The Kick I’m On

August 15, 2011

I can get a little obsessed with random things and stay on that kick for about two weeks then I’m over it.

I’m not one for trends since they come and go so fast and tend to cost money I don’t have. But when I find things that I really like I always love to share and see if anyone else gets on kicks too.

My current kicks:

Sweet Corn

Theresa gave us some corn from her backyard last week and this week we finished it off. I love corn in the summer and sweet corn is my absolute favorite!

Lovin' Sweet Corn

It’s perfect alone, but being the Southern girl I am, I have to add a little butter to put it over the top!

Butter is Better

Cottage Cheese and Granola for Breakfast

I got on this kick earlier in the summer and find myself going back to it on mornings when I’m not feeling a smoothie. I’m one of the few people that love cottage cheese over greek yogurt and when mixed with granola and sometimes fruit, YUM!

My current favorite granola is a local brand that you must have shipped to you if you can’t find it. All their flavors are good!

Cottage Cheese and Granola with Blueberries

Blue Toes

I usually go with a safe toe nail color from the pink or purple family, but recently I decided to go wild and get blue.

New Favorite Nail Color

This is no ordinary blue either, “Ogre the Top”. It’s one of the colors from the last Shrek movie and I was SOOO excited when I saw it as one of the salons choices.

The color goes perfect with my yellow TOMS wedges that I wore for our wedding. It’s the perfect late summer combo!

Now I can eat my bowl of cottage cheese and granola with a side of sweet corn all while sporting my cute toe colors!

What is a kick you get on?

Super fun toenail color! I’ve never done granola on cottage cheese – usually just fruit. My newest kick is the raw cookie dough bites that everyone seems to be making with nuts and dates. Mmmm.

Oooh, you have the Toms wedges I’ve been lusting over all summer. They are so cute! I’m kicking myself for not buying them earlier in the season. I’ve been eating (and loving) muesli lately. Nice change up from oatmeal.

The blue nail polish is really cute! I just painted my toe nails a really dark purple color this past weekend. A kick I’m on is eating SunButter. It’s so addictive. I can’t stop thinking about it :P
