‘Twas another beautiful day…absolutely perfect for a party by the lake.
This afternoon, Jay and I headed up to Saratoga for a Memorial Day party with family, who just so happen to be some of our closest friends, too. I love these girls.
I still can’t believe that in just three short months, these two are getting married! It was exactly a year ago that we celebrated their engagement.
Our crew spent a good majority of the afternoon sitting in the sunshine, chatting away, and snacking on some munchies. I really made a conscious effort today not to over do it with the snacks.
I tend to munch mindlessly a lot of the time when in these situations, especially when the food is right within reach. However, I was happy with my ability to really only over do it on the broccoli. That’s acceptable, right?
I also decided to stick with just one beer today, since I feel like I’ve been imbibing a little more than usual lately. I blame it on the weather.
Jay and I eventually departed from ‘Toga and made it down to meet up with my parents for a bit. Thankfully, dinner was involved, which I was more than ready for.
For some reason, nothing sounded better to me today than a juicy burger from the grill. I honestly don’t crave burgers all that often, but the aromas coming off of the grill today were smelling too fantastic to pass up.
On the side, I had some tuna pasta salad, and some of this corn and black bean salsa which was just incredible. The chips, unfortunately, were a bit stale from sitting out, but this stuff was good enough to eat as-is. Mmmm-mmmm.
For dessert, I enjoyed a couple mini chocolate chip cookies (not pictured) along with a piece of birthday/Memorial Day cake. This piece was exactly the way I like it: super moist cake, and frosting with enough sugar to be able to coat my teeth.
I’m sorry, I know that sounds terrible. But I don’t mess around with frosting. The more sugar, the better. Thank goodness I don’t eat the stuff every day. It’s all about moderation, folks!
In case you didn’t already see them above, I’m now rockin’ some killer tan lines and a pretty hot sunburn (<—pun definitely intended) thanks to being outside all morning and afternoon. Luckily, at least my face isn’t burned!
So now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go apply some aloe and write “SUNSCREEN” on my Target shopping list…
I swear, I can be such a space case sometimes!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!
Question for the Evening:
Are you good about applying sunscreen? What SPF do you usually wear?
