It’s been a while and I am sorry about that. But as the school year and wedding approach I am finding myself with less time to write on the blog. I am going to work on it but I make no promises.
We began the weekend with the boys spending the afternoon at the pool while I prepped for our evening supper club. I made smoky scalloped potatoes and a blue cheese bacon dip. Both were absolutely wonderful and I will be sharing more on this later. Saturday was spent school shopping followed by an afternoon at the beach. We got Thomas his first wet suit and he was, understandably, extremely excited to try it out. You know that feeling when you purchase some new outfits or a new gadget and you can’t get home soon enough to try them out? Well that was Thomas and despite the 80 degree weather he threw that thing on and we hiked down to the beach.
During this time we also got the majority of our wedding invites out. It took me the better half of the week to get everything together, but they are out and I am very thrilled about it! Shout out to Olive Manna for having the perfect peach twine that added a little extra to the invites.
To end the day on Saturday I was inspired to make a simple dinner completely handmade. Which we accomplished as a family, which made it such a treat. The menu? Homemade pasta with homemade pesto. It was quite an adventure. We all took turns rolling out the dough and mixing it. In the end I completely understand the use of something like this but I enjoyed doing it all by hand, successfully.
After a couple of fun packed days I was looking forward to a relaxing Sunday, which entailed getting the rest of the wedding invites out, helping with some bridal shower planning, prepping for kindergarten, and purchasing honeymoon tickets! Yipee!
