This Week...

...I celebrated Father's Day with the best Dad in the whole wide world

...I so badly wanted to paint my nails in Essie Coat Azure...but I never got around to it. Maybe this weekend?


...I created all you need for a True Blood theme party


...Shaun and I watched the True Blood season 3 finale in prep for Sunday's premiere...there was a lot that I had forgotten! legs got eaten alive by mosquitoes. I legit have 25 bites on them. They are itchy and soooo uncomfortable. This photo doesn't even do it justice. #ihaveissues

...I made zucchini fritters. And I can't wait to share the recipe with you.


...I had a girls night with some friends who I haven't seen in well over a year. It's not ok to let time pass like that. It's just not ok. We had so much fun. I can't wait to see them again next month...not after another year plus goes by.

...Shaun made English muffin pizzas. I love these every time we have them!

...Shaun and I watched the Game of Thrones finale. Holy $#%&! Anyone? Anyone? This show was definitely a surprise favorite of mine. I had the lowest of low expectations, but it turned out to be a fantastic show. The last 2 episodes had my jaw hanging open. Oh and Peter Dinklage, I think you rock the house.

...our power went out. Last night. I adore summer storms like that. Especially when it breaks the humidity. Though I don't think this one did. Yet.

...I was terrible about going to the gym. I vow to change this for this weekend/next week.

...I haven't been reading. I've been playing Scramble instead. #helpme.

...Next week I'm participating in Lauren @ Keep it Sweet's online bake sale. I'm dontaing a batch of one of my favorite creations...Butterscotch blondies with salted chocolate glaze. If you want to win a batch, make sure to check out her auction on Wednesday 6/29. I'll send another reminder next week :)

This weekend, we are getting our DIY on around this house since there is so much work to be done that we've just been putting off. It's not a good habit. We are also having dinner with friends and going to a barbecue tomorrow! I can't wait! And on a personal note, I will hopefully be healing these horrific bug bites. It's not pretty my friends. It's just not pretty.

What are your highlights from this week? What do you have going on this weekend? Are you a bug bit magnet, like myself?

Psst...if you want me to post the True Blood recipes from earlier this week (baked beignets & shrimp po'boys), let me know! I can put them up tomorrow if there's interest! :)
