Favorite Things July Edition

Can you believe it's the last day of July?!? Me neither! I'm not one to wish away summer, but..... I CAN'T WAIT FOR SEPTEMBER. Why can't I wait for September? Because my momma will be here for the WHOLE month! 

Today, I am linking up with the beautiful Ashley from Dancing with Ashley for her monthly favorite things. 

1. Getting to spend time with this girl
If you've been following my blog for awhile, you will know that I absolutely LOVE my sister-in-law! My brother-in-law and sister-in-law came for a visit a couple of weeks ago and we had almost four days full of Bitzer family fun. It was such a great weekend! 

2. Wine nights with the girls
I think we can all agree that ladies nights are the BEST! This girls night was spent eating yummy food, drinking yummy wine and listening to amazing live music. Complete with a toast to Channing Tatum, Melissa asking the bartender who his man crush was, me trying to get the singer to serenade me and me telling the bartender he looked like a woodsman/lumberjack and he needed an axe. 

3. Boy Meets World on MTV2
Who didn't love Boy Meets World? Watching this reminds me of T.G.I.F. on Friday nights when I was in Junior High and High School. Please tell me you remember this. How can you not love Cory and Topanga?

4. Big floppy hats and headwraps

Big floppy hats are perfect for keeping the sun out of your face on a gorgeous sunny day and headwraps are perfect for the days you don't wash your hair (and the days you do wash your hair, they are just perfect). Add a little dry shampoo, put on the headwrap and voila... instant cute hairdo.

6. The Sonoma County Fair
Every summer since I moved here we have gone to the fair. We get there around 11 AM and have our first round of food (turkey kabobs and roasted corn on the cob), then we walk around for awhile seeing all the animals, silly stuff they sell, etc and then we finish with another round of food (corn dogs and a huge brick of curly fries). My stomach hates me the next day, but it is sooooo worth it! 

Head on over and say hi to Ashley and get your link-up on! 


  1. boy meets world ... ahhh. talk about nostalgia. we're having corn on the cob tonight. YES.

  2. Girls nights are the best! I just feel rejuvenated after them! I think i have the exact same floppy hat you do! I got mine at a mall stand and it is "crushable" so you can pack it in a suitcase.

  3. I LOVE Boy Meets World!!! I got really excited the other day because I found it on TV. I also love big, floppy hats because I hate the sun in my face. Sounds like you had a fun month and have a great one coming up soon as well. :)

  4. Boy Meets World and county fairs? Those are two of my favorite things too! Also love the cute floppy hat!
