Welcome, July! + This Week's Menu

Happy Monday & Happy July! 

We are officially full-swing summer now and I'm trying to soak it all in (100 degree temps and all). I love everything about this season, but this month is especially fun: H's birthday, my birthday, friends' birthdays, 4th of July, and lots of other exciting things to look forward to. It's funny how such a key piece of happiness is having something to look forward to, isn't it?

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite memories/photos from June as a little look back on the past month as I look forward to this one:

We started off the month at the shore on our weeklong vacation...

Did lots of swimming and "gardening" (aka watering the mulch)

We spent time in my hometown enjoying the annual Parade of Homes (and some horses!)

We baked cookies, made pizzas, and C got a haircut.

Of course, we set up our first lemonade stand!

Celebrated the incredible dads in our lives (and speaking of incredible and dads, C had her 2nd theater experience with Steve watching Incredibles 2!)

Spent lots of time at the playground (and C mastered the monkey bars!)

And we welcomed our friends' new babies into the world - two new sets of precious twins (not my pics to share, but trust me, they are cuties)!

Finally, we ended June with a night out for momma.

Now onto our weekly menu! 

This Week's Menu:

Sunday - Homemade pizza & cucumber slices with ranch

Monday - "Chicken" nuggets (we like Morningstar), fries (these!), & corn

Tuesday - Eggroll stirfry (trying this recipe for the 1st time, will report back!)

Wednesday - 4th of July! Grilling chicken kebobs, with rice & corn on the side

Thursday - Lemon pasta with peas (we use this recipe from NYT, so good)

Friday - Fish sticks, mac & cheese, peas

Saturday - Out!

Sunday - Out! 

Hope your July is off to a wonderful start! 


  1. Yes. Please let me know if you love that eggroll stir fry. I love July and all the fun that it brings!!!

    1. I'm so excited for this month - glad you are too! I plan on trying the eggroll stir fry tomorrow and will let you know how we like it. :) I have high hopes.

  2. I love your grainy girls night pic - what a great way to finish off the month! Your picks for children's clothes are so cute by the way - the lemons swimming costume is so adorable!

    1. Aw, thanks Joanne! My older one actually has a matching lemons suit -- I couldn't resist. ;) It was such a fun night out with my girlfriends but MAN my feet are still hurting. Sign of a good time, I guess!
