FOODS & COOKING:
Carrie's kick-ass guac. Our fav way to eat it was topped on steak tacos.
recipe, and I didn't have powdered sugar. We did end up topping them with Cool Whip. They were delish!!
Tortilla Crusted Fish. I used wild-caught Cod. It's topped with a creamy cilantro salsa. I definitely recommend it!
Bella Mia in Cary, NC. I love the perks of hanging out with my beer-selling D.
Pelican's Snoballs in Garner, NC. Close to our house and amazing. My favorite was the strawberry lemonade. They're super cheap and have tons of flavors. I even took my family to play putt putt there while they were in town!
More pizza on our summer trip to Topsail Beach, NC.
Our trip to Topsail Beach, NC. Seriously, the tube is a necessity for extended time in the ocean. Oh and margaritas.
Putt-putt on Topsail! Such a fun environment.
Topsail Beach balcony view. Perfection before a night beach walk with margaritas in hand.
Aquarium from my birthday trip to Wilmington, NC.
Beautiful farm wedding weekend in Sparta, GA. More pics from that to come. (Ps. I seriously need to learn to pose for pictures...scary.)
Finally read Room, which I loved. I also finished the Hunger Games series (thanks to Meghan for getting me started), although I'm not sure I loved it as much as others.
Yep, counting this as entertainment. I did a hard-core closet clean-out and organization session. Well worth it.
More summertime reading. Best gifts ever from D for my birthday.
Labor Day weekend, D and I discovered The Alley in Raleigh. They have awesome bowling and beer deals.
