Busy, Busy Bees

So Randy and I have been so busy! This week has been lots of work both at home and at the office. But we have had some great times!

Last Saturday Randy and I didn’t feel so great; so we stayed home, cleaned and relaxed. Sunday we went to church and then after church, we had a picnic. Well… sorta… the ground is still soaking wet. So we ate on our back porch! Close enough, right?! 😉

We had some awesome B.L.T.s. Fresh tomatoes, fried green tomatoes, lettuce, bacon and some thousand island dressing. Randy had a sandwich similar to this on our honeymoon. He calls it “The Charleston BLT”. And I made some peach lemonade! Which was fresh peaches pureed and some lemonade.

(I think I am going to wrap all our sandwiches in parchment paper and tied with baker’s twine from now on! Just kidding… but seriously… aren’t they adorable?!)

Then for dessert we had s’mores in a jar! It was wonderful! Probably the best dessert I have ever made! Here is the recipe:

Monday night we had our Life Group over for game night. We had pizza, salad, beer, the perfect chocolate cake and twister!

Collages

And before anyone panics… no the gun was not loaded and of course, we kept it away from the kiddos! The boys just talked about guns for half an hour and the girls talked about clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc.

And the Allens brought us some beautiful sunflowers from their yard.

Gorgeous, right? I need to plant some flowers like these in my yard pronto!

So that has been our last couple of days! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and I hope you are enjoying your week. Remember, its Hump Day! 🙂
