Happy 4th of July my sweet friends!!! I hope you all have a relaxing, festive, and safe holiday today!!
Today I am finishing up my weekend recap where I left off on my last post. Sunday morning included a workout, walk with the pups, a trip to Lowes and Walmart, and an afternoon of prepping food while my husband was out at Top Golf with his little brother (from big brothers big sisters).
Sunday night my mom, step-dad, and aunt came over for dinner to celebrate my mom’s birthday, which is actually today!!! Happy birthday, momma!!!! We are SO beyond grateful for you and everything you do for us!!! I hope you enjoy your day lounging by the pool and reading a good book. 🙂
For dinner we had rolls, a fruit salad (watermelon, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries with lime juice and chopped fresh mint leaves), an arugula salad (arugula, craisins, goat cheese, and pumpkin seeds), a grilled corn and tomato salad (tomatoes, grilled corn, avocado, cilantro, scallions and a citrus dressing), grilled salmon and grilled shrimp!
It was all so yummy!!
After we finished dinner we brought out the chocolate cake my step-dad got for my mom!
We sang and she made a wish!
Beautiful cake from Publix.
I’ve told yall before, but my mom cannot leave our house without playing at least a few games of ping pong. She is obsessed and I have to admit, we always have a blast when we play. My husband and I don’t often play when it is just us, but our ping pong table gets used 99% of the time we are entertaining company.
Jon and I played my mom and aunt in doubles and then my mom and aunt played a few more games. We were all sweating by the end. 🙂
Our little spectators! My favorites. 🙂
My husband and I always love a good excuse to entertain. We are off to Georgia now and have to get the car all packed up! Have a great 4th of July!!!! xoxoxo
