1. For the first time since getting an iPhone all those years ago, I cracked my screen. This is the first phone mishap I’ve ever had and of course, since I felt so invincible, I didn’t have any insurance on it. Whomp whomp.
2. Cinnamon crumb BREAFAST BREAD? Um hello. Let’s make this a forever thing.
3. Had definite FOMO not watching Game of Thrones. I mean, like, never watching it. It just wasn’t ever my cup of tea but I sure did feel left out on Sunday night.
4. I did, however, watch and looooove Billions (p.s. anyone else can’t wait for Wendy and Taylor?!). Need to start something binge-able since summer spring/summer TV is the worst.
5. Yesterday I realized that I will probably hit my 50th Peloton ride next week… and now I’m wondering if I can hit 100 by June. If I pick a live ride for my 50th, who wants to ride with me!
6. The best: how I learned to stop being jealous and get on with my life.
7. What kind of summer entertaining recipes and tips are you looking for? I have so many fun things up my sleeve right now and want to hear what you’re thinking!
8. Decided over the weekend that it’s officially rosé season. I mean, it snowed today, but whatever.

Thanks for sharing that article! definitely ran true to some of my feelings these last couple of years…
also i’ve never watched game of thrones, i’m pretty sure neither of us has missed out! if you haven’t watched it, pretty little liars is well worth a binge though!
oooh i love PLL but haven’t watched it in awhile!
For spring/summer, I’d love to see a meal prep series for busy/fun summer weeks – maybe something to eat at home, something to eat with friends, and something to take to go that could all be prepped on the weekend?
I also love simple entertaining ideas – we challenged ourselves to get together with all the families from our daughter’s class at least once this summer so quick, fun meals that adults and kids could enjoy would be awesome. Bonus if they can be prepped at home and enjoyed at our town beach!
I feel you on GoT – even all this hullaballoo isn’t enough to make me want to watch. It’s spring – anything that promises winter is coming can shove it. LOL
fantastic ideas!!! thanks so much katelyn!
I’d ride with you if it’s on a weekend! I did my 50th live and there was no shoutout :(. I’m #skyfullofstars. Peloton is making me super behind on TV because workout time used to be when I caught up on shows. Love it though!!
I’d like some ideas on quickly putting together a bunch of snacks for play groups or last minute trips to the park with neighbors/kids!
kelly – i know!! i used to watch videos or shows on our elliptical and now with the peloton i can’t do that! hah!
I would be interested in seeing a summer entertaining menu that breaks down what is worth making the day before and what should definitely be made day of. Like, guacamole is a day of thing but prepping and marinating chicken is a day before thing. Those are super basic examples and about the extent of my fore thought when it comes that that kind of entertaining. A menu that is a good mix of both would be great. I find I make a menu based on what sounds good but waste a ton of time cooking/prepping all morning. Making things ahead is fine but some things get that refrigerator taste or you just know it would have tasted better fresh.
excellent ideas! thank you!
you can order a repair kit on amazon and fix it yourself! the same thing happened to me and only cost us $20 for the kit – and it’s 100% good to go! (takes about 2 hrs to do yourself, though)
oh my gosh – this is great to know!
Never seen Game of Thrones so I feel ya. It looked so dirty and yucky. Like I want to give them a all a bath and some deodorant. Sheesh – get out of the filth people. Not for me.
I’d love to see full menus/themes/prep timelines for summer entertaining, similar to what you compiled in The Pretty Dish.
great idea! thanks emily!
It is superhuman that this is the first time you have broken your iPhone screen! Do you keep it encased in titanium? Have you had witches put protective spells on them? What is the secret?! Two summers ago, I broke my screen (fell off the place on my stroller I precariously placed it because I was too *frugal* to buy a cup holder thing), got it fixed, THEN CRACKED THE NEW SCREEN THE NEXT DAY WHEN IT FEEL OFF MY STROLLER AGAIN!
bahahaha oh my god this had me laughing out loud!
Did you buy a cup holder now?! :)
I loved your Friday posts from last summer! I’d also love some awesome recipes to make for a big group on a family vacation! We all take turns cooking on our Outer Banks family vacation, and I usually make a shrimp boil but I would love some other delicious and impressive ideas! But not too hard so I can spend all day on the beach 😊
ditto what Sara said!!!!!
Big group recipes. Yes, please! We’re a family of 7 at dinner, so having anyone over automatically makes us a “big group” ;)
thanks guys!! i am def bringing summer fridays back :)
Can’t wait for your 2019 rosé recommendations!!
yay they are coming!!
When you start doing your 2019 rose’ recommendations you must try JNSQ . I tried it over the weekend and it was amazing(also the bottle is GORGEOUS)
awesome! thank you, added it to the list!
Never watched Game of Thrones. Don’t care about it or the fanfare around it. Every one in awhile I indulge in some old westerns (movies and TV shows).
Phone mishaps are something I have become somewhat of an expert at. I always have insurance and the app that helps me locate it when it is separated from me.
I like using fresh fruits in recipes. Our area is overflowing with strawberries grown locally and soon peaches and plums.
My Peloton arrives next Thursday and I could not be more excited! Would love to ride with you…what’s your name? Mine is #Kohler2009
OMG!!! so exciting!! you will love it. i ride under howsweeteats!
Hello Jessica, regarding #4 on watching series, are you into GOOD GIRLS? OMG! So good. And this Manny Montana… how can one resist the bad girl pulsions that lies inside us good girls? Hahaha.
i didn’t realize good girls had come back on until my friend told me this week!! i loved the last season. definitely going to start watching this season!
Summer entertaining any and all prep ahead salad or apps ideas would be wonderful. Always looking for new ideas and as my family now has 3 vegans anything that we all could eat would be great!
thanks!! excellent ideas!
How do you find the time to watch so much TV?
i only watch TV one or two nights a week. i batch all of my work (have for 8 years now) and that time is for tasks that do not require much brain power. i work from 8pm-12 or 1am once or twice a week once the kids are in bed. usually this includes editing about 1500 photos and similar business tasks that do not include writing or reading. that is when i catch up on all my shows!
Have you seen Workin’ Moms or the movie Unicorn Store (both on Netflix)? Workin’ Moms is hilarious and Unicorn Store is really unique! I was exhausted when I started watching it and didn’t even fall asleep while it was on ;)
You need Schitt’s Creek in your life but just don’t know it yet. Comedy/sitcom on Netflix (made by Pop TV in Canada). Current 5th season is available on demand with Xfinity or FIOS. Half hour (20 ish minutes) episodes, 12ish per season. Totally easy and binge-worthy. It is my new favorite show. And I think you will love David and Alexis :)
I second Schitt’s Creek!
Ooh congrats on your 50th ride! I’ll ride with you! I’m doing my 100th tomorrow 16 weeks pregnant :) #SpinEmmaSpin
Do you have a recipe for that pizza? It looks amazing!
Any chance you would be willing to make some “anti inflammatory” recipes (no gluten, dairy, eggs, sugar)? It is excruciating to no longer be able to eat most of what you create when I am used to making every one of your recipes the second you post it!
i second this….after finding out i have celiac almost 6 years ago, this site has become a bit of food p*rn for me :) instead i get ideas here, shed a tear or two, then try to find it GF (and often DF) if i can. check out paleorunningmomma for some good paleo recipes (though she does use eggs a lot). after a while ive learned to modify or just get flavor inspo from non GF blogs. i’m also here for the makeup :)~
Thanks for the advice :)
I’d love to ride your 50th with you! I’m close to hitting my 20th so 50 seems so far away haha. #JamieBlair
Hi Jessica, can you tell me what is this delicious looking pizza crust? I really like crust that’s all bubbly like this! Please share. :)
