Weekend Plans

The calendar says this is the last weekend in June. How exactly is that possible? Hoping July passes a bit more leisurely, right? : ) Anyway, here is what we are up to this summer weekend.

Friday evening Rhett will be at the theater, where he spends a lot of his time these days. He loves helping out there, and I am so happy for him. Before he goes, I am planning a crockpot dinner of Japanese Beef with broccoli over jasmine rice. Remember, crockpots are not just for winter! : )

Saturday, Madison is working and we have a wedding to attend for my very dear friend. I am so very happy for her! She lived right across the road from me and I miss her. But I am happy for her and am excited for her special day.

Sunday is a special day here...Steve and I are celebrating our 23rd Wedding Anniversary. : ) Plans for the day are up in the air, but if I had my say, we would celebrate by doing something crazy like cooking on the grill and rocking on the porch with our littles afterward. : )  We do have Mass in the morning, and Madison works all day, so we will see what happens. In any case, I sure am glad I said I do that sweet guy all those years ago. : )

So that is what we are up to this weekend, my friends. I hope yours is happy and sunny and fun, whatever your plans may be. Thanks for visiting!

Pancakes for dinner. A summer favorite.

Peyton and I have been doing some Japanese cooking...

and it has been good. : )

Summer in PA is a blessing...

whether we are playing an evening game of baseball in pink winter boots...

or posing for pictures before Mass...

in summer sundresses, of course...

or running through the grass...

without a care in the world.

One more pic of my baby on her way up the steps to dine in Cinderella's Castle. : )

And a Happy Anniversary wish to my Steve!
Love you!

Happy Weekend, friends. : )

  9. Mmm... I love pancakes for supper! Come to think of it, I love pancakes anytime :) And you are so right, crock pots are not just for the winter. They are so nice in the summertime because it keeps the kitchen cooler by not having the oven on.

    Hugs to you!
