catching up

I haven't blogged in two months, and it seriously feels like it was just yesterday.
Is it just me, or is summer flying by?

What have you been up to?
Are you having a fun summer?
I figured I'd catch you up on what I've been doing these past two months since I took an unplanned hiatus so suddenly.

Needless to say, I've been busy.
All over the place.
I don't really feel like I've had any time to breathe, honestly!
But with that said, I will say that most of it has been awesome.

Joe sent me "happy 6 months 'til our wedding" flowers, and my heart melted, appropriately...

...I hosted a girls' night at my apartment, complete with six hours at the pool, cocktails, dinner, and a face mask bar {thanks to Kayla's crafty skills!}...

...I brunched...a lot...

...Joe and I spent the 4th of July in Mexico on a family vacation {I miss you Isla Mujeres}...

...I went to more girls' nights...

...I helped host a nautical-themed baby shower {using this chicken salad for these little crabs!}...

...and finally, I helped host a surprise hashtag-themed bridal shower for a bride friend/fellow hashtag-lover of mine at work {don't get excited, the mimosas were made with sparkling grape juice}.

On top of all of that, there's been parties, dinners, brunches, Orange is the New Black marathons, wedding planning, and a promotion at work!

There's also been a lot of recipe fails.
One day I'll have a cauliflower mash to share with you, but that day is sadly not today.

Question: Have you ever tried to eat paleo before?
Joe is interested in doing it {and when I say that, I mean he's interested in us doing it because I'm the one who makes our meals}, but I don't know too much about it.
Really just touching the tip of the iceberg at the moment.
Any/all suggestions would be great on places to start.

Oh yeah, also, are you watching The Bachelorette?!
