Eat Drink & Be Mary: Thin Mints, Baseball & Babies.


Thin Mints, Baseball & Babies.

As you're reading this I am on vacation (well sorta) with my Mom and a bunch of middle & high school girls.  May not sounds like your cup of tea, but I am super excited for the weekend ahead.  Another clogging competition weekend is here.  So without further adieu here are five things that I've been loving this past week... 

ONE -- Thin Mints 
Girl Scout cookies get me everytime, this time of year.  I just can't resist them, especially the thin mints.  I could down a sleeve of those bad boys in no time.  This recipe for Thin Mint Puppy Chow is the bomb, and if you love Thin Mints you'll love this.

TWO -- No-Reply Blogger
I have been receiving several comments lately from "no-reply" bloggers.  I wrote a post on this a while ago, but it basically means I can't reply to your comments via email (my preferred means of responding) & I hate that because I love connecting with my readers.  There is such an easy fix to this, check out Sarah's tutorial.  Then I can respond to your sweet selves. :)

THREE -- Baseball Love.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that ONE. my boyfriend & I finally celebrated Valentines day this past weekend and TWO. That my sweet baseball boyfriend is now a baseball coach.  That to say, for part of my Valentines gift, my boyfriend made me a bracelet out of the baseball laces, and I LOVE it.  Isn't it the cutest? Perfect if you have a baseball husband/boyfriend/son/etc.
Would y'all be interested in a tutorial on how to make these?

FOUR -- Cuteness Overload.
I got to see my adorable nephews & niece this week.  And boy, are they a handful.  Lucky for them they're beyond cute ;)


FIVE -- The Bachelor {season finale}
I've mentioned before that I love watching the Bachelor.  Reality shows are my guilty pleasure, and getting to laugh along the ridiculousness is just pure fun.  But on the first episode of this season I predicted the final three.  Two outta three ain't bad & Chelsea was in the top 5.  #winning Will any of y'all be watching the finale?

Have a great weekend loves!
