2012 YIR: July

I love July! It's usually the warmest month in Wisconsin and yet cooler than most of the cooler months in Florida. It's the end of strawberry season, which means I'm enjoying the fruits of my one day of picking. One of my favorite new recipes is a Peach and Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. I think I made it about 10 times. SO delicious!

July brought the end of Christopher Nolan's Batman in the form of Dark Knight Rises, which for me was good but not great. Crazy, I know, because I LOVE Batman. I enjoyed everything that Nolan has done with Batman but I wasn't crazy about how he handled Talia only because I have the biggest crush on her (I do mean Talia in all forms ... the comic book Talia, the Animated Series and Marion Cotillard is of course smoking hot) and wanted her role to be so much more. Also, movie premiers bring out the weirdest people. It's enjoyable. :D
To celebrate Margie's birthday, we enjoyed a trip to the Mall of America. I do have to say there was some poor planning on my part because I didn't even realize there was a Container Store in the area until we were leaving at the end of our trip and there was no way the hubs was stopping.
