What I'm Loving Right Now

1. Top of the list? My Dad! Though I love him ALL the time. :) We enjoyed a very fun Father's Day with the family yesterday, going out to dinner, chatting in the garden, giving gifts and sharing stories and childhood pictures. Love it! I stole this following photo from my Mom's blog, so cute!:
2. My nephew turned 1! I can't believe it! My very best friend's little boy is actually a year old now. How time flies! We will be celebrating his Birthday this Saturday and I have a lot of baking to do! :) Can't wait! I'll be making some of these: 3. Gardening! As always, this time of year means planting up all my pots and veggies. It's been a hoot! I've got so much dirt under my nails.... (another reason I can't do acrylics in the summer, boo!). I can't wait till all the flowers spill over the sides: 4. Job applications! Ok...not much fun to put together, but the idea of changing careers right now is exciting. I've got my fingers crossed that my application for my dream job comes through. I hope, I hope, I hope! Wish me luck! 5. Sister time! I recently took my sister on a road trip to take a Stagecoach ride in Virginia City. So much fun! She was so surprised and we had a blast! I love my time with her, my best friend. :)

Backyard Camping

My goal this weekend was to scoot out of town and sleep under the stars somewhere. My sister and I woke early on Saturday only to realize that our to-do lists around the house were too long to leave. Darn! Well, we got all of our tasks done and still did some camping---in the backyard! We had a fire and cooked s'mores. We BBQ'd and drank beers. We set up our tents and slept under the stars (and subsequent rain last night). It was wonderful! Even if I was a stone's throw from my bedroom, it still feels so relaxing to sleep in a tent. :)
Had to keep the Bear warm as the evening got cooler.
My tent in the yard.
Our make-shift campfire. :)
