We are back from vacation! After a fabulous few days down at the beach, we’re now back here in NY and settling back into reality once again. Ohh, it’s so tough to leave the beach! But we all had a great time, and I especially loved the extra time with family. Especially this guy.
He is just the best. Sure, he makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes (like when he gives me that incredibly adorable smirk when doing something he knows he shouldn’t be), but man, he is just the light of my life and I don’t know what I’d do without him.
Emotional mom day here, obviously.
So now we’re over here working on getting our lives organized once again and settling back into a routine. After about a week off from exercise, I’m definitely looking forward to jumping back into that, and oh man do we need to get grocery shopping. The food situation over here is looking pretty sad. Thank goodness we had a frozen pizza in the freezer to cook up last night.
But one reason I need to get to the store is to make sure I grab all of the ingredients so I can make my absolute favorite 4th of July cookie cake.
It is seriously delicious. So I’m telling you, if there is ONE thing you make for this holiday weekend, definitely make it be this. You won’t regret it.
And in case you need some other snack ideas, check out this old post for some of my favorites. Guac, cookies, salads…so much good stuff in one place!
I’m also looking to make a batch of sangria this weekend because it’s been forever since I’ve had it and I could definitely go for some. Oddly enough, I actually like red sangria better than white (which I say is odd because I always prefer white wine to red), so I’m on the hunt for a good red sangria recipe. If you’ve got any, send ‘em my way! Although I may wind up having to give Kristen’s recipe a try, because hers never steer me wrong.
How good does that stuff look?
Alright, it’s time to get back to getting my life in order and getting unpacked and all that jazz. I’ll catch you guys tomorrow!
