Patriotic project

Since its summer time, and I don't have a lot on my plate during the day, I decided to work on a little sewing project for some precious kids I know.
And since Ty will be celebrating his first birthday on the fourth of July, he got an extra special shirt!
Here's one for my friend's little girl who will be celebrating her very first fourth of July
With a surprise on the back

Anniversary surprise

On Tuesday night Josh told me I needed to pack a bag because we were leaving after he got off work on Wednesday for a surprise anniversary trip.  He wouldn't tell me where we were going only what I needed to pack for a couple of days. After I picked him up from his office and we headed to Charleston!  We stayed in this amazing bed and breakfast in Mt. Pleasant.  
The room had six french doors lining the sides of the room.  J tried to convince me that I have now faced my fears of staying in a hotel with outdoor hallways, but I told him that a B&B in a quaint little town was totally different than a motel on the side of the highway.
 The bathroom had a beautiful claw foot tube with bead board paneled walls.  The entire place was just gorgeous!
We spent most of the time hanging around Charleston and doing the "touristy" type things...carriage ride, eating, museum tours, etc.  We did have lunch at what is apparently the top restaurant to eat at in Charleston.  
At HUSK they have a different menu for lunch and dinner each day and it take several weeks to get a reservation for dinner.  The lunch crowd is not as busy so J was able to get us a reservation on our actual anniversary.  They aren't lying when they say its so tasty!

Thanks Love for one of the best anniversary yet!

Growing up

Being at Megan's wedding brought back so many memories for me and my own wedding.  One was that I got to see some of my sweetest "kids."  
I babysat for Lucas when he was still just an infant sleeping in a crib...and now he's almost as tall as me!  Sydney was a jr. bridesmaid in her cousin Megan's wedding and has grown so much since being a flower girl in my wedding.  
These are "my kids" four years ago

Woodley/Burton wedding

I have known Megan since she was in elementary school.  She and Aimee were very close friends all growing and sometimes they would let me come hang out with them at Megan's pool.  Megan got married Friday night and had a super fun reception.  It was so good to see some old friends that I don't get to see very often.  

Have I ever mentioned how much I love a good wedding!?  Well, I do and this one brought back many memories of another wedding at the same church almost four years ago. {sigh}  Sadly, J and I didn't even get a picture together at the wedding but I promise he was there.

Pinterest recipe review

Lately I've been trying out a couple recipes I've found on Pinterest.  
This was super tasty but I didn't try it with the arugula because mine had gone bad by the time we got around to making this dinner (story of my life!)  It made a TON so invite friends over for this one.

This meal also made a TON. I need to work on keeping the mixture warmer because all though everything was cooked on the inside, only the outside got hot.
