Citrus obsession

I love limes and lemons. When life gives you limes, make a margarita, is my motto. 

It seems like limes and lemons are a must on my grocery list these days. And not just one or two, but FIVE of each! I know what two certain mothers are gonna say, "ARE YOU PREGNANT?" Nope. Although I did Google and find that if you are craving citrus, you are having a girl. But, I'm sorry to tell you ladies that I'm not pregnant. Just loving all things citrus...with a bit of cilantro, avocado, tomatoes, onions and maybe a splash of tequila. 

So, here is my citrusy meal plan for the week!

Friday: Jalapeno and Mango Sausages with Potato Fries and Grilled Corn on the Cob with Jalapeno Butter

Tuesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Leftovers

Happy weekend!

Happy August!

Happy August, friends!

I can't believe its already here. The summer has really flown by with the summer heat being ridiculously hot. I am determined to enjoy the rest of my summer and attempt to be outside as much as I can. More swimming, walking, biking...hopefully no more staining the fence {see photo below}

That's me after 8 hours of staining our fence in the 100+ degree weather. The only good thing about this photo is that I look like a BA {Bad Ass}. And I wanted to kick one certain fellow's arse after shaking his finger at me for not staining the fence 2 months after he power washed it. But, HELLO!? Its seriously seriously hot out there. HOWEVER, I do think I lost like 5 lbs. of water from working outside, which made me smile when I stepped on the scale.

Anyways, I am a bad person. BECAUSE, I'm looking forward to the fall. UGH, I know, I know. Wasn't I just saying I was determined to enjoy the rest of the summer!? And I am. Seriously, I am. But, a girl can day dream, right?

I am down for all the things listed above. And little does the hubs know, but he is too!
