The Dirt – July 31,2016


  1. The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown With the Olympics just around the corner I am excited to finish this page turner about the 1936 Olympic Rowing team.
  2. Bourbon and Bowties Bracelets: Love these!! I am stocking up for all my September Birthday Girls!
  3. Humble and Kind by Tim McGraw: Noah’s soccer season ended this week and I keep recalling his coaches quote: “Remember that there is almost 0% chance that any of these boys will play professionally, but 100% chance that they will all be human beings with strengths, weaknesses, and relationships.” Sometimes we can just push our kids to be the best and forget that it is their character that is most important.
  4. La Croix Mure Pepino This Midwest girl loves her La Croix. The new Mure Pepino is a mix of Blackberry and Cucumber. Yum!
  5. Rosemary Lemon Roasted Chicken by @mckeniefussell A light summer meal.
