  1. Deep fried butter? Seriously? That sounds so good and yet so bad at the same time...
    Your summer looks so awesome, I hope it keeps on getting better and better :)

  2. Laura, Yes really deep fried butter! It was oddly delicious.

  3. deep fried butter? are you kidding me? (granted, i would probably eat it if given the opportunity.) this kind of looks like the best summer ever.

  4. Omg, i've heard about the deep fried butter all day from the radio and gawker. I sorta-kinda wanna try it. I was gonna do a post like this too, but your summer was a lot more eventful than mine, lol =)

  5. Looks like a spectacular summer to me! I'll trade ya. :)

  6. How was the skydiving?

    And the Lake House looks like such a relaxing place to read :)

  7. Ellen, Not kidding you. It's the new thing at State Fair this year. (Last year was chocolate covered bacon.) I'm happy I tried it, but it's not something I would get again. It swam around oddly in my stomach.

    Leica, You should still do your post! I want to see it. Miss you :)

    Andi, Ha thanks! It's been a good one.

    Sam, Skydiving was super fun. It's my 4th time going. I go about once a year. You can't beat it.

  8. That bloody mary looks epic.

    Love these summer pictures. Although I don't know if I could do the deep fried butter. Chocolate covered bacon, maybe

  9. deep fried butter.

    Sounds amazing. Haha.

  10. Looks like a pretty good summer.

  11. What a great idea for a post! You've had such an eclectic summer. I like how the alcohol is surrounding the pic of skydiving. I'd probably need those before I could get the courage to jump even though I really want to go! :) Were you very nervous your first jump?

  12. Brenna- It looks like you've had some fun! We shouldn't worry too much about the whole not blogging as much thing - this is life! Glad to see you're having a good time. :) Reading by the lake... perfect!

  13. I love your summer pics. You went skydiving! Awesome. Plus breweries, fireworks and reading at a lake house, just about perfect.

  14. Nothing new to add, just joining the general awe: deep fried butter?! I though the Scottish deep fried Mars bar was the limit...

  15. Deep fried butter looks delicious. Looks like you're having an awesome summer. :)

  17. Okay, I'm with everyone else: deep fried butter? Why have I not experienced this phenomenon? I'm currently trying to wedge myself into a bridesmaid dress but after that? I'm all over this. Tried my first fried Oreo at a festival last year and it was love at first nibble.
