Slow down

This weekend we did practically nothing
and it was wonderful.

I feel like we've been on the go so much lately that it was nice to enjoy some low key time with each other.  

Sunday afternoon was gorgeous here, so we decided to head out to the "farm" and do a little shooting.
You know you're in South Georgia when....

I didn't shoot much, so this was my perch

T setting up the target

We forgot ear plugs, so we had to manage with some McDonald's napkins stuffed in our ears - even though we looked pretty dumb it worked pretty well :)

T shooting his shotgun

and me shooting
I was such a chicken about the whole thing, but it was fun!   

Once we got finished we decided to ride around the farm and check things out.  It was such a pretty day, but it is already hot here.  It was nice to get a breeze going after sitting outside for awhile.

Something about dirt roads...makes me want to belt out a Dixie Chicks song or something

Even dirt roads have stop signs...who knew?

Once we got home I decided to make some Quacamole (my fav) with my favorite mix - the seasoning makes the quac extra special! I've been told mine is the best!  And believe me, I don't make "the best" anything!
You can find it at Wal-Mart for like a dollar - its worth every penny.  Just add a tomato, some lime juice and avocado - perfection!

Can you believe that T doesn't like quac?
He says its too "slimy"
so more for me... :)

I also threw on a little Jimmy Buffet while getting dinner ready
Such a classic.   It just puts you in such a relaxed mood

For dinner we grilled out hamburgers (something we don't do enough of)

Birdie had to check out what was going on - don't worry she didn't get on the table, she has manners

The finished product.
Of course, I forgot hamburger buns so we improvised with hot dog buns.
Although it was a little cumbersome, it worked fine!

Dinner is served

(you can see in the background our backyard looks like a mud pit, well it is...for now!  We T will be laying some sod...very, very soon)

happy husband 

and here was our evening entertainment
Birdie on the roof
I've never seen a cat love to play on the roof like her!  I guess it her own personal playground!

Hope y'all had a great weekend - isn't nice to slow down every once in awhile!?

What a nice and relaxing weekend! Sounds perfect to me! Our household is usually the same - if we want hot dogs I only have hamburger buns and vice versa. :)
