I don’t have a single thing planned. We’ve gone home for the 4th the last couple years but, for a variety of reasons, that’s not happening so we’ll be watching the Fort Hood fireworks show from our backyard.
This week’s menu plan is ready and I’m drooling over it. Super excited about all of it.
Charred Corn and Bacon Guacamole – a delicious and easy twist on the classic! A super simple guacamole recipe with grilled corn and bacon!
Hey guys, happy almost Friday! I’ve got your weekend plans right here! Make up a batch before you head to the beach or the pool or whatever
When my mom was here last week, I was trying to sell her on Texas and I was all, “Mangoes are only $.50 in the summer! And avocados are 3 for $1! THREE AVOCADOS FOR ONE DOLLAR!”
Didn’t convince her to move here and help me take care of all my kids but hey, it really is one of my favorite things about Texas.
So yeah, I’ve been buying avocados by the dozen it seems like and then all of a sudden, they’re all about to go bad and I’m forced to make a huge batch of guacamole and then eat it all myself since my kids won’t touch it.
Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders – the easiest way to serve burgers to a crowd! Everything you love about burgers on Hawaiian rolls and covered in the most delicious glaze!
Hey guys, happy Tuesday!
I hope your week is going well. My mom left us to go back home but we’ve managed to survive so far.
We didn’t do much while she was here but we did end up at the lake a couple times.
We haven’t seen her since last summer so my littlest was excited to show her how he learned to swim in the lake a few weeks ago.
And there were doughnuts. And you guys know my favorite thing to do with a glazed doughnut is make a breakfast sandwich.
Plus, doing this single parent thing means that I’m having to take all the kids every where I go so it was nice being able to run some errands wihout worrying about kids asking for a million different things.

Summer means a couple things for my kids.
One: they’re stuck going on all my weird adventures. If I need to drive an hour for something for a blog post, they’re all going with me and we’re stopping at a taco place, a beach, whatever happens to be in my Yelp bookmarks on the way.
They’re already over it.
And two: all their friends move. Every summer, man. Every summer all their friends move. #armylife
It’s rough. My oldest always has a great group of friends at the end of the school year and then they leave and he’s bored.
So last year when it happened I get him his first phone. And this year I decided to upgrade the phone and his plan to make it easier for him to keep up with his friends.
And also to keep him entertained when I impulsively decide to drive across the state of Texas for perfect chips and queso.
