2fer Tuesday.

2 NEW THINGS TO TRY: 


Yum-A-Lish!
PB + Chocolate lovers....you must try these!
They remind me of the Girl Scout cookie 'Tagalong'.


Harkins is an Arizona movie theater chain {best popcorn ever!} and NOW you can apparently buy different flavors of their popcorn at the grocery store! Score!!

2 QUOTES I LOVE:

This Weekend:

* Friday morning was spent sorting through old photos...

Me circa 1983? 1984?
This one cracks me up!
 
My Grandpa Lamoreaux and I at my graduation from
Southern Utah University
Year 2000
* We ran a few errands and I typed a few more of my Grandpa's letters...


* I brought dinner into a dear friend who had just had surgery.


Made one of my very favorite cakes for dessert.
It's a Jell-O 'POKE' cake - before it was frosted with Cool Whip and fresh strawberries.

* We spent Friday evening working on something SUPER fun at my brother-in-law's work...


I can't wait to share with you what these boys are up to.


* We ate Taco Bell for dinner {classy} and I tried actually organizing my boxes and boxes of photos on Friday night to put into photo albums.


* Saturday morning I organized my kitchen cupboards.
Bleh.
I felt like my pantry was a never ending PIT of who knows what! 



* The kids hung out at friends' house on Saturday night so Joe and I stayed in and enjoyed the peace and quiet...
with Dateline of course.

* Churchey-church on Sunday.


On Sundays we listen to classical music and I love it.
It's such a nice, refreshing break from the loudness of the normal stuff we usually listen to. 


I played the piano for my dear friend and her sweet daughter during Sacrament meeting.  My heart about burst listening to them sing this song.  It's one of my FAVORITES!

* Dinner at my bro's house in Phoenix Sunday night.


He lives in quite possibly the coolest house in downtown.
We LOVE going down there.


All of the doggy cousins were even invited!
There were 5 total.
😳😳😳
Who ever thought we'd be such a dog family?

Today's Creative Blog

LOVING this set of FREE printables for your 4th of July BBQ.

Our Good Family
I LOVE me some ric-rac!
And I LOVE anything that does NOT involve sewing.
Seriously...how cute are these shirts?!?


In Katrina's Kitchen
How cool are these layered drinks?
They involve only 3 ingredients:  Sobe, Ocean Spray and Gatorade.
LOVE!

1 800 Flowers
They added blue food coloring to these vases.
BRiLL! 
{Because seriously..finding blue flowers that look decent?! Super hard.}

And here's a couple of Patriotic shin-digs that our family has hosted in the past....

This {Father's Day} Weekend:

* Friday morning I ran errands and then met a dear friend for lunch at Moreno's.

I love 1 on 1 time with friends.
It's good for the soul.

* I spent the afternoon typing up MORE of my Grandpa's letters from WWII.


These letters really have been life changing for me.
They have my heart and I can honestly say I'll be sad once they're all typed up.

That said, it'll be fun to have them all completed and make them into a book for my entire family to enjoy! 

* We dropped by our friends' house on Friday night for a bit.
A bee flew into the house and Joe saved the day by hand vacumming it up...


There's nothing this guy won't do 😂.

* Saturday we attended the baptism of 
my sweet 8 year old nephew.


Puns on puns on CANDY are a MUST for the baptism boy!


After party at Joe's bro's house.


There's A LOT of things I love about swimming but my FAVORITE thing might just be how tired it makes my kids.
😂😂😂

* Prepped for Father's Day dinner on Saturday night.
I was in charge of dessert...


Homemade pies in the summertime are my FAVORITE!

* Churchey-church on Sunday.

We are so lucky to have this guy in our life.
He makes the world a better place!

* Father's Day dinner at my parent's house.


My nephew and his wife were in town and we had so much fun together.  

Also...


How my dad can sleep through all of our noise is beyond me!
😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Fun Find Friday.

I haven't been to Target in ages.
{I know, I know...what is even happening to my life?}

Today was the first time in forever and it felt GOOD to be back amongst those $ bins 😜


Having a BBQ this summer?
These picnic bench KETCHUP & MUSTARD holders are a MUST!


Aren't they the CUTEST?
{$5}


Love these stickers for when you wanna drop off some baked goods to someone!


These! Sandals!!!!
If only they had them in London's size.  Or MINE for that matter! 


These flamingo pinatas are just about the cutest things I've seen all day.  So are the pineapple ones, behind it! 


ANYONE would want to eat leftovers outta these cute containers, right?  I LOVE THEM!

Over at Hobby Lobby...


Darling burlap American flag bunting!
{All of their 4th stuff is 30% off now!}


Why would ANYONE need a life sized flamingo?
Do you put these in your yards? By your pool?
#creepy


I'm such a sucker for these paper placemats.
{Found in their fall YES FALL! section!}

And lastly...at Marshall's...


...they have RAE DUNN 4th of July stuff and it is OVER THE TOP cute!
