TWTW - Fourth of July edition

1. Thursday early dismissal meant a zillion errands and hausfrauing in a $1 red sequined tiara because it's America and I can be foolish when I please. MFD brought home some grocery store flowers, we had sandwiches for dinner and just chilled out.
2. Happy Fourth! The dogs fell victim to my patriotism as MFD spent the morning parading.
3. Pineapple wrapped in bacon for a barbecue. This was easy and a big hit. It traveled well and was still good served at room temp.
4. Fourth at the Lake - we spent the evening with family at my sister-in-law's lake spot with food, fire, s'mores, swimming, and fabulous weather. It was a great night. MFD bought special clothes for the occasion. Sleeveless clothes.
5. Saturday morning date with Laura: movies with smuggled in coffee (Laura would not unleash hers from the Macy's bag) followed by lunch at Brother's.
6. Deviled eggs for Saturday afternoon - I bake the eggs in the oven, plunge into an ice bath, peel and store the day before. I make the mix in the food processor and then put a bag in a glass to get the filling down to a corner. I snip the corner with scissors and pipe the filling in.
7. Saturday afternoon barbecue at Steve & Noelle's.
8. MFD had a showing right after and had no time to drop me at home...this appointment won't be long, he said. Read your phone, he said. One hour, lots of car sweating, one drug deal witnessed, and a major need for water and a bathroom later, we hit Dunkin Donuts...my third time that day.
9. Saturday night family trip to the river for fishing and walking, then to get ice cream.
10. Salads for the weekend and week, more on these tomorrow: corn & asparagus, shaved brussels sprouts, and asian ramen.
11. Updated my dining room table runner to my summer one made by Lori. I also got a new area rug at the front door and runner in the upstairs hallway from Ross.
12. Sunday lounging, egg muffins for the week (veggies prepped for the week too), ribs slow cooking in the oven before being finished on the grill, magazine reading and general relazing (relaxing + lazing, thanks Lauren for my new favorite word). I also watched a few seasons of Eastbound and Down because I can't help it. Kenny Fucking Powers!

On Mondays I'm doing a picture linkup with Kelli at Just Beachy. If you'd like to participate, here are the prompts through July. This is my photo for the prompt independence day. One of the things I love best is that everyone wears red, white, and blue. Some look more hilarious than others.
It was a great weekend with amazing weather, food, and framily. Happy birthday America.

  1. Looks like the best weekend!! Glad your 4th wasn't rained out. The sleeveless shirt is just too funny. The poor pups do not look happy being festive, but they sure look cute!! You need to show MFD the video circulating about how hot a car gets in the summer, you do not look comfortable. Ice cream and dunkins is totally deserved. ;)

  13. Lovin the pictures! It looks like a really awesome weekend! I loved deviled eggs so much. I made some a couple weeks ago that had cheese & bacon in them. I was in love.

  14. So I read your whole post and thought A) I wish my weekend had been as fun and successful B) I'm tired from how busy Steph's weekend was. Then I got your your picture practice picture and cracked up, I LOVE that hat. Hahaha

  15. I'm awestruck by your ability to pack so much into your weekends. Also, those deviled eggs looks delicious! How was Tammy?

    ReplyDelete
  16. So much festivity! And deviled eggs- love them and always have to resist finishing them off at parties. Would you recommend the movie?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sounds like another fabulous weekend that you squeezed in every minute of fun. How was the Tammy movie? I tend to think she is hilarious and I kinda wanted to see it! I think there is always an excuse to wear a tiara with no questions asked right? :)

  18. You have to find out where those shoes are from!!! :)

    Bacon wrapped pineapple is such a good idea. I'll have to try that sometime. Yum!

  19. I love deviled eggs!! Never tried baking them though, I have to remember that one. Anything wrapped in bacon... I will eat. I had to hit DD as well, I am fast becoming addicted to the cookie dough ice coffee... not good.

  20. Bahahah... you do NOT look pleased in the car picture. I probably would've thrown a fit. I'm not good at waiting PERIOD.
    What'd you think of Tammy? I thought the previews looked kinda lame but I've been hearing good reviews and it was #2 in the box office!
    P.S. Who wore it better (The Red Sequin Tiara Edition): You and Mae are tied.

  21. Sounds like an fun-filled weekend indeed with lots of yummy food and celebrating! Bacon wrapped pineapple? Well I might just have to try that. And the lakeside celebrations sound perfect!

    How was Tammy? I love Melissa McCarthy so will go see it this weekend if it's worth it. (Otherwise I usually wait til it comes out on Redbox)

  22. Who doesn't want a tiara for the holiday weekend? Love all the pics, and definitely think it looks like y'all had a good time at the lake. I bet Tammy was pretty funny, and I always sneak in coffee, tea, or something. I don't want a ginormous soda or candy, so I bring what I want!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Super fun! Love the photo of the shoes - perfect! I guess the dogs are good car riders? Don't get all tangled in each other? And I still sneak things into the movies. Although I have never tried coffee... Cannot wait to see more on the salads! The Asian Ramen sounds delish!

  24. Patriotic pugs for the win!!!!! Looks like you guys had a fun weekend! (Minus sweating it out in the car....)

    I have always wondered if baking the eggs in the oven worked. I fail at eggs...I always mess them up when it comes time to peel.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love how we both dressed our pups in patriotic gear!! My Gus wasn't too thrilled though!! Looks like you guys had a fun filled holiday weekend. I swear I think you guys are the most fun couple EVER and have the best friends! I want to come play with you guys!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Glad you had a great weekend/4th! Love your red tiara! Your deviled eggs look yummy and I had read about using the oven to cook them but had never known anyone to do it. Good to know, it works. Do you find them easier to peel?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, oh, OH! You have seen "Tammy"? I'm so excited to watch it. Is it worth watching? Have you seen "Identity Theft" with her in it? Highly entertaining stuff. Oh, and another question; can you come cook for me? I'm particularly interested in the bacon with pineapple; looks delish!

  28. So much goodness here! The babies look so damn cute in their patriotic getup. You had a quintessential independence day weekend, bbq's time on the water, so fun. That ramen salad is amazing too. I haven't made it in ages, maybe today. Will you come to California and take care of D and me, ha.
