Summertime Mealtime

After having Brando's friend Big Shawners grocery shop for us, then come home and slave in our kitchen for four hours making three delicious meals for us that lasted us all week, and then hearing Allison rave again about her delicious meals made in advance for the entire week, I finally decided I would do it myself. After Big Shawners wasn't available to come over tonight and do it again, that is.

So, tonight, Brando and I grocery shopped and slaved for four hours to make three (hopefully all) delicious meals that will hopefully last us the week. Grocery shopping together was a BLAST, especially sending the boys in all different directions to get ingredients (out of the whole list, I'm pretty sure Brando and I only got two items ourselves), coming home and all four of us putting all the ingredients together - washing, chopping, putting together, all the while I was making the ingredients pretty in their own individual bowls whilst Brando made fun of me,
and then finally, FINALLY eating my delicious plate of chicken, red pepper, and onion kabobs marinated in soy sauce, honey, and olive oil with fresh green beans, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, and basil.
So excited for beef bourgouignon with red wine, carrots, and onions,
asparagus with fresh squeezed lime and garlic,
rosemary potatoes,
and goat cheese, basil, and bread crumb stuffed tomatoes.

A Quiet Moment

My dork of a hubby happens to be playing video games at a LAN party with eighteen other guys, so I finally have a quiet moment where I'm not chauffering kids around, trying new activities, spending time with B, or sleeping.

I am trying to catch up on the Bachelorette before next girls night, though :) , so this will be quick.

My birthday was this week! I turned the glorious 29! Cannot WAIT for my thirties when I will know everything *wink*. Since April I have had a boat reserved for my birthday and the moment finally came to enjoy it this last Sunday. After the initial freakout from sitting in the bow of the boat on the way out of the choppy marina, it was a BLAST. From beautiful lake scenery,
to watermelon mojitos,
to attempting to wakeboard (this is me attempting to water ski in too big water skis, but water skiing I've done before any way),
to watching the boys tube and have a blast,
to laughing with my boys and girlfriends,
to watching my sexy hubby wakeboard,
to dinner and drinks that smiled at me at Carlos n Charlie's after.
