Holy late August, where did August go? Seriously! This is getting to be ridiculous. Luckily, the summer continues to be awesome, so I can't complain too much. Last weekend, St. Joe was overtaken by Churches, when Brad's brother and family visited. Much hilarity ensued.
Sunday left Brad and me to our own devices. Beach picnic! (A habit I'm really beginning to like!)
If you look closely, you'll see the corn and blueberry salad I made, which is deeelicious. Check it out here. I'd put it together the night before for dinner with the fam, but due to a last-minute change (Chinese food!), it didn't really get eaten. Fine by me! This left us with lots for our Sunday picnic, and with the addition of feta, it was a hit. Of course, it goes even better with Italian herb pitas from the farmer's market. Also on the food front, quiche porn!
Did someone say porn? How about some knitting porn!
Our very dear friend Patrik, of Munich, has a new addition to his family, so I knitted up a little hat and picked up a cute Michigan onesie, shipping it across the pond earlier this week. Good thing I get a significant FedEx discount if I ship at work! Sheesh. :)
And then.... (and no and then!) I spent the day with Rachel. For realsies. Swoon.
This guy was there, too.
If you are asking yourself, "I wonder if he is wearing a hot pink thong underneath his speedo shorts?" The answer would be.... y-e-s.
Annnnnnnd then.... we drank some beer and shucked some corn! Who could ask for any more?!
