Peachy Keen...

Judging by the tweets I caught up on around midnight last night and the alarmingly ridiculous soundbite played on my morning radio show, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I didn't miss much last night on Bachelor Pad. And by "didn't miss much" I actually mean that I missed a slew of drama, a promise for infinity and a sad attempt at a love song.


Ahhh...the unashamed joy of being young and in love...The man has a duty to fulfill. What on earth would Vienna do without someone there to guard and protect her heart? I missed bachelor pad because I was having too much fun visiting with friends over a cheese board and an amazing bean dip. We won't tell weight watchers how many points were consumed last night. That will be between me and the cheese board....

I digress...This past weekend was an eventful yet uneventful weekend. We played catch up, did lots of laundry, cleaned the house, did all of our grocery shopping on Friday night (which was awesome because we were the only losers shopping on a Friday night!) which made Sunday night really awesome because I didn't have to fight all of the soccer mom's for Dave's applesauce and string cheese. It's always crazy this time of year. My regular grocery items fly off the shelf in rapid fashion. They are buying for their 3rd grader heading back to school...I am buying for my husband. Some things never change!

Some fun events from the weekend...This wonderful note my sister handed me when my family came over for dinner on Saturday night. I opened it and this is what I found...


Inside were very sweet words about me standing by her side as she and Brad start their lives together. It is my extreme pleasure and honor to serve as her MOH. The next few months will be very exciting as we plan her special day. She also gave me a delicious wedding cake cupcake from Gigi's bakery! The sad part is...I ate it before I could take a picture because I'm cool like that. #MOHFAIL

We had a great time with our family grilling burgers, listening to Taylor's game (he got another W!) and Teenie made her world famous homemade vanilla ice cream! I decided to try a recipe for homemade Peach Cobbler I found on The Reluctant Entertainer. It.Was.Awesome! This recipe is so easy, very few ingredients and absolutely delicious! I'm sure you could make it with apples, cherries, blackberries...whatever tickles your fancy. I know I will make this in the fall with apples!

I'm thankful that with 7 of us there, we ate just about the entire cobbler. There was just enough left over that Dave and I had a little bite yesterday but not enough that I can eat it everyday this week. Because let's be honest, I have no will power, so I would have!

Mmmm looks yummy! Our caterer made peach cake last night for our Rotary meeting. It was awesome!

I watched BP last night...for the very first time. Is Vienna just playing him? Does she actually love him back??

The fact that I didn't know you were on twitter makes me sad. I have remedied this situation by following you now!
