Summer is here! It has been awesome so far! I feel like we’ve had some fun get togethers and special things to go while also not going 1000 miles an hour. A lot of the year wizzes by but I’m loving this season we’re in. Our herb garden is taking off and the tomatoes are doing well.
This month was Mr. J’s biiiiiiirthday! His Birthday Burger was an Ultimate Mexican Burger with chorizo and topped with beans, queso, & guac.
A new smoothie! Finally! Mojito Smoothie was new, with our own mint plant. We had a little smoothie demo at work and did this one, and a twist on this peanut butter & jelly smoothie.
And all the toast! I gave myself a self-imposed challenge to create some more interesting toast toppings!
Vanilla Almond Butter + Blackberries + Maple Syrup
Ricotta + Arugula + Bacon
Pesto + Tomato + Burrata
Nutella + Strawberry + Cinnamon
You know, I miiiight keep the toasts going in July. I make the rules, I can do what I want! They’ve been fun and I have a few more ideas. Stay tuned! I’m psyched for a few days off annnnd later in the month is a week at the beach!
The Little One:
We’ve been swimming! He wasn’t into it the first time of the season but then he went in and had a great time the last few times. We gave him a hand-me-down tee-ball glove from his older cousins and he plays with it daily. He’s loving the grilled foods.
Year of the seasonal decor: I did it! I framed a watercolor popsicle print annnd I got blue & white scarf with little tassels for my nautical mantle.
do more dinner prep more in advance: I’m on it. I’m focused on quick dinners to allow playtime outside or a walk before it gets dark.
read more (and always carry my book on me): I read Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
watch more movies: we watched/cried-our-eyes-out to A Dog’s Purpose
cook more fish: I had ton at work, does that count?
focus on clothes that I really like: none this month
