miscellany monday: phone dump!

Link up with Carissa!

Last week on Independence Day "Eve", we enjoyed a night out on the town with the Stricklands. The kiddos were spending some time at grandmother's and C&J were flying solo for the evening. Those two always equal a fun time! Wine'd Down, Dram, Oak Hill, Dave's- we kinda bounced around all over the place, but it's rare to have a night off in the middle of the week. Had to make the most of it!

We celebrated the 4th by relaxing in the pool, eating some good food, and hanging with friends. Kim was so sweet to invite us to join her family at her mom's lake house for their holiday celebration!

My patriotic dessert

Baby Colin (and a little leftover cookie cake)

A little Despicable Me for the car ride home.


We saw Ted last week. I can't believe that I actually enjoyed a movie about a potty-mouthed teddy bear. Seriously laughed my butt off. Oh, and I had Dippin' Dots for the first time in at least...ehhh, five years? Talk about a successful evening!

My SIL and her b/f came to visit this past weekend, and as usual, we loved getting to spend time with them. We had a casual dinner and then hit up several favorite nightspots.

Flame-dancers at Parkside

Yay college friends!

It was nice to be reunited with these kiddos after they returned from their trip to Neenee's. I guess Miss Addison had a bit of an epiphany while she was away, because she politely informed her Monkey that she would prefer to be called "Pretty Peanut" instead of plain ole "Peanut" going forward. That girl kills me!

Hope everyone had a good Monday!

I'm so jealous...I've been dying to see Ted. And as you've probably noticed, I'm doing some major blog catchup!!
