Is it just me, or is there a white sand beach with crystal clear waves calling out because it seriously needs a beach chair and a mai tai in it these days? I think it has a lot to do with the end of school and summer vacation season kicking off… you know, even though I don’t have kids.

Speaking of not having kids…. the puppy has been hilarious lately. We were giddy with how docile and mellow he was. Haha! Tricked us. His newest phase is eating frogs… It’s gross. It doesn’t end well (for the dog or the frog) and we feel horrible about it. This week, our puppy is in the lead for worst pup. Time for everyone else to step up the game.

We’ve recently discovered that the better you get at mountain biking the longer your rides become. The longer they become, the more you are running around later in the day smelling of all things gross from the woods trying to shove sweet potatoes in the cart and get through the Sunday afternoon market madhouse to get back to previously mentioned pup to see what else he decided to nibble on. Yep, the moment you know you are into it. Walking around the market in mud covered spanx smelling like horse poo not giving a hoot because well, what you just did was pretty rockin.

Mainly because you really want to get home to edit the adorable photos you snapped Friday night! Because you know I have gone full on legit with this whole picture taking thing? Oh, no.. I guess I should post about that. (don’t worry, I am toootally going to be posting about that).

In the mean time, check out these amazing chocolate pretzel granola bars. I can’t have them right now because of the uber diet Handsome and I are on… We will talk about that later. But I think you should make them anyway. Devour them. Then make another batch and devour them for me.

    You’re evil to yourself for making something like this while on that diet (assuming it’s the one Steph did and the cleanse that I did). I don’t think I could handle doing the entire thing while blogging. It’d kill me to not eat all that stuff.

    I love granola bars, especially when they have some good stuff but a few naughty things too! Totally a fun treat.

    Your puppy stories crack me up. At least the cake eating phase is over, right??
