On My Radar

This has been a great week! My mom and dad came into town and I’ve been having the best time showing them around. We even made a trip out to Fishkill Farms again for a little apple picking and pumpkin picking. I would honestly go every day if I had the chance. We had the windows of the car rolled down and it just felt so peaceful and crisp. If only I could bottle that feeling up in a jar and save it for a bad day down the road.

Here’s what was on my radar this week…

ONE // Smarties Is Thriving

This is a really inspiring article about the women running the retro Smarties brand. I had no idea about the company so it was cool to read that it’s a family run business with three Gen Yers currently at the helm, all granddaughters of the founder. Makes me want to go stock up on Smarties!

TWO // The Town of Giethoorn

I have officially added Giethoorn to my travel bucket list. I was dying over the photos. Instead of paved roads, the entire town gets around little canals. When I raced at Henley, we trained long hours every day and I used to love rowing through neighborhoods on the water. So idyllic. This is how I want to retire or something!!!

THREE // 7 Delicious Popcorn Toppings

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I can’t get enough. I want to try a bunch of these popcorn combos… especially the Lucky Charms marshmallow one. (I mean, who knew you could BUY the marshmallows. Like, no cereal. Just marshmallows. IN BULK. #addstocart.)

FOUR // The Rise of Rifle Paper Co

This is a wonderful profile on Anna Bond and her company Rifle Paper Co. I have long been obsessed with Rifle Paper Co… I first blogged about it back in 2012! As a fan, I think it’s been wonderful to see how big the company has grown.

FIVE // Bindi Irwin’s DWTS Tribute to her Father

You’ve been warned… do not watch this in public. Remember Bindi Irwin, Steve Irwin’s tiny and adorable sidekick? She’s grown up into a gorgeous young woman and currently competing on Dancing With the Stars. Her dance this week was in memory of her father and, whoa, it hit me in the feels. I was a puddle throughout this entire video. It’s so moving. The dance is so beautiful and truly perfect if you ask me.

What’s been on your radar this week?

Oh my goodness. The entire clip of Bindi from the start of the package to the end of judging had me in tears. So beautiful in a heartbreaking way. She's truly amazing and has a heart of gold.

Popcorn is my favorite food (even made it a wedding favor), and I promptly ordered those marshmallows as soon as I saw the link. No shame. Can't wait to mix them with popcorn and maybe make homemade brownies with them, too!
