Pictures from the Picnic

Our Independence Day shindig turned out to be quite the fun day! We had my parents, sister’s family and their dog, in-laws and their puppy, my cousin and her daughter, and a friend over for a cookout and it was a lovely day.

Jimmy and I prepped the house in the morning by cleaning, cooking, and getting the yard spruced up. Everyone came over in the afternoon and we grilled, chilled, and enjoyed watching the dogs and babies run around!

Just popping in to share some pictures so I can reflect on the fun, blessed day all over again 🙂

Jimmy and I were wiped. out. on Sunday. We went to church, cleaned up the house and yard, and then went back to church in the evening.

We did manage to sneak in a few frisbee tosses after Sadie went to bed on Sunday night, which felt like the perfect way to end the weekend.

Tell me about your weekend!

Currently: July 2020

How is it July already?! I kind of feel like it’s still March. Anyone else feel that way? Regardless, it’s July and I am loving summer! Here’s what’s currently going on in my life with a few affiliate links included!

Current books Just finished up Simple Pleasures and now I’m onto this memoir. Sadie has been loving the crafts from this book and learning about colors in this lift-a-flap book. Jimmy and I are still reading our Couple’s Devotional and The Purpose Driven Life together as well!

Current food Baked beans have been extra delicious lately. Something about summer makes me crave ’em.

Current toddler product Sadie has had this little trampoline for a while, but we brought it outside for the first time and it was like a whole new toy, haha.

Current drink Starbucks coffee. Jimmy bought me the Komodo dragon beans for my birthday and we have been loving our morning cup even more than usual. 

Current baked good Cowboy cookies! I had never made them until recently and now I’m hooked. I have to have one every day 🙂

Current pet product Niva is still blowing her coat like nobody’s business, and this brush has been helpful!

Current joy Sadie growing up and understanding more and more. It’s really neat to talk to her and she understands what we’re saying. 

Current blessing Spending time with family ❤

Current project Our back patio renovation is still trucking along thanks to Jimmy’s hard work! He added some plants and fresh mulch and rocks yesterday.

Current fun Making a scrapbook from our camping trip pictures. I thought about making an album online and having it printed, but that takes all the fun out of it for me. I love figuring out layouts, picking stickers, and using colored paper. 

Current cuteness We had a cookout yesterday and my cousin from New York was visiting and brought her daughter. We took pictures of my niece, Sadie, and my cousin’s daughter and they are too sweet!
