Dairy Free 4th of July Treats

Happy (almost) 4th of July weekend friends! Growing up the 4th of July was my favorite holiday. Can you imagine hearing a 10 year old say that Christmas is their second favorite holiday because the 4th of July was holding the top spot. But when your small and sleepy town wakes up in a big […]

Stepping into Summer Link-Up

Happy Tuesday everyone!  My week is jam packed (what else is new?) so a traditional blog post wasn’t in the cards for today. I’m working really hard at recognizing when I just don’t have the time instead of saying yes to everything. It’s hard. Really hard.   But I wanted to stop by today for the […]

SOTD Eats: Blue Pit BBQ

Have you ever met someone so passionate about what they do that it’s infectious?  Someone who lights up when they talk about their business and makes you want to sit and hear every behind the scenes story they’re willing to share? Chris and I definitely did when we met Cara, owner of Blue Pit BBQ […]

Loving Lately: Work Bag Edition

So I’m on the search for a new work bag. I really love black structured bags… so it’s a little awkward that I’m carrying a crappy work bag and have been since I started working at WPB last July. It’s high time for an upgrade. I carry a bag with me everywhere throughout our district […]


My happy place is the beach and always has been. There is something about the feeling of sand beneath my feet, the salty cool breeze that comes off of the ocean, the slow and easygoing way of life, and the sunshine. I can’t get enough of it.   This past weekend I was invited to go […]

Rocksbox: Kendra Scott Tassel Necklace

  Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace in Amazonite When I opened the box and saw the GORGEOUS Kendra Scott necklace waiting for me I was so excited but also a little apprehensive. I love most of Kendra’s necklaces especially THIS one, and I’ve seen her long gem necklaces on almost every blogger I follow but tassels? […]

Ellie Goulding Repeat

Last Tuesday my friend Katie and I went to see Ellie Goulding at a local music venue. If you are a new follower of Soup of the Day you have no idea, but I’m a HUGE Ellie Goulding fan. I saw her for the first time 2 years ago at the 9:30 club and it […]

Papa Soup’s Life Lessons

In honor of Fathers Day and my Dad’s birthday at the end of the month I thought it was about time to give him a major shoutout on Soup of the Day.  That man doesn’t get nearly as much credit as he deserves. He has been my teacher, nurse, adventure buddy, personal encyclopedia and number […]
