I love hydrangeas. My mom has 3 of them growing in the front and back yard. I actually took a big bunch home with me today too. Yay for summer and flowers!!

I feel like I've been running around a lot lately. As a result - I have been unplugging a bit on the weekends. I apologize for the lack of posts but I'm thinking...particularly for the summer...this might be a growing trend.

Not that I don't love you - I do. I just love being out and about more than behind my computer. :)

Thursday I went for a 3 mile run - the first in ages.

Friday I went into the office and ate a turkey sandwich with fake french fries.

They were not very good.

Then I took my dad out to dinner at Wild Fig. He had lentil soup and a Greek salad. I had hummus and chicken and shrimp kabobs with rice.

Both delicious. I saved one of those pitas and the leftover hummus. Jen and I ate it last night.

Late Friday Dave came out to LI as well. I made scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast both Saturday and Sunday.

And burgers and hot dogs for lunch (only the burgers got a picture - sorry!).

They were awesome - if I do say so myself.

Dinner was sausage and pepper heros from the Fire Dept Fair around the block from my parents. So delicious I forgot to photograph them!!

Sunday my mom and Jen came back from Florida. We went to the American Cafe for lunch to celebrate Father's Day. I had the Grilled Chicken + Goat Cheese + Pesto sandwich. I asked for potato salad - they gave me fries.

So I had to eat them. I ate the other half of this sandwich for lunch today.

Dinner was BBQ chicken over salad, corn on the cob and ice box cake for Jen's birthday. I set the table all pretty.

Did you ever make ice box cake?? You need to. All it is is fresh whipped cream and chocolate wafers. I may have eaten two covered in whipped cream while assembling. :)

I put two rows side by side because I didn't have a platter long enough. Works just fine!

This morning it was peanut butter on an EM and about a 2 mile walk with my mom.

UGH. This post took forever to upload today. Some of the pictures would not cooperate. I'm tired, headachy and a little bit grumpy tonight so I'll see you later.


  1. Hmmm, so Dave has met the parents and he spent the weekend with you and your family. Hmmmm.


  2. My mom and sister were away so just me and my dad for the most part but yes. He has.

    Angela - I love how I had like 4 days worth of food and this is your focus. ;)

  3. Not to mention CHOCOLATE AND WHIPPED CREAM! :)

  4. LOL. I can't help it. It's so cute!! And I'm so excited for you!!
