Favorite Things Party #4 with Blue Diamond Almonds

Favorite Things Party #4 with Blue Diamond Almonds

Hi there!

You ready for Christmas?  Just a few more days!!!!  I’m looking forward to this year but also looking forward to this month being over.  Just means I’m one more month closer until baby # 2 arrives!  Truth be told I don’t like being pregnant and am greatly anticipating June 🙂  6 more months!!!!!

Luckily I have some great friends to keep me busy and entertained.  Those said great friends joined me last week for my annual Favorite Things Party!

Who’s still melting in hot weather?!?  I am!  This week we’re back up in the 100’s.  Which I know is mild compared to those in places like Death Valley where it reached 120!  Do people actually live there?  Crazy!

The Love Nugget still insists on playing outside.  While I try to keep him indoors when it’s over 100 degrees it’s hard to argue when he’s happily playing in his sandbox while I try to get something done.  He’s in the shade so i usually allow him to play for a little while but then bring him inside to cool him down.  Which we do by enjoying lots of popsicles, frozen grapes, smoothies and smoothie bowls.

A Fun Theme Dinner with Blue Diamond Almonds!

A Fun Theme Dinner with Blue Diamond Almonds!

Happy Monday friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  It seems a little crazy that this is the last week of July!  With one month left of Summer (actually just a few weeks until The Love Nugget starts back at school) we are filling our weekends with lots of fun activities.  We have a mini vacation coming up to Monterey, are looking into a camping trip, and of course lots of time with friends!  This past weekend was one where we got to enjoy some fun summer adventures starting with a super fun, and delicious dinner at our good friends house.

WIAW – Healthy Lunchables for all!

WIAW – Healthy Lunchables for all!

Hi friends!

Aren’t three-day weekends great!  It seems like everyone would be generally happier if work weeks were only four days long.  Right!?!  I know I shouldn’t complain too much since I don’t work a full-time job and am mainly a stay at home mom.  I can see how much everyone looks forward to the weekend so why not make them three days long?  If only…

Anyways, its Wednesday.  As usual I’m joining Jen for another week of WIAW.  A fun way to share my daily eats and see what others are eating as well.

Honey Vanilla Almond Cashew Butter with Blue Diamond

Honey Vanilla Almond Cashew Butter with Blue Diamond

Who likes nut butter?

If you saw me you’d see both my hands up as I love it!

As does the rest of my household. Actually I’d say The Hubby and Love Nugget enjoy it more than I do if that’s even possible. I have such a hard time keeping my fingers out of the jar that I’ll often avoid having it in the house.  Which tends to frustrate my boys.

So I keep smaller jars of homemade Creamy Cashew Butter, Sunbutter or my latest Honey Vanilla Almond Cashew Butter in the cupboard.

Summer Entertaining with Blue Diamond!

Summer Entertaining with Blue Diamond!

Fun.

Barbecues.

Friends.

Entertaining.

Excursions.

Four words that pop into my head when I think of Summer and that we pleasantly enjoyed this past weekend.  We invited a few friends over for dinner Friday night and surprisingly pretty much everyone made it!  Summer is always so hard to find dates where people are free as it tends to be everyone’s busy time of year.  So we were pretty happy when we had a house full of friends over for a yummy abalone dinner cooked by my amazing hubby 🙂
