Under $25 Wish List!

I have a mild obsession with finding a good deal. That’s just me. That’s where Amazon comes into play. There’s so many great things for such a great price. I could honestly spend 12 hours a day looking at things on Amazon; which is why so many items on this list are from Amazon!
With my 25th birthday coming up, I thought why not share some things I’m loving too as a birthday wish list. I remember reading Kathrine’s post last month and falling in love with it. Although I don’t expect gifts from anyone, sometimes I find it fun to create lists like this!
On another completely off topic subject, I have fallen in love with Spensha Baker’s music from The Voice. I have had her cover of My Church on repeat since Saturday.

Old Navy Mini Try On Haul + Wish List

I’ve legitimately had this sitting as a draft for over a week now! Don’t ask me why.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I’m obsessed with Old Navy. The price points are great, the quality is good for price and they have something for everything! Last week, I had to sneak over to my local Old Navy to try on the chambray shorts. I fell in love with the midi dress below, too.

The only thing that I had an issue with was the sizing in the shorts! Holy! I do typically remember their shorts fitting kind of awkward so I grabbed a size bigger than I wear in Pixie pants. They wouldn’t even do up. One day maybe I’ll share the picture of that adventure on the blog but for today, I decided that I would focus on the pluses of Old Navy’s summer line.
Update: I lied. I posted it on my Oliver & Moose Instagram.

Also just for reference – I’m an apple body shape and typically wear an 8-10 in pants and a large in tops! The shorts and top were both size large, as was the dress.

101 of the Best Gluten-Free Summer Recipes

Before I get into this post, I needed to add – I upgraded my phone on Monday morning to an iPhone 8 and I’m obsessed with the quality of the camera on it! I definitely will be starting to post more day-to-day pictures on the blog in the coming days (starting with today, actually).

I think I’ve said this about ten times over the past year on the blog but I love recipe round ups. I haven’t done one since January though!

As the weather gets warmer, I’m starting to appreciate salads more and more. I find with the hot weather that starchy foods just make me feel “blah”. I also wanted to share two recipes that I love for summer!
My new obsession is one of the premade salad bags with iceberg lettuce, either BBQ chicken or ground beef, a bit of cheese and either ranch or thousand island dressing. The ground beef and thousand island mix tastes like a Big Mac! So good!
One of my recent salads!

My second recent summer obsession is roasting a cauliflower on the BBQ! So simple and the most perfect side. I take an entire cauliflower head, rub olive oil and seasonings of choice and put it on the BBQ, head up.

Today I’m sharing 101 gluten free summer recipes. Perfect for low key relaxing evenings or great for BBQs, too.
