Grill Time!

Good morning…yesterday was a great day! My HOOP came in….and I am HORRIABLE at it but I am learning so its all good 🙂


My friend Crystal took me out to lunch at Maracas in Deep Ellum and I had the best potato enchiladas ever. (THANKS CRYSTAL) It was whipped potatoes with cilantro and cheese with a chipotle cream sauce on top.  DELISH!

Decided to walk off all the food I had just eaten so Jason and I walked to Ace Hardware to get a few things. We have a little camping propane grill that we have never used and decided it was about time! Two propane tanks for 5.99….cant beat that.


Last night we made slider burgers, dogs and quinoa salad. Hung out with neighbors and enjoyed the wonderful summer (in spring) weather!

I practiced my hoop on and off throughout the evening and one time I was actually able to keep it going for about 6 rounds…then it fell on my big toe! ( this hoop may only weigh three pounds but that is a lot when slammed on your toes!) I will defiantly be wearing shoes from now on when I hoop.

Below are pictures and a quick description of our bbq menu items from last nights cook out. Many more to come now that we busted out the grill!
