Tender Burgers and Tough Love


Let me just start with these words from this book.

“If you’re unhappy, that’s on you”

And with those smacking in your face words, Rachel Hollis really takes empathy and self-pity by the proverbial throat and doesn’t let go. I will have a full book review later since I did receive this book for review purposes. However, go buy this book now. Amazon, Walmart, Target, independent stores, library. Get this book. Thank me later.

With summer still trying to boil our bones and no hope for fall weather in sight, we are grilling everything. I wanted burgers. He made them into smaller sliders because that’s just how it worked out. My favorite way to make a burger (no bun. Gluten free buns are just sad) is with cheddar, caramelized onions, bacon, and mushrooms. I got 2 out of 4 with this platter of grilled perfection.

Mugsby is my new favorite mug source. I saw this on some social media site and knew it needed a place on my mug cabinet. This sums up my fall-obsessed little heart.

It’s 987* outside.

I don’t care.

Give me boots and coffee and scarves.  All pumpkin colored or flavored. I have zero shame.

Here is my next one. Just waiting on that direct deposit to hit on Halloween.


It’s been a long week and Friday is calling me for a nap before a football weekend.
