Here are a Few of My Favorite Things From August

My August faves include a FAB BBQ roast (video below), a cute comfy pair of rain boots, and the best (IMO) slow cooker you can buy.

These Lemon Brownies Were an August Party Fave!

Here are some of my faves for August. Some old, some new, but all made me happy this month:-)

BBQ Pot Roast. 

This new pot roast is unreal. I posted the recipe and a video of me making it on my instagram story. It isn’t on the blog, so I’m sharing it below “instagram style.” The recipe is posted below.

My New Podcast.

Y’all, I just launched my official Family Savvy podcast~The SavvyCast. In this season of life, I am loving conversation and learning from others. I’ll be bringing guests on board to talk about various things that I find useful in some way. I have a few episodes out now; check them out if you have time:-)

You can find the podcast button at the top of my main page, or go to for a list of all episodes. There are currently four episodes, so please check them out!

My fave wedding video 

Ellie’s wedding went off without a glitch, and I have to share the best iphone vid of the night. The funniest moment was when her cousin Remy stole the show (during the wedding dance). The band (Act of Congress) gave Remy the pick:-)

Juliana Mayd Leather Earrings

The lil’ dancing ringbearer Remy has a very talented mama, Juliana, founder of @julianamayd. She makes leather accessories that are FAB. They are stylish and better yet, lightweight. She also makes SEC approved crossbody bags and larger ones also. Mine is in the works. I chose white cowhide and snakeskin. Give Juliana a custom order; you will love it.

You can reach Juliana by email at or DM her on instagram or FB a@julianamayd.

Strawberry Brownies.  

O.K. This strawberry brownies recipe is viral. AGAIN. But I’m not complaining. These brownies always deliver when you want easy + strawberry = delicious. Folks rave over these. I’ve actually loved this lemon version more during August. 

Best Rain Boots Ever.

These Hunter refined rain boots are fab. They are short (because who can actually drive a car in tall Hunter boots)? Pearly white (the color is “symbol”).  They look great with leggings and athleisure. I bought during Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; they are currently still the same price. 

My Secure Family

What is My Secure Family (and Why Should You Care) is a blog post I wrote about one of the BEST resources available today. If you have kids, know someone who does, or just want to learn how to protect them from the harm that is everywhere online these days, there is a must-know resource.  To listen to the podcast, watch a video interview, or link to all the resources available to you and your family, click here.

The Casserole Crock-Pot.  

If you want to rock a roast like nobody’s business, this is the workhorse for you. In the video below, I use it to cook the fab BBQ roast.  This croxck cooks more quickly and looks a lot better on the counter top. The stainless steel version is prettiest. You can get with a Bed, Bath & Beyond coupon but only online here.

August was a blessed month. Now, it’s time to dig into Fall and get ready for some FAB cooking for tailgates, holidays and more. Y’all stay tuned! And keep in touch! I am ALWAYS on instagram @family_savvy, and that is such a fun way to connect. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
