So Long Summer

I can't believe its SEPTEMBER!  Every year the summers seem to slip by quicker and quicker…I guess I'm just having more and more fun!

I wanted to soak up every last bit of the summer this weekend, so Friday after work, I headed to the pool.  It was so nice to sit there, read, and just look out onto the golf course.  

Later that night, I headed over to a friends' house for a wonderful, healthy dinner!  He made a delicious pork tenderloin with veggies.  It was so nice to relax, enjoy the meal with a cocktail and watch the Vols tackle NC State (Ok, I guess relax and football don't really go together well, but you know what I mean).

Even Bax was entertained!  Poor thing was put in this mini golf bag…but at least he got to join his mom for date night!  :)

Saturday I woke up bright and early and got some things done around the house before heading over to the pool with friends.  I got to catch up with Leslie and baby Hadley for lunch up in the club (poor Hadley…it was so humid and warm out, but she was a trooper!), and then headed back down to the pool for some R&R.  It might not have been the brightest day out, but we made up for it with orange crushes and cocktails poolside.  Even the adults were going off the slide!  It was a great last pool day of the year!  I will really miss seeing all the people at the pool over the next couple months!

Sunday I was invited to go to the Grand Prix.  I headed down to meet the group at the hotel and then we had some mimosas and bloody's before heading out on the town.  We made a couple bar stops and eventually got to our seats.  This, unfortunately, was the only picture I have of the races…and it was just the practice round!  They were going so fast, and apparently I am not coordinated enough to take a picture that quickly!
We headed over to Federal Hill (after quite an obstacle of fences and stairs from the Grand Prix set up) and had some apps and beverages.  

Needless to say,  I was ready to come home Monday morning to see my little boy and relax with him!  

I tried out this new Pintrest recipe I found the other day, as I was carb-craving!  It was DE-LISH!!!  Even Bax liked it!  I know, I'm a bad mom...

Garlic Bread Pasta
Pasta (recipe called for linguine, but this is what I had on hand, and it is always whole wheat in this house)
Breadcrumbs (I used Panko)
Olive Oil
Lemon Juice
Garlic Powder Salt (I used plain garlic powder)

Toss pasta in olive oil.  Sprinkle remaining ingredients on top and mix well. 



  1. Gahhhh, I just left a comment and I don't know if it worked or not. So annoying. Glad you had a fun weekend!!

  2. Yay for the last little bit of pool time!
