I’m obsessed with making iced coffee drinks in the summer. Well, just this summer. I’ve never really done it before this summer. Stop saying summer. But I’m really into them now. And I’m even more into adding protein powder to it. Thankfully I have the delicious Formulx Protein Powder in my house constantly. After long days of emails and cooking and writing and eating, this little protein mocha is the perfect pick me up!

Can we just talk about the elephant in the room? What’s up with the guy who bit the other guys shoulder during the soccer game? Who does that? Someone is in your way, you’re all jacked up on World Cup Fever and testosterone and what do you do? Shove? Na. Trip. No way, too easy. Elbow to the mouth? Too obvious. Nope, I’ll bite the guy. Nipple is too aggressive, shoulder will do. That guy has issues. May I even say mommy issues. Not sure how that relates, but I’m going to say it. And he’s done it twice before? Tool.

It’s weird seeing so many people so excited about the World Cup. Mostly because it’s soccer. I literally hear NO ONE talk about soccer, like ever. But now it’s all everyone talks about. I don’t remember people being this psycho about it 4 years ago. It feels a bit bandwagon to me. Probably because I could give two sh*ts about any sports. Negative Nancy over here. My b.

So I don’t listen to country music, it’s just not on my daily playlist. All I really listen to is some sort of dance music. In the car. In the gym. That’s really the only time I listen to music. But I had 180 beats per minute. Country doesn’t have that very often. BUT I was invited to a Jake Owen concert this weekend so I’m going to it. I have some ankle boots that kind of look like cowboy boots, so I’ll fit in, right? Right. And I’ll act like I know the words. Fake it ’til you make it.

I really miss The Office. Why couldn’t that show go on forever?
