much better

thank you all for your sweet words of encouragement on friday!  you'll never know how much they helped.

per usual, things were back to normal for us by friday afternoon.  i cooked him a welcome home dinner, which is always fun.  since we weren't together on the fourth and he had to work that night, i made us a little fourth of july redux.  we grilled brats with buns {he was in charge of that} and i made homemade potato salad, a cherry pie {which he pronounced "f*cking amazing".  i'm inclined to agree.}, and paula deen's spinach and strawberry salad, minus the cucumbers.  the rest of the night was spent at our small town's outdoor summer music series and then onto a local watering hole with some friends.

saturday found us winetasting with the same group of friends and our dogs in tow.  is there anything better than a big, cold pitcher of sangria, a cheese plate, and the people you love on a gorgeous summer day?  the beau took me out to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner and then to a local ice cream place for dessert.

and to cap off a wonderful weekend, i hit the road yesterday to head to topsail island for a vacay with my parents and sister.  our house is right on the water, the weather is perfect, and the fresh seafood is calling my name!  i'm enjoying some MUCH needed time away from the office and working on that perfect summer tan.

i hope y'all had equally wonderful weekends!
