What We're Doing. And Eating.

I'm back with the usual: it's Friday, it's warm and sunny, the food is good, and I love my little family.

This is what we've been up to this week:

  • A whole lot of playing in the yard. And an answer to why Fletcher thinks all Frisbees are his for the taking (a real issue when we're in a public place with him). And why no one can hold a candle to Hugh. They do this for about two hours a day:

  • Mandy and Matt were sweet enough to have the Savannah Family (minus Hugh) over for dinner on Tuesday. It was an impromptu get-together, which, really, is the best kind. Also, Iris and Opal light up my life. I spend an inappropriate amount of time plotting to make them mine forever*. A thank you to Mandy for these photos, with which I now want to wallpaper my house:
I don't know what it is, but this kiddo and I just get each other. We're bonded over a love of earrings and dresses and following rules and bossing people around. She's the bee's knees, that one. And growing up way too fast.

Opal is singing and dancing and spelling (!) and talking like a grown up and cracking us up. Um, and she's two. Did I mention they are both just brilliant?
  • Thinning seedlings and watering baby plants and getting so darn excited about this year's garden. Check back next week for a new How Does Your Garden Grow. Here's a little sneak peak:

  • And, just humor me for one second. Fletcher. Why is he so ridiculous? Hugh and I spend far too much time watching him and laughing. The dog loves some springtime weather:

Okay, now what we've been eating:

Grilled Lamb Chops and Mint Chimichurri, Mashed Potatoes - Easy, tasty, good for you.

Bagel Melts - I stopped at our favorite Savannah deli on Wednesday and got delicious bagels as a surprise for Hugh. I mean, gift giving is his love language. And I consider bagels a great gift.

Huevos Rancheros - Corn tortilla + black beans + over easy egg + cilantro + hot sauce = Hugh and I didn't speak for five minutes as we were inhaling our food. Feast your eyes on this deliciousness:

Chicago Dogs - You know how we feel about hot dogs around here.

And now it's the weekend! This one promises more grilling and gardening.

Enjoy it, friends!

*Don't worry. Their parents know I'm 90% joking about this. Okay, 80%.
