1. Lemon tiramisu cake?! I’m so into this.
2. I’ve maybe talked about this before in the last decade, but do you like (the bottom of) your bedsheets tucked into the bed? Or not tucked in? I know it’s a very controversial subject. Eddie HATES them tucked in and I *need* them tucked in. The problem is he flails and rolls around so much in bed that if they aren’t tucked in, all of the sheets and everything are off the bed by morning! Halp me.
3. Absolutely love this on emotional intelligence – and what we weren’t taught in school.
4. TV things! Okay so I LOVED this week’s episode of Euphoria. I adore Jules and Zendaya as Rue is incredible. I can’t get a read on Nate (other than that he is a horrible human), but there’s obvi more to it given his dad. It’s so good! I also am on the fence about Big Little Lies – I’m having such a hard time watching the kids/custody portion. And I feel like they’ve made the characters so much more awful than the first book. We also are SO loving Yellowstone right now.
5. Travel help! Tell me everything you know and love about 30A and also… do you know or are you a personal chef in 30A?
6. Max is so obsessed with sunsets right now, but more importantly, taking pictures of said sunset. When he sees the sunset, he runs and screams that he “needs a camera to take a picture!” My phone currently houses 50+ terrible quality “sunset photos” (read, like half a wall near a window) but he loves to look at the pictures he takes, so I can’t bear to delete.
7. If you’re an Elin Hilderbrand fan, then you have to read how she became the queen of the beach read.
8. Did you score any deals on prime day? The only thing I sort of wanted is a robot vacuum… but I didn’t bite the bullet. I still want one though!

Tucked! 100% I CAN”T^ sleep if they are untucked. I used to wake up my mom if they become untucked during the night and have her tuck them back in . Yes i was a joy!
We totally just bought a Roomba and I love it! I really didn’t think that I would because I can vacuum myself. But we have 2 dogs and the hair on the hardwood is everywhere all of the time. The roomba is amazing! I set it to run every day right before I get home from work so when I get there the floors are clean. It saves so much time! I was also surprised at how much it actually picks up. Totally worth the money to me! Also- lemon tiramisu? Sounds like perfection.
I’ve never read Elin Hilderbrand but was fascinated by that profile; glad you also enjoyed! Do you have a favorite of hers? And as always I love Tuesday Things. :) It’s one of the highlights of my internet week!
I was wondering though when/if you are going to post another in your series on blogging? I know you’re so busy now with the blog, cookbook and kids but I have been enjoying that series (and your past posts in Real Life Wednesday, for example) and was wondering about the next one. Hope you have a nice rest of your Tuesday!
I am having anxiety just thinking about sleeping without the bottom of the sheet tucked in!
I’ve been buying a ton of children’s books that are on sale. Also, Target has a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” offer on books right now. Love it.
30A like the road? I grew up and lived here all my life but I’ve never heard it talked about as being ‘in’ 30A! Literally, it’s a little road that goes through several Florida gulf towns. And is horribly crowded during certain times of the year and the locals hate it ;-D
Can you put 2 twin top sheets on your bed, rather than 1 king, so you can keep yours tucked in? (I’m with you, by the way – I need mine tucked in!)
OMG THE BED SHEET THING. My husband HATES them tucked in and I NEED them tucked in, too. I usually tuck them in when I make the bed then he will untuck them with his feet by morning *insert eyeroll.* AND YOU NEED a robot vacuum, maybe even two haha! We have a ranch style home, two black labs and run it almost every day, sometimes twice a day if I’m home all day. 200% one of the best things I’ve ever purchased! XO
Team sheets tucked in! My husband is a big guy 6/5 and hangs off our bed but he’s easily able to kick them out so he can move around. (Then I make the bed in the morning retucking.). ((As I write this, I realize he’s probably wondering why I always tuck it in hahaha)
I’m not such a fan of BLL, which is sad because I was so excited for it to come back and it’s just disappointing! We just started Euphoria and while it’s deep and dark, I like it!
The only Prime deal I got was a City if Girls, hardcover, for a book. I used the $5 coupon and $10 Whole Foods credit meaning I paid $1 for the book and I’m stoked
Tucked, most of the time. The two times I like it untucked: (1) when it’s really hot, or (2) when my knee is sore from running. If my knee is sore, an untucked sheet makes it easier to roll over or move around in bed. #crazybuttrue
Our sheets were always falling off our bed and I hate them tucked in and my husband *needs* them tucked in. We bought and upholstered bed with a footboard! It’s easy to tuck on side in and leave one side untucked. Plus even when neither side is tucked in bedding never falls off even with my husband thrashing around all night. It’s been the perfect solution and a girlfriend of mine dors the same thing!
Try Beddybeds if you want tucked/untucked freedom!
Or do what me and my husband do and get separate blankets! I sleep hot and he sleeps cold so we need different blankets to maintain our sleeping habits. Seemed weird at first, but now we love it and couldn’t imagine it any other way!
We do this too and it has been the best thing for getting good sleep
George’s Cafe on 30a in Alyce Beach is a MUST. Great Southern Cafe happy hour in Seaside has $1 oysters. We make a point to visit both places every time we go! Also the little town center at Rosemary Beach is adorable.
We love 30A – specifically Rosemary Beach! My husband and I just did a baby moon there and we only used our car one time to drive to another town on 30A (Seaside) for dinner.
My husband and I are also a tucked/untucked couple. I tuck in my half of the bed, and leave his half untucked. The coverlet on top of everything covers a lot. His side does face a wall and is not in view of the doorway, so that helps.
Absolutely with you on the tucked in sheets AND the characters being so much more unlikeable in BLL season 2! (But I’m only 1 episode in!) I love your Crumbs section – always so much fun to read :) Thank you!
#5…YESSS to 30A (Seaside, Watercolor, FL)!! It’s amazing there! My BFF bought a house there two years ago and I’ve been twice in January with girlfriends. I wrote about where we stayed (it is for rent), the private chef (highly recommend) we hired and what we did here – https://champagneonplanes.com/usa/florida-seaside/
Forgo the top sheet altogether! Ours stayed tucked in at the bottom but kicked off everywhere else and drove me crazy. We’ve gone the Nordic way with no top sheet and separate comforters and I don’t ever want to go back. I can sleep with my weighted, cool blanket and he can wrap himself up like the Michelin man.
30A is great. The central area in Seaside has several cute air stream vendors. The Frose and Five Daughter’s donuts are great. The Seaside shop is a must, because if you don’t have a Seaside sweatshirt are wear it with Birkenstocks, did it even happen?!
George’s at Alys Beach is very good. amici 30A has DELICIOUS homemade pasta. The Hub in Watersound is a fun place to hang out. The food is okay, but the open space and drinks make it a fun place for the kids to run around.
You totally need a robot vacuum! We have a golden, a boxer/lab and a cat and between the 3 hairs we were inundated! I set it a 11am each day and no more tumbleweed!
Totally need the sheets tucked in and thankfully so does the hubby. Can you just tuck in your side of the top sheet?
If you have an old cell phone give that to Max for his sunset pics….you don’t need connectivity and he’ll have his very own camera!
30A. The beaches are beautiful; fun and cute beach towns, some more populated than others; great restaurants. The bad news is it is unbelievably crowded at times. It was kind of hidden gem for a while, but everyone caught on pretty quickly. I’m sure it’ s better if you go once school starts for most places down South. September or October would both probably be good months to go because it would be less crowded and the weather will still be nice. Just have to watch out for hurricanes!
The best crab cakes I have ever had! It burned down this last year, but they are going to rebuild!
30A!! I actually live here full time, if you need any recommendations or have questions. Feel free to reach out
I was lucky enough to meet Elin a couple of summers ago outside Mitchell’s bookstore in Nantucket and have her sign my book. She was as delightful as you’d imagine! And the Elin Hildebrand Nantucket weekend??!! OMG – sign me up!
Waiting on Martha site has a great 30A guide!
Totally tram tucked. My husband is a messy sleeper and he always untucks, ugh! I’ve watched two episodes of Euphoria. I’m conflicted about liking it and finding it super disturbing.
untucked always. i feel severe like claustrophobia if they are tucked.
#8 I literally read reviews on amazon regarding the roomba undecided about it, up until an hour before the deals expired. I ended up getting it and figure I can always return it, if we don’t like it or we don’t think is worth it the first week.
OMG same! I want every side tucked in so I’m secure a snug little burrito! And my husband wants it all untucked and off kilter. Kills me.
OK I’m totally in the minority and might get some hate but – I did not care for 30A at all. It was crowded, overpriced, and extremely white-washed/ Stepford-y/ Truman Show-y. That being said, it is beautiful, and TONS of people love it so I am obviously a cranky old lady about it all. :)
I bought a Eufy versus the Roomba based on a lot of recommendations. It was much cheaper too! I love him! Yes HIM!. I named him Hobson after the movie Arthur. I make him work every day!
We have bed sheet issues too… we have tucked/untucked issues, but more than that, I have a thing where my sheet must EXACTLY meet the top edge of the comforter, or it keeps me up at night. And they both must hit me right where I want them to. It’s kinda hard to explain, but this becomes a problem for us with our height difference. Lol.
Okay. Sheet is untucked BUT I turn it the wrong way. Sideways onto the bed. Then my husband, who tends to cocoon himself with the sheet and blankets, can still do this and I’ll still have a cover on myself. I do the same with our blanket. In the winter we each get our own blanket because brrr.
Get the vacuum! So worth it!! And tucked in please!
Untucked, both my husband and I. I also sleep with a blanket because I get cold and he gets the sheet. I say get a robot vacuum, I have the Eufy 11s or 11c (whichever is the Pet Edition) because the pets shed all the time.
