MMRR in August

September seems to have sneaked up on me. Especially since we're over a week into it and I've yet to recap August on the blog. Better late than never, right?

Mardi Gras Salad
I'm still obsessing over this salad from Voodoo BBQ. I made the boy go back about a week later so I could have it again, and we'll see how long it takes me to convince him to go back again.

Without a doubt, the high point of the month had to be the BSB concert.

In August I reviewed 6 books and 6 movies.
The Tudor Secret by C.W. Gortner
The Tudor Conspiracy by C.W. Gortner
Etched in Sand by Regina Calcaterra
Coming Home by Mariah Stewart
The Bequest of Big Daddy by Jo-Ann Costa
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Wolverine
The To Do List
We're the Millers
Kick Ass 2
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
The Grandmaster
My favorite would have to be The Fault in Our Stars, but I really did love The To Do List.

Looking back every month since April I've shared a post from 2009. This month is no exception, I guess there's just something so nostalgic about the first year of the blog, especially this month's moment which recaped my first date with the boy.

What are your meals, moments, reviews, and remembering from this past August?


  1. Busy month! That salad does look tasty!!

  2. Yum - that salad looks so good!

    My favorite meal in August was probably the dinner I had at Colicchio & Sons in NYC, moments were seeing the Biltmore with my best friend, walking the High Line in NYC, and sadly, getting my RA diagnosis. I reviewed one book I think? And I remembered how a year ago August I was getting to my peak week of marathon training and feeling so strong...

    1. Amazing how much can change in a year, right? But on that note, who knows where you'll be a year from now instead!
