Happy about...

ginger apricot muffins.  These muffins were so delicious right out of the oven.  I cut back on the ginger significantly because ginger can be over powering and while I like it, a little goes a long way for me.  The only thing I'd do differently is incorporate the apricots into the batter rather than baking them on top.

For years I've wanted cafe lights over my courtyard and my husband checked that off his honey-do list.

This paint is amazing.  I painted one of my bathroom vanities (post coming soon) with it and I like it so much I've looked into being a distributor of the paint and I plan on painting my kitchen cabinets with it.

My girl and I had a play date with another blogger.  She lives within walking distance and has a daughter the same age as Little Miss S and they might be in the same kindergarten class in the fall!  The world gets smaller everyday!  We brought her two potted beefsteak tomatoes to show her our thanks.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

A Little Bit of Our 4th

We kept our fourth very simple this year.  We stayed home.

We had one of our good family friends over.

The food was simple

and fresh.

We wore our red, white, blue.

We sang and danced on tables (taking pictures of three little kids is almost impossible!)

We had fun.

We roasted marshmallows.

We really enjoyed ourselves!
