1. World Cup Soccer
I caught the soccer fever a few years ago when I started watching the Euro Cup and following Spain and their amazingness… I’m a huge fan of Torres. He’s my favorite. So when the World Cup started 3 weeks ago, you could say I have been glued to the games with anticipation. On Saturday I went to Brit’s Pub in Minneapolis to enjoy the Spain vs. Paraguay game with tons of other Spain fans. It was an incredible experience, I can’t imagine watching a game any other way! Wednesday’s game can not come soon enough, hopefully we can beat Germany AGAIN!
2. Emily Giffin’s books
She’s one of my favorite authors and I’ve read all of her books over the past couple of years. Her most recent book Heart of the Matter came out last month, I think I read it in a few days. I really enjoyed it but then again she could write anything and I’d read it. I’m looking forward to the movie they are filming now based on her first book Something Borrowed. If you haven’t read these, I highly recommend them!
3. The 4th of July
Hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday weekend! It has to be one of my favorite holidays, I loveeee fireworks so an excuse to sit outside with my favorite people and enjoy the day was PERFECT. I spent the first part of the day with one of my best friends at the Twins game and then headed into Excelsior to enjoy the fireworks with a whole lot of people. It’s honestly one of my favorite places to be on the 4th of July! Come visit next year, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

4. Camelbak Water Bottle
I have to give a huge shout out and thank you to Miss Bobbi Sheridan of bobbi+mike for introducing me to this amazing, life changing water bottle. She wrote about it in one of her blog posts and I was like, I need to get that. It has changed the way I drink water, I liked to drink it before but I realized how much more I consume now. It’s always nice and cold and doesn’t spill all over things… absolutely AMAZING!
5. Despicable Me
As if you didn’t know this already but I love cartoon movies, the girls I nanny and I have been obsessing over this movie. Every time the trailer comes out we burst out laughing and quote it ALL the time. It comes out this Friday and I think it’s going to be a huge hit, I know of at least 3 people who will be seeing it!!!
