It is so hard to believe that summer is getting ready to come to an end. Ok, so we have about a month left but I have to say this has been such a wonderful summer!

Here are a few of my favorite times of the summer so far:

Wes’ Graduation from Medical School

Moving to Virginia

Our First Trip Back to the Beach in 4 Years

Billy Currington Concert

Celebrating our 3rd Wedding Anniversary

July 4th at the Beach with a Hurricane

Completing My 10k Training

A Delayed Graduation Celebration with Friends and Family

Adding Piper to the Family

Began Marathon Training

Found a New Job

Looking back after the fact you realize just how blessed and awesome your summer was. So many great things happened and so many wonderful memories were made!

I recently partnered with Balance Bar and Walmart in their Summer shape up campaign! To me summer is all about friends and family, and finding ways to enjoy the beautiful weather together.


One day a couple weeks ago I headed over to our local Walmart to check out their Balance Bars as well as some other fun items to help enjoy summer a little bit more!

Balance Bar Selection

They had a great selection of Balance Bars there, but I was first drawn to my absolute favorite flavor, peanut butter.

Peanut Butter

The great thing about this flavor is that it is simple and easy to eat. It doesn’t mess with my stomach and is delicious!

I also picked up this beauty as well to try something different. Lets just say I wasn’t dissapointed!

Dark Chocolate almond

Dark Chocolate Coconut. This bar sums up all of my favorite flavors into one!

On top of that, I also added some delicious fresh veggies and fruits to my cart. One of my favorite things to do during these warm months is to sit outside and eat dinner with my husband at the end of the day. Not only does it help us both to relax and unwind at the end of the day, but when you add it fresh fruits and veggies it makes it even more delicious!

Fun Dinners

Summer really encourages me to eat better. With all the fresh items it makes dinner time so much more fun and delicious! My husband and I have tried out more new recipes this summer than ever before!

If you notice every single memorable moment this summer has involved people. To me, there is no substitution for family and friends.

Time Together

After 4 years apart this summer has been so special. Sure, we have tough times ahead but I wouldn’t trade one moment of it for the world. I’m right where I want to be. We are happy, healthy and enjoying the beauty of each warm summer day!

What is your favorite part of summer?

Tell me the best thing you did this summer!
