are. Seriously.

How are you all doing? I hope you're ready to see lots of photos because I have been taking tons.
I hate to be one of those pet owners, but seriously, I have the best dog in the world. He provides us with an endless source of entertainment, even when he doesn't know he's doing it. Look how cute he is sleeping under the blanket!! LOOK!!!
Do you have a Trader Joe's near you? If so, run, don't walk, and pick this cold brew coffee concentrate up immediately. It is fan-freaking-tastic! We don't typically buy coffee beans (we opt for K-Cups since we have a Keurig and found a brand we like), but every once in a while, I want some iced coffee without having to drive all the way (read: down the street, LOL) to Starbucks (read: corporate whores). This stuff is strong, tasty, and really smooth.
Speaking of corporate whores, I go through phases where I do and don't want to go to Starbucks. I recently stumbled upon Better Buzz Coffee in Pacific Beach and I am obsessed. Their java is so, so good! Unfortunately, it's not the closest place in the world, so we don't go that often, but I look forward to when we do! This drink is called "The Best Drink Ever," and seriously, how can you pass this up if it has that name?!
Two weeks ago, we were at the Starbucks drive-thru (before I stopped going) and the gal in front of the silver car was texting the. entire. time. she was in the drive-thru. In fact, it wasn't until the silver car in the photo honked at her that we all moved up, about 1 minutes after someone had left. Well, she was so busy texting that she paid and drove off without her drink, but drove away still texting. She parked her car, got out, walked over to the drive-thru window (NOT THE INSIDE OF STARBUCKS LIKE A NORMAL PERSON) and pushed in front of the silver car while STILL TEXTING and grabbed her drink and walked away...while still texting. I don't want to be one of those "It Can Wait" promotional commercials, but good lord, HOLD OFF. I may or may not have rolled up my window in the off chance that I'd be shanked. Anywho, this ends the coffee section of my photo post.
This recipe is one of the greatest things I have ever made. Ever. It's called supreme strawberry topping and it's ridiculously easy to make. Take a basket of strawberries, cut them into smaller pieces, add 1/3 c. sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla into a saucepan and simmer on medium-high heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and mashing the strawberries occasionally to let out their juices. Let me tell you, the end result is magnificent. YUM.
Got the mail the other day and saw two June Bugs doin' it. I snickered. Yes, I'm also 6 years old. I also took a picture, but then felt bad about it because I was infringing on their private time....oh well, #SorryBoutIt.
As I mentioned before, summer means backyard bonfires! We had some friends over and made ourselves a nice little fire, complete with s'mores and drinks. It was a ton of fun! Summer is also a good excuse to turn on the patio lights and sit outside and read. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. :)
Have I mentioned lately that I love KBShimmer? Well, I do, and I have finally been doing my manicures with her polishes more! From top to bottom photo, we have: Partners in Lime (one of the best, coolest textured polishes I've ever used) Scribble Me This (looks like something out of the 80's) over You're So Shellfish (a fantastic sunsetty orangeish), Belle of the Mall (a super awesome pinkish/reddish jelly), and U Rock My Heart on top of Let's Not Coral. She has a couple more colors coming out in the end of summer and I am looking forward to rockin' those as well!
My happy little guy loves riding in the car. <3

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods, and I hope you're having a great summer!

    Love your pup! He is too cute. And your manis have been really cool too. Got me KBShimmer hooked. Hopefully the book you have been reading is good!!! }
