The One with [DQ] Blizzards

fresh cilantro is the bomb.
breezes blowing through the house is appreciated.
great times had at Chris & Katie Thomas's wedding.
having the wedding pictures deleted from my camera is not a good thing. (Dad E., can anything be done?!)
why am I watching the US Open? like father like daughter I guess.
rearranged basement makes me much happier to dwell there for heat relief.
should I move my computer down?
hanging clothes on the line makes me happy. yay frugality.
my hair is done in this crazy cool way today. I'm kind of impressed.

you are all invited to our 4th of July party. on the 4th. of July. from 1pm until whenever.

yesterday celebrated dads. I love my Dad. and I love Kevin's Dad.
today is my Mama's birthday. Mom, I will make a cake for you at our July 4th party.

it's good to reminesce now and again. especially with the wonderful slideshow from our day of wed.

tonight we will have a date. on our bikes. to the library. to get library cards. and books. and movies. for free. I'm way too excited.

it's like Arthur said, "Having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card!" If you don't believe me, see here.

first reese's DQ blizzard in w a y too long. delish. In my opinion, Michigan is slacking in the DQ location department. My hometown has 3 within 10 miles of each other. Now that's what I'm talking about. I grew up on dilly bars!

I really hope I win this giveaway from One Frugal Foodie. Cookies for everyone--including this gluten intolerant girl.

time spent with family is never wasted. especially when celebrating the 50th anniversary of your grandparents. in Frankenmuth. with the whole family. I'm proud to be a part of the clan.

  1. I like your interesting new writing style :)

    OMG I LOVE DILLY BARS!!! I also grew up on DQ as it was within walking distance of my childhood home! It's a wonder I'm not a fatty!

  2. I totally know what you mean! My mom and I took regular walk to our DQ too! (as if walking there negates the treat. ;))

  3. I grew up on Dilly Bars too!! There was a family in our church that owned a DQ!! We had them free at all church functions!!
