I had to have some blood drawn on Saturday to get my Collective Blood Count. I was really sick with a severe viral infection. They needed to see what my white and red blood count was. This is actually the third time I've been pricked in about 2 months, and this is the worst bruise of them all! Either that nurse was terrible or I'm just really prone to bruises! Either way, this is super gross to look at, so now I'm going to share it all with you!

#13 - Visit the beach.

Well lookie there! I didn't even realize that our trip to Georgia last month resulted in checking something off my life list.


Now seriously....when can we go again?

Fun with Sparklers!

We went to a friends house Saturday night for a cookout and some fireworks fun!

We splurged on getting 12 BIG fireworks and it was so worth it!!! We also had the cops called on us because we were disturbing the neighbors. Apparently they didn't enjoy shooting fireworks after midnight as much as we did. The visit took us all by surprise, because I don't think any of us knew what time it was. Oh, well we didn't even have any more to shoot off after he left so it was just as good.
We also got some BIG sparklers and spelled things out with them. It turned us all into giddy 6 year olds.


We took our Whiz Kids to my parents neighborhood pool last Saturday. They didn't know how to swim, but they sure learned fast!

We ate lunch at McDonalds, then swam for 3 hours. Those kids were plum tuckered out!

From my garden

Man, I feel so proud of my amateur gardening skills when I go outside and pick veggies for dinner.

Right now, we have an abundance of lettuce. We're trying to eat a lot of salads because I don't want it to get all wilty and bad and then us not be able to eat it. Because that would totally defeat the purpose of growing it!

This is what we have had to eat so far with our lettuce...

Taco Salad with black bean corn salsa

Greek Salad. Just for me, Stephen doesn't like the feta or the dressing.

Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad
