Stirring// up a batch of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. My grandmother used to make these cookies when I was a little girl. My aunts passed down some of our families favorite recipes at my wedding shower 10+ years ago; it is one of my favorite cookbooks to bake and cook from!  Some days just call for a chocolate chip cookie, or at least a scoop of cookie dough!

Sprucing// myself up at my hair appointment last week. It was time for a change, so I went with some summer highlights. I am not usually one to color my hair, as I am plain jane...but I went for it. It's a little bold for me, but I'm learning to like it!

Searching// for my parents dog Copper. He ran off after a walk last Thursday night and has been  missing since. We searched with my parents on Friday and Saturday evening over the weekend, with no luck. Praying he shows up soon!    
^^^^UPDATE: Copper has been found!!! Thank the lord for farmers!^^^^

<This was one of the beautiful bridges I hiked across looking for Copper.>

Watching// my little man enjoy his early birthday present. We drove almost 2 hours on Saturday to pick up his new four-wheeler.  He hasn't wanted to get off of it since we brought it home! He is all boy and ready to get dirty. Thankfully, grandparents and relatives are chipping in for his birthday too!! ha

Celebrating// my husband's grandpa's 89th birthday this past weekend! He is one of the most hilarious men I know. We are so thankful we were able to celebrate his big day with him! 

Following// along with my favorite blogger Emily at Jones Design Co on their 3 month summer adventure across the United States. I love seeing her posts on Instagram every day and reading her posts on the blog. What an amazing experience for her family & I am loving reading all about it!
