We ate our usual Friday night Mexican. My husband can not get enough Mexican food, haha. It's his favorite. Then out of the blue he mentioned shopping. This is VERY rare. He even said we could go to Hobby Lobby or Jo Ann's...shocker! :) But we decided on Bass Pro Shops because he had a gift certificate + we could take Vera (our soft coated wheaten terrier). We ended up not buying anything. We ended the night with ice cream from Baskin-Robbins to cool us off in this HOT weather.
I went to the farmer's market on Saturday + got so much local produce I could barely carry it all to the car. How pretty are those flowers?
I'm so proud of our tomato growing!!! I hope it keeps growing + we actually get to eat it. I swear I found another tiny one growing, but now I can't find it. We have lots of blooms. I can't wait to see how many tomatoes we get to harvest (I hope at least one). I really never thought this plant would make it; It had a rough start.
I'm also growing basil + mint :) I have been putting the mint in my tea + it is so yummy!
I made a peach cobbler to take to a friend's house for dinner that night. It was delicious!!!
I also made a tomato "salad" with goat cheese + basil from my "garden".
On Sunday my niece came over to swim. It's the first time I've been to our pool all year. She wore me out, haha. We played colors (where you guess the other person's favorite color + if you are wrong you get dunked)...She stood on my shoulders + jumped off over + over again...We had a race to the deep end...
Zac + I ate watermelon.
It was the perfect weekend.
P.S. I hope everyone has a happy Independence Day! I'm just happy I get a day off work. We have no plans :) What about you?
