End of Summer Lovin'

I hope that you all had a lovely holiday weekend! Ours was great, even though we began on the wrong foot. Labor Day Weekend started out for us with a broken down car in a massive thunderstorm... $600 later and a not-so-happy-me resulted in the need for a little (inexpensive) retail therapy.

Some thrifting was just what the doctor ordered. So, my husband and I packed up the car and headed out to a couple of flea markets. I found some items that I have been pining after for a while now! Another aqua mason jar to add to my collection (tip: I added flameless votive candles to these so that I could keep the rustic silver tops on), some vintage kitchen tools (an egg beater and an ice cream scooper) and an old and weathered coca-cola crate. Some fabulous finds and a road trip with Jake lifted my spirits!

On Labor Day we had a family BBQ. My dad (Rick) smoked a pork shoulder for 8hrs and grilled some mouth watering ribs. We were all in meat induced comas for the remainder of the day. Beware: food porn photos to follow...

It was a great weekend filled with delish food and family. I'm ending this photo-filled post with just one more pic (because I couldn't resist), our niece (Adelaide) during our family BBQ.


  1. Aqua Mason jars = one of my love languages. Very nifty of you to use the flameless candles.

    Looks like I'm gonna have to copy you!

  2. Just noticed this comment (I need to get with it!) Please copy away.

    Might I add that I am a HUGE fan of your blog and am so excited that you stopped by :)
