Do y’all have somewhere near you that shows outdoor summer movies? We do, and I love them! The Koka Booth Ampitheatre in Cary, NC is such a beautiful space. The grounds are very well kept up, and it’s right by a lake, so there’s a cool breeze on even the hottest nights (a huge relief in the Carolina heat!). They show recently released movies on most Thursdays in the summer for just $3 a ticket! John and I went to see The Social Network on Thursday.
One of my favorite parts? They let you bring in food and coolers, but they also have a neat row of independent vendors selling treats if you don’t feel like packing it in. We brought cobb salad from home, effectively checking off two items on my summer to do list in one go.
Locals, check out the rest of the summer’s movie schedule here!

Just a quick reminder that the giveaway for five Better Homes & Gardens subscriptions ends today! Head over to the original post to enter.
To tide you over in the meantime, I thought I’d share a few of the delicious-looking recipes I found on their site the other day. Can’t wait to try!
Red Beans and Rice Burgers
Avocado Basil Pasta
Chickpea Salad with Grilled Pita
Yes, I love pasta. And basil.

I probably do not need another swimsuit (especially since I currently live disconcertingly far from the seashore), but these two blue and white seersucker numbers caught my eye. Isn’t that bow adorable?! What do you think — would it be too overwhelming in person, or just right?
Top suit from Aerie (top, $20, bottom, $15 — also in red and white). Bottom suit from amourouse on Etsy ($55, made to order).
