Desktop for August

I love this quote and it reminds me so much of Jenny. This is the desktop for August, er mid-August, make that late August rather. You can grab this for your desktop background along with a 5x7" print and bookmark printable on the PRETTYblog.

The Big Wonderful

Today we took the boys to The Big Wonderful in RiNo. RiNo is an industrial neighborhood slash arts district just north and east of downtown Denver. It is a unique mix of industrial relics, art studios, breweries, coffee shops, and hip restaurants.  The Big Wonderful, held in a mulched open space, is a marketplace with everything from local artists, food trucks, produce vendors, and live music.

We had been wanting to check it out for a while, and finally made it down there today (perhaps on the hottest day ever!). Turns out The Big Wonderful felt a little more booze-focused (a place for people to go hang out and drink) versus the farmers market I was envisioning. But, the boys had a blast eating a Hawaiian-style snow cone (ice cream on the bottom, marshmellow topping drizzled on top) and dancing/jumping to the live music.

book club // The Hypnotist's Love Story

Next book club pick coming at you! We enjoyed The Husband's Secret so much that we decided to go with another one of Liane Moriarty's books - The Hypnotist's Love Story.

According to, it is about:
Ellen O’Farrell is a professional hypnotherapist who works out of the eccentric beachfront home she inherited from her grandparents. It’s a nice life, except for her tumultuous relationship history. She’s stoic about it, but at this point, Ellen wouldn’t mind a lasting one. When she meets Patrick, she’s optimistic. He’s attractive, single, employed, and best of all, he seems to like her back. Then comes that dreaded moment: He thinks they should have a talk.

Braced for the worst, Ellen is pleasantly surprised. It turns out that Patrick’s ex-girlfriend is stalking him. Ellen thinks, Actually, that’s kind of interesting. She’s dating someone worth stalking. She’s intrigued by the woman’s motives. In fact, she’d even love to meet her. 
Ellen doesn’t know it, but she already has.
Will you read it with us? Catch up on the previous book club posts here.

Just another donut monday

 Another Monday is another Donut Monday at one of our favorite hangouts. The boys love them donuts, but who are we kidding, we all love them donuts. The boys stay busy playing cars, but today also involved standing on seats and a little brotherly game of "don't" where they just say "don't" back and forth to each other is a mildly annoyed tone while doing things to mildly bother one another (point, put a hand in the face, touch, etc.).
