acquire
the weekend went too, too fast.
since friday, my sister and future-brother-in-law have come and gone.
but before they left, we did a few things..
1. we reminisced about high school at a high school basketball game
2. we reminisced about the shoes that were cool in high school
3. we discussed the hopelessly confusing show that is lost
4. haley and i split a slice of carrot cake straight out of its take-home box
5. and as you can see, we left a slab of cream cheese frosting uneaten. signature move.
cakeeaten
6. i had a curling iron lesson. every girl should have one.
7. i've always been butterfingers when it comes to the curling iron.. until now. thanks, hales!
8. grant and derrick re-built our table (more on this soon)
9. we all went thrifting and found a couple of fabulous things, like a dresser (yay!)
10. haley and i bought matching 1/2 pint milk bottles
11. grant bought vintage walkie talkies, complete with 4-foot scope antennas
12. the boys ran to the store for batteries and bananas while the girls made lunch
13. haley and i flipped through magazines, wedding notes, and blogs
14. we fell asleep (or at least haley did) on the couch while watching the african queen
15. we drank root beer and caught some olympics
16. i got to sit next to my sister at church and hear her sing, just like how we grew up
17. and we played a serious game of acquire.. the best board game ever.
18. thanks for a great weekend, haley and derrick. miss you already. come back soon!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
