Out to Eat :)

I love going out to eat and loving every bit of my meal! I got to do that two days in a row! Yesterday, Memo and GD took my out to Red Lobster for a pre-birthday lunch. I got my regular, garlic shrimp scampi with a baked potato and a casear salad. Plus, I ate 3 cheddar biscuits :)

Eric and I went to Red Robin tonight to redeem my free birthday burger! Turns out, I decided to get a chicken sandwich instead of a burger. I got the blackened chicken sandwich which was amazing! It was spicy which gave it a great flavor. Eric of course got a spicy jalapeƱo was good too, I had a little taste. The parmesan garlic fries were soooo good! And of course since it was my "b-day" burger, I got a free ice cream sundae along with a great melody sung by awesome Red Robin employees. The chocolate sundae hit the spot to complete a great meal!

Already having a great birthday and it isn't even here yet :)

I completed the final item on my summer "to-do" list today which means summer is coming to an end. I have enjoyed my relaxing summer vacation. It was definitely stress free.

The final item on my list was the most important item which was my big sister's wedding shower! The event was a success. Emily spent the night Friday so that she was here early to prep Saturday morning. We made some really yummy veggie sandwiches that involved us using a food chopper for the first time. It was funny watching Eric and Em try to figure out how to use the thing. We also served dip that I made, some tasty strawberry punch, and Muddy's cupcakes. Yummy! Here are a couple of photos:Me and Em: The Hostesses :)

Summer List

I am working my way down my summer to-do list will be complete next weekend just as the summer is coming to an end for me! Since my last check list was posted I have accomplished a few of my tasks:

6) Redo master bedroom bathroom- complete!
7) Swim in a pool- complete!
8) Go on vacation- not going on one, so counting the trip to the lake, therefore complete!

Last on the list:
9) Host Paula's wedding shower- last thing left, coming this weekend!
Gotta get decorations and food supplies to prepare for my first experience as a shower-hoster! I am sure it will be a fun afternoon :)

Painting Party!

I got to do something that I had never done before this week! I went to a painting party on Tuesday night. A painting party is when you gather with a bunch of friends and you all paint the same picture. There is an artist that walks you through the entire process, and you leave with a painting that you have created! We all painted the same picture, but we got to choose our own colors to make it unique. Here is the whole group and then a close up of mine! It was a fun night!

America's B-Day

We spent the 4th of July at the lake for the 3rd year in a row! It was fun to get to swim and hang with the family. We ate BBQ and homemade ice cream! Sooo good :) JoJo had a blast like he always does at the lake. It was a great day. Then, we went to Memo and GD's to watch the G-Town fireworks. The finale was probably the best they have ever had! Fun times :) Hanging out by the shore!

Cool dragonfly that landed on Eric! Look @ its eyes!

The master bathroom is COMPLETE! I am very happy with the results. The tile looks awesome and the paint color matches well. Brent did a great job. Emily helped me get the painting done b/c that is not a job that i love. We ended up getting new light fixtures, a new mirror, a new faucet, a new shower head, and a toliet paper holder that we can actually reach! All the new silver touches look great with the new tile.

Here is the big reveal :)
