Life is Good.

Friday night Garth and I hung out with Garth's family. His mom made the most amazing meal and we had a great time hanging out. We also got to spend precious time with our gorgeous niece. I just cannot get over how fast she is growing up. She has the best manners and is as sweet as pie. Saturday we slept in and that was glorious. Then we went grocery shopping and out to lunch at this new restaurant that opened by us. Unfortunately the restaurant did not live up to our expectations. The food was bland and expensive, but I wish I had saved room for dessert - fried cookie dough. So we may just have to go back and try that. Then we walked next door and discovered the amazing Trader Joes. How have I never been there before?! We stocked up on some cool wines and some yummy chocolates.
Saturday night my brother and his fiance came over for a game night. Garth made the most amazing chicken fajitas complete with Coronas, chips, and salsa. Perfection. We had a great time playing games and eating good food.
Sunday we went to church and then out to lunch with my family. Then we spent the rest of the day being incredibly lazy watching TV and reading. Life is good.

Three buck chuck wine from Trader Joes is actually pretty tasty. Check it out next time you are there.

Oh, I love Trader Joes! I love their frozen meals - the brown rice is the best, heats up in 3 minutes and is perfect texture. Great to keep on hand when you need a quick side!
Sorry the new restaurant was a bummer.
