Welcome to the weekend, my friends! We’ve been enjoying the last few weeks of summer and making the most of the coolest weather I’ve ever enjoyed in August. (Remind me in February just how much I love this Ohio weather, okay?) Because right now? Every day feels here feels like heaven.

ON THE BLOG this week: Beer and Garlic Chicken Marinade is a grilling season favorite. Have you tried beer and garlic in a marinade? I highly recommend it. I don’t like beer at all, but in a marinade? It is fantastic!

Did you catch all of my tips for Perfect Every Time Homemade Waffles this week? I shared our family recipe along with a whole lot of awesome variations for sweet and savory waffles that we love.

What I’m CRAVING: I know, I know, it’s so early for pumpkin, but these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins by The Food Charlatan look INCREDIBLE. I have the recipe on my must make list for fall and I can hardly wait to make them!

My FAVORITE THINGS this week are my Gorilla Grip bathroom rugs (link HERE) Feel free to hold your laughter, but yes I’m excited about bath mats. These rugs are amazing. I’ve been using them for 5 months now and I just ordered more for the master bathroom. They wash beautifully and they’re fluffy and super soft. And best of all? They’re a great price, especially for the quality you’re getting.

What I’m READING: The 18th Abduction by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro (link HERE) The Women’s Murder Club hasn’t disappointed me yet. I’ve been reading this series for years and I don’t know how, but it’s still every bit as great now as it was in the beginning. There aren’t many series that manage to pull that off. This is one of them.

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
