Soaking Up the Last Few Days of Summer

This weekend was a perfect way to end the summer and get ready to start a new routine since Jaydon will be in kindergarten as of Tuesday!
Saturday morning was a beautiful morning for the kids and I to work in the garden, and we enjoyed swinging in the swing set. Lily pushed me. 😉

We spent the afternoon as a family, taking the kids out to eat, shopping, and dinner by candlelight. I found a new flavor of my favorite hummus at Albertsons.

Jalapeño Hummus

It is SO good! Let’s not forget a little spicy too. Heaven.

Jayson grilled steaks and grilled my veggie kabobs. Fantastic!

1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
6 large slices of green and red bell pepper
6 large chunks of red and white onion
3 large chunks of pineapple
1/2 cup of fat free Italian dressing
Kabob sticks
Gallon ziplock bag

Directions:
Put all of your veggies on your kabob in which ever order you prefer. Place them in your ziplock bag and add dressing. Marinade for up to 2 hours. Grill for 3-5 minutes on each side. Enjoy!

Sunday was perfect! I started the day off with hot yoga with a girlfriend and then some girl talk at Starbucks. 🙂 I came home and had lunch. I have been craving a tea party with my Mom so I made one of our favorite tea sandwiches with a twist.

Jayson makes the BEST Pina Coladas and it is most definitely Pina Colada weather!

It is preseason football and the Cowboys are playing the San Diego Chargers tonight. Go Cowboys! I would be lying if I said I’m going to be watching the whole game. I will be watching True Blood from 8pm-9pm and pretending the loads of laundry are NOT calling my name! I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend.

Good Times!
