2fer Tuesday.

2 RECIPES WE NEED TO DISCUSS:


I want to try this recipe....

Yum-a-lish!


Tonight I tried this recipe...

It was seriously DEE-LISH you guys!
I didn't grill mine {because Joe wasn't home and hello? I don't even know how to turn our grill on. Lame, I know}....

so I baked mine in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30-40ish minutes total. 

I also added some green chili sauce on the top and then we served it with a side of sour cream.  

2 RANDOM THINGS:

1.  Yesterday the temperature in my car read 122 degrees.
Yup, you read that right.
1-2-2- DEGREES!!!!!

It's pretty much an oven here in AZ.
Like....imagine a blow dryer ALWAYS blowing on your face when you walk outside and that's what it's like here.

We're hibernating this week.

Ya know when in cold weather states...people stock up on food and necessities so they don't have to go out in the blizzard?

That's what we're doing here....but in the heat.
I literally waited for the sun to go down tonight so I could take London to the library.

2.  I want to read this book:

I'm looking forward to our yearly trip up to southern Utah where we stay in a cabin and I spend most of the time on the front porch reading.  I have a long list of books I want to read and this is at the top.  Has anyone ever read it? Thoughts?? Book recommendations?

This {Father's Day} Weekend:

* Friday morning started out with a just 'meh' pedicure.


Have you ever asked for a callus remover {my feet were NASTY!}....only to have them pretty much rub/grind/sand your feet raw? 

I could barely walk on them for the rest of the day!

*Stopped at Goodwill afterwards.
Because remember....obsessed?!

I swear they have the BEST books there.
I buy SO many cute books for London there for like 50 cents.
Totally beats paying full price.


SUPER excited about this find.
Can't wait to read it with her..

* Date night Friday night at ESPO'S.


This little gem has quickly become our favorite.
It's tiny and looks like a hole in the wall but MAN is it good mexican food.  

We weren't quite ready to go home to the kids afterwards 😅 and so we shopped around for a bit.


SUPER excited about my new pet gate find for Cubby - - from Ross!
{Gotta love Ross!}
Looks SO much better than the dingy baby gate we had hangin around.

* We finished the night off by watching Dateline...


You guys!!!
Joe and I could NOT stop laughing our guts out at the dude with the big hair!!!

I mean COME ON!

* Saturday morning we loaded up the kiddies to go and see...

Image
SUPER CUTE!
And wayyyyyy better than Cars 2.
{How disappointing was that one?}

Popcorn is perfectly acceptable for breakfast, am I right?

* Saturday night my sister threw a 50th Birthday Surprise PARTY for my bro-in-law.


He was SUPER surprised and it was oh so FUN!

Joe and I got there early to help set up....my sister made the cutest details....




Such a fun night celebrating with family and friends!

* Father's Day on Sunday!!!


Both my parents were speaking in their ward and so we all went to hear them speak.  Listening to their talks and testimonies always brings me so many happy emotions.  

Just so grateful for their significant examples to us all.


Also: I never really realize just how short my dad is until he stands next to my husband and brother-in-law.😂

Also Also: my dad wore a purple tie for his talk.
Purple is MY favorite color.
I think it was a silent nod to me since I'm his favorite child.
But shhh...don't tell the others.

* Father's Day brunch at my parents house afterwards.


SO yummy.
My mom's breakfast casserole >>> everyone else's.

* We spent the rest of the day at home, taking a nap and lounging around in our jammies.  Just the way I like it!


Our Father's Day Feast per Joe's request:
Ribs, Baked Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli, Biscuits and homemade chocolate chip cookies.

SUCH a fun weekend celebrating!


So grateful for this guy.
Not many dads would go to such an effort to match his Mary Poppins-loving-daughter for Halloween.



SO grateful for my own dad.
His heart is bigger than his afro...if you can believe that!
😜

Blessed, indeed!

Girls Camp Printable Tags.


It's summertime which means....
young women all over the world will be attending 
GIRLS CAMP!

I used to LOVE girls camp as a teenager.
Lots of fun memories were always made.
{Especially that one time when my friend and I hid in the upper level of our cabin so that we didn't have to go hiking with the rest of the group.  Yup.  I was that girl.}

Girls camp is a time to be GIRLY.  And CRAFTY.  And CUTE.  And I guess...OUTDOORSY if you're into that sorta thing.😂

'Secret Sisters' happen at girls camp and so does something called 'Pillow Treats'.

Don't stress out about it though - - I've gotcha covered this year! 





Inspired from the #1 seller in my Etsy shop - - I've created THIRTEEN different tags for you or your girls to downoad, print and attach to little treats {ALL of which can be found at the $ store}. 


 


These little treats are SURE to be a hit and stand out as that extra little something.




You can purchase these tags in my Etsy shop HERE.
Upon purchase, you will be emailed ALL 13 tags to download and print HOWEVER many times you need!

And speaking of Girls Camp...


I've also created some fun little TESTMIONY TISSUE tags.
Because...if you've EVER been to a testimony meeting at girls camp... you KNOW everyone and their dog is gonna start crying. 


All you need to do is download, print and attach these tags to a small package of tissues. {At the $ store they have a package of 8...for only $1!}


You can purchase these tags in my Etsy shop HERE.
