I found these darling Cars pancake molds on sale for $3 at Williams Sonoma a few weeks ago. I carted them down to Savannah and Mother whipped them up for her grands. Now, I only wish I’d thought to use that $5 Williams Sonoma gift card I’ve had hiding in my wallet for well over a year now (of course then I’d have the same issue, but with a $2 gift card.)
This little firecracker came to visit her aunchie over the long July fourth weekend and I failed to share her darlingness. I could eat.her.up.
While the PCP was off with a friend, the baby met up with one of his friends for a Chuck E. Cheese play date. Has anyone else noticed how slim and trim and fashionable (?) Chuck has become? Even his buck teeth are less prominent these days.
Bestie E had us out to her place for a lovely afternoon of swimming, sliding, and grilling. And while we all undoubtedly enjoyed ourselves…
…Honey just might have had the best time of all.
There were some severe storms in our neck of the woods last month and a neighbor’s tree clipped the side of our house. I have not yet mentioned it because it just gets me all bent out of shape to even think about it. We have to get the corner of the house rebuilt, new gutters across the entire back of the house and a new chimney top. We already had the neighbor’s tree removed from our yard. And she now scurries inside every time she catches sight of us. I realize that it’s legally our responsibility to fix our house but that doesn’t make it any less annoying.
We’re still getting our Nature’s Garden Delivered boxes. I was a little crazy for that petite watermelon. Yummmmmm.
To offset all those fruits and veggies, we popped in Gigi’s to pick up cupcakes for Sister’s birthday. Hellooooo chocolate salted caramel (oh, and golden cola and peanut butter cup.) But really, back to the chocolate salted caramel (top left)…
The baby was all out of sorts when big brother spent the night out last week. The sweet little doll spent the whole evening in his sleeping bag on the floor of their room. Nearly broke my heart… but not enough to let him go for a night quite yet :-)
I picked up some dapper tees, polos, shorts and shoes for Honey and John at the Vineyard Vines summer sale. Now, I await with bated breath the Lilly summer sale!!
John has mastered egg in a hole. It is really quite tasty, manageable for a seven year old chef and crazy cheap.
The boys had a wonderful time at VBS again this year. The Catholic church didn’t do things like this when I was a kid and I’m so glad that our littles get spend time learning about our faith in our church with their neighbors and classmates. Such a blessing!
The baby has spun quite a yarn about the “very little teeny tiny tooth right in the middle” that he lost and how the tooth fairy should come visit. It finally dawned on me that he was talking about the gap in his two front teeth. He would NOT back down.
Last but not least, my guilty pleasure this summer has been Pretty Wicked Moms. It’s a little mind boggling… in a really good, over the top, pretty unbelievable, often shocking way. Honey can’t stand to be in the same room when it’s on.
Happy weekend, y’all!!
