Thoughts for Thursday

Happy Thursday lovelies!! Today I am guest hosting the Thoughts for Thursday link-up with AnnieNatalie and Katie!  Join the link-up!  Write about anything you feel like, grab the button (below) and add your link!






One of my absolute favorite parts about summer is grilling.  We get to eat outside and I feel like we are eating healthier when we are cooking on the grill.  This was one of our recent meals.  Salmon with lemon, dill and butter, shrimp with butter and Old Bay and marinated chicken are my favorites!


We followed this up with a night of grilling at our friends'.  My friend (who is a whiz in the kitchen) suggested we grill kale and it was SO delicious! Throw it on a grill pan and go! So tasty and easy!

. . . 

While we cook, the kiddos play.  It gets them nice and tired for bed.  Anyone else love how extra tired their kids are during the summer?  

And by tired, I mean this.  Seriously, this was me trying to get him to wake up on Monday morning and he wanted nothing to do with it.  He doesn't have the get-up-and-go attitude yet.
. . .


I found this top at Forever21 the other day.  It is so cute! I love a good F21 find! I have had a lot of misses lately, so it was time for a hit!  Get it here!

. . .

Avery is in the middle of swim camp and it is so hard to amuse Greyson for the 30 minutes a day she is there.  He literally rolls around on the nasty indoor pool floor while we watch her.  It's also like a thousand degrees there so I hope I am losing weight with all of that sweat! Ha!

. . . 

Now that it is the middle of the summer I am back on the iced coffee wagon.  I need to get back off of it because I get too tired!  Thank goodness for Dunkin, Starbucks, and Trader Joe's cold pressed!

. . .

I met up with some of my friends in the city for a girls' night.  I love summer nights in the city with all of the windows open.  It is so much less crowded with half of the people gone for summer vacations.  When it is that hot out I have to wear all black.  
I love these sandals and they are on sale right now!

So. Much. Rose.

. . . 


And, finally, my little ham.  Avery won't let me take pictures of her lately, but this guy... he is a whole other story!

Thanks for linking up and hope everyone has a fabulous day!

  4. Why have I not done shrimp on the grill? So time to change that - and Old Bay is the perfect seasoning. Love your girl's night outfit - it almost looks like a romper. So cute!
