real life.

Summer is all about fresh from the garden lettuce, veggies and fruit not to mention tan skin, swimming, boating and vacations!!! When lunch rolled around today a salad topped with grilled chicken, peppers and strawberries sounded perfect! My friend Judy from GPP gave me some lettuce from her garden!
 (Thanks JUDY!) All the veggies were grown in the backyards of my friends/family.. yes. I know I need my own garden so I stop mooching off my friends.. but lets be real. I don't think I have gardened a day in my life and assured everything would die. 
the lettuce of my life

I love all the colors and flavors of this salad. Each and every bite was so good, I literally inhaled it. I also had an apple with cinnamon after to hold me over till later.

I could eat a garden everyday. That is for shizzle. 

So along with the combined birthday party a few weeks ago, we had an oppurtunity to be part of a new thing called "moving pictures" through Gallery Photography. Its a video combined with pictures of us just playing with our twins. Ever want to know what life is like with twins? Pure Bliss.

Okay, pure bliss yes, but you should of seen my sweaty pits by the end of this.. haha! Oh and don't worry, I did get my hair done finally yesterday. So ignore the 5 inch regrowth.. this is the real life.

Q. Favorite "Summer" food?
