Lately...

What's been going on with y'all lately... 
Here are a few photos from around here!
I had a package of brats in the freezer and decided to make kabobs instead of serving them on a bun.  Yum!
This was dinner last Friday night.
 After church last Sunday we tried the knew Sol location downtown, it did not disappoint.
 I am trying to create my own version of the Twine and Twig necklaces, buying one is not in my "costume jewelry" budget.  I really want to find a thicker leather strap, and I think the wooden beads are too large so I've already exchanged them out, but if it turns out well I will share a full tutorial here.
 I scooped these up from Costco last week and they were a perfect weeknight meal.  I served along with steamed edamame.

Pool days! Love my sweetheart's face in this one:
And bringing you up to speed, this is from this past Saturday when my mom and aunt watched EB for bath/bedtime and we were able to sneak out for a cocktail or two.

Ok so what did y'all think of GOT last night?  I didn't like Ed Sheeran's cameo...I mean, he's great, but it sort of brought me out of the fantasy world...I much prefer unknown actors in roles like that.  Anyway!  Still good Sunday entertainment.

Fourth of July Weekend

Hey hey, I hope everyone had a fantastic LOOOONG weekend.
Seriously, Friday feels like a month ago!
Let me think back...
--
Saturday we did yard work, cleaned house, and prepped food for a backyard bbq we were hosting on Sunday...all with my baby perched on my hip...oy.

 K grilled delicious buffayaki wings for dinner Saturday night.  
Sunday we had our cookout/pool party with friends.  Lots of fun.. It was definitely a lesson learned that for EB's First Birthday party (waaaaaah!) we will be keeping things super simple so we aren't busy in the kitchen/on the grill during her party.  This time around we had slow smoked ribs, grilled corn, potato salad, and watermelon.

Monday was EB's 9 month well check.
I noticed a land surveyor in the mural at our Pediatrician office.
"There's 'da da' at work!!"
After our appointment we hit the pool.
Notice anything different in the pic??
K's beard is gone!

Yesterday (the actual 4th) we went to the new Bagel Nation in West Ashley for breakfast in our patriotic rompers:
And then we had my parent's over for an early dinner.
I made mashed cauliflower au gratin as my side (to go with crock pot pulled pork and baked beans) and it was pretty good. Definitely have some tweaking to do to make it a "post worthy" recipe.
EB's First Fourth of July!!!
I truly can't believe it's July...school supplies were going out at Walmart this morning.  Wow.
Hope y'all have a great week!
