The Sweet Life: What's on the Menu?

Last week was one for the books...
The house was in dire need of attention after being gone for two weeks.
There was more catching up to be done than hours in the day.

Followed by a series of mishaps...
Spilling half a strawberry milkshake in my lap and car while trying to do a nice thing for my husband.
Plugging my external hard drive with 3 years worth of family pictures in to my computer to find it was blank (we are hoping it is just a connection issue....but there may have been some tears).
Working 3 shifts this week and coming home after the last grueling shift to find the upstairs of the house a sweltering, 88 degrees. Thanks to Bardi Heating and Air for a quick and time efficient fix.

Now to the exciting things...
We have been needing to buy a new and larger refrigerator for quite some time. With the amount of cooking and hosting we do, we were busting at the hinges of our current refrigerator. There are some fantastic sales out there and we took advantage. Come Wednesday we will have an extra 10 cubic feet of cold food storage space! Unfortunately this does mean our meal menu is BORING as I clean out the fridge and freezer with creative meals.
We are heading out later this week to get an early start on Fourth of July in Saint Simon's Island. It is one of my very favorite weeks of the year!
I am teaching a friend of mine to sew, and we may or may not be making matching outfits for our daughters Wednesday. They may not have a sister yet but we can pretend they are sisters for the time being!
