tid + bits of life ❤️ AND an easy $140 Giveaway!


Like a crazy woman I decided to bake up a huge batch of mini donuts in my kitchen when our AC was broken and Utah hit 100 degree temperatures. Oh yeah and did I add I am pregnant? I was one hot mess but the donuts turned out adorable, no? I made these as "Thank Yous" for all the people who have been so generous lately! For neighbors who welcomed us to the neighborhood with multiple cookies, and amazing girlfriends who helped throw me such a fun baby shower. People are good, and let's face it, donuts are the best!


My friend Jalynn has been the perfect date to the last few blogging events I have been able to attend.
A few weeks ago we hit up a fashion infused tea party hosted by the talented owner and designer of Kingdom and State and the brilliant shoe company Yosisamra. It was a fun night!

We also got to go try out the new menu and The Roll Up Café in Orem! Everything was amazing but my favorite by far was the dessert I got. This would be a Cinnamon Roll Crepe! Think a Cinnabon that's less bready and more amazing. There was even ice cream in it! You guys seriously need to check out the revamped menu. So much goodness from savory to sweet. The location has new ownership and the chef has created magic with her new dishes! Oh yeah, and make sure you try the Nutella shake!


And while we are talking about scrumptious food down in Provo, anytime I am there I HAVE to get some 180 Tacos, Chicken Buffalo to be exact. Do yourself a favor and get some if you are ever in Provo. It's a good thing I don't live there anymore I would be stopping here on the daily! haha

 
I don't know which is worse, the fact that Kraft macaroni and cheese is still one of my favorite things to eat, or that I was super giddy about these Star Wars shapes?!!
And a random addition to this post, because these dump updates are always random, here is a video of my beautiful hometown - San Diego! This video is so cool and captures the beauty of San Diego so perfectly. They hit some of my all time favorite spots and it made my heart flutter a bit. While I have grown to love Utah, San Diego will always have a big piece of my heart. I wouldn't say I think about "home" daily, but probably weekly! haha I love my hometown!

  10. Umm you seriously MADE those donuts?! How in the world?! They're literally perfect. This is my first time reading (found you from the giveaway) so maybe you're a world class baker and I don't know?! Also that cinnamon roll crepe looks delicious. I went to Provo for a week last year for a work training thing and I wish I had known about your blog sooner...maybe I could've gotten suggestions!
