Happy 4th!

Our friends Lois and Tyler were kind enough to host a lovely celebration for the holiday! Tyler grilled some BBQ and everyone else made tasty sides. Top it all of with a few s'mores and homemade mint mojitos and was truly a wonderful time.

1 avocado
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt

Made this for lunch this week and could not believe how well it turned out! Highly recommend it! 

Hidden Lake Winery

We had the best time this past Saturday discovering this beautiful winery. Ben's uncle was performing that night so he invited us all to join him! It sat right on a gorgeous lake and the weather was perfect for sitting outside. I'm sure the wine won't compare to anything I find in napa in just a few short weeks, but Spencer and I really enjoyed the bottle we shared.

You're never to old to need your mother

She was my saving grace last week. I had the kids from Tuesday morning til Friday morning while the mom was out of town, and there is just no way I would have survived without her there. We had some nice time in the morning to do some shopping at Trader Joe's and DSW, and even found some steals at a church flee market. Even though it was so much work and we were both completely exhausted, it was still nice to talk and be together.
