📓Lil Treasures #133: Bottle Flips and Emotional Support Notebooks
Plus magical sunscreen and pandemi snacking.
Hello friends. The internet has been extra dark this week, and that mixed with dealing with *gestures wildly* alllllll the annoyances and insurmountable costs that come with being a homeowner, I am spent. It is officially July and it’s hot everywhere and I am finding solace in videos like of this cutie bear below. If I’m going to live in a place that experiences 80% humidity on a regular basis, this is how I want to spend my days 🐻
I also came across this tweet the other day and I relate to this perfectly:
I ate a lot of snacks (cheese) during the pandemic. I mean I still am, to be fair. Do I have issues digesting dairy from time to time? Yes. But is eating the cheese worth the troubles? Also yes.
I’m driving my kids 10+ hours to Texas camp today, so y’all say a prayer for me. We’re going to spend this 4th of July weekend the proper way, riding in a small West Texas Independence Day parade and stuffing ourselves full of funnel cakes. I hope your holiday weekend is equally as special!
Shall we do some treasures?
👩💻One of my favorites Kristin Du Mez wrote this fantastic piece in her newsletter this week. Well-worth the read!
🙌 I desperately want a hype squad like this bottle flip champion.
❗The internet has been on fire the last couple of weeks, mostly in the worst ways. A lot of times the good stuff gets lost in all of the trash chaos, but thankfully I didn’t miss this very important thread by Christina Edmondson.
🥪 May I present yet another culinary winner from Half Baked Harvest in the form of these Italian pub sliders.
🧴One of the MVPs of my summer skincare has been this SuperGoop "unseen sunscreen". It’s so light and non-streaky and I love it.
🍸 My friend Bri McKoy is a kitchen genius and posts some really great food+drink content, but don’t miss her post from earlier this week about nuance. So freaking good.
Best of Twitter this week:
J.P. McDade @jp_mcdade“Hey is it cool if I bring a random extra guy to lunch who will absolutely obliterate the vibe?”
this wholesome story:
Okay guys, I’m off to drive across a whole lot of nothing on I-20!
I’m going to need your delightful treasures when I get back, so please don’t forget to leave them in the comments. Enjoy your holiday weekend! 💙
