~Good morning! It’s our last week of summer break here ;(! We’ve got Meet the Teachers this week plus an assortment of other stuff to check off our Back 2 School list (like getting new shoes which I totally forgot about). Maybe we’ll sneak in one last Chuck E Cheese trip too. Oh and WB is also hoping the ice-cream man comes by. Like really hoping ;).

~The VMA’s. Where to even begin. Was that fight between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj for real? It was pretty awkward that’s for sure. Kanye was Kanye and declared he’s going to run for President in 2020. That should be entertaining. Justin Bieber cried. And Britney looked hot. Oh, and when was the last time MTV played a Music Video? I haven’t seen one on there in ages. They should just call them the “MA’s”!


~It’s the first week of the month, so I should be getting a mixture of August boxes that are still tricking in and some September ones!  I am expecting: Linen Crate, Julep, Hammock Pack, Bijoux Box, Mommy Mailbox and the POPSUGAR Fall Special Edition Box.  I am really hoping we get spoilers on that one today or tomorrow!

~We decided yesterday afternoon to go and check out a local (sort of) ice-cream place called Nice Modern Creamery. They make your ice-cream to order (like you can see them mixing the cream and stuff) using liquid nitrogen.  It’s super cool to watch and the ice-cream was AMAZING.  The ice-cream turns out like soft-serve consistency, but it’s not soft serve.  We’ll for sure go back.

So neat!
So neat!

That’s all from here!  What do you have going on this week?  What subscription boxes are you expecting?

    The fight between Miley and Nicki was so funny I loved it.

    You’re expecting the Limited Edition Popsugar? I thought that was coming out later this month. Can’t wait to see what’s inside.

      Yes! It shipped at the end of last week? They will sometimes ship earlier when it sells out quickly. I can’t wait!

    OMG I was cringing on the inside during the Nikki vs Miley moment. At first I thought she was kidding, but Rebel Wilson’s face did not make it seem like that was a planned or rehearsed moment.
    As for Kanye….I just hoped we would get a little performance. Which I guess we did, I was just hoping for one of the musical variety haha.

    I’ve had ice cream made with liquid nitrogen a few times on vacation in Florida and I loved it. I’m very excited to find out that there’s somewhere in Michigan that I can get it. I’ll have to stop by there next time I’m in that area.
