Outing, picnic and pinterest

 It's hard to believe it's been over a month since I last posted! Life around here never seems to slow down! We've been extremely busy this summer. Besides all the normal housework and activities, we've had a lot going on in our lives. I hope to be able to catch up on blogging...so stay tuned and bear with me.

I'll start back in June. June is Valentine's month here in Brazil. We have an annual couple's outing to celebrate. This year we had a special place in a restaurant reserved just for us. We were able to decorate it and have some privacy from the other customers to do our own thing! It was so much fun! We had a wonderful time. We had roses, rose petals, candles, chocolates and soft, romantic music playing! It really was a fun evening for all the couples from our church. Many never go out on dates, so they look forward to this special outing every year.

 And just for the record, I'm so thankful for my husband! He's all I ever dreamed in a husband and I'm just so blessed to have him in my life. We're made for each other and that's the most amazing thing in this world!
The most amazing man on earth and I :)

Okay, okay...all mushiness aside, we'll continue!

Next up was our Fourth of July celebration...
My pictures are few because my camera was definitely having issues that evening. We had a wonderful picnic with yummy foods ;) 

Of course we made patriotic t-shirts....thanks to pinterest!

Talking about pinterest;
I'm finally trying out some of the things I've pinned. Some of the things, I absolutely love.....Others are okay...and then some are just total disasters. But 'tis the way the cookie crumbles. 

I'll have to work on a post on my pinterest fails...there's quite a few of them, and some are pretty hilarious and pretty stupid.. The last fail left my poor face looking red and I won't even begin to describe to you, the burning! Stupid, stupid, stupid. Can't believe I actually fell for it. What dingbat actually believes that cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon and honey will make your face look good?!? (raises hand)

Pretty sad....and miserable.

Don't try it! (Unless you want your face burning up for hours)..
ahem
So there, you've been warned!
That's all for now, folks! I need to get an ice-pack on my burning face...(sigh)
More coming soon.....
