4th of July + Weekend Fun

Hi lovelies! So I'm recapping this past weekend plus some 4th of July fun today. Got to be honest, after a three day week I'm not really looking forward to the full five days of work this week. Can we not ease our way back in to a full week? I know, boo hoo, right?

So the 4th was fun, we started the day out at the flying field, which was fun but hot as hades.

By the time we left there I was SO ready to be out of the sun!

Next was lunch at a friend's house, I made the dessert (obvs), these cookies and also banana pudding: 

Then we went to the beach to watch fireworks, our tradition for the 4th! We were out there early which left lots of time to chill on the beach and enjoy the shade and the ocean breeze. Why don't we go to the beach more?? 

This weekend involved hanging out with these cuties on Friday night: 

Enjoying my garden: 

And then a lot of this: 

It was my first weekend in a while without a cake job, so I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxation time! What about you? How was your weekend?

Dear Bath and Body Works,
Stop sending me all the emails with the deals and the coupons and...just stop. My wallet can't take it and my husband is starting to give me side eye with the piles of Wallflowers and hand soaps. ENOUGH.

Dear Summer,
I like you, I mean you're not my favorite season or anything, but you're cool because of my birthday and longer days. But can we stop with all the rain now? It's getting a little ridiculous.

Dear football,
I miss you. There is nothing good to watch on Saturdays and Sundays. Please come back.

Dear carbs,
We need to talk. You're really great and all, and it's been fun. But I think we need to break up. You pretend to be my best friend and we have so much fun together. Then suddenly I realize my pants don't fit and I feel like crap. It's not me, it's you.

Dear decaf coffee,
I used to enjoy you just for the flavor, but now I'm getting old and I need the caffeine to function at work. Or maybe I've built up too high of a tolerance to caffeine and it doesn't effect me the same as it used to. Either way decaf, you're kiiinda useless now.

Dear life,
Could you ease up a little? I don't need it to be smooth sailing all the time, but a little break here and there would be great, mmkay? Thanks.

Remember Me?

So that was a really long blogging break. I'm not even sure how to start other than to jump right back in. So hi! How's things?

I guess I'll jump in with a few things I've been up to since my last post (over a year ago, yikes):

  • Went on a somewhat impromptu trip to Savannah and SO want to go again

  • Adopted a bird (Like, an Amazon parrot, he's huge) 

  • Started a new job in a new industry (partially why I fell off the face of the blogging earth, it kind of consumed my life for a while) 

  • Working on completing a certification for said job

  • Celebrated 10 years married to this guy

  • Actually developed a slightly greener thumb and am totally obsessed with gardening now (grandma alert) 

  • Thoroughly enjoying that my in-laws live a few minutes away from us now and we see them all the time (I have the best in-laws ever, BTW) 

  • Discovered I love off-roading with Adam and our fellow Jeep friends (who knew?) 

  • Met some awesome new work friends (they are seriously the best, we even hang out on the weekends and don't get sick of each other!) 

  • Fallen more in love with coffee (obviously) 

  • Got back into cakes again and loving the creative outlet + side hustle cash

  • Hung out with the cutest kids ever (AKA my nieces and nephews) when my SILs were in town

I guess that about sums it up. What have you been up to??
