Life Lately

Since I took a little (unintended but necessary) break from blog-land, I decided to do a life lately post to catch up with you all!

We've managed to squeeze in a few date nights here or there which is always nice :)

We've even made a trip to the drive in and plan to do this as much as we can this summer!  This is one of our very favorite date night things to do together!

I'm trying my hand (or thumb) at gardening this year and so far so good!  I'm just doing some tomato plants to start and I can't wait to see how they turn out.

Snocones are a must this time of the year, especially since we're out running around in the heat a lot!  We actually weren't impressed by our first snocones and found a new place that is SO much better!

Our church teamed up with two others to do a cookout and concert night!  It was so much fun!

Beautiful views at a cookout! 

I love getting a few minutes outside at lunch when I can! It's so refreshing (if it's not too hot).

We are fully in lawn care & compost season which means we're pretty much busy all the time.  It was a bit of a shock last year but this year we knew what to expect so it's not as bad!  We operate on some crazy hours but it's totally worth it.

New welcome mat!  Find it here.

Summertime cookout food makes my heart & stomach happy!  The cake at this graduation party didn't disappoint either :)

So that's a little of what we've been up to lately!  Work, business growing, date nights when possible and just trying to survive busy season :)  Hope your summer is off to a good start!


  1. Sounds like you guys have been busy! The drive in movies sound like so much fun and yay for snocones! Glad you were able to find a place you liked the second time around! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. Sometimes you just need a break!! Woo hoo for summer date nights! Those are the best. I can't wait to go to the drive-in soon. It's one of our favorites, too!! Love that new door mat, it's so cute! Hang in there during busy season, y'all got this!! :)

  3. Looks like you've been enjoying yourself! That view from the cookout are awesome! xo, Champagne&Suburbs

  4. Snocones are MY FAVORITE!! I am all about the berry flavors. Good luck with the tomatoes - I can't wait to have my own garden this summer! Very happy to see you back in blog land :)

  8. I've been wanting a snow cone so bad lately.. all the cold summer treats! Good luck with the tomatoes - we grew them last year and it was fun to finally see results!

  9. Wow! So much summer fun! We love sno cones :) And the drive-in sounds awesome! We need to find one here in San Antonio...I think there is one but I'm not sure. The church cookout and concert sounds like something right up our alley! So much fun!

  10. Wow!! You guys are staying really busy outside of work! Glad to hear things are going well and you're not just working all the time. ;)

  11. I love that mat it is so cute!!! That cookout also sounds like a lot of fun. We are growing tomatoes for the third year in a row along with some other things. Yes even here in a big city it's possible! Haha. It's fun though. :-)

  12. Glad you were able to get a good break in! It's refreshing! I'm glad your back now :)
