Happy Saturday, friends! Another summer week is in the books. Another week passed us by and I still haven’t been to the beach. I literally live 20 minutes (probably even less) away from the beach and haven’t headed down the shore a single time this summer. I’m a sorry excuse for a New Jerseyan.
So, fun stuff! I posted my first guest post on another blog 🙂 and it’s a dish I wouldn’t usually eat but totally had a great time making and photographing. If you’re wondering what it was, it happens to be Garlic Lemon Grilled Salmon.
I get a little sad every time I look at my calendar and see the numbers in August inch higher and higher. Soon enough it’ll be September and it’ll be cold again. I’m not necessarily complaining, I do love fall time activities. I feel like they get done a little more often than summertime activities because all of my friends are usually home and available for an apple picking, apple cider drinking, pumpkin carving, apple cider donut eating, scarf and sweater wearing adventure. We take our Fall (or Autumn…) here very seriously. What are some of your favorite Fall activities that I might have missed?
Being engaged to be married is no walk in the park. Dear fiance: I love you, but planning a wedding is so overwhelming. So far we’ve picked a season and the year. We’ve been engaged exactly two weeks. I realize I am ridiculous.
My pals and sisters threw me a potluck style engagement brunch today and it was so lovely – from the delicious food to seeing all my favorite people in one place. And the mimosas. I usually bring every food imaginable to potlucks, but for this one I just brought cold brew coffee. 8 cups worth was gone in about 6 minutes flat.
On the duller side of engaged life: I just got two pictures printed for our new picture frames as an engaged couple. I’m sure I didn’t really need that massively sparkly rhinestone encrusted Mickey Mouse picture frame as a souvenir, but in the heat of the moment I totally needed it. I don’t regret it. Not yet, at least.
Do you eat a certain food on a certain day? Like Taco Tuesdays or Pizza Fridays? We just eat whatever strikes our fancy at the moment, but I wish I could be one of those Taco Tuesday/Margarita Monday/Pizza Friday kind of people. I’m thinking of becoming a Stack of Pancakes Saturday kind of gal. Just a thought.
We (and when I say we, I mean the fiance) are hosting the fantasy football draft party tonight and I’m not sure if I’ll be sticking around or dodging the scene once the “festivities” start. I’m not a big fan of fantasy football (football on its own is fine), but I do love football snacks. Put me in front of a bowl of buffalo chicken dip and I am one happy gal.
What are you up to this weekend?
Until next Saturday!
