Get your butt in gear and go print out our Oscar Ballots for a fun game to play whilst you have to sit through all those commercials. Because let’s face it, there are a lot of commercials to get through and there are only so many times you can stand up to refill your popcorn bowl before you finish the whole bag..2016 Oscar Ballot | Popcorn & ChocolateI think my favorite part about watching the Oscars, aside from the fashion, is the huge list added to my list of movies I need to watch in the near future (or when they are available on Netflix). Usually I go into the Oscars having only seen one or two of the movies, which I then proceed to vote for for everything. You see I’m not a huge fan of going to the actual movies, so I miss out on a lot of the movies that are nominated until after the fact. Doesn’t bother me though – I still enjoy watching the Oscars and voting nonetheless! Plus, as I already said, I get a big list of movie possibilities come next Friday night.2016 Oscars | Popcorn & ChocolateI realize most of you actually do like to go to the movies and have seen most of the nominations before the Oscars.

I mean an Oscar ballet would be pretty cool too but I don’t think we can send you a free printable of that.

August Favorites

Oh, okay, Summer I see what you have done there. You have done and gone straight to Fall. I guess I can be okay with this. I GUESS. So long as you promise to explode with pumpkin flavored everything (candles I’m eyeing you) and plaid styled clothing and lets not forget Halloween decorations galore. Can y’all believe August is over?? This summer flew by. I mean FLEW. Holy cow where does time go? Okay grandma stop ranting and get along with the post… If you couldn’t tell from the title we are here to talk about our goodbye to summer forever August favorites.

Princess taking over my parents bed... as per usual

Princess taking over my parents bed… as per usual

Home: Little miss Olive. We went home to NH in August and I got to see my giant horse of a dog. She hasn’t changed much.. still deathly afraid of the vacuum cleaner, still jumps (jump is a bit of a stretch..) onto your bed and takes up the whole thing if you leave your door open for one second, still begs for food by resting her head on our kitchen table (yes she is tall enough to do this. Oh how I’ve missed all her silly dogerisms.


Some of our new succulents and some of our old ones that were taking over… pinky I’m talking about you

Also in home – new succulents! We bought some new succulents to add to our home when we were at Ikea (they have some awesome succulents) and also took the opportunity to re-pot some of our old ones that were taking over. Rose likes to propagate succulents by taking a leaf that has fallen off or plucking one off as long as it has visible roots and planting it in a new pot. She’s been doing it to all of our succulents so we shall see what grows.

Fitness Blender home pageWorkouts: Okay this might be an odd one but Rose and I both love (well as much as you can love a workout) using Fitness Blender for our daily workouts. They have easy to hard to my legs are going to fall off if I have to do another jump squat hard workouts that you can choose from. You can also choose how long you want your workout to be, which is great for me when I try and wake up early and workout. If you haven’t checked them out you should!

Me before you book coverBooks: As Rose mentioned in our June favorites, she read and loved Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Welp, you guessed it, I finally read it and lovedddd it too. From the description of the book I was kinda like ehh but once I read the first few pages I was hooked and whizzed through the whole thing.

The Nightingale book coverAnd while I was reading Rose’s recommendation she finally read mine and loveddd The Nightingale. Since we haven’t quite figured out how to share Kindle books we just literally swapped Kindles for the month.

Boyhood movie coverMovies: Boyhood. I know this movie has been out for a while but we finally got around to watching it and both loved it. The boy in it legit has the same voice/mannerisms/thoughts as my brother so it was amusing to watch for me and only slightly creepy. Regardless, go watch this and not be creeped out because you don’t know who my brother is.

Unreal_CandyCoatedMCFood: Unreal chocolate coated candy. Umm because it is too easy and I have to… these chocolates are UNREAL. But seriously these chocolates are sosoosoo good. Plus they are made with 100% real ingredients so you don’t feel bad when you go and accidently eat the whole bag in one sitting. Check them out – they make all sorts of different flavors and candies. We bought ours at Whole Foods.
