Chicken Fajitas Again!

Tonight I got the opportunity to see if I learned anything from my fajita lesson. We had Summer and J over for some grilled items. Look at the chicken I made, it's PERFECT!

Fajitas! YES!

Summer brought some burgers, too! They turned out awesome. We were going to make chicken sausages next, but all of us were stuffed.

Chicken Fajitas!

Tonight, we had Mom and Dad over so I could get a little lesson on the grill. Dad taught me how to make fajitas!

And look, I made that cilantro lime rice again, using the food processor this time, and it turned out green! YAY! The fajitas turned out great.

Happy Memorial Day!

Ben and I went out to Summer and J's to check out their new deck this afternoon. Summer made me an incredible pina colada in their new blender. I saw on the deck and dipped my feet into the icy water.

We were hoping to get in the pool (get in the pool on Memorial Day and have good luck all summer long!), but this storm rolled in:

So we headed inside for cards. Eventually the storm passed so we hopped in the pool. It was MAJORLY COLD so we got right in the hot tub. But we sure will have lucky summers now! Then we went inside for grilled food!

Summer had these sweet/hot peppers called pepperdews and they looked JUST like lips! Don't they!?!?

On our way back into town, I stopped by Gina's because she had offered me some cake. She was making a trial run for her wedding cake and LOOK AT HOW DELICIOUS. Seriously. It tastes AMAZING. It's one of the best cakes I've ever had, I bet! It's DELICIOUS!!!

Dad and Mom surprised me this weekend and declared that they wanted to buy us a GRILL!! I have been wanting a grill super bad. We went to Lowe's together and picked out this bad boy:

Naturally, we had Mom and Dad over for a cookout that night! Mmm, Magic Hat Hefeweizen.

We enjoyed some cornhole in the back yard. Ben's getting blonde already!

Dad and Ben doing Popeye shadows.

The very first items ever to be grilled on the grill!

Dad giving me some new grill lessons.

MAGIC MIDDLES! Burgers with cheddar stuffed into the middle.

Vana made DELICIOUS deviled eggs.

Mmm! Cookout!


Dad enjoying his burger. THANKS FOR THE GRILL, DAD AND MOM!

BBQ at Linda's

Linda was in town for the weekend, so she hosted a little BBQ out at her mom's house! She made some KILLER sangria.

Party porch!

Cornhole! We had two sets going. Linda and Logan tossing some bags:

Linda working the grill!

Mmm! Look at that proud little beercan chicken!

Linda's mom's friend made empanadas and they were FANTASTIC.

Ben and I!

Wild Blue

Tonight we had Vana and Tom over for some beers. Ben and I love blueberry beers, and were delighted to find a new one for sale at Lucky Dog. It's called Wild Blue Blueberry Lager.




Tom had Oberon. ALSO DELICIOUS.

Another photo of the blueberry beer because seriously LOOK. It sort of reminded me of Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss. It's pretty fruity, but stronger than Berry Weiss.

Eventually it was time to make hand mouth fart sounds. ALWAYS A GOOD TIME!

Go Tom!

Go Vana!

Always hilarious.


So funny.

Tears of laughter.


Ben and I got Rockband!!!!!!! We've been wanting it, but didn't want to spend the money. Amazon had this amazing special the other day, for only a couple of hours, and it was on sale for like $42 off! We ended up getting it for under a hundred dollars. It was MEANT TO BE.

Look at the box. Have you ever seen an Amazon smile that HUGE!?

Look! The box is almost as long as ME!


Aw yeah.

Charlie got right in that box, oh yes he did.


More guitar parts!


After we set it up, we had so much fun playing it that we forgot to take pictures. I'm sure there will be some someday, though!
