The Highlights

I'm looking forward to a fun weekend.  This week has been busy, but good at my house.  It's been HOT and we've tried to pack as much summer fun into it as possible.  Lots of grilling, playing in the water and being outside in the shade.  Hello summer!!

1. We had homemade strawberry pie and ate lots of grilled food this week.  This is my favorite summer dessert.  What's your favorite summer treat??  I also love grilling for dinner and making sure there are leftovers for lunch.  I fixed grilled chicken salad several days this week.  I always have a hard time getting enough veggies in each day so a BIG salad really helps with that.

2. I have never been interested in any Jennifer Lopez inspired items until now.  Kohls has started carrying her accessories and they are really pretty!  I had a hard time deciding on only one pair of earrings.  These are super light, sparkly, a great size and I want to wear them every day.  They were $9 and I think they're pretty perfect.  Have you seen this Jennifer Lopez jewelry line yet?

3. We've been enjoying Watermelon Salsa week long.
It's the perfect summer side dish/appetizer.

4. My husband said he was taking care of dinner one night this week and showed up with Chinese take out from our favorite restaurant.  It was delicious.  I loved that he knew my order without having to ask and that he took care of dinner for the night.  It was perfect.

5. Olive learned a new phrase and says it all the time.  My husband taught her to say I'm on top of the world when she's up on the counter.  So she requests, errrr demands, to stand on the counter and SHOUTS "I on TOP of the worldddddddd!"  It's pretty adorable.

Hope you have a great weekend :) Thanks for stopping by my blog.
