Memorial Day

Tidbits and pictures

Hey there and happy (early) Memorial Day! I hope everyone takes a moment to reflect on all of the sacrifices that our servicemen and women have done for the United States over the years!

I was on the North Shore of Pittsburgh this weekend and was able to look at the Southwestern PA WWII Memorial. It was really awesome.

I’m happy to report that Jimmy thoroughly enjoyed his Oreo cake.

His brother and I bought him a telescope for his birthday. He’s already obsessed with it and I think it’s cute. Not the telescope, but his love of it haha.

After church on Sunday, Jimmy and I celebrated his birthday by visiting Ohiopyle State Park.

I spent Memorial Day with my family and Lola! My brother, who now lives 20 minutes away from my family(!!), came over and we had a cookout.

We also had barbecue chicken, scallops, cheeseburgers, avocado salsa, baked beans, and watermelon.

I watched my dad braid my mom’s hair. So adorable.

Lola was walked and made a trip to the gas station with me, as usual.

Now, about the title of this post, “Decisions.”

I have some exciting news. My brother and his fiance asked me to bake cookies for their wedding in July! Right now, we’re in the process of brainstorming which types of cookies they want me to bake. All I know for sure is that I’ll be baking 500 cookies. That’s about 42 dozen!

What cookies should I bake for Bill and Racquel’s wedding?
