I’m baaaack. You know you missed me. I couldn’t stay away. So I’ve been in mega cleaning mode for the past two days. My poor little dude has been sick (again!) and so we’ve been hanging out at the house, which is good because that way I accomplish more, and spend less money. Believe me, there is way more than enough projects to keep me busy around here. One of these days I may even post and brag about my progress.
Okay, I know I’ve been talking about it, and here it is finally: Photo recap from our Blue Moon BBQ and Bunko End of Summer Party!
I set four tables up in the backyard…I didn’t get all fancy as I did with Anika’s Birthday, (sewing my own table clothes and Birthday Banner) I went to Costco and picked up a package of disposable Vanity Fair tablecloths, and then used some old brown wrapping paper I had and cut it down and made table runners. Then I cleaned out a bunch of random jars that I have been saving and filled them with tea lights, and Viola! Instant decor. That is a bowl full of peanuts by the way. 😉
Aww, the food. We always have a feast. Here’s just some of it. Tasty homemade burgers from a grass-fed cow. We went in half’s last year with my brother in law and bought a cow. You really can taste the difference. And it’s so much better knowing how it was raised!
There’s also a layered cob salad, whole grain tostada chips with mango salsa (it’s SO good!), and I made meat, olive, and cheese skewers (those didn’t last long!) and we had potato salad, baked beans, corn on the cob, etc…all the goods!
Some of the deserts, oh, and I had a little Solo Cup fun. I set out a sharpie so everyone could write their names on their cups….but then I decided to have some fun and googled “funny made-up names” and pre-named them all! It was a blast 🙂
My delish burger!
Me and my BFF Carolyn, sipping on “Blue Moon” Riesling!
